Arkham Horror | Published 31 January 2013

“Suddenly, without a warning sound in the dark, Carter felt his curved scimitar drawn stealthily out of his belt by some unseen hand. Then he heard it clatter down over the rocks below. And between him and the Milky Way he thought he saw a very terrible outline of something noxiously thin and horned and tailed and bat-winged. Other things, too, had begun to blot out patches of stars west of him, as if a flock of vague entities were flapping thickly and silently out of that inaccessible cave in the face of the precipice. Then a sort of cold rubbery arm seized his neck and something else seized his feet, and he was lifted inconsiderately up and swung about in space. Another minute and the stars were gone, and Carter knew that the night-gaunts had got him.”
      –H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

The Stuff of Nightmares

“They made no sound at all themselves, and even their membranous wings were silent. They were frightfully cold and damp and slippery, and their paws kneaded one detestably.”
      –H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Born of H.P. Lovecraft’s childhood nightmares, Nightgaunts are silent, flying killers, prone to descend from a blackened sky to steal their victims into the night. In a letter to a friend, Lovecraft himself wrote, “when I was 6 or 7 I used to be tormented constantly with a peculiar type of recurrent nightmare in which a monstrous race of entities (called by me 'night-gaunts'—I don't know where I got hold of the name) used to snatch me up [and] carry me off...”

Now, this monstrous race has sprung from Lovecraft’s tormented mind and into reality, where they’re sure to terrorize your investigators! Their thin, black, slippery features are represented in impressive detail in this professionally painted miniature.
