Zinedoms (Issue 3, April 2013)


Herophet is a fiery wasteland, filled with rivers of magma and blistering, cracked mountains out of which lava falls as molten waterfalls. The land is almost entirely barren - a blackened, charred and cracked landscape where geysers spout hot gasses or volcanic debris, sometimes hundreds of meters into the sky. Pellets of sticky fire fall from the skies instead of rain and the sky itself is filled with combustible gases that burn and explode.

Despite this, many things live amongst this terrible landscape. Mostly these are creatures straight out of the dungeons of Herophet, including the many devils that make up the majority of the population. Devils are obscene and vile creatures, filled with all the evil their maker poured into them. They are the corrupted souls of once living creatures, many of whom were captured, enslaved and eventually condemned into servitude. Others have joined the ranks willingly as servants of evil whose greed and desire for power were purchased at a high price. [read more...]
