Skalfian Vampire

By:

For sinning against the will of their god, the people of Skalfa were cursed to an eternity of insane hunger

Full Description
The Skalfian Vampires were all once human beings, but now lead pathetic existences as etiolated wights, deformed and undying, who shamble and hunt each other in cruel animalistic hunger through the swamps where the ruins of their city jut from the fen like tombstones.

A Skalfian Vampire is scarcely recognizable as a former human, but rather represents some kind of hideous humanoid vulture mummy. The face of each eyeless, shriveled corpse has been twisted and deformed and their jaws warped, now resembling some kind of demonic vulture mask with human skin stretched over it. Their slick, wet, purple-stained flesh is crowned by thousands of mutant quills and deformed, useless feathers. Their nerveless limbs sway and slap as they lurch through the dank morass which is their prison and their home, their snarled ripping jaws hanging loosely and their blackened swollen tongues limply bobbing. Lacking eyes, they find their way through the marsh to prey only through sense of smell.

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
