Elementallion

By:

A magical catastrophe that changed the world of Kalimon forever

Elementallion occurred as a result of the War of Redemption that the Youlini (meaning ‘shape shifter’ in the ancient tongue of the Zhongha) waged against the alliance of humans, elves, dwarfs and the Clans of the Choca. In particular, the sheer number and intensity of the spells unleashed caused massive instability to the elements of magic on the world of Kalimon. This drove magical elements to flock into living creatures. The direct result of such disorderly incursions is that the life forms that experience these infiltrations are changed in fundamental ways- elementalised. Many intelligent beings die as a result of such a transformation but the majority becomes insane. Furthermore, these creatures bring a “plague” with them- magic becomes unusable within a radius of 50 feet of them.

Alright, I'm going to need a little more context to truly understand what is happening here. First, what are the "elements of magic"? Are we talking elementals -- living, thinking, beings composed of pure air, fire, water, etc? Or are we talking inert magical components of some sort, like frostrock (magical vitamins and minerals, as it were)?

Second, what exactly happens when a creature is "elemantalised"? I'm picturing a common house cat becoming something like a Pokemon (which is pretty darn cool), but maybe you had something else in mind.

The elements of magic are meta components of magic (your analogy of magical vitamins and minerals).
When a creature is 'elementalised', I picture it as some kind of mutation/monsterisation going on mostly so yeah, your house cat becoming Pokemon example would fit right in.

Oh.

I really like this idea of the magic being absorbed (kinda) by living creatures, driving them mad and creating instability in the magic around them.

We wantssss more....precioussss

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
