FLAVIUS WRESTLES THE WYRMLING

Flavius/Wyrmling

Whilst on his way to a rematch with the great rogue dragon, Flavius encounters the newly-hatched young dragons (Wyrmlings). Being every inch the carnivore, one of the little beasts gives our brave knight yet another rough ride. Flavius does manage to inflict enough pain to drive off the aggressive and hungry young reptile without killing it.
This image is featured on the back cover of Paladin.
Unicorn Oracle Yellow

Unicorn Oracle

Beautiful and nearly omnipotent, the oracle will cast his powerful magic and prophecies upon those who ask for it -- for a price: A stiff price; not a monetary price but a quest or maybe a magic item or some sort of sacrificial offering.
THE ABOMINATIONS

Minotaur

All over Varzuun there exist certain bizarre, deadly, and terrifying monsters. Some are distortions of humanity, such as giants, ogres, trolls, etc. Some are human-animal hybrids. Others are multiple animal hybrids. Yet others are stranger beasts altogether. Some are found in many places. Some are unique to a specific place and time. They are collectively known as the Abominations, and they include the undead and supernatural monsters as well.
THE OGRE

OGRE3

Hulking, fat and ugly, this nine-foot-tall fearsome brute haunts the road to Kilravock. Flavius must singlehandedly vanquish the ogre if he is to prove his mettle to the Vaqlorii grand chancellor and to the Unicorn Oracle.
SMEDDEGS AND SMOLLEKS

Smeddeg

Smolleks, the Maedar word for goblins, are no more than waist-high to a man because of their hunched and bent-legged stance. They resemble monkeys that had survived some sort of forest fire. Their mottled leathery skin looks like a mass of scar tissue with small tufts of randomly placed fur. Their large hooked noses and beady little yellow eyes gave their long faces a vulture-like appearance. Smolleks, when alone, are nothing more than cowardly little annoyances, not much in a fight, but when in packs, they are vicious marauders that can move with surprising speed.

The smeddegs are truly nasty monsters that would kill and eat humans if they can, but if they caught maybe just one person, they would torture him in hope that others would come back to rescue him and fall into their trap. They will flee a strong show of force but are nearly fearless. It would need to be a very strong show. Bigger and stronger than the smolleks, they are easily a match for a human, one-on-one.


SmaddegAxe

The Smeddegs make only crudely crafted primitive weapons such as clubs, axes, hammers, & spears, but tribal warlords & shamans will have swords, maces, and the best of weapons from those they have slain in raids. Among them are swords, maces, & war axes, including possibly magic ones.
 
THE VAQLORII

Vaqlorii Girl

Slim, beautiful and mysterious, they are skilled practitioners of magic and lovers of the arts. The Vaqlorii are a serene and gentle people; But, they are also quite xenophobic and fiercely territorial.
THE MAEDAR

Wace

Hulking, powerful and hauntingly mysterious, they dwell in the deep places of the World Beneath the World. The Maedar are generally amicable to humans, despite the humans' fear and mistrust of them.
DRACONIS DRAKHENSIS

Draconis Drakhensis

Draken Knights to their former glory?
THE FAE (FAERIES)

Queen of the Faeries

Sometimes friendly, sometimes malicious, the faerie-folk will vehemently defend their domains, be those sylvan glades, ancient ruins, zones of wild magic, or even the forbidden zone. They are sometimes helpful in finding magic objects and other artifacts.
TYRANTHUS

Dragon Flying

Ridden by Anvilus Noire, this menacing beast can swallow a man whole or incinerate him with it's breath of hell-fire. This black dragon's appearance was a nightmarish fulfillment of one of the ancient prophecies.
ROGUE DRAGONS

Rogue Dragon Queenard a

Dragons that do not commune with a Draken Knight-Ascendant become rogues. Solitary and violent, they are usually appeased only by treasure, magic items or human sacrifices. Flavius & friends must reach the hidden lair of one of these monsters and slay it before it slays them.

THE FATE OF THE TROLL-KING
