Primus: The Book of Shadows
Hugh Lyons was one of the most influential mages of the golden era. He was instrumental in banishing the avatar of Nylarthotep that attempted to invade the world of Primus.
In his later years, Hugh Lyons became a lich, though it was against his will. Hugh spent most of his time as a lich attempting to reverse the process.
Several mages rallied to Hugh’s cause of Knowledge in the defense of mankind. As sorcery began to retreat from Primus and Hugh’s passing they came to be known as the Hugonaughts.
