Is magick real? Could it just be an as yet unknown form of quantum physics? Lovecraft oftentimes used scientific theories to explain the supernatural and occult. In the end, Lovecraft's cosmic indifference supports Gerard 't Hooft and Leonard Susskind's Holographic Universe principle; we don't matter especially because none of this is real.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with our anime style tentacle girl that we had commissioned back in 2014. Now, there's a statuette of an anime girl named Cthulhu.
A female anime character with a similar style and color scheme, no problem, that happens a lot. Even one that is specifically named Cthulhu and meant to be an anime school girl representation, we could let slide because they've already done that with Nyarlathotep. But the hair tentacles? No, fuck you. You stole our shit. Not like we can do anything about it, in fact, I'm sure I'll even pick one up. And unfortunately this kind of thing happens all the time. I guess it just proves that the First United Church of Cthulhu is spreading further every day.
People like to dismiss Lovecraft as either just a man of his time or yeah, he was pretty racist. But that is inaccurate and brushes off a difficult topic for many to talk about, when there is much deeper, darker reasons for Lovecraft's behavior. Take a look inside the mind of Lovecraft. . .
The city of Detroit has become a multidimensional warzone. The United States military has sent in black ops groups to contain the area and eliminate any threats, whether cosmic or domestic. Every day, more cultists and mad men pour into the city. Horrific creatures from beyond space and time tear through realities only to emerge in the heart of Motown.
Whether you are here to harness the powers that are corrupting and destroying the city or you are here to stop it, you're in for the fight of your life!
Detroit Apoc City contains very short stories and the back of the book includes quick start rules for Don't Let Them Take You Alive an action horror roleplaying game set in the world of the Modern Cthulhu Mythos. The game is compatible with Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition and other d100 systems + easily convertible to the d20 system.
It includes a map of post apocalyptic Detroit and random encounter tables with 200 building/location types.
