The guild of eldritch horror

5 posts in this topic

The stars will soon be right. The old ones must be awakened. They will return to us, We shall lose our minds and laws and morels, we will transcend good and evil. The old ones shall teach us their ways, we shall all revel in the ecstasy of madness and flame.

It’s high time we had a Guild dedicated to the worship and introduction of HP Lovecraft's eldritch horrors into the Alleyverse. Essentially we are a Lovecraftian cult whose aims align with the DA’s for now… If you want to join us in our cyclopean quest just make a post where your RP character has a nightmare filled with guttural chants before awakening to find themselves beset by the urge to chant along with them. And you also have to swear to follow the elder gods, just a formality. Fair warning, your sanity has no place in this guild.

Akrasia's eyes snapped open, his mind echoed with his most recent nightmare. He had been pursued by terror, it had held no shape it was an idea, a vague, but sanity rending terror. there had been sounds as well, now he tried to repeat them his twisted vocal cords stumbling over the unfamiliar inhuman syllables. "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" A tremor shook him, his thousands of spikes seeming to resonate with the same terrible note. Without meaning to he said it again "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" There it was! A consciousness vast and unknown brushed against his own, his spikes once again vibrated with that joyous but terrible resonance. This time he screamed it, he couldn't help it "PH'NGLUI MGLW'NAFH CTHULHU R'LYEH WGAH'NAGL FHTAGN!!!!" The consciousness focused itself upon him, a tentacle of it forcing its way into his mind. Howling with ecstasy he rejoiced in the visions of death and flame, he saw aeons of gore and death. The taters of his sanity were effortlessly swept away some part of him buried deep within recoiled in horror but it was rapidly being smothered. Akrasia's last thought was terror, terror for the Alleyverse, terror for his friends, terror for himself. Then it was gone the last vestiges of humanity were swept away. He was now part of something elderich, something alien and malignant, something glorious.

Gaan awoke in the purest of terrors, letting forth a scream to wake the dead. He’d felt something brush his mind, as he dreamt of cyclopian cities, and impossible buildings. A consciousness had brushed his mind. Like a writhing tentacle, it pulled and prodded, until retreating, leaving only a sentence in its place. The words came out of his mouth unbidden. “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn” He felt a ripple in the world around him, as if some great being was moving, though on a plane higher then our own.  “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn” Again the words came without choice. Thie ripples grew faster, and soon they were nearly constant. “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn” It came out as a ragged yell. Then, it’s mind touched his. It’s tentacles soon reached into the farthest depths of his mind, and with them came visions. Maddening, horrible visions. Cities in flames, planets being razed. The destruction of the universe, and everything on this plane of existence burned. It was horrible, but as Gaan felt his mind being destroyed to serve a greater one, the horror turned to ecstasy. And then Gaan was gone, his body now simply a vessel for something far far greater then him.

I swear to serve the elder gods in all that I do.

I'd join, but my character is dead. And my future characters aren't of that sort.

Hmmmmmm...

I'm interested in joining this, but I'd like some extra information first. What are the benefits? Do I get dental? How about the ability to perform complex rituals to imbue myself power? What about the risks? Am I likely to accidentally offend the almight gods and be struck down unexpectedly, or are they more the type to warn you before they murder you?
