Re: Reflections on downtime

All that was something our group liked not at all, contributing to us only lasted a month or two with the system. The events reminded me of 80's wandering monsters tables - or Warhammer Quest which had similar events, where they tried to ram some narrative into the space between the silly dungeon ba...

Re: HP Lovecraft

- indescribable horrors that are sympathetic to black protagonists. I'm curious what is meant by 'sympathetic' in this instance. An example might help. I'll keep it general to avoid spoilers. Some (but not all) of the Cthulhu-type creatures spare the black protagonists, meanwhile attacking the whit...

Re: HP Lovecraft

HBO have released the first episode of a based on Lovecraftian themes. Lovecraft Country. Deals as much with America's segregation era and Lovecraft's own racism as it does with the Cthulhu mythos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za8PP4xLHdQ&fbclid=IwAR0NqaDWko5C41LvNYuygRMmycvwqtz06GPFWJn-E6eZf3eA5...

Re: TOBCON IV

Zoom has proved to be the mvp of lockdown. Hadn't heard of it before. Our club shifted to online play once our community house shut. Tried roll20, but for all the system based mods you can install, it's clunky and slow. Seems to be the way it's browser based, with info going back and forth. The audi...

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

The 2nd ed' Tome of Salvation had some interesting splinter groups of the main deities. A 3rd option could be a long-dead, local sainted devotee of a deity. Revered for their local connection, or that they were the one that brought the greco-roman influence. Used to be more made of the divide betwee...

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

A Warhammer novel, "The Enemy Within" (with no connections to the wfrp campaign) has a bunch of gutter level Tzeentchian cultists. The old Beasts in Velvet novel had Tzeentchian cultists playing in the background. An Agitator (Yefgemy Yefimovich, or something) might have been born above the gutter, ...

Re: Greenskin Shamans

There's a thing with the greenskins,that the shamans are more powerful when in the vicinity of bigger numbers. So, one that's taken to surrounding himself with snotlings to up his power. Whether it should or not, the power of orcy belief makes it true enough, for him. Or has taken the next step to d...

Re: Organised crime in Altdorf

The hooks and fish also made an appearance in an early novel, Beasts in Velvet. A murder mystery, all the while a cult affiliated agitator does his thing, the hooks and fish are at war with each other. I don't recall there being enough gang stuff in it to warrant a read for research purposes. Good b...

Re: HP Lovecraft

I've never ventured into his actual fiction. Reports of casually assumed "ism"s on his part are enough for me. Enjoyed a bunch of the stuff based on it though. There's quite a lot. Remarkable really, that so much has been inspired by his work. Think Metallica did a song or two with his imagery, and ...
