Tager

By:

A extra-dimensional symbiote

Tagers

"These…'things' may fight for us, but only due to the little shred of humanity that still makes them scarcely sane…"

Tagers are the warriors and leaders of the Eldrich Society. They bond with alien symbionts that produce alien-like suits of flesh over their bodies, giving them enhanced strength and other abilities. They, and the Society, combat the powerful and terrible cult known as the Children of Chaos who seek the return of the Old Ones. Tagers are named for the Ta'ge symbionts they bond with.

The Rite of Sacred Union

Tager are "born" through the Rite of Sacred Union, the process which fuses a mortal and a Ta'ge symbiont into one creature. Exactly where these symbionts come from is unknown, as is whether they exist somewhere in physical space and are transported across that distance, or if they come from another layer of reality. It is known that the symbiont will destroy any "unsuitable" mortal which attempts to bond with it.

You know, growing a new suit of flesh is both brilliant and icky.  I'd like to know a little more about the bonding process and about the end result, eventually.

It's been lifted from the Guyver series, so that is a good point of reference, and I would say Venom is as well. The Bonding process is done by a mystic rite, and there is a 60% chance of failure. If you fail, the potential symbiont simply eats you. The end result is a human who can call a super suit into existence as a free action, gains boosts to all physical attributes, looses the ability to use mystic and parapsychic powers (cosmic horrors, even benign ones need to eat and are sustained by the orgone of the human host) as well as a bag of nasty powers ranging from flight, to invisibility, to something called a tentacle sheath. I'll let your imagination play with that.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
