Extended universe sigil

The Xiclotlans are a fictional race created by Chaosium in 1994 for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, which was based on Ramsey Campbell's The Insects from Shaggai.


The Xiclotlans are a carnivorous race of low intellect and great strength, which were enslaved by the insects of Shaggai and were used by them for labor until they left the planet. They are 16 ft tall with six tentacles and a maw at the top. On Xiclotl they are ruled over by the Zy'tl Q'ae, to whom they make periodic sacrifices.
