Hideous Creatures: Hounds of Tindalos

HC Hounds cover thumbnail

HIDEOUS CREATURES: HOUNDS OF TINDALOS are lean and athirst! Frank Belknap Long’s greatest creations emerge from the angles of time, slavering and frumious. Are they hell-hounds, haunts, or cold equations? Track the Tindlosi spoor through prehistory and posthumanity, from the Wild Hunt to Cerberus and the howl of Garm.

These lean, ravening creatures dwell at the farthest beginnings of time on this planet, before DNA is formed in the first pools of protein. They do not so much resemble hounds or wolves as they convey to their unlucky viewer an inescapable sense of being hunted.

Hideous Creatures: Hounds of Tindalos includes,

  • four unique scenario seeds, from Fugue in the Key of Dee, to Every Dog Has Its Day, and more
  • keeper clues for every GUMSHOE investigative ability
  • ten mythic echos from across the world,
  • fourteen Hound variations,
  • and new powers, like Fugue, and Clocks, Stop, with GUMSHOE statistics

In this series, Kenneth Hite looks at the creatures, species, and monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos from every non-Euclidean angle. Alternate versions and new explanations provide the same jolt of mythic bisociation that the gods and titans receive in the TRAIL OF CTHULHU corebook. Hite traces these foul things through their legendary history, and provides further clues for any Investigator to follow. Horrific scenario seeds burst and bloom, story spines protrude and deform, in a blasphemous garden any Keeper can harvest.

Praise for Hideous Creatures,

“a brief injection of Hite-ian awesome … they’re just about the right length to digest in a single sitting, and full of amazing ideas that will make anyone’s game into a flavourful occult gumbo.”High Trust, High Drama Blog

“I consider this series a wake-up call to the lacklustre, to remind them tales of the Mythos, using whatever system, should instill uneasiness, upset and fear. Grasp the potential of the unearthly and inhuman…” Paul Baldowski
