Monsters of Eberron – Daelkyr, Denizen of Xoriat

Xoriat, it’s kind of like that.

If you thought their creations were scary, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!  The terrifying masters of Xoriat are a seemingly all powerful alien force.  For ages, they’ve been behind much of the tension and turmoil in Eberron.  Some suspect that they control the realm best known in the multiverse as the “Far Realm.”  In fact, some scholars think it to be the very same plane as Xoriat.  No matter the truth, this fleshcrafting menace has goals still mostly unknown to everyone else.  For all we know, the denizens that visit the material plane could just be foot soldiers…  The worst could be yet to come!  Perhaps even more disgusting mutants and experiments await those unfortunate enough to get too close to their clutches.  And that’s not the most disturbing things about the Daelkyr.  The most disturbing part is they look like us!  Or should I say, WE look like THEM!

Is this a Daelkyr lord or one of their warriors that slipped through reality?  You decide!  Either way, get ready to lose A LOT OF SANITY!
