The Yellow Sign
From Tatters of the King
The yellow sign is some sort of occult symbol. Its appearance appears to be related to The King in Yellow. Apparently in Yhtill seeing the yellow sign means that the King in Yellow is about to make an appearance.
Appearances of the Sign
On several occasions the Sign has been seen in unexpected places:
- As part of a piece of graffiti, by Doctor Frederick Bartlett
- On sheet music, in the dreams of Nathaniel Browne
- In the explosion of a firework, again by Browne
The appearance of the Yellow Sign appears to have had a profound effect on some of the viewers of the play, especially Nathaniel Browne. These effects seem to include vivid dreams and even hallucinations.
A yellow sign, painted in blood, was used to open the gates between Leng and Earth.
