I think you guys are missing my question. I'm not asking about the lore of the Old Gods. I am asking about how you feel about their story (or lack thereof). I understand that Old Gods are based off of Lovecraft and are "evil incarnate." I will also give you that "the motivational system of the old gods is incomprehensible to mere mortals."My feeling is that because of these things, there is no connection to the story for me. There is nothing to draw me in. No fall from grace, no tragedy, no comedy.Someone mentioned The Joker. I don' think that is a fair comparison, as the Joker is still human, and has an origin you can find out about, or at least imagine how he came to be based on real-life psychopathic killers. There is no origin for Old Gods. They just are, and what they are is evil, without any explanation, rhyme, or reason. I find this very unsatisfying, and it makes me feel disinterested towards the Old Gods because I just can't suspend my disbelief in their stories.So, I will ask the question again: Does anyone else have a hard time getting into the lore/story of old gods?
