  LROGG (NYARLATHOTEP)
"They themselves were worshippers of the relatively insignificant deity Lrogg, which conferred benefits on its worshippers and demanded only annual sacrifice, in the shape of the removal of the legs of a conscious native." 

"This double revelation came when a particularly fervent group of native Azathoth-worshippers violated a temple, smashing all the statues of the two-headed bat-deity Lrogg and killing three of the priests. After acid had been poured into the brains of the offenders, the chief priests of Lrogg declared that the temple of Azathoth must be removed altogether from the planet, together with its insect-worshippers, although the insects who would conform to the planetary religion might remain if they wished. The cuboid natives who had become believers in the creed of Azathoth were all treated in the same way as the original offenders, as an example."
Ramsey Campbell, The Insects From Shaggai 

"This avatar of Nyarlathotep is closely connected to the Haunter Of the Dark. Lrogg is a double-headed bat creature composed of living, icy blackness. The bat-god has countless star-like eyes that twinkle and move about on its two faces, and each head has several fanged mouths."

THE FLOATING HORROR (NYARLATHOTEP)
"The body was peeling away, cracking open like a pod, droozing a quivering cheezy bladder-the delirious, gelatious body of Nyarlathotep."
 
"It was massive. by some abominable fusion, it swelled to twice the size of the body it hatched from. Its surface was covered with something sticky, a black sap, bubbling, running off at the sides, carrying with it beds of pearls, shiny curdled clods of milk, thick clusters of eggs.”

"Rapf couldn’t take his eyes off the thing. It was hovering a few meters off the ground, its jelly sac bloated with webs of blue-pulsing veins. Tendrils, lion-red, flayed open around mouthlike gaping seams that writhed below the bulbed body. The tentacles were pushing it off, in o the air, and it was lifting, its hideous rippled hulk was raising up over the puddling mess of its cocoon. "

GOD OF THE BLOODY TONGUE (NYARLATHOTEP)
"To satisfy the god, the cult abducts villagers and sacrifices them. Then the god appears in all his terrible glory. He is nearly as tall as the mountain itself. He has no face; only a blood-red tongue hangs down from where the top of his head would be. The mere sight of this hideous god can drive men mad."Larry DiTillio & Lynn Willis, Masks Of Nyarlathotep

AHTU (NYARLATHOTEP)
“Their god isn’t new, it isn’t new at all. Back when the world was fresh and steaming and the reptiles flew above the swamps, it wasn’t new either. The Bakongo name for it is Ahtu. Alhazred called it Nyarlathotep when he wrote twelve hundred years ago.” 

“Pulsing, rising, higher already than the giants of the forest ringing it, the fifty-foot-thick column of what had been earth dominated the night. A spear of false lightning jabbed and glanced off, freezing the chaos below for the eyes of any watchers. From the base of the main neck had sprouted a ring of tendrils, ruddy and golden and glittering over all with inclusions of quartz. They snaked among the combatants as flexible as silk; when they closed, they ground together like millstones and spattered blood a dozen yards up the sides of the central column. The tendrils made no distinction between Forest Guards and the others who had danced for Ahtu.” "The black column that was Ahtu twisted hugely, a cobra pinned to a bonfire. There was no heat, but the light itself seared the eyes and made bare flesh crawl."
David Drake, Than Curse the Darkness

Hey folks, as my first post of 2014 I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone that made last year so awesome! All the regular “subscribers” who buy every Volume, all the people that bought the Collection, all the folks that just purchase one Volume or even a patch or sticker, you’re all awesome and make doing this worthwhile. 
I also want to thank everyone that’s shared my work on Tumblr or Instagram or shared my Etsy store. I’ll keep making monsters as long as you keep liking them!
 Speaking of which, my Etsy store is up and running and you can grab the VERY LAST COPIES OF VOLUME III as well as a handful of stuff like prints, posters, patches and stickers. These individual Volumes WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED AGAIN!
Volumes I, II & IV have sold out! There are ONLY 3 copies of the regular version of Volume III and 2 copies of the Providence Edition of Volume III left.
As far as monster news, I wanted to let everyone know that my first monster post of 2014 will be on Monday, January 13th. It will be a full week of monsters and not just any monsters. It’s a FULL WEEK OF NYARLATHOTEP!!!! From more well known avatars to some really, really weird, obscure ones! 
I’m also working with Jason McKittrick on a super secret project that may or may not have something to do with Collection II! 
I’m also working on getting Volume VII & VIII ready for print!! Enjoy the new year!!!
