|Call of the Wild|
The most horrifying thing about this massive, amorphous, many-limbed monstrosity is the half-human face that moans atop it.
Dunwich Horror is a Monster that appears in the Mansions of Madness First Edition Call of the Wild and Mansions of Madness Second Edition Suppressed Memories, and an Epic Monster that appears in the Eldritch Horror Core Set.
The Dunwich Horror first appeared in the story The Dunwich Horror (H.P. Lovecraft, 1928).
During the late summer of 1928, a strange calamity occurred which has since been dubbed "the Dunwich Horror". On August 3, a Dunwich resident named Wilbur Whateley, noted by his neighbors for his magical delvings and unnatural size, was killed while trying to obtain the Necronomicon from the Miskatonic University library. A month later, the horror began in Dunwich. A mysterious blast destroyed Wilbur Whateley’s unoccupied house, and tales of the disappearances of cattle and people began to filter out of the township. When Henry Armitage, Miskatonic University’s librarian and a long-time correspondent of Whateley, heard of what was occurring in Dunwich, he set out for Dunwich along with Professors Rice and Morgan. On September 15, they performed an exorcism on Sentinel Hill, bringing the horror to an end. Following these events, all of the signs to Dunwich were torn down, and the town was nearly forgotten.
