I wish I had $150+ as this item has just become available on eBay:
This particular Necronomicon is “hand-bound in two colors of real hand-stitched leather and finished with high quality archival red felt.The sigil of The Necronomicon and the Elder Sign have been emblazoned on the front and back cover respectively. Each and every one of it’s 148 pages has been filled with original artwork, custom engravings, occult signs and circles, eldritch symbols and authentic occult texts in Latin. A few passages are in Old English as would be authentic to the time period of the piece.” Awesome.
Make a SAN check.
It was made for an off-Broadway production of H.P.Lovecraft’s The Hound, which looked kinda sweet and comes with all sorts of documentation (certificates of authentication, photos of it being used in the production, etc.). If you have more money than I do (and maybe feel like giving me a present) then head over to the item here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Hand-Made-Leather-Bound-Lovecraft-Necronomicon-/200592250129?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb43ad511

A Yithian, as drawn by an 8yr old.
Here’s something cool that I found (again, pretty damn late) over at Comics Alliance, a Halloween art project run for a children’s choir in which the main focus was the stories of a one Mr. H. P. Lovecraft. An amazing selection of Yithians, Shoggoths, Elder Things and, of course, great Cthulhu himself. Click the link to see more of the same child-produced sanity destroying artwork!
Cosmic horror for kiddies, anyone?

It’s the Friday after a very long couple of weeks, I’ve got the weekend off and a tournament on Sunday. The sun was actually (vaguely) out and I’m (still) not stone broke. So I went to the pub, and for the second time this year there was no new post yesterday.
How swift the fall… more proper stuff later! Until then have some Lovecraftian Lolcats-style pictures.
I want a cephalapod!

Just makes me think of Play Your Cards Right... "Higher than a 7? Oh no, I'm sorry it's Yog-Sothoth." Gribble.
In case it wasn’t glaringly obvious by now, I really like gaming and I really like the Cthulhu mythos. When the two combine, it’s one of my favourite things. I’m lucky enough to have a girlfriend who understands my geeky ways, and indeed embraces them herself. She picked up this gem from our favourite store Inner Sanctum Collectibles (Plug! Where’s my affiliate money, Graham?) on a whim the other day, as it was post-pay day, we were looking for something fun to add to our collection, and the Munchkin Cthulhu bits we considered either weren’t available yet or didn’t appeal that day. Laura spotted this one, The Stars Are Right from Steve Jackson Games, makers of many amazing games (including the aforementioned Munchkin, GURPS, and my two favourite widely available dice games, Zombie Dice and of course Cthulhu Dice).

Laura tried to name her final major degree project this. Truth.
I’ve been a bit busy today, but I’m working on some proper posts for the next few days on various topics including games design, sweet deck tech, a new book review or two (finally) and, of course, more Cthulhu-related insanity! Thanks for reading.
