The ancient cuneiform text appears on a number of curious tablets discovered all over the world, each one depicting disturbing carvings.


Ancient Cthulhu Cuneiform Tablet I – Dark Young of Sub-Niggurath

"Ever Their praises, and abundance to the Black Goat of the Woods. Iä! Shub-Niggurath! Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young!"

Discovered in 1923 by Stapleton McTavish the famous explorer and collector of ancient occult artifacts, after being recovered from a wreck off the coast of the ancient city of Gela, Sicily. Thought to be a war ship of the mysterious Sea Peoples, McTavish was at a loss as to how to came to be there.


Ancient Cthulhu Cuneiform Tablet II - Nyarlathotep

“There are references to a Haunter of the Dark awaked by gazing into the Shining Trapezohedron, and insane conjectures about the black gulfs from which it was called. The being is spoken of as holding all knowledge, and demanding monstrous sacrifices.”

Discovered on the body of a dead thief in 1923 by Stapleton McTavish the famous explorer and collector of ancient occult artifacts. He was shot by McTavish while looting an archaeological dig 250 miles west of Basrah, Iraq. The focus of the dig was a recently discovered burial mound which was in fact the entrance to a vast underground tomb, of King Gilgamesh, the 5000 ruler of the ancient city of URUK almost 5000 year ago.

It was also noted that the thief wore a headband with a curious and unsettling symbol on, and a strip of blood soaked material hanging from it.


Ancient Cthulhu Cuneiform Tablet III - Cthulhu

“That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.” 

Discovered in 1923 by Stapleton McTavish the famous explorer and collector of ancient occult artifacts. After becoming lost in a freak sandstorm in the Empty Quarter, almost dead from the heat, he stumbled into the ruins of a great city almost completely taken by the sands. Taking shelter from the storm he found a passage leading deep under the city which lead to a chamber full of tablets similar to the one he managed to bring back. All subsiqent attempts to find the ruin have failed, but McTavish believes it to be the dreaded Nameless City, and the tablets were the inspiration for the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred's abhorrent Necronomicon.

These are terrific-looking pieces! I am curious, though, as to why you would create a bundle product, rather than a bundle of products? If someone picked up one of these props, then like it so much they wanted more, they'd have to buy the remaining products separately at full-price, or also re-buy the original one this way. With a bundle of products, the customer gets credit for having bought one (or more) of the bundled products, and then gets a proportional discount on the remaining ones. Much bigger incentive to buy more later...

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
