NYOGTHA (also the THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE). Great Old One spawned of Tsathoggua or Ubbo-Sathla which appears as a dark amorphous mass. It possesses vampiric characteristics, feeding off the souls of those with whom it comes into contact. Nyogtha dwells deep beneath the earth in the caverns of Yoth, or possibly within a dark world circling Arcturus. It can only manifest itself through certain openings to the upper world. Such openings have been found in Massachusetts, Syria, Tartary, Romania, New Zealand and the Plateau of Leng, but they undoubtedly exist in other places as yet undiscovered. Nyogtha is not thought to have an active cult, though solitary sorcerers invoke it to gain personal power. It has been connected with at least one of the witches executed in the Salem witch-trials, and there have been other instances of worship scattered worldwide. Some cults associated with ghouls also serve Nyogtha. The Thing that Should Not Be may be summoned at the entrance of a cavern leading to its home. One theory about Nyogtha suggests that Nyogtha possesses a link to the Elder Things. Nyogtha appealed to these aliens to aid its growth, and the Elder Things agreed, hoping to control it. However, as they had feared, Nyogtha began to break away from their control. In response, they constructed a huge magical shield that kept Nyogtha imprisoned in a cavern on his native New Zealand, unable to reach his full maturity. This theory does not explain how Nyogtha has manifested itself elsewhere in the world. No matter what his nature, Nyogtha is relatively easy to drive off. Use of an ankh, the Vach-Viraj chant, or the Tikkoun Elixir will cause Nyogtha to return to the caverns from whence it came. Since these three items are all connected with life and purity, it may be that other chants or items with the same connections might be useful as well. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations.
