The Dark Mother

By:

And in those days Man sought to set himself above the God, and sought out ancient evils to bind them to his cause.  Delving into the deepest abyss they brought forth She from whom all inequities flow, bound in the depths before the beginning of time to suffer for her sins.


She was the companion of the God, and together they crafted Man; however even in those days Her envy was great, and she sought to use their creation against the God, and so for Her sins she was cast into the Abyss.

The Dark Mother raised above Man 13 disciples, and gave unto them the gift of Death Everlasting, and in those days she said unto them, go out into the world and spread the Truth of my return, that Man might fear and the very foundations of Heaven might come loose.

--

Undead goddess motivated solely by her hatred of the god, first she raised up the dead to walk the earth as her slaves, primarily to build her a tower of babel so that she might personally storm the gate of heaven and wreak vengance on the god.

In the beginning of the world she was bound to her tomb deep under the earth, and was wracked eternally by the fires of hell.  until at last she tricked some cabal or another to release her from her prison for some pretty lore or another.  she remained bound for a while longer, with chains of magic, and served mankind as a sort of enslaved tutor.

when she finally broke her chains the sun set on the world for the last time, the dead rose and she began slaying all those who bound her.  with the night came the cold, and the hunger, and in those first days many that had fled originally came and sold themselves or their family to the dark mother, to serve as sources of blood and slaves of her vampiric servants.

ephraim took his disciples underground and founded teh church to fight the dark mother.  ephraim possibly one of the ones who binded her, at least according to apocryphal sources, though to say that is to bring down the wrath of the faithful upon yourself.

       By: Almar

While setting up camp for the night, the PC's are aproached by another group of adventurers who seem nice enough. The road is somewhat dangerous and the other group suggests camping together. The two bands split watches, one adventurer from each group watching at once. The night goes by without incident, the next day the PC's travel with the other group as they are going the same way.

The group consists of Hordel the ranger, who is skilled with the bow. Hordel is a quiet man who speaks little but appears quite skilled. Dremar is a barbarian who is a little excentric, he seems to be an excasive drinker and thiunk that battle is the solution to everything. He appears to be a stout and powerful fighter with his greataxe. Ferrin is the leader of the group, a rouge by trade. He is daft and witty, speaking with the PCs often and asking many questions. He fights with finesse with his rapier. Preminitat as a cleric but he will not say which god he worships. He uses his spells to empower and heal his party and fights with a club. He sticks close to Ferrin. Ferrin is a great talker and tells much of himself and his party, but asks even more about the history and capabilities of the PCs. He tells of some adventures his party has had, and they seem like an interesting group of mercenaries. Hordel is quite and has little interest in speaking with the PCs, he ignores most questions. He spends a lot of time with Dremar and sometimes Ferrin. Dremar seems to not care about any questions ansked to him, nor does he seem to know the answers. He seems battle hardened and is a simple man. Preminitat rarely starts conversations but will speak with the PCs. However, some of his accounts of the party's history seem to condradict those of Ferrin.

The Party spends another night and day with Ferrin's group. One of four things can happen on the third night.
1: While eating dinner around the fire, Ferrin gets into an argument with one of the PCs when he/she mentions the discepincies between Ferrin's stories and Preminitat's.
2: Hordel gets mad after repeated questioning about his life from the PCs.
3. Preminitat gets mad after repeated questioning from the PCs about what god he worships.
4: One of the PCs rejects the offer of a drink from Dremar and he takes it as an insult.
All of these scenarios result in a battle between the parties. If Ferrin's party is defeated and still lives he swears vengance. His party may then cross paths with the adventurers again.
