Vodai, the White Child    NPCs  (Major)   (Mystical)

There are some types of evil that are not easily recognizable as such. Much like the mountain-top ascetic or the cloistered saint, there is no obvious sign of the darkness that lurks inside Vodai.

The Awakened    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (City/ Ruin)

"We're nothing new.  We've always been here.  YOU're the newcomers.  You're the animal that forgot that it was a man.  Stop crying, you animal, you sleepwalker!  If you opened your eyes for only an instant you would see that.  You're a race of amnesiacs, of dreaming children.  I said STOP CRYING!  You disgust me.  That's why I'm not going to explain anything else.  That's why you will die--screaming--without ever having truly woken up.  I will paint every inch of this floor with your blood."  

-An Awakened, formerly Ms. Albright, speaking to Albert Frond, immediately before his murder

Hagula    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

I try to avoid them if I can.  I see them sometimes herding their flocks of flabby grey creatures into and out of Boston harbor, and it always gives me the chills.  Briano tells me that they brought me back to life, but I can't remember it.  I can't remember a lot of stuff.  He also tells me that I was good friends with one of them once.  One of the ones that begs outside of Grand Island Bank for nickels or blood.  I can't tell you why I'm uncomfortable around them.  They're just fish.

Psuedo-Imaginary Dinosaurs    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Forest/ Jungle)

We were crossing a ridge when Corgan was lifted off the ground by something.  "Shoot it!  Shoot the tyrannosaur!" he screamed as blood streamed from the puncture wounds that had opened up in belly.  I fired into the empty space above him to no effect.  Then Corgan's ragged corpse dropped to the forest floor, and I was alone.  Utterly alone.  There was no dinosaur.  There was nothing.

The Hollows of Teragaius    Locations  (World)   (Underground)

A dangerous, alien plane where glowing frog-slimes slither and slurp, metal-skinned bird people rebuff diplomacy, and only the endless subterranean tunnels are safe (just mind the gravity-bending moles).  Visitors will have to skulk around in the dark to avoid the curse carried by the sunlight.  Because (have I mentioned?) the sun is the source of a powerful curse--one that covers the whole planet.

Just in Time    Articles  (At Table)   (Game Mastering)

So you’ve finally done it.  With the best of intentions all around the table, your PCs have finally blundered into the blender like curious gerbils, and now they are hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned.  They are doomed, unless you unleash Secret GM Gambit #4 on them.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
