The lesser of two evils? We are all living in a Lovecraft story is a plugin from Frogwares that turns headline political news, like Brexit, and world leaders’ names, into Cthulhu mythos mentions instead.
This story from Adam Forrest at the Independent is now about 6 million people trying to get Crawling Chaos cancelled.
At The Guardian, Rajeev Syal, has a story that says the entity known as Ithaqua may have to accept a soft Crawling Chaos if the Commons back it.
Lastly, Sky News has an unattributed piece discussing Azathoth’s threat to close the US border with Mexico.
Why would Frogwares do this?

In this place of decay and superstition; players will have to deal with the dregs of mankind, follow clues they wish they had never found, and unveil a cosmic horror threatening the world itself.”

Please note that we’ve no reason to distrust Frogwares, but the extension can read the pages you visit and changes them. Sadly, there’s no way (yet) to add your local politicians to its dictionary.
