06-23-2010, 03:57 PM
The village of Auvil sits nestled in a mountain pass along a major trade route. For as long as anyone can remember they have always had a great harvest and never suffered a serious disaster. The only problem they have seems to be a problem with bandits on the road as a number of lone travelers and small groups never seem to make it to their destination. When a the child of a prominant person goes missing many questions are asked and the friendly people of Auvil suddenly become very tight lipped. Something strange is going on in the village.

Big Hole gonna put some sort of structure around it or some thing.

First level
Brackish water flows through it.
This is the home to the minions of thing that should not be. Where sacrifices are processed and delivered to the next level.


Questions comments hate it. let me know

When the founders of Auvil took the lands from the barbarians that inhabited it they discovered a shrine in an out of the way location. The villagers priest felt a great deal of power in that location and sanctified in the name of his deity and built a temple there. Over time the priests of the village became more beligerent and vocal over the defense of the town. They also called for violent punishments for those who broke the law or blasphemed. During a violent revolt against the local lord a number of rebels were executed in the temple. After this mass execution the temple began to shake forcing everyone out of it. The floor began to crack and grow a sickly green hue and a hole began to bore out of the middle of the temple. A raspy voice invaded the heads of all those present it thanked them for awakening it from its slumber. It promised them good fortune and a protection for one year due to their sacrifice. It also promised them renewed good fortune for every year they renewed the pact. It also demanded that two children of the village be given every year to serve it. The villagers infused by the thoughts of the creature agreed those that resisted the offer were the sacrificed that day to gain more good fortune. This was over two hundred years ago and today the villagers still maintain their bond giving them strangers and their children in order to have good fortune for the village. They often give any sickly or deformed children to serve it. The temple is only visited when the time for sacrifice has come and then the entire village must be present by law of the village.

That creature is quite disgusting. If it were me, I'd make the eyball a bit more deformed. And perhaps an oozing orifice at the side..
