Though I suppose "creative license" works.
Well, I didn't want to have it be impossible for PC's to use them. Some of them do have a pretty high price to pay - Yog-Sothoth will run you out of Wisdom pretty fast, and Hastur, if you bind him the cheap way, basically has free run of your body. I tried to get their influences sufficiently Lovecraftian - Cthulhu drives you mad, Nyarlathotep makes you a manipulative, evil trickster, Shub-Niggurath drains you of your will to act, and so on.
