You would be impressed. At the time I bought fanmade "Celestial Wisdom" PDF for 1c more, than this "Lovecraftain Numenera" and was impressed how it was several magnitudes better. You can check it yourself, because now it's PDF is free on drivethrurpg. I can't even compare amounts of content and passion, that was put in these two supplements. And it was first RCG published book. See for yourself and make own opinion.

But it's not an excuse for someone like Monte Cook to sell this... mockery of a supplement. I bet even you or OP can write better three page article on Lovercraftian horror and Mythos in Numenera. I've seen some articles, better than this. They weren't sold, and authors didn't ask for donations because they know better than to overprice their work either. Without art it uses (read: wastes. It could've been used in something much more cooler) LN shouldn't cost more than 50c.

Tharizdun and Elder Elemental Evils are probably Lovecraftian elements Cyseals talkin about, Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun is still one o best modules you can get for this, real creepy if dun well. Think later D&D had Far Realms or someat that focused on usual gibberin, tentacled mind benders.

I got lovecraftian vibe from the Bloom and the creatures I saw in it. First creature I don't know it's name, the Maw etc.
