Info-Text:
Introduction
Players in horror campaigns are a little too accustomed to the nightmares their characters face; even the most eldritch of tentacular horrors is less intimidating when you know exactly what it is¸ because your PC has faced it before.

New times demand new nightmares. This¸ therefore¸ is a book of horrors¸ not a manual of monsters. The horrors are nightmarishly intimate¸ often created from human vice¸ or let loose by human greed. They show us the ugliness that underlies reality. They are the crawling things under the rock of the everyday¸ sane world. Consequently¸ we've detailed our creatures in depth.

Each one has its own agenda¸ its own reason for existence and its own legend. We've made these creatures unusual¸ frightening and bizarre¸ yet sufficiently comprehensible that they players realize they are up against something intelligent¸ if inhuman. The Book of Unremitting Horror includes thirty creature each with:
The Soliloquy
* Diary entries¸ articles and transcripts¸ * A detailed description with behaviour¸ * The forensic clues left behind by the creature¸ * Details of their history and origins¸ * Their special abilities¸ * Their GUMSHOE system stats

The Book covers using creatures with The Esoterrorists background¸ and another includes detailed adventure hooks for use with that setting. There are also artifacts and new GUMSHOE abilities. Finally¸ the book includes two full length adventures. Using BOUH with The Esoterrorists and with Fear Itself

In Esterrorists¸ you are a highly competent investigator¸ tracking down creatures of Unremitting Horror. You may risk injury¸ madness and death¸ but it's your choice. In Fear Itself¸ your just a normal person¸ and the creatures are after you. Let's take an example creature¸ the Sisterite. She hunts down vulnerable men online¸ arranges a date¸ then kills them. In Fear Itself¸ the adventure would start with your techie friend going missing. In Esoterrorists¸ you would be part of the OV investigating the work of a peculiar serial killer.


Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live... Out of the darkness come horrors for the modern era; creatures that steal your dreams and take your life. The Kooks who prey on children on a warm summer's day; the Sisterites who lead lonely men to their doom through personal ads. Created by Dave Allsop (SLA Industries) and Adrian Bott (the Book of Hell)¸ Unremitting Horror is filled with disturbing art¸ descriptions¸ forensic reports combined with top notch d20 stats¸ tested for play balance. Combine this with a harrowing adventure and you have all you need for a terrifying game experience!
