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 an 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.
