Behold the death of your world. There, cresting the horizon. Yes, that faint body is he, and he comes for me . . . for us all. Rejoice, for the end is near, and all life, all pain, all suffering shall be silenced in the perfect eternity of undeath.

~ Caira Xasten


A primordial force, Atropus once was an entity in the primeval void that existence sprung from. In order for the multiverse to take shape there must be an act of death so that other life is created. With this being's death sprung the Gods who shaped reality. However this did not fully kill Atropus, who instead became the afterbirth of creation. The antithesis of the gods, Atropus draws its power from the infinite void of the Negative Energy plane. Atropus' goal is to undo its first and greatest mistake. It moves around the universe, destroying everything in its path until it eventually destroys all mortal life therefore erasing the gods, and so itself, from the multiverse.

Sign: Restless Dead

Atropus’s presence in the sky causes the dead to rise from their graves.

Faint: Necromancy spells and spell-like abilities are cast at +2 caster level. Whenever a living creature dies, a 20% chance exists that it will spontaneously rise as a zombie in 1d4 rounds.

Moderate: As faint, but the chance of spontaneous animation increases to 40%. In addition, the entire campaign setting is affected as if by a desecratespell. Casting consecrateremoves this effect in the spell’s area until its duration expires.

Strong: As moderate, but the chance of spontaneous animation increases to 80%. Even creatures that died before this sign manifested begin to rise as skeletons or zombies, depending on the condition of their corpses. In addition, the campaign setting is affected as if by an unhallowspell. Casting hallowremoves this effect in the spell’s area. All conjuration (healing) spells and similar spell-like abilities are impeded, meaning that a caster must succeed on a Spellcraft check (DC 20 + the level of the spell) or lose the spell or spell slot without effect.
