Life on Earth

Served by their slaves, the Shoggoths, huge tentacled lumps or blobs (later known as Tekeli-li), the Old Ones built a gigantic city in what was known during the Hyborian Age as the Mountains of Madness, in Leng.

When Conan, Bêlit and the Black Corsairs were in hiding from Ghomli, on the isle with local princess Ta-No, they were captured by Ta-No's tribesmen, and discovered during their brief time there carvings, as well as a perfectly conserved specimen. They were then attacked by a live Shoggoth, but managed to wound or kill it and flee out.[1]
