Things in the Dark
The Cult of Orcus
The Cult of Orcus is a new cult beginning in the lands of the Notis Empire. The cult was created when human explorers discovered a shrine in the forest to Orcus. They were instantly corrupted, and started growing the cult. They have clashed many times with the humans and smaller groups of mercenaries. Their ultimate goal is to bring Orcus back to this realm, which is difficult because the planes of the world are moving farther and farther away from each other, like galaxies in our universe. There are several groups of Cultists but if there was one leader it would have to be said to be Zekeelorev, as he controls the largest group of cultists. His enemies includes Lord Teylament as he has attacked his town many times, as well as the adventurers Ukrorth, Shauna, and Alki’lir.
The Cult of Orcus so far is yet to corrupt races other than humans, but if they are not stopped soon they most certainly will. The cultists, recently, have been combing the forest fighting constant wars with the other forest adventururers. They are looking for good places to bring their fell lord back to this world.
Dorsean and his ghouls have also started to break through the walls between dimensions. As of now a force of his ghouls has arrived int he shadowfell and are moving with due haste towards the Notis Empire.
