The nature of the Lords of Chaos is unknown, and some of the information in this page might be about many groups, and/or overlap with other groups, such as the Old Ones.

The Chaos Lords, Lords of Chaos, or Lords of Darkness, are one or many types, races or groups of entities, and/or a title for some entites, promoting or personifying Chaos and, at least for some of them, orchestrating the spreading of darkness and evil.

Part or all of the Lords of Chaos were related to the Old Ones (see notes).


500,000 BC

Iao-Thamungazoth was one of the Lords of Chaos and Lords of Darkness worshiped by the Dragon Kings of Lemuria,[1] half a million years ago. The Lords of Darkness were opposed to by the Lords of Light, worshipped by Father Gorm and the Nineteen Gods.[5]

The Dragon-Kings offered him sacrifice to feed their growing power. When the adventurers Sharjsha, Sumia Chond, and Karm Karvus came to the Castle of the Dragon Kings, on the four Dragon Isles of the inland Sea of Neol-Shendis, Sssaaa, High Priest of the Dragon Kings intended to sacrifice the three of them to the Lord of Chaos at the Altar of the Monoliths, to provide them the life-energies they required to cross the intercosmic gulfs to Earth.

As the hour of the equinox came, Sssaaa was about to perform the sacrifice before the Lords of Chaos, whose faces appeared in the sky. The ceremony was interrupted by Thongor, who was soon assisted by Father Gorm who stroke down all the Dragon Kings.[1]
