Achturardack Sigils


The Achturardackians were pioneers of sigil based magic, and their techniques for building glyphs, sigils and seals remain the foundation of magic inscription.

Achturardack Sigils

The foundation of Achturardackian magic is the use of inscribed seals, that contain magic power and channel that power not through the living body, but through the living image of the sigil. This form of magic is quite powerful and the amount of power that can be channeled through inanimate matter is greater than flesh can hold. 

Sigil Magic

The core of sigil magic is the use of icons, living sigils or signs that are as much mathematical expression as they are pictographic expressions of concepts or ideas. A seal can contain a variable number of individual sigils, and the arrangement of the sigils can have drastic effects on the end product of the seal. The simplest seal is a single sigil enclosed by what the Achturardackians called the Ouroboros. The Ouroborus was a symbol of their God of Beginnings and endings as well as magic.


The Ouroboros is the simplest frame, and effectively 'closes' and completes a seal. All of the original Achturardackian seals were finished with the Ouroboros. There are other more advanced and varigated frames that can be used. The frames can alter the function of a completed seal by changing the meaning of the sigils that they enclose. Complicated seals can contain multiple sigils contained within their own frames, which are in turn enclosed in their own frames. This system can produce large and elaborate magical seals.

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
