46. SPAWN OF SHUB-NIGGURATH Beast, Cthulhu
"Ia! Ia! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat in the Woods with a Thousand Young!"
H.P. Lovecraft's Shub-Niggurath is the Cthulhu Mythos equivalent of a monstrous fertility diety, thus making its spawn a natural for inclusion in a wilderness-themed set. Unfortunately, although they are frequently mentioned, neither Shub-Niggurath or its Thousand Young actually appear in the flesh in any of H.P.L.'s stories, so we must turn to a Mythos story by Robert Block- Notebook Found in a Deserted House- for a description: Something black in the road, something that wasn't a tree. Something big and black and ropy, just squatting there, waiting, with ropy arms squirming and reaching. . . It came crawling up the hillside. . . and it was the black thing of my dreams – that black, ropy, slime jelly tree-thing out of the woods. It crawled up and it flowed up on its hoofs and mouths and snaky arms.
