Designing the Clock Adventure: Part 4.25 The Adversaries

The weekend post saw me detailing the Time God finally.  I like his make up as a Gnomish tinkerer.  Gnomes rarely get the exposure they are due and who else would you expect to see in the heart of a clock mechanism anyway!  Today I move on to detail the major enemy and his eidolon (yes, he is a summoner) that have come to the clock temple and are causing the issues that the players are experiencing.

Jactents Gale Hellfire Summoner and his Eidolon Kerrathuul

Jactents Gale is a summoner who was born as a result of a deal with a contract devil.  The contract devil took the first born child of a worshipper of Asmodeus.  The child was taken and reared by the Contract Devil who had knowledge of the time god.  In this he saw an opportunity to strike at the heart of the abyss but knew that the temple itself was well protected against Devil incursion.  With a human under their control she saw the opportunity to be able to infiltrate the temple and cease time in the abyss effectively destroying the war that has raged for all of eternity.

Jactents was provided an Eidolon that was cultivated especially from the extra-planar beings of the multiverse to have no infernal core but completely supported the devils position.  Finally, the contract devil who lived on the material plane in human disguise to raise Jactents paid the final price to bring about the chain of events that were required to push Jactents to attempt this work.

Jactents for all intents and purposes never knew of the true nature of his mother.  Since he has started this journey he has begun to suspect that she was more than she first appeared but a child never questions that which is closest to them.  He was fifteen years of age when he saw demons of all shapes and sizes rush from a portal and tear his mother to pieces.  His mother had taught him all about demons and strongly warded their home from them and they could not enter the house.

He swore then and there that he would destroy the demons personally and set out on a quest to do so.  As he packed away his mothers things he came across some journals of material she had studied.  Weaknesses that could be exploited in a forgotten gods temple.  A complete map of what would be required to complete the task had been set out for him.  Jactents was at this stage a Devil worshipper (taught to him by his mother) and the first thing that he knew he would have to do to even have a chance at success was to become greater than a human can be.  He needed to become a mythic creature.

He began to modify his form as he grew so that his body was a temple for the infernal worship he modelled.  He slew an angel and captured its soul to distill an essence that granted him his mythic status and he began to follow the remainder of his plan.  Amongst his research though Jactents found a piece of information that his mother never did.  he found out how to disable the protections from devils entering the temple and he improved on his mothers plan.  He would at first enter the temple and remove these protections.  From there he would call to his companions, a group of devils to join him and storm the temple.  They would capture this god and force him to reveal the final secrets on how to lock time down in the abyss.

Jactents only trusts his Eidolon completely and knows with the nature of devils that they will seek to usurp him through their negotiations.  He refuses to sign any deals or negotiate on anything that any devil suggests.  The attack is done his way or no way at all.  Unfortunately this means his plan is relatively simplistic and his forces have made it in to the temple and caused many complications for the God but they are far from complete when the PC’s arrive to find out what the problems are…

The rest of this post is dedicated to Jactents and Kerrathuul’s stat blocks created for Pathfinder, inclusive of the Mythic Adventure rules.  At the bottom of the page is the legalese for Hero Lab (my suggested character generator) and also the legalese for the image I have used for Jactents.  Let me know in the comments what you think and keep rolling!
