The Ashen Wastes


This forsaken world, nestled near the deepest stretches of the Nether Realms, is a bitter place of powdery ash and sun-scorched desert, forever baking beneath the relentless and unchanging fury of a baleful sun’s light.


The Ashen Waste is aptly named; once a lesser Celestial Realm graced by a child of the Lords of Hope, it was seized with violence by a spirit of Summer who had been outcast for her hatred of all living things that dared to defy the furnace wrath of her season, and with her touch it sank through the Realms to settle in the lowest depths of the Nether. Seeking only dominion of undying summer and the death of all things which dwell upon the other seasons, Muras the Ash-Blood has created a hellish place of light, heat, and murderous hate.





-Eternal Furnace: This hellish Nether Realm is a place of relentless heat, light, and hatred; any creature not native to the Realm will slowly be burned away to join the fine ashes that cover the ground, unless protected by potent magic.
-Nether Realm: Selfish energy runs strongly within the Gloom, weakening those of a more altruistic nature and entities from the Celestial Realms, while amplifying the malevolent impulses of those already so inclined.
-Elemental Affinity: A place of relentless heat and light, the Ashen Wastes augment magical effects that rely upon or produce either, while utterly suppressing all but the most powerful magic of darkness or cold.
-Hatred: The Realm is driven as much by the hatred of the ruler as by Her affinity for summer and heat, if not more. This taints everything within the realm, afflicting visitors within minutes. Tempers quickly flare up, small disputes escalate wildly out of proportion, and efforts to calm things down and make peace tend to be interpreted as siding with the opposing side. Even the mighty Lords of Hope from the Celestial Realms are not immune to this taint.

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
