Chaos Cultists, Adepts, and Prophets!

The tattooed figure before the idol continued chanting as Rathgar hewed his way through the cultists. “It was foolish to come alone!” He yelled between chants.

Rathgar pulled his sword from the thick hide of yet another cultist while blocking wicked dagger with his splintering shield. “He just keeps on talking...” he muttered.

One of the cultists in front of Rathgar opened his mouth vomiting out a green stream. Rathgar screamed, and the surrounding cultists all raised their daggers to strike him down. Nimble and Allianora’s invisibility dropped as they cut down the cultists.



The high priest paused in his chants and called out “By the dark whispers of Yaquath’qtha, that which lurks in the far beyond, I name thee worms that crawl blind under the sun!”

Nimble stumbled, his blade swinging wide as his eyes clouded over. “I can’t see!”

Allianora smashed her mace into a cultist’s head, and the body crumpled to the floor. Another instantly took his place. “Feris! Do something!”

“Way ahead of you” replied a voice next to the dark priest. Feris appeared his hand upon the cultist leader’s shoulder. His body seemed entirely tense, eyes wide. blue lightning coursed across his skin, leaving zigzag burnmarks where they flowed.”

Chaos Cultists are humans who have sworn dark oaths to demons, devils or other beings from the far planes. They always appear with some mark or change that makes them stand out from normal men, even subtly, and makes those of a more lawful nature tend to shun them instinctively.

For every 6 Cultists there will be an Adept who acts as their leader. All cults will be lead by a Prophet.

Chaos cultists have been granted a boon by their dark power, and a bane that comes with it. Roll on the charts below to determine the nature of the boon. Each boon implies a type of bane. For example, claws may hinder the ability to hold items. Wings may make the use of armor difficult. Generally each cultist within a cult will share the same boons and banes.
