Derleth Mythos

From CthulhuWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Derleth instituted a structure in which the Great Old Ones were representatives of the four classical elements, earth, air, fire, and water. Unfortunately, there was no entity to represent fire, so Derleth invented Cthugha to fill that role. In addition, he incorporated the idea of the war in heaven, with certain Elder Gods fighting on humanity's behalf against the demonic Great Old Ones.
