Vestige Level: 1st
Binding DC: 17

Legend
In ancient times, Cthulhu is said to have clashed with Hastur, a lesser Great Old One, engaging in savage violence. Though Cthulhu easily overpowered and dispatched the Unspeakable One, Hastur did succeed in spilling a scant few drops of Cthulhu’s blood. While Cthulhu barely noticed his wounds, a cult of lesser aberrations conspired to take his blood, and with it created Rhogog, a shapeshifter born from the blood of the Great Old Ones. It is said that he is fated, along with the Crawling Chaos, Nyarlathotep, to play a role in the rise of Cthulhu from R’lyeh.

Unlike most of the old ones, Rhogog is free to roam the world as he pleases, and has drawn many cultists to him. The most faithful have been rewarded with knowledge of a ritual that can be used to bind an aspect of Rhogog to themselves, drawing on the power of the sacred blood he bears.
