I imagine that the spell to summon it is suitably vague: In a few moments it was done. I had completed the incantation, the ritual to summon 'Ye Chiurgeon fromme Beyonde ye Veil'. Now if the description was right, the powerful entity would cure the deadly, gangrenous wounds and fever that had my fearless comrades on their deathbeds. Slowly, a foul-smelling mist filled the room, causing my allies agonized, labored breathing to echo strangely. A voice rang out hollowly, a voice as painful to hear as nails dragged across a field of broken glass. “Whattt woulddd yewww have of meeee?” it questioned. “Yourrr fellowsss arrrre dyingggg. Woulddd youuu havvve meeee improvvvvve themmmm?”
Much more effective than a simple “Cure Critical Wounds” spell… Go to Comment
Abaseth the Tailor:
A larger and more intelligent specimen of bone stitcher, Abaseth is capable of speech, although he is a quiet individual. Obsessed with his work of improving his work constantly, Abaseth refuses to discuss anything that does not involve subjects of his work, or potential subjects to improve.
Abaseth is in the employ of a powerful demon who uses him to augment his troops. Many fear Abaseth and his techniques, although they are the source of great success for his employer.

So, Abaseth made an appearance in tonight's campaign. My players were suitably disgusted and multiple references to the Chtuhlu mythos were made. He's now captured one of the characters who is going to undergo 'augmentation'.
Could it make you beautiful, if you left it instructions of what you wanted to look like? If you could command it, you probably could do something like that. I know you write that it nothing is made beautiful, but with careful instructions, you theoretically could become beautiful. Go to Comment
Even a character of a reactive sort is fine, with these characteristics.
She has to be a Witch - how long does it take the people to notice she doesn't age, at least not normally?
Not so alone - gold is all fine, but Larkin is missing something: a baby. She might have been an accident... but how can she breed? If she finds out about her true kind, she could try to hire sages for expert advice on dragons. Or find a dragon herself to... try it. Or use somebody (PCs?) to find her a dragon egg. Or whatever.

A well-fleshed out character, with lots of possibilities... I wonder about but one thing - what are her goals, and interests, besides sleeping on gold? So far, she seems to be of the reactive sort. Go to Comment
