::In case you were wondering about the math behind this: 4D6 amounts to a minimum of 4 and maximum of 24 damage per shot with 2 shots per turn of combat. 2 x 24 = 48 per player. Assuming all dice rolls go perfectly, 8 players firing simultaneously looks like (2 x 48) 8 = 768 points of damage. The worst possible roll would look like (2 x 4) 8 = 64 points of damage. Assuming average rolls (3.5, the average between the average rolls of 3 and 4), that's 448 points of damage per turn of combat!

* SupernaturalFearInducer: The King in Yellow has an attack that literally causes those who look into his eyes to be paralyzed with fear... and generally, causes the character to lose Sanity in the process.

One of the most famous TabletopGames of all time, ''Call of Cthulhu'' combines the adventurism and teamwork of Tabletopgame/DungeonsAndDragons with the LovecraftianFiction setting of the CthulhuMythos. Your adventurers, or rather investigators, are dropped into scenarios right out of a Lovecraft story, and must keep their wits about them; the goal of every ''C.O.C.'' campaign is not so much to ''defeat'' the Enemy, but to ''survive'' Its horrendous onslaught while following the mystery out to its bitter -- [[KillerGameMaster and usually grim]] -- end.
