{C} Between the lines of Order, lies Chaos. Unspoken chants, unheard whispers, things of a time that never was. The words wither away at the spirit and mind of the unprepared, plunging those who cannot grasp it into the pits of insanity.

{D} A truth and a lie, all at once. An idea inconcievable, a paradox. Sometimes, even order can be unwoven, or chaos be given insight. To the mind of the one who understands that which has no concept, who gives reason to that which has no meaning, sometimes harm and destruction become relative around him.

{A} A boon from madness is perhaps a curse. Or perhaps curses have always been misinterpreted boons. Sometimes secrets are meant to be shared, and there are those deserving of not knowing that they know more than they think they know. And that not knowing becomes some knowledge. And knowledge, well, is power. Even when it isn’t.

{A} The Sorceror King, like certainty, is ever changing. And this eternal change allows for him to sometimes make other things he influences equally relative. Usually, to tip in the favor of that which he is interested in.

{O} Power. Raw, Unrestrained. To have invoked the wrath within Madness is to wish oblivion. For you stared at the abyss and now the abyss is staring right back at you


Yhr’zallus sometimes is interpreted as an old man with a long hood shadowing his appearance, with just a long silvery pale beard falling down from his robes and featuring a large chained necklace with his own symbol, its weight pressing his figure down into a hunched position, as the only thing holding up the Sorcerer-King is his sturdy cane, rumored to have great secrets too dangerous to be known hidden within its rings, were the item to be cut apart. In this rendition, he also carries a large dusty tome of empty pages. Some claim that the contents are not read, nor understood, but rather felt, imagined, smelled, sometimes heard, sometimes all at once.

However, it is not the only interpretation given to Yhr’zallus. Though countless span many a hidden book, there are two others that are popular amongst the followers of the sorceror king. There are those who describe their god as a young maiden, beautiful beyond belief, though the closer one draws to her, the more the form stops making sense. There are those who claim one could witness all emotions at once in her expression, or that the eyes led into a neverending abyss, though those would be the basest of incomprehensible notions about this interpretation of the god.

To some, Yhr’zallus is not capable of being. Some say that the Sorceror King learned how to not be, and yet be, and the closest words to describe the god in mortal eyes would be a sensation, a presence…something that is there, but also isn’t. The pranks the mind plays on itself. A sudden itch inside your body you can’t scratch, a twitch in your eye, an unexplained curiosity…that would be the manifestation of Yhr’zallus itself.

But ultimately, Yhrzallus is truly incomprehensible within a 3D mindset. A more accurate description of what he can truly be transcends its normality. And thus, the truth is that the madgod chooses forms that can be comprehended by both mortal and divine, though not always necessarily for both at the same time, so that he may properly communicate with them rather than just pose utter confusion.

Explaining the Madgod
The inspiration behind Yhr’zallus is that he is very in touch with mortals, though in more subtle ways. Not really a kind of god wants much of a territory of his own. He’s someone who uses his secrets in both detrimental and beneficial ways. For instance, someone communing with him may wish to know a specific secret or attain some power, he would be inclined to grant that person’s wish, though with a twist, given that a mortal’s wish out of nothing but arrogance/greed would be of little interest to Yhr’zallus. He’s the kind that makes people work for their rewards, and learn more of themselves and their wish in the process. That’s a consistent attitude for Yhr’zallus. Someone who values knowledge and guards it, and punishes those who would recklessly seek it, plunging their unprepared minds into madness.

In larger scale matters with the divine and important events, Yhr’zallus is more unpredictable. He isn’t one to often take a side in matters, and most of the times if he does it is through indirect support. Sometimes he may aid another god through their champion, or perhaps by trying to rig the odds in their favor. But I wouldn’t say it is on a whim and inconsistent wholly. If he aids someone in a specific matter, he’ll keep helping, and worst case scenario, withdraw himself back into the shadows. It’s his initiative, the starting choice that would make people wonder where he stands in a matter.
