I arrived home yesterday to find the following on my kitchen table...

Elder Sign! Thank you Secret Shoggoth! I look forward to playing it with my wife and/or gaming group this week. :D

You must have been suffering from an overwhelming sense of dread brought on by the realization of your own insignificance in the universe. Glad that Elder Sign™ cured that!

A massive thanks to my secret shoggoth, I had a few puzzled moments, as I had ordered an item from the company the day before you'd boxed your gift in!

Once opened I found a handcrafted idol of the great one himself, though my other half thought it was a angel?
I think she failed her sanity roll, and then failed her know roll to see it for what it is!

Again a huge thanks to my shoggie, and to CAT for running it for the rest for us.
The static in my mind, leaves me hollow and unkind.

Here it is, a week before Christmas
And what to my wondering eyes should appear
Glistening with slime and foul excrescences
It's a package on my stoop, pulsing with seasonal intent
Open the box with much trepidation
Gosh it's a book from my Secret Shoggoth
Reading material in history from Oxford Press, purveyors of expensive small run tomes that I only buy myself on special occasions
Antediluvian human history in scope and focus
Practical value as a reference source high
History books are always appreciated
Elevated now to a lofty place
Right on the shelf next to my other Oxford Press texts

Thanks Secret Shoggoth, whoever you may be :-)

I have received a couple of wrapped gifts from my Shoggoth, one yesterday marked "One more from your shoggoth" this allowed me to get my mental wards in place so as to defend myself from the onslaught of the initial parcel which had become displaced in time and arrived today. Both parcels seem to contain books of some kind.
Thank you to my Secret Shoggoth for these gifts.

I'll post pic after Christmas.

Aaaaieee... Blindsided by the arrival of a third, even larger parcel. The first two were clearly a ruse to lull me into a sense of false confidence before the mind blasting third strike.

Thank you again.

I've just received a parcel, definitely Shoggoth-y, cos it's got tentacles on it and says "Yockenthwaite" on the outside! Will post before and after pics after I've opened it. Looks intriguing! Thank you Secret Shoggoth.

My package arrived this morning. It was easy to see it was a Secret Shoggoth package - see picture.

I opened it just now.

There are 5 things in there:

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - a book I already wanted to read
The Z to Z of Great Britain - covers the 41 places in Britain starting with Z, looks great
Moon DVD - haven't seen, and will enjoy
Rare Exports A Christmas Tale DVD - looks truly bizarre! I'm sure I'll enjoy it
and, not least, a C is for Cthulhu chocolate bar, with message on the back ("In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming ...") - yum!

Thank you Secret Shoggoth :)

Naughty cultists, aren't you supposed to open your presents on Christmas Day?

Naughty cultists, aren't you supposed to open your presents on Christmas Day?

As a cultist, you have two concerns:
1) The world may end if Cthulhu rises;
2) A bunch of investigators may come into your lair, armed to the teeth with tommy guns and dynamite, giving you a very bad day
So it's understandable that they are impatient.

Some mythos media for the holidays and an audio CD of I know not yet what! :) Plus a most mysterious letter dated December 18, 1927 - full of portent, and cryptically signed "SJB, Glasgow".

Thank you, Secret Shoggoth!

Also, this same day another arrival. The reason Y...

I have been remiss in not thanking my Secret Shoggoth. Last week, I received a copy of the Trail of Cthulhu core book and "The Shifting Sands", part of an international-flavored Fantasy Flight COC card game expansion. Very wonderful. An extra few handfuls of viscous vegetation will be tossed into the chlorotic flame this Yule Eve in honor of my Secret Shoggoth.

Thank you revealed Shoggoth Shane for your generous gift of Elder Sign! I shall tread the darkness and investigate where my nose and sanity do not belong to my heart's content!

And three hearty cheers for CAT for once again taking up this burden.

With trepidation I opened my postal box ....all the while noticing a strange figure in tattered robes watching me and muttering....I grabbed the waiting package and ran to safety of my confines. Open the strange parcel I found inside a copy of "The Whisperer in Darkness" DVD...
Thanks to my secret Shoggoth!!!! I am soooooo excited to finally own this....and all I can say is...."IA! IA!" ...oh and "FHTAGN!"...on my way to give into to the insanity!
