Woodwise was designed for a RuneQuest III campaign I ran many years ago. The sorcerer character wanted a familiar, and in RQ3, familiars can be designed in any of a million different ways. I made Woodwise to tie into an overarching plotline relating to the elves; ultimately it would be found out that there were elvish sorcerers who promoted the attack to seize the knowledge and lore of the Gray Seers, and then later fell into the study/worship of Chaos.



Woodwise's soul was the spirit of a daughter of the elf goddess Aldrya, twisted and warped through foul Chaos sorcery. I came up with a number of possible outcomes: Woodwise could become something of a rogue woodland element, supporting rebellious elves; the PCs coud end up on the run from the remaining elvish sorcerers, undying magical abominations; or, the PCs could try to restore the spirit of the daughter of Aldrya, truly an epic feat worthy of heroes.



I needed to write that better in the submission; ah well, I'll know better for next time.

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
