Unspeakable Cults: The Starry Wisdom
We give the Hideous Creatures treatment not to one beast but to a whole cult - the "disliked and unorthodox Starry Wisdom sect." Vile rites and terrifying symbolism unfold to shadow your Trail of Cthulhu game¸ along with alternate takes¸ investigative leads¸ possible echoes¸ and sinister scenario seeds.
In this series¸ Kenneth Hite looks at the creatures¸ species¸ and monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos from every non-Euclidean angle. Alternate versions and new explanations provide the same jolt of mythic bisociation that the gods and titans receive in the TRAIL OF CTHULHU corebook. Hite traces these foul things through their legendary history¸ and provides further clues for any Investigator to follow. Horrific scenario seeds burst and bloom¸ story spines protrude and deform¸ in a blasphemous garden any Keeper can harvest.

"a brief injection of Hite-ian awesome … they're just about the right length to digest in a single sitting¸ and full of amazing ideas that will make anyone's game into a flavourful occult gumbo." - High Trust¸ High Drama Blog
"I consider this series a wake-up call to the lacklustre¸ to remind them tales of the Mythos¸ using whatever system¸ should instill uneasiness¸ upset and fear. Grasp the potential of the unearthly and inhuman…" - Paul Baldowski
