Way overdue, but here it is..the Infested of Nestorian!
Way back in January we asked for help in making NPCs for the Nestorian Infestation setting.
The response was overwhelming as #nestorianinfestedpopulation showed!
As my photo setup isn’t the best Helge got the honours and the result is a stunner!
There was a loud blast as of many beastial roars at once!
There was a harsh grating as of a thousand claws underneath!
The fiery walls of the Hive collapsed as the ground disappeared.
An outstreched arm caught Tobias’ hand as he fell, fainting, into the Abyss.
It was that of Nestorian.
The cultists had entered the Hive.
We where in the hands of our enemies.
I gasped for breath! There could be no doubt of the design of my tormentors — oh! Most unrelenting! Oh! Most demoniac of men! I shrank from the pulsing flesh to the centre of the cell. Amid the thought of the fiery destruction that impended, the idea of the coolness of the well came over my soul like balm. I rushed to its deadly brink. I threw my straining senses below.
Yet, for a wild moment, did my spirit refuse to comprehend the meaning of what I felt. At length it forced — it wrestled its way into my soul — it burned itself in upon my shuddering reason. — oh! For a voice to speak! — oh! Horror! — oh! Any horror but this! With a shriek, I rushed from the margin, and buried my face in my hands, weeping bitterly.
Who am I..
– Tobias, prior to the Infestation
Text is an excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Pit and the Pendolum” merged with parts of fluff that Christopher Buck sent along with his miniatures. Both are slightly modified to fit the context of the Nestorian Infestation setting.
