Action: Sacrifice a Monster character to ready Nyogtha, or to remove a wound token from Nyogtha.
Nyogtha first appeared in the story The Salem Horror (Henry Kuttner, 1937).
Nyogtha is a Great Old One spawned of Tsathoggua or Ubbo-Sathla which appears as a dark amorphous mass. It possesses vampiric characteristics, feeding off the souls of those with whom it comes into contact.
Nyogtha dwells deep beneath the earth in the caverns of Yoth, or possibly within a dark world circling Arcturus. It can only manifest itself through certain openings to the upper world. Such openings have been found in Massachusetts, Syria, Tartary, Romania, New Zealand and the Plateau of Leng, but they undoubtedly exist in other places as yet undiscovered.
