Warlock’s Journal May contest
We are once again visited by the Warlock’s Journal, the travelling book of wonderous knowledge.
This time the Warlock’s Journal is focused on very specific and mysterious topic, True Names!
It is known, that throughout the ages, the eons and the multiverse there has always been one universal truth which seems to have unparallelled powers of domnation, the True Name!
But the Journal is apparently focussing it’s attention on a specific example in history where a beings true name was discovered and used to subdue and force it’s wearer. It seems it is keen on knowing where the name had its origin, how it was hidden and how it was discovered. Which are questions that some of our greatest minds have been trying to answer for millennia, will the Journal succeede where they have failed?
To enter the May contest of the Warlock’s Journal, you must create a True Name entry for the Journal.
The entity in question is the Nel’dratha Queen
The Nel’Dratha Queen was once a dragon mount & familiar of a powerful wizard. She transcended her immortal form as dragon and turned into an undead shadow dragon, over time she had followers who wanted to become what she was. Eventually she became a demigod and these days, it is rumoured that she is actually a living plane of existance. A living Necropolis.
Her True Name was discovered by the Shadow Council’s proxies and they used it to force a location from her.
for more information about the Shadow Council and it’s proxies, read the Shadow Council Essential Origin stories.
