Ecology: Hunting horrors may be native to Earth's Dreamlands or they may come from somewhere else. They are often summoned by various Elder beings to pursue and attack those who have annoyed them.

Personality/Motivation: Most of the time, a hunting horror is summoned for a specific purpose—to chase down someone the summoner wants either captured or destroyed. In either case, the hunting horror will do as it’s bid relentlessly, not stopping pursuit until either it, or its quarry has been destroyed.

Powers/Tactics: Hunting horrors have two main forms of attack—biting, or grappling prey with their prehensile tails. They often grapple with the tail first, and then nip at their victim with a mouthful of sharp teeth. Anything capable of harming a hunting horror while so bound may simply be dropped (usually from a great height).

Appearance: A hunting horror is roughly 40' of black, ropy, serpentine foulness. They have two (or one!) bat-like wings, which they use to fly. Because of their physical make-up, hunting horrors tend to change shape constantly, and are hard to look at for an extended period.

Designer's Notes: Hunting horrors are creatures of the Cthulhu/Dreamlands Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. This design was based upon the hunting horror presented in the 5th Edition of Call of Cthulhu. Hunting Horrors can range in size from Large to Huge. Game Masters may wish to give hunting horrors additional powers, such as a tail slap (i.e. +4d6 HA), various forms of Life Support (Aging, Pressure, Cold), and spells.
