Now this is one CCG i'm gonna have to get

Call of Cthulhu CCG

/me drools

Question is, does it have picture of the eldar gods? Because, you know, if you see them you go insane. It'd be a low selling CCG if everyone that bought a booster went into the asylum afterwards.

Promethius, I command you to send your spies into this 'FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES' and find out the dirt!

[EDIT] Since there is a website at http://www.cthulhuccg.com/ for the CCG, I guess your spies can just go there and read the demo rules.

If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

actually, if the insanity it cause was compulsive purchasing, it'd be a good marketing method. I mean, they'd be standing right there. Looking at CoC cards, and here they need to buy more. There'd be one in every pack

I have no spies.  :(  Not even ninjas.

Fell might, though.

Should be interesting to see how this one goes. I kinda enjoyed the old Mythos game, insanity not withstanding.

But shadowfist sounds so much like dodgy hentai pr0n.

Yes, quality Hentai pr0n. It's the sort that's well drawn and doesn't have tentacles.

Isn't it rather redundant to say 'hentai pron' when hentai means pron?

bzzz, wrong!  It's abnormality not pervert.  The reason they use it for perverted comes from the word hentaiseiyoku, which means abnormal sexuality.  And abnormal is like being perverted in some way (not sick, but twisted)  So basicaly in the form that you've been useing it is slang for perverted.

Just haveing too much fun with this.  The kanji are
1)unusual; change; strange
2) body; form

so now you know.  And knowing is half the battle.

Well, in English, Pervert used as a verb means to change something, usually for the worse, with the sexual thing being a connotation onto it.

So it's kinda close.
