So, I saw new game - https://store.epicgames.com/pl/p/worshippers-of-cthulhu-0fd3a2?fbclid=IwAR3yt_mwO1ju5HEInJyte-ZWIkPiB7NQ81BxplTniFVINZfXhd0TkXRpSCU_aem_AWnENz3wLNsMYhhDXZrM9Y3xy50ON-bUyCzadulNGpPG4J9ks6ZbjrCduTqtdw7N4K_37i2M9xZqB_Jv72klpg85 . It looks very interesting. I am not sure if there were any strategy game based on Lovecraft's works? Yes, there were many mods, but this is something different.

(Here You can listen to audio version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCdlph835qc )

Today I’m going to tell you about a necromancer… Not just any necromancer, but the Necromancer… The one who was the first to make a pact with Death, who was the first to learn its dark secrets, who coined the creed of the ancient brotherhood of graveyard sorcerers….

But let’s start at the beginning. Centuries ago… No, more than centuries, thousands of years ago. It’s hard to say how long ago, because there are no chronicles so old as to date back to that time… In some country in the East; the name of that land, the name of the people who inhabited it, the language that people spoke, the names of the cities they inhabited. All this is lost in the darkness of oblivion….So, as I say, thousands of years ago, in some country in the East, there lived a man. An ordinary craftsman. He made pots out of clay. He couldn’t be called rich, but he certainly wasn’t poor. Well, he earned enough to provide a decent living for himself, his wife and two sons. And he could even afford small pleasures from time to time, such as a jug of wine for dinner or a small trinket for his beloved….

But, although his wife was beautiful and diligent, and his sons were healthy and diligent too, this man was deeply unhappy. What was the reason for this?… His profession.

First of all, when a man sits at the potter’s wheel performing monotonous and familiar motions by heart, he often does so in passing, while his mind is sunk in contemplation. Secondly, the potter’s life and work provided him with plenty of material for musings that were not very cheerful.

But before I go any further, you should know something : the people among whom the man lived have always been afraid of wraiths( the cursed corpses that walk the earth to harass the living). Ironically, the people feared the undead at a time when there was still no necromancer who could summon them from beyond the grave…. Therefore, they did not bury the corpse as we do today. Each body went to a pyre made of dry wood, which the priests set on fire. The pyre burned until all that was left of the deceased was ash, at which time the assembled family praised the merits of the deceased and raised a lament. The conflagration ritual was meant to ensure that the dead would not take revenge on the living, and the annihilation of the body was meant to prevent them from doing so, should the rite itself not be enough. When the fire was extinguished, the priests would collect the ashes and pour them into a clay urn, which was then buried in the ground.

We should remember that the future Necromancer was engaged in the processing of clay. But, as you already know, his creations were not only used to store wine, beer, water or milk… They were also a resting place for the dead members of his community. So, the Necromancer was not only a simple potter, but also a bit of a mortician. Every time someone died, the family of the unfortunate person would come to the potter’s workshop to order a new vessel in which the ashes would be placed. Therefore, the craftsman was aware of every death occurring in the area.

I am reading "The Ballad of songbirds and snakes". It is not great, but OK. Hunger Games is probably only one YA dystopia I appreciate.

"Dominion of Darkness” is a strategy text-based game in which the player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots. Note – one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new. Stable version of the game is avalaible for free here: https://adeptus7.itch.io/dominion

And here are some reviews:

As I mentioned, I'm still developing the game and adding new elements... And this means the risk of new bugs. The game contains so many options that I am not able to test everything on an ongoing basis (and errors often appear in very specific situations, such as "the game crashes if at this exact moment the Influence among the orcs is exactly 3 and the Armaments is exactly 4 "), hence I am looking for help. Participating in the tests is not difficult or demanding - all the tester needs to do is play at least once and then send me his/her opinion and information about any errors by e-mail. If you are interested (I know there probably won't be anyone, but I am trying), please send me a private message or mail me on [email protected] .

Regards.

IMPORTANT!
