The Colossus From Hell

No one could say there hadn’t been signs of warning. Ever since the new skyscraper was raised the city had changed. The vast increase in reports of missing persons should by itself have been enough for the authorities to take action. The Dagherion Tower – instantly nicknamed the Devil’s Building, and later The Dark Cloister - had not only been the centre of many weird events and extraordinary sounds, but had also literally emptied every block surrounding it, causing shops to close and firms to look for office space elsewhere.

As usual though, the cases were sloppily investigated, and the forces put in place to uphold order were too busy elsewhere. But then again, what could they have done? After all, the last department with knowledge enough to deal with the matter closed down in 1890. Necromancy and Demonology simply did not exist in contemporary consciousness. Not until right now.

They had managed to summon an Ancient One. A Ghartharian Rox, the most massive of furies in the nine levels of Hell had arrived. Everyone beheld it with utter presence. Fear was the name of the day. We all stood still and stared at what was left of reality, and we all knew; there would be no memories of this day.

I don't care who you are, if you see this thing in reality, you WILL shit your pants. Even if you're wearing a dress, the dress will turn into pants so you can shit them. Repeatedly.
