Conjuration of the Dead God

May NAMMTAR open my eyes that I may see
May NAMMTAR open my ears that I may hear
May NAMMTAR open my nose that I may sense his approach
May NAMMTAR open my mouth that my voice will be heard to the far reaches of the Earth
May NAMMTAR strengthen my right hand that I shall be strong, to keep the Dead under my power, under my very power.

I conjure Thee, O Ancestor of the Gods!
I summon Thee, Creature of Darkness, by the Works of Darkness!
I summon Thee, Creature of Hatred, by the Works of Hatred!
I summon Thee, Creature of Wastes, by the Rite of the Wastes!
I summon Thee, Creature of Pain, by the words of Pain!
I summon thee and call Thee forth, from Thy abode in Darkness!
I Evoke Thee from Thy resting place in the bowels of the Earth!
I summon Thine eyes to behold the Brightness of my Wand, which is full of the Fire of Life!
I conjure Thee, O Ancestor of the Gods!
I summon Thee, Creature of Darkness, by the Works of Darkness!
I summon Thee, Creature of Hatred, by the Works of Hatred!
I summon Thee, Creature of the Wastes, by the Rites of Waste!
I summon Thee, Creature of Pain, by the Words of Pain!

By the Four SquarePillars of Earth that support the Sky, May they stand fast against Them that desire to harm me!
I evoke Thee and Thine ears to hear the Word that is never spoken, except by Thy Father, the Eldest of All Who Know Age.

The Word that Binds and Commands is my Word!

IA!  IA!  IA!  NNGI BANNA BARRA IA!
IARRUGISHGARRAGNARAB!

I conjure Thee, O Ancestor of the Gods!
I summon Thee, Creature of Darkness, by the Works of Darkness!
I summon Thee, Creature of Hatred, by the Works of Hatred!
I summon Thee, Creature of the Wastes, by the Rites of the Waste!
I summon Thee, Creature of Pain, by the Words of Pain!
I summon Thee, and call Thee Forth, from Thy abode in Darkness!
I evoke Thee from Thy resting place in the Bowles of the Earth!

May The Dead Rise!
May The Dead Rise And Smell The Incense!

And this shall be recited only once, and if the God does not appear, do not persist, but finish the rite quietly, for it means that He hath been summoned elsewhere, or is engaged in some Work which is better left undisturbed.
