Tales of the Fortune's Favored
Several years ago, the warlock Armistan the Unseen travelled to the haunted city of Rathmatal in eastern Narfell on a quest for arcane power. He found it in the form of a dark ritual, spoken of in only the most profane grimoires and obscurest of texts. This ritual, known as the Ritual of Bonding, summons a fiendish entity and binds its essence to the summoner’s skin, granting him the qualities of a fiend.
“The Skin” is just such an entity. It has bonded with Armistan’s body and has perverted and mutated him both physically and mentally. The skin delights in taunting Armistan, chiding him for his weaknesses and telling him of all the horrors that await him in the Abyss. Armistan thinks he can withstand the skin’s influence, but as the bond between them grows stronger, the border that separates them becomes hazier.
