Thought I'd share an odd track that this game led me down. A few years ago, someone on this site recommended various "Eldritch Horror" music tracks, and they pointed to a Pandora playlist by that name. So I started listening while playing. It turned out that, in keeping with the Cthulhu theme, many of the songs came from the 1920s and 30s. Gradually, I became more and more enamored of the period music.

One singer in particular became my favorite: Annette Hanshaw. I got to liking her music so much that I started researching her history and found a 1972 radio interview with her. I found where she's buried. I started buying all her albums.

Eventually, I'm going to put together a custom scenario in which one of the EH mysteries involves tracking down Annette Hanshaw and enlisting her help in combatting the Ancient One.

I'm also thinking of building a time machine and traveling back to get her autograph.

Someone please help...

Is that help you to build a time machine or asking if anyone has her autograph for you?

When you rest, roll 1 die. On a result of 5 or 6, discard the Madness condition.

Just kidding!

I love that playlist too. This is a totally wicked idea!

If you've got the beer I've got a spare transmogrifier.

Ha! You guys make me laugh.

And yes, I'm listening to Annette. My wife is growing suspicious.

You could also contact the Great Race and see if they will transfer your mind into a body back in the 20's.

No! I must receive it directly from her hand! And it has to be addressed to me!

How strange. The same thing has happened to me. Except in my case it's Josephine Baker.

As you were. whistle

BRB, I'm writing a new incarnation of Hastur that makes people obsessed with musicians from a hundred years ago and time-travel.

It's not obsession! It's true love.

I'm pretty sure Yog-Sothoth has the power to send you back in time. Or just find an otherworldly portal that takes you back to the past
