Alister’s new reality TV series was a hit, but when the crew started catching Cthulhu’s minions and the great old one awoke, the young man had a choice to make.

He could try to make it right and hope the god went back to sleep, or he could film the mayhem, gain glory through ratings and hope at the end of the first season there would be enough world left to cash in on his success.

    The only thing usefull as a bait for the demons of the abyss was a creature from the great abyss itself. They only hoped they caught something they could handle.

  2. Alister soon realized that by keeping the minions captive in the hull of his ship that Cthulhu would not harm him, but in fact would do his bidding via a psychic connection the two had formed. The two went on the wreak havoc on the high seas grabbing ratings for his show higher than the final episode of MASH. Due to their outrageous success they were able to buy out the Disney Corporation, and created a mega-popular animated series starring Cthulhu that spawned several spin offs and a highly successful line of plush toys. A year later Alister and Cthulhu were married in the first ever man/sea-beast union that was only recognized in Maryland and California.
