More Background on the Game’s Mythos Roots…

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land info pageWe’ve written a couple of articles about the background of the game and the influence of World War 1 in it’s making.  However I also want to point you to the excellent hppodcraft.com – it’s an ongoing free literary podcast that works through the writings of Lovecraft with readings from them and their comment on them.  The two of Lovecraft’s works that have most influenced this game (and links to the HP Podcraft shows) are:

  • Herbert West: Reanimator (Part 1 & Part 2) – The show also features Stuart Gordon, the director of the great 80s film version of the story.
  • Call of Cthulhu – The title of the game, the RPG and what many consider (including me) to be Lovecraft’s finest work.  The HP Podcraft version is in 3 parts; Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3.
