Elder Gods
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
Background races in the Shaver and Lovecraft Mythos. In the latter they were responsible for exiling the Great Old Ones to Earth but rarely appeared themselves. In the [ptui!] former they were an immortal race, some of whom originally inhabited Earth. When Sol began to give off Dis they built the Caves to escape its effects, but, finding these inadequate, migrated, leaving behind their dis-soaked machinery and a few hopeless cases of dis-infection, the Abandondero. They supposedly still exist out in space.
