Well, that is an interesting take on Nyarlathotep. After all of the millennia there should be more than a few avatars running around unless it has some way of reabsorbing them.
Irwin/Thigg is looking more polished these days.

Thank you!

I always thought it would be more interesting to have Nyarly be kind of split up instead of just changing shapes. Then again, this is just how Thigg understands it..

Thank you, I've been getting more consistent as time goes along, heh.

Nyarlathotep is a busy man! (Or busy lesser god, to be more accurate.)

Nyarlathotep is one of the cooler Mythos entities, specifically because his form and function lend themselves to interpretation. Everybody has a different take on him, his personality, his goals. And any number of those interpretations could all be correct.

Good ol' Crawling Chaos. :D

Oh yeah. He's a great mythos being to write for just because he could be after anything at any given time, so you can justify almost any motive you want to give him, hehe :D

Thigg seems to be betting heavily on lack of communication or presence, which could easily prove fatal. If Irwin really is still in control of his own mind then she should proceed with great caution. Thigg might have made himself irreplaceable to Irwin, but I bet that he cannot counter even a single aspect of a lesser god.

Intriguing developments in the works! :)

Yeess, yeess, I guess we'll have to hope that Thigg is right in this instance :)

I hope people enjoy the direction.

I do not know much so how does that work? Is there a central or main body? Is his power shared between bodies? That would make sense since he prefers to avoid combat so I guess one body is not as strong against another monster. Can he join together again? Or are the other bodies really scouts and not much else?
That means Jaunt also does not have to be as proper around him/them...

Yeah. Once October started, stores want me to believe I already MISSED Christmas. Jesus...

Oh man, I want to RAGE hard about this Christmas-in-September sales, it's not funny. I could live off mulled wine and marzipan loafs all year through, but as soon as winter is in full swing, it's getting replaced by easter eggs :-(

lmao, I know!! It has become quite annoying in the recent years. Before the holidays were business but now they are super aggressive business. Mid-September is already ads like "Do you have a present yet?" "Do not miss your presents!!"
My theory is that we just have much more crap advertised to us now. Ten years ago there were no real uber cool shiny smartphones and accessories and whatever you "need" these days according to companies. Nowadays, there is just so much useless stuff around and desperate sellers.

Easter eggs!? Bah!

Anyway, these are questions that I'm not sure I should really go into? XD Again, I don't like commenting much on speculation, but I've always liked the idea of Nyarlathotep having a slightly destabilized intelligence, or sort of "sectioned off" knowledge or the ability to be in many places at once.

However, risking the wrath of Nyarlathotep's more powerful forms, I would say, is still not in anyone's best interest. Heh. :)

Someone needs to break it to Thigg that he probably isn't Clara's type.

Which means that one 'mask' could be overtly aiding Yog Soth-oth in his ventures, while another may be covertly sabotaging them... and is using the fact that no one can tell the difference between the two in order to get away with it.

Nyarlathotep would be a decentralized intelligence, then. Each aspect understands the distant goal they are working towards, even if it is just spreading chaos through the universe.


Each aspect can use their own judgment as to what they do to achieve the end goal.

That makes me wonder if the aspects might find themselves in conflict, with one diligently following one path, while another has a different idea on how to achieve the end goal.

That's a good question! You pretty much read into the idea exactly as I hoped people would, that's great :)

Somewhat independent of each other does not necessarily mean that they don't share all the knowledge... Thigg may be right to some extend, more or less, or not. And if not, Thigh may rather likely not know how wrong he is. The really bad news about this is that Irwin has no way to verify all this and must trust Thigg in all this. (The other bad news is that Thigg probably isn't Clara's type. We also don't know whether Irwin was Clara's type.)

They're both kinda relying on what Thigg can understand, so for their sake let's hope he's right? Heheh
