DuckTales + Call of Cthulhu (with a bit of CHILL) = Duck Call of Cthulhu

Before we went to the Disney World parks, I got to hang out with two of my favorite people, my best friend Mark M. and his most awesome wife, Jackie.  He mentioned he's recently picked up a DarkWing Duck Disney Pin (if your not familiar with the Disney Pin craze, it  makes Magic: the Gathering look like amateur hour).

Then as I ventured the through the parks I began waxing nostalgic about DuckTales, DarkWing Duck, and Carl Bark's Uncle Scrooge comics.  I really enjoyed all of those stories and once had a buddy, tell me about a Basic Role Playing session he ran with non-gamers where they were Ducks.  The final piece of the puzzle came to me in the Little Mermaid show at Hollywood Studios, when Eric ran Ursula through with his ship...a moment straight out of the Cthulhu Mythos.

And so I began contemplating FOWL (it's inspiration is taken from CHILL).  A high adventure game of battling the Mythos and it's shadowy minions.

Ursula = Cthulhu

Chernabog = Ithaqua

DeSpell family = Whately family

Maleficent = Mother Hydra

NegaDuck = Nyarlathotep

These are just my initial brainstorms but I'm planning on continuing to try to work things out.

At this point I'm leaning toward BRP, but I'll consider Savage Worlds, AGE and GURPS as options.
