All things about CSTW.


For countless ages, that unthinkable being known as Cthulhu has lain dormant in his city underwater city of R'lyeh. Cthulhu - a being so terrible that his mere presence is enough to drive mere mortals insane.

Cthulhu sleeps while the world above goes on, oblivious to his presence.

Until tonight...

Awaken, great Cthulhu.

As Cthulhu emerged from the bay, the world seemed doomed indeed.

But wait! What's that!?

A brave and mysterious stranger has appeared from high atop yonder cliff! Using a strange holy power, the mysterious stranger has sealed away Cthulhu's horrible power!

His power drained, Cthulhu washes up on the neighboring shore, defeated and dejected.

Cthulhu "Gaaah! After waiting all this time, to have victory snatched from my grasp by a mere mysterious man is highly frustrating! I must get my powers back! But how?"

Luckily for the world, Cthulhu didn't know the one and only way to break the curse and regain his powers. In order to break the curse and regain his powers, he would have to do the unthinkable. He would have to become a true hero. Only by becoming a true hero would his powers return to him. And thus, a most unlikely hero was born.
