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.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
