The Infestarii are a class of demons within the realm of the Fear Eaters. Their appearance tends to vary but what is common is their overall vile nature. Regardless of their form, their skin appears to show things crawling underneath, distorting it's surface. Occasionally breaks will occur in the skin and one or more worms will burst forth. The nature of the infestation also tends to vary, and some suspect that these demons use clues from their victims to select the form most repulsive to the viewer. Some have hideous, human/worm crosses, other have spiders, scorpions, rats or various other small but nasty vermin.

Special Abilities/traits

The contained vermin pose a threat to any in combat with the demon. The demon is able to expel these things with great range and accuracy, and the vermin invariably have a venomous or diseased bite. The vermin are also expelled if the demon should sustain injury from an edged or pointed weapon. Additionaly the demon has an affinity towards naturally occuring vermin and will be able to command any such creatures present.

The Infestarii are capable of all four forms of Possession. 4th degree possession involves the victim disappearing under a horde of vermin with the Demon's normal form emerging from the swarm shortly afterwards..

4 Degrees of Possession:

1st Degree - Mindshadow Demon in question only appears as an evil thought in the subject's mind. Only those on the edge are likely to be affected. Simple interventions can clear this, if the subject is aware of it.

2nd Degree - Power Struggle Demon in question is a major force in the target's mind. Although the subject still has control, this is fragile and could be comprimised by pre-existing mental instability. It may take some effort, but moderate rituals can clear this.

3rd Degree - Possessed Classical possession - Demon is in full control of the victim. Usually requires full exorcism to clear.

4th Degree - Consumed The victims physical form is used to build a physical body for the subject demon. This transformation is usually very horrifying depending on the nature of the demon. It may appear as a simple morphing, like lycanthropes, or more spectacular, including the demon form bursting out of the victims body.
This form of possession should be dealt mechanic-wise as a powerful death spell.

Value to Summoners

The Infestarii as a whole are not known as a great source of knowledge, being better suited for direct missions, generally assassinations. They do have great insight into the human mind in areas of fear and may be of some value to those investigating magics in those areas.


The Infestarii are impressed only by live sacrifices and care nothing for material goods. Go to Comment

Collosum Ignium

The Collosum Ignium are powerful, elementally aligned demons who straddle the realms of Earth and Fire.

Most commonly Minotaur-like in appearence, all of it,save its eyes, are deep black, the color of iron before it begins to glow red. Only it's eyes, the color of red-hot iron stand out.

Special Abilities/Traits

Tied to Elemental Fire, the beasts exude tremendous heat and anything combustable touched by them will burst into flame. The heat put out by the demon's footsteps is sufficent to partially melt earth and stone, leaving glassy footprints behind. Exalting in battle, these demons are quite useful to attack enemies, but that is not the limit of their skills. Their touch alone is sufficent to heat iron bright red and they are valuable in assisting with the creation of metal items. Their breath is hotter then any forge and can allow for manipulation of enchanted metals (Similar to the The Forge of Woe). This breath requires a fair bit of concentration to use so it is rarely used in combat.

These demons can possess victems, but can only consume their physical form. Victims are enveloped by tainted green flame which immolates them. The Demon's normal form then steps out from the green flames and charred husk.

Value to Summoner

In addition to the aforementioned use of their superheated breath, the depths of their knowlege in the domains of the elements of earth and fire will be found to be quite impressive and could assist in those areas of research.

Although live sacrifices are acceptable to virtually all of demon-kind, this type has an appreciation for precious metals. With their intense heat, gold and silver run like water in their hands and then hardens when it hits the floor. They find this greatly entertaining and so have a great love for these materials. Copper and lead are also interesting, but being duller then gold and silver, are less desirable. Materials which flare up or catch fire are also of interest to these demons. Go to Comment

Interesting, but the name does bother me - the old Dragon magazine had a graphic series by Larry Elmore called Snarfquest and that sticks with me.

The 'mothering' effect of it's gaze is okay if this is a magic effect making this a magical rather then natural creature.

There are a couple of typos and oddly structured sentences as well.

But I agree, it is not utter crap :) Go to Comment

What Wulfhere said. There is a lot of substance here, but the sentence structure and some choice of words are odd.

eg. She meet a man named Draco who was as good looking as ever.

We do not know Draco, and neither does Shayla. The 'as good looking as ever' does not work for this sentence. I'd cut it to "She met a good looking man named Draco" or something similar.

There are a lot more places where work is needed. The idea is there but at this point it is a diamond in the rough. Very rough.

Will hold off on my vote for now, as it it would be a 2.0 (Idea's there - needs work). Go to Comment

I'm planning on adding more - this post was a leaf with no branches (yet).

Docking half a point for a couple of odd characters seems a bit extreme, given how many other posts are filled with enough accent characters to choke a horse.

But then again, I'm not supposed to comment on how people vote, considering how mad I get when someone does that to me. So, lesson learned. I will substitute acceptable words for profanity (even though I think it has it's place). Already done on this post. Go to Comment

They are currently implemented as a form of stub - the targets are public in work.
And they will be filled out more as time allows.

Mazetown stands right around the entrance to the Maze, and its whole economy depends on the people coming to visit the ever-changing and apparently sentient dungeon. They don't get all that many visitors, but the ones that do come tend to be rather generous in their spending; after all, if anything you take inside vanishes as soon as you go in, and everyone who manages to come out usually does so with fabulous treasures in tow, why not spend your coin on R&R before getting started?
