The Foul Stench of Death

Written by Admin | Tags: ,

The festering stench can mean only one thing… the Bone Griffons are coming. All races in the Uncharted Seas have learnt to fear the unrelenting deathly nature of the Griffons, and many sea captains turn and flee when they see the wretched vessels of this race and hear the almost unearthly moans of their gnarled warriors.

Of the ships in this race’s arsenal of weapons that can send shivers down the spine of any enemy, the Pestilence Class Cruiser is one of the more grotesque. As it closes on an enemy vessel the sound of cranking and the clattering of metal against metal can be heard, the sound of death being prepared.

Once the slow, final ratchet clangs into place, it is only moments before a terrible fury is unleashed on its target. The colossal fore weapon hurls a foul, putrid lump of rotting flesh, infused and rancid with the hatred and vileness that drives the Bone Griffons. Each pulsating projectile the Pestilence launches attaches itself to any crew member too slow to get out of its way, infesting their flesh and ending their life.

Stories of an encounter with the Bone Griffons is enough to make even the most hardened seaman shudder; but now tales of the Pestilence’s gruesome weaponry spread amongst the taverns, and crews are no longer fearful of facing the Griffons, now they are truly horrified.

For the Bone Griffons, the new Pestilence Class Cruiser epitomises the very essence of their decayed, cruel ways.
