The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.114: The Good Friends of Jackson Elias
Whilst it has received occasional mention on this blog before, The Good Friends of Jackson Elias has not, until now, featured as a Lovecraftian Thing a Day. The Good Friends derives its name from the set-up of Chaosium’s classic Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign for the Call of Cthulhu rpg; indeed, the central focus of hosts Paul Fricker, Matt Sanderson, and Scott Dorwood - all who have written for games such as Call of Cthulhu and Trail of Cthulhu - is upon roleplayng in the multifarious worlds of Lovecaftian horror. Even so, there is much of value here for the horror and Lovecraftian generalist, with engrossing and insightful discussions themed around Lovecaftian and Lovecraft-adjacent film and literature - in short, The Good Friends of Jackson Elias is a highly recommended earful of Lovecraftian goodness.
