Ritual to evoke Azathoth

Ritual to evoke Azathoth

Ratings: (0)|Views: 907|Likes:
Draft of ritual to drop Azathoth on somewhere. Should probably not be taken too seriously. Don't try this at home -- I would suggest out on the moors somewhere.

Concernynge Hym in y
 e
Gulph
[This is one of the papers comprising Michael Calmar’s anthology “Concernynge y
e
OldeOnes.” The present text was transcribed from a copy in an English academic collection. Atleast three other copies are known to be extant; two are in private collections and the third(believed to be a rough draft) somehow found its way to an American university library.]

“To worship Azathoth is to worship madness, and Azathoth’s clerics are themselves insane.” — entry for Azathoth in the suppressed Cthulhu mythos section of the Dungeons & Dragons first edition
 Deities and  Demigods
supplement.

i.e.
the “Fourth Book” of pseudo-Agrippa.

While not a complete anachronism—Calmar’s last known writings postdate the Dee-Kelly spirit actions byover a decade—it is highly implausible that anyone outside Dee and Kelly’s immediate circle would have evenheard of, still less have access to the writings of the “Angelick language,” prior to the publication of the
Trueand Faithful Relation
, nearly sixty years after Calmar’s disappearance.

[This
 
is
 
technically
 
speaking
 
a
 
work
 
of
 
destruction.
 
No
 
moral
 
inference
 
should
 
 be
 
drawn
 
from
 
this
 
statement;
 
after
 
all,
 
one
 
may
 
use
 
a
 
directed
 
 burst
 
of
 
radiation
 
to
 
destroy
 
a
 
cancer.]
 
Set
 
up
 
circle
 
with
 
double
octagram
 
/
 
tesseract
 
design.
 
Octarine
 
lamps
 
at
 
8
 
points.
 
The
 
circle
 
needs
 
to
 
 be
 
 big
 
enough
 
for
 
all
 
required
 
movements
 
 
at
 
least
 
18’
 
diameter,
 
preferably
 
more.
 
The
 
ritual
 
should
 
 be
 
conducted
 
out
 
of
 
doors,
 
on
 
open
 
ground
 
with
 
line
 
of
 
sight
 
to
 
the
 
target.
 
Mark
 
outside
 
the
 
circle
 
a
 
parabola,
 
with
 
its
 
axis
 
pointing
 
towards
 
the
 
target.
4
 
It
 
should
 
 be
 
made
 
about
 
as
 
wide
 
as
 
the
 
circle.
 
At
 
focus
 
of
 
curve
 
place
 
something
 
marked
 
with
 
the
 
character
 
of
 
Azathoth.
 
Copious
 
quantities
 
of
 
incense
 
 burning
 
next
 
to
 
it,
 
producing
 
thick
 
clouds
 
of
 
smoke.
 
Around
 
the
 
edge
 
of
 
the
 
curve,
 
on
 
the
 
outside,
 
are
 
written
 
various
 
Names
 
of
 
Power
 
interspersed
 
with
 
Elder
 
Signs.
 
There
 
are
 
three
 
principal
 
officers,
 
who
 
are
 
not
 
to
 
 be
 
named;
 
to
 
conceal
 
their
 
identities
 
they
 
are
 
here
 
denoted
 
Harry,
 
Colin
 
and
 
Nigel
 
(this
 
is
 
not
 
to
 
imply
 
that
 
all,
 
or
 
indeed
 
any,
 
need
 
to
 
 be
 
male).
5
 
Throughout
 
the
 
ritual
 
they
 
stand
 
close
 
in
 
to
 
the
 
centre
 
unless
 
otherwise
 
instructed,
 
and
 
when
 
not
 
moving
 
face
 
towards
 
the
 
centre.
 
Harry
 
and
 
Nigel
 
face
 
each
 
other;
 
Harry
 
is
 
90°
 
clockwise
 
round
 
from
 
Colin.
 
They
 
maintain
 
these
 
relative
 
positions
 
unless
 
otherwise
 
instructed.
 
A
 
ritual
 
sword
 
is
 
required,
 
initially
 
placed
 
at
 
the
 
centre
 
of
 
the
 
circle.
 
Any
 
remaining
 
participants
 
are
 
collectively
 
referred
 
to
 
as
 
the
 
Companions
 
of
 
Art.
 
These
 
act
 
as
 
a
 
‘chorus.’
 
They
 
initially
 
stand
 
around
 
the
 
inside
 
of
 
the
 
Circle.
 
4
Alternatively, if this can be managed with sufficient precision, as part of an ellipse where the target is at onefocus and the sigil placed at the other.
5
A similar-sounding female name may be substituted if any of the officers are women. There may be mysteriesconcealed in the initials of these names, though frankly I doubt it. While gender-inclusive nomenclature is to be preferred if there is no good reason in terms of the structure or symbolism of the ritual why a particular officer should be a specific gender (I have occasionally been at rituals where the third officer was designated “Maiden”for no particularly good reason, and at least one where this office was filled by a man), in this instance part of the point was to avoid any indication of one of the three being ‘chief,’ &c.
