Well since it is now a favorite past time here at GB to announce secret game involvements of GBers in the games we love so much - well here's a real fabulous one.

Some of you may have been aware that Metamorphium, a frequent visitor at the puzzlers forum and here is a composer.

He also has played a prominant role in the production of a board favorite, Dark Fall: Lights Out.

Yup, I am proud to reveal that his off board name is Jan Kavan and he composed the beautiful opening and menu screen music at the start of Dark Fall 2.

bravo Meta!!

Wow! Is there a trailer or a demo? I must hear it to believe it.

Becky, I've met Jonathan on the outer plane. We were visiting Cthulhu by that time to have some tea and cookies...

Anyways Laura forgot to mention that she is the cause why my music is in DF2. So the revelation is complete now. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

You know, I've always wondered how you pronounce "Cthulhu". Since you've visitied, you know how the natives say it.

So Laura was part of the creative synergy? Nope, I didn't know that. Laura, good idea!

source http://www.cthulhu.org

wave

The most commonly heard pronunciation is that suggested by Chaosium, makers of the "Call of Cthulhu" roleplaying game. On the back of many of their gaming products is printed the phrase, "Can you say kuh-THOOL-hoo?". (I pronounce it kuh-THOO-lhoo.)

Another pronunciation is that used by several Lovecraftian scholars. This form is based on Lovecraft's revision tales where Cthulhu is often referred to as "Clooloo" or "Clulu". Unfortunately, this form does not have a sound representing the "th" combination.

Lastly there is a compromise between these two. The "h" sounds are aspirated, thus the "th" is not as in "them" or "thin", but two separate sounds. The first four letters of the word are run together in something like a sneezing sound, "K't'hoo-lhoo".

According to H. P. Lovecraft:
"The actual sound - as nearly as human organs could imitate it or human letters record it - may be taken as something like Khlul'-hloo, with the first syllable pronounced gutturally and very thickly."

"The best approximation one can make is to grunt, bark, or cough the imperfectly formed syllables Cluh-Luh with the tip of the tongue firmly affixed to the roof of the mouth. That is, if one is a human being. Directions for other entities are naturally different."

From these quotes (taken from Lovecraft's letters), one might conclude that the second pronunciation mentioned above is the most correct of the three.
