The Drinkers were purged by clerics of the light after the Dark Gods' fall (I didn't state this, and I will make an edit tomorrow 'cause it's around 1 AM here), which also accounts for why they're not as feared - no more strength in numbers.

The ink is their blood, in a way, it's what keeps them alive. They feed on it, and it is absorbed into their bodies at which point they feed once more. They were created this way so that they were forced to continually drink up books to survive...heck, they might not even want to do it, but they have to! Go to Comment

Hmmm, a very cool thought that never even crossed my mind. Now, an Ink Drinker wouldn't just saunter up to a cleric of the light and start sucking on his arm, but to a dark mage or a deacon of Durnthar? Sure! At the very least, a dark mage with a wraith curled around his fist would look cool as heck. Perhaps they could use them as conduits through which they could commune with Durnthar himself? That would take some working around, but it's a great concept. Go to Comment

You know, that's a really, really cool idea! Just think of it - a warrior clerk, a barbarian librarian, a paladin of the Church of Dewey Decimal. All joking aside though, it'd be a really quirky concept, and would make for some great NPCs. Anyone want to develop that? If not, I'm sure I could put aside some time. Go to Comment

"These days, only a few Ink Drinkers remain"- why? what happened to them?

"Should the Drinker be gorged on ink, the object or body part passed through it will be soaked and splashed with it"- LOVE IT!

"Some Drinkers have even used this to their advantage, flying into other's faces and dousing them in ink"- so is the ink sustenance for them, or "just their job"?

"Ink Drinkers are not the feared swarms of destruction they once were"- why?

SparK!- I only ask these questions, because I love the concept!!

I understand your idea completely, I think, but could use a tad more explanation to wrap it all up and make it complete. Go to Comment

ask some questions, get some answers. Insidious creatures! Next weekend's game session revolves around a library. I might have to introduce one of these bad boys, just as the PCs find that ancient, dusty tome they have been looking for. Go to Comment

Freaking awesome post. I love unusual monsters that don't do the same old stuff and that take special means to kill. Inspiration comes from the strangest places at times. Wonderful idea. Go to Comment

Have not voted on this before. A travesty I have now corrected.

Are there active hunters of these creatures, saviors of knowledge, crusading librarians? Go to Comment

A good piece.



I can see why this, in combination with the Niyott would be very.. Difficult.

People started using the Internet, that's why. Those suckers can't drink electrical signals! Gives'em a stomach ache, or kills'em, or somethin'. Go to Comment

Stunning work here.
Another thing that will surely be included in my upcoming steampunk game. My players won't know how to handle them... I particularly liked the idea someone came up with of one of these demons showing up just as the players find the ancient tome they were hunting for :) Go to Comment

This is what a Codex was meant for! All feel free to add to it.
