Star Ridge Manor

elderly person in a hospital bed, hooked to machines. They have a horrified expression on their face as something whispy and almost invisible hangs about their head, it’s tendrils reaching into their ears. A disinterested nurse is checking their vitals and doesn’t seem to notice the entity.

Star Ridge Manor is a combined assisted living and memory care facility set on a sprawling old estate atop the local landmark known as Star Ridge. Star Ridge was originally the estate of Dennis Landry, a wealthy local robber baron who occupied it from 1880 until his death in 1925.

Le Lechuza

It has the face of a beautiful woman but with a cold expression on her face and giant black eyes. Scraggly, long black hair hangs from the top of her head. The body is that of a giant owl. Stunted arms cling to its sides, while wings extend from its back. Wicked claws tip the end of its scaled, featherless feet.

In the rafters of the half-fallen barn, we saw her, the source of our torments for almost a year. The flashlight beam fell across the horrid, yet human face. Her black eyes contained all the hatred in the world. If she could have killed us with a simple glare, she would have. She spread her wings, and hissed and clicked, making noises impossible for a human throat. 

Alternative names: Owl Witches

Creeping Shadows

shadowy creatures look like human shapes with dark, torn, ripped shades of black with jagged mouths and soulless eyes. Emerging slowly from a shadow on the wall, its hands gripping the non shadowy parts as if the creature is using it as support to climb out into our dimensional plane of existence

“Shifting Echoes”

“Your shadows, as black as your soul, will leap out and devour you whole.”

—Ms. Onyx

The Alp

A cruel elf sitting on the chest of a woman, it is nude save for a strange triangle shaped hat it is wearing

Alpe, Alpen, Drudge, Mara
alp, or also little alp,
you shall remain no longer 
alp’s sister and father,
you shall go out over the gate;
alp’s mother, trute and mare,
you shall go out to the roof-ridge!
Let the mare not oppress me,
let the trute not pinch me,
let the mare not ride me,
let the mare not mount me!
alp with your crooked nose,
I forbid you to blow on

—Münchener Nachtsegen, a prayer to be said at night.

The Sirens of Dagon

drowned zombie deep one hybrids

When the deep ones pulled back from their Innsmouth “colony” following the US government’s raid in 1928, the connection between the deep one hybrids and the ocean was severed. However, deep one hybrids still feel some connection and are drawn to Innsmouth. They yearn to be themselves rather than “living in someone else’s skin.” Those who grow tired of waiting resign themselves to the waves.

Organ Donor

Yes Ma’m, you were right, of course. There was a guy there, a wizard, sorcerer I guess you want us to call ‘em. Lucky you got that whole armory of weapons left over from the Great War. I was pretty nervous about the whole thing, my first mission. Cedric, Mr. Fong, let me check out two of the 12 gauges, thank God.

The people in the house looked normal, but they still tried to kill us. Had to put ‘em down. That was weird. We found a trap door under a large Oriental rug in the parlor.

People of the Light

People of the Light

A caterpillar. A little brown and black caterpillar, the kind you’d call “wooly bears”. In the dead of winter and cold as ice…Incidentally, you know, the old timers say that the wooly bear caterpillar is a weather prophet. If the brown bands on his fur are narrow, there’s severe weather ahead…This one, you could hardly see the brown bands. Tough weather ahead, that’s what the old timers would say.
