Need an infiltrator as member of your crew? The more the scarier!

Introducing the Swarm, An arcane critter specialist

What’s in the box? Some things go bump in the night, others crawl along the cobblestones and creep between woodwork with only the faintest noise. One may have glided in unnoticed and be currently clinging to the wall of this very room. Doskvol pests can be frightening, but these are macabre arcane vermin with conscious ill intent.

When you play a Swarm, you earn xp when you address a challenge with infiltration or fright. Select a type of creature that would fit within a single average shoebox. Two will serve as your undead zombie-like ghosts (physical form) and the volume of which could be fit into three shoboxes will serve as your spirit-ghost (incorporeal) swarm to unleash. You share a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with your usual creatures that’s beyond words.

What’s in the box?! Fleas? Bees? Spiders? Bats? Frogs? Chihuahuas? Cats? Did you find them? Did you create them in a ritual? Did they summon you? Who’s controlling who?
