Because HPL was born in 1890?

Yes, that and the Call of Cthulhu games that take place in Victorian times are set in the 1890s. But yes, Lovecraft himself is a product of the 1890s,

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

I was surprised by the reality perks but I forgot that Mobius had one as well. I suppose it makes sense that the High Lords have access to the secrets of reality; what’s amazing about Core Earth is that “average” stormers there have those abilities too. Core Earth is the Uber Cosm, that’s why it’s ...

Re: When do you allow subplots to be played in combat?

We’ve always played subplot cards out of our pools, and of course you can discard as soon as it’s handed to you if you don’t want to play it. That’s never seemed to get in our way. (My character is a LL savage with a Mind of 5 who has the intellectual capacity of a child. I’ve always considered a ro...

Re: What defense do I use?

I'm confused how "a Barrett M82 and shooting it, not swinging it around as a club" results in unarmed defense. You can used unarmed (and presumably melee) to defend against pistols at melee range? It's not always dodge against firearms? Actually, you can’t use Dodge against any firearm at...

Re: Aysle Preview #3 - Perks

It seems fair to be able to mix Outsider with Light or Dark. The Outsider Perks seem to be double-edged already so don’t need any additional down sides.

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

As things stand now , I am strongly in favor of your addition to Speed Demon, because I think Speed Demon as it stands doesn't really give you anything . But, as noted above, Deanna has said it might be a "stepping stone Perk", and I am prepared to accept that when we see where it's going...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

In our campaign nobody has a personal vehicle. Well, one character started out with his own pickup truck because it fit his background but it didn’t last long. Yet we have been in many scenarios involving vehicle combat and chases. As long as you’re in an area that has vehicles you’re likely going t...
