No, some of us are just really picky.

I can imagine Nyarlathotep appearing and people from BRP Central criticising because it is the wrong colour, is spelled wrong or some other thing, completely missing the point of a Great old One suddenly appearing.

The Great Old Ones are proofreaders at the Chaosium?

Not for a while yet, that one would be a prequel anyway. My current book however is probably 2 or three years away from publishing, and there will still be plenty of monsters to see then.
