THE SCARLET EDDA

The Evocation of Althazon


by ALLEN MACKEY

Note: From the modern translation of The Scarlet Edda, by the


occultist Doreal in 1945 with a limited-edition of 244. Several copies
are now preserved in some of the secret libraries of the Naacal
Brotherhood, around Mount Shasta in California and in a temple
located in a remote corner of the Far East (possibly Yian-Ho).
Undoubtedly the sages of ancient Lemuria had only used this
evocation sparingly, due to the inherent risk of annoying the old gods,
who would simply vaporize a follower who became too pesky. (Or so
the cautionary texts claim--!)

The Evocation of Althazon

In the Hour of Badlax, on the Day of Aedir, the lone prophet shall
already have fasted for a week. He will have also prepared an altar
upon the top of a mountain in the standard fashion. Whilst facing
eastward shall the prophet draw a summoning Circle and Triangle of
the Magical Art. Within the Circle shall be inscribed the Seal of
Althazon.

Messenger. Unfortunately, for the present, this Lemurian Sigil must
remain unseen.]

Strike the eastern Triangle with the Staff of Calling, made of Jannibar
wood and inscribed upon each side with the intricate glyphs and
symbols of Gorm's Geometries.

are small and circular. Again, for the present, these ancient Lemurian
symbols must remain unseen.]
Upon the third strike, howl into the wind:

Kree'Som En'Nah Kree'Dominus En-Krin!

O Althazon! The Divine Messenger!

Eye beseech thee, by the Unknown One

O Lord, attend this invitation to come

And hold converse with this one.

I am your mouth and your voice,

I come to carry the words forth

To the young ears of men, even as you

Carry all praises with haste to GORM!

Commentary: This is yet another Lin Carter tribute, based on his


iteration of the Lemurian Mythos, a sub-set of the Cthulhu Mythos.
All of the Lemurian Fragments will eventually be collected in one
volume. Wait for it!
