On the First Day of Christmas
My GM gave to me,
Dread Cthulhu dreaming ‘neath the sea.
As the holidays approach, we wanted to continue a TRF tradition we began last year, spending the 12 Days of Christmas celebrating things we love in RPGs. This year our carols focus on our favorite monsters, creatures, and adversaries to bring into our games. Next year, I’ll finally figure out how to make the whole song about dice.
So many of the games we love to play are based on Cthulhu Mythos, so I’m not sure how much of an introduction he really needs. We started out the show trying to cram him and the mythos into everything we did, now we’re giving him a little more room to breathe. Cthulhu has been through many iterations as he has come more into public awareness, from Kawaii Cthulhu to Political Cthulhu, but hopefully we’ll never be foolish enough to stop fearing him. If we do, I’ll be sure to run a game that culminates in the party seeing him, in all his indescribable glory and watch as their sanity finally slips away.
