I really hadn't thought of him as an end of campaign boss. Just a malign pain that is a constant pain in the side of those try to tackle evil and end cult plot after cult plot. Being as he is not bound to a single cult, as many different worship him I felt he would be an almost never ending antagonist. But I do see you point.

It was writtin with the intent of two things.
1) Showing he has researched some of what he is speaking about.
2) That he is discussing his findings.
The challanging factor in his work as he write it is not a chronological issue, but an issue as he begins to lose the stability of his senses and fall further and further into the darkness he is only trying to discover. The different voices of the piece was on purpose. It intent was to not make perfect sense and the hold on his mind slips further and further along, faster than he thought it would. In the beginning he states that he will go to whatever ends to get this knowledge and that it is more intriguing than he would like to admit.Go to Comment
This is of course something I was writing for my gamers to explain some of the odd items and weapons they were finding, sure they were magical in some aspect. This of course is not an end all to all metals used and is definitely not scientific in its prose but just something I made to make mundane weapons and armor not so normal and boring without throwing magic item after magic item on the table. All numerical bonuses and actual game mechanic numbers were removed in the idea of Strolen's and the GM who uses them to alter them as they see fit.
And this of course is more for my game system as e old timers know, and is not all encompassing for every system out there use and alter as you wish.Go to Comment
