Last 20 Shouts:

I'm calling the depth of each rule set game space. So the more equipment I add it for players to acquire, the more game space there is. More aliens to shoot and be shot by, more game space. And so on.
Discussions tend to grow and continue. I'm just asking everyone to be mindful of that, and use the thread (that already exists) for anything of substance.

Now I'll stop filling up the tavern telling people to not fill up the tavern. tongue


Well I know that, I just wanna know what the_taken means by "game space developed as possible"
This already has a thread, so I don't even have to ask you to make one. tongue


Care if I ask what you mean by that?
Update Get!

I have another playtest this Friday, and I want to get as much game space developed as possible.


There are deers with fangs.


You're not wrong.
I have interrogated sparkbot as to everyone's whereabouts. She remains silent, but I suspect treachery


I was thinking the same thing.
This more than needs a thread by now.
That's interesting. One way of thinking about the two monsters is that Godzilla is essentially allegorical - he has a particular meaning, atomic power. Chthulhu's meaning is way more elusive; he's as much about antimeaning and the essential meaninglessness of things as he is a symbol or metaphor for anything.


So if Cthulhu were willing to take a level in Bard he could totally win! All jokes aside, While I'm not the Lovecraft Guru I wish I was, I am very familiar with Godzilla on a philosiphical level. They seem to represent two different ethos in my mind. Both are always-existing crisis that are inevitably going to come and wreck our way of life. Cthulhu though is all about the horror we feel when facing our insignifigance in the universe. Godzilla is something else entirely. He's a political statement about the misuse of science, and the unintended consequences thereof. But that's understandable. Scientists have studied Godzilla, they track him, they know him inside and out. There's nothing they can really do about him, but they understand him. A Godzilla vs Cthulhu movie needs to happen though. It's perfectly legal for Toho to do it to.


Then why did you bring it up on the internet? Don't you know how this place works?
I tend to think that his powers aren't really the point of the story. I was being very facetious with my godzilla matchup :p
Him stirring in his sleep sparked a global wave of murders and suicides so it stands to reason that he'd cause even more chaos awake.
That's all he needs to be to wipe out all life on Earth, but I believe like most Mythos gods, his presence induces insanity.


Ok I've read Call of Cthulhu, but what kind of "power" does he have? Is he just big and unkillable?
I think part of the problem is that Lovecraft was writing in a time before atomic bombs or even major tank warfare, so to him and readers at the time, the boat crashing into Chthulhu reads as a lot more "powerful" than it does to us.
