Slenderman

This is not at all RPG-related.

I have been drawn into the most bizarre youtube series ever, called Marble Hornets. I don't know how to describe it, other than that it's not very creepy until you're alone in your room, trying to sleep, and trying not to freak out that a faceless, silent thing is watching you through your windows, or is in your room standing over you.

Start from the introduction. It takes a few entries to get really creepy, but when it does, it'll lurk in the back of your head every time you're alone.

Scary stuff.

  1. Yeah, this is looking awesome already.

    One of my favorite sites for stuff like this is:

    If you have never been to it it offers these strange interactive art films. 'Floppy' was my first favorite and 'The Flat' is one of the creepiest things I have ever seen.

    Also if you like horror you should check out Fewdio. They have a page at Youtube (I hope they still do) and their short films are excellent.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was looking for something to watch and bored with all my selections this evening. Now I'm set :)

  5. Hey, you're welcome guys. :)

    And yeah, when I first saw that guy in #18 I seriously jumped straight out of my chair.

    Just something about a silent, lurking, faceless guy is naturally horrifying. Right before I go to sleep, sometimes I see movement out of the corner of my eye and if it wasn't for the fact that my cat sleeps on my bed (and that's she's a big pansy and would run away at the first movement that wasn't me) then I'm not sure I would be getting much sleep. :)

    You can also check out Everyman HYBRID. I haven't watched it but people mention it when Marble Hornets comes up and it's supposed to be pretty good.

D&D is a game about resources

Sometimes it pretends to be a game about stories, or adventures, but it isn’t. It’s a game about what you have- hit points, weapons, armor,...
