Yatashi: Part 7.5

Yatashi Log 7.5

OOC Discussion & Unlogged IC Events between Scenes

It was around here that the war was conceived of. Yatashi originally went after Tiffany in order to obtain an artifact she carries, known as the Mor. It's not exactly something Tiffany can use ... it's pretty much the other way around. Tiffany was created to be its guardian. In the original gaming universe from which Tiffany comes, its function was never known, but the big guess was that it destroyed universes. Typical kind of thing for an Elder God to keep around.

I don't know if it works on non-Lovecraftian universes ... that is, those that aren't themselves part of an Elder God. But, in any case, Yatashi had planned to use it as a threat. With Constantine, he could use it surgically ... Trump into any part of Father he wanted, and blow up Shadows. He could have destroyed Yog-Sothoth, or forced it into submission, and it would have all been entirely offscreen and pointless. There's no point in running a plot without people to involve.

And so I had the following idea: if Yog-Sothoth was born of the Logrus- enhanced sorcery of a mad but fairly competent Chaosite, then somewhere in the mass of Shadows that make it up are the runes and blood-scribings that created it and gave it its identity. The anchors of Yog-Sothoth's mind, as it were. And even with the power to destroy, Yatashi could not change these. But with an army, and the aid of Advanced Trump, he could hold those points and as a sorcerer rewrite them. This let me bring in the people as a whole. I thought I could make the conflict fun for all involved. I didn't, at least in part because it didn't ever happen.

While I worked out how this is going to happen, circumstances provoke some small measure of action.
