NIGHTMARE BEINGS 2016: Part VII
With Artwork by Siadmander!Monsters and villains from your creepiest dreams!
I know it only has a "goat like skull," but I find myself wanting to just call this monster a goat. How do you know it's not the most correct goat? It might be all the other goats that have it all wrong.
It's interesting how much video games can creep into our subconscious logic. I've had similar dreams where I just keep "respawning" to try things slightly different, until I get them right, I give up, or the dream ends.
Another of those dream monsters with a classic sort of urban legend feel to it. I can easily imagine a small town circulating tales of The Rivet Man, with conflicting descriptions and origins. What's especially interesting however, in this particular instance, is how the monster might relate to the machine apparently created to whipe the whole town off the map.
This is one of the shortest "narratives" ever posted to these, but it feels like it's all the better that way. Do we NEED this headless boy of worms to do anything other than exist, wear a bad shirt, and say "I am your sin?" I don't think I'd ever want more context than that.
SEND IT, BRO
Likewise, any explanation for why this thing ever would or could exist might only subtract from its sublime majesty. I'm glad Crocuta narrowly escaped such a horrific demise, but who knows how many other poor souls were crushed in the mindless, senseless rampage of SEND IT BRO, which I declare to be the beast's actual name, sorry.
