Light through saltYpisara was a minor goddess with an odd portfolio, the association with fishes was possibly inherited and the least portion of her worship.  The center of her believers were the serpentfolk who mined the salt of the Bitter Hills and hunted among the mangrove swamps of the Darksea Marsh. Not a numerous people but dedicated to their mother-goddess.

When the dragons went to war with the gods, Ypisara was one of the few who saw how the battles were going to play out, she found and submitted to the Empress, asking only that her children and followers be spared.  The Empress agreed and took the life of Ypisara personally, placing the lands and people of Ypisara under her personal protection and rule.

New Monster – Phantom Warrior

27 March, 2014

Betrayed!  I will be back!Phantom Warrior (CR +1)

The phantom warrior is an echo of a warrior’s spirit who left behind an unfinished task in life, they exist only to called back by strong emotion or magic to attempt to complete that last task in some fashion.

A phantom warrior rarely has an independent existence, they are usually tied to and item of event and are summoned by some trigger to appear in an attempt to complete their unfinished task. Their perception of their status as a spiritual echo is faint and they tend to perceive the world as it had been with the completion of the one task their overriding goal which can make interacting with them difficult.

A phantom warrior looks as a faded version of how they last appeared in life, and when incorporeal light will pass through them, complete with echoes of the equipment they were carrying.

New Monster – Lunar Crow (A to Z Challenge L)

13 April, 2013

Watching for his MistressHambbon could not shake the feeling that they crows were plotting something against him as he explored the ruined temple.  Every time  he turned around, one was watching him with those black eyes.

But the ancient temples to the moon goddess had not been looted, at least, he did not think so.

When he hit the tripwire and tumbled into the pit, he was certain they were laughing at him.

Crow, Lunar

These magical creatures were created as servants of the moon as used as her messengers, in direct moonlight their sooty black plumage turns into a beautiful silver-white.  Since the moon’s exile, they have become more feral and vicious, action on the mad schemes of their mistress.

Lunar crows often serve as familiars to those who are moon cultists or may be useful to the moon’s cause.

New Monster – Color Cat (A to Z Challenge C)

3 April, 2013

I don't like your fashion choices either . . .As if a purple cat was not odd enough, it was a talking purple cat . . .

Cat, Color

These magical creatures were pets of one of the artist gods who loved color and cats and so inevitably combined the two.  Color cats are house cat sized but their fur is always a bright shade of a single color of the spectrum.  They are intelligent and can talk, indeed they are often very opinionated especially in sartorial matters.

Color cats often serve as familiars to those who are kind to them.

Color Cat     CR 1/2 (XP 200)
