Crate of Cthulhu

We have often acquired items of disturbing nature. But never before have we come across an object so abjectly horrifying in its implications.

Our contact‘s hands shook as he handed us this box. At first we thought him paranoid, fearing phantom assassins. But after opening that damned crate ourselves we realized the agents of the cult were all too real. Real, yes, but also the least of his fears.

Surely our members are familiar with the pulp contrivances of Mr. Lovecraft, whose feverish imaginings pass in and out of vogue. How terrible to realize his overwrought fictions are only sensational corruptions of the truth! How and where he laid his hands on the manuscript in this crate I do not know — but surely that knowledge haunted him to his dying day, as it will us. And perhaps you.

The typewritten document could be dismissed as the ramblings of a madman. The newspaper articles as coincidence. Even the bas-relief of the lunatic artist confirms little by itself... but the statue! The statue! The famous icon of Lovecraft's tale here revealed to the gaze and touch in all its scabrous, otherworldly malice. What hand made it? What vision inspired it? And what madness in the deep slumbers still, but must one day wake?

It is an altogether remarkable find. Yet even now I question the wisdom of unleashing the information contained therein onto the wider world. For after such knowledge, what forgiveness?

    As good as advertised

    The messier than I expected but I must admit it was truly a worthy oddity to my collection

    Atmospheric Read

    A mysterious box delivered to my door. Many spine-chilling hours spent learning of a fantastic tale with the artifacts of the tragic story bringing added atmosphere.

    Too bad my challenge coin seemed to have been confiscated by UK customs. Wonder what they were thinking whilst searching the package.

    For a few hours, I felt like I was there...

    The Crate of Cthulhu is one of the finest examples of immersive story telling I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing. From the moment I opened that crate, I was utterly immersed in the Mythos. The crate is one big lovingly crafted Easter egg to Call of Cthulhu. When I opened the rusty tin container I swear I even caught the faint scent of sea salt. Actually holding the bas relief in my hands was probably the most surreal part of the experience. Knowing the horrors that befell those that held “the horror in clay” before me was made all the more surreal by the obituary that was included. I shall say no more! If you are home due to Covid 19 and have the income to get this, do it! It will take your mind off the real horrors of the world by thrusting you into the fictional horrors of Lovecraft! 10 out of 10!
