Age of Aether Dev Blog #2: Enemies and Rewards

Greetings, adventurers! We're back with an update on our upcoming dark fantasy-themed D&D 5e adventure. Our team has been hard at work crafting the narrative. Our current focus is visuals for the items and adversaries you will come across through the course of the journey. Today, we're going to give you a sneak peek.

Talaithe Boar Talaithe boars are even larger and fiercer than their mainland cousins, sporting sharp tusks and thick, scaly hides, and posing a tangible threat to travellers. However, there is more to this boar’s behaviour than compulsion of instinct. Its movements are almost mechanically deliberate, and its gaze is intense with animosity. What could be driving these creatures to act with such calculated hostility?

Revived Warrior Though they are under the same curse, it has affected them to various degrees. For some the experience of inhabiting their own dead bodies has proven to be traumatic beyond all repair; some still retain willpower and hope; some are only dimly aware of what is happening and dwell in comforting memories of the past. Whose command is this discordant warband under?

Amulet of Refined Balance As you notice faint yellow light spilling out of the boar's maw, you find the crystal, lodged firmly in its gum. A warm feeling of safety and comfort rises within you: a protective charm, no doubt. Ironically, it might have been shielding the very boar that mauled its original owner. How did it end up there?

We can't wait for you to find answers to these questions as your characters embark on what was supposed to be a run-of-the-mill delivery. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to shape this adventure.
