The Flesh (un)Relenting is a creation of the Masters of the Outside. An invisible stalker casted into the Mortal Realms to circumvent the ancient Laws and barriers placed upon the universe by the Gods (Order, Balance and Chaos) to prevent the Outside from leaking into the Mortal Realms.
Aversion – The Flesh (un)Relenting is effectively invisible to all creatures of the Mortal Realms due the simple fact that any sane mortal’s brain would utterly refuse it’s existence and promptly forget it saw anything. Only the insane (or thus who have been stalked for too long by the Outsider) can see it. When it is seen it appears as a tall emaciated figure with a too large twitching, featureless head and a distained, straining belly.
Encroachment – The Masters of the Outside created the Flesh (un)Relenting for the sole purpose of pushing on the walls of reality. Therefore, every living creature of the Mortal Realm can feel that pressure within 30’ of the Outsider. Twice a day (usually Sunrise and Sunset) all those within the range of the Encroachment must make a Saving Throw plus Wisdom modifier. If the save is failed the one who failed loses 1 point of Wisdom.
Fear Spike – If drawn into combat the Flesh (un)Relenting will release a concentrated wave of  its Outsider aura in a 60’ cone before it. All those affected by the cone must succeed a Saving throw – 4 + wisdom modifier. If the attack is successful those in the cone suffer 1d4 Wisdom damage.

Outsider Gate - If injuried in battle to 1/4 of its starting hit points, the Flesh (un)Relenting will begin to split apart, releasing a stgnant, rotting sent that has a 60% chance of knocking anyone within 15' unconicous. If the gaping in its skin is not closed within 2 rounds the Outsider wil die and a stable, large gate to the Outside will be left in its place.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
