The Dark Entity
A creature from another world, it feeds on the life force of other leaving them as husks.
Its up to you to decide the origin of the creature, picks what suits your story best. The adventure only calls for something evil or twisted:
- The shadow of a fallen god
- A tortured soul, new returned as a revenant seeking revenge
- A demon sent forth to gather essence and then to use this essence to tear open a path for an army of its kind
They should have fearsome powers. The mummified bodies scattered throughout the city are the result of its hunger and not the result of the city being turned into a tomb.
Possible abilities, based on how scary you wish this creature to be:
- Level drain (a golden oldie that will lose you friends) – If this creature wounds a character it steals a level from them and adds it to itself
- Life drain – Any damage done to a character is turned into hit points for the entity
- Possession – This will give it the power to disrupt parties, move without causing alarm and perhaps forward it plans
