Research: Monstrous Mythology and Relics
« on: January 18, 2019, 02:17:36 pm »
Lilana would be seen bustling about the library of Valstiir, asking the staff questions about books describing the myths of local monstrous tribes, oftime inquiring whether or not they could be related to a temporal union against a common foe. In addition to this, she would ask about items of particular value to the many orcs, ettins, bugbears, minotaurs and however many other monstrosities exist in the region, regardless of how apocryphal the reports may have appeared.

One such tale you read about was contained in a story, about a resent event where the a group of adventurers added a clan of Bugbears. As a result of this action to help this Bugbears, the group was given a Lantern to be used to call upon them in time of need, to repay there debt. The story goes on to say that the item was then given after some time to Fey in the form of a Butterfly. The story doesn't tell the location or name of the fey involved.

Other tales of relics Monstrous Mythology and Relics are general in nature ...

- the tale of the Shield of the Clans, a story of a Great Shield that leads the Orcs as one.

- the tale of the Pumpkin Goblins and the Mythical Magical Pumpkin

- the tale of the Fire Breathing Kobolds and the Skull of the Dragon

- the tale of the Isle of Lizardmen and a Spear of the Stars

more tales can be found with further research ...
Build it and they will come.
