Requiem of the Beasts
CE kobold priest of Kurtulmak
In the middle of a war patrol, a scion of Kurtulmak ascended from the darkness and touched a finger to Salvakas’s brow. An ancient magic awakened within him and erupted from the air, surrounding him in a penumbra of wailing spirits. A voice whispered to him and the scion was gone.
Salvakas returned to his tribe and spread his tale. Soon, the whole tribe followed him. He condemned Arsteros, the tribe’s leader, as the Bastard of Kuraulyek and banished him. He settled into Arsteros’s throne and assumed control of the tribe. He’s been leading it uneventfully for nearly a month.
