To Take Control


We were deep in Mephisto's vault, burgling the Crown of Karsus, when I saw next to the crown that the wily archdevil had a portfolio labelled 'Accelerated Grand Design'. I couldn't resist taking that as well. The portfolio contained plans compiled by a mad alhoon known only as Blue Apex for a version of the illithid resurgence, a Grand Design that called for mass tadpoling of both friends and enemies - but not to convert the tadpoled into mind flayers, but rather to suspend that ceremorphosis under powerful magic to create a vast and unconscious hive mind commanded by an enhanced elder brain. My mind, trained in the tyrannical tenets of Bane, instantly saw that this was a means to perpetrate a powerful religious hoax, a mass movement controlled, ultimately, by none other than myself. For who but the Chosen of Bane could master so grand a scheme?
