God damn that first season was some of the best television ever put to screen.

My friend doesn't get the reference, what show?


RicklessBastards t1_j12lseu wrote

I agree. I think it’s the single best season of any show of all time. Truly epic tv.


WnDelPiano t1_j12oqc7 wrote

The moment I rewatch that show and I get to the "time is a flat circle" I need to be high as fuck and replay that shit at least 10 times.

"I think about my daughter now, and what she was spared. Sometimes I feel grateful. The doctor said she didn’t feel a thing, went straight into a coma. Then, somewhere in that blackness, she slipped off into another deeper kind. Isn’t that a beautiful way to go out, painlessly as a happy child? Trouble with dying later is you’ve already grown up. The damage is done. It’s too late."

The writing of this show is a thing of beauty. Truly excellent.

I've always wanted to try to make some kind of "playing card art" like this but I have never been able to find the inspiration. Yours is very well done

Reminds me of Path of Exile, you should post over there and possibly check out some of the fan art.

Yeah I actually made a drawing of the elder after I posted BnW version of this card a year ago :D

Love this!

King in Yellow is it's name. It's a creation of H.P. Lovecraft.

DrRubberDong t1_j11a0do wrote

Iam 40,i Read everything Lovecraft Related amd never heard of the Yellow King until last year when i read his book.

When did Lovecraft reference the King in yellow?

I find the King In yellow as one of the most influencing books i ve ever read. A bit too poetic frequently.. But definitely effected the way i write.


wordefy t1_j102dw6 wrote

That new Revocation track "Strange and Eternal" talks about the yellow king and the place where black stars rise, and getting lost in Carcosa. Cool to see more imagery inspired by the same stories

Departedart OP t1_j12xivr wrote

Thanks! Though I'm not Cthulhuproject I'm the artist so you bought it from him 😅 I sell prints only


strawberrytaint t1_j12z4r9 wrote

Ohhh, I see. I hope you make something from the deck sales too though. I still want to support you because it's your art that got me to buy the deck in the first place. Where can I find your prints to buy?


Departedart OP t1_j131m21 wrote

I get only 6% from the deck while on Teespring I get 55%. I had to reupload my entire shop so not all the designs are there yet but I hope you find something you like :)

Got this deck and played my first poker game with it this weekend amazing and awesome looking cards.


HouseAnt0 t1_j0zr0bk wrote

I remember reading The King In Yellow and being very disappointed that it has almost nothing to do with the king in yellow, its a collection of short stories, is not even that much horror more like weird mystery. One really good sci fi stories tho, very weird how old it is for the kind of concepts it has.


OwOegano_Infinite t1_j1069at wrote

Same here, the story about the man who had deluded himself into thinking he was meant to be Emperor was amazing, the rest was kinda meh, and severas stories werent even related to the mythos...


[deleted] t1_j1094xu wrote



OwOegano_Infinite t1_j109qpi wrote

I meant the King in Yellow mythos. Maybe I just got a shitty edition, but some of the stories were entirely unrelated to the KiY.


Raul_Coronado t1_j10l1t0 wrote

There was no King in Yellow mythos when it was written. That little story about the play was the genesis.

Did something make The King in Yellow go viral sometime this year? It so, what was it?

I've heard the story mentioned or referenced weekly for the past 2 or 3 months. It's cool that a 125+ year old story is getting so much attention and so many new reads.
