Titanspawn [Scarred Lands]

Scarred Lands

Greetings Adventurers!

Travis Legge, Scarred Lands Line Developer for Onyx Path Publishing, returning to share a bit of insight into the cast of creepy creatures you will be adding to your repulsive repertoires of fiends and foul monstrosities with the Expedition Scarred Lands expansion

In Scarn, the world of Scarred Lands, the term Titanspawn is commonly used to refer to creatures that were created by the titans. More specifically, Titanspawn are those who served the titans before and during the Divine War. Scholars of Scarn know that the titans are responsible for creating all life on Scarn, including the gods themselves, but most people on Scarn draw a firm distinction between the creatures who serve the gods and those who serve the titans. Titanspawn are often hideous and violent creatures created to feed the destructive appetites of their titanic masters. The Arcane Devourers, for example, were created by the titan Mesos, Sire of Sorcery. Their ability to eat spells is drawn from this connection. Other titanspawn, such as the Blood Reaper, a creature spawned from the blood of Mormo the Hag Queen, is a manifestation of the violence of her dismemberment, a violence it seeks to inflict on any creature it encounters.

Much to the horror of the divine races, there are still some among their number who worship the titans as well. The Druid of the Fallen Circle can be a member of any divine race who gains access to druidic magic from the worship of titans. This titan worship is feared and hated throughout Scarn, as the people of the Scarred Lands remember the terror of titanic supremacy. 

Titanspawn are among the greatest threats to the safety of Scarn. As the divine races seek to rebuild civilization in the wake of the titanswar, roving titanspawn attack fledgling settlements and nascent trade routes. Massive areas of land are corrupted by titanic influence, creating new titanspawn. This not only stands in the way of the divine races reclaiming and cleansing the land but threatens to spread the corruption of the titanspawn even further across the already damaged landscape.

When an adventurer stands in combat against titanspawn, they stand against the very destruction and disease that plagues these Scarred Lands!
