Asarth Awrun


An elder lich recently returned from a journey across the worlds who seeks an artifact of ancient times.


Beneath his heavy cloaking and wrappings, Asarth is hideous. A withered skeletal being, his eye sockets burn with violet flames. To prevent people from seeing him, however, Asarth wraps himself in mouldering cloaks and bandages, and tops it off all with a wide-brimmed traveller’s hat. Because the flesh on his hands and fingers is flaking off, he often fiddles with his leather gloves, pulling them up and down (Never revealing himself, of course) and he often reaches beneath his wrappings to scratch his neck and face when the necrotising tissue bothers him. Though less arrogant than most liches, Asarth has the haughtiness of an elf, and bears an aura of self-righteous superiority to go along with the muffled stench of his rot.


Even to those who know his true nature, Asarth Awrun is a mystery. He travels by whim, it seems, and wherever he goes, slow disease and death follow. Greybeards and scholars note that the mysterious Awrun seems to have particular interest in places where stories tell of long lost coastlines, islands, mountains and other disappeared locations. Perhaps this could be a clue to his identity. Or perhaps its not. Only Asarth truly knows.

Nice description of him, but having his past and motivations would make him more useabl.

1) Another searcher for our Sword of Unattainable Glory perhaps?

2) Maybe he is sick of living and knows the key to his self-destruction could be in the same place that mass destruction happened in times past.

I'm just not sure what I should do for his past. Use your imagination. Make somethin' up. Oh, and it has to have something to do with the sunken peninsula (See Unnatainable Glory Plot)

Bringing forth an old spectre from the depths of the Citadel, a submission from 2003, when our standards were not as they are now. Also, one of the former members I would like to see return to the Citadel, if he is still out there, wandering somewhere.

The basic commentary on the submission would be a default link to Moonhunter's Gold standard guidelines, as Asarth is, we have a description and a vague motive and a hint of a goal.

This would be a worthy submission for being expanded on/rewritten for the Citadel at large, so long as it was done in the lofty Melnibonean/Lovecraftian style of the Good Penguin himself

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
