Sydney Museum, 1925


‘The crouching image with its cuttlefish head, dragon body, scaly wings, and hieroglyphed pedestal, was preserved in the Museum at Hyde Park; and I studied it long and well, finding it a thing of balefully exquisite workmanship, and with the same utter mystery, terrible antiquity, and unearthly strangeness of material which I had noted in Legrasse’s smaller specimen. Geologists, the curator told me, had found it a monstrous puzzle; for they vowed that the world held no rock like it. Then I thought… about the primal Great Ones: ‘They had come from the stars, and had brought Their images with Them.’
H.P. Lovecraft, ‘The Call of Cthulhu’.

  1. Amazing the original short story go so much of 1920s Sydney correct. Darling Harbour would have been a probable arrival point for the ships. The Museum would have been involved.

    I can imagine secret cult meetings inland of the Narabeen lakes for some reason… there being nothing there then.

  2. I love the idea of a Sydney based Lovecraftian game
