“Sleeping in the sunken city of R’lyeh, Cthuhlu is said to lay dreaming until the stars are right. At that time R’lyeh will rise and he will awaken.
“At the proper time, the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from his tomb to revive his subjects and resume his rule of earth... Then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and reveling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.”
– The Call of Cthulhu, H. P. Lovecraft
