Regnum Congo

The infamous Plate XII by artist Theodore de Bry

based on material from Delta Green by Dennis Detwiller, Adam Scott Glancy, and John Tynes;
and "The Picture in the House" by H.P. Lovecraft

This book of antediluvian aspect, bound in leather with metal fittings, was originally written in Latin by Pigafetta from the sailor Lopex's supposed observations. It was later translated into German and printed in Frankfurt in 1598. The scholarship of the illustrators (the brothers de Bry) is questionable, and the engravings are thought to have been drawn purely from imagination, as they depict fantastical creatures and Africans with clearly Caucasian features.

The above plate shows the ageless cannibal Anziques, patrons to Karotechia Triumverate member Reinhard Galt. The copy of Regnum Congo described in Lovecraft's story falls open to this page, unnerving the narrator and casting allusions as to the diet of the book's owner.

Statistics for Regnum Congo were created by Adam Scott Glancy and can be found in Delta Green, as can the Anzique spells Consume Memories, Enchant Ring of the Anziques, and Food of Life.
