Special Announcement.

In a effort to generate more visitors to our site, we’ve been trying to actively recruit Cthulhu fans to visit shoggoth.net. Unfortunately we’re not finding fans fast enough for our liking. As such, we’ve begun manufacturing our own fans here in-house. That said, our RPG editor phobia got the ball rolling last night with a 8lbs 4oz girl named Rachel Lynn. Congratulations David, we wish you all the best.

NOTE:Your loyal webmaster will not be following in this as there are special agreements with the US government and NATO stipulating I can not breed.

Servitors of the Spider-God, Atlach-Nacha

From “The Seven Geases,” a short story by Clark Ashton Smith, comes the Great Old One named Atlach-Nacha. Since like most other Great Old Ones Atlach-Nacha has campaign ending power, the keeper can now foil the best laid plans of investigators with a new, equally horrific, and slightly less powerful mythos creature that serves this Spider-God.

This Old House

“I saw her again,” said Chris, looking up at me from his seat on the floor. He still held the Playstation controller in his hand, although from the look in his eye, it was all but forgotten now. On the television screen, his car swerved off the road and smashed into a tree.
