In English and the footnotes works
As its name says, the Nightmares of Oog, are a kind of Nightmare
and, although they are not horse-like (hipoform) sensu stricto
, they can take the appeareance of Hipoform nightmares
(or even wolf-like
These nightmares metabolize the emotions that extract their victims, both happiness and fear, transforming all these sensations into malignant emotions 1
Nightmares of Oog are composed directly of emotion: mixture of mild fear and terror. Their favorite victims are children and adolescents, not feeding on anything other than these victims (except in extreme cases).
The Nightmares of Oog, however, will not hesitate to terrorize other beings to death but leaving their corpses intact. Since their power resides in the mind and subjectivity of their victim's fear, they always choose dark, gloomy, frightening, abandoned places or an amalgam of all this, which increases their influence on the victim and their possibility of success. In these places Oog's Nightmares sometimes commit murders of several children at once, not content to empty their interior, lacerate and mistreat their bodies with and without life in multiple ways.

When the Nightmares of Oog they need happiness in their diet, they change their habits, dwelling in shadows, like that of an object, or a cave and being strictly nocturnal. When night falls, they abandon their shadow and go to stalk and kill their victims. When they see them, they emit a terrifying howl that paralyzes them. Moment that they take advantage of to extract the happiness of their body 2
In Oog they are very feared. The name of the Plane where Oog is located is not known. In the "Xyyäsarl Bhýtas" ("List of the Planes" made by the Dussians
) this Plane is named simply as Plane of Oog (Bhýtâs-Oog).
