Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young!
|~ A chant used by mulitple human and nonhuman worshipers.|
Shub-Niggurath is one of the Outer Gods from the works of H.P. Lovecraft and is described as "The Black Goat In The Woods With A Thousand Young" - although technically without gender this Outer God is often labelled as female and takes on a maternal role, giving birth to many offspring that resemble strange walking trees (or worse, depending on the breed).
She is the spouse of Yog-Sothoth who is the mother of Nug and Yeb and the grandmother of Cthulhu.
Like most of Lovecraft's deities, Shub-Niggurath is neither fully good nor evil but amoral, yet her presence inspires madness and degeneration in human beings and is completely alien to them; thus she and her kind are feared and maligned by most humans.
