008: The Architect of Dread

This week on Pathfinder, part three of our series of human's manifestation of fear. This week we introduce you to the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft his creation Cthulhu and why Lovecraft's work may have more of an influence on stories than you could have ever imagined.

This is part three of Monster Month on Pathfinder. H.P. Lovecraft has inspired creators, games and artists for decades, so this week we're looking into the man who architected the monsters that go beyond our imagination. We delve into why his way of storytelling was so effective for a modern age and how he may have set us up for the monsters of the future.

In part four of our monster series, we face those monsters of the future head on. We'll see you next week.
