The 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?
The Crate of Cthulhu will immerse you in H.P. Lovecraft’s infamous tale, bringing to life all the documents and artifacts mentioned in the original work.
The Crate of Cthulhu is a horror experience that is not appropriate for young audiences or those who might be sensitive to disturbing material. Your recipient will enjoy it if they are fans of H.P. Lovecraft and weird fiction.

Completed this with my kids, two teens. Was a great way to give them an intro to HP Lovecraft, as it's a bear to get kids to read a book these days. They loved it! The way it was set up and packaged was so similar to the actual story. It was a fantastic experience.
I had my children reading Lovecraft in their teens and they are now diehards. My daughter is involve in the gaming community and loves the Cthulhu mythos based games. She was delighted with this “mysterious package.” Now, do a Lovecraftian one with gaming involved - please!
Thanks so much for your feedback. May we suggest HASTUR for your game loving daughter.
Oh, and stay tuned. Something big, and "Lovecraftian", is on the horizon...
Got this for my dad then used my Google voice phone number to text him messages just prior to delivery demanding to "give up the artifact". It was a hit!
All of the products that I received, The Crate of Cthulhu, as well as The King in Yellow, came packaged very well and no damage done to any of the figure. Very well done.
