Gorgon Milk has cobbled together a scrapbook of Cthulhu Mythos-related D&D stuff from the late 70s and early 80s.It's been inspired by this post at Zenopus Archives, the pdf contains a whole host of Cthulhu goodness.
It contains The following:
- "THE LOVECRAFTIAN MYTHOS IN DUNGEONS & DRAGONS" by Robert Kuntz
- "THE CTHULHU MYTHOS REVISITED" by Gerald Guinn
- "A REBUTTAL TO 'THE CTHULHU MYTHOS REVISITED'" by J. Eric Holmes
- "H. P. LOVECRAFT'S RICHARD UPTON PICKMAN" by L. Schick and T. Moldvay
- Deities & Demi-Gods: "CTHULHU MYTHOS" by James Ward with Robert KuntzI can't even begin to explain the utility of this information to someone like me. As a DM who regular plays around with the Mythos in D&D and AD&D first edition this is simply a really nice suppliments. The pdf contains all of the esentials that you need to run both OD&D and AD&D versions of the usual Lovecraft suspects within your old school games.The material holds up even after all this time and I've been toying around doing a revamp of Carcosa using the Stars Without Numbers rules set for more detailed play. This pdf is just the thing to get that started. Its by no means Realms of Crawling Chaos but it hits all of the high notes. The material is that good and I'm seeing this material with Rose colored glasses. Best of all its free right over HERE
Did I mention its free.
