Skalfian Vampire


For sinning against the will of their god, the people of Skalfa were cursed to an eternity of insane hunger

Full Description
The Skalfian Vampires were all once human beings, but now lead pathetic existences as etiolated wights, deformed and undying, who shamble and hunt each other in cruel animalistic hunger through the swamps where the ruins of their city jut from the fen like tombstones.

A Skalfian Vampire is scarcely recognizable as a former human, but rather represents some kind of hideous humanoid vulture mummy. The face of each eyeless, shriveled corpse has been twisted and deformed and their jaws warped, now resembling some kind of demonic vulture mask with human skin stretched over it. Their slick, wet, purple-stained flesh is crowned by thousands of mutant quills and deformed, useless feathers. Their nerveless limbs sway and slap as they lurch through the dank morass which is their prison and their home, their snarled ripping jaws hanging loosely and their blackened swollen tongues limply bobbing. Lacking eyes, they find their way through the marsh to prey only through sense of smell.

Boots Of Ennui

       By: Murometz

These magical boots empower the wearer with several abilities at once. Wondrous leaping, water-walking, and even flying! Yet the boots possess an insidious curse upon them as well. A deep and almost unfathomable (by others) feeling of listlessness, boredom, and even apathy affects the boots' wearer at all times whenever they are donned. Magic will not dispel the effects.

And so while the wearer of the boots can perform great feats of action during combat or at other opportune times and key moments, they'll never really want to do so, complaining "Meh, what's the point of it all anyway?" or "I would fly up and save us all guys, but sigh, maybe uhm, soonish, mkay? Bit bored by this whole burning tower at the moment."

Naturally the boots wearer's fellow PCs will grow quickly frustrated with this arrangement. There have been numerous occasions when one angry PC literally tears off the boots from his companion's feet in anger, and dons them in turn, only to immediately suffer from the same effects.

The solution lies in constantly "motivating" the boots' wearer with successful rolls, involving threats, flattery, fiery speeches, or even bribery.
