Ossilyth

By:

Favored minion of the necromancer Warmaker, the Ossilyth is a tank of an undead.

The Ossilyth is a heavy-hitter among undead minions. Undead are normally valued for their cheap, disposable natures. However, occasionally one needs something a bit more substantial to crush ones opponents, and this is the exact purpose for which Warmaker began raising Ossilyth minions.

Standing a solid 2.5 meters in height, almost every inch of an Ossilyth is covered with hyperdense bone, magically gathered and compressed into a ridiculously strong armor plating. Arrows and swords will bounce right off, while war hammers and mauls will merely chip and scratch the surface.

No weapons were deemed necessary for these creatures; Warmaker relied on the sheer mass of their blows to deal damage. As such they have no hands, and in their place sit large bone-hammers.

The face is perhaps the most disturbing part of an Ossilyth: it has none. Where the face would be is just a blank mass of bone armor.

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
