Should you wish to invoke a dark pulse and sacrifice reality to it, try the following recipe.


1) You must pronounce the name of the four gods :

- The idiot god at the center of the universe, forever twirling at the sound of hideous flutes and abominable drums.

- The great serpent-shaped loa who created all water.

- The nine times father god of death, as he was known by siberians, turks and mongols.

- The monkey god who sought to devour the sun.

2) You should then trace the following on the ground :

- The name of the ancient one dreaming in his sunken city [1]

- The number of children that the norse Njörðr made to his own sister

- One symbol for each fundamental Element [2]

- The name of the Traveller that the Vuldrini saw as a moving torg and the McKetrick as a giant slor

3) You have then to perform the following :

- Sing the name of the god to whom the Phoenician and Canaanites were feeding their children

- Do it once in each direction of the dharmachakra

- Make one step backwards for each chtonian Palaci

- Call out the the black goat of the woods with a thousand young

4) Carefully protect yourself by concluding the ritual this way :

- Pour out one droplet of your blood for each egyptian Ogdoad

- Announce your offering to the assyrian-babylonian ruler of the wind demons

- Invoke the dragon which blood had shielded Sigurd

- Then, very simply, trace a cross in your blood.


Warning, the laws of magnetism might be slightly altered as a side-effect of a successful incantation.

I recognized this and it made me smile, thanks.

Solved it. Didn't claim the game.

Dark and interesting! About time I read some Lovecraft, methinks.

Thanks very much for putting this together.

If I want to read Lovecraft, where should I start?

PM sent.

[EDIT] I'm a moron. What platform is this for?

[EDIT 2] Note that I already have the game, so don't plan to claim it either, I just want to solve the puzzle. :)

First, get this. Then dive in.

Personal favorites would be the Dream Cycle stories, particularly Through the Gates of the Silver Key.

It seems like a lot, but they're all quite short by modern standards, and can be finished fairly quickly.

At the Mountains of Madness, Call of Cthulu, The Colour Out of Space and Shadow Over Innsmouth are all top rated favourites of many.
There are many free versions of Lovecrafts works in both audio and ebook format (as much is public domain)
OK, OK, I got it.

Booooooo Metallica version! ;)
Not in, as I have the game, but +1 for the giveaway. (I'd +infinity if I could, just for the sheer awesomeness of the setup!)

At the Mountains of Madness is an amazing story. I'd also recommend Lovecraft's Dreamlands stories, which have been collected a few times. (Convenient list/reference here.) They still contain elements of horror, but they're de-emphasized in favor of the fantastic and surreal. (Generally speaking.)

Thanks, bunch.

I've asked my library to fetch two books: one is a Dream Cycle collection, and the second includes all the works Sachys mentioned. So I think I've got all of your recommendations covered.
I only worship the Great Keane. All other gods are Blasphemy!

He is the Bringer of Fire and Giver of sleep. He stands strong where others fail. He alone brings us peace.

Alas, the Great Keane has forsaken us because some ridiculed Him. He deemed us unworthy of his presence. Now who will bring Sleep? Who will light the Fire Within?!
