From goulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night
Good Lord, deliver us! – The Cornish and West Country Litany, 1926
Update: The blog carnival is over – be sure to check out the wrap-up.
Nearly every person has a story of something that caused the hairs on the back of their necks to stand up, some sound that came from under the bed or a noise just outside the window. It was real to them at the time and who knows, maybe it is.
For this month’s entry into the carnival peer into the inky blackness and share what you find there, is it ghost, ghoul, or some creature with long razor sharp nails that leave it’s mark on the wall for us to find in the morning?
Or maybe you’d rather share how a tale like this can be woven into a story line in a campaign. Did you use the story to scare the characters (or maybe even the players)? Was it a plot device? Do tell!
As always, if you decide to partake of the Carnivals delights this month leave a comment below with a link to where we’ll be able to find it so that the stories can be shared an a few more can scream in the night.
Did I hear something or was it my imagination?
I hope my dice roll well!
