That was until the film came out by John Carpenter! A film with so many WTF moments that I was hooked especially when I saw this! The film was bleak, nasty, & stays with you! I'm thinking that the thing was done with me. Nope Dark Horse Comics came out with a series that simply expands on the original.It tells what happens to the main character & continues to explain a great many more Things! Me I've been hiding over in plane site at Outpost 31 This is perhaps the single greatest resource for Thing related info. Seriously this site is packed
So now its 2011 & One Thing leads to another!
It looks very very good in my opinion. What does this really have to do with the OSR?
- The Thing for Mutant Future
- I've personally used the life form in The Keep On The Borderlands. Makes a very interesting deversion for an evening's entertainment
- The Thing is a creation of the Eldar Things from H.P. Lovecraft's At The Mountain's of Madness
- The thing Rpg! This rpg treats the thing as an abberation of reality instead of an alien life! This game is pretty lethal
- There are a number of monsters in AD&D that can take the Alien's place with very little problem
