Extended universe sigil

The Children of Abhoth are a fictional race created by Chaosium in 1995 for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, which were based on Clark Ashton Smith's The Seven Geases.


The Children of Abhoth are the creatures which sloughed off the Outer God's bulk. No two offspring are alike and each one is a complex lifee form. Which may look like prehistoric creatures, singular body parts, weird humanoids, monstrous mutants, unfinished bodies, amorphous blobs, and so on. They may fly, crawl, swim, run, or be immobile. Some of them are re-absorbed by Abhoth and some escape into the world. Most of them are simple-minded, reacting and acting on impulse and a few tend to the needs of Abhoth.
