Combat rating: -4
Defenses: Physical Resistance
Power: Corrupting Text - While Y'Golonac stirs in his slumber, each time an investigator draws a Tome from any deck after dealing out starting equipment (whether he keeps the Tome or not) add one doom token to Y'Golonac's doom track.
Attack: Wounds from Y'Golonac's hands remain open and bleeding. Each investigator loses 1 point of Sanity and/or Stamina, split between the two however he likes. This increases by 1 point each successive round (e.g., 2 points in round two, 3 in round three, etc.).
Doom Track: 12
Y'Golonac's Corrupting Text ability does not trigger if an investigator is instructed to look through a deck and take an item of his choice unless he takes a Tome.
Y'Golonac first appeared in Cold Print (1969), written by Ramsey Campbell.
