Inspiration: Author - H. P. Lovecraft

Group Description

Games based on the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. These tend to concern themselves mostly with the stories forming the basis for what has become known as the "Cthulhu mythos." (Lovecraft himself never used the term.)

Generally made on license from Chaosium, though the pervasive influence of Lovecraft on modern horror writers means there's significant leeway in what to call "inspired by Lovecraft" or not.
