Legend: Cults of Sheoloth – The Dark Mother

By on 7 March 2014

The world below is a vast and complex place. Buried beneath layers of dangerous tunnels, caverns and labyrinths the likes of which the common folk have never seen, are cities of the dark elves layered with intrigue and danger. One such city is that of Sheoloth, also known as the Sprawling City, and the central power base of these dangerous and malign elves. However, what really drives the city and many of the dark elves, are the cults that have been part of life in the city for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

The Dark Mother, a powerful being from another world and another time, makes sure her people are restless and always striving to better themselves through ritual, divine right and murder, mayhem and debauchery. The life of a dark elf can be full of pleasure and desire. It can also be short, brutal and end at the blade of a priestess.

Her power stretches forth like a malignant shadow, leeching into the lives of dark elf and non-dark elf alike. It is her goal to make her people the strongest race imaginable, cutting the wheat from the chaff with complex plots and sub-plots as the countless ages roll on.

For the first time, the secrets of this cult are laid bare and the day-to-day life of her cult members exposed, along with a wealth of new information. This is the first of several cult books that will open the secrets of Sheoloth and shine new light on the dark elves and their religious orders.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
