Lovecraftian horror is a sub-genre of horror fiction which emphasizes the cosmic horror of the unknown (in some cases, unknowable). It is named after American author H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937).

[close] ❝ That is not dead which can eternal lie. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ ━━━━━━━━━━━━━ And with strange aeons even death may die. ❞ Arkham, Massachusetts. Home to the renown Miskatonic University. In this town, Paranoia and Fear are like drugs, not sold in alley ways or in deals made in the shadows. They are spread though emails and texts. By the light of a moon and around campfires, they are shared. What the residence of the Essex county of Massachusetts do not know is that these terrors they tell each other to get off on the chill....do exist. Speak of the Devil, and He shall appear; speak of evils and horrors unknown and they come knocking at your front door.

[close] CONGRATULATIONS! You are among the small population of preternaturally gifted individuals capable of projecting your consciousness into the Dreamlands. But, be warned: the name is misleading, it is a world where nightmares come to life. Here, one takes on a new identity, either a warrior, assassin, mage, ranger, or cleric. When the sun goes down, they must fight to survive, or their bodies on Earth become comatose. And with hostile forces ranging from an organization of assassins to an infamous necromancer, death is all too real. Will you make it though the night? Time to DREAM.
