Interesting. I like the way you've elevated he from being merely a goddess of revelry, to one who actually employs carousing as a way of weakening the fires of strife and hate. A seemingly minor deity of disreputable priests that play a very important role in keeping all-out war from breaking loose. Go to Comment
Wulf, your guess probably strikes closest to the truth. The way I see it, the loa would be so enraged by the devastation that they would send the Ignusho to wreck bloody vengeance on the human inhabitants until the latter finally realised their folly and put an end to all efforts to drain the swamp. The ignusho are much feared, and any mass attacks by them would terrorize most swamp villages into immediate compliance with the will of the loa.
Thanks for the plaudits by the way,guys. They're much appreciated! This creature was actually inspired by the existence of Murometz's Red-Eyed Crow, as well as the other dangerous creatures that were brought to life by the Swamp scroll. Given these numerous menaces, I thought a guardian of the swamps would be appropriate, albeit one that was no less sinister than the other fearsome monsters it is supposed to keep at bay.

He has two bulging orbs protruding from his face. Each one has the ability to rotate freely within it's socket,allowing him to gain unrestricted observation of his suroundings from any angle,much like a chameleon's. Another useful physical attribute is the long and adhesive tongue that usally lies rolled up in his mouth,but is ever ready to shoot out like a rope of sticky fly-paper to trap whatever tasty morsel the mutant feels like dining on Go to Comment
When running a new party, get around the question of plot density by having the first discovery to be a deck of fate, or whatever you call it. If you use a real deck, you should definitely stack it to have the desired outcome, which is to curse the party to attract weird things to happen and involve them. This should not be told to the players at the time, so that they won't just up and try to get themselves 'decursed'. Though quite why they would want to is beyond me.
