My favorite deity in Dungeons & Dragons, Cthulhu, is found in the first edition Deities & Demigods. I received as a hand me down gift - along with the PHB, DMG, & MM - from my Uncle David when he got out of the hobby. I fondly recall flipping through the pages of D&DG and stopping to read further information every time something caught my eye. The entire Cthulhu Mythos was definitely eye-catching! Many of the names were nearly incomprehensible for an 8 year old child to pronounce and the illustrations were very appropriate for the listings. Even though the products of today may look more polished or professional, nothing can beat the old dusty tome feeling of cracking open a first edition AD&D hardback.
