H P Lovecraft Videos Created by The Lone Animator & A New Free Lovecraft Download Resource As Inspiration For Your Old School Campaigns

I'm huge HP Lovecraft fan as anyone who knows me in real life can attest to, last night I got together with some friends for a beer or two. I got a chance to see some incredible work by the Lone Animator last night. Needless to say, I'm also a fan of this gentleman. He & his team's take on HP Lovecraft's The Outer Gods is very well done in my humble opinion. I love Lovecraft's Dreamlands Cycle of stories, poems, & novel.
Anyhow on with the Outer Gods!

So after downing still more brews we were ready to take on Lin Carter's poem "The King In Tatters"; set in the mythic world of Carcosa, where Hastur is the King In Yellow. Its a well done short piece of film that hits all of the major bases of Carter's work with the animator's own twist on the Lovecraftian creations.
But then again that's one of the beautiful parts of Lovecraft's work,everyone has their own interprations of the horrors & weirdness of the mythos.

The Lone Animator has a paetron page & he pretty much has a few opinions that I share especially with regards to Ray Harryhausen. He's done a page video & he's some great stuff which can have applications for rpg miniature or model making as well as film.

Alright obviously this gentleman's work can serve as an inspiration for those engaged in old school Lovecraftian role playing. I'm not associated or affiliated with the Lone Animator but I try to help out where I can. So I'm not trying to steal or violate his trade marks & copyrights on his Lovecraft work.
I would love to segway this into the fact that there is a brand new revamp & expansion of Lovecraft's work's on the Internet Archive;"
The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft contains the original stories which Lovecraft wrote as an adult. It begins in 1917 with “The Tomb” and ends in 1935 with his last original work “The Haunter of the Dark.” The book is ordered chronologically by the date the story was written. Because Lovecraft was a terrible businessman and left no heirs to his intellectual property, all of his works are already in the public domain. It does not include collaborations or revisions because some of those works may still be under the co-author’s copyright. There also left out two completely non-Weird very early stories. "
Since I'm looking to do an Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea campaign eventually I wanted to see what resources were out on the Net. The work came up last night over beer & with my friends.
