The Secret Nazi Plot: My Confession

For a couple of days now I've been getting emails making vague accusations about my involvement in a white supremacist underground movement.

No, I am not making this up.

Worse, I'm not the only one involved in this nefarious plot. There's a small group of folks, or a single person able to spoof emails from multiple countries, that are convinced CoC gaming is an elaborate front for pro-Nazi sympathies. Because, you know, we mention Nazis. Or edit together faux footage featuring Nazis. Or, and again I swear I'm not making this up, use Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" as a cipher reference/metaphor/code for something to do with Nazi settlement of the Antarctic.

It's either one of the looniest conspiracy theories ever or an exceedingly ornate and well-planned prank, since I most assuredly am not a Nazi rah-rah kinda guy. Coming on the heels of the "tentacle ****" incident it makes me think that the summer doldrums really do drive people mad.

Don't play coy, Mr. Banwell! While the rest of us attending the secret meetings are forced to wear off the rack lederhosen, you're there in your shiny, custom made, hand-tailored set. They'll be working their way towards you soon enough!

In all seriousness, I think it might be a prank or some kind of play-by-email game. I considered the possibility of an ARG or a viral campaign, but tossed that idea. A teeny, tiny little blog like mine just wouldn't be worth the marketing effort.

Its quite obvious your not a Nazi, its ridiculous! We all know your really in league with communist zombies who are controlled by the greys in the illuminati! Mind you thats just a cover for the Giant Space Ants hidden in the 2nd Area 51!! (the whole nazi thing is so cliche!) haha unfortunately there are some wackos out there, im suprised that the inmates at the arkham sanitarium get net time! Anyway hope they dont bother you too much and you can have some fun with em! Congrats and massive props (yes bad pun intended) on a truly great site, keep up the good work.
