Cthulhu Thursday: 1st December, and the Stars are Right for #Cthulhumas!

December 1, 2011

Today is the 1st December and our Cthulhu Christmas Calendar opens today!

It’s the first of December!  If you’ve got your Cthulhu Christmas Calendar (if not get yours here) then today is the first day it opens (unless you cheated?).

The first image is one we’ve put out with the launch of the app:

“That is not baked which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even pudding may die.”

And the question for this image is:

In the yummy pudding are coins to pay for the bus to Innsmouth, how much is that?
– 60 cents
– 45 cents
– 20 cents

I’m not going to give you the answer, but I will hint. (Look away now if you don’t want to know!) The answer lies in the classic story The Shadow Over Innsmouth

I was sorry when I saw there would be no other passengers on the bus. Somehow I did not like the idea of riding alone with this driver. But as leaving time obviously approached I conquered my qualms and followed the man aboard, extending him a dollar bill and murmuring the single word “Innsmouth.” He looked curiously at me for a second as he returned forty cents change without speaking. I took a seat far behind him, but on the same side of the bus, since I wished to watch the shore during the journey.

Best of luck…

Indeed.

(Cthulhu Thursday is a dose of Mythos to brighten darken your week. More on the idea can be found here and a list of posts thus far, here. Also for more Cthulhu news, sign up to the cthulhuHQ twitter feed. Enjoy!)
