Campaign of the Month: August 2012
Deep in the Demonweb Pits
Eclavdra Eilservs stood erect in the darkened chamber of the anteroom – at once at ease within the wriggling spiders that scuttered around her feet but also anxious about her immediate future. It was not often that she was summoned into the dark heart of the Demonweb Pits and anyone who entered that place would have good cause to be anxious, even if they were favoured of the Queen; for that Queen was as cold as darkness itself and as unpredictable as the fate of the Universe.
Around her in the hall were chitinous images of torture and despair that seemed to move and shift through phases of shadow and ether. A great silver web sprawled across the ceiling, glinting greenly in the dimmest of lights. In the adamantine pews to her right sat three stunningly beautiful elven females, all armed with deadly poison blades and adorned with silver and obsidian jewellery. But they were not Drow. Eclavdra, head cleric of the House of Eilservs, knew they were veteran Yochlols – dire handmaidens of the Dark Queen. On the dias in front of her stood an even more powerful Yochlol in her natural form. Yllach-Kara-Hilch was the High Yochlol of the Demonweb Pits – a demoness so evil that even Eclavdra herself flinched under her gaze.
A black eye surveyed Eclavdra from a shadowy trunk sprouting slimy tentacles that continually moved in a deadly seductive and mesmerisingly fluid movement. Yllach-Kara-Hilch did not speak with sound or words. She communicated telepathically, boring her thoughts intrusively into the High Priestess’s mind.
“Her Majesty demands to know that you are prepared, Priestess”, the Yochlol communicated.
“I am, Mistress”, Eclavdra replied.
“Excellent! All plans fall into place then.”
“What of Gossamer?” Eclavdra asked.
“It will be destroyed. The webs holding it have already been weakened, and soon everything in it will fall into the lap of Her Majesty.”
“Then I am glad, Mistress,” the priestess hesitantly replied.
“Be on your way, Priestess. I have already looked into your mind and seen all I need to see.”
Eclavdra Eilservs turned and walked out of the room. Even though she felt honoured to have been summoned to the chamber, she was also glad to leave.
