Beksinski is the only person I can think of whose art is too bleak for 40k.

He could not paint for them. The rule book would drive children to suicide by looking at it for too long.

When ever I read about the Realm of Choas it is always, in my mind, seen through his style of art.

And on the actual, original point of this thread; I don't think Beksinski would be a good fit for 40k. They're both bleak and hopeless, true, but in 40k the horror is in the form of actively malevolent entities, which can potentially be fought and killed. Beksinski isn't like that at all. A Beksinski 40k would be unrecognizable as 40k.

Well, my idea goes that it's more about awakening in a bleak world, where it's not so much frightening outright as much as simply... desolate, eerie, slightly wrong. Faceless figures sitting in the sand, bony appendages digging in the dust, slow, deliberate movements. Nothing threathening. There is no threat, there is no real concept of time. This eerie world just is. And the players would wander through this land, not really knowing much about themselves. It's the land testing them, making them find out who they are, their reactions to the unfamiliar, the odd that slowly shapes them.

It's funny how Beksinski's gallery and the looping melody on his website can send my mind traveling so far. His stuff is fascinating.

This is semi-related, but I'm going to be running a low-magic fantasy campaign where early on the game is historical Not-Europe. Halfway through, something will happen that"ll cause a ton of horrific shit to appear. Demons, spirits, and just plain shit that shouldn't exist. It'd practically be the apocalypse.

Visual novel from grorious nippon. Main character has severe brain injury, sees everything as rotting meat and mind-bending abominations, and can barely even understand what people say. The only thing that doesn't look horrific is a little girl named Saya.

Spoilers: Saya is a horrific eldritch abomination from space. Just looking at her makes most people go insane. Main character does not initially question her nature, just being glad to be able to talk to someone normal, but eventually figures out, but doesn't really care.

Story follows their life together, and the people around them, with 2 total choices and 3 possible endings. It can be completed in a few hours.

It's generally considered one of the more fucked-up games out there, dealing with such themes as pedophilia, cannibalism, rape, etc.

Kabbalism is an occult tradition deriving from Hebrew mythology. Vampires, along with several other varieties of supernatural creature, are held to be unable to cross running water. Many Chinese demons are said to be scared of loud noises, although that's typically associated with firecrackers. The fire and light should be obvious.
But for the most part I made shit up.

>> No.29976248


Running water is a barrier to many evil spirits. Kabbalistic symbols are similar in religious symbols to their ability to turn away evil. Bells and wind chimes are said to be anathema to evil spirits too when they ring. Red is almost universally a repellant for supernatural entities, from what I know of mythology it's because it reminds them of hellfire or something. Light in general is viewed as beneficial, what with humanity fearing the dark. Don't know about the "plants that do not exist anywhere else"

In one ending she releases spores into the atmosphere, killing herself, to turn every human into horrific abominations like herself, so that the main character will be happy - since they'll appear as normal humans to him

It is sad. Very sad, because she's clearly sentient and lonely - the MC is the only one who doesn't immediately go insane upon seeing her (and that's because he's already insane).

The entire point of the story seems to be to make you identify and sympathize with the MC and Saya, who commit some rather horrific acts together.

I dunno, I thought it was less horrific than the one where Saya turns every human on earth into a creature like her.

Best ending was undoubtedly the "bad" ending, where the main character asks Saya to fix him, then turns himself into the police and is thrown in an insane asylum for the rest of his life.

His friends (and the rest of the world) were able to keep living normally, at least. At least, we assume so - Saya is still at large.

I dunno about anyone else, but that VN is probably one of the few "love stories" that really touched my heart (talking about the ending where Saya and Fuminori succeed).

When you think about it, Saya's only goal- her singular purpose- is to propagate her species. They look horrifying and gruesome to humans, but from a different perspective they are a massively powerful and integrated biological computer which assimilates its components without killing them (recall that Saya was capable of computing incredibly high prime numbers- and she was just one tiny instance of her kind). This state of being doesn't necessarily need to be a living hell or even unpleasant, evidenced by the doctor maintaining her individual consciousness through the part of her transformation that was depicted.

The ending where she dissipates into spores and infects the planet is the beginning of a unified planetary being that is capable of kindness and love thanks to Saya's time with Fuminori. The idea that contact with humans and their concept of love could so profoundly alter such a powerful organism for the better is seriously moving.
