We have yet to play, but picked our provinces in advance. I got the pale green faction, so want to run a Cthulhu theme. Unfortunately I haven't read Call of Cthulhu or have more than passing familiarity with the trope, so curious if those who are more steeped in Lovecraftian horror (all I've read so far is rats in the walls!) could suggest some naming ideas.

To my knowledge you get to name:
Province
Leader
2 ships
An island or three
A bevy of advisors
And a catchall for anything else I might get to name

Thanks for any help, your creativity will help breathe life into my table

R'lyeh is the obvious choice for an island name.

I might names my ships Ftaghn and Squamous

Province? Dunwich. (Arkham is also popular but it just doesnt have the same ring and the uninitiated associate it with Batman)

P.S. You can read Call of Cthulhu free online. Though while the best known Lovecraft srory, it may not be the best example. Try the Dunwich Horror maybe. Or the Shadow Over Innsmouth (another possible name)

P.P.S. Rats in the Wall was my favorite!
