Thread: Vanthrax - Undead Sorcerer

  1. #1

    Vanthrax - Undead Sorcerer

    We need a few undead heroes. I think this one may fit the bill. Lintking's pitch ran thus:

    Vanthrax went from the village scapegoat, to the village bully, to the village's Tyrannical Overlord in the space of six months as his magic manifested. He was eagerly positioning himself, in fact, to continue his meteoric rise to become, perhaps, a full Sorcerer Lord himself. A bit too eagerly, though; he drew too much of the wrong kinds of attention, and was summarily dispatched and brought back as an undead servant. His natural power, though, kept his mind intact, and though he is now forced to serve others, he does so reluctantly.

    Abilities: Caster, Corrupt
    Perks: Undead

    I would tweak the lore here a tad, but in the main I like it. We might want to give him Create Undead as well.

    Either way, he's a nice clean undead sorcerer.

    +/-1s?

    Vanthrax does sound like a heavy metal band... lol.

    Do we have other suggestions?

    That does sound like a heavy metal band. Picking names is always a pain.

    Here a few suggestion.

    Vamon, Dantahs, Vhadax, Morozar

    Regarding the name I've always admired the concept used in Glen Cook's "Black Company" and to some extent in "Myth The Fallen Lords" game.

    Ancient evil sorcerers do not have "real" names, they just have some wicked nicknames for example:
    - Stormbringer
    - The Hanged Man
    - The Limper
    - Nightcrawler

    or
    - The Deceiver
    - The Lurker
    - The Watcher

    However you need to bring in several "nicknamed evils" to create certain "feel", not just one.

    P.S. The band is "Anthrax" not "Vanthrax"

    Given the lore (a local rise to power and then defeat and servitude) I'm not sure he really earned a nickname, imo. Something normal but associated with villainy like Smyth, Silas, or Drayvon.
