Villain Spotlight: Eshaq The Zealotous
200 years since the last of his disciples have perished Eshaq has risen to spread the gospel of his now dead god. This section includes a map of of Eshaq’s lair, and plot hooks to introduce Eshaq to your game.
A CR 17 undead creature, Eshaq was once the prophet of an evil deity. His reward for a lifetime of faithful servitude was being embalmed and interned in a temple but he was quickly forgotten with the passage of time.
Villain Spotlight: Karthus the Fallen God
A CR 20 epic encounter for your players. He is called the Fallen God by some, but it might be more apt to think of Karthus as a trickster deity as he aims to see his deific power returned through merciless deception, peerless guile, and exquisite planning.
The wisdom with which this once great entity ruled pantheons is now turned upon mortals, adventurers that Karthus uses as pawns in a deadly game to reclaim his place in the cosmos!
