    Set of Six Coasters

    Six unique coasters letterpress printed in two-colors with beautiful designs featured in The Miskatonic Papers including mysterious glyphs of Cthulic. This ancient language is closely related to Glagolitic, the oldest known Slavic alphabet. Both elegant and absorbent, these coasters will protect your table and help ward off the madness that comes to those who drink too deeply from the well of darkness.

    Artifact Fragment

    A portion of the actual artifact the Miskatonic Tunguska Expedition finds and then so carelessly breaks. The artifact broke into six different pieces and you'll receive one at random. Painted and aged, it will look similar to the photos, but each one will be different. Lots of people went mad after finding this, so maybe don't leave it out in the open.
    **Kickstarter Only**
    You will also receive a set of six coasters and a set of two stickers along with your artifact.
