Eldritch Locations is an antagonistic trope usually applied to villains like Demons and Lovecraftian Horrors (such as the Elder Beings and the Great Old Ones). They are a special type of Evil Lairs and even Evil Realms. Eldritch locations are usually dark, unsettling places where the laws of physics, geography and others never seem to function properly.
Eldritch Locations take many forms: Lost Worlds, Wonderlands ("Wonder" is not always a good thing) Strange Planets, Incomprehensible Voids, the insides of Eldritch Abominations, Alternate Universes, and ordinary-looking buildings among others.
If it even exists in the same dimension as the insignificant little Blue Planet (Earth), chances are it is either outside the world entirely (and often accessible only by a some kind of gateway; a portal), or located in a strange, unknown corner of the Earth.
Such places like that may have never been seen by man before. If so, expect at least one character, upon seeing it, to widen his or her eyes and gasp: "What is this place?!".
Not all Eldritch Locations are associated with evil however. Others just exist for mere surreal purposes.
