Octobernomicon. Oct 24: The Headless Horseman

“Though the night was dark and dismal, yet the form of the unknown might now in some degree be ascertained. He appeared to be a horseman of large dimensions, and mounted on a black horse of powerful frame…mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveler in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless! but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle!” — Washington Irving, the Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Octobernomicon, Oct 23: Custodes

“…he approached to study them with his electric light. But when he saw what they were he shrank away shuddering…”

Octobernomicon, Oct 22: Imperfects

“…Marinus Bicknell Willet was sorry that he looked again; for surgeon and veteran of the dissecting-room though he was, he has not been the same since. It is hard to explain just how a single sight of a tangible object with measurable dimensions could so shake and change a man; and we may only say there is about certain outlines and entities a power of symbolism and suggestion which acts frightfully on a sensitive thinker’s perspective…”
— HP Lovecraft, the Case of Charles Dexter Ward

Octobernomicon, Oct 21: The Martin’s Beach Monster

“The object was some fifty feet in length, of roughly cylindrical shape, and about teen feet in diameter. It was unmistakably a gilled fish in its major affiliation; but with certain curious modifications, such as rudimentary forelegs and six-toed feet in pace of pectoral fins, which prompted the widest speculation. Its extraordinary mouth, its thick and scaly hide, and its single, deep-set eye were wonders scarcely less remarkable than its colossal dimensions…”
— HP Lovecraft and Sonia H. Green, the Horror at Martin’s Beach.

Octobernomicon, Oct 20: Black Winged Ones

All denied a part in the ritual murders, and averred that
the killing had been done by Black Winged Ones which had
come to them from their immemorial meeting-place
in the haunted wood.

Octobernomicon, Oct 19: The Hierophants

He indeed went so far as to hint of the faint beating of
great wings, and of a glimpse of shining eyes and
a mountainous white bulk beyond the remotest trees but
I suppose he had been hearing too much native superstition.

Octobernomicon, Oct 18: The Unnamable

“No – it wasn’t that way at all. It
was everywhere – a gelatin – a slime yet it
had shapes, a thousand shapes of horror beyond
all memory. There were eyes – and a blemish.
It was the pit – the maelstrom – the ultimate
abomination. Carter, it was the unnamable!

Octobernomicon, Oct 17: The Bunnyman

The Bunnyman, Unique Entity

Northern Virginia is haunted by an almost absurd serial-killer; almost absurd, if not for the terror he has inflicted over several generations. Details on the origin of the Bunnyman are as vague as they are varied. Some say he was a child who murdered the classmates who relentlessly and brutally bullied him; others say he was an escaped mental-patient. A more chilling story was that the Bunnyman was once a loving father and devouted husband who, on Halloween, discovered his children were the result of his wife’s infidelity. He snapped, murdering his family and leaving their bodies for horrified trick-or-treaters. Despite varying stories, on detail remains the same: the Bunnyman wears a ridiculous pink bunny costume, covered in bloody stains and filth.

Octobernomicon, Oct 16: The Pope Lick Monster

The Pope Lick Monster, Lesser Independent Race

Named for the creek outside of Louisville, KY the monster is said to haunt, the Pope Lick Monster appears as something of a hybrid between man and goat. Like the satyr of Greek myth, the Pope Likc Monster carries itself on powerful goat-legs, covered in albino fur. The upper body is the grostesquely deformed torso of a man. The skin is alabaster, except in places where the flesh is tight over bone, which show black through the ghostly skin. The face resembles humanity, but it clearly not; the black eyes are too far apart, the nose too aquiline, and the thick jaw sticks out too far. Short, but sharp horns protrude from its forehead, just below the hairline. The hair atop the head is long, greasy, and matted, matching the fur on its legs.
