Update: I really want to do a write up for the cult inspired by White Death. (And shamelessly borrow Muro's graphic imagery involving deranged cultists hacking off the hands of their victims). But that will have to wait until I'm done with the short story that I'm writing for the wizard themed E-Pub. Go to Comment
My favourite by far are the demonic elks. I can definitely envisage some very brave adventurers trying to steal a few from their nomadic owners in order to sell them as steeds to some aggressive, warlike kingdom. But the other creatures featured in this entry also make for interesting read in their own right. I do enjoy the overall macabre tone of the animals that they've encountered so far. Excellent job.

A novel concept that has been executed rather well. I can imagine the chaos that would ensure if some PCs mistook this entity for a run of the mill zombie. Btw, would it be possible to communicate with this sentient bow? Go to Comment
You're right, Scras. This sub was actually somewhat inspired by a book on Vodoun that I was reading at the time. I've always found syncreitic religions to be fascinating. Also, thanks for the welcome, Kassy and Scras. It's good to be back. :) Go to Comment
Read the sub and I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely.. The title alone is worthy of applause . Also, with the author's approval, I'd just like to write a sub based on the recently arrived frog people. Go to Comment
The village sits on the edge of the deep fjord, often engulfed in mist or rain. Its people are fishermen, who work even through the sea-ravaging winter. And they pray to the gods of the deep.
At the beginning of every winter they hold a summoning ceremony. Three boats are taken out into the fjord, a hornsman on each. The mournful horns are blown in the language of the whales, the gods of the deep. The whales sometimes appear in answer to these calls, and it is taken as a good omen when they do.
To a party of PCs wandering the misty hills and valleys nearby however, the doleful whalesong of the horns can be disturbing and misinterpreted...
