A mysterious Outer God, little is known that of Nyog’Sothep. He is said to take the form of a vast mist that can envelop whole kingdoms, and none know what horrors might lurk within it.

Vestige Level: 7th
Binding DC: 32

Legend
There is little to be said of Nyog’Sothep. Even his name is nothing more than a cipher—Nyog’Sothep, in the black tongue of the Outer Gods, simply means “hidden name.” Nyog’Sothep has no cults and is not recorded in any of the great eldritch texts. The Revelations of Glaaki, scribed by a Great Old One, are thought to allude vaguely to him, but that is the limit of all that is known about the Nameless Mist.

The binding rituals for calling Nyog’Sothep are thought to have been given to mortalkind by Nyarlathotep himself, ever ready to give mankind another gift with which to destroy itself.

Special Requirement
Nyog’Sothep does not place any restrictions on those who can bind it, but there are dangers to doing so. Every time you bind to Nyog’Sothep and make a bad pact, you must make a DC 25 Will save or take 1d6 points of Charisma drain.

Manifestation
Nyog’Sothep manifests as a pillar of mists, swarming with phantasmal eyes and mouths.

Sign
A faint cloud of light mist surround those bound to Nyog’Sothep, clinging to them.

Influence
Those bound to Nyog’Sothep begin to lose their concept of self. They will not refer to themselves, and will gradually cease to think of themselves as individuals the more they bind to Nyog’Sothtep.

Granted Abilities
Nyog’Sothep grants you power over mist, and also cloaks your identity.

Devouring Mist (Su)
As a standard action, you can create a cloud of mist that drains the life of those within it, creating a 20-ft. radius spread of mist that is 20 ft. high. The mist is like that of the fog cloud spell, and also deals 1d12 damage to any creature other than you or your allies that is in it. As a move action, you can move the cloud of mist up to 15 ft. The mist lasts for 1 round/level. You cannot create another cloud of devouring mist while an old one still remains, and once the duration of this ability ends, you must wait 5 rounds before you can use it again.

Mistform (Su)
You may use gaseous form on yourself as a standard action. You can remain in gaseous form indefinitely. You lose access to all other supernatural abilities you have while in mistform. Once this ability’s duration has ended, you must wait 5 minutes before you can use it again.

Shroud of Mist (Su)
You are shrouded in a veil of mist that both conceals your body and hides your mind. You gain 20% concealment, and gain immunity to effects that alter, read, or probe your mind, as the mind blank spell. You do not gain the benefits of this ability if you do not show Nyog’Sothep’s sign.
