Heroes of Kadath – “Frights”
“Fright” – Those from Kadath and its surroundings are not all monsters. But they do all tend to be monstrous or, failing that, somehow off, wrong in a way that is hard to quantify with casual observation. These dreamlands are the oldest, with residents that in some circumstances have lived there for centuries, long after their deaths on Earth. Their dream lives (or after lives) are lived in the shadow of Kadath, home to ancient dream-gods as well as Nyarlhotep itself. When discussing amongst themselves, assuming they are human or at least human-like Imaginaries, Frights generally self-identify with their home region – West, South, East, North, or the Underworld. The darker, inhuman residents (gods or demons or their servitors, as you like) generally identify with their race’s patron being.
