The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.142: Jungles of K’naanothoa
We return for a final visit to Geoffrey McKinney’s Carcosa, with a brief sojourn in the Jungles of K’naanothoa. Needless to say, McKinney delivers in spades with the high Lovecraftian weirdness, intersecting this creatively with classic Old School AD&D: the cover of the supplement depicts the emergence of Juiblex (a demon lord from the Monster Manual) from an eldritch gate leading the demonc planar abyss as described in the Dungeon Master’s Guide. In any case, the four new Carcosa supplements, combined with the original Lamentations of the Flame Princess edition, now provide a massive Lovecraftian sandbox hexcrawl which should keep you players occupied for some time.
