Sigil Bestiary – Outer God Shard

Scholars of the mystic arts agree on few things, but one agreement is that the aether is the ocean on which all worlds drift like forlorn boats. A radical few suggest that the aether itself is yet another ship set adrift in a much deeper, darker, more frightful ocean. This nether-aether, as they call it, […]

Sigil Emporium – Love’s Arrows

Scholars have often debated whether there is indeed a god of love, or whether we have merely personified and anthropomorphised the concept of love. And if even if there is a god of love, what love is he (or she) a god of? Sexual love? Romantic love? Platonic love? Familial love? All encompassing, unconditional love? […]

Sigil Bestiary – Behemoth

He was created as king of the beasts and lord of all land above the sea and below the heavens. The Behemoth truly makes his name proud as he walks taller than any other creature. Dragons, trolls and giants are dwarfed by his passing, and his length puts even the kraken to shame. In ancient […]

Sigil Emporium – Silver Tongued Pipe

An unassuming silver-coloured three-holed flute, the Silver Tongued Pipe’s only decorative element is a small relief of a bearded man at the mouthpiece. To any casual observer, it would look no different from any other playing pipe. Perhaps it was an heirloom or a gift, but surely nothing nefarious. That is half of the Pipe’s […]

Sigil Emporium – Signet of the Wise King

When a wise king prayed for help in ridding his lands of evil, he was bestowed with a signet ring of iron and brass. This hexagrammical signet gave him divine dominion over all manner of spirits that would infect his lands. Any decree he ordered and sealed with this heavenly ring was a milstone around […]

Sigil Bestiary – Dragon Turtle

A figure of such mythic proportions, that no one is truly sure whether only one Dragon Turtle exists or whether there is a whole species of them. No one who has claimed to kill a Dragon Turtle has ever brought a carcass back to shore to prove it, and no ship has ever spotted more […]

Sigil Emporium – Timeless Spear

There are many men who believe that this is not the only world that exists; that beyond the aether lies a vast ocean filled with worlds to be explored. Yet, there are a few men who believe that there is a near infinite number of worlds that exist right alongside ours, invisible to us but […]

Sigil Bestiary – Harpy

Harpies are chimeric creatures, with the heads and torsos of maidens and the wings legs and tail-feathers of vultures. Legends say that they were made to be servants of the gods, but if that is the case, one can only wonder at what service the gods truly had in mind. This is due to the […]

Sigil Emporium – Animius

Myths say that the first sword in existence was granted a soul by a god and carried with him through the heavens. The constellation still marks the passage of the god and his living sword as they patrol the cosmos, rooting out chaos where they find. Inspired by legend, an ingenious enchanter set out to […]

Sigil Bestiary – Wraith

Wraiths are the souls of those who couldn’t imagine a world without life; a spirit that refuses to accept that it has passed beyond its mortal coil; a ghost of envy and darkness. Much like those spirits with unfinished business, Wraiths cannot pass on to the next phase of existence because of their insurmountable desire […]

Sigil Emporium – The Corrupted Skull

The Corrupted Skull truly looks like it was taken from the body of demonic hellspawn. It has three eye-holes, twisted goat-like horns, teeth reminiscent of a canine predator, and runes and markings have beeb scrimshawed all over it. Simply looking at the Skull leaves one feeling uncomfortable, never mind holding it. However, if the stories […]

Sigil Emporium – Necklace of Discordia

Vanity is a sin, yet humanity has not and seemingly will never learn that lesson. Once, so legend claims, the gods decided to make an example out of a beautiful queen and so teach all her subjects and everyone who would hear her tale of the dangers of pride and vanity. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. […]

Sigil Bestiary – Hobgoblin

Contrary to popular belief, hobgoblins are not demonic creatures set to ruin civilisation, although they are often devilishly tricky. Hobgoblins, or hobs for short, are small gnome-like creatures that are attracted by civilisation like moths to a flame. Once they find a human settlement, they search for just the right house, manor, castle or residence […]

Sigil Emporium – Dripping Ring

Greed is a terrible thing. It can push a man to ambitious heights, but it robs him every step of the way up that mountain. With the accumulation of worldly goods comes the jealousy of hoarding them from others. It is not enough to have; you must make sure others never get it. A greedy […]

Sigil Bestiary – Wolf

More than any other creature (mundane or magical), it is the wolf that is man’s archenemy. It is the wolf that we fear in the dark; the wolf that makes us tread lightly in the wilderness and peer over our shoulders in the deep forests. The wolf represents everything that is cunningly brutal and brutally […]
