    Just curious how those who play or run Cthulhu use the system. Please check all that apply.

    I've never run a straight Cthulhu game. However, I have many of the modules and the monster books just because they were excellent resources for a dark world (not WoD - just a game that was placed in a tainted world) game I did run.

    Actually, I've never played a straight-up Cthulhu game either. I have played Delta Green, and it was one of my all time favorite TPK's.

    For future reference, if I say that there's a sniper across the lake with a Barrett .50 cal, don't ask a bunch of stupid questions about how I know it, just duck. Otherwise, the entire affair will end in flaming badness. Trust me in this matter.

    Thank you,
    Your friendly neighborhood Horrible Mod

    I don't exactly play CoC. I play Bureau 13 with guest appearances by the Lovecraftian horrors.

    Any way I can get it is how I play. I like to have a game of it rather than just a one shot every now and then.
    Normal people worry me.

    We use Unknown Armies. The madness meters are far superior to the madness tracking systems in any other Cthulhu games that have been published.

    I love Call of Cthulhu, unfortunately I almost never get to play it. One of the players in our group refuses to play anything he dubs as a "victim game". CoC is at the top of his list.

    How do I Cthulhu?

    As a diehard, Call of Cthulhu and BRP fan, anyway I can. It seems that the Cthulhu Mythos leaks into just about any campaign I run.

    I notice I'm not alone. Cthulhoid monstrousities are common place in D&D. The first published 4ed module had a distinctly Cthulhu-esque flair about it (evil cultist, portal to another world, a thing from beyond).

    RPGs and horror often go hand in hand and was there a more influential horror writer of the 20th century than H.P. Lovecraft?

    I think not.

    Gary
