|D-38: Kaman-Thah [F]|
Priest of the Dreamlands
|If you control Nasht, Kaman-Thah gains +3 skill, and .|
Kaman-Thah first appeared in the story The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath (H.P. Lovecraft, 1927).
Nasht and Kaman-Thah are two mysterious individuals dressed as Egyptian priests. They are never encountered outside of the Cavern of Flame at the Dreamlands' entrance. Nasht and Kaman-Tha seem indistinguishable, though some consider Nasht to have a greater understanding of the waking world. The two decide whether a visitor is worthy to enter the lands of dream, and they may be asked about the Dreamlands and the ways of its gods. Some people of the Dreamlands revere Nasht and Kaman-Thah as gods, but it is unclear whether they number among the Great Ones or merely serve as their priests.
