    [Cthulhu] Curse of the Yellow Sign Act 3: Archimedes 7

    This isn't Dark Fantasy. This is horror.

    You may want to warn your players ahead of time.

    I always make sure my players know this when I run Call of Cthulhu. Your players should have this unterstanding before you begin. This is not the Cthulhu Mythos You've just taken a single step out of your warm, cozy bubble into the vast, uncaring, inhuman universe. This isn't a bug hunt. This is cosmic horror. You are the tiny, insignificant mistake of chemistry that happened to bubble up between two great ages. And as soon as the stars are right, your time is over.

    This isn't fighting the good fight. This is a deep, long look into the endless void.

    This is Call of Cthulhu.

    They didn't win. They survived.
    Das ist das dritte Abenteuer der Curse of the Yellow Sign Trilogie von John Wick.

    Far beyond where the human eye can see, in the darkness of space, a small vessel reaches out into the void and encounters the true nature of the universe.

    This is Archimedes 7. The Last Act. The final plunge into madness. As Man steps beyond his boundaries, he flies into the face of the unknown. The vast, cold uncaring void. At last, he is alone.

    When Lovecraft was writing “cosmic horror,” the concept of a big, unsympathetic universe was scary. These days, we’ve grown up with Carl Sagan telling us about the billions of stars in the sky, the distance from our planet to the sun, the light years we need to travel to reach the closest solar system... these things are part of our psyche. Part of our unspoken understanding.

    Or is it?

    Many of today’s religions try to keep their followers away from knowledge of the universe.Carl Sagan’s idea of “the little blue dot” frightens them beyond sanity. Every day, we hear about the percentage of a supposedly educated public’s opinion of the theory of evolution, the age of the Earth and the literal interpretation of their Bronze Age book.

    If the Earth is not the center of the universe... that leads us to wonder about God’s intent in making it. If mankind isn’t special and select above the other animals... that leads us to wonder about God’s intent in making us.

    Science leads to questions. Questions lead to doubt. Doubt leads to apostasy.

    Perhaps Lovecraft’s idea of a vast, unkind and merciless universe isn’t so out-of-date after all?

    ***

    This last Act focuses on the human myth of identity. When you consider the billions of microscopic creatures that exist on your flesh right now—right now—that are necessary to your survival, the billions of microscopic creatures that exist inside you right now—right now—that are necessary to your survival, you have to wonder... are they a part of me?

    As your players navigate through this final Act, they will face this last human myth head on. Alone in the middle of the universe, they will be naked and helpless.

    Just who are you? Why are you? And what makes you unique?

    The answers we find together may not be what you hope.

    Wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe hängen die drei Teile nur sehr locker zusammen?

    Wenn ja bin ich dabei.

    Viele Grüße
