Oh the horror! This illustration is of a semi-corporeal ghost-like undead creature for Call of Cthulhu role-playing game setting. Sometimes intrepid investigators need to enter shunned or abandoned locations – such as derelict mental institutions waiting for their own demise – in hopes of securing some obscure tidbit of information. Sometimes the locations are not that abandoned after all.

An area named Valley of the White Stone just south of Arkham City is justly shunned by locals. The locals know that the wooded patches of the valley are home to unspeakable horrors that appear and disappear perhaps guided by the stars themselves. The woods are quiet and remote for years on end until something triggers the appearance of hideous tentacled monsters seemingly bursting through ground from hell itself.
The locals are wise enough not to build anything – not even wells for agricultural use – near the haunted spots. They avoid the locations based on ancestral knowledge. A traveler from Arkham can’t even get a guide to these locations even if the creatures have been seen last over a decade ago.
