A Savage Barbarian
We kick off with the Barbarian, Za Khor…
“The name Za Khor is his own infantile interpretation of his actual name, but this is lost to his memory. He is a legendary survivor, having been able to intuitively communicate with many of the beasts from the Core. Not all, of course, but he has been known to influence the behaviour of even some great reptiles for a short while.
His arrival and keening call often heralds defections throughout the tribes of the Core, compelled as they seem, to be aiding Za Khor in some unknown cause.”
A neat model – everyone loves adding a musclebound Barbarian to their collection every so often. I like the idea that he could control the beasts of the Core and bring them into battle alongside him.
Next up we have one of those who have strayed into this world from above with Annalisse Kirchner.
“A prominent member of a research expedition to the Core, she is the sole survivor of the disasterous and ill fated project. She has given up all academic interest in the environment, currently seen waving a revolver at any inhabitant who may help her escape the nightmare she has found herself in.”
She certainly appears to be the main female lead in this adventure. While her choice of attire probably isn’t the most useful for her current predicament she looks like she could handle herself against the native population.
Wild Warrior Woman
We’re now checking out the Amazonian Harranna Of Lost Avisha.
“There are numerous stories attributed to her and some even be true. She is a staunch ally of Za Khor but is often seen alone. She prides herself in besting any leader of any faction through warlike skills and animal cunning.
She may relentlessly track and hunt down any who she deems has slighted her, taking swift and Savage retribution for their unwitting crimes.
She has a collection of grisly trophies from a thousand challenges, which serve to mark out her territory in her jungle home in the ruined city of Avisha.”
Quite the crazy warrior woman who seems like she’d put Za Khor to shame if it ever came to a straight up fight. It also helps build an interesting narrative already and I would like to delve deeper into this world.
Finishing things off we have the villain of the piece, Herr Klee.
“Once again, he is the only survivor, sacrificing his loyal guard one by one to terrible lizard beasts, Terror Gulls, magma flows, earthquakes and numerous other threats all to save his own skin.
He has been lucky so far, but the heat and hallucinatory fumes of giant puffball mushrooms have driven him half mad and he may be seen madly pawing the air, wafting away imaginary threats.
He clutches a priceless sunstone from an ancient temple, but he is ignorant as to how to harness it’s power. Instead, he indiscriminately fires his Luger at moving targets in his path. Who knows how much ammunition he has left?”
Quite the strange bad guy! It seems like he fits the mould of most Hollywood villains in that he has been seeking power and gone mad in the process.
