SHUDDE-M'ELL. Great Old One and leader of the cthonians. Shudde-M'ell appears as a huge cthonian and spends most of its time under the ground. At one time, a large number of Elder Signs imprisoned Shudde-M'ell beneath G'harne, but natural disasters and human theft of the warding-stones eventually freed him. The Great Old One still returns to the ruined city once every twenty-three years, to meet with its children. In Hyborian times, the priests of Stygia revered Shudde-M'ell under the name Shuddam-El. It is believed that his worship later traveled to Egypt, where it inspired the myths of the serpent Apophis. His worship by the builders of the prehistoric megaliths of England and some particularly decadent shamans of America's Pacific Coast has been well documented. Today only the Jidhauas of Mongolia and possibly some African tribes near the site of G'harne revere Shudde-M'ell. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
