Welcome to the H.P. Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos forum. I couldn't find one large general Lovecraft forum online so I decided to start one. This is a place to talk about everything and anything Lovecraftian, ranging from serious discussion about his works to posting pictures of Chocolate Easter Cthulhus. I especially wanted a place where the Lovecraft community could talk about the many fan projects out there that deserve more attention, and about all the great handmade Lovecraft crafts people have been making.

I've been to YSDC but it seems more oriented around gaming than the whole Mythos. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just not what I'm looking for personally. I think HPL gaming deserves a place like that, just not my cup of tea.
I agree, there needs to be an HPL-specific forum for all things Lovecraftian, Cthulhian, Mythosian, Cultistean, Crustacean and otherwise.
Actually www.templeofdagon.com ha(d) a forum that was quite good, I think, but it was overrun by spammers and the administrator wasn't dead, just sleeping. He gaev me mod rights, but not admin rights, so I can't go in and root out all the spambots / ban them and delete all their posts in a single go. Doing it manually is a pain, plus there seem to be issues with the database backend constantly throwing flags of some sort or another.
So, I may end up giving up on that one. But it really looked nice. 'Til you noticed the piles of garbage and the stink of fishy miscegenation...
Looking forward to many good conversations. Hopefully you've got plenty of good metatags so Google can find the place? Assuming ProBoards lets you do that kind of thing... Seem to recall it does.
I also frequent the sleeping Robert Englund Forum on ProBoards. Was a mod for a while, then there was some internal politicking, but at least the original administrator is now back from many years of absenteeism. So maybe things will get back up and going. It's been pretty dead for a while. NightmareOnElmStreetFilms.com's forum is pretty hoppin' though, so it's all good. But I still check in over on the Robert Englund forum now and then to see if it's out of hibernation yet.
