Varkruul


Varkruul the White Wolf

The White Wolf is an elder Deity of the old world still worshiped throughout Almost. He is most heavily associated with the Ba'Roke tribes as they believe themselves to be direct descendants of the Wolf. Many still come to the borders of the grasslands to leave offerings to the Wolf's children in hopes of receiving blessings from the Boowa, great Shamans amongst the Ba'Roke.

Tribal tales told by the Boowa tell of how long ago The White Wolf battled a great menace from beyond the stars that sought to claim the Wolfs children and their lands. After a mighty battle the Great Wolf was victorious, his children safe. But he had become corrupted during the battle, infected by the Star Gods petulance, and so began the time known as the Consummation of the Wolf.

A transformation from The Great White Wolf into that of Varkruul the Welm of Wyrms. The Ba'Roke became divided and the tribe warred amongst itself. Those that chose to follow the Wyrm in turn became corrupted and nearing decimation fled into the Forbidden caverns far below the plains, while the Wyrm fled over the great mountain range known as the Spine of Pathos to return upon such a time as his transformation was complete,  his might fully established.


The Welm of Worms

Varkruul now sleeps. Recovering from the Consummation. To find his resting place one must pass the Spine Of Pathos and descend the endless steps through the Seven Visions- leading to his sleeping city. Locked within his ancient, alien, daymare vaults of hope he awaits his children.

  1. Hey Rake sent me. I dont play this game more of an OSR guy- but I really like the worldbuilding you are doing. I may have to steal some of this. I will keep checking back, if anything to get the juices flowing. Good to see someone doing something other than vanilla fantasy which is what this system seems geared to. I like old-school but the trip seems too old school. just curious if you run online?
