some random locations in arkham

Post by hastur » Sun Dec 15, 2013 4:25 am

  1. A decadent speakeasy on Parsonage Street. A frayed rope descends through a hole cut into the floor.
  2. The Miskatonic University Exhibit Museum on College Street. Several corpses surround a bizarre idol, recently acquired by an expedition to Mesopotamia.
  3. An abandoned mill six miles northwest of Arkham. A mutilated corpse is tied to a chair.
  4. The Prosper farm, three miles northeast of Arkham. The field has been abused by colossal hooves and strewn with trampled corpses.
  5. A derelict warehouse on River Street. Several corpses are chained to the walls, completely drained of blood.
  6. The Miskatonic University Library on College Street. Someone has scrawled "Beware the shadows" on the wall.
  7. St. Mary's Hospital on West Street. A concealed trapdoor in the morgue leads down to a labyrinth of hewn tunnels encrusted with grave mold.
  8. On the road to Innsmouth. The corpse of a man hangs from a covered bridge, covered with a foul slime mold.
  9. The Kelvin farm, about a mile northeast of Arkham. The farmer's plow has unearthed a colossal stone engraved with impossible geometric patterns.
  10. A derelict fishing boat docked at Innsmouth. A corpse lies on the deck, warped and deformed almost beyond recognition.

  1. Somewhere deep within the French Alps. A blade-like spire of quartz stands here, engraved with endless spirals.
  2. A gloomy alley in Manchester, England. Someone has scrawled "Never sleep" on a wall.
  3. An ancient tomb beneath the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, France. Several corpses are impaled on jagged spears of stone, each branded with a different eldritch symbol.
  4. A winding alley in Edinburgh, Scotland. A trail of blood leads to an open manhole.
  5. A grand theatre in Toulouse, France. An entire wall has been torn away by some terrible force.
  6. A derelict home in Venice, Italy. A corpse is chained to a wall, its flesh engraved with bizarre glyphs.
  7. A burnt-out castle in the Rhein River valley of Germany. There is an abandoned motorcar here, surrounded by bullet casings.
  8. A ruined abbey near London, England. A corpse lies on the floor, cruelly tortured to death.
  9. A labyrinthine private library in Munich, Germany. Someone has scrawled a map of strange stars and constellations on the wall.
  10. The Biblioteca Nacional de Espana in Madrid, Spain. The library is warded against intruders by a phantasmal guardian, bound to an eldritch tome.

alien worlds (aka paul atreides gets eaten by a dhole)

Post by hastur » Sun Dec 29, 2013 10:12 am

  1. Llachanath, an eldritch world of writhing forests and oceans of foul slime beneath a sky of lightning. A blade-like spire of diamond stands here, filled with continually shifting colors.
  2. Yiggubbosh, a fell world of dark forests and vast wastes. A monstrous city looms ahead, inhabited by vampiric shape-shifting creatures.
  3. Gheemogua, an ancient world of thorny forests and deserts of shattered bone lit by a cold and distant sun. It is inhabited by malevolent reptilian creatures which worship Daoloth.
  4. Yngagoth, a doomed world of thorny forests and desiccating wastes lit by a baleful red sun. A bizarre tower stands here, each stone engraved with eldritch glyphs.
  5. Kad-Rhaggua, a vast world of writhing jungles and mires of noxious ooze lit by a cold and distant sun. A shifting mass of living nightmare lurks in a pit, amidst sickening ooze and vapors.
not as happy with this set, i think because of the repetitiveness of the format. also, none of them so far worship me. oh well.

anywhere on earth

  1. A hewn cavern beneath the Fimbulheimen of Antarctica. The floor is flooded with an alien ichor.
  2. An ancient tomb beneath the ruins of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan Peninsula. The corpse of a willowy woman hangs from above, her flesh engraved with alien symbols.
  3. An uncharted island in the Arabian Sea. A trail of blood leads into a dark lake surrounded by a miasma of noxious vapors.
  4. A somber private library in Cardiff, Wales. A metal cylinder with three curious sockets set in a triangle has been left upon a desk.
  5. Somewhere deep within the Australian Outback. An oasis of thin water reflects strange stars and constellations.
  6. A neglected workhouse in London, England. A locked steel cabinet contains a yithian temporal communicator.
  7. A river gorge in the Andes Mountains of Venezuela. Nine large blocks of stone stand here, arranged in a V-pattern.
  8. A derelict farm near Dublin, Ireland. A massive crater has been blasted in the field, exposing an ancient obsidian cyst, now broken open.
  9. A cluttered antiquarian shop in Alexandria, Egypt. A copy of The Lost Continent lies open on the desk, next to a journal of notes and translations.
  10. Somewhere deep within the Great Salt Desert of Persia. A trail of strange marks leads to the entrance to an ancient subterranean city.
