The Path of the Adversary

The Adversary was worshipped for a millennia before his true power took shape. Walking among his worshippers he created abominations in his image, and gathered every evil thing to his banner. He may be bound now, but his call still rises from the darkness. The Adversary's beckoning call festers like an infection in the hearts of the wicked. 

The Path of the Adversary seeks to unbind the twisted god. The villainous creatures scramble to gain the dark god's favor, that when the world is unmade they will hold seats of power in the next world: an evil place, shaped by the Adversary himself.


Villains of the Adversary

 

The Pig Men

Formed centuries ago by the dark will of the Adversary, the Pig Men possess a cruel mockery of intelligence. In ages past, the Pigs were organized into vast armies that conquered powerful kingdoms. Like so many monstrous creations, the Pigs were abandoned after the world was destroyed. These twisted creatures now gather in feral tribes and war bands that survive by foraging in the vast ruins that cover our broken world.

These fierce warriors crave nothing more than destruction and snacks. Our fortified farmsteads and frontier outposts are under constant threat of Pig raiders. The allure of a merchant caravan is too great for any Pig to resist. Smashing open boxes to reveal the treats hidden inside is the greatest pleasure a Pig can experience. Survivors of these raids often describe the ecstatic squeals and tears of joy as they discover the contents of each package.

The Pig menace has been akin to bad weather: a harsh reality that destroys crops and kills the unwary. But since the Call of the Adversary the pigs have become more organized and bold than before. These foul creatures are an ever present danger, and as common as weeds.


Dark Wanderers

Something evil has been spotted in the wilderness. The Lone Guard Rangers have brought reports of unknown beings. They appear to be some mixture of man and beasts. 

Some claim these Dark Wanderers have been rousing the Pig Men, and may be heralds of a darker truth.
