Ghlims'Kurch'En

By:

In the dark one morning, the Bloated Black Beast slowly rose to the water's surface. Whence it crested, great gouts of flame erupted from its Misshapen Form and were hurled hundreds of feet in all directions. It dove again, and appeared as nothing more than an Inky Shadow of Malice. With no purpose, It swam on; occasionally cresting and flaming, but still without purpose.

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).

Typo alert- 2 "ins" being typed as "is". 1st one- 2nd last line of 1st paragraph. 2nd one- 1st line of 2nd paragraph under Life of a Flaming Blot.

I think my vote is the essence of my comment- "Good solid idea. Nothing fancy, just a great, useable, quality submission"

Somehow, though, it reminds me of global warming. Maybe in the fantasy world, melting of ice in Arctic isn't due to global warming but rather to Ghlims'Kurch'En!

Good for when the PCs need a huge monster to fight.

Can't say I'm enthralled. It is more a kernel around which a good sub could be built.

Have to agree with Echomirage - is a brief sketch where a picture would be better. There is most certainly the promise of something better here!

I am going to go with Moonlake in that this is a solid idea and it is useable-plus I liked it. it is reasonably unique-the evil oil slick has been done-but combined with your post about it origins, I think this is something I may use.

Nice

An intelligent flaming oil spill monster. I think this is the better of the two subs, and it could be expanded, the weapon being the intended product, but the Ghilms'Kurch'En being the unexpected and potentially more valuable weapon. I could see it being an accidental discovery, and something that the infernal would certainly explore.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
