“The Orstaur beasts are unleashed My Lord Legatus!”

“Quiet your tongue, I am no Lord Master. I am a tool and that is all. Send the other troops to the east of the Orstaur. I don’t want them turning on us when they run low on food. Pray to the Weapon that Kills that this day will be bloody. Sing the song of your God and may they get you through today!”

- Legatus Suuhai - Commander of the Minotaur Armies of the Blades

Race : Orstaur
Appearance : They have the lower body of a male Keirn and the upper torso of a large grizzly bear.
Height : 12’ tall
Weight : 500 lbs

Description :
The Orstaur are a freakish creature to witness. They stand 12’ tall and tower over most of the other Fel’Krethsh. They have the lower body of a well muscled Keirn male, with strong legs and chiseled muscles. Their upper body is what gives them their frightful appearance. Their upper body is that of a huge brown grizzly bear. Arms, shoulders, and head are all covered in thick oily fur. Their small black eyes show feral intelligence that only their masters can quell. They paws are larger than most mortals heads and can crush small stones with a single swat.

Distinguishing Traits :
Their main traits are they are nothing more than a shock troop. They have no fear, no morals, and do not question their masters. They are told to kill and they do so willingly and as swift and brutal as possible. Their huge size belies their speed and agility. They are fast and swift, able to run down a fast running horse with ease. Their strength is unmatched as they have been known to tear a horse in two with a single slap of their claws.

Personality :
They are a penned dog no more. They are kept in tight quarters to keep their edge about them and fed the meat of those fallen on the field. They are never given live meat as it rips them into a near uncontrollable frenzy when confined. They get all the feeding they could desire when in battle. Which even when they are not on the battlefield, their masters pit them against each other for sport and to cull their rage.

They are kept in pens of ten to twenty, but on the battle field they are unleashed in a horde of a hundred strong or more. A swath of muscled rage bent on destroying everything in their path and eating what gets within range of their maw.

Relations :
They have no contact with anyone outside of their breed unless they are on the field of battle. They are kept in their close confine for their safety and that of the other demons foolish enough to take a half breed for granted. They are given a wide berth and usually sent into battle first as a shock troop to weaken the resolve of their enemies. When fighting other demon armies; watching the display of two hordes of Orstaur battling is usually enough to settle a dispute between two generals, for a day at least.

Religion :
They have no religion other than the rage. They have no real speech and therefore are unable to actually pray. However they have some sort of respect for those of great battle prowess so it seems while they are not intelligent they are aware of what happens around them and are respectful to their masters.

These are just monsters. They are interseting monsters, but not upto the par of the rest of the Taur.

Again a link to the Hewdamia Keirn would be nice. I am sure others will think to do the search, since everything in Hewdamia is getting put up. However, a click link will make others happier.

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
