What are some of your favorit horror words?

13 posts in this topic

I'm actually running a dark heresy campaign, but the foul horrors of chaos are sometimes quite lovecraftian. So what words are some of your favorite to describe the horrors from beyond?

And maybe... what do they mean?

I kinda like Lothesome as a descriptor but I'm trying to think of a way to describe how wrong the chaos tainted language might sound. And how they might experience their brain boiling away if they try to understand it.

You should read Shoggoth's Old Peculiar, a short story by Neil Gaiman. There's a whole discussion of HP Lovecraft's literary style, it reminded me of your post

I always liked how environments were "basalt" and "cyclopean".  Feels tall and unsettling.

Gibbering.

Squamous.

Sklitch.

 How about 'blood curdling'?  I'm not sure what curdling is exactly, but I know for a fact I don't want my blood to start doing it.
