Beings of Ib first appeared in the story The Doom That Came to Sarnath (H.P. Lovecraft, 1919).
Ib was a city of grey stone which once stood within the land of Mnar by the lake of Thune. Ib's people were strange frog-like beings known as the Thuum-ha. In this city, which had existed for centuries before being discovered by humans, these beings from the moon propitiated Bokrug the water-lizard with curious rituals. The humans living in the nearby city of Sarnath felt uneasy about their neighbors and blamed the disappearance of their children upon them. In the end, Sarnath rose up and slaughtered the amphibians, bringing about their own doom centuries later.
