Negev

By:

Negev demons can take the shape of humans or elves and feed on emotions rather then on meat or vegtables.

In their normal form they appear as grey skinned humanoids, with glowing blue eyes and a small mouth that serves for speaking and breathing rather then eating.Instead of arms they have long tentacles, each with three claws on the end which can give a nasty scratch to a human. In combat one tentacle will try and entangle a person’s arms whilst the other tries to rip the eyes out.They prefer not to fight without reason,however,as if cut off the tentacles take two weeks to fully regrow.

They feed by pinning a person’s arms and placeing their lips on the person’s forehead, and without causing physical harm they suck out a person’s feelings of love,anger,rage,passion…all the strong feelings. A person drained like that will not regain such feelings for days or even,in some cases, for weeks.

There are people,some of them living in the Crystal City,who willingly allow themselves to be fed upon to remove unwanted feelings, so in some areas these demons are welcome.Others, through their own choice or through bad luck, have to ambush humans,through shape-changing or simple sneaking, to get their food.

When summoning one of these demons,it is best to remain polite at all times and not show any strong positive or negative feelings, as that would be like dangling a bone in front of the jaws of a hungry dog.

If they do get into a fight, these demons prefer to blind rather then kill their opponents, as a warning to those who would harm them.

The emotion eating aspect is interesting, as is a society where these demons would welcomed, even in a controlled manner is worthy of further examination. Otherwise this sub is a bit short.

I agree with Scrasamax on this one.

Hmm. You could have someone acting as a spy deep in a hated enemies lands - so hated that it is hard for the spy to maintain control. He keeps one of these carefully bound in his quarters that he 'feeds' with his loathing for his enemy.

Perhaps with enough 'feeding', the demon will become something... else.

A solid idea that holds at least a bit of potential of-yet untapped. I'd like to see this one revisited. BUMP!

Corpse Herders

       By: Murometz

The Jiangsi was the name of an undead being in Chinese folklore and mythology. Usually translated as zombie or vampire for Western palates, the Jiangsi was really neither. They appeared as simply risen, fresh corpses. They moved (peculiarly!) by hopping rather than walking, and sought out the living to suck the Qilife force from their victims.

Perhaps significantly more interesting than the Jiangsi itself, was the lore surrounding them. "Zombie wranglers", or "Corpse Herders", usually Daoist priests, were men tasked with delivering these undead beings back to their respective home towns. Tradition in China placed great importance and emphasis on the return of the dead to their homes and families, and thus the corpse herders came to be. By using magick words and talismans they would animate the dead, and by placing specially inscribed parchments of paper over the Jiangsi heads and faces, the corpse herders would be able to control the hopping corpses. Then like pied pipers, they would lead processions of subdued undead, across many miles, rhythmically chanting and ringing tiny bells.

Special inns were built across China to house these undead caravans, as the zombies could only travel by evening and night, the sun anathema to them. Rows of doors opening to barely a closet-space, lined the walls of these special establishments. Behind these doors, the corpses would be stored upright while the corpse herders rested in rooms.

The Jiangsi under the control of a corpse herder were quite harmless, merely hopping after him, silently and without complaint, for weeks and months. If however, the magicked parchment would somehow be removed from their faces, the creatures would immediately seek living humans to kill. Their thirst for Qi was unquenchable.

The job of a corpse herder was an interesting one to say the least.
