The Great Old Ones are poorly understood beings who are said to dwell in the darkness between the stars, a place known as the Dark Tapestry or the Dominion of the Black. What is known is that they are truly ancient, and probably predate not only the world of Golarion but also its more human-like gods. They are thought to be of a vast, alien intelligence which mortals investigate at their own peril. Those who follow them and draw magical power from their worship are almost always insane, believing that these ancient beings will one day return to unmake the world.[1]

The total number of Great Old Ones is unknown, but individual gods are known to include Azathoth, Yog-Sothoth, Shub-Niggurath,[2] Nyarlathotep,[3] and Mhar[4].
