The Followers Of Nolan & Johnson - A New Post Apocalyptic Factional Monster For Your Old School Campaigns

The Followers of Nolan and Johnson are alien humanoid travelers from a distant dimension whose home plane was the subject of a sub quantum echo disaster in their own dimension after an attempt to tap into the Beyond as a power source for  time travel to prevent a possible apocalyptic event failed. The attempt resulted in the collapse and annihilation of their own universe and time line as well as the scattering of these beings across several alternative space and time lines; now they are nothing more then mute witnesses to the events across dimensional space. But even in their undead state they have a plan, a dangerous and highly insane plane. Like bugs circling the drain of a sink even as entropy has its way with them, the Followers appear at random times in post apocalyptic wastelands as figures in tattered uniforms of unknown militaries and armed forces. They're pathetically reach out to hold the hands or touch their targets, communicating telepathically pathetic partial messages of impending disaster and horror. Those who respond to their touch often have their higher consciousness and souls absorbed by the sub quantum echoes of the Followers resulting in the birth of another Follower.

There is speculation that there actually only two real followers, and that those souls that they drain an absorb are being used to fuel their attempts at resurrecting their own original universe and timeline. Those who have survived the chilling touch of these beings have gotten telepathic glimpses of their mad plans;very little hard information exists on these beings. They appear when, where, and how they wish, what is known that because they anchor themselves with negative planar webs to local space time, clerics can turn these beings as they would ordinary wraiths. The Followers of Nolan and Johnson notices and locates living creatures within 60 feet, just as if it possessed the blindsight ability. It also senses the strength of their life force automatically, as if it had cast deathwatch.These abilities are automatically on always. Only a holy word may banish these beings from the local space time but they may eventually creep back in to the ordinary universe as a bug under the cracks between dimensions. Demons and other higher or lower dimensional beings loath and fear these beings but will not reveal why. The followers of Nolan and Johnson remain a hateful and dangerous presence within the post apocalyptic wastelands across many dimensions but they seem to especially infest the wastelands of Accursed Atlantis but why is not known.
