They are all that remains of a once great alien civilization. These creatures are mere toys left on a planet barren of all life & consciousness of their inhabitants. These creatures are used as part of a sacrament of a group of renegade scientists on the Eastern end of the Milky Way Galaxy.
When the planetary alignment is at its highest these men go down into the cold eco-caves of the R'TERARRA. They harvest the worms & place them within cold sleep.
These creatures are kept within deep cellars of ice & cold where they mature into a final strange form of organ.
Those who are ready are prepared for the surgery & sacrament of the worm.
Their bodies are anointed with the most sacred oils & herbs. They are taken deep within the temples of the ancients.
The worm makes its attack on the victim's organs & mind all at once.
There the being's third eye opens as the creature makes its way down deep into the ancestral memories. It rapes the conscious of the person making them less & more then a mere human being.
They are led down past the depths of the Akashic records & the halls of the myriad of demons who wait within themselves. They are taught secrets that no man was meant to know. They gain the all of their scared vocation.
Around the body are placed demon traps lest any of these planar monsters who dwell in the Outer Darkness escape into the surrounding reality.
Many have called this the evil eye or the false eye.
The astronauts, scientists, & priest of this cult gain the following super science powers:
Self Control, Bio PK, Disbelieve, Psychokinesis, Planar Barrier, Hologram Superior, Space Madness, Esp
These are only a sampling of the powers that have been seen. Many Atlans, 3rd Men, & others employ these so called Returners as mercenaries, spies, & worse.
The worm like organ continues to exist deep within the body & mind of the user. These returners have been known to live 300 years or more from the worm's influence growing more alien & stranger as time rolls on.
Good stuff! If your imagination has bounds, we've yet to find them. One typo: I think you mean "akashic" record rather than records from Asia--but maybe not. ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks Trey! I appreciate that very much & the typo was corrected! Stay tuned lots more to come!ReplyDelete
Absolutely wonderful stuff!ReplyDelete
Over time, this group could become really, really weird and inspire a lot of incredible adventures in and of themselves. This could work as another fine Rogue Space pocket-mod adventure, too!
Fenway 5 has my permission to take whatever he wants to & create anything really cool. Garrison have you heard from Drune by any chance? Is there any news on Human Space Empires?ReplyDelete
Thanks for all of the words of encouragement & there will be much more to come!ReplyDelete
Alas, no news from The Drune, nor any word regarding Humanspace Empires. Perhaps in the coming year we'll hear something...ReplyDelete
Hope all is well with The Drune. Games are just diversions, real life always takes precedence.
I'd love to see more Human Space Empires. I know that real life takes priorties over these hobbies of ours. I worry is all really. There will be more to come.ReplyDelete
