The Dreamkin

By:

The various creatures that serve the Bloated Moon.

Dreamkin is the generic name for the half-material, half-ethereal creatures created by the Bloated Moon of Locastus.

By tapping the very essence of the spirit world (the Aetherium), and joining it with the essential salts and vapors of the physical world (the Materium), the Moon is capable of creating new forms of life, often bizarre, but occasonally beautiful in its flagrant abnormality.

The Dreamkin all share certain charachteristics, such as a partial resistance for material concerns such as gravity, nutrient intake and physical injury. Since they do not operate under the same rules as a fully Material creature, one of the Dreamkin is stronger, tougher and faster pound for pound than any natural being.

Due to the spirit-matter interwoven with their physical beings, Dreamkin are never particularly intelligent. Their psyche functions more along the lines of instincts and whims than logical thought. This makes them unpredictable, and have to be slaved to their mistress to function properly. The same etherical component reacts violently to psycic energy and makes them supremely sensitive to psionic assaults or strong negative emotions. Unless they are protected by powerful mental shields, a Dreamkin will instinctually panic and flee from an emotional outburst, if its strong enough.

The Moon has been known to come down heavily on those who hurt or destroy her creations, therefore the people of Locastus leave them alone as much as possible.

On rare occasions, the Moon have given power over some of her Dreamkin to other people. Remus Maal, the Wandering Magus, is said to have been able to command the Orbats, and the Mother Superior of the Guild of Whores can, in times of great need, call upon Nightgaunts to defend herself and her flock.

Hello Ouroboros!

This one is not up to your brilliant standards - it is incomplete and there are (shudders!) spelling errors! Can you touch this one up a bit?

Yeah, val, I agree this one needs a bit of attention. Or perhaps removed altogether...? Its not really necessary...

You could convert it into a stub, then you could come back to it when you wished, but you could still link to it from other subs.

It's neat. I'd like to see this go somewhere.

3.5/5 for now.

Quool's Tide

       By: Murometz

Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.

Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.

Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!

Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
