Hate to break it to you, but Shinedown is crap.

But that aside... It seems a bit unfocused, and for all the information here, we learn very little about what the creature actually is, looks like, how it behaves. I suppose it's dead, but I'd still like to know about it. Go to Comment

In contrast to the other comments, I think this works fine the way it is; the lack of a description fits the way it functions, a malignant and murderous presence, existing as a kind of personification of near-mindless rage and sadistic hatred. Go to Comment

Musical quality aside.....

While I like the language and presentation of the write up, too much is left to "GM's discression" to be overly useful. Still a fun little idea.

And now the creature might just be hunting those people it was created to destroy, just because.

The thing is now crawling about because it is Evil, killing everyone in a geographic area?

Define what it is doing now, and you will have made big steps to filling out our needs. Go to Comment

This would be a 3/5 vote for me, but the presentation gave it an extra point. I found it enthralling. the aspect of the beast is interesting, and since only two people, now dead, know what it looked like, the DM is free to evince an undead horror (humanoid) best tailored to scaring the crap out of his players, but I cannot escape the image of hungry and malevolent eyes left in a half decayed face.

Shinedown being complete drivel that sold out to a mass movement of 'specialness' aside, me mishearing those lines while I was half asleep helped break a month's worth of writer's block, so I decided that it would be only fitting to put the lyrics in.

*Refrains from saying GM's discresion* I don't know much about my own creation CP, but I'll try to fix your problem. This thing is just senseless rage and sadism personified. It's equiped with an animalistic cunning and a need to torture anything that moves. That cover your question? Go to Comment

A fascinating concept. A little fleshing out and it could be very solid. Go to Comment

Tzaraath

Wandering beneath the trees of Bisaya there are a great many demons, things so horrid that men can barely stand to look upon them, but few can claim to have killed so many, or so thoroughly as the Tzaraath. It is a predator that knows no match, hunting alone through forests that have known an unending night for generations.

It stood at least 3 men tall, this thing, and it reeked of a week-old battlefield, that horrid mixture of burnt and rotten flesh, offal, and hatred. That's all I noticed before it set into us, at which point those of us that weren't running set too it with our axes and spears, only to find that its flesh, where it wasn't half rotted, was as hard as stone. It lashed out about itself, with teeth and claws and spikes that protruded from it's sides and back, like some deranged bear. I was lucky and got hit with the back of one of it's hands, and was flung at least 20 paces. That's all that I remember, sir.
Transcript from one of the survivors of the 31st Imperial Division sent to investigate the interior of Bisaya

The island has a peculiarity about it that leads many men to believe that the island itself is alive, and that it views them as a disease upon their surface. Whether or not this is true, the Tzaraath would seem to support this view. It is one of those things that, without having any purpose to exist, and no means to have even come into existence, do.

It hunts beneath the trees, with an uncanny intelligence born as much from years of being hunted as from being the hunter. During the day it sleeps, hanging from the tree branches like a sloth, wakened only by excessive noise, and at night it wakes to hunt the woods. It hunts hunters, the massive cannibal apes and the large cats and men have all fallen prey to its depredations. Go to Comment

Jungle Lynx One of the smaller hunters on an island that is known for its many ways to die, the Jungle Lynx is none the less one of the most effective killers of men. This isn't because of some supernatural strength, or uncanny intelligence, but because of its pack-nature and their hit and run tactics. The lynx is small, usually only a foot and a half long without its tail, and dun colored with black stripes going vertically through its body. And an individual lynx is rather weak, unable to defend itself besides by running away. In spite of this, they are still to be feared. They'll often attack in groups of 7 to 12, jumping out of the trees and slashing at their victim's face and throat, only to jump off again as its prey begins to defend itself.  They've been known to display a malign intelligence, and will readily attack any part of their victim that it leaves open, if only for an instant.  One of their favored tactics is to swing at the eyes of their prey, only to attack its stomach, or slash at the stomach only to quickly hamstring their victim.  Packs of the Jungle Lynx are able to take down animals 5 or 10 times their size, and a solitary human has almost no chance of survival against a determined pack of them.

Nicely done. I think the format works for me. It is clear and gives some basic points of the religion without too much gobbley gook. Go to Comment
