Art, Artifact & Story - All in One

In 1921 Professor Nathaniel Ward traveled to the Caroline Islands in the South Pacific. There he witnessed a band of islanders on a remote atoll summon terrible creatures from the ocean by throwing stones marked with strange petroglyphs into the sea. He took a set of the stones and sent them to his friend Charlie Tower for safekeeping.

Our set of Deep One Summoning Stones recreates the package Ward sent from Manila to his friend in New York. Open the authentic vintage packaging from Ward's hotel and read his sixteen page hand-written letter describing his adventure on the island, with four additional pages of drawings. Cut open the cloth pouch and see for yourself the engraved ceremonial stones which the islanders used to summon creatures from the deep. Will you be able to keep them safe if the Deep Ones come and want them back?

The Deep One Summoning Stones is a story experienced through completely realistic props. Put yourself in the shoes of a 1920s mythos investigator, opening a package from a remote corner of the world, reading the harrowing tale. The packaging authentically recreates a mailed shipment from the Philippines to New York. The letter, on vintage-style airmail stationery, recounts a thoroughly Lovecraftian adventure story. The drawings, by noted creature illustrator Darrell Tutchton, add to the atmosphere and realism. The cloth pouch contains a set of five stones etched (not painted or drawn on) with occult glyphs. Exploring this product is like living through a Lovecraft story from the comfort of your living room (or padded cell).

It's a story! It's a game! It's a treat for LARP gamers, collectors or H.P. Lovecraft fan.

Great prop, thanks

Bought this and I’m totally thrilled, great quality and well devised.

A Fantastic Experience!

This is a wonderful short story that you become a part of from the moment that you open the first letter. The authentic look, feel (and smell) of all the items means that you are fully immersed in what is happening. The first hand sense of forbidden discovery makes this a truly fantastic experience. One of my favourite Lovecraftian experiences to date and another outstanding offering by the HPLHS. Well worth the price. The monetary price that is...I cannot vouch for the cost to your sanity of such forbidden knowledge.

So damn immersive.

Absolutely in love with this. The strange smell, the story that comes along with it and then the stones all really tie it together to let your imagination take you outta this reality. It would be five star if the writing was readable though.

What a great prop!

I received this and was amazed by the amount of thought and energy put behind the summoning stones, everything about this seems so authentic that I almost am sure I can summon the deep ones myself. The story that goes with these stones is amazingly well written and is fun to indulge in!

Ichthyic Insanity!

This product is really much more than a prop or a story - it's an experience. I thought the other reviewers were kidding about the package's fishy smell, but they certainly were not. I shudder to think how HPLHS or their shipping shoggoths produced such an olfactory addition... but they did. Everything from the charcoal drawings ripped out of a notebook, to the frantically-written 16-page letter, to the note from the estate agency telling you that your inheritance is untaxable - it really serves to immerse you in a Lovecraftian tale. I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase!
