About Old Gods of Appalachia

Overview
Old Gods of Appalachia is an eldritch horror anthology podcast. Our world, an Alternate Applachia, centers around the concept that the oldest mountains in the world were never meant to be inhabited. Long before anyone lived in these hills, beings of immeasurable darkness and madness were entombed beneath them. In this bygone age when the Appalachians were much grander in size and scope they served as the perfect prison to contain the darkness. As time passed and the walls of the prison wore thin, the Things that slept below began to stir and call to those who would hear them. The outcast and impoverished with nowhere else to go, the frontiersman and the opportunist willing to kill and die for glory or land. They called the richer men and their machines to search and dig. To seek and find, to follow and serve. To shut out outsiders and keep our dark and bloody land for ourselves and our masters.


Alternate Geography
Old Gods is set in an Alternate or Shadow Appalachia. A world eerily similar to the hills and hollers we’ve grown up with but with some noticeable differences. The names of towns and counties will be different. Historical events will be slightly shifted. Our stories will pass through hundreds of years of this Appalachia’s history. To link our story to actual Appalachia, the center of many of these first stories will be based on actual disasters that have occured in the region but these events will also have been changed, composited and altered on this side of the veil. No real names will be used for private individuals who might have been part of the real life inspirations for our stories. Any resemblence to actual persons is purely coincidental or the will of darker forces that we do not understand.
