Good evening my gruesome guests and welcome to week 9 of our Into the Black Tides Tuesdays! It’s that time of the year where the sun is setting by the time we get off work, and all the creepy creatures are spending more time outdoors. Just the other day I saw a Vampire flag down a taxi in front of a blood bank.
This week we’re going to be taking a look at the silwrap race – which is sort of like a destoka if you wrapped them up in toilet paper to look like a makeshift mummy; Except, with cloth instead of toilet paper. You get the idea.
Don’t let their appearance fool you, the Silwrap are actually a very friendly and humble race – often times going out of their way to compliment passing adventurers and asking to tag along in their journey. These mummified do-gooders make great traveling companions due to their positive energy and good-natured spirit! Plus, they can transform into sand, which means they can fit conveniently in any size carrying case.
The silwrap also make for some nifty natural healers when out in the field. They’re able to shoot their wrappings from their arms and cover a friendly. Then, they channel Astral into the injured person and heal them. This also works against enemies, because the silwrap’s bindings are tough and difficult to break free from. So, the silwrap can bind enemies in place to take a good pummeling from your allies!
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
On top of all the cool abilities that the silwrap gain naturally, by far their crowning achievement is their piercing eyes. These eyes, while extremely sensitive to even dim lights, allow the silwrap to see in complete darkness as if it were normal light. This means that in the daylight, the silwrap are forced to wear heavy tinted goggles in order to see. On the flip side, they make the perfect guard spirit for those long nights away from home!
So, the next time you’re treading into unknown territory and you feel the slithering of silken cloth against your ankle and see bright, piercing eyes staring at you off in the distance – try not to panic. It’s probably just a friendly ole Silwrap trying to bring you in closer for a hug. Boy do they love their hugs!
That’s a Wrap!
Unfortunately that’s all the time we have this week, but make sure you check back next week for the next edition of our Into the Black Tides Tuesdays! Don’t be too upset, it’s only 7 days away!
Until next time, my Franken-Friends,
