Default Re: DF Implied Cosmology

I always envisioned Elder Things as the true nature of reality. Maybe when the gods made creation Elder Things were part of the primordial soup that formed creation. I always got the feeling that people who dealt with Elder Things thought they were magical or spiritual beings who would do favors them and be rewarded like a god would reward worshippers. But the truth was that Elder Things were mundane and banal and the worshippers are like rats hoping to appease a cat. It all ends in tragedy. The Elder Things don't care about souls or good or evil, they just want to eat or experiment and have no grander plans for humanity than that. It is just that they are extradimensional and beyond human comprehension that humanity ascribes them magical or Divine powers.
