Summary::Unfathomable beings of human and pseudonatural descent, with slight morphic powers.


A cthulhoid lives in a highly structured daily schedule, with much time set aside for meditation and study. They are so obsessive in their daily lives that even dwarves and dragons can be unnerved by their focus. They do not relate well to strangers, although their capacity for loyalty is as strong as that possessed by any other race.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Cthulhoids look much like the humans their ancestors once were, apart from their grayish skin, dusty hair, and rather metallic eyes. Of course, this resemblance ends once they sprout tentacles and their eyes become black pools.


Cthulhoids do not care much for other races, but lack any real hostility towards them. Other races, once aware of the cthulhoids' heritage, typically are hostile towards them.


In spite of their menacing demeanor and the reputation of pseudonatural beings in general, cthulhoids are generally neutral in alignment, although the best and the worst may be found amongst them. Cthulhoids of good alignment are rare, but those of evil alignment are almost unheard of. Their obsessiveness often lends them a lawful bent, although chaotic individuals are not unheard of.


Cthulhoids like to live underground or in large cities. Their physical resemblance to humans means that they are most often found in the lands of their distant cousins.


Most Cthulhoids pay homage to the ancient beings which created them from human cultists long ago. Clerics have access to the Knowledge, Madness, Magic, and Trickery domains.


Cthuloids speak Undercommon and Common. Most speak a third language, such as Draconic, thanks to their high intelligence scores.


Cthuloids typically go by nicknames and by aliases that they find interesting or pleasant. They have three true names, a child name, an adult name, and a family name, which are shared only with those that they absolutely trust. It is considered a betrayal worthy of death to reveal a true name in cthulhoid culture.
