Ladybird of the Heavens

Once a year on High Summer the Ladybird of the Heavens descend from above to land in the Culminister Wastelands. Like a vessel from the space beyond, her majestic grace penetrates the sky and the troposphere to rest her black body and flap her ruby wings in the wasteland heat. It can be seen from far, of course, when this yet of deep red singles down. It is a spectacle that attracts sentient beings from around the globe.

The Ladybird of the Heavens is returning each High Summer on the exact same time, it has never failed to do so. What it is, however, or why it comes is unknown. Much due to the location of where the Ladybird of the Heavens descends. The Culminister Wastelands is a huge, perhaps gargantuan, piece of land made up of dry sand. It is so dry it does not even classify as a dessert. Because of this the place is never traversed and the life that inhabits the area, if there indeed is any life, is also unknown.

The Ladybird of the Heavens is, so, an unknown yet, or perhaps therefore, spectacular event. The event stretches over three days upon which it ascends to the heavens again, not to be seen for another year.

Monster: Gargoyle

Gargoyle

A gargoyle is a grotesque made out of magical stone that to others seems to be alive. It usually has wings and two horns on its head even though they look friendly to most people.

It is alive but in another sense than humans. Their body and mind are one in the shape and is embedded and dependant on the magical stone material. Removing a body part from a gargoyle means that you are also removing a part of its mind. However, there is no universal map for which part of the body that represents which part of the mind.

Gargoyle’s are usually human creations and are kept as companions and pets. However, only someone very versed in the art of Magic would be able to create one.
