R'lyeh. Sunken city located near 47° 9' S, 126° 43' W in the southern Pacific (though others place it near Ponape, or even off the coast of Massachusetts). Cthulhu and his minions built R'lyeh millions of years before the earliest recorded human history, sallying forth from the city to battle the Elder Things and other alien entities. Then a catastrophe occurred. It could be a particular astronomical configuration, a great cosmic war with the Elder Gods occurred, a secret weapon of the Elder Things, or the creation of the moon. Whatever the reason, R'lyeh sank beneath the waves of the Pacific Ocean, becoming the tomb of Great Cthulhu. Though R'lyeh has sunk deep beneath the Pacific Ocean, there have been times when the city (or at least its highest mountain) breaches the surface of the sea, only to sink down again after a short period of time. At these times, the dreams of Cthulhu have been telepathically broadcast, leading to outbreaks of religious fervor, insanity, and natural disturbances around the world. 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.
