Hi, I'm Muro, and I love vile and disturbing undead thingies.

Group: Hi Muro. Don't be afraid to share your feelings here...tell us of your recent progress.

Me: Well, I've been trying hard. Real hard. Yesterday i almost wrote out a bile-dripping, brain-sucking, amniotic fluid-producing creature. Then I caught myself, and read a book on Unicorns and the fairy elves who ride them instead. Every day is a battle.

I have an image to go with it. I'll try to link it tonight. I thought of the questions you asked about but due to time and the formatting messing up on me I forgot to add them. I'll fix it tonight. Go to Comment

Updated with a small bit of information per Dosstas' suggestions. And here is a link to an image that inspired said thought. Although the skull in the image rests on what seems to be a golden goblet, the Moira Chalice of Kormak rests on a similar base although it is made of blackened bone.

Moira was known as the three fates... possible more items coming soon to maybe make a trio of fateful necromantic items.

Sorry can't help myself...


"Kalima, KAH-LEE-MAAAAH!!!"


"Indy!"


"I'm coming Shorty!"


Love it. Creepy, eldritch and necromantic! Makes you want to take a quick shower. Of course the image helps as well! One question. Why Moira? What does it signify? Why is this dread chalice of doom, named after an irish lass?

A dark piece. I like the way you've added a paragraphs of what I think are eyewitness accounts.

Well done Mourn.

You're really taking this necromancy thing to a new level Mourn -- lots of great subs from you lately. This one was particularly squicky. I loved the imagery you used for the chalice, with the tongue being used as a spout. I was wondering about the liquid within, though. Is it replenishable, or is there a set amount that was created at the same time as the Chalice? If you can make more, I assume that it's poured through the hole in the top of the head. But how do they keep the rest of the liquid from spilling out of the mouth? Can Kormak command the mouth to open and close at will? (If so, ewwwww). Oh, and can the chalice rest upright on that bone, or is there a base of some kind? Go to Comment

Man. Could only think how bad that would really suck.

And this only goes to prove that Mourn is a closet Dwarf lover that won't admit it. That is what it tells me axle. It could count as a Necro for the post and Dwarf Guild points for comments and upvotes. :) Go to Comment

Being undead, could a dwarf dunk his beard in Holy Water to be rid of these vile pests? And are they limited to dwarven beards? Can they infest other races? Go to Comment

Poor Dwarves. Other races could easily be rid of them, but not the dwarves without gross embarassment. Go to Comment

Discovered this while doing a little research on the subject.

Apparently something I failed to put in there. While they seem no more than a nuisance at first, if left unchecked they will eventually drain the dwarf afflicted completely. Once that happens, they burrow further into the dwarf and it is raised as undead. I'll fix that and add it in tonight. Go to Comment

Many have tried to use this in an attempt to be rid of them, and indeed it has some affect on the fleas. But like their live counterparts they are extremely resilient. While it does rid them of most of the fleas, one or two usually survive. This is unknown why. Perhaps their undead eggs are immune to the affects of the holy water being as they are not currently undead and in a somewhat live, breeding state. Something I will also add later. 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...
