It is a multi-year story arc[1] and will presumably continue with 2024's content releases.

Marketing MaterialsEdit

The promo letter

Influencers received a letter from Leramil the Wise in advance of the Necrom reveal. When held under a blacklight, the symbol of Hermaeus Mora is revealed.



  • The title of this story arc is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's short story The Shadow over Innsmouth, which the genre of cosmic horror—this story arc's theme—is heavily influenced by.
  • The Crown Store preview description for the Eye of Fate prologue on the Announcement screen refers to the "Secrets of Apocrypha" year-long story. This may have been a working name for the arc when it was only going to span content releases for 2023.
