An online field guide to Cthulhu Mythos monsters
How can you distinguish a Flying Polyp from the Earthly manifestation of Azathoth? Sandy Petersen has thought about these things in great detail for Chaosium Inc., which led to the creation of S. Petersen's Guide to Cthulhu Monsters. You should of course buy the book (that link will take you to Amazon) but if you want a taste of the guide online, Monster Brains has quite a few excerpt pages that will explain the differences between Elder Things and Dimensional Shamblers. Enjoy!
