Sigil Emporium – Djinni’s Lamp

Djinn are powerful aetherial creatures with the power of smoke and fire. While they make their homes in the deserts and wastelands outside civilisation’s reach, they often intrude onto our lands to wreak havoc and conquer mortal realms. Many don’t make it back to their wasteland sanctuaries, and those few that are not killed in spectacular displays of arcane might, are trapped into containers by powerful magi to become slaves of the men they so recently terrorised. The magi’s enchantments are not permanent, and the lamps the Djinn are sealed in are not their eternal prisons. The magi believed in rehabilitation and allowed the Djinn to work off their debt to

Sigil Bestiary – The World Ender

The Children of Merovech called it the Tarrasque; the rest of the world called it the eater of cities and the ender of worlds. This gigantic scourge of God has been called half dragon, half animal, and half fish. It has the head of a lion with teeth as long and sharp as swords, the mane of a horse, a back covered in a tortoise-like shell with sharp bristly scales keen as daggers, six feet with bear-like claws, and the tail of a serpent with a scorpion’s sting. Worst still is that it can breathe poisonous fumes and sulfurous flames, and can emit a piercing hiss that deafens all who hear

Named after both where it was found and what it is made of, the Cauldron of Chalcedon is a dark spectre in this world. Made of red and black onyx chalcedony, the meter-high cauldron looks as if there is an ever-swirling vortex of blood on its surface. This macabre pattern is as beautifully ominous as it is a reflection of the Cauldron’s purpose. The Cauldron mad creator built it for the sole purpose of creating an unthinking, unfeeling demonic army. Feed it a living creature, and it will, in turn, provide an undead demon to serve you devoutly until it is destroyed. It is a blight on this realm, taking what

Sigil Bestiary – Demigod

Born to be kings and princes of the universe, Demigods are well and truly better than other men. They carry within them the spark of divinity, and are technically only half-mortal as one of their parents is a god, spirit or other aetheric entity. Whatever their divine heritage, they were born faster, stronger, more charismatic and more intelligent than mere mortals and live a life of prophecy and providence. It is not just feasts, glory and concubines for Demigods, however. Fate has other plans. Their divine spark draws calamity to them like moths to a flame. Wherever they go, they find insurmountable challenges to overcome, unstoppable beasts to put down, and
