Nyarlathotep[1] is one of the Outer Gods of the Dark Tapestry who takes on thousands of forms, each having its own cult, symbol, and favoured weapon. The god's most notorious forms on Golarion are known as the humanoid Black Pharaoh and the Haunter of the Dark, a bat-like entity with a tri-lobed burning eye.[2]

The Church

Worshippers of Nyarlathotep believe he is the Outer God who ties together the worship of the Great Old Ones. They also believe he will open the doors to the uncaring light of the stars. Common worshippers are assassins, poisoners, and demagogues to bring about the deaths of kings and reformers, moving the world towards chaos.[3]
