It Must Be Thursday...Lovecraft Edition.

As great as my love for all things H.P. Lovecraft I am not sure I have the strength of sanity to place this awesome Cthulhu chess game. Look what we have here for playing pieces:
The King pieces are obviously Cthulhu while the Queen is Nyarlathotep.
The Bishop pieces are represented by Father Dagon and Mother Hydra.
The Rooks are none other than Shoggoths.
The Knights are the Hounds of Tindalos.
Lastly but not least...well, yeah I guess they are, we have the Deep Ones as pawns.
Ready to pull out that wallet and secure one of these for your own nefarious nightly chess sessions? Therein lies the rub. This is a handmade personal set by Electix over on the Wet Canvas Forums. Which might be for the best...because whom can truly say that when you move your pieces on this Lovecraftian chessboard that you in turn are not being moved by cosmic forces beyond your comprehension upon theirs?

Yes he/she does! Hopefully someone in the corporate world will sit up and decide to mass produce these based on his/her designs. :)
