Hey guys, this is going to be a blog, as the name suggests, about the creatures and spirits that live in the Ghurian forest Aazsh: a tribe of beastmen led by the Beastlord Gulthrax, and a nighthaunt procession led by the infamous death-goddess Mother Llegé. This is carrying on from a plog I started but never really connected with; hopefully this will do better!

I will update with some pictures later today, as well as some lore. Thanks for looking!

Deep in the misty strands of time, back in the Age of Myth, Nagash, Supreme Lord of Undeath, set about devouring underworlds and minor death gods with the aim to conquer Shyish as his own realm. He succeeded, but he did not devour all of those he aimed to.

In the underworld of Hel’scrazar, one reserved for tortured souls, two death gods ruled supreme: the Grand Matriach Llegé, and the Almighty Patriach Scorczö, known collectively as the Deathly Wed. When the Undying King came to their kingdom, Llegé and Scorczö fought valiantly together, but, in the end, the Rattlebone Prince proved to strong. In one final battle, deep in the forest of Razzar in Hel’scrazar, Scorczö sacrificed himself in order for Llegé to live. Nagash destroyed Hel’scrazar, and devoured Scorczö, but Llegé survived. Pained and badly wounded, she fled to a forest in Ghur. She lives there to this day, drawing in souls from the nearby cities and slowly crafting an arming of spirits, in some hope of recreating the land in which she and her husband lived in. 

It is said that the servants of Mother Llegé are eternally crying for the loss of their mistress’s home, but that their tears manifest themselves not in drops of water, but of blood. The villagers say you can hear them wailing at night, if only you listen. It is a shrill sound, like the cawing of birds, and it can drive a mortal mad.

Hey, some BoC today:

Knight-Incantor Galath strode through the forest of Aazsh. Worrying reports of strange sightings and... heretical practises were sent every day to the Orders of Azyr about Aazsh. Just as he approached a large, ominous stone building, a voice made him whip round in fear. A purple figure, atop a disk of Tzeentch, charged towards him, whipping its ritual dagger across his helmet in a treacherous swipe. Just as Galath regained his stature, the tzaangor cawed out in a voice like knives grinding against each other: “Pity to waste such a... tenacious spirit... I have a better use for you in mind.” With that he uttered an incantation, and Galath’s body began to swell. His face shifted to an avian visage, a third arm sprouted from his side and impure yet...comforting thoughts filled his twisted mind. “Arise, Galathrax, my champion, and seek out those who would wrong your people!”

...And the result of the encounter.
