The L'gy'hxians are a fictional race created by Chaosium in 1994 for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, whom were based on Ramsey Campbell's The Insects of Shaggai.


The L'gy'hxians are a race of metal cuboids whom are 3 ft tall and are very strong and heavy, which live on L'gy'hx (Uranus). They are not a hostile race and once shared their world with the refugee Shans, until they forced them out due to the loathsome rites they practiced in the name of Azathoth. Nyarlathotep is worshiped by them, mutilating themselves in their rites.
