Yig is an Ancient One that appears in the Elder Sign Core Set, an Epic Monster that appears in the Eldritch Horror Forsaken Lore, and a Character Card that appears in the Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game Forgotten Cities and The Yuggoth Contract.
TYC-85 appears in the Necronomicon Draft Pack.
Yig first appeared in the story The Curse of Yig (H.P. Lovecraft with Zealia Bishop, 1928).
Yig is a Great Old One that takes the form of a great serpent-man. Yig came to Earth eons ago from the world Zandanua. When Yig arrived, it was responsible for the creation of reptiles, insects, and, according to some, humanity. Yig now lives in the Pit of Ngoth in the caverns of Yoth, or possibly in the underground land of K'n-yan.
Unlike most of its fellow Great Old Ones, Yig is often benevolent toward humanity. In the autumn, however, it is necessary to propitiate it through drumbeating, offerings of corn, and various rituals, lest it visit its wrath upon those who harm the serpents, who are its spawn. Yig's wrath takes the form of madness, mutated offspring, and visits by its "children", snakes with a white crescent patch on their heads. Those who especially displease the god may themselves be transformed into snakes.
