For Danny this is what is race his looks like !
A Black smoke escapes from Eando Klines, he is enveloped by it and then he is gone……
Bris turns and see`s it , a huge shambling mound of mouths , tentacles and limbs , constantly changing A shoggoth’s form is constantly shifting, as the creature moves, explores, and interacts with its environment. Extremely adaptable, its current form is always the one that is most
ideally suited to finding and consuming living flesh. At any one time, a shoggoth has dozens of pseudopods of varying proportions, and it uses them to create hands, suckers, stingers, or tentacles to grab and consume its prey. Its skin glows with a very faint emerald luminescence. Its black tarry flesh is sometimes translucent as well, especially when it has not eaten in a long time. It is capable of secreting a thick, viscous, semi opaque, sticky slime that further enhances its ability to catch and devour its prey. Shoggoth’s have no proper mouth but createand absorb such organs as needed..Shoggoth’s are creatures fuelled by chaos, servitors of dark gods and things normally spoken of only in whispers. At one time, shoggoth’s were servants to a greater race, but after centuries or eons of mistreatment they rebelled and cast down their masters. They are near-mindless predators, always hungry, though legends say they possess a cunning beyond that of most oozes.
Corik`s first reaction is to run , but while he does, he spy`s a small dwarven figure making its way up through ramp at Foxglove manor, turning once more the priestess and the spider of leng have disappeared behind a blanket of sleet. An epic encounter that shall go down in the histories of Golarion as the mighty inquisitor Bris and the battle bard Durgen fought an epic struggle, Durgen looks into to death and silently mouths a pray to Saranrae , she must have heard as every deadly attack misses bar one and that was minor. Then the deadly inquisitor joins him, “you know have I never trusted you Foxglove he spits , “but lets send this bastard back to void it came from” , with a grim nod , Durgen attacks with a deadly ferocity , which is matched by the inquisitor! The fight was a sight to behold , stabs and punctures , as blades wove in unison as the mighty creature began to dissipate back to the void , where it came!
“You are both blessed ” says Corik ” I have never seen such a fight !!”
Pausing he continues ” I Saw a dwarf enter the manor ?”
Exhausted and tired , Bris can only point towards the manor !”lets move”
Our heroes are now very tired , exhaustion taking over as they trudge towards the evil manor , they see the black blood splats as Corik tells them what he saw! Bris seems concerned , Durgen seems unsure of entering !
A dark mood takes over Durgen as they enter the vile mansion , walking up the ice ramp , they enter the room once the home of aldern foxglove the air in this damp cavern reeks of a horrific stench-a foul combination of decay, brine, and mold. The cave contains a rickety table, its damp surface cluttered with all manner of what appears to be garbage: empty bottles, bits of clothing, crumpled bits of paper, and more, lying in neatly organized rows. A painting leans against the far side of the table, facing a large leather chair that sits nearby. This chair’s high back and cushion are horribly stained by smears of rotten meat and its arms are sticky with blood. A smaller table sits against the southern wall, its surface heaped with plates and platters of rotten, maggot-infested meat. The horrific stench of the room seems strongest to the west, where the cave’s wall has been overtaken by a
horrific growth of dark green mold and dripping fungi. At the center, a patch of black tumescent fungus grows, its horny ridges and tumorlike bulbs forming what could almost be taen to be a humanoid outline. What appears to have once been an exquisite puzzle box the size of a man’s fist lies smashed on the ground at the fungoid shape’s feet, as they set up camp for the night , Corik summons cold porridge and water , whilst eating , Bris hurls the waters of lamshtu into the green fungus and then it happens , from the black fungus appears man in full black plate armour , his head is a skull with glowing red eyes , on his back is a huge great sword , he looks in Durgens eyes and whispers barely audible “Thank you Grandson….”
Durgen is over powered by the whole situation and collapses!
“Did the battle fortress take place?.” He muses
Suddenly looking Bris see`s the bloodied body of a duergar, the duergar looks up !
“Help me Bris ? ” he pleads
Bris is shaken ” Kolbi ” he says “You Fukin traitor!”
“Wait Bris please ?” shouts Kolbi “We were as brothers once , please I had to do it. I have a message from the one you call Ironbriar!”
Bris Raises his weapon …..
“Wait ” shouts Corik ” Hear him out ! by Saranrae`s will ”
“Thank you Corik , Ironbriar will arrange a meeting , things move to quickly ”
“I don’t do it for you Kolbi ” says Corik coldly “I do it not to taint Bris soul !”
Bris Nods , he looks torn , “we drank , we fought side by side ” he looks at Kolbi “Why ?”
” I had to Bris , what happens is bigger than any of us , what I did , was for Golarion , this Tree cult , these insects, this fungus , these rune wells !!”
“We will meet with Iron Briar ” says Corik, “take some gruel and go ”
“Thank you Corik , I will be in touch very soon !”
Durgen has terrible dreams and wakes up in a blackened mood , he leaves camp early and says nothing to the others, he makes his way to sandpoint. Bris and Corik Follow and they see Durgen on the path ahead.
A farmer and his son are also the road , in a wagon ahead!
“What is up with Durgen ? ” asks Corik “he is shrouded in darkness , Saranrae Tells me !”
“Hmmm it has something to do with what passed between the lich and him “!
Suddenly Corik casts a spells to unmask the enchantments around him ….. but as he does he feels a kiss on his cheek !!!
Before them all sits Rizzen Ironbriar and Kolbi Dark iron on the wagon !!!
Bris goes for his sword before he can think ! , “Stay your hand ” whispers Corik
Rizzen stands and raises his hands in peace!
“We must Talk he says “………………………………………………
