Rhan-Tegoth, A 15 foot medusa-like, amphibious god-being (Great Old One) of little power but vital to the return of the Old Ones. It lived in the warm seas of Yuggoth before coming to Earth. 3 million years ago, during the Pliocene epoch, it inhabited an area of Alaska before going into a hibernation like trance. Rhan-Tegoth was the last god to sleep, and probably was meant to be the first to wake. Its body was found by George Rogers and moved to a museum in London during 1926[1], but was then lost track of until It turned up, firstly in Sheffield, UK in the 1980s, and then in America in the 1990s. It was worshipped by the prehuman, cannibal Gnophkehs, but few humans know of It today.</p>

TriviaEdit
