THE VILLAINS OF INZELADUN
Inzeladun is home to many villains. By villains, I do not mean one-shot bad-guys who get killed in an adventure or two. Villains are unique adversaries that keep coming back for more, continue to cause problems, and are genuinely hard to outwit or defeat. Most characters rarely come into actual combat with the villain - usually they battle the minions of the villain instead. Here are some of the current villains of Inzeladun.Kherit - Until recently, Sappanema Kherit was the Pharaoh of Khemt. His current whereabouts are unknown. Believed destroyed by Grindill at the end of the Sixth Year of the 8th Age, recent divinations indicate that this monster still exists in some form. Kherit, a priest of Set, seems to have almost unlimited power. The Twilight Gathering claims that Kherit is the lich of Thigru Thorkisen and possesses the Codex of the Infinite Planes, but this is unsubstantiated. Another source links Kherit as a rejuvenated Endrath, another lich. The Khemians claim that Kherit is the Avatar of Set. He is well reputed as a master of necromancy, alchemy, and alteration magic. Kherit is served by six of the most powerful mummies to ever walk Inzeladun.
Lord Garmund Xathurst - Formerly the King of Corinthia from 1038 V to 1068 V, Xathurst is now the undisputed King of Vampires on Inzeladun. Staked once by Neria, Xanath, and Lady Kia, Xathurst was returned to his undead state by Samadhi the wizard in order to end the Curse of Endrath. Xathurst has a host of vampire wives that aid him in his endeavors. He has multiple castles, but his main one is the Forbidden Castle (Akirfa Garmund) of Drychtnoth near the city of Xorgamundat. Originally a black robed mage, Garmund instituted the Red Robed Order. He also instituted the worship of Olanigan as Corinthia's patron god.Larbius the Gelugon - An ice devil from the pits of Hell, Larbius is very active in Inzeladun. He seeds cults, hysteria (and fear of devils); creates bargains, and tries to tempt mortals into delving into Angustian secrets. He is one of the rarest of the rare - a spellcasting devil. Little else is known of him.
Golems are some of the greatest villains to have. Intense and nearly unstoppable. Zaius Rathe is the foremost golem creator of my world. Demi of Atman Tor created the old fashioned automatons, but other obsessed alchemists and mages have created true monsters.
Dr. Dalby is newly arrived to Inzeladun from Gothic Earth, another prime material plane linked to Ravenloft. He is a vampire and a golem builder. He is also the man who designed the disease that is rampaging and killing the demihumans of Inzeladun.
Mind Flayers are fascinating creatures of untold potential. They are currently in the process of a full scale invasion of Inzeladun, using Sheens as their newest weapons!
The Yuan Ti are some of the most evil and vile monsters ever to slither across a planet.
