shawnhartnell: Who would win, Sherlock Holmes or Cthulhu? Feb 14, 2014 5:49:24 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: Catherine video-game worth playing. It's more than a strange Japanese game that somehow made the jump. Feb 18, 2014 13:41:14 GMT -6
Kyriotes: The company that makes Sherlock Holmes games (Frogwares) is working on a "Call of Cthulhu" video game. Is that why the question of Sherlock vs Cthulhu was asked? Mar 16, 2014 18:33:24 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: No. Sherlock is the ultimate analytic mind. Cthulhu is the ultimate mind breaker. Yet, while Cthulhu represents the incomprehensible cosmos, when Sherlock was told that the Earth revolves around the Mar 18, 2014 9:52:42 GMT -6 *
shawnhartnell: Sun, he immediately resolved to forget it because it wasn't relevant to him. Mar 18, 2014 9:53:17 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: So it seems to me that Sherlock could face Cthulhu, understand that he doesn't understand, and simply not care. This, of course, wouldn't stop Cthulhu from squashing him like a bug. Mar 18, 2014 9:57:33 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: Yet.... so long as Cthulhu remains in R'lyeh, he can only send Sherlock things he can easily handle. So it's kind of a stalemate. Mar 18, 2014 10:01:18 GMT -6
Kyriotes: Cthulhu might send some of his special absinthe to Sherlock via cultist. Mar 18, 2014 13:38:26 GMT -6
Kyriotes: What are some things we could do to make this forum more active? Mar 30, 2014 23:19:28 GMT -6
Sanguis: I feel we need to breathe new life into it, get the energy flowing. Apr 2, 2014 6:21:00 GMT -6
Kyriotes: Yup. I wonder if adding each other on something like skype would be good. This shout box serves a pretty good purpose, as do the forums, but there are some features that skype has that these don't. Apr 2, 2014 13:39:02 GMT -6
Sanguis: I think it's a good idea for people who want to keep closer touch or share a more one on one conversation, though I'm not sure if I see that helping the forum become more active. Hmm... Apr 3, 2014 2:52:53 GMT -6
Sanguis: Don't get me wrong though, I do think it's a good idea. Apr 5, 2014 14:16:40 GMT -6
Kyriotes: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Apr 6, 2014 17:15:04 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: I think sanguis has the right idea. After all, who joins in a conversation they're not interested in? Start conversations on topics YOU find interesting Lovecfraft related or not and don't give a damn what people think about it. A good topic is a good Apr 7, 2014 22:38:21 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: topic is a good topic. Also, if you want to increase activity that by default makes you responsible for setting an example for people to follow, like the little stone that starts a pearl, the pearl takes the overall shape of the initial stone. Apr 7, 2014 22:42:14 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: Be yourself, keep it fun, be interested in learning something new. And so on an so forth... Apr 7, 2014 22:45:18 GMT -6
shawnhartnell: You guys are doing a good job simply talking between yourselves. As I have joined in. :-) Apr 7, 2014 22:47:11 GMT -6
Sanguis: :) Apr 13, 2014 2:54:19 GMT -6
Kyriotes: I'm a little intimidated as many topics are generous with ten dollar words. Apr 17, 2014 15:49:59 GMT -6
