We know the Cultists found the Necronomicon in an unmarked grave two years ago and gave it to Decca, Leader of the Cult of Shut'thend who in turn then handed it over to Yog-Sothoth. We know that advanced Cultist technology altered the genetic code of the Green Leprechaun to create a more aggressive Evil Leprechaun that was unleashed last year at an even greater threat level by Yog-Sothoth at our Halloween event. We now know that incantations are being used from the Necronomicon to bring forth even more dark forces to elevate the chaos level on Monria, and this is not a good thing.

As a reminder, and for those who don't know about the Necronomicon, it's an ancient book of text that was compiled by Abdul Alhazred (also known as the "Mad Arab") in the 8th century, and it contains magic spells and incantations that can summon the darkest of evil. The Necronomicon was originally called Al Azif that Abdul wrote while living in Damascus before his sudden and mysterious death in 738. It was later translated into Greek and given the name Necronomicon.

It is said that studying the text of the Necronomicon is inherently dangerous, and for anyone attempting to master its arcane knowledge, there's potential for meeting an unexpected and untimely death. However, that said, the Cultists are an advanced civilization quite prolific in their own use of arcane magic. They worship Cthulhu and are in his service to do whatever bidding is expected of them, including mastering the dark magic from the Necronomicon that will ultimately awaken him from his death-like sleep in the City of R'lyeh at the core of Monria.

The Necronomicon is comprised of substantial text, but in the unabridged version located at the Miskatonic University Library, a specific passage stands out:

"Nor is it to be thought...that man is either the oldest or the last of Earth's masters, or that the common bulk of life and substance walks alone. The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be. Not in the spaces we know, but between them, they walk serene and primal, undimensioned, and to us unseen. Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through, and where they shall break through again."​

As a result of Pinthas (Cthulhu's twin brother Kthanid, and the one who put him in his death-like sleep) refusing to assist Decca, K'Tan and the other Cultists primed to perform a ritual of incantations and magic spells to awaken Cthulhu, they are now working with Yog-Sothoth as well to determine a way to summon other dark forces in an attempt to find a work-around without Pinthas. I don't need to tell you how deeply dangerous this is for Monria.

The question we asked last year at this time was ... is Monria all that we have to be concerned about?

This year, we know there's more to be concerned about because dark forces have also invaded both Toulan and DSEC-9, and we know that Decca has a hand in it at some level. Monria is always in danger, but during Halloween, the threat level rises and we have to be even more vigilant.

I suppose the question we should ask this year is ... with the escalation of chaos that seems to be imminent, will we be able to continue being victorious in these battles?

Oh, and ... based on who authored the Necronomicon, the question would be ... is there a connection in all of this to Toulan?
