Y'golonac - Great Old One
A great old one, bloated, glowing figure which dwells underground in a vast ruin behind a wall of bricks
“Beyond a gulf in the subterranean night a passage leads to a wall of massive bricks, and beyond the wall rises Y’golonac to be served by the tattered eyeless figures of the dark. Long has he slept beyond the wall, and those which crawl over the bricks scuttle across his body never knowing it to be Y’golonac; but when his name is spoken or read he comes forth to be worshipped or to feed and take on the shape and soul of those he feeds upon. For those who read of evil and search for its form within their minds call forth evil, and so may Y’golonac return to walk among men . . .”
Y’golonac may appear to be a normal, somewhat neurotic and flabby human. When he manages to contact a person that is debased in evil, the victim is possessed and absorbed by the deity, and thereafter his shape can change at will from the form of the possessed individual to Y’golonac’s true form – glowing, headless, naked and huge, with wet mouths opening in the palms of its hands.
Y’golonac is delineated in the Revelations of Glaaki, an arcane book. It is a bloated, glowing figure who purportedly dwells underground in a vast ruin behind a wall of bricks. The prison may be near the Severn Valley city of Brichester, for it is known to frequent that place. It is a minor god, but malignant.
Y’golonac has little cult, but strives mightily after more worship, entrapping those who are subtly evil to be his priests. Y’golonac’s notion of evil seems to be a shallow one, however.
