An interesting minor god, but his minons are going to be rather short lived, given how fast sunset moves across the world. He might be able to always outrun the sun, but his minions are not so lucky :)
Or do they simply take cover and wait for the night to return?
A low end god that is sure to be feared by all who become aware of his existence. An interesting enhancement a GM can easily drop into their fantasy game with minimal effort.
(I was going put some ideas here but will add them as ideas to the sub itself, very inspirations and unique!)
Word reaches a character one of their relatives (or a romantic interest) died in their sleep while having a horrible nightmare and now their soul resides within one of Tihewgoe creations.
Attempting to find and free the spirit is a matter of familial obligation, perhaps with the possiblity of resurrection of their loved one if the spirit can be recovered in time.
The Cult of Nightmares
While Tihewgoe doesn't actively seek followers, a group of mostly harmless cultists who have become aware of his existance have beugn to worship him anyway, some even enjoying the terror his nightmares inflict upon them. (similar to how people enjoy hearing ghost/horror stories around the campfire for the thrill of it.)
This cult of nightmare lovers is now the object of latest thrill within the city, a challenge to all those who feel themselves brave enough to endure the dark embrace of the mystically chained Foadjik the cult keep in thrall in their underground resting place.
Those who can subject themselves to their nightmares and not wake screaming or wet clothes are given the highest honor among their fellow brave hearts; and treated with the respect often reserved for veteran warriors. (Indeed a visit to the cult of nightmares is even rumored to be a rite of passage among some mercenary groups and knight orders.
More recently there have been rumors of the cult drugging members sick and close to death into a coma, then exposing them to the Foadjik until their passing, praying for Tihewgoe to extend his blessings and create yet another of his minions.
Excellent writeup, Drackler. Not every being must be of world-shattering proportions in order to be useful or make a game enjoyable. Sometimes a little subtlety can kick off larger events or have just enough impact to affect an important outcome.
I very nice look at a minor god / large being that answered any questions I had about him as it went. His usefulness is limited since, as is stated, he can only exist in darkness. Perhaps he has caught something, some trinket or person, and is running around the world with them in constant darkness. Would make for an interesting quest, always being in shadow and facing creatures of the night.
Nice. I've found that I've become a fan of rules-lite games as I've gotten older and have to juggle around the rest of my life. On first glance the system seems good, although I'd have to play it to say for sure. The zombie aspect is good and gives it a strong focus.
And, I agree; clowns are creepy.
