Personal History



The Elder Things stand roughly eight feet tall and had the appearance of a huge, oval-shaped barrel with starfish-like appendages at both ends. The top appendage is a head adorned with five eyes, five eating tubes, and a set of cilia for "seeing" without light. The bottom appendage is five-limbed and is used for walking and other forms of locomotion. The beings also have five leathery, fan-like retractable wings and five sets of branching tentacles that sprout from their torsos. Both their tentacles and the slits housing their folded wings are spaced at regular intervals about their bodies.
They come in shades ranging from a purple slate grey to an olive drab green. Their language is an odd, musical piping, which we have not been able to translate, but they seem to understand human speech, regardless of language.
