How would /tg/ combat a skinwalker?
>>24538967What about a Skinwalker who has stitched together many different animal hides in order to become a Chimera?
>>24538967>skinwalker[FEARFUL LEGEND INVOKED]
>>24538967Turn him into an soulforged ashtray in Stygia.
>>24538967Shotgun, apply directly to the face
dont fuck with skinwalkers is how you combat skinwalkers.
>>24538967Make friends with it, try to gain its trust. Learn its weaknesses. Make sure not to get replaced with one.
>>24539138>Make sure not to get replaced with one.How, exactly?Ask it nicely?
>>24538967holy shit that's terrifying.
The same way /tg/ combats every other monstergirl.
>>24538967When I read that I immediately thought>H.P Lovecraft>Cthulhu Mythos
>>24539177I don't know...How can I even be certain I haven't already been replaced by one?
>>24539292do you have a skeleton inside you?
>>24538967White ash, apply directly to the weapon
Anyone got more 2spooky stories like this?
A step by step guide on how to fight anything, by /tg/Step 1: Determine if the enemy is of material (tangible) status. It it isn't, determine if it can materialize itself at will or whether it can be forced to turn solid(ish).Step 2: Send a delegation of bards with alcohol....Step n: Should the previous steps fail, refer to "wizardes, ye olde magicke for dealing withe stuff"
>>24539091>>24538967Well, I'm never going camping again.Thanks /tg/
Here's a /tg/ related NOOOOOOOOPE
>>24538967With Shapechanging and ear to ass ratio modification.
I swear to God, fucking skinwalkers scare the shit out of me. It's the only creepypasta that really gets under my skin (hah! but seriously) on a personal level.
>>24539570Because it has a legitimate chance of being real?I mean on some level there has to be some truth to the fact of people living in the woods, killing people, and wearing their skin as a suit.
>>24539582I don't know. There's just something about it that gets to me. I usually just shrug off creepy stories like witches, finding dead bodies and whatnots, but fucking skinwalkers. They scare me.
>>24539582Well yes and no.The skinwalker story specifically states that the guys buddy was "alien" in a way - mimicking facial features, "learning".The "guy living in woods wearing peoples skins" is more believable then "alien body snatchers integrating into society".>>24539623Faces. Extremely fucked up faces. I rationalise horror to a degree, but when it comes to faces.And I mean like that SCP Coffin object that distorts video cameras and TV's - the distorted face from that. That's when I go NOPE.
>>24539623Imagine it happens to you.Imagine nobody has the slightest clue. You just went out camping yourself one time and came back with a skinwalker inside of you. Nobody would know, but you would be disconnected. Your friendships would die. Your reputation would disappear. You would become a freak, and probably get caught for murder at one point and your parents and friends will believe you were some fucking freak who liked eating people and murdering people and not the truth: that what was controlling you was not you, but something worse. But it's too late, they'll never know.
>>24539655>The skinwalker story specifically states that the guys buddy was "alien" in a way - mimicking facial features, "learning".Some traditional lore (trust me, I live next to a reservation) states that skinwalkers have to wear the 'pelt' of those they wish to become to fully integrate as one. It's very magical and shit, but that's just how it works. Some cultures have a shapeshifting way about it, some are just like the picture: they literally wear the skin and are very, very quick at learning.
>>24539036OH YOU.>That feel when Sam Haight got off easy.
Play along until the time is right, the sooner the better, then destroy it on your own, but always leave traces and clues in case something goes wrong.
>>24539684Hmmmmm....Wonder if I can find out any similar "stories" in Aboriginal culture...Interesting living near a reservation?
Toss live grenades with long fuses underhand to them looking as friendly as possible.If they're your friend, they'll throw the grenade the fuck away.If they're a skinwalker, they'll catch it, inspect it, not know what it does, and get blow'd the fuck up.This method may not work if you have a stupid friend.
>>24539807After a while, you stop having stupid friends.
i live in the tahano reservation and my dads a shaman, hes told me all sorts of shit about skin walkers. best way to find out if someone is or isnt a skin walker is to do like the fellow in OPs pic did, ask it questions it wouldent have the answer to. when it answers wrong blow its brains out and chop it up. then run away as fast as possible because that may not work. oh and that dudes friend is dead as fuck
>>24539940as a side note, when you kill it make sure there is no evidence it was you who did it cause if you are wrong you just murderd your friend with early on set Alzheimers. it sucks when that happens
>>24538967With arms and armor carved out of pumice, and a copious amount of exfoliating bodywash.
>>24539940So I' reading up a little on Navajo skinwalkers and it says that "legend has it that skinwalkers can have the power to read human thoughts". Now, the source material is a dodgy (Wikipedia), but wouldn't the "ask questions" tactic prove fruitless if they can read thoughts?
>>24540044So ask him if he's a Navajo first.
>>24539788Only thing I know of that really gives them the willies is the Kadaitcha man.
>>24538967It's simple, OP.Kill it and wear its skin.
>>24540044possibly. info is spotty in the first place. iv never actually SEEN a skin walker so i dont know what does and doesnt work, my dad only has what he was taught by the shaman before him. so really, all you can do is go out and find one, test it and see if it rips you apart and replaces you. captcha olicanf testwe will call this test the olicanf test
>>24540125>olicanf testHeh - only if you pay for my plane ticket!But you'd best confront it in numbers - no way it can kill all of you without at least one of you taking it out...Then again...
Does anyone think this could be a good tabletop game or a freeform skype game or something? A group of 5-6 players doing a standard quest for really anything, probably something made up, but only one player knows the truth -- they're a skinwalker stalking the party.
>>24540168So basically a WoD game where one player's a Changeling.
>>24540125What if, instead of asking it a question because it might be able to read my mind, I just rip my pants off and start furiously jerking off in front of them. They won't be able to read my mind to tell what they should logically be doing, because the only thing that goes through my mind when I'm pumping nut ethanol is "YEAH GONNA CUM BUCKETS YEAH YEAH". So if they remove their pants and monkey see, monkey do, then I know they're a skin walker and spray my white ash all over them.The only downside is if they're not a skinwalker, I probably just lost a friend (or ended up in a very weird relationship)
>>24540171What is WoD?
>>24540159If it's alone...
>>24540210>secretly, everyone is a skin walker>you are the last human>run.
>>24540171I could see this done in either WoD or CoC.Well...not in WoD - haven't played that yet.
>>24540159i suppose i can do it. there are supposed to be some around here but iv always stayed away from where they live. ill post in 2 hours if i see anything
>>24540235May be a bad idea - I wouldn't advise it if the stories are true. Perhaps best just to stay here with us and talk.
>>24540235ta-alk with. us
>>24540235I wouldn't worry about it anon.
>>24540204World of Darkness. Modern Horror/Fantasy system.
>>24540232It'd basically be a refluffed changeling with the other players just playing sleepers.
Is >>24540235 going to die /tg/?
>>24540365Nah don't worry about it.
>>24540365I wouldn't worry about it anon.
>>24540235Well fuck. Guess anon is gone.
>>24540381>>24540382I'm not leaving my house anymore.
>>24540396That's okay. You'll invite us over for dinner eventually.
>>24538967>>24539091If these stories were converted to prose, better written and the authors had taken the time to flesh out the characters and settings they'd be really interesting.
>>24540231Everyone's a skinwalker, but they don't know the others are.
>>24540454>everyone is a skinwalker>skinwalkers kill skinwallers and use their skinHoly shit
I guarantee there is no such thing as skinwalkers. How could something so large fit in the small skin of a human? It just can't work. It would be like trying to wear a glove for mice. We're all fairly intellect people here on /tg/, I think we can all understand the physical impossibility of one fitting in such a small volume.
>>24540478You can't fool me skinwalker!
>>24540478>Implying Humans aren't TARDS
>>24540416I feel like there's been a quest thread with this exact concept before at some point. Bodysnatcher Quest or something maybe?
>>24540496ok, let's say I was a skin walker. Why would I be on /tg/?
>>24540478How... How do you know how big a skinwalker is anon...
>>24540525To trick people into believing you don't exist and to learn what tactics we would come up with to kill you. Duh.
>>24540525You like playing Changeling: The Lost?
>>24540478I'd like to summon to the strand our good friend and doctor, Mr. Ass Marbles, to determine if the skin of a human being is large enough to suit the needs of these creatures.The method used to determine this would be, obviously, to have Dr Marbles stick stuff up his ass.
>>24540525To fool the only people who can kill you.
>>24540525Because your former self loved traditional games
>>24540525Because you stole the body of a neckbeard and need to observe neckbeard central to properly fit into your new human role.
>>24540525Cuz we're smart. And are the ones who would figure you out first. So you plan to practice that old adage; know thine enemy.
Does anybody have the Goatman Pasta saved, or do I have to dig it out?
>>24540529Oh, I don't. I meant to say how large skinwalkers are rumored to be. Since there are no skinwalkers there would of course be no way of knowing.You should talk to David some time.
>>24540559Nobody has ever mentioned what a skinwalkers true form is like anon......I'm logging off now
>>24540566NO! Don't leave me with him! don't go...
>>24540534>>24540542>>24540548>>24540553But there are no skin walkers.>>24540536Never heard of it.>>24540537Ah yes, I remember that show. Was a very good one. Shame it got canceled.
>>24540566Seriously, talk to David. He found this really cool building out in the woods a little ways.
>>24540585We all know they don't exist anon, we're just having fun. No need to sperg out and spoil it for the rest of us
>>24540585>Ah yes, I remember that show. Was a very good one. Shame it got canceled.SHIT WE CAUGHT IT IN THE ACT, CALL CHEIRON
>>24540602You mean Ash?Who's this David asshole Anon?
>>24540585>Dr. Ass Marbles>A showSKINWALKER ON THE LOOSE! EVERYONE WATCH YOUR BACK!
>>24540585GOT YOU MOTHERFUCKER. PREPARE TO GET YOUR ASS REAMED WITH WHITE ASH BULLETS
>>24540607YOU'LL NEVER CATCH ME. BY THE TIME THEY GET HERE I'LL BE LONG GONE. SEE YOU SOON ANON.
This is Beijing.Imagine being in this and learning there are 5000 skin walkers among the people of this town and you are given the responsibility to kill them all.
>>24540554Fine faggots, just take it.
>>24540603Oh right, we're all playing pretend like we do on /tg/ guess I just went really autist.
>>24540628>implying they could survive with all the white ash in the air
>>24540628How do I know who the fuck is a skinwalker?
>In 2004, Indigenous Australians who disagreed with his policies ritually cursed the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard by pointing a bone at him. He is still alive as of 2013`
>>24540628>What is being a Hunter in WoD
>>24540648You don't anon... you don't.
>>24540607>>24540617>>24540621Ah I get it now, we are pretending to find the skinwalker, like a game yes?>>24540624And this man is pretending to be the skinwalker.Which we all know does not exist.Also, what is all this talk of white-ash being effective? I have never heard this.
>>24540235hey this is that guy, came back early. got to a spot where one is supposed to live, saw a dude sitting on a rock looking my way and descided to go the other way. faith and a m1911 can get you quite a ways but not far enough to keep you from getting ripped apart and eaten
>>24538967Hahaha, I wouldn't worry about it OP.
>>24540648Exactly. Have fun.
>>24540663yes anon. a game. juuuuust a game. dont turn around
>>24540660Yeah I read that too.lol'd
>>24540665Did you not shout out to it? If it didnt respond, that is a different story.
>>24540663Well. I wouldn't worry about the white ash. That doesn't even make sense at all. How would ash hurt anything? Don't think to hard about it.
>>24540665Good fucking call.
Hello friends, I'm going to start out simple with the STALKER Challenge.Wish me luck.God I hope I don't die.
>>24540701Apparently - according to Navajo lore (and dodgy Wikipedia) white ash makes bullets effective.>Or knowing the skinwalkers TRUE name.............and plugging it in the head with a large-bore firearm
>>24540695no i hid behind a rock and looked at it to see if it moved. it just kept staring my way. i clearly had a gun so i would think if it was a person it would say something.
>>24540701Mystic shit, like garlic and vampires or silver and werewolves.>captcha suffer iaishiObviously Iaishi is a skinwalker and he must suffer.
>>24540715Ditch the Harmonica, learn the STALKER guitar tracks and take a guitar.
>>24540663>>24540701Just ignore them, we get people like that all the time. By the way, there's a seminar on interacting with other people and popular conversation topics taking place at the local community center on Saturday night. I heard it's good enough that a single session there can teach you everything you need to fit into society. You should bring all your friends to them and enjoy yourselves. By the way, if you see any military vehicles or bonfire smoke nearby, they're just holding barbeques in the nearby park. Don't worry about them.
>>24540701Ah, I went to the wikipedia page for skinwalkers.It said at the top it was a legend so obviously they aren't real.And i found the white ash thing. Apparently the Navajo believe that to kill a skin-walker (kill something that doesn't exist? are they crazy amiright?) you have to cover the bullet in white ash.That's preposterous but it made something that happened when I went to Arizona once make sense. they thought I was skin walker yes? Still have scar from the bullet. Crazy Navajo.
>>24540726YOU STUPID MOTHERFUCKER! You're telling them what they want to know! CLAMTHE FUCK UP! Otherwise we can't kill them!
>>24540757>Implying the legend wouldn't already know about itself
>>24540756You're english is alittle spotty there anon. You feeling alright?
>>2453896710/10 would read again
>>24540757Fool. Fire purges all the unclean. BURN MOTHERFUCKERS! BUUUUURN!!!!!
>>24540777>implying they would have known about white ash if you hadn't told em.Welp That's it. We're all dead. Good job there bud.
>>24540786oh man, i know this is a little out of topic, but look at those drippings. Best part, wiping it up with a bit of bread.
>>24540787But Fire also purges the clean.>inb4 acceptable losses
>>24540804You like Raw meat anon? Yeah. I bet you do...
Has anyone ever thought about how the onset of cloud storage is going to fuck up future generations? Imagine in a year or two that everything goes to hell and nukes are deployed and shit and civilization is near destroyed. It rebuilds itself over centuries or millennia and most of the data was cloud stored, and no longer able to be found. Imagine two thousand years from now archeologists finding a hard drive from our time period. It would be a major archeological find, one of the 3 hard drives found ever from the time before the war! And what do they find on it? A bunch of logs of CoC/WoD and just general /tg/ fuckery from some person here. Can you imagine the looks on their faces when they begin reading stories of skinwalkers and Cthulu and shit and wondering what the fuck happened?
>>24540726>skinwalker true name>shaggy daggy doo>>24540736Whoever this laishi is I'm sure they are not a skin walker, skinwalkers don't exist>>24540754ahaha you funny man. You try to set up people pretending to be skinwlakers to go into a trap to kill skinwalkers. Good thing there are no skinwalkers.>>24540757You say them like you think they're real.>>24540780Yes, I am feeling well. The language is rather new to me is all.
>>24540816You want to know what will happen? They will be forewarned. They will know what's coming. And god willing. They can stop it.
Guys, I think we made a terrible mistake. The guy that went off to look for one of them?Did he turn off his computer? Did he clear the browsing history?What if they got him? What if, right now, there's a skinwalker learning about /tg/ ?They're fast learners, but they can't really comprehend fantasy as we use it, so if they come here and read stuff like "so I was leading my ork army and suddenly a fedora neckbeard asshole came over screaming 'tau rules, gitback to you activated my trap card lolololo 2drop JUDGE, THAT GUY quest #594", they'll go out into the world as killing machines.L-lets just ask a mod to delete this thread and never speak of this again.
>>24540815i bet you are just trying to sow the seeds of distrust. amigos! this lad isnt our comrad!
>>24540828No. Because then they will fear us. They will know of our greatest strength. Our ability to think. We can adapt faster then they can. And there are more of us. We will win. We have to.
>>24540828He did not. But they couldn't have gotten to him, they don't exist.
>>24540828OP hereDon't worry anon, I won't delete the thread. This thread is a giant joke, skinwalkers aren't real. You have nothing to worry about, there's no need to ruin our fun and sharing of knowledge and merriment. Just carry on, I'm sure it's nothing.
Imagine if there was a yandere skinwalker that was obsessed with you, and purposefully follows you home, identifying which females you interact most with. Then it narrows it down to which one would be the most physically attractive to you, kills her, and takes her place. All of a sudden, that next-door neighbor girl or classmate is acting a lot more socially awkward, but has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of your habits, likes and dislikes, and insists on following you everywhere and asking you what qualities you would find most attractive in a lover.
>>24540630Sounds like it just wanted to be among humans.Like it was cursed and was lonely.It's kinda sad when you think about it
>>24540842How do I know you aren't the skinwalker? We need to start doing blood tests. Like The Thing.
>>24540853Please don't turn this into shitty HFY
>>24540868Hey. Real talk for a sec. I had to. I was getting hella creeped out.
>>24540828Well apparently he ventured out with his trusty colt and quickly came back.
>>24540842ahaha get the skinwalker! lol>>24540853yes Humans Fuck Yeah.>>24540857I know /tg/ has weird sexual ideas but fantasizing about something that certainly can't exist? that's a new level of crazy.
>>24540874Or that's what the skinwalker wants you to think.
>>24540873>implying this isn't real
>>24540858Maybe instead of killing someone and taking his skin it could have hunted a dog or something less self-aware and become a well-loved family pet if it wanted interaction and acceptance.
>>24540828jesus christ. a skinwalker walking around knowing only fa/tg/uy lore. you will know its a skin walker if it says "HEY ELEGEN/TG/ENTELMEN! WANT TO ERP?"
>>24539091I don't scare easy but damn that was pretty good. Not as good as OP though.
>>24540879Humans fuck yeah! is what a delighted skin walker would say when it found tasty humans. This guy. right here. He's a skin walker.
>>24538967I'll tell you how to combat a skinwalker.Always hang around someone slower than you.And if you're the slow one, carry something to make someone slower than you.
>>24540863maybe YOU are the skin walker and your blood will call more of your brood, thats why you want us to do the test when we are missing some blood and slower
Well the last time we killed one we droped a god damn legendary boat on it
>>24540898yes I like this game of find the skin-walker. It is a great Role-Playing Game.>>24540885Of course it isn't real.>>24540891Would certainly be amusing if skin-walkers were real.
>>24540886I was referring to the goatman pasta and how it seemed that the goatman had no violent intentions or other ill will towards the humans, but your idea is still an interesting one.Why can't skinwalkers be animals? How do you know if your animal is a skinwalker? It would act the exact same...And it's always with you...
>>24540891And the smile.I can picture them pulling the right muscles in the appropriate fashion, looking you in the right way and still giving you chills just because you KNOW there's something missing. Like if they learned to smile just by pure observation and repetition without ever connecting to the feeling that drives the action per-se. Those eyes, watching you, ever-so-closed, seeing if they're fooling you or not, just... measuring.That's a predatory mind at work.
>>24540920Or maybe you're the skinwalker and don't want us to get ahold of your blood. What's your game here anon?
What ifwe get a bunch of kigurumi suitsand give them to the skinwalkersso then that way they can get human bodies without having to kill peopleand we get hot anime chicks running around in real lifeand since most kigurumi suits are based off autistic/moe girls with social issues they won't have any problem emulating what they're dressed as
Alright, what the fuck is a skin walker? Clinical explanation please.
>>24540938they have no joy in there eyes when they do it, only pulled back face and bared teeth. jesus christ.
>>24540934Except you missed the part where the GoatMan was disappearing people.
>>24540949I ain't telling you nothing skinwalker.
>>24540949clinical explintion is a skin walker is a being or spirit that kills something and turns into it.
>>24540945>kigurumi>hotSounds like you have a skinwalker fetish.
What if all those really cute gamer girls with beta-max's who orbit them all the time are really skinwalkers, slowly sucking in a harem of ready-to-eat meals?
>>24540949A type of spirit/thing that through wearing the skins of people or animals can take their form.
>>24540956Yes. It appears that I did. My mistake.That...would explain the smell of blood permeating the air around the campsite.
>>24540971Who the fuck took that picture?
>>24540971That's a skinwanker, it's another beast entirely, anon.
>>24540971>dead eyes>hiding bruises on arms>dressing provocativelyAw shit
>>24540971Dammit anon. I"ll never fap to pictures of women on the internet again. I'll be to scared.
>>24540630Oh you know its a great story when someone says "sorry I had to go to the toilet and shit brix"
>>24540977It would also explain all that skin... that you are now walking in...
>>24540925god damn i cant tell if you dont speak english or you are really good at making this seem creepy
I ain't trusting none of you fuckers until we establish some kind of legitimate test.
Become a ventriloquist and voice actor. Stomp through the forest, rehearsing your routine, throwing your hilarious voices in multiple directions. As you walk, throw rocks into the bush and ready yourself. Now go back to your tent, unzip it, make some rustling noises, then zip it back up and retreat to a pre made dig-in. Continue to throw your voice to the tent and sing a lively sea shanty.Once the creature comes within range. Break loose the gates of hell. Detonate the thermite charges and shrapnel bombs around the tent, begin firing wildly with any firearm at your disposal and hurl petrol bombs.Once the ash settles, you should have yourself one well cooked Skinwalker. If you don't, look on the bright side: You have made it your bitch, and it will likely never fuck with you again.
>>24540949Well, some crazy people believe, that skin-walkers are these things that live in the wilderness resembling a slightly taller than average person with grey-ish skin and black around their eyes rather than white. They can apparently take someone's body as their own after killing them but only i they kill the person without weapons which would hardly be difficult assuming how frail people are. They also have the ability (or they would if they existed) to imitate sound they hear. Once they have a body they would try to learn how to act in society and bring other humans for their tribe to inhabit.These are the pretend things /tg/ is pretending to find and making a game of.
>>24541016Maybe they're really a skinwalker.
>>24541025i got one, ask what chapter they are from
>>24540804Rare red meat, not off-topic.
>>24541031Oh. And what can you do to stop these pretend beings? I would like to know for a game I am running. Since this is /tg/ and it's for recreational tabletop games.
>>24541034Table of contents is a valid answer.
>>24541047Activate Trap Cards and Spend Mana - that'd get you going....skinwalker
>>24541048>24541048ok well thats one person that isnt a skin walker, but now we need a new test
>>24541016I am gaining a hold of the language rather well, so I can speak it almost proficiently now. Why would I try to seem creepy? I'm not involved in this game of find the skin walker /tg/ is playing.>>24540978It was taken by someone to the side. That's why the mirror is off center and the girl is not in the middle of it.
>>24541031WE TRICKED THE SKINWALKER INTO TELLING US ITS SECRETS.
>>24541064Who says its a mirror?
>>24541064Can skinwalkers show up in mirrors or something? I need methods of detection for my shadowrun game. I want to incorporate skinwalkers in it and I need to know methods of detection.
>>24541047Please, you don't need to stop them. They can't exist as I've already pointed out.For your game, I recommend the white ash myth. There are many who faithfully believe in it up until the point where it doesn't work.
>>24541092yes skinwalkers show up in mirrors
>>24541092They do indeed show up in mirrors. If they did exist, we would look for black rings around the iris of the eyes where the bodies eyes don't quite fit right.
>>24541097Right. But I need ways to detect them. For lore rolls. Not just ways to hurt them. And you say it doesn't actually work? Then what does? /tg/ is usually so good about this. I wonder what's wrong.
>>24541115*they would look forAs they say, I need sleep.
>>24541092The only things that set skinwalkers apart is the fact that they, at first, seem "off". They dont have the persons memories and, when taking control of a new creature type, still have to learn (albeit very quickly) shit. Like if you handed one a PDA, they would have no idea how it works at first.
Make myself really easy prey.Poison the shit out of my meat.Hope that I wasn't just being paranoid as fuck.

>>24541121You can use the white ash for your game, it will serve your ends.>>24541125If they existed that is. I'm sure you meant to include that in your post as /tg/ is to reasonable to believe in fairy tales
hey its that guy who went out to find the skinwalker earlier. saw some dude on a rock but when i called out to him he ran off, so i followed him, dunno what that was about but i couldent find him.got back and my keyboard is all muddy, fuckin brother
>>24541167Yeah. That wasn't you're brother. Unless your brother walks... In skin.
>>24541167You, anon, you. Tell me RIGHT NOW how many points has your largest tau army, and what was in your last deck, and how did your last DnD character died.If you don't respond in 3 minutes, I'm calling /x/.
>>24541156But everyone uses White ash. I don't want my players to say I'm cliche. Isn't there anything else I can use?
>>24541201Everyone know /x/ is terrible now. Everyone but a skinwalker who is working off of old information!
>>24541195hAhA. just humoring anonymouse. my piano is not soiled
>>24541006...She's in an abusive relationship?
>>24541204Polonium coated rounds work wonders
>>24541204BLACK ashThey'll never suspect it
>>24541215Yeah. scout anon is fucked.
>>245412013000, bourous, halflings
>>24541226y...yeah. funny. good joke anon.
>>24541204Nuclear test sites work.
>>24541201I'll just answer as well.Don't play Tau, Rakdos, and Forever GM.
>>24541218That or she's a skinwalker.Either way, damaged goods
>>24541210yeah, but at least they got enough shit to confuse the skinwalkers. The poor guys will think we live in a society plagued by ghosts, ghouls, and other stuff that start with gh that can fuck us over just because.>>24541201Still counting...your time is almost up.
>>24541233Got one right here. No human play Tau. Should be obvious by now.
>>24541246They don't work well. They do work best. But then you've gotta step through the never never. And I can't do that. Wouldn't want to even if I could. Seriously. Fuck the fey. Worse then Skinwalkers if you ask me. At least you know skinwalkers are gonna kill you.
Well, it has been fun playing find the pretend skin-walker /tg/ but I need to sign off now. My roommate is making a fuss because I've been acting weird according to him. So night.Remember, skin walkers can't be real.If any of you live in the states, I hear camping is wonderful this time of year around the Appalachians.
>>24541348good night skin walker
>>24541348Right. I'm camping in Norway. At least trolls are big enough to fucking see.
>>24541348You never had a roommate, dude. Even if you're a strange creature, beware. For when hunters look for prey, they forget they can be hunted too.
Guys, the best way to overcome the disguise of a skinwalker is to play a game of magic against it if the person already knew how to play.Think about this. This wouldn't work with any game that isn't relatively new like chess.
>>24541373Haha. Funny one anon. Goodnight.
>>24540630o my fuck why didnt i read that all the other times
>>24541348Could be worse. Could be wendigos.
>>24541456FUCK! you had to bring up wendigos. As if we didn't have it bad enough with Skinwalkers. Thank god I live in the southeast. All I have to worry about is Skunkapes and Sasquatch.
>>24541456Or Aboriginals sneaking into your home and ramming bones into your ass.
>>24541483Ha! I'm english. We just have to keep the bloody Owlmen and Barghests away.
>>24541483>>24541456actually i have seen a wendigo. those things are awful.
>>24541500No shit. at least Skinwalkers don't start out human. Wendigos are like... 5 times worse! They used to be people! Fuck. Where's MHI when you need their ass.
>>24541348HereDid you guys know you xan find /tg/ on phones? This is pretty neat.>>24541483I'm in the southeast as well. What part are you in?
>>24541534*canThese touching screens are inaccurate aren't they?
>>24541534I am in pennsylvania.
>>24541483Californiafag here. I just Googled the Proctor Valley Monster. I AM NEVER GOING CAMPING. EVER.
>>24541576Pennsylvania is not in the southeast. I ask because there might be some great national parks by where you live. One should always take time to enjoy nature's beauty.
>>24541632It's close to the southeast. And it's late. Sorry. But yeah. Pennsylvania. And I go camping all the time. Good thing skinwalkers aren't real huh?
>>24541632You fool! You fell for one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war with Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this:>Most Humans care not for nature!Obviously you sir, are a skinwalker.
>>24541652Just what a skinwalker would say.
Not me but my sister and her friends. I guess that makes it skeptical as this isn't a firsthand account, though there was some proof for it, explained in the story;The setup;>Live on a golf course community>At the back of the course, long, long expanse of forest>Eventually leads to this really weird subdivision, built in the 70's>Not really important to the story but whatever, it's just a weird, isolated neighborhood which borders a big forest>That said, beyond the woods and through the subdivision, and there's a shopping center bordering a main roadThe situation;>Halloween evening>After trick or treating with her friends, they get some calls from their other friends who are all hanging out in the shopping center>She and her friends there grab our golf cart, and head across the golf course>Plan to cut through the woods, through the subdivision to reach the shopping center>While driving through the woods in the sunset light, they see for seemingly no reason, a guy without a shirt standing out in the middle of the woods facing away from them and whistling>They stop for a bit to watch and record a video on their phone but eventually just go on, reach the shopping center and hang out there til like 2 in the morning>Ready to head back, she picks up 2 more of her friends who live nearby, so there's 5 of them total>Heading back through the subdivision, find the woods, driving along the same trail to get back to the golf course in the pitch black now>Eventually they pass by the same point and stop, because right fucking in the same spot is the guy, standing there away from them and whistlingCont.
>>24541705you still writing anon? Or did the skinwalkers get you?
>>24541840Cant it be both?
>>24541705My sister told me, it was actually the whistling that they heard which caused them to stop.>Being a bunch of dumb kids, they sit and watch, joking around and shit>One of the boys grabs a flashlight and shines it directly on the guy>"Yo man, you high or something?">They guy stopped whistling, just started laughing, like side-splitting laughter>Eventually he turned his head to look back at themThis part she said she remembered clear as day.>Despite having a big grin from ear to ear, he looked completely normal>Some seconds later though he turned his body to face them, and his torso was all carved up, all sorts of shapes cut into his chest, such that pretty much his entire front was soaked red and even his pants were stained>Of course at this point they all shit themselves, and my sister just hit the gas, but it still meant driving past him to reach the golf course>He took a few steps towards them and hurled a handful of what they all said were like small white stones or something>Right about at that point my sister had to hit the brakes because out of the darkness from one side to the other, what looked to be a young child wearing only a long shirt just ran in front of the cart super fast from out of the darkness and back into it>She keeps going through the woods and eventually hit the golf course again>The whole time though, up until they actually left the course itself, they said they saw the child stalking them>Not following or running after, they just kept looking back and seeing it at different intervals near them, twice at least even in a tree>Reach home, shit bricks, all of them just stay the night at our house
How do I know that I'm not a skinwalker?Like, what if I stole my skin, but in order to blend in I've completely internalized my personality and now believe my skin to be my actual skin?
>>24541885Nope. Skinwalkers can't be that meta. You're fine.
>>24541876After it all, they ended up with a video of the guy before sunset, then a photo or two of him in the dark, and finally a really shitty video and a bunch of photos of the child following them. My dad said the guy was just some junkie or something from that subdivision, and the child was probably actually just a heron (a lot of them on the golf course) or something that was following them.That said, I looked at the pictures and the videos, and they looked to correspond with the story that all of them told, shit scared. I mean the guy was clear to see, and in the other stuff, it definitely looked like a kid to me. One of the kids said they had managed to actually get a video recording of the guy the whole time and him throwing the things, but they actually lost the whole phone when my sister made the rough transition onto the golf course out of the woods going full speed. No one actually went back to look for it though, but someone did try texting it and got some weird replies so they just blocked the number.
>>24541926Hmmmm....You probably know what the next anon's going to ask...
>>24541926Also one other weird detail that I learned some years later, was that the golf course used to actually be a quarry, and they just filled it all in. Back in the day though, there was a guy who kidnapped a couple of local kids and killed them, hid their bodies in the quarry.Probably nothing more than an odd coincidence, as the quarry part wasn't really even near where the adjacent woods were, a different hole. Still though, pretty spooky.
I was once a man.
>>24542003and now you're a skinwalker?
>>24542015no. now he is dancer
>Mfw this entire thread.
>>24542183rolling boxcars on your moral did you now?
You could be in NZ where the locals thought that all white people were pale elf type things. IN NU ZEELUND THE WHITE MAN IS DEMON
>>24542267Boxcars? I rolled a whole fucking freight train. Choo choo, motherfucker.
>>24542619so... what orks need to shoot something?
You fuckers got me watching my dog for suspicious activity.No sleep tonight.
>>24542743Be careful, you don't want to put all your focus on your dog. Especially if it means putting your back to a window.
>Hang out with a large group of friends>One of them says he knows this cool abandoned place we should all investigate>"Lol okay">We drive there after getting Chinese food at the middle of the night>General Tso's Chicken, tastes great>When we're all done we find the entrance and jump the fence>After half an hour of walking around we find what is probably a drug den>A really OLD drug den>Graffiti all over the place>We find some that looks suspiciously like a human>All in white>Aside from the hands>Which are red and weird>Everyone is sorta spooked>We all start making a B-line back to our cars>When we all get inside and buckled up we realize one of us is gone>We say fuck it and call the police>They find him dead, multiple stab wounds>Nothing ever comes of itMeh.
>>24542776I've got so many windows it's nearly impossible not too. There aren't any woods but I'm 30 miles from from the irradiated desert land of the hanford site. So if there's a god damn radioactive skinwalker disguised as my dog Imma shit a brick house.
>>24542852>friend>stabbed to death>"Meh"It was you, you skin-wearing freak!
>>24541063CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!Do I pass?
>>24538967>rifleConfirmed for non-Australian author. Should have chosen shotgun (non semi-auto).
Holy Fuck /tg/, I though me and my friend were the only ones who had seen this shit. Greentexting intro for speed.>Be farm boy in New Zealand>Have two cousins in Gisborne on the other side of the North island>Invited to their place, meet with them and some friends>suggests going camping up near Tuhoe territory>hurr farm boys can do anything hurr>Pack up the usual shit (meat, tents, etc)Okay. This was a retarded idea, considering the Tuhoe Maori fucking hate anyone coming on their land without permission, especially a bunch of white boys who think they are hot shit. But I was sixteen, my cousins were 17 and 18, and the 3 other guys were roughly the same ages as us. Anyway, we headed out their, usual shit, setting up tents by a small stream and stuff. Spent the day exploring, fishing, shit like that. By sundown, my eldest cousin has set up a fire and we're all sitting around eating meat and candy because we're a bunch of little shits. By 10pm I think, two of my cousins friends go off to get some more firewood.
>>24542969Half and hour later, one of them comes back screaming his nuts off about all this crazy shit about something attacking them. So we all think 'oh shit a boar/Angry black man!' and get everyone together around the fire. My two cousins, both being the best guys ever, try to get everyone together so we can search for them. Anyway, we're all getting our torches and shit together, along with one of my cousin's being a rich guy has a head lamp, and generally making a fuck ton of noise. Then we hear all this rustling coming out of the woods. All the bushes around the camp are rustling up and we're all thinking 'oh god what the fuck'. Then this big fuck-off huge Maori guy, covered and tattoos and knives and shit steps out of the bushes, dragging our friend. So we're all thinking 'the fuck did he do?', because from what we can see of our mate, he's all cut up and his cloths are ripped to shit. I am, at this point, nearly shitting myself, but this big guy just asks if we can look after this guy he found. We point out that its our friend, and he just tosses him to us and tells us to not let anyone else go wandering off or letting anyone else near us. Anyway, our one friend who actually ran back to us starts questioning him about all this bizarre shit like 'the fuck was that thing?' and 'What happened?'. Turns out the guy was hunting something in the forest, and their were a bunch more Maori hunters in the forest, so we should be careful. Now, /tg/, this guy is obvious a native Tuhoe, who are suppose to be fucking crazy but is actually acting like a real bro to us. Anyway, one if the elder guys asks him what the hell he is hunting and the big guy just stares at him. And since this guy's face is covered in all these crazy Maori tattoos, he looks fucking terrifying.
>>24542933Meh as in it was a boring story
>>24542852So, your response to your friend being found stabbed to death is "Meh." You are a horrible friend, but that was apparent the instant you left a man behind.
Damn it all, not again.
>>24542982Basically>Cousin: No, tell us what the hell you are hunting.>Maori: Just stay here and you'll be fine>C: Dammit, we can't just sit here>M: Boy, this isn't a boar we're hunting, so you sit your fucking arse right there and none of you fucking move.Then we hear a bunch of hounds barking, and we're all thinking 'yeah right its not a boar.' And then their's a massive fucking roar and the Maori guy runs straight off into the bush again. Yeah. Imagine how we reacted. Our friend had just been rescued by someone who is suppose to be bugfuck crazy, their is obviously more guys running around in the woods along with their dogs, and there's something huge out there roaring its head off. We basically shit ourselves. Anyway, after we're done jumping at any noise for a while, my younger cousin decides to keep the fire going with a bunch of twigs from the bushes along the river, and tells us to keep watching him if anything happens. Nothing did, so we started to relax again, especially since we'd only heard that massive roar once, and the dogs barking had faded off.
>>24543367Then another Maori bloke, just like the other guy who turned up before, just walks out of the bushes and waves at us. Now we're all thinking, maybe this guy was that previous guys friend, and he can tell us what happened. He just stands their, staring at us. And then he flips the fuck out, swearing at us in Maori and shit, waving his arms around and stuff spraying blood everywhere, since his fingers were all bloody and stuff, like he'd been cut up, and his clothes were all ripped. Then, I shit you not, the big Maori guy from before comes fucking barreling out of the forest on to the back of this new guy, and wraps him straight around the back. He's got a knife out and everything, and starts stabbing the shit out of the new guy, and we're all petrified because, holy shit, he's murdering someone in front of us. >Nope.jpg
>>24543375New guy just tosses the previous guy back into the forest and runs back in after him. We aren't doing shit because, because 'holy shit what the fuck is going on?'. All we can hear is these two Maori guys fucking duking it out and stuff in the forest, and we can't see shit because its the middle of the god damn night. No idea how much later, but the previous guy, the one who we met originally comes back out, covered in blood, with a bunch of other Maori guys, all carrying knives and stuff. Now, we would be shitting ourselves about this, but all of them are laughing their heads off and all that shit.So we ask them what the hell just happened, and they literally sit down at our campfire, and spend the rest off the night eating all our shit and getting drunk. No idea what happened to the one who got stabbed, but from the way those guys we're going on about how they just pulled off something that would make Maui proud. By the time the sun is coming up, we haven't had any sleep, and half of the hunters are asleep in our tents. My eldest cousin is talking to one of the head hunters, an old guy with this total bitching cloak of bird feathers is explaining what happened. Apparently they'd been hunting a spirit beastie thing called a Taniwha that they had been hunting for the past week. Apparently we made good bait for it.Fucking bait. Jesus christ.
>THIS ENTIRE FUCKING THREADSQUAD BROKEN
>>24543490Well shit; good thing they got it before it phased out.
>live in the south>as kids, my friends and I would always go wandering through the swamps after school>swampy areas are everywhere>never tell our parents because alligators, poisonous snakes, bugs, etc.>fuck yes this childhood is awesome>found a well hidden makeshift line of plank platforms, kind of П-shaped that you could walk on>follow about a hundred feet of this into the middle of the swamp>find a raised wooden platform coming up five feet out of the muck, the size of a generous bedroom>can't see the edge of the swamp from it>we all lie to our parents about staying over at each others' houses>bring our sleeping bags and spend the night on the platform>could barely sleep because I kept hearing sloshing noises>fucking alligatorsI was more afraid of swampsquatches. We always had stories about those.

Thank you /tg/ for these stories. And I luckily didnt read them at night. Its beautiful sunny noon here. And I will now go to grab a lunch and happily forgot about all of this.And probably keep it hidden in some deep part of my mind, so I can pull it out during gaming nights to create horror in my players of some low powered horror game.Thanks!
Doing some little necromancy on this thread.So. Reading about all of that inspired me. I got some nice rpg action going on for five days in two weeks, and I want to homebrew something for my friends including skinwalkers, Wendigos, or some kind of look-alike shapeshifting/corpse desecrating/camouflaging and/or metamorphosing monster.I already dug up some inspiration from movies like The Thing, or Mimic. Any nice gentleman to give me more food for thoughts, here ?
>>24542968A lot of Australians still have .303's.>Decide to look up OP's story on /x/'s archive.>Please don't be my state.>It is.>It's not far from here; I've been to the national park where he camped.
>>24547881Where would you want to set it? IMO, dont make it in Antarctica, it'll ring a little too close to the Thing. Fantastic movie, don't get me wrong, it's just been done before. Mitebecool if done right, and I would definitely want to see a finished product.
>>24547927Australia confirmed for Acid master race.
>>24547979WA.He was around Shannon National Park. It's true that vast swathes of forest are off-limits down there, probably because of thee magic mushroom that grow freely there, but maybe the government found something we should stay away from.
>>24548037>SAWell I'm glad there's at least some distance from me.Time to stock up on some firearms now.
>>24539582>I mean on some level there has to be some truth to the fact of people living in the woods, killing people, and wearing their skin as a suit.no
>>24547966Yeah, I also thought it could be a problem... or not at all, since none of them like to watch horror movies. But better be prepared than sorry, so I'll discard antarctica and winter-like locations just to be sure.Maybe something like a little town near a national park. The PC's could be a group of friends going to an hunt in some isolated place, residing in an hotel when they aren't shooting stuff. I then could use some NPC's to let them understand that something is not quite right in this place.
>>24548066I made a 1890s CoC Adventure based off of Evil Dead 1 and 2 - although not entirely relevant to what your talking/asking.
>>24548066North-Eastern Germany, near the border with Poland. There's some woods there, and I'm sure there's been enough bloodshed in the last 100 years to disturb whatever it is you want to throw at your players.
>>24548050You've got the Nullabor between you and there; not much skin for them to ride or places for them to hide.Besides you're the church state, get some divine help while you are building you're armoury.

>>24541500what is a wendio, please explain?
>>24540825Ladies and Gentlemen a skinwalker that can use the internet! Slow clap for our friend here!
>>24548094Feel free to tell about it - it sounds like some fun (or at least it sounds like it in my wicked little GM's brain).>>24548098Damn it, that's a good idea ! I'll do some research about this area, since I only ever visited the Schwarzwald. Thanks for remembering me of German forests.
>>24548178You forgot the image.
>>24548150WendiGo : A man possessed by an evil spirit, wich turns into some kind of bloodthirsty canibalistic monster. That's what I remember about it, at least. Nasty things.
>>24541483And Lou Garou. Although that might just be a thing here in Louisiana.We Coonasses don't really freak out about monsters though. We've been here long enough to know.
>>24548180It may take a few days of sorting through papers - I only made that adventure and a 1950s Cold War campaign based on the ZDoom mod "Cold as Hell".Halfway through that - computer dies, have only draft back ups.>fuckthisivehadenough.jpg
>>24548198They are called "Loups Garous" in France. And "connasse" is a damn rude word, around here.I think I like your local slang.
>>24548218Welp, so much for it then. I always liked reading CoC reports on /tg/.
>>24548225Yeah J get funny looks from black people whenever I say that. I have to explain that I'm referring to Cajuns. But oh Lord, the stories we have down here. If I didn't have an AR and a brace of SKS's in the closet, I'd never get to sleep.
I guess thread is autosaging? Bleh
>>24548391I live in south Louisiana, too. I don't think I've run across any strange stores about the area, though. Of course, I'm not really all that out into the swamps or Cajun country, either. Whatever the case, I would like to hear your stories.
