Nes’Ahrez is the weakest of the Great Outsider Gods.  Oddly this weakness makes It far easier for Nes’Ahrez to exert his influence in the Mortal Realm. Ne’Ahrez seeks out thieves, murderers and those with weak minds that seek to harm their fellow mortal.

Whispering of power to those It chooses through dreams and visions, Nes’Ahrez offers power in return for their souls and service. There are very few who say no, and those that do are usually found with their minds burnt away.

The transformation to a minion of Nes’Ahrez leaves the Cultist a fine thread of sanity as the power of the Outside floods through them. After the deal is struck the Cultist finds it heard to stay within civilization as his body trans-morphs into that of a humanoid spider.

Spider Cultist typically reside in the temples of the Outsider Spider God Nes’Ahrez in small colonies of up to 3d6 Cultist. These temples to the Fell god can be found in fetid marshland and ancient forgotten crypts.

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…

Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.

The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.

More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
