The Great Old Ones’ invasion of our reality was a cataclysm for humanity on an unprecedented scale. Not only did the eldritch horrors from beyond space-time destroy our world physically, they also altered reality to suit their needs…but their plan did not go off without a hitch. As much as they changed our reality, our reality changed them in turn. The most apparent of these changes was that Dread Cthulhu, High Priest of the Great Old Ones, is actually kind of nice. For an alien demon god.
No one knows exactly what has happened to him, and Cthulhu himself isn’t talking. He’s happy eating Girl Scout Cookies and playing with his pet octopus Squishy.
Prior to the rise of the Great Old Ones Cthulhu spent most of his time sleeping in the city of R’lyeh deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. Reports that he was “dead and dreaming” appear to have been greatly exaggerated.
