Origins

The star-headed, barrel-like bodied, winged an tentacled Old Ones came from the stars, down to Earth, and either folded up or lost their wings.[1]

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.

Those Old Ones seemingly lost of their skill at the time they built a second city nearby.

Eventually, the Shoggoths killed their masters.[1]

Hyborian Age

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]

Miscellaneous
