Children of the Lord of Black Pleasures    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Local)

The Children of the Lord of Black Pleasures were once a cult to be feared.  Nothing was too depraved, no torture to extreme.  They might come back once more.

Engel, the Sorrow of Agony    NPCs  (Minor)   (Mystical)

"I don’t like that one.  He’s creepy.  There’s something not right in the head with him.  Course, I don’t much imagine that’s uncommon here, but he goes further than the rest of ‘em.  I think he actually *likes* what they do to him."

Kane, the Sorrow of Justice    NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)

"There are ideas that are so fundamental that without them, civilization could not exist.  The most inviolate, the most important, is justice.  If men do not hold rigorously to what is just, then society cannot live.  I will not allow those who would ignore something so vital simply because it does not suit them to persist in doing so."

Hisa, the Sorrow of Vengeance    NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)

There are some people who just lay down and die if someone hurts them.  Some people forgive those who hurt him.  And some… well, some decide to punish the people who hurt them.  Me?  Not even death can stop me from having my revenge.  Not my death, not his death.  They’ll all pay.

X-Jacks    Systems  (Mystical)   (General)

I have never been happy with the way that magical constructs were presented in games.  Admittedly, a large statue stomping the surrounding countryside is an impressive image.  But the logic (or lack thereof) involved has always bothered me.

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.
