Lovecraft DoubtAlright, so this RD will be based on the aftermath of A Colder War by Charles Stross, so enjoy. And yes, it's still Lovecraftian, just set in the Cold War.
"The Middle East? Toast. Europe? Gone. The US? A crater. When the Soviets unleashed that, that thing, we were all done for. It shrugged off our nukes like they were playthings, stopped all communications with NATO, and is slowly killing any pockets of resistance still fighting it and The Soviets. There's nothing we can do about it, we're all stuck here on XK Masada, light years away from the Earth. However, there's someone here, scratch that, something here that was sent by the Soviets to kill Mr. President and the rest of us. Now, it's up to the rest of you to find it and kill it, before it kills you like it did me."
