Star Pact

The night sky reveals a world that is alien to most. The black canvas sparkles with pin points of light. The pactwrought that reaches out to these alien landscape touches upon the consciousness of the powerful entities that make their home in the vast depths of the sky. They hear the pactwrought’s calls and answer. Of all the chosen Pacts this one by far is the most enigmatic. These entities maybe beyond understanding but communicate their whims through their chosen. 

Connecting to these entities is no easy experience. Strange visions of maddening landscapes infiltrate your nights. Granted, you some­times hear strange atonal music when no one else can. But it’s all manageable. You know you are up to the task of retaining hold of your sanity. You know the signs to watch. Too much star-gazing. Too much talking to yourself. Too much fantasizing about what Gibbeth really looks like despite the warnings in that dusty old tome not to dwell overmuch, even in thought, on this enigmatic entity. 

A lesser mind could falter and crack under the truths to which you are privy and under the strains of temptation you forego. But you are master of your own mind. You are confident that you can make use of the power the stars grant without falling victim to the madness that lurks behind their radiant light. You studied the limitless abysses and the bright points of enigmatic light that hang between them. You lis tened to the baffling disordered sounds that emerged from the simple astronomical lenses you used for your study. You learned the stars were not the innocent lamps above the world that most assumed. Despite this unsettling knowledge, you continued your study.

Revelations of Melech 
An ancient texts scribed by a powerful Archmage who studied the realms of the stars. In it he describes ten distinct entities he came in contact with over the 500 years he observed the heavens. It is rumored that towards the end of his life Melech became insane and raved about the darkness beyond. His works were locked away deemed too dangerous. Only recently has this collection of tomes come to light and yet is barley decipherable. 

The following are the ten entities Melech describes. 

Acamar: Acamar is a corpse star whose motions and behemoth size send celestial objects that draw too close spiraling to their doom. 

Caiphon: This purple star is usually on the horizon. It has the guise of a helpful guide star, but sometimes betrays those who rely upon it. 

Delban: An ice-white star often visible only during winter, Delban might surprise the star-gazer with an impromptu flare during any season. 

Gibbeth: Better not to write or think overlong on this greenish point in the sky. 

Hadar: Hadar is the extinguished cinder of a star lurking within the cloaking nebula of Ihbar. 

Ihbar: A dark nebula between stars, Ihbar is slowly expanding and eating the light of neighboring constellations. 

Khirad: A piercing blue star, Khirad’s radiance sometimes reveals secrets and gruesome insights. 

Nihal: Nihal is a reddish star that writhes around the position it should hold in the heavens. 

Ulban: Ulban’s blue-white light disrupts cognition and the ability to recognize danger. 

Zhudun: Another corpse star, Zhudun is his torically described as shining a baleful light over the Ruined Realm of Cendriane in the Feywild before its fall.
