Also, I read Steel Ball Run to finish my Jojo reads (Part 8 is still unfinished I think, so I can save it for later) and to get a last analysis to Funny Valentine.

My verdict is...99% monster, with his genuine admiration for his father being his only genuine redeeming quality. We can spent hours talking about his patriotism/ nationalism and if it's redeeming or not (It's genuine? And if genuine, what's the difference between it and just being insane?), but as long Funny Valentine loves his father...then I have to say No.

But seriously, how the heck he got such a Draco in Leather Pants? He's so damn openly sadistic and is completely apathetic at the suffering he causes, never showing any feeling of "I feel bad but this is the way" and rather being "Yaaay, I'm closer to my goal, who cares for anyone else".

I'm making this EP because I searched it up and it looks like no one has discussed it before in this thread. Either no one thought of discussing it or no one thought it would count. Either way I am going to EP it, and I'm sorry if anyone wanted to or had dibs on it.

What's The Work?

The Harbinger Experiment, a Creepypasta

Who Is He? What Has He Done?

"Zimmerman" (Real name unknown as the narrator refuses to reveal it) was a scientist from the 1970s and the director of the titular Harbinger Experiment of the story.

He was known for being a ruthless and cold man who would commit heinous and amoral acts in order to get results for his research, enough that he is seen as a monster and freak among the scientific community.

Though he has wealth and loyalty partially because he can pay his security team and scientists to go along with his monstrous experiments. He is obsessed with the supernatural, believing in beings from other dimensions and spent 16 years preparing for his project to summon entities from beyond this world into ours.

He bought a plot of land and created a facility there for the project, hiring countless scientists and researchers, including the narrator. Zimmerman has more or less made it so his security team have kept everyone there regardless of whether they want to be or if they choose to back out.

The experiment would open a portal between worlds momentarily, allowing three random "entities" to cross over to our world, and each one these beings would be trapped within one of the three rooms to possess a host trapped within them.

Zimmerman found three hosts of the form of a desperate man in need of money, a drug addict woman and a male drifter, believing to be taking part of a social experiment, a harmless study of the effect of isolation on the human mind which is also the lie Zimmerman told his backers. The point of choosing them is that they were expendable and that no one would notice them if they disappeared.

The experiment began in 1987 in which Zimmerman used a chant or some sort of arcane spell to try and open the portal. This seemed to work as the agonizing screams of the subjects were heard, frightening the researchers only there for money while Zimmerman and his loyalists watched with callous disregard.

The next day, Zimmerman and his crew began to enter the facility to see the results of their work, with the place becoming eery and murky as they could feel the presence of a great evil there. Zimmmerman was simply overjoyed, not frightened like everyone else.

When they check on the girl on the monitor, who appears dead with a look of dread on her face, Zimmerman furiously turns off the monitor, only caring that his host died and that he had killed this poor woman.

Zimmerman then ordered if the images in the other monitors did not return within the next two hours, the security team would be sent to investigate the rooms. While the security team accepted their task, even they began to become frightened by their situation.

Afterwards, one of the live subjects appeared on the monitor, mutated and possessed by one of the entities. Even Zimmerman and his loyal collegues finally began to show fear. Zimmerman then orders his security team to enter the room of the other subject, in which they are attacked by another entity possessing the other host.

They were able to kill the host but at the cost of one of their own men, Frank, who is buried outside. Hurs later, the power went out causing a panic which spiraled into chaos as people began attacking each other to try and escape.

Eventually the remaining entity gets out and kills Zimmerman. His experiment leading to the deaths of countless scientists and men, and leading to the narrator being traumatized by his experience.

Freudian Excuse? Redeeming Qualities?

None. He's willing to use whatever methods for his experiments and projects, and those loyal to him are either just as heinous or simply bought with money.

Heinousness

Frowned upon by other scientists for being seen as a freak and amoral scientist?

Willing to use three innocent people as hosts for demonic entities, leading to their agonizing deaths and torture should they fail or be possessed?

Having no pity or remorse, and simply being overjoyed at the possibility that his project is successful?

Sending in his security team into a room filled with possibly a dangerous murderous entity from another dimension?

Final Verdict

Probably not. Yes and no for me but probably not for anyone else.

Yes to Convex, Walton, Ah Puch, and Zimmerman.

Cut Lijah Cuu; barely passes the baseline in general, and I've always disagreed with the idea that standalone Warhammer 40k series should be taken as separate from the overall 40k universe, since I think they're harder to divorce from the main canon then, say, different Marvel/DC titles with the overall Marvel/DC universe.

Here is a question, are all Warhammer 40k media set in the same universe?

Yeah novels set in a tabletop game universe tend to be Canon to the tabletop unless specified not to be.

It's where most of the information for some of the more wide ranging cms like Lolth and Nicolas bolas come from.

Even though I DO remember a review of a novel that tried to make Fabius freaking Bile sympathetic, but I'm fine just chalking that up to Depending on the Writer.

Fun fact: Even Abaddon cared for Horus at one point, before he went on his Rage Against the Mentor.

Well there is like hundreds of authors for stuff like this.

Obviously some characters will be portrayed differently under a certain writer.

Cyric also had a Simlair thing in forbidden realms for a bit.

Well since the EP has gotten a decent amount of upvotes, I guess I'll do a writeup now.

  • The Harbinger Experiment: Zimmerman, the creator of the titular experiment, is an amoral and ruthless scientist obsessed with the supernatural. Zimmerman constructs a facility in which he tries to summon demonic entities into our world via magic and have them possess three hosts, people who he chose due to being expendable outcasts no one would miss, leading to the hosts' bodies contorting and twisted into horrid forms and shapes. Callously brushing aside the death of one of the hosts, Zimmerman sends his security team into one of the entity's rooms, leading to several of them being injured and one dying. Through his heinous methods of obtaining results regardless of the consequences and refusing to let anyone leave the facility, Zimmerman indirectly lets loose the entities on the facility, killing several scientists and sercurity alike, as well as traumatizing the narrator for life.

Honestly, I'm thinking of just cutting that page, and if someone wants to make it a priority, they can re-create the Sandbox. As of now it's just sitting there.
