Ahh, but that's what the slimy buggers do best, distracting simple and pure thoughts of survival and honor, and turning them into something weak and foul which they can use to enslave you.. Beware the lies of the salamander-men,my friend! Go to Comment
Mangrove swamps are prevalent in the Eshal home-world and as we know, these swamps are often capable of supporting large trees like the banyan.
As for the Agerai being everywhere, I did imply that was the case. Like any species of predators there are certain areas where they are especially found of congregating , namely the places where mangrove swamps can be found. Go to Comment
Imagine the sands shifting benath your feet to reveal a pack of starving monsters eager to feast on you. Not a pleasant experience, I imagine,and one that would probably make the natives see rain-falls as a mixed blessing. The more superstitious might even see these cats as some kind of super-natural evil that manipulates the rains to lead their prey into their snare. Go to Comment
He,he.. This idea suddenly bored its insidious way into my brain as I was in the chat with Ria one day. I mentioned it, the ideas flew freely from both of us, and this is the result. Glad you enjoyed it, Muro and Cheka. Go to Comment
The Social Climbers are pretty amusing too. Imagine them bing lured to take on an epic quest with some extravagent promise, only to have an army of assasins pursuing them as the reward for their courage. Kinda takes the fairy-tale ending out,no? Go to Comment
Not an unlikely possibility, but they'd have to do their best to stay clear of their former colleauges. The other hounds that still remain true to their lord, would be rattled enough by the defection to go to great lengths not to dissapoint when it comes to apprehanding the traitor. Go to Comment
''I am confused why they are so easily manipulated, though, is it part of their punishment?''
Indeed, it is. Back in their hey-day, the Lohra were master manipulators dedicated to using their arts of decpetion to consolidate their power in hell. When they were cast out, the Lord Of the Desolate Shore was vicious enough to rob them of their cunning and replace it with an almost child-like fear of the unknown.
Moon-Hunter, those are some good ideas. I think I'll incorporate them. Go to Comment
You're absolutely right, angryscotman. Prior to their fall, the Lokra possessed an unearthly beauty. Much like elves or some of the lovelier fae, they would have somewhat resembled humans, with the only visible signs of their non-human origin being their flawless, mesmerising beauty and eyes that were an unsettling yellow in colour. Apart from those minor differences, the Lohra were once six foot tall humanoid beings with black silken locks and exquisite faces that would have tested the skill of even the most accomplished sculptors to replicate. A look from one of those beings would have easily reduced a human of either sex to a state of naked, hopeless desire. Go to Comment
My only regret is that this was not posted under the NPC scetion. Such a creature is a proper individual, rather than being just a generic life-form.. Ignore my griping. I tend to obssess over silly stuff like this. Go to Comment
Actually a real-world fungus, just heard about it. A fungus that tastes well and all, no ill effects. UNLESS you consume some beverage, even 3 (three) days after eating it. Then you become really sick, pains, vomiting, all the fancy stuff. Was really used to cure alcoholism. May be a joke or to make sure the heroes spend their time focused on the mission.
