Shoggoth, Interdimensional Avatar projection of YOG SOTHOTH
Greater Subdimensional Entity
Written in Psionic above is the word GUGALUSHARGAL, or "All
Devourer". GUGAL translates to devourer, and SHARGAL is universality.
The size of these beings is hugely variable depending on numerous factors, including
consumed mass and duration of Subdimensional opening. Huge instances of Interdimensional
Avatar projections have been measured at hundreds of feet in diameter. Alternatively, specimens
have been found anchored in spaces no larger than closets that could not have been more than six
feet in rough diameter. The originating Supreme Subdimensional entity from which these
projections derive is reputed to be of a scale that would rival an entire planet.
The Dunwich Horror (1928) - H.P. Lovecraft
The Elder Spawn maintain a Subdimensional gate in the Deep Stronghold,
through which they coerce and entrap massive pseudopods of one of the formless Supreme
Subdimensional Entities, YOG SOTHOTH. These entities, or portions thereof, are known as
Interdimensional Avatar projections. They take the form of protoplasmic masses of writhing
organs, flesh, appendages, mouths, and eyes. They are in a state of constant change, such that
their appearance varies drastically with every sighting. Any being foolish enough to come too
close will be attacked and drawn into the main ingestion maw by enormous tentacles.
There is a notably enormous Interdimensional Avatar projection that has made its home in
the elaborate cave system beneath Shoreham and the Ovens. Anchored to our realm with a steady
diet of cattle, villagers, and visitors over the last two centuries, it has become a truly enormous
specimen of which the Village Council is very proud, rivaling even those splendid specimens in
the Antarctic and New England.
The Interdimensional Avatar projections are used as massive biological processors and are
employed by the Star Spawn Biolords in the creation of most of their biotechnogical marvels.
Whether they are intelligent in any capacity that would be comprehensible to humans is a matter
for debate. Also unknown is the level to which the Supreme Subdimensional Entity is aware that
portions of its being are being utilized by its subjects in this manner. It is psionically powerful in
the extreme, yet neither communicates nor attacks in this manner.
