I think I went a monster too far. Why couldn't Robert W. Chambers have written The King In Literally Any Colour Except Yellow?

Monster May(hem): Cthulhu and Cultists
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu... aw crap, I used the same first line last year. Let me come up with something else.
[thinks for a couple of minutes]
OK, let's just move on.

The Old Ones are no longer smiling on me
This is it. This is the point where I lose my sanity and Alicia has to have the spare room redecorated with rubber tiles.

Monster May(hem): Yog-Sothoth
Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

Monster May(hem): Byakhee
As I said in my first post about Cthulhu: Death May Die, byakhee are "interstellar predators that feed on their victims". That's pretty much it; they don't have a huge backstory. About the only interesting fact is that they weren't invented by HP Lovecraft, despite appearing in one of his stories.

Paranormal Investigators 1
You know, given I've owned a pretty decent DSLR for almost eight years, you think I'd get the hang of getting everyone in focus by now. But no.

Monster May(hem): Shoggoth
"Formless protoplasm able to mock and reflect all forms and organs and processes — viscous agglutinations of bubbling cells — rubbery fifteen-foot spheroids infinitely plastic and ductile — slaves of suggestion, builders of cities — more and more sullen, more and more intelligent, more and more amphibious, more and more imitative! Great God! What madness made even those blasphemous Old Ones willing to use and carve such things?"

Finally taking a look at Cthulhu: Death May Die
With it being Monster May(hem) — although this post isn't an entry — and with me now living only 40 miles from where one of Lovecraft's stories is set, I decided it's about time I cracked open the board game I bought back in November.

Monster May(hem): Elder Thing
Before we kick off, I just want to say that I've been looking forward to this year's Monster May(hem) for ages. I had an absolute blast last year, painting five figures over the course of the month. I chose to begin this year's challenge with an Elder Thing by RAFM. I've named him Giles.
