[World Anvil] – Grandfather, the Sentient Castle

“Despite the many years I have been in this world, the horrors I have seen, I have also seen beauty and compassion. For every so-called evil doer I have known someone who’s light shines brighter than than the sun.”
– Grandfather

 Many decades, if not centuries ago, in Corlak, land of the sentient items , the event known as the Spell Cascade was brought to an end by the sacrifice of the people there. When their souls were ripped from their bodies, which had been disintegrated by the effect of negating the Cascade, they found they were drawn to items and objects that were important to them. Book, swords, tools, and in some cases…buildings. 

The entity now calling itself Grandfather was one such person...

[World Anvil] –

Deklan – Death and Endings

“You mortals think that death and things ending are bad or evil. So many of you fail to see that the death of one thing can allow many others to flourish and begin…” 

Avatar of Deklan addressing his followers

 Pronunciation: – Deck-lahn 

Introduction

Death as a concept is one that is, if not worshipped, then respected in many cultures. Without death, the cycle of life could not progress properly and everything must come to end in some fashion. Deklan is the deity of this concept made manifest. Deklan is a deity that has no known true image, always presented as a cloaked figure that only reveals their face and nature to the one they are escorting to the afterlife...

[World Anvil] – The Spell Cascade

Spell Cascade

“Like a wave of purple fire, it spread across the landscape, changing, altering the very fabric of that with which it came into contact with. Trees were left twisted, animals mutated…I can still hear the screams of the people as it turned its chaotic energies on them…” 

    • Canticle of the Cascade

[World Anvil] – Tembius – Time & travel/movement

Tembius – Time & travel/movement

“Watch your words foolish one. You know who I am and what I am capable of. Through the power of my God I can not only kill you, but make it so you never existed and every last particle of you would be aware as He unmade your very essence…” 

– High Cleric of Tembius – Battle of Stondar, Legends of Before the Barrier

  Pronunciation : Tem-be-us 

Introduction

 Like many others, Tembius had another name in their mortal life. Tembius in Terrex means “Explorer” and lends some weight to the stories that that particular Great-House was his home. The god of time, travel, movement and to a lesser degree exploration. When starting on a long journey, it is a common practice to give an offering or to seek his blessing through a quick prayer.

[World Anvil] – Forge of the Supreme Weapon (repost)

Forge of the Supreme Weapon

Each time she swung her hammer against the metal I swear the sparks would change colour. One moment they are bright red, the next an amazing green, then a sky-blue. I was later told this was the reaction of her hammer and the anvil, moulding the power provided by the flames of the forge itself. Each spark was a manifestation of the Holy Blacksmith into the material plane. Each blow of the hammer was a prayer, each folding of metal an offering. If the smith was worthy and said the right words, Her spirit would become imbued into the weapon or armour, improving the quality of even the most humble of pieces.

 The Forge of the Supreme Weapon (FSW) is an unusual item in that it is used to make other items...
