    178.The Corpse Husband
    A Moros alchemist in [Fill-In-The-Blank] has summoned what he thought was a Shade of Stygia, to resurrect his dead Sleepwalker lover. The summoning apparently works, and the two men are reunited...

    ...except that they AREN'T. He did not do his research properly, and reached into the Underworld, instead, and dredged up a shapeshifting horror that was born undead in some unimaginably distant epoch. This creature hides among its prey, feeding on human flesh when possible. If it does not kill every single day, it will fall back into the Underworld. It does...

  • 230.The Sculptor of Enamel
    The Beshilu of [Fill-In-The-Blank] rant and rave, for a "messiah" has come! A thing of lumpen flesh and jagged teeth with an umbilicus leading off to infinity, this toothy abomination is now in the area. She )for it is, at least nominally, female) seeks to create children, but in a womb of enamel, wrenched from the mouths of the dead and dying.

    The Beshilu crowd around her worshipping her as a messiah sent by unknowably mad blind idiot gods, and they have gone on a crazed rampage gathering teeth for "mother".

    What will...

    435.The Great Bear
    A Native American Nosferatu elder, warped and twisted to appear as s gargantuan tardigrade, has emerged from a torpor of over a thousand years. Rendered weak by his long torpor, this Great Bear is lost in a world that makes no sense, where everything he knew as sacrosanct is upended into ruination.

    Unable to find a Touchstone, confused and terrified, the Great Bear's Humanity slowly slips away to nothingness.

    But this is not the end of him. His sentience does not fade. Belial's Brood finds him, and now he hunts the despoilers of everything he...

  • This is effing awesome. Kolduns and Nameless are both really packed with storytelling potential. I can easily, as GM, make really neat antagonists out of both character types.

  • Gender is meaningless to most spirits, unless those spirits are specifically Resonant with a gender (such as a pregnancy-spirit being "female"). This is especially true at Rank 6+, where literal game mechanics no longer completely apply. If Fenris-Ur wants to manifest as female, then it's female...but only for that specific circumstance and time!place.

    104.The Five Frweholds
    Not all changelings who escape from Arcadia have left with compassion intact. Some, in fact, emerge with all conscience scoured away by their Keepers' delicate cruelties.

    One such changeling was an Italian mobster. He thought he was a hardass, he thought he was tough, but Arcadia showed him how wrong he was.

    When he escaped, he just went right back to the life he once led. Gathering likeminded changelings around him, he helped build a Court based on La Cosa Nostra, called the Five Freeholds.

    A den of sociopaths and crooks, the...

  • I picture Soulless Wolf's Place-That-Isn't is a nightmarish labyrinth of Escher-like layout, mixed with the Winchester House and the general vibe and feel of Changeling's the Hesge. (Not that it IS the Hedge, but rather that it shares similarities WITH the Hedge.)

    Here, every door opens to the wrong room, every stairwell is shattered, every tree is rotted and dead and clouds of flies erupt from surfaces seemingly with strategic intent. Navigational magic becomes actively deceptive to the user, and Gifts manifest in twisted ways, even if the werewolf in question is NOT Asah Gadar....

  • Oh, I don't mean that in some campy way. I understand it's clearly s horror game in clearly horror universe. I don't mean costumes and codenames and villains of the week: I mean people with basically superpowers adrift in a world ruled by mad monsters, where the characters are little better than monsters themselves.

  • 110.Mummy/Werewolf
    Something has gone VERY wrong in [Fill-In-The-Blank's werewolf pack's] territory, as undead and seemingly unkillable aberrations appear out of nowhere. Deformed, cancerous and maddened from constant agony, these malformed devils warp and corrupt everything they touch simply by existing.

    How can the pack defeat something that literally never dies? And what about this ebon-skinned Star Pharaoh---clearly a godlike Claimed---that's shown up looking for these unkillable abominations? Is he friend or foe?

  • This thread makes me super-excited about this game. But, basically, am I correct in assuming Deviant is basically superheroes filtered through the lens of horror and without the costumes and codenames? I don't mean this in any negative capacity, nor am I shitting on the concept. Quite the opposite, in fact! I think the two genres could mix EXTREMELY well.

    176.The Well
    A mage buys an old, dilapidated mansion with the intent of turning it into a Sanctum loaded with magical features...and, a week into the mundane side of the remodeling, he finds a well in the basement that seems to be infinitely deep.
    At first fearing it an Avernian Gate or a Schism, the well leads...nowhere. It just keeps going down, into the dark, without end.
    A week later, the mage, using Sleeper climbing gear, a winch and his mastery of Matter magic, plunges into the well's deeps. He then...vanishes.
    Unfortunately, the Hierarch has become Obsessed with...

  • His potions could actually be bottled spirits: drink one, temporarily gain a dot of Influence or a single Numina. You need specific Merits first, however, to make such potions.

    434.Parasite
    The city of [Fill-In-The-Blank] has a picture-perfect Domain: an elder prince, relatively non-contentious primogen and Elysians that are truly respected.

    What no one knows, of course, is that the prince was killed by hunters, and something...else...wears his skin. Something old and hungry and clever dragged itself out of the wet earth, and it has a dire agenda.

    It is not a vampire. It is not some other form of supernatural from any of the other splats. It is something unique, a one-of-a-kind abomination that feeds on vampires. It can wear the skins...

    78.The Labyrinth
    Labyrinths were used in the Eluesiniam Mysteries for centuries throughout Greece, used in rites only barely understand by modern archaeology.

    Several of these labyrinths are of no occult value, but a very rare few of them are Avernian Gates guarded by geists millennia old, older even than the Greeks who built the material world side of the labyrinth. Many of these geists are swollen, obese monsters, strange amalgams of ghost and wild beast, rendered feral and mute over the creeping passage of eons.

    But one labyrinth, as yet known only to Greek Sin-Eaters,...

    103.A Degenerate Beast
    A Dancer Beast that was once a major member of [Fill-In-The-Blank's] freehold, but now, a series of personal disasters has reduced the Feathered Firedancer's Clarity all the way down to 1. She has become dangerously unbalanced, and perceives everything through the lens of her experiences in Arcadia.

    Having murdered several mortals, the Feathered Firedancer must now be brought to heel. The Mask can only cover up so much, and now Huntsmen have been seen in the area.

    175.Ki-En-Gir
    A great victory over a Scelestus archmage has occurred, truly a victory for Supernal Truth! But now comes the TRULY difficult part: sifting through the lore and magical items assembled over nearly a century of Awakened life by an Aswadim. Much of this lore is tainted, but enough of it is salvageable that it bears careful cautious investigation.

    The story of the origins of Sumeria are supposedly revealed, of s land the Scelesti called Ki-En-Gir, a kingdom of blasphemies where worship of the Abyss stood supreme and antinomian sorcery was first learnt.

  • 237)The Door to Hell
    An Uratha pack discover a strange brass door in a Place-That-Isn't, in the Shadow Realm. The Place-That-Isn't itself is a seemingly endless series of office building hallways lot of fluorescent lighting, with stairs that go nowhere, elevators that all end in the same place and a sensation of absolute tedium. This Place-That-Isn't is itself only accessible by carefully searching a certain so-called haunted house in [Fill-in-the-Blank's] projects.

    Barred by powerful rites, getting the brass door open is a quest in and of itself. No other entities exist in...
