Nightmare Fuel: Call of Cthulhu

The Tabletop Game

  • All the typical Lovecraft stuff; cosmic horror, zombies, unfathomably ancient aliens etc...But then consider all the other mythos writers' creations that show up...And then add in some of the scenario writers' creations.
    • Y'golonac, the god of the bad touch. (YOU FOOL! YOU'VE DOOMED US ALL!!)
    • The monster that causes the problems in the scenario Crack'd and Crook'd Manse. A particularly graphic description plus the investigators realising just how big it is can call for a pretty rapid exit strategy from the characters. And the players.
    • The scenario The Colour of his Eyes from the San Francisco sourcebook. A man has a Colour Out Of Space (basically a form of sentient, malevolent light) trapped in his eyes, and he drains the energy from (and kills) anything he looks at.
