Warlock’s Apprentice: Amidst the Dust

Midgard’s Western Wastes are a wound that will never heal, festering in the wake of the Great Mage Wars. Fine dust chokes the blasted landscape, swirling across dunes, craters, and ruins held in the grip of deadly unpredictable magic. Empires lay buried in the wasteland’s dust, and beneath even those remains, echoes of lost Ankeshel …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Skaldholm Shadowsingers

All of the skalds from Skaldholm form a loose network of informants for the Master of Thyles, but there are whispers of a secret organization within the schools: skalds that are as proficient in the art of espionage as they are in poetry and song. Known as shadowsingers, they are artisans whose primary medium is …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Feast Halls of the Northlands

Among all the northern folk, the feast halls and the long halls are a gathering place for entire jarldoms, families, and clans. The enormous shield-hung rafters, the roaring fire pits, and the long benches and tables are unlike the more genteel dining and drinking halls of Dornig or the south. Beyond their warmth and sense …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Owls, Roses, and Thorns

Elvish courts have always been strange places—to mortals anyway. They are somewhat like royal courts among humans, but because of elvish and fey longevity, the fey courts are far more dominated by single figures and for much longer periods, and these factors invariably leave their mark across centuries, setting down quirks, customs, traditions, and arcane …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Recollections of the River Court

Yes, it’s true! I have travelled far up the rivers that flow through the Arbonesse—all the way to the River Court. There I was taken on a tour of the place before being seated for dinner with the king himself, that secret keeper, Ulorian the First! Here, sit, I will recall my time there for …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Spells from the Fire

These spells are suitable for a campaign that visits the City of Brass or that takes place in a setting where fire, heat, and the desert loom large, such as the Southlands. They’re geared toward wizards, but there’s no reason why sorcerers and warlocks—or even clerics and druids—can’t have access to them if you decide …

Warlock’s Apprentice: Bazaar of Ineffable Wonders

Author’s Note. Parts of this article are taken from the Nine Chthonic Papyri of Heknusret the Temerarious, former member of the Honorable Society of Portal Wizards, a secretive order of Nurian mages based in the city of Per-Anu who seek to control the mysterious Red Portals.

Warlock’s Apprentice: Jann of the Burnished City

The genies of the Elemental Planes keep slaves, but they also need servants—individuals powerful enough to run their petty citadels and elemental empires but not rise to become rivals to their power. These are the jann, beings made of multiple primal elements. A beautiful people of striking appearance and demeanor, they suffer the egos of …

Warlock’s Apprentice: On the Hunt

Bounty hunters are a diverse group, spanning a variety of personalities and skills. Some are brutes, choosing the life of the Champion (fighter) while other clever mercenary leaders prefer more tactical maneuvers.
