He was very anti-semitic until he made Jewish friends, unless my memory fails me.
To be fair to Lovecraft, most everyone was grossly racist [and sexist] back then.
And I suggest a Wisdom of 2 or 4. And anything else that gives poor will saves. In Lovecraft scary shadows send you permanently mad.
I've actually heard that even by the standards of his day he was off-puttingly xenophobic and Anglophilic. This is more reason that I'm proposing a build of "archetypical Lovecraft protagonist" more so than "Howard Phillip Lovecraft". Although some good-natured Brevic jingoism might be in the spirit of things as well.
I'd like to believe that all my favorite artists and writers didn't also do terrible things... but I'd also like to believe personality flaws are not a barrier to artistic talent and that a man's achievements can be celebrated independently of his failings.
My GM told me to use the "elite array" [15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10] for stats, so I can't really "dump" Wisdom. It will definitely be his lowest stat, though. If anybody knows of any feats or bard spells that lower your Will save for some benefit (or anything else that might do so), I'm all ears.
