Age of Xoth

Age of Xoth

Eons long, The War of Gods comes to an end.  The Outer Gods are thrown clear of the conflagration. Azathoth drifts comatose and the others are scattered in multiple dimensions.

Nyarlathotep seeks to unify the Outer Gods once again under a new reign. Banishing and tormenting those who oppose his direct lineage. Many of the now free Great Old Ones use spells to hide, hibernate, or run from the oppressive takeover of Nyarlathotep. The other Outer Gods take a nihilistic view of his actions.

End of the God War

Take Over

Return To Xoth

The Great Cthulhu, High Priest of Azathoth, will not be bested by the actions of Nyarlathotep nor his ruling.  Cthulhu returns to a conquered planet from another dimension from before the previous war. He was worshipped there long ago by the inhabitants on a planet that orbits around a green binary star system called Xoth.

Bid For Power

Cthulhu leaves the title of High Priest behind and is now called Great Cthulhu. In his search for power, his worshippers, now called the Starspawn or Xothians, bring him a substance called tzohar.  If consumed properly with the right incantations and spells, it will increase the power of the chosen. Cthulhu decides to challenge Nyarlathotep and rise to power to become an Outer God.

Cthulhu Found

Ritual after ritual builds Great Cthulhu's power levels. With the tzohar supply now exhausted, Cthulhu needs even more power to outmatch The Black One.  The spells of hiding and distraction cannot hide the new power levels of Great Cthulhu. Nyarlathotep notices a new power in a distant galaxy in a fourth dimension. Even without the sighting of Hunting Horrors, Cthulhu knows the coming of Nyarlathotep is at hand. Cthulhu's scouts and spies are seeking out all dimensions for more tzohar. The Elder Gods used tzohar for their own purposes and can be sometimes found where they once dwelt.

Nyarlathotep Comes

Cthulhu gets word that more tzohar has been found on another world far away in another dimension. Unfortunately, Nyarlathotep comes to visit Cthulhu on the planet in the Xoth system. Nyarlathotep noti ces the increased power level of Cthulhu, who now has spawn as well. Nyarlathotep demands fealty, but Cthulhu does not answer. Nyarlathotep immediately leaves the system furious. During his exit, Nyarlathotep implodes one of the Xothian stars which in turn starts becoming a black hole. The whole solar system starts to fill the strain. Before Xoth is ripped apart by the titanic gravitational pull, Cthulhu creates a portal for he and his Starspawn to travel through to the new world where tzohar has been found.

The Death of Xoth

The Xothian solar system starts to fill the strain and is being ripped apart. Before Xoth is torn asunder by the titanic gravitational pull of the black hole, Cthulhu creates a portal for he and his Starspawn to travel through to the new world where tzohar has been found. The spells to perform this feat are mighty and the loss of power high, but many of the Starspawn escape destruction, but not all. Cthulhu is not pleased with the recent turn of events.

Age of Conquest

Preparation

Scouting forces for the Starspawn have located tzohar far from their home planet of Xoth. Hunting Horrors of Nyarlathotep dog their trail, but the Starspawn overwhelm them with numbers and fanatical zealotry. Landing on the new planet, the Starspawn immediately begin to build a temple to their physical god the Great Cthulhu. A summoning portal has to be built for him to swim the channels across the voids of hyperdimensional space and time.

Xothic Wars II

The Starspawn are interrupted in their temple building by the Qhrellian inhabitants who dwell there already. At the beginning of the war, the Starspawn are pushed off of the temple build site by the Elder Qhrell forces. Brutal fighting takes place and the Starspawn take the site back.  The war continues unabated for years with both sides taking high casualties. The Elder Qhrell use elderitch technologies to great effect blasting the Starspawn with electrical blasts from their weaponry.

Showdown

As the years passed the temple of the Starspawn became almost complete. The Elder knew what would happen if the temple was finished and the Starspawn would be reinforced. This is when they chose an all out attack with everything they had to throw into the battle. The battle raged during a terrible storm and waned back and forth with no army gaining any advantage. The casualties were high with no quarter offered or accepted. As the champion of the Starspawn, "Mighty Zot" bested the Elder champion in a duel that lasted hours, he held the dying Elder champion aloft that all could see. An evil chant was heard from the temple as the storm  reached a new peak of violence.  Cthulhu was coming.
