Antediluvian

I'm very intrigued by Kickstarter for Primeval Thule and have begun brainstorming for a setting, deeply inspired by it (if it's funded it's not due until sometime in 2014).  The setting mines Scottish folklore for inspiration.

Here are some of the denizens of the setting:

Hill Clans of the Hielands.

Islanders of Crannog on Loch Nis (Think Laketown).

Cave People (Dwarves, still working on how to make them distinct).

Moon Folk of Elphame (Drow, who have defiled their lands with Sorcery and now fearing Nyarlathotep's wrath have become nocturnal and live underground where they worship their Spider Goddess, Atlach-Nacha and serve their Queen.  Not going for the traditional pure evil dark elves here, but corruption plagues the males and that is why they are a matriarchal society).

Barbarians of the Wraithneach Moors.

Astromancers of Pnom whose tower is located near Cairn (A place where ancient and alien knowledge is whispered to the faithful by beings who wait beyond the stars).

The Elgr (Druids of the Elk-Goddess, Yhoundeh.  Her husband, Nyarlathotep has taught humanity Sorcery).
