Call of Cthulhu

plush figure

H.P. Lovecraft wrote his story "The Call of Cthulhu" in 1928 and "Weird Stories" magazine published it. Though mostly unread during Lovecraft's lifetime, all his literature and in particular his so-called "Cthulhu Mythos" influenced generations of fantasy and science fiction writers who followed him. During the 1980s and the peak of role-playing game popularity, Chaosium published "The Call of Cthulhu" role-playing game and many others in that series. The series continues today and remains one of the most popular RPG systems outside of Dungeons & Dragons. It inspired, among many other spin-off artifacts, a soft and cuddly plush toy, representing the evil monster-god Cthulhu himself.
