A worthy Occult Guild leader! Great progression and character arc.
"One with the devil" was fun reading, with him carving symbols into his own chest to outwit the demon.
I also really like this spell... "able to cast a crimson haze in the sky which bathes the land a bloody red in a two kilometre radius. Any abilities associated with the moon or moonlight are nullified while under this haze. This includes the Lycanthrope curse."
Powerful, yet somehow subtle, and reminds me of "old sorcery." Go to Comment
Update: The Deadleech was created as a severance fee for abandoning my pledge to the Divine Synod. My punishment was to bestow on the Synod a holy force which was capable of thwarting the undead. Consider the pact sealed. Consider the debt repaid. Go to Comment
Oh ho! I wonder if you may have unintentionally stumbled upon a cure for zombification as well, SE. After all, normal leeches were used to "suck toxins" out of a person's bloodstream. Perhaps the proper application of deadleeches can halt or reverse the spread of the zombie virus within a host, if the person is still in possession of their mental faculties. And if it works for zombie-ism, why not vampirism or other undead diseases like mummy rot? A party's cleric would be wise to keep a few of these with him at all times.
A few questions:
1) These are leeches. Does their adaptation allow them to live on dry land, or will the zombie horde only encounter them while passing through swamps and the like?
2) How do they reproduce? Does it have something to do with the explosion at the end of their lifecycle?
3) Are there any special conditions for keeping them alive? How long can they go without eating? Go to Comment
No worries, Gossamer - I have a nasty habit of not re-reading my subs for grammar/spelling.
I meant Lashing, though Latching can be substituted too. Lashing can mean to beat or strike something, but it can also mean to bind, fasten or tie (Such as lashing ropes together). I am trying to use some creative license to suggest the tendrils are lashing around and onto the other shadow, thus holding him in place.
And yes, due to my haste I misused apostrophes in those particular instances. The lecture was not necessary as I am aware of the particular use of such things, in spite of my error, but I shall take it in stride.
I will mention though, that being too meticulous about pointing out and correcting every single error you see may end up rubbing people the wrong way and tarnishing your own reputation, no matter how noble your intentions.
By all means, point out glaring mistakes, but if someone makes one or two minor errors in an otherwise solid writeup, it's usually a good idea to just let it slide.
Though I am not offended personally, others may be - pride is a dangerous thing :p Go to Comment
Interesting description of a being that eats demons. I wonder if the demons are as easy to catch as humans, or if their souls are comparable in nutrition value. Can the FlickerWikk starve, and possibly lose its power? Go to Comment
