Father of Serpents Medallion by JasonMcKittrick Father of Serpents Medallion by JasonMcKittrick

“Yig was a great god. He was bad medicine. He did not forget things. In the autumn his children were hungry and wild, and Yig was hungry and wild, too.” – The Curse of Yig, H.P. Lovecraft


Yig’s chief trait was a relentless devotion to his children and those who were unfortunate or foolish enough to have harmed his serpentine progeny were cursed to a fate worse than death. These poor souls sought out protection from Yig’s wrath in the form of protective charms from Native American tribes who had long known of Yig’s power. Most notable among these charms  was the “Father of Serpents Medallion”.

The “Father of Serpent Medallion” was known to have two functions: The ability to protect when made from jade and the ability to curse when made with vermilion which reflected the positive and negative aspects of Yig.

It's amazing How Ms. Bishop gave H.P.L. only one sentence from which He made that whole tale "The Mound".

I mention "The Mound" because I couldn't remember if it was the same case with "The Horror of Yig" that it was with said "Mound".

Because both were just vague concepts when Zealia gave them to Howard as it were.

You're right - I was thinking of The Gwar Song when I wrote that.
I should probably have rechecked all of this in advance.

"There is an Indian mound near here, which is haunted by a headless ghost. Sometimes it is a woman."

That's 19 words - and Lovecraft made that out into 29,560 page Investigation tale/Spanish Conquistador Epic about a Subterrene Antediluvian Hyper-advanced Society of Decadent Pseudo-human Amerindians.
I think it was vaguely related to That really early tale of his "The Transition of Juan Romero" - which He also recycled elements of into "The Electric Executioner."

My whole point in bring it up was that I think the same method of a brief, vague idea of Bishop's expanded into a Vast Epic by Lovecraft was used for all three of the tales they did together.

So I just want to be clear that this was a relevant thought - it's just I forgot how.
