Bolothamogg, "Him Who Watches from Beyond the Stars", was a primal force or entity (Elder Evil) that sought to protect the Far Realm from the "taint" of the other dimensions. "The Darkness between the Stars" was honored by the Aboleths by leaving large gaps and empty spaces in their architecture and by constructing large open buildings.[1] Bolothamogg had made some sort of alliance with the demon lord Areex, whom he ordered to venture "Beyond the Stars" to pay the price of their deal.[2] Perhaps Bolothamogg was just another name for the Outer God Yog-Sothoth, "The Key and the Gate"[1], which was known from the writings of H. P. Lovecraft[2].[1]
