Heroes Overview

Dark Seer

dark seerFast when he needs to be, and an astute strategist, Ish’Kafel the Dark Seer involves no edged weapons to conquer his enemies, relying in its place on the strength of his commanding mind. His gift lies in his ability to manoeuvre the battle to his advantage. Descendant from a place he calls ‘The Land behind the wall,’ Dark Seer continues as an outsider here-a warrior from a dominion beyond the veil of this reality. [Read more…]


lionOnce a Grandmaster of the Demon Witch folklore of sorcery, Lion earned fame among his brethren for fighting on the side of light and righteousness. Nevertheless, hero worship corrupts. With influences surpassed only by his ambition, the mage was seduced by a demon and turned to evil, abandoning his soul for prestige. After committing atrocious crimes that marred his soul, he was discarded. [Read more…]


warlockAs Chief Curator and Head of Acquisitions for the Arcane Archives of the Ultimyr Academy, Demnok Lannik was unstinting in his quest of lost, rare, and prohibited tomes. No blighted temple was so ominous, no cavern path so treacherous, that any anxiety for his own continued existence could discourage him from entering if rumours mentioned that [Read more…]


lichIn life, the frost-mage Ethreain (not yet a Lich) had used the menace of destructive ice to enchain whole kingdoms. His subjects, supported by a small number of distracted magicians, eventually grew brave enough to trap him. Armed with a sufficient amount of charmed rope to fasten him forever, they tied the frost mage to unyielding weights and plunged him in a bottomless pool. It was not. [Read more…]

Witch Doctor

witch doctorWiry outline glitches forward–rough of feature and limb, strange of gait, unrelentingly criss-crossing the combat zone in search of that crucial fragile point where his talents can do most good, and most harm.

A long staff strikes the earth as Zharvakko the Witch Doctor moves forward, [Read more…]


baneWhen the gods have nightmares, Bane Elemental brings them. Also known as, Atropos, Bane was born from the midnight terrors of the goddess Nyctasha.

Mortals who [Read more…]

Queen of Pain

queenofpainThe Ecclesiast-King of Elze nurtured a desire for pain–illicit pain. In a less well-known political figure, such aspirations might be considered unwise, but in a ruler of his stature, to satisfy such desires would have endangered the virtue of the Divine Throne itself. Therefore, he turned to his dungeon full of demonologists, promising liberty to whoever could beckon a personal succubus of suffering and [Read more…]


venomancerIn the Acid Jungles of Jidi Isle, venom runs in the veins and gurgles in the guts of every living thing that scurries climbs or swoops between luminous vines oozing with acid sap. Yet even in this toxic menagerie, Venomancer is recognized as the most venomous. Ages ago, an Herbalist named Lesale crossed the Bay of Fradj by coracle, exploring for potent essences that might be extracted from bark and [Read more…]

Phantom Assassin

phantom assassinThrough a practice of foretelling, the Sisters of the Veil, an order that considers murder a sanctified part of the natural order, select children for upbringing. The Veiled Sisters recognize targets through meditation and oracular expressions. They accept no treaties, and never seem to hunt targets for political or mercenary motives. Their killings bear no relation to any identifiable agenda, and [Read more…]


medusaBeauty is power. This contemplation reassured Medusa–the youngest and loveliest of three fine-looking Gorgon sisters, born to a sea goddess–because she and no one else of the sisters were mortal. It consoled her, that is, until the day masked attackers invaded the Gorgon dominion and hauled the two immortal sisters from their home, indifferent to [Read more…]
