We're working on a new edition of the Malleus Monstrorum , a comprehensive collection of Mythos beings for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition. It will be released in no firmer date yet. Looking good. Hope you make a bit darker and weird over all layout and images. Especially for this monster manual would love to see it much darker and scary.
Good step on the way it is. Can we please make the ghouls look like the canine hoofed bipeds thst like to eat a corpse and not some edgelord grimdark cenobite thing. Look just because it ate Uncle Mastiveus a few months after burial does not mean it needs hooks, chains and barbs threaded throughout thier body. I saw that as more propaganda than an accurate picture. You know the tall tale that gets passed around rather than reallilty. A promissing new approach to the Mi-Go design.
To be honest, I am somewhat unhappy with the artwork of the field guide. Yes, they do have a modern feel to them but in a way many of them look the same. Furthermore, I also think that many designs in that book do not do the descriptions in the story justice. For exameple, for me a Dark Young must have short, massive legs to trample over its victim. The Mi-Go are another design in the edition I disagree with.
Though the description only speaks of a "multitude of short antennas" I think that their head being a bundle of pinkish tubes has become common lore. The new design here is a step into the right direction. Still missing the claw-like limbs. All in all, please do an modernized version of the canonical images, nothing Giger-style even if it suits contemporary taste better. Kinda like this? Still my favorite illustration of one of Lovecraft's ghouls.
From the Dreamlands boxed set. THAT is the true cosmic horror story right there! I like the bottom one. Is there a reason that ghouls went clive barker body mod on us for 7th edition? I think they are all good - variations on a theme.
I don't mind the nails - they could have come from an encounter with some superstitious humans in the past that thought that might cure "ghoulism" when a changeling was transitioning. I'm not a fan of the nails or, generally speaking, the illustration in CoC 7e but I do like the bits of bone and other explorations of what "ghoul jewellery" might look like. Remember that ghouls have pretty much human-level intelligence, and that they have social behaviour.
They're much more likely to be found in underground communities than as lone monsters. As such, they are surely developing ways to show status, individuality, accomplishments, or whatever unless your version of ghouls have a "hive mentality" or other variation from canon.
Plus, depending on their age, they might be more likely to still have old habits from their past human life. As such, although the "naked dog-faced monster" is probably not uncommon, I imagine it's much more common to find ghouls with random bits of clothing full or partial, human-inspired from various historical eras or ghoul specific, etc. Plus, maybe visible injuries from inter-ghoul fighting or a previous brush up against investigators.
I personally like how the ghouls in Delta Green have different "styles" and societal structures Keepers of the Faith vs. Urban ghouls vs.
Another vote for the last illustration, which looks perfect! Or spectacles, clothes and lots of books like the guy turning ghoul in "Paper Chase". Btw, I dislike that scenario because the ghoul guy is such a friendly chap.
He breaks the Peterson mold of a horror creature being malign. The NPCs reasons for becoming a ghoul who gnaws upon the dead is probably the weakest motivation ever.
He dislikes company and the demands of the civilized world, just likes to read and being a ghoul crawling around underground among the rot and filth with other monsters allows him to do all this apparently. He could just have sold his house, moved to Alaska or somewhere else that's isolated, bringing his books with him to live the life like any other recluse.
A small price to pay for personal leasure, lol. Very cool. I like that they should come in various shapes and sizes.
I don't mind the nails etc either. They should have a culture and society behind them they are mean to be the darkness in mans heart, but they are still thinking and capable humanoids, not beasts. They know spells, worship gods, and befriend humans all the time. I made up a ghoul language a while back for Wail of the Witch. Players loved it. Based of Arabic. The "nailed" ghouls could be the shamans of the pack - carrying ritual tattoos, marks, skin decoration etc.
Some of what we are calling "nails" in the picture look a bit like small bones rather than nails too. Chaosium isn't obligated to reveal information about unpublished products. I also think that the manner in which people ask questions influences whether they will get an answer. Nobody is obligated to do anything in life. But it would be kind of a nice gesture to get an answer from a serious company who cares about their fanbase. Even "rude" questions get answered by business pros. Just listen to all the prank calls on Youtube.
