Talk:Cthulhu (3.5e Deity)
From D&D Wiki
Sorry. I read the Cthulho mythos, specially Call of Cthulhu, Dagon that directly describe the Old Ones.
Cthulhu isnt like that, in the book Cthulhu does grant spells and have "many" cults around the world. And they doesnt worship Cthulhu becouse they are insane they become insane by doing so.
Cthulhu should grant spells otherwise we have to create two Cthulhus!
This classification is actually fairly retarded for Cthulu yes I know people like the mythos but if you actually go into it the outer gods (aka not cthulu a great old one) would count as over deities. Over deities in my mind go off the concept of being worshipped on multiple worlds (this could be wrong feel free to correct) which also shows cthulu does not qualify for that rating as he is a localized threat not a threat to a galaxy or universe.

- Yog-sothoth.com wiki says "According to Lovecraft and his correspondent Clark Ashton Smith, Cthulhu's parent is the androgynous deity Nagoob." so it's not unreasonable for a DM to want Cthulhu to have a divine rank, even if it's just demi- or lesser. Cults of worshippers also lend support to this. I have changed this from overdeity to lesser. Marasmusine (talk) 01:30, 3 November 2013 (MST)
