Blight Elves: Architects of Despair

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Life is a meaningless torture only made bearable when enjoying the misery of others. If you are too blind or weak to accept this… Dear brother… My king… We will use your own suffering to prove it.
– Salena Valanas

RDP is pleased to announce Blight Elves: Architects of Despair, a supplement for the Blood Throne campaign setting by Hal Maclean!

Blight Elves: Architects of Despair offers Narrators and players a definitive look at the cruelest race to walk to lands of Simarra. Worshipping a goddess who has taken suicide as her own personal portfolio, the blight elves seek not to conquer the world, or even wantonly destroy it, but rather to drive every mortal soul to choose death over life. They consider the spread of misery for misery’s sake their paramount mission, and regard torture, both physical and psychological, as the highest of all art forms.

Inside this 56 page E-book you will find new powers, feats, heroic paths and path masteries, new poisons, diseases, weapons and much more! Blight Elves: Architects of Despair also introduces new villainous paths which allow you take your True20 campaign in new, dark directions. So grab your copy today and delve into the mysteries of these vile creatures!

Grab your copy today at Paizo, RPG Now, and Your Games Now!

Editor Rone Barton and brand manager Ed Healy (that be me) recently had a chat with Sam Chupp of The Bear’s Grove podcast regarding Blight Elves: Architects of Despair. Have a listen: Episode #38.

Here’s a little taste of Blight Elves: Architects of Despair, the upcoming release from RDP.

Agony Altars
Hundreds of these tables wrought from volcanic glass, dark but veined with lines of purple and green, lie scattered within the Palace of Pain. Appearing no different than any other sacrificial altar complete with rusted iron manacles and stains of dried blood, their magical properties transform them into obscenities of a much higher order. Any living creature bound to one of these altars loses the ability to die. No matter how great or extreme the injury, the magic of these altars traps a spark of life within the body. Unfortunately, for those so bound, the altars do nothing to heal any injuries they might sustain, nor do they cushion them from the pain. Not even old age or starvation frees someone from the grip of an agony altar. So long as they lie helplessly bound to its surface they must endure any torment visited upon them.

Web Exclusive from Kobold Quarterly
The D&D Monster Manual states that the organisation of liches is solitary or a troupe (assisted by vampires). But what happens if love truly conquers all? Could two evil spellcasters decide that life without each other is simply impossible?

Here are two scenarios between entangled lovers in the mortal world, Kith and his lover Leptonia. Both are accomplished spellcasters who wish for the immortality of lichdom. Kith has already attained his undeath, and his lover wishes only one act to precede joining him – their marriage. Shortly thereafter, Leptonia becomes a willing participant in the ceremony to become a lich.

This lich’s tale expands on the material of the “Ecology of the Lich,” written by Richard Pett, and published in Kobold Quarterly #3.

Monsters of NeoExodus: Harvester of Sorrow
A gentle keen is the first sound you hear as this plaintive creature steps from the shadows and slides towards you. Exuding melancholy from its expressively sorrowful eyes, its call causes your heart to wrench with ageless pain. Dressed in the tattered remains of clothing from its past life, the rags cling to the rot twisted flesh on its deteriorating frame. Your nostrils are assailed by an earthy scent that hints of the recently left grave. The jagged remains of self inflicted wounds trace their way up the arms of the creature; the pinched noose still hangs from its neck; all the while it looks longingly into your eyes willing you to join it in relentless misery. A harvester of sorrow lurks near suffering and misery waiting for an opportunity to inculcate the living with its pain wracked song of madness and hate. Harvesters are created when the souls of suicide victims are refused entry into the after life, cast back to the world and forced to walk the world in their old bodies for ever feeling the pain that drove them to such desperation. Individual harvesters bear the wounds of their suicide – be they long jagged cuts along the arms, the remains of strangulation ropes on the neck, the shattered bones of long falls or the bloat and stained skin of those that succumbed to poison.

I’m not done yet. Check out this press release from Devil’s Worshop

Louis Porter Jr. Design, in association with Devil’s Workshop, is proud to announce that Greg Oppedisano, RPG writer who has worked for such game companies as Paizo, Goodman Games and 0one Games; has just been hired as the Line Editor on Devil’s Workshop upcoming new project.

“While working with Greg on Monsters of NeoExodus: Harvester of Sorrow, I pitched him an idea that I wanted to do with this project. Greg loved it, took off and ran with the whole project. I think when we announce this secret project a lot of people will be amazed and astonished that we are doing something like this,” commented Louis Porter Jr., owner of Louis Porter Jr. Design. “When this project is released, I believe it will draw a lot of new interest to Devil’s Workshop and Louis Porter Jr. Design.”
