The whole crypt from the Mountains of Madness is in the setting.

Well there is an actual Call of Cthulhu tabletop game as well.

I have heard of it never played it though. One of my online mates in Denmark DM's them regularly and regales me with tales of the madness.

Also introduce me to the HP Lovecraft Historical society

RE: Call of Cthulhu
I have the complete works of Lovecraft on my Kindle as my daughter suggested i read some of his stuff. I haven't made a start on it yet but I'm going to listen to that video to get me started. Thanks for posting it.

RE: Call of Cthulhu
I've always wanted to give Lovecraft a try after playing the role playing game quite a few times. I eventually bought "Call of Cthulhu and other wierd stories" from Penguin Classics when I was at an airport once. I got to page 14. But after reading this thread I've just picked it out from my book collection and will take it home with me. I don't normally have time for fiction unless it's really easy going on the brain. I took this week off and read World War Z because it was something I could just pick up as and when I needed a short break.

Maybe I'll read the best stories from this book first. The first two stories were Dagon and The statement of Randolph Carter but I can't remember anything about them.

The statement is okay, as is Dagon. don't click the video if you don't want a spoiler though. All the songs they do are either a musical telling of the tale or based on his works.

RE: Call of Cthulhu
I like how Lovecraft writes. It feels like he's actually witnessed what he's describing.

Its unnerving. A true talent.
