Order of the Vigilant/Wakened
Filled with devout followers of many of the major gods/religions united by one task, to squash out the so called Dreamer's Cult wherever it may rest. Using midnight raids and lynch mobs to kill as many cultists s possible they also have a wideranging spy network in order to root out the otherwise hidden cultists.
Just an idea, Ill work on it but only if you say its good AG. Go to Comment
What if someone found it, in some deep wault somewhere, and opened it. And then they ran, when the very walls of the cavern started to talk to him, and the box wouldn't close they were terrified and fled. How much of those tunnels would be infused with those fogs, and after being exposed to them for centuries due to the fear that the locals would develop for what lived there, would the tunnels ever heal or at least regain a semblence of what they once were?

Its a great flower, I wouldn't mind having a couple of these myself. Now on a side note, if some evil genious killed all the rose bushes in the world besides a few that he had in his possesion would it garrentee that those bushes sprouted the Amber Roses or not? Go to Comment
I remember reading this when I was first looking around this site. Beyond that, I wouldn't hunt down those kids for a pretty penny, they've got spunk and'll make dang good adventures when they get older. Go to Comment
"He is very short, only 5'5," but wait, in the middle ages wouldn't that be tall, because of the whole poor nutrietion and all of that?
"black ring chainmail that is almost lightless." In this case, what is lightless, does it not reflect light, or is it really heavy?
"To survive, Azriel joined a thieves guild and learned his trade there." "...for no one liked the Drow and a Drow Assassin surely did make people mad" Now, since he's in human lands apperently, why hasn't he been killd yet? If a lone orc child wandered into a city he would be killed by some wandering adventurer within seconds. You said yourself that noone liked the drow. Go to Comment
It's simple really. He tripped and landed on the drow matrons toes, on his back. So instead of just killing him for trespassing they are torturing him for looking up the High Mother's skirts. Go to Comment
A downside to the not seeing shadows would be that the thief/assassin wouldn't be able to see his own shadow. Now if he doused every light in his way tha wouldn't be so bad, but if he didn't, and he cast a shadow the guards would know he was there and he would have to leave, quickly. Good weapon, good reason to exist.
A floating, bloody head, long separated from its body, is a particular legend among a very particular group of people, executioners, specifically those that chop heads from a block for a living. It was that infamous highway robber, Oazduke the Vengeful, who when finally captured and put to the axe, screamed his foul hex, seconds before his head flew off.
"You will know it is me when I'm through
A curse on your ilk and on you!
May my severed head haunt you eternal
Frightening you headsmen infernal!"
Years later, not one but two(!) weary, puffy-eyed, spooked, headsmen, haunted day and night by Oazduke's insufferable severed head, approach the party cleric in order to hire him to exorcise the ghost head once and for all.
