RPGPundit 2 June at The Old Ones and their minions will in my mindover a long period of time, get blown carcoa by men armed to the teeth.
Only a member of this blog may post a comment. Brian February 16, at In his defense, McKinney compares himself yet again to another old-school great, M. The only other compliant I have with it is that the PDF is, as a practical matter, utterly unprintable.
I don’t think, anyway. I love the idea of Cthulhu cycle ideas, monsters, and carccosa in a science fantasy setting. I like the idea of Carcosa as an entity.
I’d like to see more pdf based products do this. The end result is that carcoss the book”, the races all just blend r;g without anything to really make them special except maybe the Bone Men ; of course, a GM might go to the trouble of trying to create cultural differences for himself, but as I’ve noted before this strikes me less like some kind of great stand for homeruling and more like laziness on the part of the writer.
Figured out cool hotspots on the map and planned a potential itinerary around them.
Carcosa (RPG setting)
If you want a print version, rpy not buy the book? Very little, except to the extent that Carcosa isn’t a setting that explicitly lauds let alone rewards altruism, honor, or civilization. So how a character chooses to deal with the situation is still completely up to the player. But I see your point. Is Carcosa actually He-Man?

The hex descriptions are great for any science-fantasy setting.

This is why, even if the original file didn’t have improperly synchronized page numbers, it still would have been a bad idea: I’ve never liked what happens to players if they figure out how to operate the telescope. Standard weapons fpg do “1 die” of damage, meaning that you never know until a battle begins whether your trusty longsword or bow, or dagger will do 1d4 or 1d12 damage.
I explained that myself, in a reply below, four days ago.
Again, lore stuff but also it’s much more fun to have historical figures or past PCs show up as reinforcements instead of just playing weird technicolour barbarians when your PC bites the dust. That’s the only reason why I’ve put forth so much effort trying to dispel some of the untruths perpetrated against and perpetuated about Carcosa. Brian February 16, at 6: So I’m wondering what part of that would seem like a Call of Cthulhu game to your players? Oh god, my brain is overloading carcoss post-revelation Carcosa ideas.
