* KillerGameMaster: A necessity in a game where the dead [=PC=]s are the ''lucky'' ones. However, this does not appear to be the written intent of the game. At least the 5th and 6th edition core rulebooks actually encourage the [[GameMaster Keeper]] to come up with alternatives to simply killing off Investigators, such as having monsters choose to target Non-PlayerCharacters instead, having intelligent monsters avoid stupid direct confrontation, and finding alternative bizarre fates to characters dying outright. On the other hand, despite these recommendations, the fragility of the player characters and the game's attractiveness to a KillerGameMaster are quite real, as is the tendency for protagonists in the material on which the game is based to meet unpleasant endings.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyBook: The Franchise/CthulhuMythos books:
** Reading most of these books causes the reader to lose points from his Sanity score proportional to the power and usefulness of the book. This can cause insanity (temporary, indefinite or permanent), depending on how many points are lost.
** Some of the contents of the books are dangerous in other ways. For example, reading even a page of ''The Revelations of Glaaki'' can cause the reader to become aware of the deity Y'golonac, which allows it to possess and destroy them.
