Eihort - God of the Labyrinth

Eihort lives in a network of tunnels deep beneath the Severn Valley in England. It appears as a "bloated blanched oval supported on myriad fleshless legs" with eyes continuously forming in its gelatinous body. When it captures a mortal, it offers the captive a bargain. If the captive refuses, Eihort smashes the victim to death. If the captive accepts the bargain, the horror implants its immature brood inside the victim's body. The brood will eventually mature and kill the host. According to the Revelations of Glaaki, after the fall of humanity Eihort's brood will be born into light.

- Harms, "Eihort", Encyclopedia Cthulhiana, p. 96

The appearance of the God of the Labyrinth is shamelessly copied from the Egg Apostle from the wonderful manga Berserk by Kentaro Miura. May the Great Old Ones grant him the longevity and vitality required to finish his magnus opus.

Wanna die horribly now, or wanna die even more horribly later? That's the offer.

I noticed Nyarlathotep's absent from the list :O

Eihort & his brood are mentioned in "Cold Print" and some tale in the "Demons by Daylight" Ramsey Campbell anthology in Arkham House. Errol Undercliffe ?

Eihort proposes a bargain that you can not refuse...
