ravine- ardeshian whisperers by nebezial ravine- ardeshian whisperers by nebezial
said to have arrived in the old days with the dragons and the eani, avatari of aertes. Whisperers never truly stepped into the world. A partial existence of eternal hunger is what they endured, and according to the stories it is in eastern Ardesh they first started inhabitiing the bones of the dead.
It was in Ardesh in the age of civil war that army of rebels decided to dessecrate the crypt of the dead king , but they were met by the royal army, so among the graves they waged their battle

Focused on each other it took some time till both sides became aware that every slain man has risen to fight them all, and in short while they were surrounded by the dead and massacred
So the first legion of whisperers has risen. They realised there is power in the bones, they could link to any bone and make it their new body. Alas for them the link was unstable and often the corporeal link fell apart

It was necryte Varda who first perfected the link by fusing bones to armours imbued with barans spiral, and the dead glory was made. Allthough a part of his armies consisted of posessed, living bodied inhabited by the spirit of the dead who in exchange for new life pledged absolute loyalty to Varda, it is the dead glory that was the main axis of his army.

they had no fear, no weaknesses and with every enemy slain they could increase their numbers, they resisted magics , couldnt be slain by arrows, feasted on the souls of the dead only true threaths were heavy weaponry wielding warriors who could smash the armors to bitsor sever the limbs that allowed them to keep killing

dragonfire as purest form of natural magic failed to penetrate the smoke whisperers generated, if they had a weakness it was the fact that they werent skilled wariors but with their numbers and inbvulnerability to many attacks they needed no skill

still the dead glory was stopped and destroyed in the ravenora battlethrough smart tactical use of powerful land dragons and heavily armored calvary and infantry mixed with a great number of war machines

varda put too much faith into the dead glory for he thought his own spellwork would be able to deal with enemys tactics, but here too he made a grave mistake when he met the young king nebezial asheri, the raven of the north, and here varda was defeated and his army of whisperers was destroyed

after this , great care was taken to incinerate every dead body as a part of funeral rituals in ravine, tho some nations like dregy preferred a more romanticised ritual of binding a wadlar tree seed to its inhabitants, and after their death the seed would engulf the body and grow into a tree above it, these medium sized trees had a curious trait od repelling whisperers, and so dregya grew to be surrounded by a forest .

since vardas warthere have been no significant appearances of whisperers anywhere near palladron alliance regions

You certainly enrich fantasy-art with your works... may sound simpleton yet in my youth art like yours motivated us to indulge roleplay and read the books at all..

Sounds like some truly scary customers.

And also, a great idea for a new class of undead to make for my Pathfinder games.

aah , yeah i remember him tho didnt know he was called azure knight, cool :), but yeah imho sc was the best line of fights tho even today i still prefer the original soul blade on ps1, simpla cause the swords were breakable so blocking was a fine art of strategy there

I like the 3rd couse its the only one i have. XP
And i love the fighting style in the game for it isnt unfair like in mortall combat game's and also not borring to get your combo's right.

And respect the azure knight.
...or knights as the blade has been passed down from person to person several time's.

also love siegfrieds hate towards the blade.
