Pirates of the Mytalein - 2020
Why is it called: Pirates of the Mytalein?
The 19th September is the International Talk like a Pirate Day.
So it had to be Pirate themed.
Scouring through the rule book, there is an island called Mytalein, so the pun on Pirates of the Caribbean was born Pirates of the Mytalein.
The Reaper - Davy Jones
Each person may take for free the following Living Legend character as part of their main army: The Reaper does not use one of your Hero, War Engine or Monster Slots.
Death is inevitable, and therefore, The Reaper is not represented as purely evil. Death is not choosing a time, place or years. The Reapers job is to escort the dead to the underworld. The Reaper pulls the souls out of the body, and guides them through the journey of the afterlife.
The angel of death appears to the dying to take out their souls. The sinners' souls are extracted in a most painful way while the righteous are treated easily.
The Reapers appearance depends on the person's deed and actions, with those that did good seeing a beautiful being, and those that did wrong seeing a horrific monster. The Reaper has taken many forms including: A bearded and winged man; a young boy, a spectral figure portending death, a tall, haggard figure with a wide hat and long white hair, a skeleton with a revolving head who sees everyone, everywhere, a defleshed body and with jaw agape to swallow the stars during the day, an old woman or plague hag. The Reaper has been seen by different races in either a Black or a White robe.
Davy Jones is the fiend that presides over all the spirits of the deep, and is often seen in various shapes, perching among the rigging on the eve of hurricanes, ship-wrecks, and other disasters to which sea-faring life is exposed, warning the devoted wretch of death and woe.
Davy Jones ferries those drowned to the afterlife, his locker a purgatory place of punishment for any slights performed in life.
The Reaper is ethereal and is a difficult to target in melee or range (Ensnare and Stealthy).
