The Dark Mother


And in those days Man sought to set himself above the God, and sought out ancient evils to bind them to his cause.  Delving into the deepest abyss they brought forth She from whom all inequities flow, bound in the depths before the beginning of time to suffer for her sins.

She was the companion of the God, and together they crafted Man; however even in those days Her envy was great, and she sought to use their creation against the God, and so for Her sins she was cast into the Abyss.

The Dark Mother raised above Man 13 disciples, and gave unto them the gift of Death Everlasting, and in those days she said unto them, go out into the world and spread the Truth of my return, that Man might fear and the very foundations of Heaven might come loose.


Undead goddess motivated solely by her hatred of the god, first she raised up the dead to walk the earth as her slaves, primarily to build her a tower of babel so that she might personally storm the gate of heaven and wreak vengance on the god.

In the beginning of the world she was bound to her tomb deep under the earth, and was wracked eternally by the fires of hell.  until at last she tricked some cabal or another to release her from her prison for some pretty lore or another.  she remained bound for a while longer, with chains of magic, and served mankind as a sort of enslaved tutor.

when she finally broke her chains the sun set on the world for the last time, the dead rose and she began slaying all those who bound her.  with the night came the cold, and the hunger, and in those first days many that had fled originally came and sold themselves or their family to the dark mother, to serve as sources of blood and slaves of her vampiric servants.

ephraim took his disciples underground and founded teh church to fight the dark mother.  ephraim possibly one of the ones who binded her, at least according to apocryphal sources, though to say that is to bring down the wrath of the faithful upon yourself.

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
