Good to see interest in the Mogrolyth :D it's my favourite Undead!
In response to Cheka Man: It would take an extremely intense heat to be able to wither through the mogrolyth's flesh and incinerate it's heart, and if by some chance someone manages to force a Mogrolyth into an inferno of flames and kill it, its flesh will burn and crack, but it will not turn to ash. Once the fire is out, The mogrolyth will return to life in a matter of hours. So effectively, having a mogrolyth in the centre of an eternally burning fire will keep it down :)
(A good plot point may be in there, too: "The snowy city of Jamore has had a pyre burning in the centre of their town for centuries. All Jamorans consider this pyre a good luck charm and thus continue feeding it wood to keep it burning. Jamorans always gather around this fire to keep warm and for religious occasions. But this winter, Wood is in short supply, and the city council have decided to let the pyre burn out for the first time in over five hundred years. Unfortunately, none recalled the true reason of the Pyre...
I can see it now...! It starts by everyone just having to adjust to the coldest winter they've ever had. And then... Blood tracks are found in the snow! People start disappearing. Rumours of ghosts, and hundreds of people leaving the city in terror! Truly, the pyre WAS a good luck charm! For now their city is falling apart. Who could possibly find the real reason behind the haunted city save the town from this curse!?))
No, sorry. There is no way to permanently kill it. Any show of end to life would be to deny what the Mogrolyth truly is! However, yes - if you wish to alter it to be able to die permanently for the purposes of your roleplay, by all means!
And Manfred: Maybe you'd like to pucker up to the mogrolyth to test your theory? :D Go to Comment
Why have I never voted on this? I read this in the forums I believe and this was great then and it is awesome now. The journal entry makes this creature more dramatic, more real and life like. I love it... Go to Comment
The pyre plot idea is superb... I still think making it almost impossible to destroy, well if you make the fact you have to destroy it with pleasure than it is impossible, is a bit to much... but I still like it. Go to Comment
Or it could just simply not work. The entire point of those knives is that the deity in charge of death has the target brought to its attention. The deity chooses whether to take the target or not, and since the Mogrolyth has already died and come back (and indeed will continue to do so), the knives aren't likely to work. Go to Comment
My only objection is its ability to never truly die. Perhaps it could be killed in a very hard to accomplish manner? I think this is an awesome idea and will definitely find a way to use it, but I may give it some obscure way to be truly killed. Go to Comment
Wow, SE... I like it. And in regards to the pretty knife thingies, seeing as this undead enjoys reanimating itself whenever it dies, the only way I can see for using this knife to kill it would be to make sure the knife stays in after the critter dies, and make sure it can't pull it out once it reanimates...
