Description[edit | edit source]
The Elder Things are horrendous beings of near indescribable forms, inspiring madness upon anyone unfortunate enough to bear their sight. Their body is an enormous mass in the rough shape of a barrel, made irregular by bulging ridges arranged along its cylindrical shape. From the intersections of said ridges, segmented structures of shapes resembling that of a tree's roots emerge from the rough surface, carried behind it as it moves along the waters. Its head, or what could perhaps be interpreted as such, can only be described as a collection of porous, crystalline outgrowths vaguely resembling leaves, emerging alongside horrendous, fleshy protrusions whose tips are like the teeth of an animal, their crimson forms intertwining with an enormous eldritch crystal resting proudly in the center of the creature's head. Finally, from the creature's posterior sprouts many collections of bloated, fleshy growths, pulsating and twisting in a rhythmic cycle, allowing the monstrous being to swim along the unfathomable waters of its dwelling.
