The Venerable Lord Kroak

The Venerable Lord Kroak is a long-dead and mummified Slann[1a][2] of the First City, Itza.

Overview

Plaques recording the history of the Slann relate that Lord Kroak was present at the birth of the world and therefore fated to be present at its end. Offerings and prayers are devoted to this venerable Slann, and all who look into his inlaid eyes can sense the power still residing there. [1a]

History

Lord Kroak is said to have been the first Slann that was spawned in the world, the most powerful of the First Spawning and the most revered of all the Relic Priests. [2a] He was taught by the Old Ones, with the secrets of unwinding time unveiled by Potec and how to use the Winds of Magic by Tepok. [3a]

An integral part of the Old Ones' Great Plan, his spirit stubbornly refused to leave this plane of existence, even after his body was slain by a score of Greater Daemons during the defence of Itza, the first temple-city. [2a]

The body was retrieved and returned to its resting place in Itza, sheathed in gold and holy bindings. It has been carried into battle many times, humbling all those in his presence. When at peace, many offerings are made to him as they are to Sotek and the toher Old Ones. [2a]

Magic

The spirit of Lord Kroak can use his immensely powerful telepathy to cast spells through willing supplicants. For a Skink Priest this is a experience of holy significance and a great honour. [2a]

  • Deliverance of Itza: The final spell invoked by Lord Kroak which still can eminate from his mummified husk, banishing Daemons and the undead. [3a]

Students

Amongst his students was Lord Mazdamundi. [3b]
