Jewel-of-the-Mire

By:

“Like the Jewel of the Mire, the soul is a bright light along the dark path of time. “
—Scedebus Scholar

Full Description
The Jewel-of-the-Mire is a floating water-flower, that drifts in great mats in the rivers, swamps, and bogs of the Empire. The Jewel-of-the-Mire is similar to the water-lily, even to the point of looking similar, however, the Jewel-of-the-Mire comes in a variety of brilliant colors, ranging from deep indigo to pearly white to blood red. In some places, Jewel-of-the-Mire mats can completely cover the surface of the water, giving the appearance of a great meadow of flowers.

It is, however, at night that the Jewel-of-the-Mire shows its true beauty. During the moonlight hours, the Jewels seem to take on the Moon’s watery luminescence, glowing and releasing slow beads of light (in actuality clumps of the plant’s pollen) into the water below.

Not everything that is good needs to be magical or dangerous.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
