Jedi of a Lesser God: The Other Star Wars/Cthulhu Crossover

So, as promised, this is the flip side of my Star Wars crossover. This is bringing in a bit of the Star Wars universe into Call of Cthulhu. In order to curb a tendency of mine to use the d20 Cthulhu rules as much as possible, I’ll try to propose options for both d20 and BRP systems. Continue reading »

The Golden Locket, the Auburn Hair, and the Bones

This is a Christmas story. That said, it is not a story about Santa, or the Christ child, or Scrooge. It’s my Christmas story.

I am not a person given to a lot of nostalgia. I think I should make that clear from the beginning. I had left my old life behind me some years before to pursue the family business, and that had left no place in my life for Sandra. I knew she would not approve of my new lifestyle, so I never bothered to explain to her what had happened. She was ever a practical person, so I was sure she would mourn for a time, find someone new, and move on with her life. When I saw the golden locket around the neck of my latest subject, however, it reminded me of her. She had always worn such a locket, and, although this elderly woman was not her, it made me think, for the first time in ten years, about my Sandy. In a fit of nostalgia, I took the locket from her, knowing she would not miss it. Continue reading »

Special Announcement.

In a effort to generate more visitors to our site, we’ve been trying to actively recruit Cthulhu fans to visit shoggoth.net. Unfortunately we’re not finding fans fast enough for our liking. As such, we’ve begun manufacturing our own fans here in-house. That said, our RPG editor phobia got the ball rolling last night with a 8lbs 4oz girl named Rachel Lynn. Congratulations David, we wish you all the best.

NOTE:Your loyal webmaster will not be following in this as there are special agreements with the US government and NATO stipulating I can not breed.

The Bruce Report: Resurrected V

A short Bruce Report this week folks.  I don’t know if the holiday made the news trickle out slow or what.  Not much quality news.  On top of that, my wife was in and out of the hospital all weekend, so I was not exactly inspired to do much digging for the news.  Hopefully, next week, everything will be back on track.

This week we have: Spielberg’s conspiracy; Britain’s UFO Files; Nature’s Artwork; More on the Gorman Ranch; European skull could re-write American history; and Aryan UFOs under Antartica.

Servitors of the Spider-God, Atlach-Nacha

From “The Seven Geases,” a short story by Clark Ashton Smith, comes the Great Old One named Atlach-Nacha. Since like most other Great Old Ones Atlach-Nacha has campaign ending power, the keeper can now foil the best laid plans of investigators with a new, equally horrific, and slightly less powerful mythos creature that serves this Spider-God.
