Questions Answered:

I’m curious how to make a campaign truly terrifying. I am currently running a lovecraftian based game, but many lovecraftian horrors are unnameable, indescribable, and unknownable...

I've been running a game for 5 players for a while now, and the players are around level 12. How can I keep combat challenging without making it boring or taking away all their stuff?

Brute Fable:

Enlightenmen

Foulcan

Monster: Desert Wood Woad
