SHINING TRAPEZOHEDRON. Artifact used in the worship of the Haunter of the Dark avatar of Nyarlathotep. The Shining Trapezohedron antedates most earthly life. A species of crustaceans that predated the mi-go created the artifact and brought it to earth. After a great war, the Elder Things destroyed its original owners and placed the Trapezohedron in a box of their own design, using its power to destroy the shoggoths during the rebellion. The serpent people brought it to Valusia, where they learned the secrets of illusion from it before one of that race bore it away to Lemuria to escape the constant infighting over the object. After some time on Lemuria, it came back to Atlantis in the keeping of King Kull, who used its power for his own ends but later cast it into the ocean. A Minoan fisherman found the artifact in his nets and sold it to the pharaoh Nephren-Ka, who kept it in the labyrinths of Kish, where Nitocris later found and used it. The Trapezohedron remained at Kish until 1844, when Professor Enoch Bowen's archaeological dig unearthed it. The professor bore it back to his home in Providence, Rhode Island, where it became the sacred object of the Starry Wisdom cult. Following the cult's dissolution in 1877, the Trapezohedron remained in the deserted Starry Wisdom church until 1935, when events connected with its disturbance prompted a local doctor to bear the artifact away and cast it into Narraganset Bay. It is believed that someday the Trapezohedron will be brought out of the waters and form the focus for a new Starry Wisdom cult. The Trapezohedron may be used in many ways. It serves as a window in which one may gaze on all time and space. If someone gazes at the Trapezohedron for any length of time and then plunges the item into darkness, Nyarlathotep's Haunter of the Dark aspect will manifest itself nearby. It maintains a link with the gazer, seeking to possess his or her body and thereby remain in our world. The Trapezohedron's last power is to accelerate any bodily metamorphosis, such as Deep One transformation which may be taking place in its viewer. Some have connected the Shining Trapezohedron with the magical stone known to alchemists as "Azoth", Doctor John Dee's shewstone through which he communicated with the angels, and the curious angles found in many haunted houses and temples.
