Trail of Cthulhu: Eternal Lies
Rivelazioni di Glaaki
The original version of the Revelations is made up of twelve aged ring binders containing numerous sheets of low grade paper on which Glaaki’s cult write down their god’s wisdom. A few copies of this version have been produced by rogue cult members. The last volume is exceptionally rare and It is said to be written ina shaky and spidery handwriting, almost indecipherable.
In 1864 a renegade member of Glaaki’s cult escaped with a large number of notes copied from the Revelations. Early the next year Supremus Press of Liverpool published an expurged version of the Revelations from these notes. This version misses out most of volumes ten to eleven and a number of references to other underground cults have been removed. The Supremus Press edition is made up of nine Folio sized books bound in leather.

Volume Twelve: It was written from the dreams of a man who lived up on Mercy Hill and sold to a used bookseller for a pittance. While focusing mainly on the return of the Old Ones and the rise of Rlyeh, this volume allso contains a section on the Great Old One Y’golonac. Readers must be cautious of these passages since even reading Y’golonac’s name can summon him. In said section a reader can finds several spells relateing to an artifact known as The Hand of Y’golonac. Due to it’s unique nature and contents there are very very few copies of this volume in existence.
