"Hastur Hastur Hastur Hastur Hastur Hastur Hast... urrrrrk!"
[ Type : ] lloigor [ Portfolio : ] hatred [ Disposition : ] inexpressibly hostile [ Offerings Desired : ] magickal objects [ Spirit Point Cost : ] two hundred to three hundred [ Requirements to Invoke : ] worship Hastur, have at least 60 points among elder lore skill and 10% of pain tolerance skill or have been in the presence of Hastur [ General Information : ] Hastur, called the Unspeakable as a shorthand for He Who Must Not Be Named -- which should give you an idea of how dangerously you're living by invoking it at all -- is a thing of incredible, cosmic hatred. Under the right circumstances, a sort of infusion of that hatred can be obtained for yourself, and for the sufficiently skilled, Hastur has been known to manifest a portion of itself through the invoker to direct its wrath against an opponent. Exercise extreme caution, however; Hastur does not like being bothered, to state the case faintly, and its immense hatred can easily be directed at you.
He'll make you berserk if invoked out of combat. The King in Yellow is way scary. Wear a hat.
- The aforementioned berserking effect also gives you bonuses to certain combat skills (brawling, for example). But berserking bargles up your speech, so no invocations while you're frothing at the mouth. Nice for those times when you want to give the gods a rest and just punch a hole in someone. -- Porphyria
Invoking him in combat makes him shove a tentacle up your gullet - yes - UP your gullet, and out of your mouth, and wrecks your target. -Benny
