Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.331; Lovecraftesque
More futile gaming purchases in today's offering as we digitally thumb through Lovecraftesque - a new GM-less storytelling rpg of Lovecraftian horror. It being GM-less, I'm wondering if it can be repurposed as some sort solitaire Lovecraftian rpg (me being far too curmudgeonly to engage with other gamers). Probably not. Besides, it also announces itself as a game without Deep Ones, Mi-Go, or any of the standard Mythos tropes - which presumably means the authors of the game have some warped expectation that gamers are going to actually make use of their imaginations. Which, frankly, is just crazy talk.
