AH8595 Lords of Terror (1994)

Lords of Terror

The Cults of Dorastor

Lords of Terror is a RuneQuest Gloranthan campaign supplement. Complete cult
descriptions of seven chaotic cults (Primal Chaos, Malia, Bagog, Thed, Krjalk, Pocharngo and Krarsht) are illustrated through passages from “The Reminiscences of Paulis Longvale,” an epic saga of treachery, horror, and heroism in the great war between the Orlanthi and the chaotic minions of Ralzakark, enigmatic sovereign of Dorastor, the Land of Doom.

This companion volume to Dorastor: Land Of Doom is an essential reference for all Gloranthan campaigns.

Each cult description is accompanied by a major NPC – elaborate, fully-detailed examples of the fertile excesses of chaos worshipers – and several scenario schemes for adapting these grotesque antagonists to your campaign.

Savor the unappetizing new rules for disease, tainted spirits, and chaotic features. Now the Servants of Chaos are more noisome and repulsive than ever before! Learn the lurid mysteries of the chaos cults exposed in numerous delicious tracts and testaments – each revealing Secrets That Man Was Not Meant
to Know.
