Exorcising the Shub-Niggurath

The Instruction of Gula Bau
The Blessed Mara of Nippur
The Blessed Mara did not consider this apparition as particularly
fearsome. She saw little difficulty in exorcising the hellish
sponge/cloud-like entity Shub-Niggurath, something that struck
terror into other hearts

This set of rock drawings (pisanitsa) was discovered in 1999 near Zhorozero
Lake, Leningradskaya Oblast, Russia. The petroglyphs have been dated
approximately to the 4th and 5th millennium BC. There are about 200 different
drawings at the site. Their meaning is not yet deciphered. Some of them are
estimated to represent unholy rites connected to Shub-Niggurath, The Black
Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young.

Shub-Niggurath is an Outer God in the pantheon. She is a perverse fertility
deity said to appear as an enormous cloudy mass which extrudes black
tentacles, slime-dripping mouths, and short, writhing goat legs. Small
creatures are spat forth, which are either reconsumed into the miasmatic
form or escape to some monstrous life elsewhere.
The Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath are horrifying, pitch-black
monstrosities, seemingly made of ropy tentacles. They stand as tall as a
tree (perhaps between twelve and twenty feet tall) on a pair of stumpy,
hoofed legs. A mass of tentacles protrudes from their trunks where a head
would normally be, and puckered maws, dripping green goo, cover their
2

flanks. The monsters roughly resemble trees in silhouette — the trunks
being the short legs and the tops of the trees represented by the ropy,
branching bodies.
“Be thou most vigilant against the Udug of Tiamat and the oppressors of Shub-Nigurrab” ~
The Invocation of the North Gate.

Second Testimony & Exorcism Spell of the Mad Arab
“And I have seen them in their rites, and the awful things they call forth from the lands
beyond time. I have seen the signs carved upon their stones, their altars. I have seen the sign
of Pazuzu, and Zaled, and those of Xastur and Azag-Thoth, and similarly those of
Ishnigarrab and the awful offspring of the goat, and the terrible musicks of their race. Seek
ever to hold back the Powers of the Cults of the ancient Worship, that they might not grow
strong on their blood, and on their sacrifice. By their wounds shall ye know them, and by
their smell, for they are not born as men, but in some other fashion; by some corruption of
3

seed or spirit that has given them other properties than those we are familiar with. And they
like the Dark Places best; for their God is a Worm.
IA! SHADDUYA IA! BARRA! BARRA! IA KANPA! IA KANPA!
ISHNIGARRAB! IA! NNGI IA! IA!”
“Shub-Niggurath appears as an alien, sanity-shaking immense blob of living tissue and mist
with tentacles, hooves, eyes, fanged mouths and other deformities protruding from every
surface. She resides in what is known as the Dark Tapestry: the darkness between the stars
where inhabitants of Golarion believe true madness lies”~ Pathfinder Wiki

THE INSTRUCTION OF GULA BAU 17: 1- 12.
Lo! Fear not the bubbling cloud with many mouths, nay, show neither
angst nor awe should the Utuk of Tiamat, the Shub Nirgal, arise. For
indeed thriveth it upon panic, therefore mayest thou not succour it
therewith. Verily mustest thou mock it, yea, by song and dance mockest
thou it.
When its putrid smell envelopeth a place, when its shadow of terror
falleth upon a village, when its multitude of mouths filleth the sky, when it
droppeth its spawn like rotten fruit, then mustest thou chant:
‘SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH! SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH!
SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH! SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH!’
whilst thou dancest with legs and arms in multiple gestures of mocking.
Yea, by making circular motions with thine hands of which the fingers be
outstretched, by shaking thy pelvis also, thou intonest:
‘SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH! SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH!
SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH! SHUB-BIH-DUH-BIH-DUH-WAH!’
Verily willst thou immobilize the power of Shub Nirgal, indeed waneth it
swiftly and scurrieth back to its pit of murk and shadow.
Moreover to drive away its 1000 spawns, mustest thou add this reprise
to thy song-and-dance, thus:
‘DUH-WAAAH DUH-WAAAH! DUH-WAAAH DUH-WAAAH!’
as thou crossest thine arms with fingers outstretched whilst dancing
fervently.
The Shub and its foul spawn will verily never to return to that place.
