Cult of the Red Pantheon


Scattered across the world are the worshippers of the Red Pantheon: Damascus Fellnorn and Xak the Fiendish, two godlings on a quest for world domination who command hordes of undead and many skilled swordsmen.

Stolen away at birth from their mortal parents, by a mad necromancer seeking godhood for himself, these two young demigods have attracted a following in the hundreds only a few weeks after slaying the necromancer that raised them. Damascus: Son of the Dragon Mother, Swordsman without equal, and known for his habit of disemboweling people at random. Xak: Son of The Reaper, Master of the Necrotic Arts, and the line between life and death known for raising undead abominations and charming anyone who meets his gaze.

These two godlings have used their powers to take over an entire kingdom, accquire the worship of an elven nation by saving them from an invading orcish horde, and they even fund a insane wizard’s quest for magical artifacts.

Damascus is primarily worshipped by the kingdom that has been taken over and at it’s castle he trains all young men to become elite fighting machines wielding the type of sword he crafted in his own name: the Damascus. Damascus’s worshipers are known to be terrible womanizers and for their incredible bloodlust.

Xak the Fiendish is primarily worshipped by the Elves that were saved from the Orcish invasion. Whenever an Elf dies (or any other follower of the Red Pantheon) Xak brings them back as an undead servant/warrior to help in the quest for world domintation.

The worshippers of the Red Pantheon range from Necromancers seeking immortality to cunning warriors seeking to overthrow Damascus as master swordsman of the lands ruled by the Red Pantheon. Even as you read this the Red Armies are preparing to sail across the eastern ocean in boats stolen from Black Molly the Sea Hag and her Orge Crew.

I fear for the safety of whatever lies beyond that eastern seas because the unholy armada of the Red Pantheon is on it’s way the top, not even the gods themselves can stop this duo. They have tried… but their titan messanger was slain when Xak possessed Damascus’s sword and enhanced it’s powers ten-fold. Even I do not know that these terrible being are truly capable of and fear these will be the worst times your world has ever seen…

This is interesting, though it could stand some polishing...a good bit of polishing. The two godlings are certainly powerful, and unless this is set in an anime style superfantasy well out of the normal PC's ability to confront. While there is nothing wrong with the idea of a military coup and a magical backed elven revolution (elven bolsheviks?) the power is just too high.

This seems incomplete. I feel like I am missing some pieces. It should go back to Pieh's sandbox/ working space until it is ready to be released.

Not overly drawn out. They are solid one dimensonal villians that a group of heroic PCs could really sink their teeth into.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
