Product Description

corpsehoundneg-copy.png

This is my second voyage to the dead planet of Trocaria.  It’s great fun exploring a world of one’s own making. I had just begun working on this particular piece when an old friend visited me in my studio.  His girlfriend was with him, and she decided right then and there that the piece was to be hers. My friend reserved it for her immediately.

 

The surface of the planet is pockmarked with what at first appear to be impact craters but are in actuality open graves. On Trocaria, there is no rest for the dead.  There is only servitude to a dark necromantic priest class or an endless struggle to hide from them.  The Shadow Priests employ corpse hounds for the purpose of extracting residual spirit energy from haunted burial grounds or tombs throughout the kingdom. These beasts of burden are in essence spiritual vessels capable of imparting the dead with the semblance of life by “exhaling “soul energy into them.

The corpse hound shown here looks very different from those found roaming in packs among the ancient ruins, battlefields and fens of Trocaria; many of these carrion creatures have been magically and surgically modified, fitted with body parts taken from some of the very corpses they have themselves reanimated.  They are harvesters of souls, controlled by a grim will and powerful spells.

The sacred temples of the Nis are powered by enslaved souls and ectoplasmic runoff from necromantic experiments. Priests and priestesses are themselves sustained by this power.

The body being reanimated here is to be taken back to the temple of the Nis and prepared as a bride for a Shadow Priest.
