CRB is a repository of all the creative things that float through my mind about the RPG Pathfinder. Two major features are random character generation and building characters based on the god they worship. Anything that seems like it adds to the creative aspects of the game will pop up from time to time, including location descriptions, adventure ideas and even short stories. CRB won't just be my own creativity, it will open the floor to anyone who has an idea sparked by what I present to you.

Feast of Blood and Bone

Devourers of Zura

The Demon Lords have run the gamut but all told they bring chaos to the world. Zura’s followers are vampires and cannibals and she is worshiped by some of the vilest creatures on the planet. We took a look at some of her possible followers in the cannibal halfling tribes of the Mwangi Expanse. But who else could possibly devote themselves to the Vampire Queen.

As always, let us imagine we are sitting at our theoretical gaming table. Our imaginary GM sets out the rules for the game we will play. In this game, we are to make a follower Zura. The character does not need to be a divine caster, just a devotee of the Demon Lord. What character do you make?

The Decadent Feast

The Decadent Feast is a small sect of approximately two dozen worshipers of the Demon Lord Zura. Twice a year they plan a great feast where they eat some of the rarest foods one can find. Most of the meals dishes are various types of meat, most provided by the host but each attendee must bring one dish with them. Between galas, members of the sect will send out parties to find just the right delight with which to serve their peers. Status within the sect is determined by these special dishes.

On top of the official sect, members a handful of others are invited to the feasts as well. It is considered a great honor to be presented with an invite. What these invitees usually don’t know is that some, or all, of them will be a special dish served at the end of the evening. Rarely one of these desserts will escape their fate and they are offered full status as a member of the sect.

Sisters of the Crimson Ablution

Tales from Ustalava have reached the shores of the Lake of Mist and Veils of a mysterious noble who bathes in the blood of virgins to remain young. Fear of losing their youthful appearances has made some of Brevoy’s noble women search for veracity of these claims. A small group of these vain nobles have found solace in the worship of Zura.

This sect consists of seven women across the noble houses of Brevoy. Although they worship Zura they see turning to true vampirism as a last possible recourse. For now they bathe in the blood of sentient beings to keep their fading youth. Although it started with the famed blood of virgins, some of them have taken to trying other types of blood. It is rumored that the most beautiful of the group has begun using the blood of fey creatures to fill her tub.

The Ulam Herr (Night Flier Tribe)

One of the Zura worshiping tribes of cannibal halflings in the Kaava Lands of the Mwangi Expanse. Although many tribes worship the Demon Lord the Ulam Herr have been granted unlife in the form of becoming vampires. The Ulam Herr are even feared by the other halfling tribes for the strength their undead warriors have.

The jungle and the tribe itself can only really support but so many vampires. The five tribal leaders of the Ulam Herr, the night whisperer of Zura, and the three war chiefs have been granted this gift. If one of them should be destroyed another is turned to take their place. A few others have been turned into vampire spawn but the rest remain mortal servitors to their vampire masters, and Zura.

Whether it is blood or the meat of sentient beings, Demon Lord’s followers are devourers. Who is your follower of Zura? Why have they chosen to dedicate themselves to the Vampire Queen? Where does their devotion come from? Let me know in the comments.
