You summon Yog-Sothoth through the gate into your plane of existence, where its influence manifests centered on the gate. Yog-Sothoth can then allow through whatever other creatures or other Elder Influence from beyond it desires.

The primary caster must be an outer spawn of Yog-Sothoth.

Halfway through the spellcasting, a 20-foot-radius circle of eldritch fire appears centered on the gate. This fire lasts for the duration and deals 6d6 fire damage to any creature that begins its turn in it or passes through it. At the completion of the spell, Yog-Sothoth appears unharmed amid the flames.
