  1. I first discovered Lovecraft in a card game called Cthulhu Fluxx, then I bought his collected fiction and Call of Cthulhu 7 edition (which is my favorite RPG system to date). Almost none of my friends have ever even heard of the guy, and I'm wondering, what else has he inspired? I know there's a movie called The Reanimator, and that authors like Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch, and even Stephen King were influenced by the grandfather of cosmic horror, but what else? What is the collective influence of Howard Philips Lovecraft?
  2. In short terms: Do you know any good cosmic horror/lovecraftian adventures for Call of Cthulhu? Either 7th or previouse editions. In not to short terms: I have been playing Call of Cthulhu since the 5th edition, but all the published adventures I have read and run are not exactly what one would call cosmic horror or lovecraftian. The classic haunted house is a ghost story, and one of the scenarios in the Keeper's Rulebook isn't exactly horror/mystery, but more gun action oriented (as the 7th edition tends to be, anyway). The second scenario is much better but terribly wordy and hard to prepare. Do you kknow any good adventures for CoC, that are cosmic horror or more in the Lovecraft vein? Lovecraft almost never wrote about cultists and gangs of investigators fighting with guns, much less with regular guys punching monsters in the face. I know it's not easy to capture Lovecraft style into a game, but that's why I'm asking if you know any adventure like that. Even if not for CoC.
  3. I re-watched Hammer Films' 1967 Quartermass and the Pit and was struck by how Lovecraftian the whole thing is. You've got ancestral taint, ancient aliens, mutant humanoids, a history of supernatural occurrences, and a threat to sanity and all humanity. You've got inexplicable phenomena that leave even the smartest man in the room, Bernard Quartermass, speechless.
