about

“…to go with bold entreaty whither no man had gone before, and dare the icy deserts through the dark to where unknown Kadath, veiled in cloud and crowned with unimagined stars, holds secret and nocturnal the onyx castle of the Great Ones.”
HP Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

The antediluvian onyx doors swing wide, revealing no other temple than the infinite vastness of the glowing beyond. Space and time stretch to immeasurable lengths, becoming nothing and everything at once.
The survivors pick up the shimmering instruments strewn about the chamber, one by one beginning to play, starting to shriek – one by one lifting to the stars, beginning to wail, starting to…change.
The journey has come to a close at the peak of cosmic chaos.
They are Home

“Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity — the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.”
