The darkness of clowns is kind of a cultural standard at this point, but it isn't really my personal kind of spook. If you wanted to scare me, it wouldn't hurt to go with zombies. I hate zombies with a passion. And dogs, though somewhat less so. (No offense to your dog personally, if you have one.)

...Zombie dogs.

Zombie dogs? Watch resident evil (any will do).

All of my fears are irrational though, so I have no real say in what someone should and shouldn't have for a fear.

You speedy bastard!

And what about playing the halflife series? Those hamdogs are freaking creepy!

Booooowwwwwwwwww I found those hamdog things more annoying than creepy. I think what creeped me out were the noises the black ops made when you're lost in a maze of crates.

Tell a story about legends and myths in a game. Or, alternatively, clowns.

I guess I'll start. There is a legend in my game world, of the ancient ones. The precursors of dragons. As the legend goes, they drift through the void, and devour all that they encounter, devastating entire words before leaving the planets and traveling to new ones. These creatures creatures approached Earth, and began devouring all life, when a young True Dragon spoke out, saying that this world should not be destroyed. The others turned on the dissenter, and he was forced to fight, and slay his comerades. From their bodies, he created the dragons we know today.

From his virtue, his scales turned gleaming platinum, and he took the name of the lord of all dragons, Bahamut.

That's right, people. The dragons in my game world, the six legged, five hundred hundred meter long, 250 meter tall creatures that are the single most dangerous species on the planet, are the half breed spawn of cosmic horrors.

In case you can't tell, my game world has some EPIC fights.

We were playing a level 20 campaign for a short while, and at one point we came against an Ancient Wyrm red dragon (with lots of caster levels) and his flunkies. We nearly died at the door except that I removed the dragon for a few turns via portable hole and bag of holding while we mopped up minions.

So a few rounds later, when the dragon came back and we'd fought it for a round or two, the bard decided to try a Deadly Performance to kill the dragon by playing a very happy song about a dragon dying of joy. The dragon rolled a 2 on its fort save and died. The entire party was stunned. It was unanimously decided that any bard that can slay a dragon with music deserved their own legend, so we started waxing on about how she was chosen by destiny, yada yada. Basically we gave a Jack Black style drum-up complete with air guitar and obnoxious screaming.

Zombie clown dogs? ...oh, that does sound like a creepy evil thing to throw at a party.

Funny how it takes a moment for Twi to realize the Nightmare Moon part. XD

That's kinda scary, I guess, but it's no spider clown mailman.

Mythos building... Happened randomly in a DnD game with my dwarf when I started playing him. He nearly died (got revived just in time)as he talked about seeing a dwarf ghost. So then he started shouting Thulmar grant me strength in times of need as so forth. Everyone else tried to figure out which god he was worshiping and I just said the dwarf didn't know. For all he knew the dwarf being he saw was a ghost or a death knight.

Then because he started getting popular as it was a critical hit/death blow saying as he did do a lot of crazy stuff (climbed a giant and choked it to death with a chain!) the DM eventually made us go to find an old tomb. Apparently some dwarven lore talked about a being called Thulmar. (Dwarf, god, or undead being was unknown).
From there it started being a world building moment fighting the undead as a necromancer tried to steal a holy relic... It was an axe called De Knee Chapa! (The name I would always call my latest weapon of course.)
Lots of chaos as my dwarf managed to retrieve the weapon after the fight (elven mage caused part of the temple to collapse killing the necromancer.)
And it ended on the question of who this being was and more importantly if he was a good deity or an evil deity. (The elf didn't trust Thulmar by sighting that if he was a good deity or being there would be records that he knew about.)
