Elder’s Journey, by Maria Kelly

With busy hands, the Protectorate readied the slumbering gods for their journey to a new home. When the Astronomers observed the alignment of certain stars (according to their calculations) the craft were launched.

The Elder Gods went first.

The Astronomers were certain the capsules would remain unopened until they reached their destination: the planet they had seen in visions.

One of the Elders landed near an island on the new world.

The hatch opened slowly and Cthulhu emerged, stretched his scaly body and shook his tentacles. He lumbered off to explore his new domain and to search for tasty supplicants.

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!
