I’ve made a few creatures to be used in the Under Dark for South Reaches. These are creatures that I created for The Fractured Mountains originally. The ones here are the Ankyloslime and the Strange Salamander. These have not been playtested so the listed CR may be incorrect. The links lead to their D&D Beyond page. Continue reading →
Rajendra knew that there were temples built to him, but he didn’t understand why. He was the worst excuse for a god in all of Nevre, but he was still worshiped as one. Some of his worshipers thought that maybe he would dispel their fears while others used his powers to cause fear in others. Very few realized that fear was his secondary domain even though his title was The Coward.
The Coward’s main domain was cowardice, the opposite of bravery. For this reason, he had a shaky relationship with The Warrior, but Kemp still recognized him as the rightful king so he tried to help. Not that it did any good. Whatever power was released when the stone exploded heightened personality traits. This was Rajendra’s curse. He would always be a coward, no matter what. Continue reading →
Ao and T8-T3 started the descent down the stairs into the Darkside cave. T8-T3 moved in front of Ao, cautiously and slowly.
“Hey, Tate, you don’t need to move that slow. I know your sensors are faster than that.” Ao hopped over the small droid. “Look, there’s a pair of crystals calling me. I’m not going to rush, but what you’re doing is overkill.” Continue reading →
Mrto felt the explosion deep in his core. The screams of the dying and the sudden silence fueled his dark powers. He absorbed as much of the suffering as he could from where he was and used some of it to finish breaking the bars in his cell. The tremor following the explosion had bent them, but not enough for him to escape. He ran to where the guards had taken his belongings and took them. He also took some of the other items. The other prisoners were dead and would no longer be needing them, anyway. Continue reading →
A small, pinkish vine climbed the landing strut of the shuttle. It disconnected from the ground and hid in the mechanism for retracting the strut. When it came time for takeoff the vine went unnoticed. Once the lander was securely attached to the ship the vine searched for a way onboard. It had only a limited time before it died of exposure to hard vacuum, and barely found a way to activate the airlock in time. It shed the dead outer layers of its cells and searched for the pantry. It needed to gain strength for the next part of The Great Plan. Continue reading →
Kemp stood on a battlefield covered with the blood of humans and skravyn. This war would later be known as the first skravyn-human war. The Warrior planned to stand on the side of the humans, being one himself, until he heard the human king order the army to kill the women and children.
“They are not people. They are animals. Slaughter them like animals!”
A righteous fury burned brightly in Kemp at that statement. He had never felt such fury before. In his rage he acted for The Vengeance. He walked calmly up to the king. Nobody stopped him. Maybe they recognized him, maybe they saw the great anger on his face. He wasn’t sure, but Kemp always remembered the look of the young prince’s face as he killed his father in front of him.
