Something I’ve been wondering since TSW, the preacher at the clubhouse rants about St. Toad and his/her/their cracked chimes. Any Ideas?
XXV. St. Toad’s
“Beware St. Toad’s cracked chimes!” I heard him scream
As I plunged into those mad lanes that wind
In labyrinths obscure and undefined
South of the river where old centuries dream.
He was a furtive figure, bent and ragged,
And in a flash had staggered out of sight,
So still I burrowed onward in the night
Toward where more roof-lines rose, malign and jagged.
No guide-book told of what was lurking here—
But now I heard another old man shriek:
“Beware St.Toad’s cracked chimes!” And growing weak,
I paused, when a third greybeard croaked in fear:
“Beware St. Toad’s cracked chimes!” Aghast, I fled—
Till suddenly that black spire loomed ahead.

So, a Thing (Tsathoggua). Or a Place (a black spire named St. Toad). Maybe both!

Q: Why do you dream of the stars that scream?
A: Feels good, man.
i’d say both.
For instance, a reference to the Orochi and the Tower. If a certain fearful pervert had not hopped off the tracks, he would have ended up there, right?
It’s hard to rely on his good intentions, when his head’s full of things that he can’t mention.
