H.P. Lovecraft, the racist grandfather of cosmic horror, has his 130th birthday today. He was born on the 20th of August, 1890. He would be 130.
It’s a good month for fans of the author aspect of Lovecraft’s brain, then. Here in the UK Now TV has Lovecraft Country so we can watch HBO’s new show without committing to a contract with Sky. Just Crunch Games also has 25% off The Cthulhu hack.
The Cthulhu Hack is a standalone RPG of horror and investigation. Characters risk their sanity as they discover a little more about the horrors of Lovecraft’s monsters and deities.
The revised edition is 52-pages long and includes simple mechanics, ready-to-play character archetypes, shambling hordes and the Save Innsmouth adventure. There’s even a Pay What You Want quickstart available if you’re cautious about money right now.
