[Ennead Games] Lovecraftian Horror Namer Ennead Games

In some dark corners of the world lie creatures and beings that are almost indescribable. To hear their name is to invoke terror, to see them is to bring madness down on a fragile mortal mind. There are simply things in the universe you were not meant to know. And each of them has a name.

Lovecraftian horror is a subgenre of horror fiction that emphasizes the cosmic horror of the unknown (and in some cases, unknowable) more than gore or other elements of shock though these may still be present. Often, their real form is unconceivable to the fragile human mind and what is seen is merely a glimpse of the true shape of something mortal mankind was not meant to see.

Featuring:

  • 3 x d100 tables that have parts that when combined create the name for your unspeakable horror
  • 1d100 table of examples pre-done names
  • A system for using the existing tables to create expanded and longer names for more options

Sample names that can be made:

  • The Abominable Thing of Lenogguathunzalsogoth
  • The Greater Brute of Omli’khee
  • The Star Horror of Myy-nac’yin

It is advised not to speak these aloud, for there are foul things that can hear their names spoken and will be drawn to them, destroying your sanity and soul

You can buy this product from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He blogs at dave.mcalister.org.uk.
