No, I can't see any lawyering that allows Cthulhu hi'self to be seduced.
I'd need to know the system to lawyer, but where there's a will, there's a way. I've known some excellent rules lawyers in my time. They do impressive work.

I don't know, not familiar with Call of Cthulhu's mechanics, but I'd maybe go along with it. I'm the kind of GM who loves it when players come up with completely insane solutions. Seducing Cthulhu would be very unlikely to work, but I'd allow a very slight chance.
Luckily Call of Cthulhu has a system amenable to "very slight chances" since it's based on a 1d100, so there can be a literal 1% chance for something to succeed. I forget whether it has "critical" results on a 1 or not.

Exactly how would someone justify being able to know the mind and psychology of a Great Old One enough, a being that can't even concieve of such emotions on any level, biochemical or purely psychological in the first place and has no need to do so, to be able to manipulate him/her/it sexually? This is pure Fishmalk bullshit and I wouldn't allow the roll, period. Not sorry.

Everybody loves boobs.

The system I use is CoC 6th ed. There is no Seduction or Sex Appeal skill there. The closest equivalent is Persuade.

No, beings older than and past the concepts of biology and usually physics themselves don't give a damn about human mamaries.
How do you know that beings older than and past the concepts of biology and usually physics themselves didn't interfere with evolutionary development to induce the creation of perfect mammaries?

Azathoth? More like AzaTHOT!

More than likely something Nyarlathotep conceived for some yuks. He is the Crawling Chaos, after all.

Ah, but what is seduction if not persuasion (to bang)?

You're not persuading a Great Old One, let alone appealing to whatever passes for it's sexual urges.
I'm afraid the Great Old One has no say in the matter on what is sexually appealing to it, for I am GM, and my power to turn things silly is infinite, and by virtue of rule 0 I decree all Cthulhy Mythos beings great or small desire poon. Except Azathoth. I mean, he wants poon, but can't get it. Cuz he's a sleezy weeb. Makes Nyarlathotep go to Akihabara every week to buy a new stash of hentai doujins. Mostly tentacle porn.

Azathoth is a blind idiot though, how could he enjoy it even, given his Intelligence of 0, he somehow understood what Nyarlyathotep brought him? The Black Pharaoh could have brought him a stack of old back issues of Home and Garden for all the Seething Nuclear Chaos knew...

Hi everyone. I just signed up for escapist plus and the forums because I'm going a bit crazy stuck at home. I figured this would be as good a place as any to start posting. My gaming group have postponed our 5e run through Saltmarsh, but we're still playing a homebrew sci-fi campaign with D&D 5e rules via roll20, and we've just added a Vampire game set in LA in 1945. I'm hoping the White Wolf games are a better fit for online play since we've been finding 5e pretty janky to transition and are at risk of losing some players.

Anyone remember hero quest? It was a fun game to play as a child and given the lockdown now would be a good time to play a boardgame. problem is trying to get hold of a copy as they stopped making it ages ago.

I was a teenager when I first played, and by then I was already well and truly familiar with Dungeons and Dragons and more complex RPG's, so maybe I didn't get as much out of it as some would. Nonetheless, I heartily recommend it if one can find a copy somewhere. It's good casual fun and has Game Workshop's usual level of presentation and production value.

I remember playing that around the same time as the D & D "basic" set was launched (the one in the long black box with the red dragon on the front). Hero Quest was a lot of fun. I remember really enjoying the miniatures. I wonder how much an intact box would go for today?
