Tesral. As a Lich I'm sure he's got contacts with things that should not be. He'll sort that out.

Just one more wake-up call that us arrogant humans dont know everything. Cool artical, btw.

I'm starting to feel inspired about a new module due to this article. Think i'll let the idea stir a bit and see what i can make of the final results.

Yep, i get ideas from the strangest things.

Very true. I've always meant to read his writing but never been able to find the time to do so. One day, perhaps.

Very good stuff if you like "creeping horror" and "lurking fear". His writing is sometimes antiquarian in that he uses a lot of outdated or obscure dialect (even by the standards of his time), but that is part of the experience if you ask me. Lovecraft's horror is the horror of slow realization of humanity's utter insignificance in the face of the unimaginably ancient universe. Far superior IMHO to the "slasher" or "shock" horror that is so common today.

I appreciate the suggestions for i will look into those first. I also like obscure and outdated dialects in regards to writing which is why i do love to read some of Aleister Crowleys material. Genius, he was.

Further proving that the Interweb makes things true: Miskatonic University is listed with the research team over on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamburtsevs) ;)
