For those unfamiliar with the Cthulhu Mythos, ‘Cthulhu’ is a titanic alien being who slumbers in the inhuman sunken city of R'lyeh which (rumour has it) lies in the South Pacific. Once, many aeons ago, Cthulhu and other beings akin to him (it?) ruled the earth. Such is Cthulhu’s power, that even asleep he is able to influence the dreams of humans and has created a fragmented but global cult of worshipers who consider him a god. Both deity and disciples are working towards the time he’ll wake, breakout of his watery prison, and retake his rightful place as the planet’s ruler. Cthulhu was first created by horror writer HP Lovecraft who wrote many terrifying books featuring Cthulhu and other unspeakable ancient horrors.
