The Coming of Cthulhu

Author Comments

Two hundred thousand years ago, when the Great Old Ones came down to Earth and tried to subjugate the ascending species of Homo sapiens, they may not have necessarily been greeted with open arms. At least not once early humanity realized what the Old Ones were really up to.

This was a scene that came to mind after I recently reread The Call of Cthulhu. The Great Old Ones are supposed to have come down to earth sometime long before recorded history, so I wondered how prehistoric humans would react to these cosmic monstrosities trying to enslave them.

I like but as the leader of the cult of the tentacle am fairly upset that cuthulu is stabed
(you can ing ok re r he cuthulu part it's really nice)



With those round eye, and maybe lack of sharp features (except a few veiled teeth), it somehow doesn't seem very menacing, that big green squiggly thing! Looks interesting though; interesting backstory.

Yeah, I'm not 100% satisfied with Cthulhu's design himself. Lovecraftian monsters can be challenging to design particularly because they're supposed to be so terrible to look at. Thanks for the crit!
