The Necromantic Strand of the Magics holds many dark, powerful secrets. It is a multifaceted Strand that has at its core the manipulation of the energies that govern death in its multitude of facets. Each Necromancer tends to typically excel in one facet more than the others. It is rare that a Necromancer has dominion over all the different aspects of the School of the Soul. Lord Cartigas is perhaps the only Necromantic Magus that truly controls all the manifestations of the dark magics. Even Lord Cartigas, though, admires Niantha’s ability to manipulate the energies required to control the dangerous and powerful shades. Shades are dark souls of evil beings that have been corrupted into perverse entities in their time in the planes beyond this life.

Known as the Mistress of Shades, Niantha is able to summon the energies needed to control the dark creatures and bend their will to her own. Along with Ronulen and Larther, Ninatha makes up one third of the Dark Trinity that governs the Necromancers below only Lord Cartigas himself. Ninantha is power hungry and unscrupulous at her core, stopping at nothing to curry her master’s favor and improve her position in the dread ranks of the Necromancers’ growing armada. Only time will tell if her pursuit for power will give her the prominence she seeks, or if it will completely consumer her in the process.

Jason’s Blog: The Ureis

IMG_1075

Cult followers: The Ureis

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

Two weeks ago I did a blog on the mysterious Whisperers. Since I had so much fun with that, I wanted to create another!

DISCLAIMER: As with all my blogs, these are just my fictional creations to add to the layers of mythology that is the world of Necromancers’ Pride. If I were to create something in the world, it would be this. They don’t really exist…but wouldn’t it be cool if they did?

Introducing, The Ureis.

This unique cult originated in the central country of Therid. The name comes from two siblings from the Urei family who began the cult. The Ureis were a small group of Magi until they revolutionized their thinking into giving the mentally ill a chance for success.

Allied to The Whisperers, The Ureis still have their mouths, but some may argue they don’t have minds. Ureis are hand picked only. Urei leaders believe there are magical opportunities in psychotic people, people who imagine but are convinced their convoluted, imaginary machinations are real. From their perspective, psychotic people are visited by spirits that are used to attempt to guide their lives to their ultimate purpose in life.

What happens next?

Once the next initiate is selected, The eldest Urei conjures a spell to animate the hallucinations of the initiate to conquer their mental capacity. Once the ritual is complete, the new Urei must learn to sacrifice their own physical and subconscious being to the ether realm.

Why? What does this for them?

With no control of any portion of their mind, the Urei believe they are able to become one with the magical world if they give their wholeness of life to  the magi, they will become one with the spiritual beings assigned to enhance their true destines.

There ya go! Another strange cult. Let me know what you think of the Ureis in contrast to The Whisperers in the comments!

See ya next week!

Terridous the Bold

Terridous the BOLD

Height: 5’9″

Weight: 159 lbs.

Birthplace: Nortgard Mountains, Aldara

Preferred Weapon: Spell casting

Preferred Spell: Fireball

Wisdom, it is said it comes with age. In the case of Terridous the Bold, attitude also comes with age … bad attitude, and a lot of it. A powerful Battle Magus, Terridous earned his moniker, ‘the Bold,’ because of his brazen acts of lawlessness as a smuggler up and down the western coast and northern stretches of the Known Kingdoms. So reckless and daring he was in several of his more notable heists that even the most unscrupulous and dastardly of smugglers, rum-runners and scoundrels avoided Terridous and his bold and aggressive ways. Terridous the Bold became a name that was indeed well earned.

His years of evading the law came to an end in the northern Kingdom of Aldara. Captured while engaging in more of his typically nefarious activities, Terridous the Bold now finds himself captured by Corwyn and Wren, two Oslyn charged with taking him to the prison camps in Tanner’s Landing. Well, they may call themselves Oslyn, though Terridous insists that they are just young pups playing at being warriors. What does the future hold for Terridous the Bold and his two young captors? What mysteries does the aged Magus hide behind his weathered stare?

Caiya’s Blog: Casting the Big Guy

Hi, everybody.

OK, so, I know I said that this week I was going to talk about something else. I know that I had spoken of taking us in a new direction. I wanted to give you my perspective on a whole new subject. Then the Middle Ages got in the way.

Yep, the Middle Ages are the whole new subject on which I have to give my perspective (see dad, I didn’t end my sentence in a preposition). I have a big assignment due at school, and as D.W. and my dad both insist, “SCHOOL COMES FIRST!”

Still, as far as a subject goes, the Middle Ages are pretty cool, so it’s not all bad.

So, I am going to give you a post that I had ready to go. It is my casting choice for Rogen.

Rogen:

Chris Hemsworth
(He was definitely my first choice for Rogen. Big, burly… Blonde. Many reasons, and it helps that he is a magnificent actor.)

So there you go. Remember kids, get your school work done first. Do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do.

Until next time … stay posted.

Gascon's saying

Gascon

Gascon's saying

 

Height: 5’10”

Weight: 170 lbs.

Birthplace: Longshire, Aldara

Preferred Ability: Wind Song

Special Talent: Manipulation

Weavers are known for their ability to charm, beguile and flatter. They are the voices of the realms, with the ability to share information across thousands of miles with their amazing singing. Called the Wind Song, Weavers are the great communicators. What would take a courier months to communicate via horseback takes mere moments for a Weaver. The gift of song also is accompanied by the gift of dance and play. Weavers do more than just spread news, they help to create it. They are the entertainers commissioned by royalty to entertain and impress their noble and powerful guests. A talented Weaver lives a life of fame, fortune and ease. An ambitious Weaver, well…an ambitious Weaver can rule.

In all the ranks of the Weavers, there is no one with as much ambition as Gascon. A Herrod of the First Order, a position held by only four of the most talented Weavers in the entire Guild, a position below only the Great Muse herself, Gascon has schemed, plotted and deceived his way into his position of power. Treachery and intrigue are his bedfellows, and he will stop at nothing to gain as much power for himself as is possible. The liaison between the Necromancers and the Weavers Guild, as well as a trusted member of Aldaran King Andriset’s inner circle of advisors, Gascon will pit all sides to the center in order to get what he wants. What he wants is simple enough. He wants to become the most powerful Weaver in the Known Kingdoms. He wants to rule. Will he be able to ascend to the rank of the Great Muse? Will his scheming lead to the power he covets, or will his plans thrust him into a deadly gambit that could topple kingdoms?
