I’m working on a Cthulhu Dark thing for New Mexicon in a couple weeks and it’s so genuinely upsetting to me that I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish it, or run what I’ve come up with.

Ye gawds parenthood has made me a softie.

  1. Is there a way friends could help you get it done? I work on transcription, if that would help, of if you need tables/arts or what not.

  2. It’s also a testament to the effectiveness of the ideas and procedures in the book, I should add.

    I usually run from my gut and a vague sense of the underlying fucked up thing that’s driving the horror. But Graham’s process makes me really linger and dig. I’m making myself squirm with discomfort!

  3. Given the Cthulhu Dark rules fit on a page and are free on the internet, paying for the book instinctively seems crazy. However, I agree Graham W’s chapters on seeding a story with lurking dread and such are worth it.

  4. That’s what I meant, Paul Beakley: we’re so used to game systems being sold on the rules and world that a book with hardly any rules based on a world that’s free from Project Gutenberg feels dissonant for a moment.

    Jesse Coombs: indeed. I have a copy of Stealing Cthulhu sitting next to the sofa at the moment.
