Legends and Lore

With an Arcana or History check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Titans are semi-divine creatures from the dawn of time.

DC 15 The literal children of gods, empyrean titans are mighty warriors and powerful spellcasters. Their wounds heal with supernatural speed.

DC 20 Eons ago, King Fomor and his many degenerate children were banished to the Dreaming. Each fomorian has a bulging eye that is both the source of their magic and their greatest vulnerability.


Empyreans are godlike beings that stand 50 feet tall in their true forms, though they can take on humanoid stature to mingle with mortals. Their divine strength, combined with mortal will and foibles, make them unpredictable and dangerous. The flaws of even a well-intentioned empyrean are magnified by its power. 

Each empyrean bears the mark of the god that gave it life. The offspring of a storm god might bear a weapon that crackles with electricity, while the child of a nature god might leave footprints that burst with flowers and tree shoots. An empyrean’s innate spell list might also vary depending on its parentage.


Material Plane Empyrean Behavior

1 Sitting on a throne, staring at beautifully gilded prison walls, longing for distraction

2 In a rage, hammering futilely on an indestructible stone door

3 Summoning and dismissing illusions of worshipful mortals, magnificent architecture, and forgiving parents

4 Escaped from its prison and on its way to reclaim its power 

Planar Traveler Empyrean Behavior

1 Dictating a message to a ball of light, which then races off; several more balls of light wait patiently to receive messages

2 Looking for battle with opponents of equal power

3 On a holy quest

4 Holding a feast, festival, or dance for locals


Some empyreans maintain a semblance of rulership within dungeon prisons, while others wander in exile far from the Material Plane. Fomorians and their ilk inhabit underground palaces in the Dreaming.
