While excavating in the Dragon's Court, workers uncovered a bricked up sealed chamber. This chamber contained the human remains of three individuals, which appear to have been buried alive in the cell. Archeologists have uncovered some odd items... including a small number of copies of the banned blasphemous book...****************.

Most copies have been burnt... and with good reason. Reading the second act will cost the reader his or her sanity.

The books are being discussed by scientists and the government to their disposition. The current recommendation is that they all be destroyed quickly.

Yes, its real. It in fact will become your entire reality, if you fall into its sinsiter stanzas and poisonous prose.

Visions some were plagued with after perusing the second act and glancing at the illustrations...

If I may...

The above has been in the back-burner of Dr.Spektor for quite some time... But due to the load of work his alter-ego (Bruce) had going on in his other life, this marvelous project had to wait.

I'm really glad that now the good doctor has found the time to refine this project and to make it coming alive.

And since I also know part of the effect and story because Bruce shared it with me in the past, I know I'll will want to get one. And most, if not all of you, are going to want to get one too.

Guys, remember... you heard it here first... :)

This looks stunning...

I just watched an old night gallery episode where the proffesor in a university class read to his students from this book...

Can't wait Dr...

Ok, after a gazillion PMs of WTF, the effect boils down to:

Fiction becomes reality, reality becomes fiction.

Really.

I designed it to simulate total descent into psychosis.

More to come.

I am a big HP Lovecraft fan, so you have my attention.
Please give us an ETA on this product. I am stressing the "estimated" here, you can give broad numbers like end of the year, a year from now, next week.

No preorders - I do not support that business practice.

The Carcosa Collection artifacts will be available only when they are available...

In fact, the business model will be quite different than the usual you would expect.

In fact, some artifacts will not be sold - but obtained in very strange ways.

More information to follow...

any info on size, number of pages or content?

Message: Posted by: Dr Spektor (Jul 26, 2010 11:38AM)
The beauty of these books is - you can make the page count to whatever you want... in fact, you can make the pages be whatever you want... in fact, you can rip and destroy and burn them with ease and feel happy it is OK...

As for the Arcana Carcosa... some of the images you saw on the previous page make up the pack... there are 22 Major Trumps, 1 DB, and 2 Sitter cards, and 3 odd sinsiter cards that can be used to creep the hell out of people... the reactions to the art is really insane... I'm just pricing out the best options for the initial run.

I'll start a new thread for the AC soon.

Hmmm... if you like that, I should show you Hob, one of the mascots of the Carcosa Collection Gallery. He'll (it) will be in the permanent collection... but I'll ask if he doesn't mind me sharing a glamour shot.

As for your tome - PM me any special nuances you might like. For those wondering why Paolo gets one automatically... in case you didn't know it, he gave the proceeds of the FLYTRAP to charity, as helped numerous people in their quest to better themselves in the mystery arts - and much more. More than many realize.

HINT -> these elements listed above are possible ways to obtain things from the Carcosa Collection.

Santa Cthulhu did whisper something about the Arkham Antiquities video - a really cool video for which he says we should consider sending something hideous to you... so who knows what might fall down your chimney (or rather, burrow up from the basement)...
