Amanitae, "destroying angels," are embodiments of destruction in Mej'Eyal. Like the Wraiths, they seem to arise spontaneously in reaction to unknown conditions, wreak havoc, and move on. Like the Wraiths, their bodies are more spiritual than physical and thus they have resistance to purely physical damage. Because of this, they have trouble interacting with physical objects properly, resulting in clumsiness.

Unlike their more established cousins the Dwarves, the Dremlings appear to be nomadic, having no set home. While Dremlings can pass for Dwarves in terms of height, weight, body build, and most physical features, where a Dwarf's face should be, a Dremling's face is a smooth and featureless blob of white. This is deeply unsettling to most civilized races, and rumors persist that the Dremlings are alternately Dwarves tainted by some magical experiment gone wrong, an attempt by extradimensional aliens to create imitation Dwarves, or something stranger still. Since the origins of the Dwarves are unclear to other races, the truth is likely known only to a few among the Dremlings and Dwarves themselves.

Like their more normal cousins, Dremlings possess the Resilience of the Dwarves which allows them to increase their armour, physical and spell saves for a few turns.

Dremlings are weaker in both mind and body than common Dwarves, but are even sturdier.

Wights are not created by necromancers specifically, but instead rise of their own volition, animated by the land itself. When a particular land has seen enough bloodshed - battlefields, forest, crypts and graveyards - wights can be seen to rise en masse, a near-physical representation of the battles and turmoil the land has faced.

Those who have had encounters with barrow wights speak of incorporeal creatures that lurk in the hills.

High Wights are not created by necromancers specifically, but instead rise of their own volition, animated by the land itself. When a particular land has seen enough bloodshed - battlefields, forest, crypts and graveyards - wights can be seen to rise en masse, a near-physical representation of the battles and turmoil the land has faced.

Those who have had encounters with wights often describe them as indistinct skeletal figures, wrapped in flowing cloaks that become faded and incorporeal at their edges, while strange lights dance where their eyes should remain. Survivors tell of a peculiar sense of exhaustion when in close proximity to them, as though merely being close to these figments of death causes one's life force to sputter and fade. Regardless of this and their ghostly appearance however, it has been recorded that steel and strength of arms is yet enough to destroy them, or at least to erase them for the time being.

Racial Talents

High wights are immune to poison and disease. They have 50% resistance to confusion and slow.

Undead are unnatural creatures and may not use infusions or be any Wilder classes. They do not gain the Harmony talent tree from eating the Heart of the Sandworm Queen, but they may consume a corrupted heart to gain the Vile Life talent tree.

Description

Perhaps you were mortal once - long, long ago. But that time has passed out of all reckoning. Your service to a higher power was devoted and faithful, and when the veil of mortality parted for you, you were returned from the other side. Powerful and implacable, you traveled the seas of reality at the behest of your patron - She who granted you Eternity. Worlds burned in your wake. However, due to an unforeseen conjunction - or perhaps due to taking the favor of your mistress for granted - you have been stranded in this strange world, stripped of most of your might.

As undead, Death Knights have access to a wide range of immunities:

  • Poison immunity
  • Bleeding immunity
  • Fear immunity
  • No need to breathe

The spirit of the death knight has been summoned using the medium of a local corpse, but fundamentally, Death Knights do not belong in Eyal. Their very natures clash with the fabric of reality, making it hard for anything to affect them and making it hard for them to act upon other things.

Note: Undead are unnatural creatures and may not use infusions or be any Wilder classes. They do not gain the Harmony talent tree from eating the Heart of the Sandworm Queen, but they may consume a corrupted heart to gain the Vile Life talent tree.
