The Soundtrack of Cthulhu

(Another belated post on what I've been up to lately.)

Two Sundays ago, rwrylsin and I visited our friends G & T, and their friend Y, for an afternoon of Arkham Horror.
Amazingly, Team Human managed to pull off a win against the eldritch horrors of Azathoth, skirting along the edge of sanity and doom to save Arkham (for now).

In the background, we played some music that turned out to be well-suited to the game, three albums by Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows (ok, even the band name suits the game!) - "Es Reiten Die Toten So Schnell", "Todeswunsch", and "The Inexperienced Spiral Traveller". They hit just the right mood of weirdness and other-worldliness for roaming around and dealing with eldritch horrors and squamous monstrosities.

G & T are servants to a couple of cats, and apparently I was the Lap Of The Day - I had one cat on my lap for most of the game, and managed to fit both of them on my lap while we were sitting around before dinner.

All in all, a nice way to spend a Sunday.
