Nightgaunt - Bring your Nightmares to life with this Dreadful Lovecraftian Monster for D&D 5e

Hello everyone, Originating from the twisted subconscious of a Great One, these uncouth creatures are the manifestation of its will. With their smooth, faceless bodies these nightmarish beings are a force to be reckoned with.

What I find truly amusing about these monsters, is that in the original story by Lovecraft, they torment you in dreams – by tickling you – which is not all that terrifying. Which is why I opted to give them more nimble and violent powers.

They devour the raw emotions of their prey, preying on their victims' darkest fears through vivid nightmares. And if you’re not terrified enough, they will make sure that you are by the end of the night, no matter how painful that might be. This ability may or may not have been inspired by dementors from Harry Potter, these guys terrified me as a kid watching the movie.

Take Care!
