Esoteric Order of Dagon
1.37.1: It was called, she said, "The Esoteric Order of
Dagon", and was undoubtedly a debased, quasi-pagan
thing imported from the East a century before, at a time
when the Innsmouth fisheries seemed to be going barren."
I cannot think of the deep sea without shuddering at the
nameless things that may at this very moment be crawling
and floundering on its slimy bed,
worshipping their ancient stone idols and carving their
own detestable likenesses on submarine obelisks of
water-soaked granite. I dream of a day when
they may rise above the billows to drag down in their
reeking talons the remnants of puny, war-exhausted
mankind—of a day when the land shall sink,
and the dark ocean floor shall ascend amidst universal
pandemonium.”― H.P. Lovecraft 'Dagon'
