    I you don't do delayed gratification well, you can find HPL's complete works (free!) online, here:

    For purposes of this thread and tartan, however, what you want first is The Call of Cthulhu:

    If you decide to take the fateful step of reading it, I hope you'll enjoy it; and whether you do enjoy it or not, I hope the blasted remnants of your soul may someday find some semblance of repose.

    Even though I know they won't.

    It occurs to me that this would probably have some cross-denominational utility and could be fine for the devotees of Dagon as well. . .

    Hmmm... Well, maybe we can combine names... (AND have a range of tartans) Just like we have "Ancient" and "Modern" and "Hunting" and "Muted" and so on, we can have:

    Miskatonic University R'lyeh
    Miskatonic University Insane
    Miskatonic University Insane Hunting

    Okay. Now I'm just being silly.

    BONUS: What a completely INSANE tartan might look like:
