Campaign Design - The Lords of Hell: Sirchade


That Which Lurks; The Many-Eyed Lord; Demon Lord of Slime, Fungus, and Rot

Alignment: Chaotic Evil.
Domains: Blight, DecayRot, Slime, Suffering, Thirst.
Summon Monster: Sirchade's clerics and favored souls can summon corrupted and ooze creatures using summon monster spells.
Symbol: A jaw bone dissolving in a pool of slime.
Favored Weapon: None.

The appearance of this demon lord is without a doubt the most disgusting and loathsome of all creatures. Sirchade is foul and nauseating, dripping caustic secretions and oozing noisome slime and acid. The creature is covered with thousands of eyes of every shape and size that glare balefully from every part of the demonic being. Sirchade has no set form or structure, and can spread itself into a vast pool of slime, or raise itself up into a towering column of vile ordure. Whatever shape it takes, Sirchade is always composed of a mass of blackish greens, foul browns and yellows, and sickly grays and purples.

Unlike many other Demon Lords, Sirchade has no goals, plans, or schemes other than to simply destroy and consume everything it encounters. In the War in Heaven, Sirchade reveled in the opportunity for unrestrained destruction spreading its acidic secretions across the battlefield, but was eventually overcome by Forseti’s might and power and forced to retreat into the abyss of Hell, an insult that has earned Forseti the demon lord’s undying hatred. After the War in Heaven, Woda trapped the Lurking Lord in a pit with sides so steep that the liquefied demon is unable to escape.

Sirchade is reclusive and hates intrusion by any form of solid creature, but surrounds itself with all forms of slimes, jellies, and oozes. Even for a demon lord Sirchade has few worshipers or priests of any kind, but cruel and evil individuals sometimes call upon it anyway, since it is indiscriminate with regard to whom it aids. It is rarely called upon, however, for it always exacts a high price in repayment for its assistance.
