Welcome to the Electronomicon, Version 2. Is it safe to look over my shoulder now? After several more nightsÃ¢â¬â¢ work on this contribution to the Alternity game, I know a bit of how Abdul al-Hazred, the alleged author of the Necronomicon, mustÃ¢â¬â¢ve felt. This is the ELECTRONOMICON; an alien artifact designed and used in the Star*Drive setting based campaign found on the Internet at EscapeVelocity2503 (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/escapevelocity2503). This device is based on the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and the mythology of the Necronomicon. It is intended to be used as a constant foil and irritation to the players in oneÃ¢â¬â¢s Alternity game; but it does not necessarily need to be used in a Star*Drive setting. This can just as easily be used in a Dark•Matter game, or any other setting that the GM chooses.

That's the Revision... the original is still available, and I'll have to submit that for comparison. I'm glad to see folks like it; though I cannot take 100% of the credit: Mig_nova (aka Mike Meechan) & I worked together on this collaborative effort to give the Alternity community the DREAD TOME (hence the little title I use here on the A.net boards).

Another note: Chris Campbell did two of the drawings: the pencil drawing of the Mi-Go & the featured picture of the Haunters.

I love Lovecraft and Alternity. This Electronomicon is a modern focus for both. And it it is potent, something to put at the end of longer campaigns. (Bad spelling?) Iรยดll use this.

Metaphant: In the EV2503, storyline, the Electronomicon was discovered quite accidentally at the very beginning. It was all the trouble that followed that made a lot of the plot. Hell, man, use it as you see fit.
