Khemric Titan

A Khemric Titan is the name given by the Empire and Tilea to a type of massive Tomb Kings construct of onyx and stone that resembles a beetle. [1]

Appearance

They are enamelled and bejewelled to proclaim the wealth and are far larger than even the Necrosphinx. [1]

History

They were created to stand watch over sites of evil and lairs of monsters as few beings can fight such an entity as a Khemric Titan. [1]

Magic

The Shrine within the Titan can unleash several different spells:[1]

  • Reawakening of Ancient Might: Casting this regenerates a small amount of damage suffered by the Titan. [1]
  • The Gaze of Dust: A powerful magical missile. [1]
  • Wrath of the Sands: Effects enemies who find it hard to shoot and are slowed when they attempt to charge. [1]

Should it be destroyed, the entire entity explodes releasing all the magical energy it has gained over long ages and usually ageing nearby creatures to dust. [1]

Shrines of Eternity

Powering the immense construct is a Shrine of Eternity within which is the soul of a hero or even an entire dynasty of them, all sworn to guard their lord's domains beyond death. They also act as lodestones for the Winds of Magic which are drawn into and stored within the shrine. Should the Winds of Magic blow strongly they may walk unbidden by any Liche Priest. [1]

Weapons and Equipment

The creature-construct will use its variety of weapons to deal with different enemies. [1]

  • Breath of Night: The air is filled with a crawling darkness that can panic the living. [1]
  • Devouring jaws: Magical onyx and obsidian mandibles that can crush steel and shatter stone. [1]
  • Flesh-eating Scarabs: A swarm of scarabs are unleashed on the living. [1]
  • Reaping Blades: Massive scythe-like forelimbs. [1]
  • Soul Slaying Hunger: The Titan opens a howling gate to the realms of the dead that sucks in the living. [1]

Quotes

I have fought and bled in half a hundred battles. I have seen good men destroyed by the dead in the fens of Sylvania, and watched men bloat and die in the poisonous jungles of the western shores. I have broke blades with the Norscans when the very skies screamed with fire, and I saw-the rat men whisperers slaughter a city in a single night. But nothing I have seen compares to the nightmares that slept beneath the sand of that gods-forsaken realm.

~ Sargas Redmantle, Warlock of the Free Companies of Remas.[1]
