Wasted Land on Adventures and Shopping

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land info pageAdventures and Shopping is a great blog about paper role playing games and various other things.  The blog’s author, Billiam Babble, has done a great write-up about Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land.  Here’s a sample:

I still think that World War I is an absolutely fabulous setting for encounters of the Mythos kind (previous post on CoC:The Wasted Land).  The disposability of mankind in the First World War is subject which still which disturbs most people who take the time to reflect, especially upon the sheer statistics of death involved.  Artists during and after the Great War questioned social structures, their supposed superiors and even religion.  Self doubt and nihilism is futile ground for the cultists of the mighty Cthullhu and his brethren.  This was a period of unparalleled voluntary and compulsory sacrifice for crown and country.  Discoveries and scientific invention was perhaps encouraged on all sides.  Mustard gas and machine guns, the mud and death.  Who knows what secrets there still are sealed in vaults and hidden in mass graves, what really happened to the platoons that which disappeared in the mud?

Worth reading the whole thing, IMHO. A big thanks to Billiam for that, and to all the sites and forums who’ve covered the game – its really affirming when you’re a small indie developer following a passion project to get so much support from people!
