Shouldn't be a problem.  Firstly it's non-comercial. Secondly the Mythos
was one of the first 'collaborative writing' experiments, and it's left
the copyright in a strange state. As I understand it, anyone can use the
Mythos (or at least HPLs elements of it) in their own works. Thirdly
we're not copying the CoC RPG system. I think we're sufficiently
different to stand on our own.
