Commission for Ungod & Bash Chelik, a little sneak peek of their new quest & story characters.
"Nightmarish amalgam of broken dreams and fears took form of a crooked, old man. As broken as wishes, wants and passions that made him but with the will that drove those same things intact, this abomination wanders the Dream in search of redeemer or any trace of happiness. His disfigured form is shrouded in palpable darkness but some features are still visible. You feel when you look upon him as a child that stares into the dark and this figure is the lord of that darkness. He is hunched over his bone-like cane. He moves slowly, methodically, with singular purpose in his mind. His left leg is broken in ankle. He drags it over the dirt, mountains and shores with same conviction. Tap-tap-wsshh. Tap-tap-wsshh. His steps bring you fear, it is your leg that hurts now, it your leg that is broken! You crawl back into your hideout, have you been seen? No... Luckily. Afraid but curious, you dare yourself to look again and this time only peek with you head. Yes, he is still there. Rags over his back were made of sparky little faces that belonged to once happy children. They move, those faces, as if they want to smile... or scream. You can see the gleam of a shard-like object under them. But it is the face of a Shard collector that brings the horror, it the face that brings the curse! Far from being demonic or even ugly, that is the face of caring grandfather who looks after you when you fall asleep. Yes... There is nothing to fear here. You were silly to believe such fairy tales about crooked old man who steals your spirit. Relieved, you push yourself up to see him better... but he is not there anymore. Fear instantly floods your heart as you realized your mistake. Silence fall over the world except for strange sounds that were coming from inside the cave you were hiding. Tap-tap-wsshh...tap-tap-wsshh..."
