DOWNTON ABBEY MEETS LOVECRAFT MEETS NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in Deadtown Abbey.

It is a world few of us have ever known. A world of masters and servants, where everyone knows one’s place. A world of newfangled technology like telephones and motorcars. A world of vampires, werewolves, zombies, and monsters of the deep. At the center of his necropolis estate lives the Earl of Monroe, who must hold the family he loves and the servants he trusts together against the eldritch onslaught of this rapidly changing world.

Messengers of Yig

A mass of writhing snakes that has taken the rough shape of a man.

The Tables of Maxctli was defaced centuries ago. From context clues, we can see there was once instructions to summon the so-called Serpents That Walk but someone chiseled them from the stone. Their true name was removed as well. It is unknown if the epitaph carved in the wound, Messenger of Yig, was an attempt at humor on the part of the vandal or an attempt to placate them. 

Alternative names: The Serpents That Walk, Zsthu

N’kinih and Zha-shg

A beautiful woman conjoined at the back of her head with a giant snake.

The Tables of Maxctli gives us a sort of family tree of the Court of Yig. This may be the most suppressed part of the text. You’ll find few translations. The implications are not fit for polite society. Especially in regards to the Aygghya, a title given to twins that are both children and grandchildren of the Snake God. 

Other Names:  Mother-of-All-Serpents, Aygghya

The Apocalypse Serpent

A giant snake with feathers on its head, rising over mayan pyramids, fangs bared, reaching toward the sun.

The Tables of Maxctli give us the best picture of the Apocalypse Serpent, which the Ophidian Folk call Yqphuactl. A snake leagues upon leagues in length. A head crowned in feathers, much like Quetzalcoatl of the Aztecs. A mouth so wide it could, and will, eat the sun. Of course, this is probably all metaphor, Yqphuactl is too large to be seen whole by the human eye. 

Other Names:  The Great Dragon, Yqphuactl, Jörmungandr

Jenglot

A tiny, wizened and mummified, sexless humanoid creature. It's head looks too big for its body. There are two sunken sockets were the eyes used to be, and sharp teeth protrude its lipless mouth. The hair from its head is long and unkept, reaching its legs. Both its feet and its hands have long, sharp claws.

Arif opened the small wooden box. Inside, resting on a bed of excelsior wool and its own long hair was a tiny mummy. Something like the remains of a man that was withering away, in danger of shrinking down to nothing. Was it human, though? It was the rough shape of a man or something close, certainly. A monkey? Thin arms terminating in long claws crossed its chest. Tusks protruded from the top and bottom of the mouth. As we examined the tiny creature, it seemed to shift in its bed. We jumped back from the shock. Not a mummy but a living thing! “Welcome to the Church of Kailour. He is pleased to accept your worship,” said Arif. 

Alternative names: psychic mummies
