Papercraft Elder Thing and Investigators

Artist Wayne Peters created this wonderful papercraft Elder Thing and investigators set for "Call of Cthulhu".

He's also dreamed up some other amazing artwork that you can see at his website, Crow's Nest. Including one of the best depictions of the venerable Type-S scoutship from the Traveller RPG that I've ever seen. One of these days I'll have to dig out some of the sci-fi props from the good ship Anton Regiv.

Update: Bleh. Mr. Peters left a very nice comment apologizing for slagging ATMOM. Unfortunately, I clumsily deleted it instead of posting it because I'M AN IDIOT and clicked the wrong button.

Not that it matters too much, since we're not mind-numbed cultists around here. Well, not about things like that. If you start badmouthin' "The Cats of Ulthar", on the other hand, we's gonna have words.

Oh, do dig out your sci-fi props sometime. I'm running a Traveller-ish game now and it would be fun to see them!

@ Nick Storm

We must embrace the heretic to make him change his ways. Heh.

I forgave him for that after discovering he'd done those Type-S renders.

@ Christopher

I'll see if I can find them. I know I have a tube of Zuchai crystals and a ship key stuck in a closet.

Nobody is ever likely to read this but I've totally changed my tune about ATMOM, these days. After listening to Chris and Chad's terrific discussion about it on the HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast and reading Ian Culbard's excellent graphic novel version of the story, I'm finding that I'm appreciating it more and more - indeed, it's quickly becoming one of my favourites.
