Q and A with the MU Skulls               
Q- Say Frank, I read your very short report on Adepticon 2015. Interesting that you didn't include your severe struggle with
bowel incontinence as judging from your pale sweaty demeanor it was causing you some discomfort.

               - Observant Lou

A- You know what? Screw YOU Lou!

               - MU Skulls Frank

Q- Hey, I just read Lou's question. Looks like you had a crappy time then?

               - Adepticon Man

A- Screw YOU Man!

Q- What's this about a Hobbit Tales card box?

A-
It's right here!



Q- Where can I get one of those awesome badge holders made of yarn that go through a T-shirt like Frank had?

            - Aimless

A- My Ganny knitted that for Frank. Apparently she saw the whole story on her AOL news page and whipped it up for him!

Q- Is it true you were kicked out of your own game at Gen Con 2012 for not wearing a badge?

          -Running Man

A- Yes, Running it's true. I didn't have a badge and they shut down my game even though I had an MU Skulls T-shirt and the
guy had checked my badge the day before. Maybe I should have gotten mad or something but I didn't say a word, I just
packed up and left.

          - MU Skulls Frank

  Yeah, that's totally not true, not even close. Frank yelled until his face turned purple. The poor guy was just doing
  his job and Frank suddenly decides he has to go bug-fuck on someone and picks this guy. Luckily, there was no man in
  the back to yell "attack" or it would have turned into a ballroom blitz! Right next to an actual ballroom!

                  -MU Skulls Mike

          Well, perhaps I remember it slightly differently but what is important is we got that all worked out for next year!

                          -MU Skulls Frank

                  Sure, we'll pin your badge on a piece of yarn and run it through your shirt like you were in Kindergarten!

Q- Where was Rosie during Gen Con 2012?

A- Arkham Asylum due to uh.... nervous exhaustion.

Q- Are the rumors true that Mike is has crossed over?

    -Sleepless in Scranton

A- That's a tough question. I haven't had any contact from Mike in sometime but I haven't seen his name appear in the
obituaries either. At this point I think we all just need to keep hope alive....

    - MU Skulls Frank

Update 10-30-2011 Mike is alive!

Q- I'm still on the fence about the new Keeper Screen. Should I buy it?

    -Tentative Guy

A- Run, don't walk, to the nearest computer or game store and make sure you get one before they are all gone! This screen
is the best GM screen I've ever seen. I'm not sure who did the layout or who was in charge of choosing the information to
be contained on the screen but I'd buy that guy a beer.

Q- I see that the MU Skulls are a Premier Event Group again. Doesn't that just prove that you're a shill for the suits and not
the edgy cultists everyone thinks you are, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

    -Dirty Hippie

A- The MU Skulls won't rest until every dirty hippie mind has been blown beyond the planet Yuggoth into the swirling atomic
chaos idiot god at the center of the universe where their lost being will be devoured in vileness and mind destroying horror.
How's that for edgy?

Q- Frank you really seem like you love Call of Cthulhu, how long have you been playing?
   
   - Curious Dave

A- Well Dave, before the game was released in 1981, I was an avid fan of Lovecraft fiction. I started working in the Game
Section of a hobby store when I was 16 years old and bought the game in 1985. I've played and owned every edition of Call
of Cthulhu.

Q- What does MU in the MU Skulls stand for?

   - Bored 2 Deth

A- Well Bored, MU refers to the lost continent in the Pacific as suggested by James Churchward.

   - MU Skulls David

Q- Wha??? That doesn't make sense though does it? What does have MU have to do with Skulls then?

A- Well, those people would be dead wouldn't they? Therefore, skulls.

   Q- It would just make more sense if it stood for Miskatonic University Skulls, like if it was a secret club
           or something.
   
   A- I can't change what your perception is, all I can tell you is that it's related to a Japanese word alleged to
           mean  “Your question cannot be answered because it depends on incorrect assumptions”

           Q- Oh, I get it. You're a jerk and you're not going to tell me.
           
           A- I know you are but what am I?

                   Q- Nice, now we're in third grade. I thought you were professionals?

                   A- thpptthhhpptthpptffthhpppt

Q- I really love the way Mike's games are character centric. He really also seems to put the characters and players first. The
way he describes the gaming environment is amazing. Why can't all Gen Con GMs have the same skills? Maybe he could
teach a class?

   - Big Fan

A- Next Question.

Q- Frank, who is your favorite game company?

   - Phil M.

A- It has to be Chaosium. I've known them for over ten years now and they are a group of guys that love the hobby and love
their game. Those that know them well understand it's not about soulless profit for them it's about telling a great story with a
group of friends. If you take the time to start running games for them, you are doing it out of friendship and because you like
the game. They understand and appreciate that when very few other companies do these days.

Q- Is it true that David Durden once killed a man just for snoring?

   - Madness Survivor

A- Madness, that was old west gun fighter John Wesley Harden, not David Durden.

Q- Frank, how can you be Gen Con's youngest GM if you've been playing Call of Cthulhu since first edition?

   - Charles

A- Next Question.

Q- Is Rosie single?

   - Shannon from Innsmouth

A- Why yes, I believe she is.
