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?

    He loved it!

    I don't know about you, but to find something that is not video game related as a gift is near impossible for my teen son. I was fortunate enough to see the email from the Mysterious Box Company with the final offer to receive in time for Christmas. Not only did I receive the package in plenty of time to wrap and put under the tree but my 13 yo son LOVED IT! All the packaging, letters, coin, and manuscript not only created intrigue but the statue was also amazing. He asked me to get more of these in the future and that it was the best present he had ever received! He even stated that he couldn't wait to get something like this for his children when they are his age. An astounding proclamation from a hard to shop for and hard to impress teenager. Thank you so much!

    Great Gift! For a Lovecraft Fan!

    I'd bought one of these for myself, and as a Lovecraft fan, bought a second as a gift for another

    Lovecraft enthusiast, who was completely delighted with it!

    Worked out great!

    I got multiple products for different friends as groomsmen gifts and they were ecstatic every time. There was really cool stuff in there and they had fun working out the puzzles.

    Creepy

    It was really fun digging into a splintery wooden chest of ancient newspaper clippings and spooky statues. Saving up for the next experience!
