Hades, the Land of the Dead, is the central focus of an ancient
religion deep underground in
the Eastlands. The tenets of this
religion state that trespassers in the temple and breakers of the
commandments will be sent to the Land of the Dead. Adventurers in
the region have described Hades as a desolation, with one corner
filled with a pile of mangled bodies, the last remains of less
fortunate adventurers. These lost souls cry with thousands of
voices lamenting a hideous fate. The gateway to Hades, inscribed
with the words "Abandon every hope all ye who enter here!" was
once guarded by evil spirits and wraithes. However, the adventurer who would become the Second
Dungeon Master used the power
of the local religion to call upon an unearthly force to exorcise
the spirits, allowing anyone free access to the Land of the Dead.
Helfax was a magician-philosopher, well-known for his opinions on
the Implementor legend. He proclaimed that, "A creation of this
kind is morally and logically indefensible, and the [Implementor]
theory is colossal claptrap and kludgery."
Helistar is an old and powerful member of the
Circle of Enchanters.
Although a skilled and experienced magic user, she is humorless
to the point of being grim. Despite this personality flaw,
Helistar was the most likely candidate to become the next
Guildmaster of the Circle, until the Jeearr incident.
Hellhound When you spot a hellhound, run in the other direction
as fast as you can! Hellhounds are fast, fierce, and capable of
devouring a human 12 times their size in 3.5 seconds. They normally inhabit burnt-out or enchanted woods and rarely venture
beyond their turf, even in pursuit of prey. Hellhounds are known
to inhabit forests near
Egreth and Gurth, and they are kept by
the Prevaricons and Veritassi, who keep them fed with unwanted
visitors. When Festeron was transformed into Witchville by
The Evil One,
a poodle named Alexis became a ravenous hellhound.
Holnac the Cynic is the only person known to despise
Dimithio of Borphee.
Saint Honko, the patron saint of people who play very odd musical
instruments, has a holiday in his honor on 31 Mage of each year.
Hoobly was a member of the Guild of Brewers in 966. He gave a
speech to the Final Conclave of Enchanters detailing the failure
of the magic that brews beer. One of the more volatile speakers
at the Conclave, his pronouncement that without magic there could
be no beer gave rise to a great concern. Some present that day
even went as far as to call Enchanters "traitors."
Hungus Part sheep, part hippopotamus, the hungus builds its nest
in jungle swamps such as the Miznia Jungle and other hot, squishy
places. Normally docile and eager to avoid conflict or activity
of any kind, the hungus is fiercely clannish, and will instantly
charge at anything that dares to threaten its kin.
