    So I just found this picture and was wondering if there was any examples of how you could make things subtly wrong in a horror game? The teeth in that statue are from dead people.

    this might not be possible without lots of images, but if you want something to be disguised as a human, but wrong somehow, mess with the proportions. Find a book about drawing the human body, or just something on a website. there will always be a section on the proportions of the body. fuck with those.

    The general shapes can be changed too. Make sure the limbs do not taper, that they're just cylinders instead.

    In short, uncanny valley up in this bitch.

    Spot checks (or equivalent) to notice these things, or mention them offhand in the middle of a long description. Being asked to roll frequently will hopefully make them a bit paranoid.

    First, a hollow is created in the trunk of a large tree. The body of the child is placed inside along with coconut fibers and then the hollow is boarded up. Over the decades, the tree will absorb the body into its trunk and be merged with it. This is appealing to the Tana Toraja people still regard the place as sacred as the newborn child was.

    The mentioning things in the middle of stuff always works if not overused.

    "You walk into an old and musty room. Obviously it was the library in some long ago time, but now it molders in the middle of the house unused. The children are screaming. The walls lined with books smell of decay, yet most seem to be readable. There are large, once comfortable chairs spread around a fireplace on the far side of the room. Help they are in pain. 2 oak doors carved with symbols of avenging angels are on the left and right walls, flanked by further book cases. The carpet's colour is discoloured but you can tell it was once a rich red"

    And yes this is overly long, you would in theory go a long time without doing it again, and deny ever saying those things if questioned.

    Ya it works surprising well. VERY hard to pull off sometimes though. You have to really poker face this one. Best used when there isn't actually anything that can harm the players in the vicinity, since they will be on alert even if you deny you said it.

    Alternatively if you're describing a real life eldritch abomination you can simply refuse to describe it. Something like "you get a vague sense of green, hate and claws, but your mind refuses to acknowledge the rest"

    finding it out later is the terrifying part.

    like the story about the man lost in the woods in winter, he finds a desolate deserted cabin and bursts inside looking for shelter. Partially frozen from the cold he wanders around the house, he calls for anybody who may be home, but the only thing he finds in the poorly-lit house is large, extremely realistic portraits of somewhat creepy people hanging on the walls. Overcome by fatigue decides to leave a note or something in the morning thanking them for their hospitality. Fitfully he falls alseep, the paintings seem to be staring at him but he turns over and falls fast asleep.
    He wakes in the morning to bright light and warmth on his face. He opens his eyes and sees... the walls, with large uncovered windows.

    ok, you want to know what the single most underused horror tactic is?
    It's the scary demon face or some shit that was there all along and you didn't notice it. Or it's there and whoever you're there doesn't notice it. There's no "shock", just the "oh god am I seeing this??"

    I watched a horror movie when I was young, in one scene a woman takes a flashlight to the back door of this old house and quickly scans the edge of the forest that lined the house's backyard, to prove that "no, there are no monsters out there. Come on."
    As the circle of light sweeps over the trees, even though it was done quite fast, we saw, in those trees... a face, jaws open, screaming silently, teeth bared, their bloody eyes staring, it was fucking unmistakable. But it was only there for a moment but you know you saw it. I mean, you think you saw it. No, you were DEAD SURE you saw it. That was the terror, true terror.

    Or another movie, this one involving aliens. The movie is shot from the perspective of a home camcorder, and the cameraman sets it down on his family as they're about to sit down and enjoy thanksgiving supper. You don't focus on the black, uncovered windows, and what is staring in through them, until the power cuts and suddenly the distant house porch light illuminates the aliens standing at their windows from behind, and they slowly slink off, so slowly that if you weren't looking you'd never notice them at all.
    That was fucking terrorizing because you didn't know if you were supposed to see that or not.

    along this line of scary shit out in the open, I'd just love to see someone expand on the idea of those number stations, you know the kind, you need a special radio to pick up on them and all you hear when you tune into these radio stations is the long-playing loop tape of somebody speaking numbers over and over and over. Or strange, metallic music, like someone was taking an old microphone to a broken music box.
    Somewhere, there's a broadcasting station, and some tape has been forever spinning over and over for 30, 40, 50 odd years, playing the same things on repeat to nobody. Their recipients are long gone, yet they continue. Nomatter what you do you'll never find out what these tapes, broadcast over your heads at all time of day and night, mean. They could be anything, and they are.

    Listen to some on youtube. they're scary. Bonus points if you can sit through all of the Swedish Rhapsody and not freak the fuck out.

    Hint at things, but have an actual reason or an explanation behind your implications. There's a difference between "don't show the shark" and "don't bother designing a shark in the first place if you're not going to have it on camera." It's a lot easier to keep your hints and implications consistent and make them actually build tension if there really is a unifying reason or revelation behind them, even if the revelation or reason aren't horrifying in and of themselves. If your cause of horror sucks or is anticlimactic, then don't show it or reveal it directly, but keep it there and keep it in mind nontheless. Sauron was omnipresent and plot-central during LOTR, but he was a sucky character so keeping him in the background and having other people vaguely describe him works better than the anticlimax that actually having him appear would have been.

    A quick question: Iamgine x as a single ray on a number line that goes on forever: Infinity, basically.

    But imagine a vertex, where x is equal to to everything on the inside of the vertex's curve. It appears, quite clearly to be a larger amount of numbers then the ray. But it is also infinity.

    Is one of the infinities larger then the other?

    here's the bomb I'm about to drop.

    This image... this image here. I cannot stare at it for more than a few moments. It haunts my brain, even now just choosing the file from a bunch of thumbnails. I can't see this at 100% zoom. I don't know why but it's wrong. This image is wrong, what it portrays just ... it ... I don't know. It scares me on a primal level I cannot explain. Way, way deep down, a part of my animal self tells me that it wants to hurt me or is about to attack me. I just can't explain it.

    official source is that it's just a really horrible "police crime suspect recreation drawing from witness description", but it is still terrifying to me for a reason I can't explain.
    I hope you feel the same horror I do. Good luck, I'm out of this thread, now.

    Think about it. What happens when you're unconscious? Well... nothing, because when you're unconscious you're not aware, unless you're dreaming. If you're asleep and not dreaming, you perceive nothing. So I'd guess death is like that. You never perceive anything again.

    Think of it from their point of view. I'll use a metaphor.

    Imagine you're a kid, but not just any kid, you're the child of the Spy, and you've gotten a hold of his Cloak and Dagger, a watch that allows you to stay invisible as long as you stay still.

    You decide that the thing to do is to look at some ants, since you don't move a whole lot when you do that. The ants can clearly tell you're there, but you don't know that, you're like five and as far as you're concerned, you're just like dad.

    Suddenly, out of nowhere, you notice an ant has begun to crawl up your leg and is nearing the bottom of your pants, so obviously you squash it. It was bothering you, and it's something trivial its mind is so primitive compared to yours, and killing it was so easy, it just came naturally, a reflex, really.

    That's what I mean.

    Death is death. Your body ceases to function. Your heart stops, your brain shuts down, and you shit and piss your pants if you had the fortune of dying clothed.

    Barring the intervention of a higher power, it wouldn't really be like sleep, it really wouldn't even be like an unending oblivion. You are simply over. You get nothing. What used to be your mind is no longer.

    I played the greatest prank ever in the world.

    My room mate was up late at night reading about this creepy shit, and he went to the bathroom. I snuck out of my room, and put a picture of a somewhat inadvertently scary staring face from a magazine page and taped it to the inside of his door. He goes back in, shuts the door, sees the face, screams like a fucking 10 year old girl, it was fucking glorious. He hated me for like a week before he admitted how awesome a prank it was.

    I've discussed this before on other boards, but as a kid I had a recurring nightmare. And by recurring, I mean it would happen every single night without fail. It was vivid beyond imagining, and it always consisted of me falling asleep, only to "wake up" in my own bed. The dream house was identical to my own down to the last detail--if a window had been opened, it remained open, if a light was on or off it remained as such. I could even draw myself notes using pictures (attempts to read written language ended in garbled failure).

    I could go on at length about all the horrible things wrong with my Other House, but one of the worst was what my subconscious did to the living room. From every darkened corner, every innocuous crevice between seat cushions or under furniture, countless hands lurked in waiting. The moment I came near they would all slowly unfurl, like that footage you sometimes see of plants being recorded growing over the course of several weeks. And then they would wave about in the air, attached to boneless meaty tendrils instead of arms, like a cornfield bending to and fro in the wind.

    I'm reading this thread along with an archived one linked earlier. I can't turn my music off. The silence would drive me mad.
    But whatever I listen to haunts me. Something about whatever I turn on gets me in someway. My headset's left ear is dead, too.
    The window minorly reflects the shelves behind me.
    Whenever a car drives by the branches on the light light up a bit. If I was to look out the doorway into a hall, I would see the bathroom with the mirror staring at me.
    My hat is giving me slight tunnel vision.
    I'm thirsty. I want to get up and get something.

    I've always wanted to run a zompocalypse game, but instead of the zombies being runners or shamblers or "lots of stupid zombies with the occasionall boss zombie", make them intelligent. They're more like ghouls than zombies. They keep their mind, but lose the ability to empathise and gain a powerful hunger for human flesh.

    Shortly after they turn, before they start rotting, they just look like pale people. They can talk, think, use tools, all that sort of thing. I'd love to run a game where as the group are trying to sleep they hear scratching at the door and a whinging, raspy voice saying "I'm so hungry... please... just a little... oh god it hurts, just a little bit please..." constantly.

    I remember being scared at night as a child of the thing with one eye.

    One day my father said, "Why can't you sleep?"
    I replied, "The thing with one eye."

    As she scampers off, you peer after her, stopping momentarily. You catch a faint glimpse of something shining, trailing upward from her neck. And then she's gone, around a bend and hidden by the shadows of the trees. This street has always been poorly lit. For some reason, thinking that makes you feel better.

    Alright. I'll give a heads up now that it might not seem as frightening reading it as it was for me experiencing it, but keep this in mind:

    For a period of five years, starting when I was six and ending when I was about eleven, I had this same dream. 365 days a year, without fail. Just to put it in perspective.

    >"Waking Up"

    This was always the most disturbing part, because I could never be entirely sure which house I was in, the Real One or the Other. When I tell you it felt completely real, you'll have to take my word for it. I eventually learned to pick up on subtle visual cues, but for the most part the two were indistinguishable until...

    >The First Step

    Like all children, I had a monster under my bed. It was a spiteful, arrogant thing. If I lingered too long, it would begin whispering things. Taunting and tempting me. In all my years in that place I never once saw it in its entirety, just a set of arms and massive hands coated in grubby flesh riddled with patches of necrosis. It was always a bit of a contest: Could I make a leap from the bed without being caught by him, while still being quiet enough to keep from alerting the House? My results varied. Unpleasantly.

    "-Try being subtle. Not everything creepy will be obvious to the pc's, some will be minor notes in your descriptions. Some pc's will recognize it, some will just let it pass on, until eventually things keep occurring and they realize that this whole time some fucked up shits been going on around them. The realization that you've been completely unaware of something/someone creepy as shit for a very long time is good to get them unsettled."

    See, the thing I need to impress upon you is just how real this place was to me as a child. If I was caught, there were consequences. Because if I was caught, I would be killed in ways that a five year old shouldn't even be capable of imagining. And if I was killed, I would feel pain.

    REAL pain, like fire shooting up my back in agonizing waves. Where ever I was attacked, I would feel it as though it had actually happened. Many a night was spent waking up screaming or simply whimpering. I was terrified. In retrospect, I probably should have told my parents about the pain thing.

    You make an abrupt about-face, turning on your heel. She can't be far now. Might as well follow her, since you haven't anything better to do.

    You set off down the sidewalk, in the opposite direction, every step taking you further from home. The streetlights brighten the ground in patches, leaving the spaces between all the darker. Your thoughts flicker to the pen-light on your keychain, but it certainly wouldn't be of much help here. Nothing to be afraid of, anyway.

    You round her corner, pulling your jacket tight around you, eyes searching the space ahead. Then you see her. Sitting on her haunches, just before you, barely lit by the edge of the streetlight's glow. Grinning, head tilted slightly to one side. Her chain glitters, waving in the wind, disappearing somewhere up past where your eyes can see.

    Her grin widens. "Curious?"

    That's actually not true. He painted Saturn Devouring his Son above his seat at his dinning room table. When he'd have a meal everyone would have to see it but his seat was the only one that didn't.

    However, I've checked your story and it seems as if his dining room faced in an odd direction compared to his bedroom so he could see it from his bed. I had never heard that before, instead I had always heard the dinner-table story.

    "Hee Hee... I thought so." Impossibly, her grin becomes still wider, her face seeming to stretch to accommodate an increasing number of teeth. Spiny. Sharp. They remind you of a certain something...

    Ah, yes, that was it.

    "A cousin, would you believe?" she says happily, shaking in a kind of halting laughter, "Storybooks and fairy tales. My how you amuse yourselves."

    Your palms itch. The buzz of the streetlights is deafening. The chain twists around itself, knotting like a pretzel. Your chest is pounding.

    You step forward, almost involuntarily, legs moving thoughtlessly ahead. She shakes her head as if in pity, hair falling around her face in just the right way to catch the light. Around her neck is a thin black band, marred only by the metallic loop that tugs at it from the back. The chain stops moving. She looks up, teeth bared.

    "I like you," she says, "But it isn't time. You won't like what you see." She rises, and bends down as if she's about to run, and, for the first time you can remember, her mouth opens.

    You back away, slowly, forcing yourself to stay under control. It takes all you have not to break into a run when she growls. She inches forward, moving carefully, silently, fingers unfolding as she pads across the sidewalk. You move faster, eyes locked on hers, heart feeling like it will explode at any moment. Then the chain pulls taut, and you see something behind it.

    You run.

    A door slams. Locks turn. Heavy footfalls make the steps creak like they're screaming. You're in bed, gripping a flashlight like it was the only thing between you and Hell. Your chest hurts.

    But you'll be ready someday.

    Thanks, I need to head off and was hoping it would still be around for me to peruse in the future. Good show /tg/.

    One last pitch: someone on here once linked me to some stuff by a really terrifying composer or music writer, whose work involved a lot of experiments with dissonance and early electronic stuff, a lot of eerie but moving soundscapes. I could have sworn that he was somehow involved in 2001: a Space Odyssey and/or Planet of the Apes, but I couldn't find him on those leads (I'm definitely not talking about Jerry Goldsmith).

    Does someone, by some wild chance, know who I'm talking about? His stuff was brickshittingly creepy and painful yet fascinating to listen to; someone in that thread asked why I would listen to this for pleasure and I compared it to eating spicy food.

    Oh shit, that was mine! I just reading this thread and thinking of the Creepy Moments docs. Hell I even opened the second one (the first document got way too big, I had to start a second) and added a few things from this thread.

    Are the rapidshares of those suckers still up?

    Did that thread about the guy who made a game about people exploring Mars get archived? He had the sounds of planets and shit for added effects.

    I have this Truman Show fear, that everyone deceives me. One of the most horrific dreams I had was about monsters that would hypnotize you and give you small cuts and punctures with their needle-like fingers until you died. For you they would seem just like normal people, shaking your hand or patting your back.
    Another common fear I think is of being cornered, with no means of escape. Ever had a nightmare where you were running from hordes of animated dead, make a series of bad choices and end up in a bathroom with a window too small to escape through? You hide in a stall, but they sense you, crash through the flimsy door. As they are about to grab you, you wake up, scared as fuck?

    I remember that game. I remember overall how much I wanted to box the open-mouthed ones (that one.) The rest weren't scary, but that one was so terrifying I just wanted to beat the shit out of it to de-power it.

    I can't go out no more.
    There's a man by the door
    in a raincoat
    smoking a cigarette.


    I've put him in my diary
    and the mailers are all lined up
    on the bed, bloody in the glow
    of the bar sign next door.

    He knows that if I die
    (or even drop out of sight)
    the diary goes and everyone knows
    the CIA's iin Virgina.

    500 mailers bought from
    500 drug counters each one different
    and 500 notebooks
    with 500 pages in every one.

    I am prepared.

    I can see him from up here.
    His cigarette winks from just
    above his trenchcoat collar
    and somewhere there's a man on a subway
    sitting under a Black Velvet ad thinking my name.

    Men have discussed me in back rooms.
    If the phone rings there's only dead breath.
    In the bar across the street a snubnose
    revolver has changed hands in the men's room.
    Each bullet has my name on it.
    My name is written in black files
    and looked up in newspaper morgues.

    My mother's been investigated;
    thank God she's dead.

    They have writing samples
    and examine the back loops of pees
    and the crosses of tees.

    My brother's with them, did I tell you?
    His wife is Russian and he
    keeps asking me to fill out forms.
    I have it in my diary.
    do you listen:
    you must listen.

    I think my posting of the Amnesia related pictures was a bit wrong actually.
    I don't think any of the things in the game is subtly wrong now that I think of it... everything is blatantly wrong and ohgodthetorturechambers.
    Still, it's horror.

    In the rain, at the bus stop,
    black crows with black umbrellas
    pretend to look at their watches, but
    it's not raining. Their eyes are silver dollars.
    Some are scholars in the pay of the FBI
    most are foreigners who pour through
    our streets. I fooled them
    got off the bus at 25th and Lex
    where a cabby watched me over his newspaper.

    In the room above me an old woman
    has put and electric suction cup on her floor.
    It sends out rays through my light fixture
    and now I write in the dark
    by the bar sign's glow.
    I tell you I know.

    They sent me a dog with brown spots
    and a radio cobweb in it's nose.
    I drowned it in the sink and wrote it up
    in folder GAMMA.

    I don't look in the mailbox anymore.
    The greeting cards are letter bombs.

    (Step away! Goddam you!
    Step awat, I know tall people!
    I tell you I know very tall people!)

    The luncheonette is laid with talking floors
    and the waitress says it was salt but I know arsenic
    when it's put before me. And the yellow taste of mustard
    to mask the bitter odor of almonds.

    I have seen strange lights in the sky.
    Last night a dark man with no face crawled through nine miles
    of sewer to surface in my toilet, listening
    for phone calls through cheap wood with
    chrome ears.
    I tell you man, I hear.

    I saw his muddy handprints
    on the porcelain.

    I don't answer the phone now,
    have I told you that?

    They are planning to flood the earth with sludge.
    They are planning break-ins.

    They have got physicians
    advocating weird sex positions.
    They are making addictive laxatives
    and suppositories that burn.
    They know how to put out the sun
    with blowguns.

    I pack myself in ice--have I told you that?
    It obviates their infrascopes.
    I know chants and I wear charms.
    You may think you have me but I could destroy you
    any second now.

    Any second now.

    Any second now.

    Would you like some coffee, my love?

    Did I tell you I can't go out no more?
    There's a man by the door
    in a raincoat.

    Silence all sounds. Close your eyes. Breath deeply.
    Bring your focus inwards, see the darkness.
    Now focus on the space directly behind your head.
    Try to see it, with your minds eye.
    Try, try, try, see the darkness, the gaps in your perception.
    Can you feel it?
    That hole?
    Try to look into the hole. Between worlds, between perception.
    Its there. Its always been there. You just never noticed.
    But now its noticed you.
    Your hurting it, by looking at it, thinking about it.

    Don't look. Don't turn around. It will get you.

    I, personally, would have it that every tooth in that mouth comes from a separate dead person. Those things should be scattered around towns, the wilderness, everywhere. They're constructed by the local people, who have some... odd... views regarding what happens after death. They believe that dead spirits seek to regain the feelings and senses they experienced in life, and that a free dead spirit will attempt to possess anyone it can. In order to prevent this, they set up those wooden statues. Whenever someone dies, they add a single tooth from that person's mouth to one of those statues. If there aren't any spare, they build a new one.
    They believe that the spirits are, during the daytime, banished by the light of the sun, unless they can hide in something. They spirits of the dead are drawn to the wooden statue their tooth is in, preventing them from possessing anyone else, but are bound by the wooden frame, so they cannot move. They get to experience some sensations however, the wind on their bodies, the smells, and so forth, so at least they get some pleasure from it. They just stand there, watching. But sometimes, for reasons no-one seems fully able to explain, they just move. No-one ever sees them do this, of course. Vandals or pranksters are a fairly common explanation. But, other times, they seem to end up in places that it should simply not be possible for one of those wooden bodies to be transported. And other times, the positioning of the limbs or the arrangement of the paint seems to have changed. The places they are found in are also somewhat unusual. Looking into someone's window, for instance, or waiting near a busy restaurant.
    This is becoming more and more common.
