Just to be clear, I warned you in my DME's Message to the Community in the VS Quarterly | June 2022 magazine that there was impending danger. The latest DEC-CAM 9 images from the DSEC-9 final map section is not good news at all.
These recent photos are confirmation that Decca and her evil Cultists are advancing their efforts to put a plan in place to use the Necronomicon and dark magic incantations to try to awaken Cthulhu. Her attempts over time failed because she needs Pinthas, along with Priests to perform the ritual incantation, so I don't know how she's going to pull this one off. However, I did warn that knowing Decca as I do, and given her history of evil that she and K'Tan put Pinthas through, she may be savvy enough to find a workaround.
It looks like she has established a Cult of Shut'thend headquarters where all planning may take place, but it also looks like they are doing some mind control testing. The door is off its hinges, so I wonder if whatever or whoever their victims are get locked in during testing. There is no doubt in my mind that the Cultists are using the powers they receive from the Maladrite Elixir in order to perform this egregious testing. Also, where are they getting their test subjects from?
My other question is ... how do the Elder Things fit into this?
What I know about the Elder Things is that they were the first extraterrestrial species that inhabited Earth about a billion years ago. They have the ability to withstand the deepest of ocean pressures, interstellar travel, and can hibernate for great periods of time. It is said that few of them die except by accident or violence. Their race is alien, and their motivations and intentions to humans is unfathomable.
Their greatest achievement was creating the Shoggoth servitor race, and were extremely dependent upon them. It seems that they initially colonized the entirety of Earth, but continued wars over millions of years and a rebellion by the Shoggoths lessened their strength. It is not certain what eventually happened to the Elder Things but scientists had speculated that they still may survive in some places. It was also said that there had been travel through a dimensional portal to a planet in a triple star system where they lived.
I don't know about you, but I'm not feeling too easy about all this. I know that Decca is relentless, and I know that she not only uses her own dark magic powers and that of the Cultists to affect what she wants, but she can steal advanced technology from others -or- it wouldn't surprise me if she was also working with the rogue and extreme DSEC science team to manipulate and bend things to her will.
I think we have a lot of preparing to do, and we shouldn't waste any time.
