I don't know what you others think of this suggestion but should we consider getting pictures for the character page? Then I would suggest the art by the Japanese artist Mazeran (His art found here, (Only Cthulhu Mythos art here). If I understood the page correctly he allows use as long as he is credited.). For those that don't know, his style and imagination is comparable to Kazuma Kaneko. The only problem I can see with his art is that he has quite an imaginative version of Cthulhu, and Cthylla like in the trope entry is a (at least in one form) human looking girl.

Thanks for suggesting the "Dubut" idea for the Character page. It's a excellent idea, especially considering how hard it is to know where certain character's first appeared. :)

As for the suggestion of images, it would be a good innovation considering how indescribable some of these beings are. The only thing is that the images should try to match up to close to canon as possible.

Well I think most of them matches the canon pretty well but like I said, on a few the artist took a little artistic freedom. Also one problem is that the names are already hard enough as it is re translate them from Japanese is quite hard but here are some I've confirmed. You judge how close you think of them to the canon.

Started a Referenced By page for the mythos: Cthulhu Mythos. Added the Laundry File stuff there.

As the Laundry Files is more of an Alternative Continuity, I instead transferred that to the front page under that trope.

Is there, here or elsewhere, a listing of which specific works constitute "The Mythos?"

Well, not really. Trying to compile a definite biography of the Mythos tales (not including stories tagently related) would be daunting. Even Lovecraft (one of the few writers to be considered the core Mythos) doesn't set all his tales in the Mythos.

But one resource is Daniel Harm's Chulthu Mythos Encyclopedia. He lists an extensive bilbogrpahy of works he use. However, be warned that not all the sources Harm uses is generally a Mythos story. For some reason, Harm included occult texts that really have nothing to with the Mythos. I'd suggest sticking with the Lovecraft Circle writers listed on the Main page.

Franchise/? Really?

I can't see how this would fit. Shouldn't there be a Verse/ namespace for things like this?

I agree. The shift from Literature/ namespace came out of left field, without warning or notice by a user who didn't know the proper protocols. In fact, there was no discussion about the namespace change. I had to re-link the subpages because of this, otherwise they would have been lost.

If anyone's willing, and have the time and know how to properly change it, I wouldn't mind if it was made into a Verse/ namespace.
