THe Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.122: The Mountains of Dream
The Mountains of Dreams is the third of Geoffrey McKinney’s epic Carcosa supplements. Inspired by Lovecraft’s The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, this section of McKinney’s massive hexcrawl campaign maps a section of Carcosa containing such fantastical Lovecraftian locales as Thalarion, Xura, Parg, Kadath, and (my personal favourite) the dreaded Plateau of Leng; but as with its source material, whilst retaining a quality of outre weirdness, this corner of Carcosa possesses a more oneiric, mystical quality as opposed to the overtly horrific feel of the other modules. In any case, a welcome addition to the Carcosa series.
