Order Of The Veiled Prophet

Basic Information

A society based in St. Louis, Missouri. It was founded in 1878 and inspired by poems about Hashim ibn Hakim.

They host a yearly "Veiled Prophet's Ball" every December, which has become more private and exclusive over the years since it's initial founding (when it was more like Mardi Gras, if I'm understanding it correctly).


Game and Story Use

  • It is a quasi-secret society with ties to an obscure Persian cult leader and to the upper classes of St. Louis. Perfect as the enemy for an occult/conspiracy/horror game - or as a red herring.
  • Does the name sound to anyone else like it should be associated with The King in Yellow?
