Nerimuvas the Magus Serpent

By:

A great supernatural serpant - Wise yet mercurial


Full Description

The Magus Serpent, a rare magical creature native to the Hanaset forests, appears as a massive hundred-foot long constrictor whose tail splits into three prehensile sub-tails. Her scales are an iridescent green and the eyes a metallic copper.

Additional Information
The Magus Serpent is part of the Hanaset Zodiac, and she is called Nerimuvas by the Hanaset.  Easily more intelligent then humans, she is viewed as an incarnation of wisdom and reflection, as well as the patron of aging and rebirth.  Although wise, she is still perilous to deal with, and her anger at offense is legendary.  The serpent will speak with beings who show sufficient deference, and offerings of live prey such as Ralu will raise the probability of a peaceful encounter. The serpent will provide advice to beings who ask it of her, but it is not advised to question accuracy or clarity for risk of causing offense.  While the advise might seem difficult to follow, it is generally wise and accurate.

She lairs in dark caverns near water - she is an excellent swimmer and preys upon crocodiles from time to time. She avoids Malitazum one-eyed, patron and totem of the Hanaset-who-are-not-Hanaset, as he greatly exceeds her own power.

When she sheds her skin, something which generally happens yearly, some of her power remains in the discarded skin. The Hanaset treat these skins as one of their greatest treasures and it is used to bind their holy books.  Many a Hanaset warrior has spent years seeking out these relics.

She is strong in magic but never aids others with it.

Rural Mystery

       By: Murometz

The PCs are making their way from village to village across a rural hinterland, when they spot a weird sign along a farmstead's fence, with an arrow pointing to the actual farmstead.

"CRAZY DANCING HOES!!"

If they investigate, a rather sedate local farmer, explains to them that for a mere two coppers, they can witness the show for themselves.

The show involves six ordinary, animated hoes "dancing" on a makeshift stage, as the farmer accompanies them by slapping his thighs to keep the beat, and playing on his flute.

If asked how the trick is accomplished the farmer demurs, not wanting to share his "secret".

"If you can get Old Man Purkiss to tell you how he gets his cows to spout poetry, I'll tell you how I make my hoes dance."

In reality, this minor encounter can lead to the PCs discovering that some localized, magical effect is active in the area. All kinds weird phenomena seem to occur in these parts.

Perhaps the PCs have finally found the ley-line of mana energy that they have been searching for! The party's wizard gets excited.
