    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...

    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! :)

    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:)

    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. :)

    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.

    Gee doc, that's heavy...

    Great Scot!

    In all seriousness though, I have heard of these creatures before, but hounds of Tindalos honestly sound like something that would appear on a doctor who episode.

    That sounds awesome! When are you going to publish?

    Not for a while yet, that one would be a prequel anyway. My current book however is probably 2 or three years away from publishing, and there will still be plenty of monsters to see then.
