The Shievren

By:

Then all of a sudden, the victim gets convulsions and seizures, eyes bulging and mouth foaming.

Within the southern empire, there is a rumour. Those rumours tell of mysterious deaths, the corpses bloated and bruised. Witnesses to these deaths tell of unsuspecting victims engaged in normal, everyday activities. Then all of a sudden, the victim gets convulsions and seizures, eyes bulging and mouth foaming. Strangely only the wealthy and powerful ever gets this rare disease.

These deaths are the workings of the Shievren, a witches coven based in the coniferous forest known as the Nebelwald. The witches are approached through the intermediary agent “Grey Dog” in the city of Ur-Kanesh. The witches always require something from the victim, hair, blood and the like. The sages of Yinos believe that these are sewn into their strange puppets and boiled in small ceramic pots they call the Foetherii.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
