The Three Lobed Burning Eye

“I see it—coming here—hell-wind—titan blur—black wings—Yog-Sothoth save me—the three-lobed burning eye. . . .”

- H.P. Lovecraft, 'The Haunter of the Dark"

   The talented Morgan Loebel returns to our pages with this horrifically well done three-lobed eye.  My first thought was of the final image poor Robert Blake saw before his unfortunate disappearance in Providence.

Tabletop Cube Puzzle

MattsWithTatts has posted a fun little DIY for creating a cube puzzle for players in his Dungeons and Dragons game.  The only caveat I would offer is that buying or producing 27 individual foam cubes, and then assembling them, probably isn't the easiest way to bring this particular style of puzzle to your tabletop.  Commercial cube assembly puzzles are cheap and widely available.  If you want to be particularly fiendish you can always use a Soma cube.

The Old Gods

Slagovir continues to keep the Old Gods alive, this time bringing us an idol of Kolyada carved from aged oak.

"The god Kolyada, also known as Kolyadnik, is a figure of Slavic paganism associated with the festivals and rituals of the winter solstice. In Slavic mythology, Kolyada is associated with the return of the sun and the beginning of a new cycle of nature. His cult was widespread among various Slavic tribes. The holiday of Kolyada was usually celebrated in late December or early January, and this time was accompanied by various rites and rituals aimed at ensuring fertility and prosperity in the new year. In some beliefs, Kolyada represented a young god with whom hopes of renewal and rebirth were associated."
