The Arzhela Campaign
The Vynysja are a clan of mutated and deformed witches who have inhabited the ancient tower at the heart of Arzhela for all known history. The Vynysja are sure to let others know that the tower is not theirs, and neither are the artifacts that they continually dredge up from its depths.
The Vynysja were an integral part in the rise of the Sacred Circle of Six to power. It was because of deals between these witches and the wizards that the Circle was able to accumulate the large storehouse of ancient technology that was crucial to their power. While that storehouse was destroyed by Arslahan in his rise to power, the Vynysja continue to find old powers hidden beneath their tower.
Most residents of Arzhela fear the Vynysja not only because of their history with the Circle but because of the fact that the screams of the witches emanate constantly from within the tower, while the sick and dying gather at its base, called the Sjuk, in the hope that some ancient power of the witches will save them. And those few who have entered the tower describe something even worse than the witches themselves: strange creatures the witches call Daimons who sheathe themselves in voluminous and tattered wrappings, stand over eight feet tall, and stand at the shoulders of the witches only to write on strange parchment when the witches fall to the ground screaming with visions of absolute horror and destruction.
