So, once you have recuperated from the mind-destroying experience that is contact with the Elder One (or one of its minions, for that matter), and while you are laying abed, resting and perhaps fretfully wondering "did my secret Cthanta minion actually test my recipient's sanity?", this is where you can post what your secret Cthanta sent you.

Please only make an entry when you actually receive the present!

If your Cthanta sent you more than one nightmarish hallucination convulsion gift item, just list them all in one listing unless you think it makes more sense to list them separately. Remember to include any comments you want your Secret Santa to know!

I was right, it was Cthanta's package awaiting me in the post office! I was able to withhold for opening it for a whole hour or so, before I caved in. To my defence, it didn't say I shouldn't, I'm a bit sick and deserved some cheering-up, and finally my girlfriend kept saying that I should open it (she loves looking at me when I open presents, says I look great when I do it also, she may be an Agent of Cthulhu and only wants me to lose my sanity faster... but that's beside the point).

I got Call of Cthulhu (6th Edition), the long awaited tome of knowledge I was never able to pick up before, and in addition, the hard to get Big Damn Heroes Handbook, which I've been eyeing ever since I got the basic book two years ago from Cthanta... so apparently he wanted me to fill my collection of Serenity books somewhat!

Thanks a lot, Cthanta. I hope you didn't want me to wait until Christmas. If you did, I'll make sure to read Call of Cthulhu as soon as possible in order to drain my sanity and be mentally ready to do your bidding even sooner!

This is how the packages looked like, before I ripped them open!

I got a package from Finland yesterday. Since the return address said "Lamentations of the Flame Princess" I figured I'd go ahead and open it. I also found a note inside to claim the accompanying PDF.

After Cthanta himself drove my sanity to the brink with some cryptic messages, I feared the worst. This afternoon, a large, heavy parcel arrived on my doorstep. I hadn't really been expecting a large, heavy parcel, so I hoped for the best--and feared for the worst--as I tore into the package with my trusty blade.

Wait, "trusty blade"? Lame. It is a great knife, though: Just about 2" long and perfect for opening packages. Also works well out in the field in military body armor--not kidding about that one.

So! What did I find inside the parcel?

Six books of RPG goodness! Wow!!! wow


Hey, you can't blame me for 'opening' them--they weren't wrapped! laugh


Was I such a good cultist as all that this year?

Cthanta sent me my 2 most-wished-for items: The Song of Ice and Fire Campaign Guide AND the Battlestar Galactica RPG! Amazing!

Also, perhaps seeing how few RPG items I own (just the Star Wars Saga books and all the OOTS books, which don't quite count), he sent 4 other things: After Winter's Dark, Glorantha: The Second Age, The World of Vog Mur, and Kingdoms of Kalamar Campaign Guide. Wow again!!! wow

Cthanta Claus, you really outdid yourself. Thanks a thousand times over! I never expected such a haul!

Time to get reading (and then hope for some PBF games in the not-too-distant future!).

WOAW THANKS A LOT CTHANTA.....

This was my #1 RPG in my wishlist.

Yeah I know I already opened it. The thing is I am participating in 3 different Secret Santa's and in one I participate twice so I had my wife hiding all my games but I couldn't resist on the RPG Cthanta gift.

Really a big THANKS to you Cthanta.

Now I just have to read it, prepare a campaign, gather some players at my rpg club and start it.

I must have been very evil this year, because Cthanta brought me what I've always wanted - a copy of 1st edition Kult! I've been in love with the game's setting and metaplot for years upon years, but have never been able to track a copy down. But Cthanta's dark rewards did not stop thee - oh no! He also brought me a copy of 3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars!

Like many geeks, I get a lot of boxes from Amazon this time of year. It's not really my fault that I opened my gift early.

Of course, if you're Cthanta right now you're saying "But I sprung for gift wrap".

And he did. When I opened the package, this is what I saw:



In the enclosed card, Cthanta pointed out that receiving a gift from him had little to do with being naughty or nice.

I'm pretty happy about that. I'm planning to tear the rest of the paper off on Christmas day and start reading.

Thanks Cthanta!

I got a strange package and opened it, glimpsed this game and a card fell out requesting anonymity for a Secret Santa gift (I think the company put a printout of the request in the package... ironic, ain't it?).

I closed it up without looking any further and will wait until Christmas to view the rest (but I'm very happy just knowing that this one is in there!).

Edit: Wow! The package also included:


Thank you, Cthanta! My madness is complete!

googooMy Mind has been blown!!!googoo

So I get home from work today and the wife has placed THE BOX on the coffee table.

It says it is from Cthanta... ooohhh.. Lets see what lurks within:


First up was a tease and tempt to delve further within....


I never had these two when I was a kid, so I eagerly look to explore them when I fully recover. (If my mind recovers from what's ahead....)

My mind is drawn further in to see a green cover.... why it's:

X3:Curse of Xanathon!


Awesome... never had this one before either and its in incredible shape! Tucked beneath it in the baggie is a gallery... a gallery of rogues to entrap my mind!

AD&D THE ROGUES GALLERY!


But the best (or is that worst?) for last! The part that blows my mind!

A hard back of OSRIC! surprise



And if that wasn't enough.. the final blow that knocks me out upon the ground....

THE D&D RULES CYCLOPEDIA!! surprise



Cthanta Claus said he doesn't exist... but this haul says otherwise!

THANK YOU!!

A few days ago Cthanta wrote to me:
Cthanta Claus wrote:
I got you the perfect gift! I got you GURPS Voodoo: The Shadow War (five copies, so the package is really heavy) and I placed the order outside EU.

Now let's see if your other Santa can top that!

(no evil laugh today, I have a cold)

(all the other e-mails can be seen on my profile)

and today I recieved a package.



Naturally I had to open it, so I could see if Santa or Cthanta was on top.

And lo and behold.



Not only did i recive a box of Shadowrun Dice, I also recieved:
Street Legends
(there is no image for Street Legends, but I'll upload one ASAP)

and:
Emergence


In addition I recieved a D8, a D10, a D20 and a Dhitlocations (D6 with location instead of 1-6).



Impartial as I am, I surely think Cthanta Claus came out on top.

Thank you, thank you, thank you very much.

I have been a terrible Cthanta recipient this year. I was hoping to post something clever with pictures and such, but since I received my awesome gift 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't posted it, I need to just get it out there.

Thanks Cthanta!

I received my much coveted GURPs Prisoner, the old 1988 (I believe) comic mini-series, and the best part: a Number 2 button. I love that button.

Got on base today and when I came into the secure facility I work and checked my mailbox I found a mysterious, rune-carved package from an unknown sender - the eldritch sigils glowed with a sickly verdant miasma and the package smelled of ancient tomes and long-forgotten tombs.

I was concerned but as I had passed my Sanity check, I decided to take the bold step and open the package - waiting is for chumps! devil

As I tore apart the mystical wards and paper-spawned wrappings, I was ECSTATIC (that is NOT hyperbole on my part, either) to see the Core Rulebook for the Star Wars SAGA RPG lying there in all its glorious pristine majesty.

Wow. Thank you VERY much, Cthanta. I shall dutifully continue to do my share to bring about your inevitable return to our dimension as your faithful servant. ::: bows :::

Merry Christmas, Cthanta. Merry Christmas to us all.

A padded envelope from somewhere in the South Pacific was waiting for me when I got home from work today. It contained two packages. One making a faint hissing noise and the other oozing a greenish-purple slime.



The cat will not go anywhere near them and the dog has not stopped barking. Under my Christmas tree it will sit unopened till the 25th. no matter what dark and twisted dreams may come. Thank you Cthanta Claus.

A few days after the first package arrived, a man dressed in a black overcoat arrived at my home asking for me by name. Just looking at him gave me an uneasy feeling and no matter how hard I tried, I could not make out his face under the brim of his fedora. He handed me a package wrapped in some kind of parchment paper and twine. All he said was "Don't set this down by any other books. It will taint them." With that, he turned and walked away.

Update 12/26/11
Cthanta Claus was kind enough to send me a copy of Advanced Player's Guide, two 12 sided dice and a bag of "Nate's Dead Guys" All very cool. Thank you Cthanta Claus.

A Mysterious package was awaiting me when I got home tonight. Smelling musty and with eldritch sigils emblazoned upon it's surface. I placed it under the pyramidal summoning device and went to bed.

I awoke on the floor at the foot of the pyramid, clutching a dark tome, the likes of which I had never seen before. There was discarded cardboard frames littering the floor and I had to memory of how I got there.

Thanks Santa! Looks like I need to get an image submission done for this item too!

I arrived home from work to find a package awaiting me, from He Who Shall Not Be Named goo with the return address from Comics Compulsion, my FLGS.

So, my wife opened the package to wrap it for me, only to find the following beautifully wrapped package:



So, many thanks to my Secret Cthanta! It looks awesome, and I can't wait for Christmas Day to roll around so I can open it And thanks also to Comics Compulsion, for really getting into the spirit of Secret Cthanta!

EDIT:

Finally, Christmas morning has arrived! With great anticipation, and the help of my enthusiastic canine helpers, I tore open the wrapping to find:



Brilliant! Such a gorgeous book, and a real delight to find today!

Thanks Secret Cthanta, for the great gift, and giving me something to read these holidays Hope you have an excellent Christmas too!

It's been a morning of a horrifying chain reaction... each one worse than the last...

I'm taking a vacation day after a Hell-ish few weeks at work, and the only item on the agenda for the day: sleep. snore Cthanta had other plans for me though.

The "garbage man" arrived at 4:45AM. It's only upon reflection that I realize it might have been no "man" at all.

That woke up my 18 pound cat who lives for one thing... his morning food. If you look up the word "caterwauling" in the dictionary, you can actually HEAR this cat through your eyeballs. There would be no sleep until the beast was fed.

Since I was half-awake... Well, let's check e-mail? What could that hurt?

There it was... A not-so-secret minion of Cthanta warning me of an impending "Savage" package. What could it be? Now I'm wide awake in terror... Waiting... Waiting... Waiting...

_______

Holy cow! It wasn't anything like Savagery of the Spider Men at all! Today I received Savage Worlds Deluxe and Action & Adventure Decks!



I opened them... because I'll be using them Wednesday night!

A million thanks to not-so-secret minion

My wish list is a complete mish-mash of items, basically letting my Cthanta decide what I'm going to be playing next.

Despite a bit of a delay when Byakhee made off with the gift, it looks like this time it's Gamma World. Awesome! Can't wait to give it a spin.

Thanks Cthanta.

My Cthanta Claus did a great job of taunting - lots of e-mails, threats, questions, etc. One odd thing was, Cthanta asked about why I had a Wisconsin micro-badge . . . I'm guessing the minion in charge of offering me my just desserts is based in Milwaukee, where I grew up. I could probaby do more investigating, but there are some things man was not meant to know (and I like to leave an air of mystery about secret santa things).

Anyway, Chthanta definitely came through - not only did he send me the main item here (Bookhounds of London, a funky setting/campaign frame for Trail of Cthulu by Ken Hite, he also sent me a copy of this fun indie game:


InSpectres

Which is great fun (I had a chance to try it at BGG.con a couple of years ago).

Finally, the topper - a big box arrived from Sprecher brewing, a not-so-small brewer in Milwaukee. I'd mentioned that I liked their root beer and cream soda in addition to a couple of beers - good thing, apparently, as the rules for shipping alcohol into Texas are more arcane than even Chthanta Claus can decipher. So, I got a box full of yummy bottles of Root Beer and Cream Soda from:

http://www.sprecherbrewery.com/store/details.php?prodId=41&c...

So - Cthanta, thanks for the games, and thanks even more for the much appreciated taste of home!

After many days of fitful dreams, the terrible imagery that had so haunted me has now coalesced into a coherent, dangerous picture:



Tomorrow, I will make the journey. But I dare not attempt to decipher the contents until the morning of the 25th. Tonight, at last, I sleep, touched by my master and contented.

*** UPDATE: MADNESS STRIKES ***

Late last night, the madness finally took me. The effects were dire, as you can surely see...



I may never recover from this onslaught; I'm not sure I want to.

OK, now seriously for a second. I stopped in to my FLGS because Cthanta's clue led to a package there waiting for me, and I was pretty psyched when I could tell through the wrapper that there were multiple volumes tucked into one little prezzie.

But I was literally stunned (like fer real, not Cthulhu-style or in character or anything like that...) that there were FOUR awesome small-press goodies in the package.



This truly is -- no-question -- a touching and humbling display of generosity, and one for which I am supremely grateful. Thank you so much, Cthanta Claus, for an even more awesome present than I ever could have imagined.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to everybody, everyplace!

Cthanta! Thank you very much for your gift!

I arrived home to this:



So, I tore into it, since it's the first day of Hanukkah. I'm not Jewish, but I have a friend who claims I am because I'm an accountant, so it counts.



INCEPTION GIFTING! Cthanta, you are truly trying to warp my mind!



Thank you kind evil one! I will be able to fight the Xenos with greater fervor thanks to you.

Cthanta stayed off the radar for me this year - driving me nearly insane with quiet. But yesterday a large package arrived - priority mail no less. I saw the return address...Cthanta, and a little part of me died inside, knowing the end of days was near. I tore it open in my fear, only to discover my worst fears realized, a book about the Mythos and a game I've been meaning to read!

But there was more. Much more:



U3: The Final Enemy, an early AD&D module I had sought but missed out on all year,

AND



Gamma World Roleplaying Game, including three extra unopened booster packs of the cards!!!

That's three (count 'em: three!) "1" products from my wishlist. A HUGE thanks to my anonymous but Manhattan-based Cthanta! You rock!

And now I've got some more reading to do...
