(WARNING: THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE IS VERY VERY WEIRD)

"This is the LCL Sea. We are inside the sea where life began. A world without A.T. Fields... without your own shape. An ambiguous world where it is impossible to tell where you end and other people begin. A fragile world where you exist everywhere, and thus exist nowhere."

- Rei Ayanami, The End of Evangelion

What is an Eldrich Place? 0253

In a fictional-land, some places just don't agree with the laws of physics, geography, and the way we understand the world.

Eldritch Places take many forms: Lost Worlds, Wonderlands, Strange Planets, Incomprehensible Voids, the insides of Cosmic Abominations, Alternate Universes, ordinary-looking buildings...basically, wherever the author decides could use some weirdness.

These are usually depicted as bad places, but not always. The ones that aren't are usually sources of Surreal Humor.

If this place is a planet or country, then it will often feature an Weird Sky, as well as Surreal Critters or Cosmic Abominations by the herd. Expect all geometries to be Alien or Sinister. However, like any self-respecting Lovecraftian Story, you can bet this is only a small part of its fundamental strangeness.

If it even exists in the same dimension as our Insignificant Little Blue Planet, chances are it's either outside the world entirely (and often accessible only by a Cool Gate), or located in a strange, unknown corner of the Earth. It may have never been seen by man before. If so, expect at least one character, upon seeing it, to widen his eyes and gasp: "What is this place?!" Or "Where are we!?"
