Seeing Through Delusions
Back in episode 11 we discussed madness in Lovecraftian games and how, if at all, it relates to the real world. Paul made mention of the new rules in Call of Cthulhu 7th edition that deal with delusions and attempts by investigators to see through them. I was reminded of this today when I stumbled across a comment on Reddit from someone with schizophrenia, who talks about how he tries to determine whether he’s hallucinating.
This is fascinating stuff, and Paul was comforted to learn that he wasn’t too far off base.
