Gloom Boxes

Here's an idea I wrote for Shadowfell, could work with Hades or the Plane of Shadow:

The Gloom Boxes: The Gloom Boxes are a collective term for the jails, asylums, and most unfortunately orphanages and refugee camps that simultaneously exist in the world and in the emotionally draining glooms of the Shadowfell. Designed to make the charges within their confines more tractable, many of these facilities are now haunted ruins left in disrepair.

Bel Aloth

Zimrazim's picture

Strangely enough, one of the sobriquets associated with Bel Aloth is ‘the Serene One.’ This ultroloth has not once – at least, not any time in recent history or recalled memory – displayed any sign of strong anger, fear, hatred, or any other powerful emotion.
