Episode 285: Call of Cthulhu Deities -- Shudde M’ell, Yibb-Tstll and Bugg-Shash

We’re back and we’re suckling. This is more difficult than you might think, at least when Yibb-Tstll is involved. Even once we get past all those pesky nightgaunts, there’s the whole, um, moving target aspect to deal with. And the less said about that snog with Bugg-Shash, the better. Maybe we’ll just stick with Shudde-M’ell. At least he knows how to make the earth move.

Main Topic: Call of Cthulhu Deities — Shudde M’ell, Yibb-Tstll and Bugg-Shash

This episode is our latest exploration of the deities of the Cthulhu Mythos. We have devoted previous episodes to DagonShub-NiggurathYog-SothothNyarlathotepHasturAzathothNodensUbbo-Sathla and MordiggianIthaquaCthulhuDaoloth and EihortGla’akiY’golonacTsathoggua, Atlach-Nacha and Abhoth, Cyäegha and Byatis, and Yig and Ghatanothoa.

Here, we’re turning to the creations of Brian Lumley, specifically the gods Shudde M’ell, Yibb-Tstll and Bugg-Shash. As usual, we discuss their origins in fiction, how they’ve been developed in the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and how we might use them in our own games.

We planned this episode some time back, before we heard that Brian Lumley had died. Learning the news not too long before recording means that the episode might be less irreverent than you’d expect.

Things we mention in this episode include:

The Burrowers Beneath by Brian Lumley
