Facing the Faceless
Great Old Ones
Our intrepid band of heroes has discovered only a few of the Great Old Ones. It is unknown whether these are all that exist, or whether untold legions await only the right time to awaken…
The Great Old Ones are entities so inimical to mortal comprehension that the very mention of their true names rends the soul. It is unknown how the few cultists mad enough to repeat the alien mantras survive the invocation.
The party knows of the following Elder Things: Quylthulg’ua, or She of a Thousand Faces, Chernobokhar the Dark Devourer, and (presumably) the White Serpent. There remains also to discover the True Name of the Elder Thing imprisoned within the Ra’ghaz shrine; it is not mentioned in any of the histories, and the one time the party spoke with it, it called itself Ra’ghaz… though it must not have been telling the truth.
