A demon of excessive pride, and tempter of mortals.
While exploring Atlas, one must keep their wits about them. All sorts of misfortunes can befall a careless traveler: Bloodthirsty bandits, crippling injuries, and, of course, Dragon attacks. Not all Dragons kill with fire and claws, however. Some attack with words. Oni is one such Dragon. More conniving than most, Oni tempts their victims with promises of power, wealth, and other desirables. Oni never delivers, however, and these bargains play out poorly for those who hear what they have to say. Just remember, if a Dragon ever offers you a deal, you’d be wise to turn it down.

Witch of the Wastes
Commands the souls of the Windblown Shroud's long-lost heroes.
Even the mightiest warriors of the Windblown Shroud fall in battle. The souls of these slain champions are ferried to the afterlife by Itzani. Able to shift between the realms of the living and the dead, Itzani watches over the deceased as they pass between worlds. Should Itzani need to protect themself or their spiritual charges, they can call upon the departed warriors’ abilities to aid Itzani in combat. With each fight among the living, Itzani better protects the dead.

The World Serpent
The world serpent winds through the canyons of the Frigid Narrows.
“Day 1: The academy sent me to investigate rumors of a new dragon species. After many weeks of travel, I’ve finally arrived on the coast of the Frigid Narrows. This should be a fine place to make camp.
Day 4: I spotted some of the locals lurking outside my camp last night. They wore thick pelts and carried heavy axes. I hope they don’t cause any trouble.
Day 9: Good news! I haven’t yet been eviscerated by a battle axe! Bad News! THERE’S NOTHING HERE! I haven’t seen any dragons whatsoever, let alone some fabled giant beast.
Day 13: I’m not sure what where the academy heard these rumors but I’m ready to go home! It’s cold. I’m almost out of food, and I think those barbarians might be coming back soon...
Day 15: I was packing up my camp this morning and I saw it! I can’t believe it! I was rolling up my tent when the this immense shadow passed over head. I thought it was a cloud at first! But it was the largest dragon I’ve ever seen! And its tail! It must have trailed by over a kilometer! I’m not sure where it was going but it didn’t seem to notice me at all. I have to get back to the academy. We’ll need a full research team to track down this magnificent creature!”
