Skalfian Vampire

By:

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.

Great Magic and Ruination

       By: rickster

With a huge number of sacrificial victims, another realm long ago secretly bound a Prince of the land spirits, Iorstonn by name, thus ensuring the fertility, and improving the magical defences, of their realm. But binding that Prince to one spot has disrupted the weather and magical patterns (ley lines?) over half the continent. Things have become bad enough that a coalition has been formed to rectify the situation, once divinations have established the cause.

Your party is one of the teams assembled to do the rectification: find the binding object and steal it ("so that we can destroy it here in our realm, of course"...*) or destroy it over there. Presumably the Prince will be grateful to his rescuers and angry at the binders, but with a greater spirit like Iorstonn one can never be sure: such beings are "tricksy".

* Of course, the rulers of our realm might want to control Iorstonn for their own ends...
