Secret Shoggoth XII

Recommended Posts

Aries04

In a fit of madness, my family thought a strange box on our porch was one of many gifts purchased for me. Over the coming days, the gift became less familiar as each hour passed, until, at once, my wife tells me, "This isn't from me, I don't know who it's from. Also, it's a bit...strange."

 

Must be my Secret Shoggoth. I'm waiting to plumb its eldritch depths until the time is right, but thank you in advance from the darker trails of Texas.

Thanks be to you Secret Shoggoth.

 

Your blessing has arrived.

 

I will await the allotted time, and then oh what a surprise for the friends I'm with at Shoggmas.

I received a mysterious postcard followed by two wonderful gifts from my Secret Shoggoth! Thank you very much! I'll snap a picture and post shortly.

Today I received from a package from South America (odd the return address was for a river rather than a country). Within was a collection of Boris Karloff films. Thanks as wide as that river to my SS. I very much look forward to watching these films on the 25th of December.

Today I also received a wonderful octopoid ornament for my tree! I wish I could post a picture to show it off.

Oh most wondrous of Secret Shoggoths,

 

On the coldest day of the year I opened your package and my heart grew warm at your generosity. The illustrations in the Shadow Out of Time are striking and I look forward to reading the accompanying essays. Then you went still further in your squamous sack to pull for The Starry Wisdom Library, a book I've had my eye on for nigh onto two years.

 

Thanks again and the most sacred of solstices to you and yours.

I'm sure it is obvious but I simply can not find the way to insert a picture from my digital camera.

Thank you Secret Shoggoth! You did an excellent job this year. I was so pleased​ to be passing around an eyeball in a specimen jar to my in-laws while they were thanking each other for the socks and what not. A real excellent assortment of curious goods. Thanks again!

Strange but true.

 

My home is opposite a hill with woods on. The council are going to build homes on this hillside, currently I am protected from the hill by a 20ft stone wall and the stream from the hill runs under my house. My insurance is up to date so I confidently await landslips and disasters.

 

I was intrigued as to the current owner of the hill and the history of the hill and woods so I have been investigating the annals of the area at the local history section of the library, turning up many unusual tales.

 

Shoggoth must have been feeding from the memories of these tales as my secret shoggoth gift is a truly remarkable game scenario set in - My Neighbourhood.

 

The echoes of the stories I've read and the pictures of the locale are mind-blowingly familiar.

 

Dear Secret Shoggoth,

This is a truly marvellous, wonderful present. I much appreciate the research, imagination, time and sheer hard work put into this.

I am not worthy. Thanks O shoggoth

 

. . . and yes I would like the PDF please.

 

Hugs

Almost worth getting myself an eyeball in a jar for next year

Lovely, lovely ephemera, a spiritualist magazine and a newspaper, as well as an effigy of the Big C to melt in my personal ceremonies. Thanks so much kind and wise Shoggie!

Thank you Secret Shoggoth! This will help me identify these entities before they rip away the last shreds of my sanity. Merry Yithmas and may Great Cthulhu eat you last...or first...or whatever order you prefer.

I am grateful to my generous, talented S-S for a trunkful of goodies. From 1920's music to paperbacks, stickers, Necro'Con17, RPG rulebooks, to vintage dice games, oh and a bobble head, it all came packaged early in a illustrated box. I sat with it patiently for weeks, opening it on my birthday which happens to fall in Christmas. I am impressed. Thank you.

I recognize that handwriting and generous profusion of swag... they were my Sec Shoggoth in a past year and you might see more surprises in the future. Cool stuff.

At the appointed time the seals on the blue sparkly bag were removed and a tome detailing scenes of horror and mystery was brought forth!

 

A huuuge thank you to my Secret Shoggoth, who gifted me a copy of Brian Coldrick's 'Behind You. This book is filled with vignettes of a spooky scene with a small couplet on the opposite page giving a little detail on what is/could be happening... it's awesome, full of creepy ideas!

 

Here's a couple of pics.

I received an extraordinarily nice gift from my Secret Shoggoth, and hope to get some pictures up tomorrow.  I apologize for the lateness of my response - we have been dealing with a house full of sick people (including me) for more than a week now, and I'm just starting to stir again.

Oh Secret One! My gift has arrived and you may color me tentacled, er tickled pink. This will provide much entertainment and madness as I gain revelation of the mysteries of the cosmos by having their hues from beyond (or colors out of space) revealed to me!
