A Hyperborean Glossary [A-F]

Laurence J. Cornford


SG & DA, "The Source of Uncleanness". A huge pool of grey matter that spawns monsters from its depths, just as Ubbo-Sathla spawns life. It dwells in a cave under Mount Voormithadreth, in a realm called "grey-litten Y'qaa" (or Y'quaa), that could be part of N'kai or a similar subterranean realm (Krannoria for example) and is accessible through tunnels in Mount Voormithadreth. Claimed to be the firstborn offspring of Ubbo-Sathla and the progenitor of Atlach-Nacha, it may also be related to Tsathoggua (q.v.). Some texts claim that it is the name by which the Hyperboreans vilified Ubbo-Sathla (although both are Hyperborean names), or linked with Shub-Niggurath due to its fruitfulness. Also called Abhoth the Dark and Abhoth the Unclean. [C.A.Smith; C.Wilson; L.Carter; G.Myers; R.M.Price]

"The God of Time", an obscure avatar of Yog-Sothoth (q.v.), he allows creatures to alter past and future times. He is worshipped in several worlds. He is said to dwell on the moon of Occlat.

Antanôk (planet):
In HU, a long since destroyed planet which was situated between Mars and Jupiter. Its remains form the Asteroid Belt. Before it's destruction there was a little intercourse between Earth & Antanôk, and certain authorities suggest that mankind as we now know it is descended from Antanôkian colonists. Note a similar planet called Yllednis appears in Colin Wilson's novel The Star Vampires, and logic suggests it is the same world. Also called Antanoth (q.v.). [C.A.Smith]

The offspring of Cthugha (although texts are not clear on this point). It is physically a ball of grey flame. Much data on it is contained in the Pnakotic Manuscripts where it is attributed as the progenitor of Rhan-Tegoth and the Gnophkehs. Possibly a facet of Zhar? [L.Carter]

A variant spelling of Aphoom Zhah (q.v.). [L.Cornford]

In SG & DA, "The Spider God". Superficially resembles a giant hairy spider with a hideous, vaguely human face. He came from Saturn with Tsathoggua. He dwells underground (in Mount Voormithadreth) and spends his æons spinning a weird web. It kills its victims by puncturing them with thousands of spins and sucking out their juices.

In TA & IA, the empire in the Atlantic Ocean, which paid tribute to Hyperborean. It lies slightly north west of Africa. Noted for its sorceries and the living metal - orichalc. It was contemporary with both Hyperborea and Valusia. Originally (c.100,000 B.C.) it was a barbarian land, but in time Atlantis was divided into several kingdoms ruled by the Witch-Kings. As time passed the land sank until, during the Great Cataclysm (c.25,000 B.C) its last islands (Poseidonis) disappeared and its few survivors fled either to Thuria or to Antillia (America). Several of its colonies survived, like Bal-Sagoth (into the 12th century) and Negari (into the 16th century). Several Old Ones were worshipped in Atlantis including Dagon, Iod, Bugg-Shash (as "The Night-Thing"), Gol-goroth, and Ghatanothoa. [C.A.Smith (folklore); H.P.Lovecraft; R.E.Howard; etc.]

Sometimes called Azathoth-Ubbo-Sathla in His rôle as the Progenitor of the Universe (referred to as "the Prime Archetype") when he unconsciously created the Universe. Azathoth and Ubbo-Sathla divided like a single-celled animal into two "equal" entities. Azathoth was cast down by the Elder Gods when they discovered that they could not control His madness. His name (particularly his Other Name in his "bivalvular shape", N----------- or Xada-Hgla,) is dangerous to utter, and His insane mutterings create the laws of time and space. He has been called a personification of the Big Bang due to his title "Nuclear Chaos". [C.A.Smith (H.P.Lovecraft); etc.]

Book of Night, The:
In ABN, a sorcerous book, also known as the Noctuary of Vizooranos, which was discovered and lost again by Eibon.

Cerngothic Dynasty:
In LE, the last Dynasty of Hyperborea, following the end of the Uzuldaroum Dynasty. It was so named because the line was based on a branch of the royal family who originated in Cerngoth, although that city had probably already succumb to the Great Ice by the time of Zorquus achieved the throne.

It was the most powerful city of its age gaining tributes from Atlantis, Mu, Tscho Vulpanomi, and Mhu Thulan. It was overrun by the formless spawn of Knygathin Zhaum during the reign of Loquamethros, and subsequently inhabited by the Formless Spawn of Tsathoggua. South of Commoriom are marsh-grow jungles filled with mailed monsters. [C.A.Smith]

In DT, a mouthless intelligent white mould who dwelt on an otherwise uninhabited world in orbit of the dim star Klr (q.v.). He is regarded as one of the most powerful "mundane" (i.e. not divine) magicians in the universe. During the Hyperborean Era it swapped its mind with the serpent-man sorcerer Zloigm, according to the Book of Eibon. Presumably he died in Zloigm's body as Zloigm's soul only returns to Earth in UA? [L.Carter/C.A.Smith]

In PDW & AF, "The Burning One". The fire god of the mythology said to live near the star Fomalhaut ("The Mouth of the Fish"). Connected with Fthagghua (q.v.) and the Fire Vampires or Flame Creatures.

The androgynous spawn of Azathoth, the "uncle" of Cthulhu and the "grandfather" of Tsathoggua. It spawned Hziulquoigmnzhah and Ghizghuth in a far system before moving to Yuggoth with its "family". Still resident on Yuggoth. It has cannibalistic appetites that cause it to be shunned, even by the Old Ones. It appeared for a long time like Cxaxukluth had (either directly or indirectly) spawned Cthulhu on the planet Vhoorl (q.v.), however an obscure text elucidates us: a god called Ptmâk is the direct father of Cthulhu, and thus "brother" (and missing twin) to Cxaxukluth, making Ptmâk and Cxaxukluth the Hyperborean names for Nug and Yeb. Cxaxukluth is probably Yeb. [C.A.Smith; L.J.Cornford (L.Carter)]

In DS & UA, etc., the name by which Saturn was known in Hyperborea. [C.A.Smith]

In LE, a magician born in Varaad. In the year of the Green Spider Cyron (20 years old) became apprenticed to Eibon (/articles/criticism/65 years old). Cyron was aged 87 when Eibon disappeared, having left his tutelage some years earlier. Cyron died only ?? years later. [L.Carter]

Desert Without A Name:
In WH, also known as the "nameless desert" — a land in the south eastern corner of Mhu Thulan, with one edge against the Mountains of Nephtarya. Said to lie between Hyperborea and Mu! The desert seems to behave oddly, possibly due to the influence of Nyarlathotep, whose Dark Citadel seems to lie in some dimensional rift within this desert. [J.R.Fultz/J.Burns]

Dirka Song:
In SP, this is mentioned in the Testament of Haon-Dor and refers to the Song of Yste, which suggests that Arkya is antehuman also, possibly even part of Thule? [L.Carter (R.A.W.Lowndes)]

He was born in the year of Commoriom's fall, and aged 12 Eibon's family were persecuted into the wilderness. At 10 years he became apprenticed to Zylac and remained into adulthood, before wandering the continent. After a unnaturally long and eventful life (some 132 years) he was persecuted until be fled to Cykranosh (Saturn), 100 years before Hyperborea succumbed to the great Ice Age. After this his disciple, Cyron of Varaad, compiled the Book of Eibon from his notes. He life is detailed in the Vita Ivonis ("The Life of Eibon"), also by Cyron of Varaad. The name "Eibon" appears to have been derived by one of the translators from the heretical Christian sect, the Eibonites, and does indeed appear as a personal name (the "E" of T.E.D.Klien's name stands for Eibon). [C.A.Smith; L.Carter; L.Cornford]

Eibon, Book of:
The magical book of Eibon of Mhu Thulan. The book was passed down by secret cults to the present day. Never printed until the 20th century, there are many editions which vary widely. Editions include: the Kishite Version; The Punic (1600 B.C.); The Greek Edition; The Latin Liber Ivonis (10th-11th century); Livre d'Ivon (13th century); and the only printed version, the Adkins and Jones edition of the Latin text (A.D.1937).

Elder Beings:
IN PDW, a name for the star-headed crinoid beings otherwise called Polar Ones or Old Ones in Hyperborean texts [L.Carter (C.A.Smith/H.P.Lovecraft)]

Elder Gods, The:
1) A group of gods generally opposed to the Other Gods and the "villains" of the Mythos. They dwell in Glyu-Vho, but originate in "the Great Abyss". According to legend they tried to control the insanity of the Other Gods by making them sentient, but the Other Gods resented being controlled, and rebelled against the tyranny and oppressive laws, travelling out of that dimension into the universe of Azathoth's creation. Angered by having no-one to rule, the Elder Gods pursued them, and finding them running amok through this universe they imprisoned them in a death-like sleep, and sealed them with spells (according to their followers). After this they appear to have lost interest in the Earth. Their worshippers (called "Reformists" by Robert Price) believe them to be the creators of the Great Old Ones. A breakaway faction, the "Redemptionists," believe the Elder Gods placed the Great Old Ones in a kind of purgatory. Strangely the Confessions of the Mad Monk Clithanus calls the Elder Gods "the Old Ones"! Few Elder Gods are named: Nodens, Kthanid, Yagkoolan, Bast, Vorvardoss, and possibly Yad-Thaddag S Rebathoth. They are served by the Star-Warriors of Orion and the Nightgaunts and have agents such as S'ngac; 2) The name is also applied more generally to any of the ancient gods.

Sfatlicllp, Zvilpogghua and to a lesser extent the Voormis are related to them. A branch of Formless Spawn were created by the half-breed Voormi Knygathin Zhaum when the strain of multiple decapitations caused him to revert to his Azathothian characteristics and overrun Commoriom (q.v.). His fissional spawn possessed no vestige of anything human or even Earthly. These might be the "toad-things" from which the Pirrak evolved. [C.A.Smith; H.P.L./Z.Bishop; Chaosium]
