The Unknowing is the ritual The Stranger and its allied Entities wish to complete that will change reality enough for the Entity to come through and create the world to its own likeness. It features several players and items of power, and, unlike many other rituals, it can only be disrupted while It is being conducted, as the players may be replaced. It is also called "The Dance".
The Circus was working to bring about this ritual.
The most recent Unkowing was attempted on August 7 2017, at the House of Wax museum in Great Yarmouth, England by Nikola Orsinov and allies. It was stopped by Jonathan Sims, Timothy Stoker, Basira Hussain, and Alice "Daisy" Tonner. (MAG 119)
