Have you seen the yellow sign?
Really well done, this reminds me of the one idea for a hobgoblin empire in pathfinder

I like your vision of Hastur and your drawing is very well detailed. ^^

Ambrose Bierce - "An Inhabitant of Carcosa"
Robert Chambers - "The Yellow Sign" and other tales of "The King in Yellow"
H.P. Lovecraft - mentioned in "The Whisperer in Darkness"but Hastur never used.
August Derleth - "the Return of Hastur","The Trail of Cthulhu"

Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.

Stranger: Indeed?


Cassilda: Indeed it's time. We have all laid aside disguise but you.


Stranger: I wear no mask.


Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!
