Me and a few buddies played Call of Cthulhu as a birthday treat on saturday. I’ve noticed a few things about CoC and Its ability to scare people.
I have also noticed that the same players who, in d&d, blunder in at every oppertunity and hack and slash everything that moves, In CoC become more reserved, more patient. They do not desire action and adventure because action and adventure, more often than not, lead to madness and death.
That is the Greatness of CoC, players feel threatened before they have even stepped foot into the haunted manse, or the unknown temple. Then the game lures them into a false security with friendly NPC’s and long peroids of quiet and research. Only to deal the hammer blow at the end.
No other game does it quite like the Call of Cthulhu.
Off to a weekend of LARPing, won’t be online! Love you all ♥
Corgi friends don’t let corgi friends beach LARP.
Dungeons, Dragons, & Philosophy
I made a mini documentary for my final philosophy project! :D
Y’all should tell me what you think of it!
Larry Elmore posted this to larryelmore.com :
This new print is titled “Circle of Death”, 24×36 inches on heavy art paper. It is a signed and numbered limited edition print of 1500. This painting is going to be the cover for my new hardback book, “The Complete Elmore”. I enjoyed painting this piece, it reminds me of the old Red Dragon painting, the Basic D&D box cover, but at a much more mature level. The dragon and the warrior appear to be much older, in this painting, and much more experienced. My art ability has grown also during the past thirty years. The painting tells a story, much like the full circle of my own life as an illustrator. I hope you enjoy this painting, as much as I enjoyed painting it.
And now we tune back into the goings-on of druidess, ranger (actually ranged ranger), fighter gnome, and el rogue.
With three new folks in this crew, they learned what it means to take the gloves off. They started hitting harder, so the NPCS did too! I think we counted 3 of four KOs that night.
But not to fear! there is always a cure potion nearb—- wait, what? You’re out too??? Crap…
