Sigil Bestiary – Naga

Some say that Nagas are the result of ancient elves corrupted by fel energies and their own dark temperaments until their outward appearance mirrored their inner rot. Others say that they are the creation of some malicious god or mad alchemist, set loose on the world to wreak havoc. No one entirely agrees on the details of their origins, but all are in agreement that they are not natural. Even the Nagas’ own lore and oral history paint them as being invaders and colonisers to the land, nor born from it. Nagas are best described as enormous snake-like creatures with the torso and arms of a man. They spend half their

Sigil Emporium – Death’s Scythe

Death comes for us all. We don’t know where. We don’t know when. But we know we’ll see him one day. He is an inevitability and that is why we fear the reaper. On his pale horse, he can ride through villages and towns and reap thousands of souls during times of war or plague; or he can sneak in like a thief in the night to claim just one soul amongst hundreds. With his scythe, he severs the bonds between the physical and the spiritual, allowing the soul to leave this realm and move on. One would think that this is too great a power for mortals to have, and

Sigil Emporium – Conquest’s Bow

Legend says that God granted this bow to an ambitious king along with a white horse and golden crown, and allowed him to take as much as he wanted from the world. This Scourge of God laid waste to a quarter of the world, conquering all that he saw and killing those that would not bend the knee. He was king of kings and emperor of emperors. He ruled with an iron fist in a velvet glove, and his reign was both a golden age for those that loved him and a dark age for the dissidents. But he was mortal, and eventually, he passed. Without him, the greatest empire known

Sigil Bestiary – Archangel

Archangels lead the choirs of heaven in their eternal, exultant jubilation. Yet they also lead heaven’s armies and command the righteous troops when the angelic host march to war. As the leaders of the celestial realm, the Archangels bear the greatest of responsibilities and the heaviest of burdens. For that reason, when an Archangel deigns to descend to the mortal realm, it will only be for the most crucial and pivotal of reasons. Woe betides anyone who then stands in the Archangel’s way. Archangels, by their very nature, are neither aggressive nor provoking creatures. They don’t come to our realm to fund glory, settle grudges or pick fights. They come only
