Nglethk N'keh Fl'hlgath

You have chosen to become nya Nglethk N'keh Fl'hlgath, a member of the collective of infinite growth.

Many shoggothim find themselves attracted to such an affiliation after becoming devotees of the philosophies of Lyglgth, though this is hardly a requirement. Indeed, the only driving tenent that Nglethk N'keh Fl'Hlgath possesses at all is the encouragement to explore those ideas and inspirations unique to oneself as a shoggoth -- a concept known as one's yrnhhngr, or 'personal vision'.

While this inspiration can take many forms, it is most often realized as a sort of free-form, individual self-expression. Some shoggothim craft artworks or debate philosophy, while others take complex and highly idiosyncratic forms and still others pursue various types of performative experiences, usually involving the harvesting or consumption of other life forms. Shoggothim being the highly individualized and complex creatures that they are, one nya'kh yrnhhngr often seems incomprehensible to others.

As one's understanding of one's yrnhhngr increases, so does one's ability to learn other skills related to one's yrnhhngr. In other words, as one increases one's progress towards realizing one's yrnhhngr, an ability of personal autodidaction will become increasingly manifest.

Spoiler warning: information below includes details, such as solutions to puzzles or quest procedures, that you may prefer to discover on your own.

The real entrance is at 17, -13, -1, then ei.



Go to 8, 8, -3 Tetlacana (the southeast corner of the bottom of the lagoon) and follow the course of the river until you can go upwards, which should take you to Lyglgth's cave, where you can say "I wish to consume insight." in Ngaathgl. This does not always work as he does not always have the strunthlg that enable verbal reception or production, in which case one may have to wait for him to form them at random.

  • You will need an amount of literacy skill to join, no more than ~70.


None, so far.

Increasing yrnhhngr

The following are actions which are believed to increase one's yrnhhngr (this is not a complete list)

  • gaining experience points
  • receiving skill training
  • participating in combat (dealing and/or receiving damage)
  • killing creatures
  • ng'flgath and ng'uvgulth any strunthlg
  • eating food or corpses (or sunlight for photovore shoggothim, or blood for sanguivores)


The progression vectors are laid out pretty overtly in the helpfile, just do shoggoth stuff but also the other sorts of progress common to character development. Other than access in nearly every skill, you only get autodidaction.

Autodidaction points seem to increase in proportion with your unmodified scholarship and practice ratings. For example, with 6 specs in scholarship at 220/220 and 3 specs in practice at 150/150, I have 5 autodidaction points from Nglethk.

Seems there is some factor for scaling spec access into skills that you have autodidacted. For example, I have martial arts autodidacted to 1, and immediately my spec access was 2. After a few weeks had passed, my spec access for martial arts is now 4 even though I still have only autodidacted it to 1. May be based off of yrnhhngr.

There are no other benefits at this time.
