Plastic Wax Factory Vol 06 13 - NODENS

NODENS. Being who is often placed among the Elder Gods, and indeed may be the most famous of them. Nodens bears special love for dreamers and visionaries. He has been known to take such individuals on trips with him across space and time. He is also the lord of the nightgaunts, though at times his power over them seems limited. According to some, Nodens last came to Earth billions of years in the past and was worshiped by certain beings of which we know nothing. He left when the Great Old Ones arrived, and he and his worshipers made their way to the far future, when Nodens would once again walk the lands of Earth. This myth holds that Nodens and Yog-Sothoth are opposed to one another. This is hard to reconcile with the other known manifestations of Nodens, unless Nodens has avatars that visit our planet periodically. In other stories, the gods of Earth have entrusted Nodens with guarding the prisons of the Great Old Ones. There will come a time, though, when Nodens himself will cease his vigilance and sleep. Then the Great Old Ones will be freed from their tombs. The Atlanteans worshiped Nodens under the name Chozzar, God of Magic, and the Druids also paid him homage as the "serpent of waters". His temple at Lydney, England may be found by the dying, upon whom Nodens may bestow healing — at a high price. A pillar found near the town of Caermaen names Nodens in connection with what might be a mating ritual, but it is unknown whether the god endorsed or protected against those involved. A small modern cult sees Nodens as a hunter, emulating him by periodically tracking and killing cultists of other faiths. One researcher claimed Nodens was identical with Satan, though this seems unlikely. [Little information on Nodens exists. He might be a form of Nud or Lud or Nuada, one of the former heads of the Celtic pantheon. This god lost his arm in battle, and a silver one was forged for him. Due to his disability, however, he stepped down as head of the Celtic gods. He might have had a holy site in Lydney, on the banks of the Severn River, though inscriptions to other gods have also been found there.
