The Eyes of Satan aka The Elder Thing Essence Eyes For Your Old School Campaigns

    Once the Elder Thing essence body jumps it leaves behind its corruption in the host body of its former victim. The eyes may be the window to the soul but these horrors beyond imaging leave some of their corruption & insanity in the corpses of their victims. The terror & corruption of the toad-god Tsathoggua is captured inside the souls of these monsters and spreads through the windows of the souls themselves.

    The eyes of the essences victims retain the visions of all the horrors that the monster has seen & experienced. They float in the eye's fluid surfacing and sinking back into the alien horror's ocular organs. There will incredible secrets and hidden alien truths of the universe waiting to corrupt all who view these discarded organs. They are worth between 60,000 to 90,000 gold pieces each to certain alien alchemists & black wizards. These often mount the eyes into glass globes with a preservative liquid & then a light source is cast behind them to show the procession of forbidden ages of the monster has lived through. A wisdom check must be made for every 1d6 months of using the eyes to ensure the sanity of the wizard or cleric using them doesn't degrade too far.
