The New Mystery Great Old One is Rising!

Posted by Sandy Petersen (Creator)

We're getting so close to the end!  Thanks again to our amazing backers.  We've surpassed our $1,260,000 stretch goal and now a deeply mysterious creature has been unleashed! Comes free with every The Book of Eibon OR De Vermiis Mysteriis pledge level.

...but, what will it be?

De Vermis MysteriisWikipedia: De Vermis Mysteriis, or Mysteries of the Worm, is a fictional grimoire created by Robert Bloch and incorporated by H. P. Lovecraft into the lore of the Cthulhu Mythos.

      Y'golonac would be cool but I would much prefer Glaaki. Too bad Mr. Campbell remains aloof. Even though it seems Nodens has been ruled out, I could almost see him as a reset button of sorts? The promise of this Mystery Great Old One is quite the puzzle!

    2. Miguel Duran on

      More news on this front is what I'm currently most anticipating. Details please!

    3. Redzen

      All that is left really is Glaaki, Eihort, or Nodens. Sandy has already said that Nodens was out.

      The Dunwich Horror is already in game. Take a look at Spawn of Yog-Sothoth.

      Dunwich Horror please!!!

      Sandy, thanks for the info about the "Y'golonac" affair. It is a pity that you didn't manage to do it, but I can't complain at all with the gang of GOO you have reunited ;) Congratulations!

      Would this qualify under the 3 greater old ones for $50?

    9. Mike Malley on

      It's not a kickstarter exclusive.

    10. Tony Reardon on

      Is it kickstart exclusive, or will we be able to see it in stores post launch of the game?

      For those of us pledgers who aren't on the BOE or DVM pledge levels, can we add $20 for this new chap? I'm pretty sure I saw that we could, but would like to make sure.

      Hey, I wanted to see Y'golonac myself, but J. Ramsey Campbell didn't reply to my e-mail, and we weren't able to uncover his literary agent until way too late in the process. So we tried to make up the difference with other great old ones, and I don't think we have done too badly. Maybe some day we will be able to release the Severn Valley stuff.

      Oh, Alex, I didn't imagine it was going to be a completely new new GOO. That sounds interesting :) But damn, I really wanted to see Y'golonac :P

    14. Andreas

      Never mind, found him...:-/

    15. Andreas

      Maybe I misunderstood (about it being a completely new one), but so far I am missing Ithaqua.

    16. Alex Wickersham on

      aleksandr that actually makes sense... eyeball here, mouth there, they can change places... add tentacles and Mr. Potatohead is a Mythos monster

    17. Silvio Peng

      will this GOO as well be included for pledges that sum up for a certain $ as do the other free GOO?

    18. aleksandar stossitch on

      i picture an amorphous mr greatoldonehead with various detachable mix n match attachments....make yer own 100 proof goo

    19. Justin Gadze on

      Now I can imagine the GOO similar to a big sandworm from Dune..

    20. Alex Wickersham on

      Juan, my understanding is this Great Old One will be a new one... like a really new one that no one's heard of before.

    21. Juan Luis Pérez de Luque on

      Y'golonac! He deserves it or will be VERY angry with you! :P

    22. Realm Master K

      All we really know about it is that people call it the Twice Invoked.

    23. JM Fernandez on

      @Best, yes $20.

    24. Michael on

      I think it should be named Geg

      Best Bay Comics & Games

      Is it $20 confirmed for non pledges of that level, or are we just guessing?

    26. Enrique Estrada on

      Already added my $20 for this from ceb 2

      D'oh! I've been waiting for a big reveal!
      Sandy, you're a tease!

      Doesn't matter what it is. The mind won't be able to fathom it!
