Cthulhu Fhtagn! Centipede Edition.

Copper Centipede once again brings us some intriguing Mythos carvings. This time it's a set of soapstone Cthulhu idols.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Put enough of those together, and what you have is a set of game pieces.

I would suggest not for chess or Arkham Horror, oh no, but perhaps for a nice game of THUD.

Four-plus-four Elder Gods against 32 Investigators, perhaps, with R'lyeh as the Thud Stone?

Or (looking at Jason's Keziah Mason collection) two-cubed Elder Things against 32 smaller Shoggoths, with a narrow peak of paranoia at the center?

Recalling what tentacled creature the-number-between-seven-and-nine belonged to at the start of the Discworld series, it all seems to come full circle....

(Don't SAY the number! You might get... et.)
