THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE YELLOW SIGN
Both a secret society and a religious organization, the Brotherhood of The Yellow Sign has apparently existed since time immemorial. Very little is known by the party about The Brotherhood but it all points to the unsavory:
-They worship an alien entity known as The Unspeakable One.
-The Unspeakable One is also known as Magnum Innominandum, He Who is Not to be Named, and most peculiarly, The King in Yellow.
-The symbol known as The Yellow Sign is linked with the Unspeakable One and prolonged viewing of it causes unease. -Worship of The Unspeakable One led to the collapse of the pre-human Valossan Empire and the sinking of Valossa.
-The cult has been long established in Liberportus and was connected with the highest levels of government.
-A few members of the Brotherhood can summon horrifying creatures, not altogether crows, nor moles, nor buzzards, nor ants, nor decomposed human beings that fly down from the heavens to do the bidding of the Brotherhood. Etrusicus has attempted to summon one of these creatures but it immediately attacked him.
-The Brotherhood attempted to bring an aspect of The Unspeakable One into our plane of existence to spread madness unto the world.
-Those who have intimate dealing with the cult may experience strange dreams involving various aspects of the Unspeakable One’s mythology. Most often seen is a city on a lake that is both alien and familiar. The city’s name is immediately known to the dreamer. It is Carcosa.
-A sect of the cult operating in the Italian resort town of Vestalanium was able to summon an avatar of the Magnum Innomiandum, The Boneless One. The resulting mental shock drove the entire town mad.
From the resurrected Sealord Drac the PCs learned:
-The Unspeakable One resides on or near Aldebaran, above the Hyades.
-His power on earth is at its highest when the constellation Taurus is at its zenith.
-His "gift to the minds of men" comes in the form of a play. There are two different versions of the play known: Adventus Regis by Livius Carbo and The Queen and The Stranger by Estus Talbus.
