Tongue-Binding Arts

By:

A rare and localized school of contagion magic. An offshoot of Entwining.

The Binding of Tongues is old witch magic, which evolved from that most ancient caste of practitioners known throughout history as the School of Entwiners

The witches of Karaam-Sava were, and some say still are, most known for brandishing this form of arcana.

Thousands of years ago, tongue-binding magic was used by the witches to thwart the pygmy armies of the Gwa and their vile Spell-Throats.

Centuries later, during the Ebn-Nodd Imperium (the empire of the Sons of Nodd), these same witches, or more accurately, their descendants and apt pupils, used tongue-binding magic in battling back the relentless assaults of the magicians of Uo, who came from their hilly, eastern lands, riding their malevolent winged, devil-goats, in brazen attempts to assassinate the Potentates and Imperators of Karaam-Sava, in retaliation for the years of rapine and pillage the people of Uo had suffered and endured, during Ebn-Nodds empirical expansion.

In essence, Tongue-Binding involved the silencing of spell casters via the laws of Contagion Magic

I'm looking for someone to either help me with this (just add scrolls!), or to just tell me that this is not worth doing as an entire article :)

Still trying to get my head around this one, though the 'vile Spell Throats' sounds cool.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
