I'm not sure I did a great job of explaining what, exactly, I'm looking for in my recent question, Are there any gods or godlike entities in D&D associated primarily with fear? . I'm basing my parameters on a podcast I listen to that's heavily inspiring my campaign, and I'm not sure if it'd serve the question to refer to it.
On the one hand, if anyone who is familiar with the podcast stumbles across the question, they'll know exactly what I'm looking for; on the other hand, I fear that the reference might drive away people who have useful expertise but assume they can't give me a good answer because they don't know what I'm referring to. (The same goes for anyone in the future who goes searching for fear-focused gods; I suspect it might make for a worse Q&A experience for them, as the answers (if they exist) may seem specifically tailored to this one reference.) The podcast itself is relatively popular, but not explicitly related to tabletop games in any way.
In this case, the podcast, The Magnus Archives, deals heavily with entities that are created by the power of fear, and feed off of the fears of living creatures-- the key thing, for my question, is that they didn't so much create those fears, but are responding to the primordial fears of living creatures: death, disease, predation, etc. Essentially, rather than being fueled by the power of belief, as is common in D&D, they are fueled by the power of fear, and seek only to further that fear. This is established as a primary plot point relatively early in the podcast, which has been fully finished for a bit now, so it's reasonable to assume that any listener would be familiar with this concept.
So: Do I include the reference for the sake of potential clarity, or do I leave it out because it might be needlessly confusing?
