According to the legend¸ in 1944 the SS built a mysterious device deep in a Silesian mine shaft. Its bell-like shape gave it the nickname "die Glocke¸" or "the Bell¸" but the purpose of "Project Lantern-Bearer" remains a mystery to this day. Was it a time machine? A zero-point energy generator? A gateway to another world? Die Glocke cuts through the legend to the truth - and then piles on a bunch more legend. Plus¸ a look at "die Glocke" as a NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS node¸ a TRAIL OF CTHULHU seed¸ or a ESOTERRORIST black site.
The core of the Bell legend is this. In an abandoned coal mine in Poland¸ the Nazis built Something that violated the laws of orthodox physics. More than that - it blasphemed against them. That Something had the form of a large metal Bell (Glocke in German)¸ and it could have won the War¸ but the Allies closed in. Those who built it were killed¸ and it was taken away to a hidden place where its power slowly poisons any mind that beholds it¸ even now. Where the Bell rested remains a desolate place¸ guarded by a concrete henge.
