VATICAN CODEX. Mayan document found several years ago in the Vatican Library. It is on a piece of bark paper eight inches wide and seven feet long, painted with various colors. This is the only known copy of this work, one of the few Mayan books to have survived the ecclesiastical zeal of the Spanish priests. Why the religious authorities chose this book to spare from destruction and send back to Rome is unknown. In most respects, this document parallels the Mayan creation myths as detailed in the Popol Vuh. At one point, however, the story varies from the more common version. A being known as both Ghatanothoa and Yig comes down to Earth from the star Arcturus. Seeing the goddess of the dawn bathing, he attempts to force himself upon her, but she escapes. Yig's semen falls into the sea, eventually giving rise to the various animals that populate the earth. The Ancient Ones (as the benevolent gods are called in this document) attack Yig and imprison him within the ground. Having done so, they take some of his seed and use it to create humanity. Then a Golden Age begins, ending when Yig calls down disaster upon humanity. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, devils, angels, monsters and fey folk, creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
