Perhaps the demon realm's first graphic novel,this collection of badly drawn illustrations parodying the Lord of the Desolate Shore and the other arch-fiends of Hell,enjoys a huge following among the imps and other lesser demons that resent the sometimes brutal and always heavy yoke imposed on them by their superiors.
The identity of it's author is unknown,but it is widely held that he was a disgruntled minor demon in the service of the Lord of the Desolate Shore. His master,when hearing about the existence of this most disloyal document from a loyal boot licker,had it's creator put to death,so the popular story goes,but unfortunately not before it was borrowed by a group of the imp's cousins. The most outrageous scene in the book is a particularly lewd one that touches on the famous impotency of the Lord of the Desolate Shore. It depicts him trying to get aroused in the company of his wives,but failing pathetically. Go to Comment
Eshal: Raw slabs of Groll or any other kind of meat,washed down with Sito,a potent brew fermented from the secreations of the male Groll. A good,solid morning meal with which to start a tedious day of work. Go to Comment
I will now proceed to make my own humble contribution to this thread.
Marriage.We all know that marriages are important tools to cement ties with allies,since it makes the other party a member of the family,thus making it something of an obligation to come to his aide.I can imagine that in a high level campaign,a PC involved with a great cause would welcome the hand in marriage of the daughter of a strong chieftain or powerful lord.Tell me what you think of this.

An extremely potent weapon that is powerful enough to hijack the will of others. Not by turning them into mindless zombies like all those other so tiresomely common tools of mind control,but by allowing the user to win their complete trust with impassioned and solid lies. A nice departure. Ruling over an adoring populace cetainly bests being the master of an army of mindless pawns. All in all,this is an excellent item. Unfortunately,it does seem a tad too powerful,and for that I'll have to take a point off.
I like this setting. It reminds me of the salt-rich home of a African dessert people that go by the name of the Afar,with their dessert being a lucrative source of wealth,despite being nigh inhospitable for living.
Just imagine all the horror stories that would be bandied about the savage Akulu and their penchant for torturing and killing any trespassers in their domain. Or the Sand Wryms that battle with the elemental ''godlings'' of the dessert. I can imagine the deeply religious people of that region seeing these encounters as being representitive of the greater cosmic struggle between good and evil. Go to Comment
