It would have been less uncomfortable if the stray accounts of these things had not agreed so well. As it was, nearly all the rumours had several points in common; averring that the creatures were a sort of huge, light-red crab with many pairs of legs and with two great bat-like wings in the middle of the back. They sometimes walked on all their legs, and sometimes on the hindmost pair only, using the others to convey large objects of indeterminate nature. On one occasion they were spied in considerable numbers, a detachment of them wading along a shallow woodland watercourse three abreast in evidently disciplined formation. Once a specimen was seen flying—launching itself from the top of a bald, lonely hill at night and vanishing in the sky after its great flapping wings had been silhouetted an instant against the full moon.

The Mi-go are an extraterrestrial species from the planet Yuggoth that had originally landed on earth and waged war on the Elder Things millions of years prior. However, it is revealed that they originally came from another space-time continuum. They are described as winged creatures with large claws and heads covered in antennae.

The Mi-go are a scientifically and technologically advanced race, having a particularly sophisticated grasp of surgical techniques and neuroscience. A notable aspect of this is when they remove another lifeform's brain and use machines connected to the organ to send the creature's consciousness across time and space.

Weaknesses: While they can effortlessly fly through space at speeds much faster than light, their wings do not work as well in atmospheres similar to that of Earth's. It is unknown exactly how much this hinders their movement. Light weakens and confuses them.

    • Done. I think this can be closed. I plan to revise most of the aliens and creatures but that can wait until after the forum move.
    • I will close the thread.
