The Elder Horrors are powerful beings that slumber in the pits of the Abyss, said to have existed before the world and time itself. They are enormous, inhuman, grotesque beings that consume human souls. Cultists sometimes summon them, offering them human sacrifices to devour. Their purpose and motivations are unknown, although it is often believe they would desire to bring the very Abyss to the realm of the living to rule or destroy it.
