Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Libris Monstrum #35: Kuo-toa Revisited

Last time we visited the kuo-toa we talked about their changing existence throughout the history of D&D and their relationship to cosmic horror literature. Because they are D&D IP, other games must find or create different creatures to act in their stead. Today we will look at some examples of that. Skum This is an interesting one. Skum started off in Dungeons & Dragons as a slave race. Like so many of the horrific, aberrant races of horror the aboleth…

Review: Whispers From The Void

Review: Whispers From The Void

While I have a copy of Claws of Madness, I have not yet had a chance to go through it. Instead of going through both, I decided to…
