    Meretrix got a reaction from GBI in Shining Aquas' Creation Workshop - Eldritch Horror Edition!   
    Just because that garbage exists does not justify the existence of more garbage. Of course the majority will always lack taste so are naturally drawn to mediocrity. They don't know any better after all.
    Personally I'm not even a fan of FFG's investigators either. Most of them have no place in a Lovcecraft story. If it were up to me 80% of the investigators would be stuffy old Miskatonic professors.

    Evil? Good? All are one in Yog-Sothoth, Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.  Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

    Because nothing is sacred anymore and frankly it's offensive seeing the subject matter treated this way. I guess it's the way of the future. I have spent my life watching the generations of tomorrow tearing down and perverting the beauty and majesty of the past. I come to these forums to discuss Lovecraft themed games, not to see weeaboos peddle their child porn.

    Meretrix got a reaction from Jobu in [Next Cycles] Possible narrative arc in the future !   
    His stories are certainly open to criticism, all stories are. It's easy to judge older stories by today's standards. Many of the things we consider cliche were new ideas at the time. But saying he wasn't a very good writer is nonsense. Lovecraft's  ability to evoke a setting, mood or feeling is legendary.
     
     
    LOL OK I'm outa here.

    To be fair, the mythos doesnt take lovecraft very seriously. While he may be the father that sparked all of this, from what I understand he wasn't a terribly good writer. 
    We're probably better off without the hard purist approach

    Egypt is more about the resonance with the setting than Lovecraft's actual work (though, obviously, Nyarlathotep is one of his most important recurring figures). Ancient Egypt was a huge fad at the time, with King Tut's tomb being discovered in 1922. Plus, thanks to The Mummy and Indiana Jones, adventures in Egypt are about as iconic to the 20s as speakeasies and flappers.

    Mountains of Madness is one of Lovecraft's most famous stories. Certainly more significant than his throw-away Houdini commission.

    There is no reason to limit your deck building pool. The pack the player cards are released in is completely arbitrary. The game is designed to use any cards for any scenario.
