The Flame of Time
33 Within the Authority a yearning arose, for ‘Face to gaze upon Face;’ and wished to behold another, so it withdrew from one place.
34 A void appeared in which the mirror of existence could be manifested, his perfect mate, Anesidora.
35 The one thing he asked of her was to never open The Cradle, proclaiming that it was incomplete; eventually the temptation prevailed.
36 After she opened The Cradle, The Authority murdered Anesidora, his wife.
37 In doing so he became Hypnos.
38 Three children crawled from her dead body, the Oneiroi.
39 Hypnos split the verse and gave one half to the Lethe, and one half to the Illithids; proclaiming that the son to conquer his side first would be granted both Worlds.
40 By knowing all, they would be like their father, a god; Apathy versus Curiosity given that the last son was born lame.
41 All of existence is locked away in The Cradle.
A passage from the Illithid Genesis story, echoed in the back of our Heroes’ Minds, telepathically from Eldranoth, throughout the night they found themselves in the burning crumbling Brighton Asylum, Hospital and Sanitarium.
