I think we should split up to explore this dark and damp crypt faster! ūüėõ¬†

Great idea, but first I want to investigate this strange noise... You go on ahead, I'll be fine. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Um....

What is that?

 

 

 

 

 

Are they eyes? Or tiny flames? I think I should touch it, because I am super curious! The fire is cold as ice... The unseeing eyes... That face. A kindly smiling face, grinning from eye to eye. Blue as our new second sun. Reaching out to touch me... To feel me. I think I will scream to show my discomfort (screams), and now I will just stand still.... 46 and 2, the shadow becomes me to be in me from thee. My god... 

My true god... They are always watching... Oh hey! You look nice! I was just waiting here for ya:) You look great. Why do you mean it's been three days? I haven't been here for three days. You okay my friend? No? Well that's okay, I think you look wonderful. Your eyes sparkle... 

Why can't I move my legs? What have YOU done? My gods... They will not take kindly to this. In fact, I think you should come closer.

A little closer... I need you... You are so great! Your eyes I mean (reaches out and...)

SCREAMS are heard. My gods don't care, they just like the way blood pours from the socket. I can't feel my legs, but my third eye has opened...

I have an IDEA! Let's split up;)

Don't forget cheap flashlights with poor batteries, that is a must have. :P

In any case, copious amounts of bullets, fire, and explosives are enough to solve any problems one could encounter.

I try to make sure it's not that easy in my own games, but do any of Hp's stories have main characters using explosives or the like? I don't really remember if they did...

I have not read any of the books, though I have read plenty about them. Once I listened to the one about hounds and grave robbers, but that is it. So I cannot say if H.P.L ever had any one using explosives effectively against the monsters, though I doubt he did.

From what I have read, Lovecraft's protagonists were not the most... competent of adventures. Outside of the Dreamlands that is.

From what I understand DS, you play or GM horror story.
Where the Henerson guy play weird stories..
The protagonist might be the same, but the flavor and rationality and result is different! ;)

To use reference I know better... I would say DS you play "Alien", where bullet only serve to prove your hopelessness againt the Exomoprh, whereas Henerson play Predator (1), where there is a mysterious powerful Alien.. But he bleeds like the rest of us...

This is quite true, and that makes my interaction with @Old Man Henerson very interesting, to me at least. We have fundamental difference in taste and yet seem to agree on many things. Plus intriguing conversation always grows out of difference of opinion:)

Yep, that about sums up my tastes. :P When I learned about the Cthulhu Mythos, I was utterly fascinated with how strange and alien all the monsters were, they were a far different than all the villains and monsters I had seen elsewhere.

For me, they seemed like the most ultimate and powerful enemy any hero could face, I thought it was a pretty epic concept. Due to my faith though, I just was not a fan of the whole lose your mind from from the sheer weirdness part of the mythos. To paraphrase Captain America, "There is only one God, and he does not have tentacles.

As a result, I took the Predator approach like you said, my motto here is if it bleeds, we can kill it, and if that fails, GET TO DA CHAPA and try try again! :)

It kind of reminds me of how H.P.L and Robbert E. Howard were said to be like together. Both liked working with mythos themed adventures, but they both approached it from different angles. Good differences make the world go round, and give us all something new to think about. :)
