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.

The Unholy of Llamolaek

The residents of Abbadon are nothing more than the embodiment of hate. Whereas the infernal seeks to control the world, and the abbsyal seek to cause chaos upon it, the Daemons seek to end it. This week we look at a former horseman of the apocalypse Llamolaek, the Daemon Harbinger of rebirth, rites of passage, and transformations. I present three possible sects you can use to populate your game.

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

The Next Step

For some nature is perfect. For others nature could use a little nudge toward true perfection. The members of this sect of Llamolaek look to push nature to what they believe is perfection by using magic and science to manipulate it. Following the footsteps of the wizards who crafted such creatures as owlbears and even the hobgoblin race, The Next Step is never satisfied.

Members of this sect are mostly wizards and alchemists although the occasional cleric, arcanist, sorcerer, or investigator joins. The experiments they perform require, not only knowledge of magic or alchemy, but an understanding of anatomy. When adventurers come across never before seen magical beasts, it is a good bet that it is an escaped or loosed experiment of The Next Step.

The Beyonders

The Beyonders are a sect of worshipers of The Ascended who look past their current lives and seek to serve their master after a rebirth. They hope to bypass becoming the tortured souls which most of those who end up in Abbadon become. They wish to serve their Daemonic master by being reborn as Daemons after their death.

Only a handful of chosen can actually become Daemons, or so it is believed, thus the Beyonders have two sets of membership. There are those who may well and truly become servants of Llamolaek, and then there are the poor souls they trick into thinking they might. Because of the need for these other sacrifices, this sect is abnormally large for a cult of one of the Harbingers.

The Mothmen

Every little boy is told that one day he’ll be a man. Many cultures have an event or a time that denotes the transition from childhood to manhood. But not all little boys want to wait. Some of them want to be grown up so bad that they’ll do anything. And like moths to a flame they will jump at any chance to prove their manhood.

The Monthmen take advantage of these young men. They use their silver tongues and honeyed promises to get them to do things that they otherwise wouldn’t. Promises that certain deeds will ensure manhood lead these poor boys down the path of destruction. Rogues, bards, and other ne’er-do-wells make up the ranks of this sect. Most of their victims are left to face the consequences of their tainted rites of passage, although those who show promise may be taken in as apprentices to later become Mothmen of their own.

That which is old becomes new again to the followers of this dark being. Who is your disciple of Llamolaek? Why have they chosen to dedicate themselves to The Ascended? Where does their devotion to this Daemon Harbinger come from? Let me know in the comments.
