That's sad.

WoD is a genre inversion where you play the creatures that hunt innocent humans (when they're not busy with internal politics).

CoC is classic Horror. Not Hollywood B-movie Splatter but slow surreal dread in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe. Lovecraft perfected this in a flavorful alternate reality close to our own. And CoC is as true to its source as possible.

So, to my knowledge The King in Yellow (the fictional play) has never actually been detailed. Which is probably for the best since it'd take a lot of the magic out of the whole story.

Still, what do you like to imagine the play was about?

Personally, I think it'd be interesting if it was about a kingdom who tried to mess with mythos shit and had it backfire in a tremendous way. The only one who was not eradicated/has even a shred of their former self is the king, who is left to contemplate their folly for eternity. Entirely even almost certainly sparked by Nyarl.

Better not rape his queen before he shows her the glory of undeath and unites their armies.

..... That is now the DMPC/Plot of the next adventure I run. A lovecraftian horror from the Far Realm is writing the equivalent of a field guide for other non-euclidian entities visiting the material plane, and is attempting to study the 'minimally sentient' species of the area by ingratiating itself into one of their social groups and observing their natural behavior without interfering.

>TFW it needs to start making its own Sanity checks because it's dealing with rigidly defined euclidian monsters (the PCs) too much.

Don't. Just Don't

I gave my players a rock, engraved USELESS. It weighted 300 pounds. And was the size of a pebble.

One guy kept it for three games, for his good sport, i made it a summoning vessel for a high spirit servant. But I was intending on just making it useless.

So I have the idea for a homebrew modern fantasy (feel free to have this thread devolve into free RP later) But here are a few things I am putting into a homebrew for a campaign with friends.

>Typical fantasy races exist
>Science and Magic coexist and work together to form magitek future (Arcane ware computers)
>Civilization is series of small mostly independent city-states that are self sufficient aside from luxury items and machine/magic parts
>Standard medicine is far more reliable than magical means
>Small scale plannar raiding of the material plane is fairly common
>There is always someone trying to set up their own kingdom that has to be shut down (evil overlord quests abound!)
>magic is regulated in very much the same way explosive chemicals are

Races
>Orcs are masters of barbeque
>Some humans are null-magic and are immune to all forms of magic including healing, some project anti-magic fields around them

I want to publish it, don't worry about copyright its my own spin. It was only inspiration, I want create the world from the image. But aside that fact. I don't know the first thing about publishing a book. I written a few, more than 60K words. But I often just have them there, with no one to read them. Only a friend or two to review them.

Some guy over in /k/ dumped a bunch of pictures when he was off in Winter Mountain Warfare training, they're quite nice. I believe he was a Canuk, so somewhere up North.

It's fine as long as your PC's know a damn about Asian culture and tie it into the whole Mythos feeling. Of course, a lot of people who do want to play Japanese characters are the ones who don't know anything about Asian culture beyond what they see in anime.

I for one could see entreaties to Yog-sothoth when dealing with severe time anomalies being pretty effective. I mean, it's a pretty chill outer god, and time anomalies are probably like rashes for it, since it technically comprises all of time and space as we know it.

But don't fucking make any deals with Nyarl. You KNOW that shit never fucking works out, you're just giving the chucklefuck his jollies by letting him toy with you.
