Hideous Creatures: Lloigor
“You make the usual mistake — of thinking of them as being like ourselves. They weren’t.” God or monster? Species or phenomenon? Dragon or disc — or discontinuity? Invisible, invulnerable, inexplicable — the vile vortices of the lloigor encompass all and care for nought.
The lloigor are vortices of immaterial vibration in natural form, and completely invisible to human eyes. Thus, describing them can be a challenge. Instead, describe their effects: the lloigor vortex attack, or possibly long-term exposure to lloigor wavelengths, colors water and some jadelike stone a peculiar blue-green tint.
Hideous Creatures: Lloigor includes,
- Full writeup of the Al-Kazimiyah Cult, with eight hooks, and cult reponses
- Keeper clues for every Trail of Cthulhu Investigative ability
- Four mythic echoes from across the world
- Nineteen lloigor variations
- Statistics for Dragon Form lloigor
- And new powers, like Cancerous Growth and Time Fog, with GUMSHOE statistics.
In this series, Kenneth Hite looks at the creatures, species, and monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos from every non-Euclidean angle. Alternate versions and new explanations provide the same jolt of mythic bisociation that the gods and titans receive in the TRAIL OF CTHULHU corebook. Hite traces these foul things through their legendary history, and provides further clues for any Investigator to follow. Horrific scenario seeds burst and bloom, story spines protrude and deform, in a blasphemous garden any Keeper can harvest.
Praise for Hideous Creatures,
“a brief injection of Hite-ian awesome … they’re just about the right length to digest in a single sitting, and full of amazing ideas that will make anyone’s game into a flavourful occult gumbo.” – High Trust, High Drama Blog
“I consider this series a wake-up call to the lacklustre, to remind them tales of the Mythos, using whatever system, should instill uneasiness, upset and fear. Grasp the potential of the unearthly and inhuman…” – Paul Baldowski
