Historical Context Edit
Never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor, Lovecraft saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time he died at the age of 46.
While his maximum Sanity is only 70, his starting companions and pistol make for a great hunting party. Scottish Soldier's perk turns Whisky from strong to extremely potent source of sanity. Lovecraft is also the only explorer than can ever consider using Necronomicon safely thanks to greatly decreased costs of sanity.
During rest periods, there is a chance that Lovecraft will add the racist trait to other trek members.
If by any chance you will reach Golden Pyramid with at least 1 sanity left, feel free to use the Necronomicon - it will generate at least one spell.
