Description

We live in an cruel and incomprehensible world in which unthinkable forces toy with us like helpless pawns. Time to turn the tables!

This set of thirty-two chess pieces, each one unique and hand-made, let's you do just that. Blasphemous horrors, mind-shattering monstrosities, Lovecraftian beasties, you can move them all around at your own whim, just as though you were something other than a doomed revenant, stumbling through the horrid maze of an alien cosmos. One side is a ghastly red, as if stained by centuries of blood sacrifice. The other is a murky, pale copper hue, like an ancient bone.

Since selling a few hand-made Lovecraftian chess sets in the past, I decided to try to stream-line the production a bit, and make them more affordable. I've been partially successful. Rather than making every piece entirely by hand, I've now sculpted a meta-set of pieces, made molds of them, cast them in plaster, and tinted them.

This means that every piece in every set is a unique object, but more or less reproducible. There are variants of all the pieces, and you could, if you liked, and the stars are right, design a set from the templates I offer, choosing design elements, colours (out of space extra), and the like. Like the shop and visit often, so you'll see new versions as they erupt into this dimension.

The pieces are offered without a board. They are sized in keeping with tournament standards.
