Seems like even Lovecraft knew that everthing is better with penguins.
I like this.

Went into a dark and cold cave in the Mountains? 
The Mountains are called the Mountains of Madness?
Giant penguins?
Giant penguins that only eat human flesh?
Giant penguins worship Cthulhu and the other Elder Gods?
Starting to go crazy?
Killed your companions and/or family in the Mountains then returned to kill everyone else?
Suicide?
Conclusion: You got hit with the Crazies!
Symptoms of the crazies include: Madness, shouting at people for no reason, shouting at nothing, screaming at things that are in your head, hearing voices, hallucinations, hunger, homicidal tendencies, eating human flesh, murder, amnesia, dementia, schizophrenia, sickness, rape, and self-mutilation of any kind.
If you experience any of these symptoms then yeah you have the Crazies and possibly every disease known and unknown to man. Want the cure? There is not cure but start worshiping the Elder Gods immediately.

thanks for taking somthing seen as inherently goofy(6ft Blind Albino penguins) by most, and making it feel lovecraftian again.

Great work, the mountains of madness was a great story, maybe the lost city or rats in the walls could be next.

One of my favorite pieces from Lovecraft, you did really well with the penguins. Maybe some shoggots later?
