I have recently been preparing a campaign for the Call of Cthulhu Role-Playing Game. We are using the D20 book (which I am proud to say that was signed by all the folks who worked on the book, including Monte Cook) Part of the preparation was to create a blog to chronicle some of my thoughts and allow the players to get a feel for the setting of the campaign. I placed the game setting in the City of DuBois, and entitled it DUBOIS: CITY OF THE DAMNED. Apparently a few folks found this through either Facebook, or Google or bot…h and started sharing the link this weekend. I got over 8,000 unique visitors to my blog page today, and several irritated people who thought the page was “real” left amusing comments on my blog which I replied to using mostly quotes from H.P. Lovecraft in some form. Even GoDuBois.Com managed to stumble across the blog page and opened a thread about it. So yesterday, I was Orsen Welles, and my War of the Worlds infected Facebook. I am amused, and I think H.P. Lovecraft and Gary Gygax both would be proud of the nonsense. Remember, folks, the STARS ARE RIGHT.
