Thinking of getting this book. Does anyone here have experiance using it? is it worth the price tag? 40ish dollars
Never heard of it, but why no crop?
Care to explain where you found it, what the tone is, and how it spins the lore?
Honestly, start with Chambers. The King in Yellow is a short collection, and you have to know the origin.
If you are looking for a quality modern Carcosa, check out Impossible Landscapes when it drops in August (we hope!)
I assume you've seen True Detective s1? It's very low key, but it uses some symbolism and references.
Don't do it. Just don't. 40 dollars will buy you at least two pizzas, depending on how fat you are.
The premise at least sounds interesting, but the execution sounds terribly mediocre.
That said, I actually agree with Raggi's defense of it in principle. There's no point in getting outraged that a game has some gruesome subject matter, it's just trying to evoke a certain feel, where sorcerers are genuinely evil motherfuckers.
>The setting is highly evocative
>The art is great and production values very high
>A lot of the book is taken up by repetitive lists of hex contents and rituals.
>The mechanical aspects are dated and dodgy.
Call it a flawed gem. I've attached a fan supplement for it that might give you an idea of the kind of setting it is.
Halloween Jack is an idiot who spends way too much time sperging about things he hates.
