Unformatted text preview: Oh, The (Non-Euclidean) Places You'll Go! You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly theyre darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win? And if you go in, should you turn left or rightor right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite? Or go around back and sneak in from behind? Simple its not, Im afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind. You can get so confused that youll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break- necking pace and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space, headed, I fear, toward a most useless place. There's a code hidden in the books, between and around and inside the words. Dr. Seuss. After his death, he became an Outer God, more powerful than all the rest. He did so through maddening lore hidden within his writings, encoded so only the most brilliant and insane people could understand them. Bill Cosby is close, and has hired you and your fellow PCs to find Seuss' Lost Book. That is not dead which can eternal lie! I t's not a lie! You can't deny! You ask: "But why?" And I reply, That with strange aeons even death may die! Pick some well-known characters from Dr. Seuss's stories and turn them into recurring enemies. The Lorax could be an insane oracle of Suess's ascended form who corrupts a grove of trees in the city park and turns it into a nightmarish forest that ensnares hapless passers-by. Or the PC's start noticing all of their food takes on a disturbing greenish tint... Whenever outdoors, or passing near a window, the players get an uncomfortable feeling like they're being watched. Whos in Who-Ville ONLY HORTON CAN SAVE US FROM DISASTER, BUT SOME OF US STILL REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE H IM AS OUR SAVIOR. TURN THEM OUT! LET THEIR DYING SCREAMS FUEL THE NOISE. LET THE SOUR KANGAROO HEAR THEIR LAST BREATHS, AND KNOW THE TRUTH. This is basically every Dr. Seuss book ever. At the very least, they're all filled with bizarre nightmare creatures. 'On Beyond Zebra!' is about letters of the alphabet past 'z'. I don't even need to make something Mythos related up for this, man. It's about letters of the alphabet, that are beyond 'z'. 'The Cat's Quizzer' is a collection of zen-like koans given by the ubiquitous Cat in the Hat, an alleged mask of Nyarlathotep. 'Hunches in Bunches' is actually an encrypted translation of a horrible, eldritch precursor of the I-Ching. Let's take a look at this one, shall we? Here's the first stanza where Seuss' secret alphabet is mentioned: "In the places I go there are things that I see That I never could spell if I stopped with the Z I'm telling you this because you're one of my friends My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends." This sounds like a mystery cult initiation or something. You could straight up have a demon use this line while trying to trade forbidden knowledge for a player's soul, and absolutely...
