The Darkness

By:

The Darkness is not a group of assassins. They are however, not friendly people.

The Darkness can be hired by those few that know, for a nice sum of course. If they accept a target (how do they choose their victims is unknown), after a short time the victim mysteriously vanishes. Some in need of assasination prefer this, for if there is no body, there is no evidence, and instead of becoming a heir and prime suspect, one can silently steal that wealth, have the woman they love, etc.

Strangely enough, nobody is killed. The sect believes in the coming of an Ueber-human (or dwarf or elf or what), that is subconsciouly battled by the average people, that shall be replaced eventually. So if somebody is to be killed, it may be the ancestor of the True Man! The victim is actually kidnapped by the sect. (The diffilcuty of doing this decides if they do the "kill", and what price they ask for. Consequently, people of real power, with good bodyguards are rarely accepted as targets.)

Despite the saving, these are no friendly guys. The victim is completely brainwashed, and sent into some other cell of the sect, as far as possible. Living in the darkness they must tolerate until the Coming, helped with drugs along, the victim forgets most of the former life, and lives fanatically for the cause.

A good solid idea that I would love too see expanded Manfred.
For now I vote 3.0, but it could very easily ascend with some "outfleshing".

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
