Why you should look into Eldritch

"Lovecraftian" is the main word I've heard used to describe Eldritch, but I've never read an HP Lovecraft book in my life. That imagery doesn't help me to visualize the game so I wanted to help others who may be in my situation. I was able ...

From about then on I have harbored a healthy affection for gaming (it's totally unhealthy).

I major in film studies but that may switch to some form of writing.
