This is not a ‘quirk of art,’ MSNBC.


OK?  OK? Something very much like this showed up in Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity*.  Which is a roleplaying supplement for the game Call of Cthulhu.  Which is a game that explores mind-destroying cosmic horror, and the best way to futilely delay its inevitable final victory over our weak human concepts of ‘logic’ and ‘sanity.’  They put that in there to freak out the people playing the game, because it takes a lot to freak out your average Call of Cthulhu player, these days.


No, I don’t know why this freaked me out, either.  Maybe because I wasn’t expecting it.

    Why did it freak you out? Because it’s disgusting, that’s why.

    Nail clippings and baby-teeth? Eww. That’s one step up from poop. A very small, baby-like step.

    Eh, it’s not that bad. Reminds me of something that happened the other week. I bought a ton of books at an auction, mostly 19th century stuff. I was leafing through a book from the 1860’s and there was a lock of hair pressed between the pages. I called my wife over and said “Look, honey, 150 year old hair” and she FREAKED OUT. Some people are bothered by stuff, I guess…

  • Wombat-socho says:

    Wait, I’m confused. I thought Delta Green was a standalone RPG, and now you say it’s just a supplement to CoC?

    • Moe_Lane says:

      It’s a sourcebook, W-s. I think that the confusion here might be from the assumption that nobody gets as far as buying the DG books without also having the CoC ruleset. 🙂
