It is inevitable that as our knowledge increases and we explore the last frontiers of our world we will glimpse terrible truths. We were never alone in the universe. In fact, we are not this planet's dominant species. Here among us, there be dragons. There are fools who will worship such unspeakable entities as gods in hopes of gaining power over their fellow men. Some of these disciples, in their insanity, will seek to release their dark masters upon our unsuspecting world. Yet there is room hope in these times of darkness. As we steadfast men and women of science, learning, and faith stumble upon the truth, some of us will choose to fight the darkness. These brave and lonely investigators of things-that-should-not-be must remain ever vigilant. Searching for evidence of these horrible beings and their mortal followers. Once we find them, we must stop them by any means necessary. Should we fail in our duty, we will at least go down fighting for the greater good. -From the memoirs of R. L. Cullinan. The Great Old Ones ruled the Earth aeons before the incidental rise of man. They came from the gulfs of space, waged war upon one another, and then were cast down by even greater beings. Remains of their cyclopedia, cities and forbidden knowledge can still be found in the remote extremes of our planet. Upon uncharted islands, within dark ocean depths, under burning desert sands, locked within polar ice, miles below the Earth's crust, they lay imprisoned. But when the Stars are right they will awaken and walk this earth once more.
