Sigil bestiary – Faceless One

No one knows who the Faceless One is; not even the Faceless One. What makes him who he is also unmakes him. The Faceless One is a doppelganger, transforming his shape and appearance to match others, but this transformation is so effective that he takes on the memories and personality of his target. Not even the target’s family would be able to tell the two apart; and soon enough not even the Faceless One would. The longer he stays transformed, the more of his memories and personality prior to the transformation becomes lost to time. If he stays too long, he will truly become who he looks like. The only problem

Sigil Emporium – Ring of Ahriman

They say that there is an element of the Great Destroyer in all of us, and that we can feel his touch on our souls whenever we commit an act of destruction; whether it be a simple lie, a cutting remark, clearing of weeds, to the more heinous sins of assault and murder.

Conventional wisdom is to avoid Kraken infested waters whenever possible, and to turn tail and run when one is spotted on the horizon. However, should you be the daring kind, Krakens can be hunted as their meat, teeth and organs are valuable to the

Sigil Emporium – Masque of the Morningstar

The Morningstar is many things to many people; a star in the night sky, a planet in the cosmos, a light to guide us, a mythological figure, or the great enemy of man. Whatever it might be, a sliver of the Morningstar found its way into a carnival masque and has been causing mischief and mayhem ever since. When someone puts on the Masque, it melds with the person’s face, becoming entirely unnoticeable. While wearing the Masque, the person becomes a charismatic virtuoso, able to sway anyone to his point of view, turning heads with his silver tongue. But none of this is the victim’s doing. It is the Masque itself

Sigil Bestiary – Gargoyle

Built as sentinels and watchers, Gargoyles are the immortal and immovable guardians of their sanctuaries. Built of solid stone and given life by a magus or holy man, the Gargoyle is a grotesque imitation of both man and beast. They have the spark of intelligence like a man, but the impulses and aggression of a beast. They are the thus the perfect guard dogs, ever patient, ever ready, ever watchful. Some, however, are separated from the castle, church or temple that they were carved onto. Often by intention as they are carried off from a ruin, or by accident if they become lost chasing their quarry. These forsaken Gargoyles are never
