Ghilms'Kurch'En , The Flaming Blot
Long ago, when the Demon Lord Akxx'N'Kurch forged the flaming blade Kurchyynwraize on the lowest layer of the Blood forge, an Evil residue seeped into the mortal realm's ocean. It took the form of a shadow and abhors the light granted to mortals by the Gods. Ghilms'Kurch'En is that residue. A black soul among the wakes of life, it hungers for firey destruction and smoldering death. The beast combusts in a ferocious way when exposed to air, and uses this as its primary means of attack.
Life of a Flaming Blot
Ghlims'Kurch'En lives, if you can call it living, in the seas to the north. It seems to enjoy beaching chunks of itself on top of icebergs and letting the flaming goo melt them over time, destroying the habitat of some animals. Many adventures to the Northcap are interrupted by Ghilms'Kurch'En as it seeks to destroy the truely living.
Ghlims'Kurch'En occasionally leaves the icy region in search of prey. About once every 7000 years, on the day of its creations, Ghlims'Kurch'En goes on the hunt. It will seek out and attempt to destroy ships with its volatile body.
The Purpose of Ghilms'Kurch'En
The Infernal Tide, Ghilms'Kurch'En, is a big nasty beast that is nigh indestructable and rarely encountered. This creature should mainly serve as a means of destroying an major artifact (Such as the flaming blade Kurchyynwraize) or acquiring a powerful spell component (To give that Fireball an extra kick).
