    Faction Background

    Here is a little bit of information about the Druggoi Covens

    The Dragoul are humanoid creatures that have been afflicted by the Dragoul Curse. This curse ravages the body normally making people mindless killers and ambush predators thirsting for raw flesh to propagate the disease. The affliction makes the creature have ashen skin, a distended jaw and their skin becomes very waxy and sunken leading to a skull like visage, among other deformities.

    A Glutton is a Dragoul that for what ever reason has mutated further than their smaller brethren. These creatures are even more cunning than a Dragoul, almost double the bulk and vicious. A Glutton is always hungry and will eat any creature that comes to hand, Dragoul tend to follow them as where a Glutton is there is bound to be food and a pack of Dragoul with a Glutton is rarely hungry. For the Glutton this is also a good arrangement as if they are unable to find food for any reason, there is always a Dragoul shaped snack nearby.

    Terrors are the creatures that stalk nightmares of The Eightfold Path. A Terror is a creature much larger than a normal humanoid that has contracted the curse, they could have been a bear, Trogkyn or Ogyre but now they are something new. The worse recorded Terror was Nytingenga who was an afflicted Dragon. Not only are Terrors an issue but their calls bring Dragoul as food is never far from them.

    Druggoi on the other hand have retained their mental faculties, even if they arenít as right thinking as they used to be, so they use weapons, magika and armour. A Druggoi can plan an ambush, prepare a trap and talk to you about the great philosophers... if they donít take a bite out of you first.


    We will add more background over the next few weeks.

    Meat! Like a drumstick beating on his mind the thought struck him. Meat! The thought again, Kourusi couldn’t even remember the last time his mind wasn’t invaded by the longing to sink his teeth into a fresh kill. Once there had been a woman and a child, but that was before the change, before the horrific night.

    Coming back to the present he could smell the foetid breath and the unwashed bodies around him, nearby there were many lesser beings, smaller, stupider, barely more than animals. They stood in a clearing in the woods above the little village looking down on it, the inhabitants didn’t know what was coming but Kourusi did, he had done it before and once, so long ago he almost couldn’t remember, he had been been a person in a village like this.

    Looking across the small clearing Kourusi signalled to his pack mate, less powerful than Kourusi, Allear was still impressively equipped in Dorian Plate and wielding a two Dorian Blades. Allear started forward the pack of lesser beings following him toward the village, making their way round to the other side.

    Kourusi gave it a time, enough time that he could hear the back of his mind screaming for the delicious meal coming his way... soon. He made his way toward the village quietly smacking one of the lesser beings with the flat of his sword when the hunger started it whimpering at the closeness of the food.

    A meat beast cry sounded on the other side of the village, Allear must have attacked, the hunger must have gotten too much and shouts sounded throughout the village, a bell started ringing in the night.

    Kourusi and his lesser followers ran into the village, the lesser beings unable to contain their urges started screaming and yelling. The first meat beast to meet them was shaking holding a farming implement in its hand, it went under in a tide of lesser beings screaming as they bit into its flesh, it was almost certain that this one would not join there ranks as crimson blood sprayed into the air.

    Rounding the corner Kourusi found himself in the village centre, standing outside one of the large buildings the meat beasts had gathered, halberds bristling outwards, a larger one wearing plate stood in the centre of their group bellowing at the other beasts around it. Allear and his cohorts hit them from the side like a thunderbolt a tide of yammering lessers breaking over their lines.

    Kourusi couldn’t take it any more he joined the fray, laying around him with his halberd Kourusi started shouting “Meeeaaaa!” as he felt meat beast bones and flesh parting under his weapon. Seeing one of the meat beasts stood at the back on the steps using magika, he focused all of his hunger his rage and its head exploded as the mind shard broke it apart.

    After the fight was over Kourusi was feasting on the dead the warm blood a salty tang on his tongue. Near him a fresh lesser, one of the meat beasts brought down during the night, was eating from a small shape. Kourusi tried to remember the feeling of being a meat beast, a human... but the thought was fleeting.
