Nightmare Fuel: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

  • The ancestral tombs. It's not enough that they're all cramped dungeons, but then you hear the ancestral spirits whisper. Then you find yourself brutally surprised by one of the various permanently grinning undead.
  • The Sixth House is a very rich source of Nightmare Fuel. The creepy Sixth House lairs and items, the Body Horror minions, all of it is Uncanny Valley !
  • Dagoth Ur is literally nightmare fuel, he is a Mad Dreamer who gives Bad Dreams to people. Here's a quick example:
    I AM THE SHARMAT
    I AM OLDER THAN MUSIC
    WHAT I BRING IS LIGHT
    WHAT I BRING IS A STAR
    WHAT I BRING IS
    AN ANCIENT SEA
    WHEN YOU SLEEP YOU SEE ME
    DANCING AT THE CORE
    IT IS NOT A BLIGHT
    IT IS MY HOUSE
    I PUT A STAR
    INTO THE WORLD'S MOUTH
    TO MURDER IT
    TEAR DOWN THE PYLONS
    MY BLIND FISH
    SWIM IN THE NEW
    PHLOGISTON
    TEAR DOWN THE PYLONS
    MY DEAF MOONS
    SING AND BURN
    AND ORBIT ME
    I AM OLDER THAN MUSIC
    WHAT I BRING IS LIGHT
    WHAT I BRING IS A STAR
    WHAT I BRING IS
    AN ANCIENT SEA
  • Corprus disease is And I Must Scream in a contagious form. It's similar to leprosy or cancer... but worse. Corprus twists your mind and body the longer you have it, sapping your intelligence and driving you mad. Like leprosy, it is obvious and causes almost everyone to wish that you'd go away. You will eventually become a shambling, tumorous mass as the disease takes effect; the perpetual agony will leave you Always Chaotic Evil, lashing out mindlessly at anything that comes near - and potentially spreading the disease to them. It also stops the aging process, so if you catch it and don't die of it, you'll live until somebody kills you. And you won't have the mental faculties to commit suicide any more. All you will know is the pain - and the will of Dagoth Ur. There is no known cure.
  • A very long-term one, but the knowledge that Morrowind is destroyed by the actions of the Nerevarine. When the rogue moon falls on Vivec and sets off a massive eruption at Red Mountain every major settlement on Vvardenfell is leveled and many mainland cities are also destroyed. The death toll is in the millions and it's all your fault, congratulations.
    • The alternative would have been to allow Dagoth Ur's consciousness to take over that of every single other living being there is, eventually coming to engulf the universe in its entirety. That's not horrifying.
