This should have been posted by me a while ago  :poet:

(weird) creatures common to the setting:

Deodands: Deodands are humanoids which look like handsome, muscular human men, but twice as tall, with "dead black lustreless skin and long slit eyes." They are strong, murderous, and carnivorous creatures, but can be killed with offensive spells, which they fear. They can be made to serve by the more powerful wizards, but are always looking for a weakness in their master, which they can exploit.

Oasts: Oasts are creatures which appear to be very tall humans with pale skin, blonde hair and blue eyes, but are actually no more intelligent than livestock, and are kept as such. Some wizards and a few tribes of barbarians use them as food, mounts, and beasts of burden.

Twks: The Twks are tiny greenish men who ride on dragonflies. They are useful sources of information, and are willing to sell their knowledge. By the same token, they can be bribed to lie to others. The usual form of payment is salt, which they crave for unexplained reasons.

I must regretfully decline. I have a conflict.

ooc  - I would like the story started before we start discussing in-character logistics. Thalonin, for one, would never share his spellbook with anyone. He thinks all other disciplines of magic are waning, and has little interest in them :)

My first draft is assuming we do in fact start off in our own humble abodes, and also assumes Muro will open a separate thread for the actual game posts rather then our characters and chat here...

Thalonin the Pestilent

Appearance

Under cover of Illusion - Normal

When he chooses to make himself apparent, he appears as a merchant of fine goods. A long deep blue silk robe with the tips of overlong pointed shoes emerging at the bottom.  Black, perfectly tailored gloves and a shining black skullcap.  Long, salt-and-pepper hair frames his fine-featured face with his clear, blue eyes.

Under cover of Illusion - Low profile
A simple beggar, shabby clothes and worse smell. Old but looks even older due to the ravages of a life of want.

Without Illusions
Tall, and thick of frame, if not quite flabby. Skin of healthy pallor and with long unkempt hair.  He has long been transferring the ravages of time to others so appears - and is - far younger than his years.  Unremarkable even, with dark brown hair and eyes.  He wears numerous rings and small items of jewelry, along with a simple black silk robe with hundreds of hidden pockets, many magic. Some are full on portals to other worlds from whence he can draw upon things best left alone.  While not overpowering, he is constantly followed by an unwholesome odor - the mark of his studies into pestilence.

Magic
His magic is drawn from the realms of Pestilence and Illusion.  As the world dies, the scavengers and parasites grow fat. He foresaw the ascension of this domain early in his studies, aware of the chipping away of reality. He knows too, that even the rats and cockroaches will turn on each-other just before the end.   He specializes in weakening and misdirecting his foes.

Lair

Deep underneath the streets of Old Place - even lower than the cavernous sewers, can be found his demesne. Tunnels gnawed from the living earth by vast worms that he brought for the purpose.  They have long since departed the City, leaving long tunnels out to various corners of the world.
Here he maintains a menagerie of strange and foul creatures from beyond, as well as entire herds of swine he uses both as food and as surrogates for the price of his magic. He has a few of his enemies held here as well - serving as surrogates with the swine.

Personality

Remarkable aloof and unconcerned with most things beyond his personal survival.  He has an overriding fear of his own death, and has built layer upon layer of contingencies to protect himself.   He is torn between his efforts to survive to see the end of the world, and to act to perhaps delay this outcome.

Citadel Tavern / Re: Epub Issue 4
« Last post by axlerowes on March 27, 2017, 08:25:51 PM »
 :cthulhu:

It is official.  The theme for issue 4 is Eldritch Horror. 

A Gothic Landscape;

Unspeakable Corruption;

The Smallness of the Human Condition;

A Touch of Madness and a Taste of Power;

And Prose so Purple you'd think it was living it with Ike Turner;

Yup subbest sub-genre of the sub-genre.  I am excited and a little intimidated.


The epub has pushed me and others to write more, and to write more complete and accessible stories. It isn't easy and I have started more stories than I finished, but I did finish stories. And it is fun. I have enjoyed reading and working on all the stories.

Let's shoot for completed and publishable drafts (proofing and copy editing aside) by the end of June.

Freeform Roleplaying / Tlot-Tuk, the Land of Liars

My friends, my friends, let me tell you something. Once, when I was younger I did travel down the river Tlot-Tuk, all the way to where it's waters start, the fabled city of Tlot-Tuk itself. There, the streets are paved with riverstones that are clear as running water, and the women are so gorgeous that to stare at them it to invite blindness, or insanity. A man there told me the secret was that there was a temple deep in the hinterlands of of the Tit-Tluk, a place forbidden to all but those brave and foolish enough to go. I sought out the temple, but nay, I never found it. Instead I found terrible things, insects that speak with the voices of children, and things that look like old men, but they are fungus and hunger for the flesh of the living, and eagles who shed golden feathers.

That is where I got the golden tattoos on my arms you see, for I did seek the temple, and came back to Tlot-Tuk, mad from the forest and half starved. To you I might just be a drunk and beggar, but in Tlot-Tuk, I am a holyman
