    Everything was wrong with it, but I'd want to cite it so you would know what I'm talking about... 

    Lets just say it takes all creative rights away, half the profits, and tell you they reserve the right to republish without notifying or crediting the author. If you post else where on Drivethru, like the D&D area, they only take 20% and you retain the rights to your own work. The brp ogl also has a bunch of problems imo, but it's not as bad. 

    Thank you, my endgame project (at least for Miskatonic) is in the works:) 

    You said something about a website, but I'm pretty sure you can't use the CoC rules system to publish anywhere but MR.

    I'm planning on my next project being creating a rules light system loosely based on a horror film I really like. Then I'll be able to add to it and promote it through my channel and not have to worry about royalties or creative rights. 

    Wow, those are some pretty harsh restrictions, I can see why you are leaving them. You are also right that the BRP one doesn't sound nearly as bad as that, I will have to go through it more carefully later.

    With the website, I was thinking of making one to promote my project from once it was completed. I thought that it would be a better way to utilize the keywords, since my project is based on a public domain work and no one has made before. I will have to look and see if promoting from a site is legal here.

    I wish you luck on making your rule system and I hope you have lots of success with your channel as well. ;)

  2. Good video! I knew that CoC spells were more cosmic in nature than the standard D&D type spells, but I could never find any resources for them on the internet for me to use. After reading a lot, I came to the conclusion that they were more tailor made for the individual scenarios that being a standard list of spells. I found it very interesting that the spells are made to be more like scenes than utilities, it would make everything much more cinematic.

    Also, you said that you published a scenario on DrivethroughRPG, was it very difficult? Do you think promoting from a website would be better?

    Well okay then, is that an actual tale?

    Not really, so much as it is one of the most (in)famous stories from the table top gaming world. You can read about it here: https://m.1d4chan.org/wiki/Old_Man_Henderson  It is quite a hilarious story all and all, and it is where I got my name tag. Because of this story, there is even a scale named after Henderson to show how derailed a campaign can be.
