The Elder Stain
The Outer Gods such as Azathoth, Yog-Sothoth, Ubbo-Sathla, Yidhra, the Nameless Mist (Nyog’ Sothep), Abhoth, the Hydra, Ghroth and Daoloth are vastly more powerful than the Great Old Ones and function on a cosmic scale. The delineation between the Outer Gods and the Great Old Ones is not always clear, and some scholars do not recognize the distinction at all. Some argue that they are the same race, but that the Old ones are trapped within our plane while the Outer (or Other) gods are free to roam the multiverse. They are served by Nyarlathotep, also known as the Crawling Chaos.Nyarlathotep has many names and many masks such as the ‘Black Man’ of the witch-cult, Azathoth’s idiot flute-player or the Black Egyptian Pharaoh.
