Quote1 The stars are trailing cloud of sin while heroes drowse and dream. as temples crack and tumble in, mad holy men blaspheme. behold the soul's dark night being-- yob-haggoth rules supreme!' Quote2
-- The vision of Nestoriamus
 

Yob-Haggoth the Dark One was worshiped as the sole in Kamda Kai, as the single god. Some said it had killed the gods.[2]

It was also invoked by the witch-woman Valena. She invoked it to empower Brak the Barbarian for him to slay a dragon-thing. The spell supposedly helped him to kill the dragon-thing, but forced him to kill any human being he would lay his eyes on for an hour afterwards, or else the monster would rise again.

As Valena tried to have Brak's beautiful friend killed by sending her to Brak during the period he would had been forced to kill her, Brak returned to Valena to kill her, she invoked Yob-Haggoth. A whirling of eldritch smoke appeared, and Brak saw and felt she had great power, but slew her before any harm could happen to him.[1]



Regarding his name, Yob-Haggoth was possibly inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Old One Yog-Sothoth.
