Slash

By:

A Group of Mercenaries that is almost completely composed of lizard folk

 

Back in the days, when the federation was first gaining power, an infection broke out. It affected all life and killed the host life form within days.  Though it affected all creatures, it only spread through lizardfolk. Soon people became fearful of the reptilian humanoids and they were forbidden from most things. They were kept in quarantine camps, and where not allowed to work or live near any other race. After a few years a cure was found and the lizard folk thought life would return to normal, but that was not to be.

The fear remained. They still could not find jobs; even factories would hire weaker people as long as they were not lizard folk. But then a lizardfolk by the name of Urn’cala, realized something. In his home town of Valoc he noticed that the robbery and bandit raids were happening all the time, and the federation, which was off fighting wars in other lands, was unwilling and unable to do anything about it. So he decided to start the group which he called Slash, for he was keen with a saber.

If hard times were the mother of Slash, then union of the lizard folk was the father. For it seemed as though every lizard folk in the surrounding areas flocked to this group, each one needing a job and money. The people of the town where amazed at the mass of lizardfolk in the tavern where Slash held its meetings. They were soon kicked out of the tavern. Luckily a local holy man who owned the church building allowed them to stay at the church until they had a proper building to dwell in.

The timing was perfect. For a local bandit gang started raiding outposts a day later, Slash was given the job to scatter this gang to the four winds. So then out of the church building, poured hundreds of lizard folk some with weapons, some with only their claws and thick skin on their back. They marched on, to prove to the people, that they were worth their weight in gold.

So began working of slash to put lizardfolk back onto the social ladder.

Well, its all history and nothing really specific about the group.

I think you need to add something for their organization, tactics and other details to make them interesting.

Promising, but I'll hold off on voting as this seems unfinished.

The Door

A nifty little encounter appropriate for any powerful sorcerer/magically adept monsters lair.

When the party have penetrated to an appropriatly impressive level/room they encounter The Door, this door is a vessel through which the Sorcerer/Monster can safely work against any intruders, the door is heavy duty iron bound studded oak wrought with craft skill and magic, set in the middle is a crystal orb, once the party get within a preset distance the orb flickers briefly as the door warns its "master" of the intruders, the master can then effectivly possess the door itself, this means that all movement the door is capable of (i.e. opening and closing) come under the control of the master, the master can also cast spells from the door as if he were there himself, all the while any damage that is inflicted in return merely damages the door, this will in effect ruin any of the parties chances of surprise, allow the master to assess the parties abilities while remaining safe and sound and finally will probably cause the party to waste some of their juicier items/spells on a chunk of wood and iron, and if the master happens to have a deadly spell or three it could also reduce the size of the party,

Of course if you wanted to be really nasty you could have the door open to admit one person and then slam shut on the second person (squish) whilst blasting away with every spell in the mastrs repetoir
