Exploits in Calada
Around a century ago, a massive ancient cosmic being appeared, changing everything. It terrorized the realm, ravaging the landscape, bellowing smoke into the sky and devouring all living things it could find on the surface.
As word of the monstrous creature spread, heroes travelled from far and wide to try to slay or expel the beast. Any who fought failed and were consumed.
The being reigned in terror until one day when for reasons unknown the moon eclipsed the sun and the skies burned with bright purple ether. The creature ignited and fell from the sky, crashing down and dissolving into grey ash which scarred the earth to form the blighted Greylands to the North.
Is documented to some extent in the book The Hierophant & Other Cosmic Beings. The author, Jaklynn Iddergo, describes The Hierophant as a deity of chaos and evolution from another time and place. She believed that it knew it was reaching the end of its lifecycle, so it traversed timespace to arrive in Calada where it would briefly feast and sow its seed through the mutations that developed in Calada’s creatures. Eventually, one mutated creature may reassume a suitable form for it to rise again to soar through the cosmos.
