    RE: Four Horsemen

    Here are a few new entities. I was playing with the imagery of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse", so I developed several power ghosts that fit into the archetype.
    Specter of Blight
    The Specter of Blight on remembers vague details of its mortal life; she remembers a humble life as a farmer’s wife until a brutal famine ravaged her village until she perished from starvation (along with most of the rest of her village). She haunted her hovel until it burned to the ground many years later. But the ghost has held on to her hunger and despair until

    Re:The Infected

    I have created a few Horrors that are posted up-thread that fit into the idea of Horrors that can infect others. I will link a few below with notes.

    The Clutch: Parasitic infestations are always a good source of body horror. I developed the Clutch to combine the ick factor of a colony of parasitic worms with the Body Snatcher/Possession trope.

    The Maenad Virus: My take on a 28 Days Later rage virus. Rather than making its victim mindlessly feral, it instead lets them retain their faculties, but removes most inhibitions and sense of propriety...

    RE: Goblins



    Not Necessarily.

    "Horrors" by themselves are not a specific creature type (like vampire or werewolf), but a open category of monster that don't fit neatly into an existing gameline. They are intended to allow a storyteller to easily generate antagonists. Its that flexibility that makes it a good choice as the mechanical backing for the diversity of creatures that would be considered Goblins. It is likely they will be using the basic "Horror" framework, with Goblin-specific adjustments (think in the same way ephemeral entities...

    Re: Kong and the Question of Kaiju

    I have seen this question appear from time to time on the boards - how do you create truly Giant Monster in the CofD system. For the most part, the system is not designed to handle interactions of that scale, being geared to a more intimate type of horror than what the "Kaiju" gnere typically present.

    But that being said, here are a few of my ideas on how to mechanically approach such creatures.

    When working with the Size system in CofD, I have found that it is not a linear scale; anything beyond size 20 starts...

    Re: Spring Heeled Jack

    This reminds me to start reading up on more folklore and urban legends for inspiration! This is an excellent write up. At first it seems like there may be too many points invested in skills, but they all work for the concept. I especially like how the description is written from the POV of a field report from some type of agency. Very flavorful.

    Re: New Horror

    Something from my files - this is another "Incarnation" style horror, this time from the Morrigan/Valkyrie archetype.

  • RE: Lovecraftian Magic

    It is good that your have Second Sight, since I recommend using the system presented under "Reality Bending Horrors".
    To update things to 2nd Edition/Chronicles of Darkness, try the following adjustments.

    - Replace Cult of Things That Must Not Be (Second Sight, pg. 137) with Mystery Cult Initiation (CofD, pg. 51-53). Use the benefits granted by the merits to grant abilities in line with the Cult. I will put an example below.


    Cult of the Unnamable
    Dedicated to the veneration of Hastur; the cult embraces entropy,

    RE: Numina

    These are very good Numina. I revised the mechanics of a few of them for my own uses. I am posting my versions below.

    Occult Sight: The entity is sensitive to supernatural phenomena. The entity notices the active use of supernatural abilities within the range of its senses and may make a Finesse roll to approximate its distance and direction. In addition, by spending a point of Essence, it can see through powers of concealment, illusion and deceit with a Clash of Wills using its Rank as its die pool. Lastly, it may mimic the Aura Reading Supernatural Merit,...

    RE: Wasp Woman

    Very nice. A concept so good I wish I had come up with it. I do see you went over the normal attribute/skill thresholds for her Potency, but I figure that is just ST's perogative for a more challenging adversary.

    For the Hive Mind Dread power, rather than a attribute bump/per minion - perhaps tying the power back to other social merits. Perhaps the Horror can split their combined dots in Potency, Retainer and Staff as a bonus to Initiative, Defense, Perception and Skills? As a drawback,perhaps a psychic feedback where each time one of their minions dies,...

    Re: Dullahan
    I didn't read any specific references to the Dullahan using a whip, so I went with the weapon isee with with most in pop-culture. But a well armed monster is always fun! Will put in that update.

    Re: Potency and Willpower
    I keep forgetting that rule! Went through and updated the Horrors that were missing that.

    Re: Saci
    I was a little unfamiliar with the Saci, so that information is very helpful. Saci is now updated!

    Re: Bill Cipher
    I am a big fan of Gravity Falls, but if I had to create stats for Bill (or something similar), I would be more likely to create him as a Ephemeral Creature - his powers, weaknesses and behavior seems more in line with the Ephemeral rules than the Horror rules.

    Re: Leprechauns and Brownies
    In the folklore, Leprechauns are cobblers by trade, which fits since they are often associated with wealth (a upon a time, a persons shoes were likely the most expensive item they owned). And there is many different faeries types that embody the "Industrious House...
