I've been delving fairly heavily into Carcosa during my previous bed bound two days. It was probably the prefect way to first really read Carcosa, as it made the sick stuff seem even sicker and otherworldly. I haven't looked that closely at the rituals, as I suspect they won't come much into use except as tools for NPCs, plot hooks and the like, but I did start to poke around the Hex Crawl, and there is much to like. I'll return to Carcosa later.
In the meantime, I've been spending more time reading the Isle of the Unknown, which is a more standard fantasy style Hex Crawl. Much to like here. I could run a campaign using this fairly easily with what I've reads far. (Carcosa would be much harder for ME to run without some heavy tweaking - but that's me.
I've also spent some time with the Weird Adventures from Trey Causey. This is actually fun to read! I'm not saying that reading RPG material isn't enjoyable, but Trey works well with the Pulpy source material. He had fun putting this together and it show. More when I've gotten thru more.
Off the next two days (thanks Doc!) so expect me to get some more non-feverish reading done. I still don't know which came first: me reading Carcosa or me getting sick ;)
Crap, I need to get back to building my LotFP Bard class too!
