Van Leavenworth, in his response to Hite, delves more deeply into Cthulhu’s literariness, in particular the “large adventure book ‘footprint’ ” of the series. He contends that the Lovecraft mythos provides a framework for the generation of narratives that - unlike many RPG stories - hold up beyond the game-play session.
