Originally, the Fairfield Project used column titles from The Unspeakable Oath for a set of manually maintained index pages containing only links to other articles. The present wiki has a tag system instead, so the old indices can be phased out. The ones that are more useful than tags can be compressed into a single page: This one. “It's a process.”
The rustle of page upon page, the musty smell of dust filling your nostrils, strange scratches of ink that fill the mind with inexpressible thoughts and images. The books you find on these pages are not the quiet dull things that sit quietly on your shelves. These are books that have been whispered over, books that have been chased through dark alleys, books that have been killed for. These books contain secrets that were too powerful to be destroyed, too horrible to be forgotten. These are books that have names to be reckoned with, and have taken on lives of their own.
Caveat lector: let the reader beware.

There was a time when we knew where to find the threats to our sanity: in dank, musty forbidden tomes from the old haunted house on the hill. Now these threats are finding all sorts of avenues into our lives. Here are some of the vehicles that have been found to transmit the Mythos to the masses.
These films sometimes depict features of the Mythos, and sometimes only reflect its madness; they are not to be confused with the comparatively harmless recommended watching list.

- Yellow, a video game.
- Memewear, a discussion on fashion.
- Scarred, an MTV program about self-destructive behaviour.
The magic used by the creatures of the Mythos is actually some sort of advanced mathematics that can affect the processes they describe. The strange artefacts that agents encounter are technological, so advanced as to conform to our ideas of magic.
