Dialogue[edit | edit source]

I was a scholar vizier to a king of ophir

A royal commission and a round belly

Nevermind my past. Calamity put me on the road, and I lost all things in these Exiled Lands.

I wandered north past fertile highlands

Past frozen slopes all the way to the caldera of the volcano

Its time-gnawed ruins piqued my curiosity

Here I found the Well

Here I founded my cult

And here I remain until I puzzle out the secret to escaping this prison.


When I realized the voices in the well were the key to earthly salvation,

I cast off my earthly possessions

I shed my old life like an old skin

I recruited followers. The devout became the Votaries of Skelos

Amid cyclopean ruins we live and study

Every night we march in a line, robe-cloaked and torch-bearing

Every night, we cast our offerings into the well

We listen

Only I have glimpse the book of skelos

Only my tongue knows the forked past

Only i can translate the hissing whispers in the dark

The voices in the well enlighten

Someday soon I will puzzle out their riddles and escape these Exiled Lands


At the volcano’s heart I found a well

Down it extended, down into darkness infinite

All through the night I sat by the well

I heard sibilant voices from below. Such voices!

They crooned in the dim tongues

I half-remembered from my glimpse into the Book of Skelos so many years ago

But an unprepared pilgrim must never approach the well

Its nighted cadence would flay your soul

A pilgrim understands, yes?

Only the worthy of Skelos may approach the well

But for a courteous pilgrim, I could serve as intermediary


In my youth, I happened upon a BoS

The tome sought after by many and many a sorcerer

In its pages I glimpsed the nameless sagas

I sounded the grim grammar that enslaves the elements

Occasions the dead to rise

And summons demons from the outer dark

In its pages, I spied the graveyard of the universe

Through the gulfs of space and wells of night.

In its pages I gazed into the pits of Arallu

In its verses I saw the Chaos that Crawls.

I enunciated a single syllable of the True name of Tsathoggua!
