Elder Gods
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

In the Cthulhu Mythos, the Elder Gods are a group of powerful entities opposed in some way to the Great Old Ones. Their exact nature depends on the author. August Derleth and Brian Lumley's Elder Gods are benevolent powers; other authors find this unsuited to the cosmic horror nature of the Mythos, and describe the Elder Gods as utterly indifferent to humanity as the Great Old Ones they oppose.

Examples include Hypnos, Nodens, and N'tse-Kaambl.
