Some of you may or may not have noticed the little link to the right side of this webpage; the one titled "The Legendary Pixel Crew". It's a new sprite-based webcomic that I'm planning on starting up some time soon. It uses sprites taken from lpc.opengameart.org/

In other news, Call of Cthulhu exists in this universe! Huzzah! ^_^

The films might not, though. >_>

I strongly doubt any lesser director could make a real H.P. Lovecraft movie decently. It would take a very talented and skilled director to make it feel like a Lovecraft story makes you feel.

I concur. While I could see an asian or european studio pulling it off, I highly doubt Hollywood would be able to. There's not much of a market for material where everyone is dead or insane at the end, where the evil is hardly ever shown, and the pacing is extremely slow.

Christopher Walken demands all of your food! Also, I tried to play Call of Cthulhu once. I didn't understand the character making process so I deleted the files I downloaded.

"Sounds legit"

Seems like you were playing the right way to me.

"Have you made your characters?"

Yes? Good, they're all dead!
Have you made your *second* characters?
Good! They're all dead, too!
Okay, this time, make your characters... and only HALF of them die! YAAAAAY!

This also describes Paranoia, except that your second characters might be your first characters again!

So in other words, the only winning move is not to play. Good to know! ^_^

"Clarification Necessary"

Citizen Raxos. Are you divulging classified information to Infra-Red-Clearance Citizens?

No, Friend Computer. I was clarifying what they already know. If it is above their clearance level, they should not have known in the first place! They are traitors!

So Paranoia is basically "Throw Your Friends Under The Bus: The Game".

what are these "freinds" you speak of? It is Throw Communist Mutant Traitors Under the Bus but only if the bus is of the proper clearance level.

The computer is our friend. Why would we want to throw the computer under a bus - whatever that is?

i'm sorry citizen but the existence of commies or mutants is yellow clearance or higher and you all must now be put through the judgment shoot, those of you who meet the clearance level will be given 'cold happy'

"Send in the clones"

That was the name of a prepackaged Paranoia adventure module with that very theme.

I take it as a point of pride (mostly because I'm crazy that way and don't take pride in things that are worth being proud of) that my only attempt at CoC ended up with an entirely logical train of events.
Mind you, it only ended logically because the group disbanded at the 'perfect' time, but still.
Short version: We arrive, nothing goes right, armed men come looking for the artifact, things go even worse, and the group disbands on the basis that CoC was the wrong game for them.
We never went back to the game.

I like to imagine that shortly after we leave, the entire city gets swallowed by various eldritch abominations, while my scientist goes on to get rich once 9/11 conspiracies start becoming popular (his thing was doing research for hire, and according to the stats he's quite amazing at it)
