Cover their eyes with the mist! Make them go missing without a trace!A battlecry made by Rtari cultists.
Rtar is the chaos god of fog, the unknown, what lurks below, and going missing without a trace. He is described as a cloud of reddish black smoke with crackling lightning illuminating the internal organs within. He is the second most powerful chaos god, behind Yash. His patron number is 3.14, and unlike most chaos gods, he lacks a patron beast. He also does not appear to have a court of any kind.
God of Missing Persons
Rtar is the God of Missing Persons, disappearance without a trace, unsolved murder, and the unknown. He embodies one of the most common elements of human experience, what you do not know. Although I probably shouldn’t be talking on the subject. Rtar lacks a home, a beast, and even a consistent form. Similar in nature to the instigators of the enigmatic violence he embodies, there is little to no evidence of his existence other than what he leaves behind.
Even his number, is an approximation, like his whereabouts. Because of this instability, his summoning, and even joining his ranks are extremely difficult.
Like the instigators of the heinous felonies who act as his patrons, he feeds on murders, deaths, and suicides. However, unlike the killers, who feed on the sadistic blood lust, or those who just want to enter the Empryean, Rtar feeds on mystery, and unsolved aspect of the deaths. An unsolved murder, suicide, or just a mystery corpse is enough to sustain Rtar. However, once the mystery is cracked, the food spoils and Rtar must find a new source of sustenance.
Although Rtar himself is the most enigmatic of the chaos gods, his armies, and his cultists are the exact opposite. Whether or not Rtar is intentionally doing this, or it is just a side effect of who he attracts, the legions of Rtar are known as the Hypocrisy Legions.
For they are the most predictable army in existence, their strategies are boring at best, and at worst an entire legion can be extirpated because of the sloppy planning. Even the minions of Rtar are predictable, almost always is their skin red, and bloody coral outgrowths erupt from their flesh. Even better, they have a easy to find weakspot. Their head is just a small little lamprey-like mouth with a single glowing blue gem. Shoot the gem, and they are dead.
Words cannot describe my disappointment in Rtar, but perhaps this is just another layer to the Living Enigma. Although, clearly his predictable armies are successful, for their stagnation in cultural, and strategic evolution is astonishing. Better yet, Rtar has the largest army, even compared to Yash. However, this comes not from the amount of willing soldiers, but from the amount who were forcefully transformed into Rtari footsoldier mutants.
Yash is the chaos god of the abyss. His patron color is yellow, his patron number 12, and his patron beast the kraken. He lives at the bottom of the Ulthar trench, in a large yellow and green coral palace. Because his servants lack creativity of any kind, he lacks a battle cry, or even a collective name for his servant legions other than the Servants of Yash. Profane scholars in my Archives however call his soldiers Yashi Cultists.
God of the Abyss
Yash is not just the god of the literal abyss in the ocean depths, but also the god of the emotional abyss; when one loses all hopes and aspirations and sinks into the depths of madness and depravity. The death of hope, peace, and aspiration fuels Yash’s ravenous need for sustenance. Unfortunately, Yash is almost always on the brink of bursting like a full tick.
However, he also feeds on the emotions correlating to the dark abyss of the unknown. Curiosity, science, and the need to discover to the point of zealousness also sustain Yash. The deadly duo of sustaining energies makes Yash one of the most powerful, and dangerous, of the chaos gods.
Description of Yash are not as myriad as his other brothers, he is almost always depicted as an armored humanoid with the face of an octopus. The skin is rubbery, yellow, and slimy, and all but the lower part of the head is covered in green chainmail. His visage is the likely inspiration behind the mythical “Cthulhu”.
Court of Yash
The Court of Yash is unlike the Courts of the other gods, while disturbingly alien, the creativity of the Court of R’thiel knows no depraved limits, and the Court of Rtar is relentless in their ingenious slaughter. However, the Court of Yash, alike his food source, is completely drained of hope, aspiration, and creativity.
The purpose of the Court of Yash is unfathomable to mortal minds, and even those of other Chaos Gods. For without aspiration, creativity, or even the most profane mockery of hope, the Court of Yash is purposeless.
