Something From My CoC Campaign

Everybody who plays the Call of Cthulhu RPG from Chaosium knows that Yog-Sothoth is one of "the cryptic Old ones". These "Old Ones" (not to be confused with the mythos race of the same name or the Great Old Ones such as Cthulhu, Hastur, etc.) seem to be a shadowy subset of the Outer Gods. Except for Yog-Sothoth, not much seems to be known about them.

I decided to fill in the blanks just a little. Enter Yoth Oorlac, Outer God and member of the cryptic Old Ones. This deity is most decidedly not canon so feel free to alter him to suit your campaign if you use him. Word of Warning to Keepers planning to use him in a scenario: As with most Outer Gods, this entity is extremely dangerous. Unprepared or foolhardy investigators squaring off against him will probably be turned into pasta sauce.
