The crew of that ship decided unanimously to destroy the parchment. They hoped that destroying it would eradicate their nightmares. However, the worse was bound to happen. They carried the parchment to the inn cautiously, hurried behind the inn and looked for dry wood. They separated and searched he terrain. About half an hour later, they returned to the spot and built a small bonfire; and then, they tossed the parchment into the fire. Instead of merely a burning manuscript, the air was filled with loud, painful screams. In the midst of burning the parchment, mysteriously the faces of Andrew Carlyle and two other mates caught fire and they suffered disfigurement and blindness. The unaffected mates gasped. The parchment jumped animatedly from the fire and landed in Carlyle's lap, setting his body ablaze.
They tried to seize the document and throw it into the fire again but it burned one mate's hands. He yelped in agony. Then, it suddenly vanished in sm

The following night,however,the first mate had a stranger dream than the last. He was still in R'yleh but searching frantically for a way out. He turned and ran in every possible direction but he discovered that they ended in a dead end. The terrain and structures at each end were strange and foreboding to him. But as soon as he looked back over his shoulder, he discovered that the monsters were trailing him. They seemed to hunt him. He panicked. They loomed steadily closer to his spot. Yet no sooner had they closed in on him then he awoke. He screamed and the others heard him and hurried to his bedside.
"Andrew, what's the matter now?" one asked him.
"Those horrible things are tracking me!"
"They followed me in the dream and almost caught me!"
The others shok their heads and tried to think of ways to stop Carlyle from dreaming. However like that first night they all eventually suffered exhaustion and fell asleep. That night, around the hour

Do dead souls dream? Do living souls dream of the dead?
Worse, do they dream the same dream?
Of ships that sailed the Arctic or Antarctic, that reached eventually the island source of the dreaded cult, few ever return to port. In my lifetime, as I resided near Providence, Rhode Island, one ship with a total crew of 5 men managed to return to port. The crew lodged at a local inn for a few nights, and tried desperately to forget what they found. They played games, sang tunes, exchanged tales of other experiences. Afraid to dream, they took pills to keep awake. Eventually, though, they fell asleep from simple exhaustion. Near the wee hours of morning, the first mate, Andrew Carlyle tossed and turned in his bed. His fellows herd faint cries of a name or names never heard or known before: Cthulhu, Dagon, R'yleh.
The next morning, after first mate Carlyle awoke, they asked him about those names. He explained grimly that he had lain sleep
Eyes Have MeEyes Have Me
The hours till daybreak crawl slowly by;
I lie in my bed and I try to sleep.
Something keeps me awake;
I scarcely know why.
It seems that something slowly, surely creeps.
I have that feeling, long and deep,
That eyes are upon me.
I am cemented to where I lie;
I fail to rise, although I try;
Yet I still breathe and I do not die.
Still, I cannot break free.
These are rules for submitions. While everyone of you is free to join the group, you´ll have to make sure your submissions follow this guideline. Otherwise it can´t be accepted or will be deleted afterwards.
1. Every submition has to have a visible reference to the Cthulhu Mythos.
(This reference can be set in the title, the image itself or by a more detailed comment. If it lacks enough information about the reference it could be deleted or won´t be accepted.)
2. Every submition has to be put in the correct folder by the artist itself.
(You´re free to draw, take photos, craft something or whatever you´re good in. Since almost every folder is open to submition it´s hard for me to find and replace art. So, please make sure your pictures go to the right folder!)
3. NO(!!!) submition may contain any illegal content!
(It went really great so far concerning this point, so let´s keep it like that! Nice and peaceful. Otherwise members get banned for eternity.)
((4)) Face my arbitraryness!
(this is important. often I tend to delete works because I believe they are somehow inappropriate for the group´s sake. This could happen to artworks with too much nudity or that lack any skill at all. And this is GOING TO happen to artworks that break ANY of the rules above!)
I´m always there for improvement! Do you think an artwork doesn´t meet the group´s requirements? Is there someone breaking the rules and need to be banned? I accidently allowed an inappropriate picture?
whatever your reason: don´t hesitate to write a comment, send me a personal note or contact me so I can do something!
