ELDER GODS. Beings opposed to the Great Old Ones. The Elder Gods supposedly live somewhere near Betelgeuse, or in an alternate dimension known as Elysia, or even in a place called the Hourless House in the realm of dreams. At some point in the past, the Great Old Ones, who may have been created as the Elder God's servants or even numbered among them, "rebelled" against the Elder Gods, taking certain documents from the possession of their foes and hiding them in the Great Library of Celaeno or with Ubbo-Sathla. In retribution for this affront, the Elder Gods came to earth and battled the Great Old Ones. This war concluded with the imprisonment of the Great Old Ones and the return of the Elder Gods to their homes. According to myth, the Elder Gods, including Nodens, Kthanid, and Yad-Thaddag, will arise to combat their ancient foes when the stars are right again and the Great Old Ones break free of their prisons. Other Elder Gods mentioned include Adaedu, Alithlai-Tyy, DveahtehsEy-roix, Othkkartho (Nodens' first-born son), Ovytonv, Urthuvn, Xislanyx, Xuthyos-Sihb'Bz, and Zehirete (the Pure and Holy Womb of Light). Very little is known about any of these. Most scholars do not accept this distinction, finding it unconvincing to equate the amoral Great Old Ones with "evil" and to postulate a "good" force opposing them. Some other myths acknowledge the Elder Gods' existence while disagreeing about their nature:- A. The Elder Gods may be the Great Ones, the little gods of Earth which rule the Dreamlands. According to these myths, the Great Ones came into existence during the sleep of the Great Old Ones. Finding the Old Ones in their tombs, the Elder Gods became terrified, sealed the tombs of the evil ones with the Elder Sign, and placed them in the care of Nodens, Lord of the Great Abyss. When Nodens sleeps, then the Great Old Ones will emerge to rule the world. The Great Ones will be powerless to stop this or protect humanity. B. The Elder Gods were the creators of this universe, and made pain and suffering possible. The Great Old Ones hope to destroy the universe, and may make a better one in the aftermath. C. The Elder Gods are the Antarctic Elder Things, who imprisoned the Great Old Ones for unknown reasons. D. The Elder Gods do exist, but are no better in nature than the Great Old Ones; the outcome for humanity will be the same in the end.
