MythosEdit

Tsathoggua first appeared in the story The Tale of Satampra Zeiros (Clark Ashton Smith, 1931).

Tsathoggua is a Great Old One whose amorphous body usually takes the form of a furry toadlike being with sleepy eyes and a toothy grin, or a combination of bat and sloth.

The serpent-men of the "red-litten cavern of Yoth" were the first to worship Tsathoggua. From Yoth its worship spread to K'n-Yan, and thence to the arctic land of Lomar and the outer world.

Tsathoggua is served by his Formless Spawn.[1]
