I like my kickstarter threads with a bit more meat to the OP.



From the Kickstarter description:

What is Slumbering Oblivion? In its current form, Slumbering Oblivion is a new line of miniatures influenced by the works of HP Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos. The future will be a fully realized tabletop war game where you can pit the minions of Cthulhu against the advanced warriors of humanity fighting for the survival of Earth and mankind.

Premise

The general premise of Slumbering Oblivion is that late in the 21st century mankind's search of the oceans for wealth led to the accidental discovery of R'lyeh. This caused the denizens of that, and other underwater cities, to burst forth and wage war on humanity. The timeline of the game itself takes place about 100 years after this, where Earth is a battlefield locked in a perpetual clouded darkness. The remainder of mankind is either barricaded in cities deep inland or on crowded lunar colonies. 

For the first time in history, mankind is united as one. Ironically, it was not peace that what unify mankind but war. This unification of purpose and science has led to tremendous leaps in technology to fight against the forces of Cthulhu. However, this may have come too late. For while Cthulhu still sleeps, his forces fight with advanced technology, psychic abilities and even tooth, claw and tentacle. And should he awaken, any remaining hope will be lost.
