Morktober prompts for Week 5

29: Gloves

Claws of the Wendigo

At first glance, these appear to be ordinary gloves, but when worn, the fingers elongate, turning into razor-sharp talons. When its wearer takes a life, an irresistible compulsion to devour the fallen ensues.

+2 bonus to unarmed strikes. You may consume the corpse of your enemy to retain 1d6 hit points. Each time you benefit from the glove’s power, roll a d6. On a 1 you are overtaken by a feral hunger, attacking friend and foe alike until sated or restrained.

30: Hunger

The Echoing Abyss

Lost amidst a cracked deserted waste lies the entrance to this pit. Its depths are filled with dense, otherworldly mists that echo with the whispers of countless souls. Stories of relics from an ancient cult have drawn many into the depths to find fortune or doom.

Spectral entities drift and float, drawn to the warmth of life, hoping to consume it and end their unending torment. At the pit’s heart is said to be an ancient altar, a monument to a god whose name has been erased by time. Some seek to rediscover its power, while the pit’s denizens seek only to satiate their hunger.

31: Pumpkins

The Gourdgraves

Where a graveyard once stood, nature has claimed back the land. By day, tombstones jut out from between thick vines and pumpkins. Come night, the land remembers the souls buried beneath these leafy tendrils.

Fuelled by the essence of the deceased, the pumpkins sprout gaping maws reveal rows of jagged teeth to consume the living. The souls trapped in the soil seek their vengeance through these nightmarish gourds. Those who venture into the Gourdgraves after dusk are likely to become yet another spirit to fuel the cycle of harvest and horror.
