Eshowdow3

  艾寿多Eshowdow(读作“eh-SHOE-doe”)是位半神力,在 乌塔欧Ubtao 利用自身的一部分创造出无数精魂之时,他于这位神祗的本质碎片中衍生而出。在被 楚尔特的创造者Creator of Chult 封印并埋入丛林地下很久之后,幽影巨人the Shadow Giant 最终转化为了一位独立的神祇,它吞噬着荣耀、勇气与高贵,潜伏于 楚尔特丛林the Jungle of Chult 的黑暗幽影之中。
Eshowdow (eh-SHOE-doe) is a demipower who evolved from a fragment of Ubtao's essence that was released when Ubtao created the myriad spirits of the jungle with fragments of himself. Long sup-pressed by the Creator of Chult and buried beneath the jungle floor, the Shadow Giant has been transformed into a god in his own right who feasts on the death and destruction of courage, honor, and nobility and stalks the dark shadows of the Jungle of Chult.

  约在1500年以前,在一场延续了近300年之久,同敌对的 泰博克西部族the Tabaxi 的血战中,艾寿部族the Eshowe(读作“eh-SHOE-ay”)将一种难以形容、巨大而恐怖的远古邪恶从某座位于丛林深处的山谷中释放出来。幽影巨人The Shadow Giant(艾寿部族将此名号赋予这团潜伏之阴暗)满怀着对乌塔欧的疯狂憎恨,迅速袭击了位于泰博克西领地心脏地带的伟大城市 麦兹罗城Mezro,并几乎彻底毁灭了它。当麦兹罗的保卫者们最终击退了他的冲击之后,幽影巨人转而袭击艾寿,几乎将他们彻底灭绝。泰博克西人将此黑暗精魂命名为艾寿多,或者说:“艾寿之影Shadow of the Eshowe”。
Fifteen hundred years ago, the Eshowe (eh-SHOE-ay) released a name-less, monstrous, ancient evil from a valley deep in the jungle during a bloody war with a rival tribe, the Tabaxi, that had already lasted nearly 300 years. The Shadow Giant, as the Eshowe named the lurking gloom, burned with hatred for Ubtao and immediately attacked the great city of Mezro in the heart of the Tabaxi lands, nearly destroying it. When the defenders of Mezro finally repulsed his onslaught, the Shadow Giant turned on the Es-howe in frustration, nearly wiping them out in a genocidai rampage. The Tabaxi named the dark spirit Eshowdow, or “Shadow of the Eshowe.”

  当狂暴的愤怒消褪之后,艾寿多撤退到了曾经遮蔽其诞生的黑暗之中,治愈自己的创伤、谋划如何复仇。在对泰博克西族进行了数个世纪之久的鬼祟偷袭之后,艾寿多终于意识到乌塔欧根本无法察觉到自己的出现——因为幽影巨人原本就是恐龙之神的影子,艾寿多可以丝毫不用顾及来自这位神祗的怒火为所欲为。但由于他的怯懦,这位 荣耀、勇气与高贵之吞噬者the Devourer of Honor, Courage, and Nobility 发现自己还是不敢从藏身的丛林深处现身。
His fury spent, Eshowdow retreated to the darkness which cloaked his birth to nurse his wounds and plot his revenge. In took Eshowdow centuries of furtive assaults against the Tabaxi to realize that Ubtao was incapable of perceiving Eshowdow, his own shadow, and that, as a result, Eshowdow could act without fear of divine retribution. Such was his cowardice, however, that the Devourer of Honor, Courage, and Nobility found himself in-capable of emerging from the jungle depths in which he hid.

  最终,幽影巨人从曾经骄傲自豪的艾寿部族后裔中征募了一支由畏缩怯懦的仆从组成的军队。他们的祖先曾经在这座“失落荣耀之谷Valley of Lost Honor”内释放出了艾寿多,而后来又在此地寻求庇护。在长达数个世纪的岁月里,艾寿人一直畏缩于幽影巨人的保护之下,这将他们永久地扭曲成了一种潜伏于幽影的种族,只能够感受到对乌塔欧与泰博克西的疯狂恨意。艾寿多小心谨慎地将他们的憎恨编织为一种颓废而堕落的宗教,从而增强自身的力量,为长久以来所预期的、同乌塔欧之间的决战做准备。艾寿多与他的追随者们花费了数十年的时间在楚尔特荒凉的西南部区域中积聚力量,准备重新挑起那场远古内战。
Eventually the Shadow Giant recruited an army of long-cowering ser-vants among the descendants of the once-proud Eshowe. Their ancestors had taken shelter in the same valley in which Eshowdow had been un- earthed, the Valley of Lost Honor, and centuries of cowering in the aegis of the Shadow Giant had permanently twisted them into a race of lurking shadows who could feel only hatred and who directed that animosity toward Ubtao and the Tabaxi. Eshowdow carefully twisted their hatred into a depraved cult whose veneration strengthened him for his long-anticipated battle against Ubtao. For decades Eshowdow and his followers have been gathering strength in the wild southwestern reaches of Chult in preparation for the resumption of the ancient civil war.

  在泰博克西族中,关于艾寿多的记忆早已模糊暗淡,这只很久以前的邪恶之物仅仅出现于传说与歌谣之中。泰博克西人普遍认为他仍旧潜行于麦兹罗附近的丛林之中,永不停歇地寻找着潜入这座传说之城的方法。而艾寿的后裔则视幽影巨人为解放者与复仇者,认为他终将摧毁可憎的乌塔欧及其追随者——泰博克西族。艾寿多花费了数百年的时间,狡诈而巧妙地地扭曲了他们的传说,使得艾寿后裔相信当年是乌塔欧、而不是他们的守护神几乎彻底毁灭了他们的部落。即使被告知其他观点的故事,也不会有哪个艾寿部族成员会接受。
Eshowdow is a dim memory among the Tabaxi, a long-ago evil remembered only in ancient tales and songs. He is reputed to still stalk the jungle around Mezro, endlessly seeking entrance into the fabled city. The descendants of the Eshowe view the Shadow Giant as a liberator and avenger who will destroy the hated Ubtao and his followers, the Tabaxi. Eshowdow has subtly twisted their legends over the centuries so that they believe that it was Ubtao who nearly exterminated their tribe, not their putative patron. Even if told otherwise, few of the surviving members of the Eshowe would even listen to such a tale.

  艾寿多的外形黑暗而扭曲,仿佛拙劣地模仿了恐龙之神乌塔欧对于自身魂灵所珍视的一切。作为幽影与邪恶之造物,幽影巨人以一种阴郁而黑暗的低音发言,散发出逐渐蚕食一切的毁灭。他是一个不折不扣的胆小鬼与寄生虫,而他的茁壮成长建立在荣耀、勇气、以及高贵的毁灭与颠覆之上,曾经勇敢而无畏者变得胆小怯懦,曾经可敬而荣耀者变得狡诈无耻,曾经高贵而庄严者变得自私贪婪,他尽情地吞噬享用这一切所释放出的负能量。在宗教艺术中,仅仅只会描绘出艾寿多的扭曲幽影。他的真实形态从被任何存在瞥见过——如果真有的话。
Eshowdow is a dark and twisted parody of all that Ubtao holds near and dear to his soul. A creature of shadow and evil, the Shadow Giant speaks in gloomy undertones and radiates an ever-encroaching doom. He is a true coward and a parasite, and he thrives on destroying or subverting courage, honor, and nobility, feasting on the negative energies of the courageous who become cowards' the honorable who become deceitful, and the noble who become base, self-serving, and greedy. When depicted in religious art, only Eshowdow, s twisted shadow is shown. His actual form has never been glimpsed, if he has one.

  (幽影巫师Shadow Mage 25*,盗贼Thief 23,牧师Cleric 14)

  艾寿多通常以一片有着模糊人形,以及修长利爪的巨大幽影的形态出现,他能够随意地在二维与三维存在间转换。幽影巨人偏好来自星界、混乱、魅惑、战斗、元素、死灵、保护、太阳(仅逆向)及战争领域的法术,以及咒法/召唤、附魔/魅惑、幻术/幻象及死灵学派的法术,尤其擅长使用法术掌控或召唤幽影。不过实际上他可以施展任何领域或学派的法术,除了那些能够创造光源或产生与其相排斥之事物的法术,例如 激励勇气evoking bravery移除恐惧removing of fear
Eshowdow appears as a huge, vaguely man-shaped shadow with long claws that can appear two-dimensional or three-dimensional at will. He favors spells from the astral, chaos, charm, combat, elemental, necromantic, protection, sun (reversed only), and war spheres and spells from the schools of conjuration/summoning, enchantment/charm, illusion/phantasm, and necromancy, and spells manipulating or conjuring shadows, although he can cast spells from any school or sphere that do not create light or cause things anathema to him, such as evoking bravery or the removing of fear .

  *Shadow mages are a type of specialist wizard detailed in Player's Option:Skilk & Powers. Shadow mages are a type of specialist wizard similar to illusionists, but with a focus on magic having to do with the shadows and the Demiplane of Shadows. If this reference is unavailable, Eshowdow is rated as a 25th-level illusionist instead, and the bonus spells listed below would be from the illusion/phantasm school,
   **Eshowdow is AC -3 in light or darkness, and AC -4 in any sort of shadow, at dusk, or at dawn.
   **Including one additional shadow magic spell per spell level.

特殊攻击/防御Special Att/Deft:

  幽影巨人可以随意融入任何幽影之中,使得所有的预言法术都无法接触到他(或许那些掌管黑暗或幽影的神力存在除外)。每轮1次,代替其它任何行动,艾寿多可以施展 位面转移plane shift,前往幽影半位面或返回主物质位面。
The Shadow Giant can merge into the shadows at will, becoming totally undetectable to all divination magics (except, perhaps, those of other darkness or shadow divine powers). Once per round Eshowdow can plane shift to the Demiplane of Shadow or back to the Prime Material Plane in lieu of any other action.

  利用幽影般的爪子,艾寿多每轮可以发动2次进攻。每次爪击将造成1d12点伤害,并从受害者身上吸取1个生命能量等级。任何被吸光等级或生命骰数的生物都会被转化为拥有最大生命骰数,处于艾寿多绝对控制之下的幽影。
Eshowdow can strike twice per round with his shadowy claws. Each attack inflicts ldl2 points of damage and drains one life energy level from the victim in addition to the physical damage. Any creature totally drained of levels or Hit Dice by these attacks becomes a shadow with maximum Hit Dice under Eshowdow's complete control.

  在战斗中,每轮有1%的可能性,一只 半影怪物demishadow monster(如同4级法师法术 半影怪物)会从艾寿多圣者的体内分裂出来。如果没有被摧毁的话,这些幻影将存在25轮。除非幽影巨人通过心灵感应命令它们执行某项任务,否则它们将紧紧地跟随圣者。它们的智力通常类似于艾寿多最近杀死的丛林野兽。当需要谨慎判断的时候,艾寿多可以阻止它们的出现。
There is a 1% chance per round that a demishadow monster (as per the 4th-level wizard spell demishadow monsters) breaks off from Eshowdow's avatar. These phantasms last for 25 rounds or until destroyed and follow at Eshowdow's heels unless telepathically commanded by the Shadow Giant to perform a task. They typically resemble the last beast of the jungle of animal intelligence that Eshowdow has killed. Eshowdow can prevent their formation when discretion is necessary.

其祂显现Other Manifestation

  艾寿多能够以幽影般的幻觉来现身,当它掠过丛林的时候,会对周围造成巨大的破坏。任何进入这种幽影50呎范围内的人将会立即遭受某种随机负面情绪(如同4级法师法术—从恐惧,憎恨,绝望,以及悲伤中选择)。任何愚蠢或不幸地穿越艾寿多幽影般展现的家伙将立即遭受一道法术 虚弱术enervation 效果(如同同名的4级法师法术)。
Eshowdow manifests as shadowy illusions which flit through the jungle causing havoc in their wake. Anyone passing within 50 feet of such shadows immediately suffers the effect of a randomly chosen negative emotion (as the 4th-level wizard spell~choose from /ear, hate, hopelessness, and sadness). Anyone foolish or unlucky enough to pass through Eshowdow's shadowy manifestations immediately suffers the effects of an enervation spell (as the 4th-level wizard spell of the same name).

  幽影、怨灵、夜嘶猎犬、以及众多来自 幽影半位面Demiplane of Shadow 的生物都服侍于艾寿多。这位半神经常通过以下生物的现身或行动来展示自己的意志或者宠眷:黑龙、绿龙与影龙、双足飞龙、鬼火及其亲族、流浪恐龙、青足龙蛇,以及大部分种类的多头蛇蜥。对于幽影巨人而言,以下物品是神圣的:黑色缟玛瑙Black onyx、黑色花岗岩black granite、黑玉jet、烟水晶smoky quartz、火天石agni mani、黑色蓝宝石black sapphires、黑檀ebony、扎兰塔木zalantar wood、以及其它黑色或朦胧的物质。艾寿多有时会故意地安排自己的信徒意外地发现这些事物,而如果信徒们将它们献祭给这位神灵的话,他就会表现得极为满意。
Eshowdow is served by shadows, wraiths, yeth hounds, and a wide variety of creatures from the Demiplane of Shadow. He often works his will or shows his favor through the appearance or actions of black, green, and shadow dragons, wyverns, will 0' wisps and their kin, rogue dinosaurs, behirs, and most breeds of hydras. Black onyx, obsidian, black granite, jet, smoky quartz, agni mani, black sapphires, ebony, and zalantar wood, and other black or dusky materials are sacred to the shadow giant. He sometimes uses an unexpected encounter with them as a sign to his worshipers and seems most pleased when they are used in items dedicated to his worship.

  艾寿多的所有专属祭司、萨满、护教军都会获得 宗教知识religion(楚尔特人Chultan)作为一项非武器熟练奖励。不同于 托瑞尔星球Toril 上的绝大多数信仰,艾寿多的教会中并不包括任何牧师。
All specialty priests, shamans, and crusaders of Eshowdow receive religion (Chultan) as a bonus nonweapon proficiency. Unlike those of most faiths on Toril' the clergy of Eshowdow do not number any clerics among their ranks.

  艾寿多的信仰几乎可以称得上排外,仅仅限于艾寿部族的少数残余者中,他们中的绝大多数生活在失落荣耀之谷。少数叛逆而不忠的泰博克西放逐者亦选择皈依此信仰,还包括一些 巴提利地精Batiri(楚尔特的丛林地精)。
The worship of Eshowdow is almost exclusively confined to the few remnants of the Eshowe people, most of whom live within the Valley of Lost Honor. A few disaffected and traitorous Tabaxi outcasts have joined their number over the years, as have some Batiri, the goblins of the Jungles of Chult.

  敬拜艾寿多的神庙都是幽影般的建筑,与其说它们位于主物质位面,不如说它们在更大程度上存在于幽影半位面。通常情况下,它们被修筑于丛林的地面,被 影墙术wall of shadow 法术构筑的永恒昏暗和阴影笼罩的区域。它们往往是低矮而压抑的复杂迷宫,外形类似于带有阶梯的金字塔。各种形态的暗影潜行于神庙的大厅,众多通往幽影半位面的传送门被设置在走廊与房间之内。该信仰的侍僧们不停地朗诵着某种低沉而单调的圣歌,而祭司们则忙于在任何忠于乌塔欧,而又不幸落入其手的泰博克西当地人身上,进行各种邪恶残忍的研究与试验。
Temples of Eshowdow are shadowy constructs that exist more on the Demiplane of Shadow than the Prime Material Plane. Typically they are constructed on the jungle floor in areas of perpetual gloom and shadow with wall of shadow spells. Such edifices are low, brooding complexes that resemble squat step pyramids. Dark shapes of varying forms stalk their halls, and numerous portals to the Demiplane of Shadow are located in their corridors and rooms. Acolytes of the faith maintain a low, monotone chanting while Eshowdow's priests further their fiendish research and experiment on any Tabaxi loyal to Ubtao unfortunate enough to fall into their clutches.

  艾寿多的神职人员被称为 艾寿多教派Eshewtak,超过65%的幽影巨人祭司是萨满,他们在人数上占据绝对优势。大约30%左右的成员是专属祭司,他们被称为 幽影行者shadow stalker,在教会与社会中扮演着显赫角色。剩余的教会成员是护教军。艾寿多的教会并没有设立正式的头衔阶级,但它有着一个相对宽松,基于祭司个人力量的层级体系。权力斗争的解决要么通过暗杀,要么用另一种更为罕见的方式——正式决斗。每一位祭司都会由将他引入教会的祭司赋予一个独特的头衔,以替代他从前的名字。这些新名字据说来自艾寿多本身,能够将接受者的命运展示给此人。
Eshowdow's clergy, known as the Eshewtak, is dominated numerically by shamans who make up over 65% of the Shadow Giant's priests. Approximately 30% of his priests are specialty priests, known as shadow stalkers, who serve in preeminent roles in the clergy and community. The remainderof the clergy are crusaders- Eshowdow's clergy has no formal hierarchy of titles, but it has a loose hierarchy of power based on personal prowess as a priest Conflicts of station resolved either through assassinations or, less commonly, formal due!$‘ Each individual priest is given a unique title in lieu of his name by the ptiest wllo inducts him into the priesthood. These new names are said to cpm from Eshowdow himself and speak of the des-tiny of the individual to whom they are given.

教义Dogma:

  依照艾寿多教派(传自艾寿多)的观点,乌塔欧创造了世界,但在此过程中,他破坏了自身灵魂与躯体的结合。作为这种分裂的恶果,乌塔欧陷入邪恶,试图将自己的众多创造奴役于永恒的折磨之中。他选择了最为野蛮而邪恶的楚尔特部落泰博克西,来担任他的凡间代理人。当爱好和平的艾寿部族起义反抗泰博克西残暴统治的时候,乌塔欧却打算毁灭他们。陷入绝望的艾寿部族转而求助乌塔欧的真正本质,一位幽影之精魂,将族人送往乌塔欧曾经应许给他们的土地。艾寿多——此精魂的名号,敲打着麦兹罗的坚固城门,并不断恳求。但遭到那座城市邪恶祭司的驱逐,并在乌塔欧魔法的驱使下,被迫袭击了和平的艾寿人。艾寿多成功地救出了一些艾寿族人,并从此肩负其照料他们的重任,准备带领他们进入曾经被允诺的世界,那里到处都是柔和的幽影,永远不会有纷争与冲突。但是在前往那片土地以前,他们必须消灭泰博克西部族,并协助艾寿多吸收乌塔欧。
In the view of the Eshewtak passed down from Eshowdow, Ubtao created the world, but in doing so he broke the bonds between his body and his spirit. As a result of this schism, Ubtao turned to evil and sought to enslave his own creations in perpetual torture. He chose the most degenerate and evil tribe of Chult, the Tabaxi, to serve as his mortal over- seers. When the peaceful Eshowe rebelled against the tyranny of the Tabaxi, Ubtao sought to destroy them. The desperate Eshowe turned to Ubtao's true essence, a spirit of shadow, to deliver them to the promised land Ubtao had intended for them- Eshowdow, as the spirit was called, knocked on the doors of Mezro in supplication, but was driven away by the evil priests of that city and forced to attack the peaceful Eshowe by Ubtao by means of his magic, Eshowdow managed to save some of the Eshowe, and ever since he has cared for them and been preparing them to enter the world they were intended for, a world of soft, gentle shadow and everlasting freedom from conflict. Before they can pass that into that land, however, they must eliminate the Tabaxi and assist Eshowdow in subsuming Ubtao.

  根据艾寿多的教导,每一个生物在其诞生之刻起都会同自身的灵魂分离。贯穿整整一生,灵魂都将会紧紧地跟随着凡人形态,但拒绝追随艾寿多之教诲的话,两者将永远无法合而为一。唯有将灵魂与肉体向融合,才能够成为更为高等之存在。艾寿多教派被教导生命是充满苦难的,但如果违逆艾寿多的话,众多苦难将会被加深;他们永远都不能信任泰博克西人,最终必须将对方从楚尔特大地上抹去。只有当完美的时机来临的时候,同泰博克西族与乌塔欧发生正面冲突才是明智之举。在其他时期,暗中破坏,间谍谋杀,引诱清白无辜者堕落,在泰博克西族人中秘密地破坏颠覆权威,都是达到艾寿多目标的完美策略,因为这一切不但只会给他自己的人民带来最小限度的风险,而且还能够让敌人陷入恐惧与猜疑之中。最后,即使在死亡的剧痛中,任何艾寿多教派都绝不可以将艾寿多的至高神庙 巨影之邸the Great Shadow's Mansion 的位置透露给任何非信徒。
Eshowdow teaches that every creature is divorced from its spirit upon its creation. The spirit follows the mortal form through life, but the two cannot be reunited without following the teachings of Eshowdow. Only by merging the spirit with the body can a being enter a higher state of existence. The Eshewtak are taught that life is hard, but it is harder if they do not obey Eshowdow; that they must never trust the Tabaxi and ultimately they are to eliminate them from the face of Chult; and that direct confrontation between themselves and the Tabaxi and Ubtao is wise only when the timing is perfect. At other times, sabotage, the killing of spies and stragglers, subversion of the innocent and the naive, and covert elimination of those in authority among the Tabaxi are the perfect strategies to achieve Eshowdows goals because they pose the least risk to his own people, the Eshowe, and turn the enemy upon itself in fear and doubt. Finally, on pain of death, no Eshewtak can reveal the location of the high temple of Eshowdow, the Great Shadow's Mansion, to anyone who does not worship him.

日常活动Day-to-Day Activities:

  艾寿多教派负责艾寿民族缓慢重建的日常管理工作。他们控制着部落的每一方面,精神,政治,以及文化,无论是直接还是间接。艾寿多教派们通常将自己的每一天都花费在了策划如何对泰博克西展开各种袭击。其中很多成员选择逗留在幽影半位面,寻求能够对抗敌人的失落魔法。总体上讲,艾寿的教会组织内充满了各种各样,关于秘密与复仇的争斗需求,所有成员都因为党派之争,或长期压抑的憎恨而陷入分裂,后者甚至最终可能会让整个教会陷入毁灭。
The Eshewtak are involved in the daily administration of the slowly rebuilding Eshowe nation. They control every aspect of the tribe, s spiritual, political, and cultural structures, either directly or indirectly. The Eshewtak spend their days gathering intelligence about and planning attacks on the Tabaxi, Many sojourn on the Demiplane of Shadow seeking lost magics and spells usable against their foes. As a whole, the clergy of Eshowe are consumed with the competing needs for secrecy and revenge, but within the priesthood they are riven by factionalism and long-simmering hatreds that may eventually prove their undoing.

圣日/重要节日Holy Days/Important Ceremonies:

  每一年艾寿多教派都会庆祝两个圣日,大挖掘Unearthing 与 万众叹息之日Day of All Sighs。大挖掘是一场举行于黑暗之下的庆典,每一年都需要不同的举办日期。这场庆典总是伴随着阴郁而多云的天气。当进行至重要时刻的时候,乌云会暂时分裂开来,而一场日蚀出将展现于参与者眼前(这些天文现象仅仅出现在失落荣耀之谷,并不会影响楚尔特或费伦的其他地方)。艾寿部族以这一天来纪念幽影巨人的发掘,以及他向泰博克西复仇的誓言。
The Eshewtak celebrate two holy days every year:the Unearthing and the Day of All Sighs, The Unearthing is a day of dark celebration whose exact date varies from year to yean The Unearthing is always marked by gloomy, cloudy weather and, in times of great im-port, by a brief parting of the clouds during which an eclipse of the sun can be perceived. Such astronomical events are visible only in the Valley of Lost Honor and do not necessarily correspond to anything experienced elsewhere in Chult or the Realms. On this day, the Eshowe mark the disinterment of the Shadow Giant and his promise of revenge against the Tabaxi.

  在大挖掘之后,万众叹息之日通常会被庆祝66天之久。在这些阴森而压抑的日子里,艾寿人为他们曾经被神灵乌塔欧与泰博克西部族击败而哀悼忧伤,并发誓为最终的复仇之战奉献一切。在此期间,很多艾寿人将会经受一场被称为“幽影契合Shadow Binding”的庄严仪式。凭借 召唤幽影精魂summon shadow spirit 咒语的广泛使用,艾寿多教派将每位接受者的影子束缚入他的体内,这种仪式被认为可以使被分离的灵魂同肉体重新结合,但在这一切背后真相的恐怖与骇人却远远超出任何艾寿人的想象极限。
The Day of All Sighs is always celebrated 66 days after the Unearthing-On this somber day, the Eshowe mourn their ancient defeat by Ubtao and the Tabaxi and rededicate themselves to their eventual vengeance. On this day, many Eshowe undergo a solemn ceremony known as the Shadow Bindings With extensive use of the summon shadow spirit incantation, the Eshewtak bind each recipient's shadow into their body in a ceremony that is supposed to reunite their sundered spirit with their mortal form. The truth behind this ritual is far more horrifying than the Eshowe dare contemplate.

主要崇拜中心Major Centers of Worship:

  在失落荣耀之谷,巨影之邸是最为庞大的大型建筑物,它修建于一座巨洞般的地窖顶部——在很久以前,艾寿多就是被从这里发掘出来的,这个庞大而复杂的建筑群由一座完全由 幽影物质shadowstuff 构建的阶梯金字塔主导。这座神殿对未经受过召唤幽影精魂的任何人都是不可觉察的。它只有通过 真知术true seeing 法术,或 真知宝石gem of true seeing,或者旅行前往幽影半位面才能目睹,那是这座建筑的真正存在之地。这座至高无上的艾寿多神庙担任着这个“幽影”国度的精神,军事,以及行政中枢。每天,成群的艾寿武士都会在这里或附近接受训练,他们狂热地期盼着向毫无防备的泰博克西族发动战争。
The Great Shadow's Mansion is the largest edifice in the Valley of Lost Honor, Built on top of the cavernous crypt from which Eshowdow was disinterred centuries ago, this sprawling complex is dominated by a great step pyramid constructed entirely of shadowstuff. The temple is imperceptible to anyone who has not undergone a summon shadow spirit incantation- It can only otherwise be discerned by means of a true seeing spell or gem of true seeing or by traveling to the Demiplane of Shadow, where it primarily exists. The paramount temple of Eshowdow serves as the spiritual, military, and administrative heart of the Eshowdow ushadown nation. Squads of Eshowe warriors train within it or near it daily for the eagerly anticipated war with the unsuspecting Tabaxi.

从属组织Affiliated Orders:

  肯斯瓦-托卡寿The Kenswa-Tokashow,也即 乌木手掌之子the Children of the Ebon Hand,是一支由护教军、武士、以及游荡者组成的松散组织,它的成员们充当着艾寿部族精锐武力的角色。在行动的时候,这些战士往往聚集为三人小队——人们称其为 三人团Triads,他们潜伏在楚尔特丛林的各处,伏击落单的泰博克西人、毁灭家畜与农田、搜集与他们可憎敌人相关的一切信息。这支组织专注于毁灭泰博克西部族以及城市麦兹罗。组织的成员曾经在很多场合与 三角龙结社Triceratops Society 发生过冲突,后者一支善良阵营的泰博克西秘密组织,它的宗旨是阻止任何个人或组织扰乱破坏楚尔特原本的社会秩序。迄今为止,耶特普卡Ytepka(此秘密组织的泰博克西名字)仍未能意识到乌木手掌之子的存在,将后者的密探误认为叛逆的泰博克西强盗。
The Kenswa-Tokashow, the Children of the Ebon Hand, are a loosely structured order of crusaders, warriors, and rogues who serve as the elite military arm of the Eshowe. Grouped into squads of three known as Triads, the Children can be found throughout the Jungle of Chult ambushing lone Tabaxi, destroying livestock and farms, and gathering information on their hated foes. The order is dedicated to the elimination of the Tabaxi and the destruction of Mezro. Members of the group have clashed on several occasions with the Triceratops Society, a Tabaxi secret society of gcxxl-aligned beings dedicated to preventing individuals and groups from upsetting the natural social order in Chult. So far, the Ytepka (the Tabaxi name for members of the society) are unaware of the existence of the Children of the Ebon Hand, mistaking its agents for renegade Tabaxi bandits.

  阿布亚-德姆寿瓦the Abuya-Deimshowa,也即 幽影代言人the Speakers of the Shadow,是一个由高阶幽影法师组成的小团伙,负责在艾寿部族中管理魔法的使用。该组织成员同艾寿多教派合作,并组建了长老议会,为各个部落的酋长提供建议与咨询。如果希望被该结社招募的话,必须首先施展 影行术 法术前往幽影半位面,并设法在这片阴暗之地维持生存至少一个月之久,然后活着返回失落荣耀之谷。很多 阿布亚卡Abuyaka(这是该组织成员的称呼)最终会接受转化为阴魂所必须的仪式。在通常情况下,阿布亚-德姆寿瓦往往显得保守而极具耐心,它经常会同肯斯瓦—托卡寿的领导者在事务的方针政策上针锋相对,发生冲突。
The Abuya-Deimshowa, the Speakers of the Shadow, are a cabal of senior shadow mages who govern the use of wizard magic among the Eshowe. They work with the Eshewtak and serve as a council of eiders who advise the chiefs of the scattered clans. Members are initiated into the society after traveling to the Demiplane of Shadow by means of a shadow walk spell, surviving in that land of gloom for at least one month, and then returning alive to the Valley of Lost Honor. Many Abuyakas, as they are known individually, eventually undergo the transformation necessary to become shades. In general, the Abuya-Deimshowa are conservative and patient, and the group often clashes on matters of policy with the leaders of the Kenswa-Tokashow.

祭司祭服Priestly Vestments:

  艾寿多教派偏好宽松合体的 黑色托贝裤tobe(读作“TOE-bays”,一种在潮湿环境下极为舒适的裙裤),以及复杂的铜制珠宝(可以被蚀刻出某种惨绿色图案)。在敬神典礼之前,艾寿多的祭司们会在自己身体上描绘出黑白相间的斑纹,象征着光与暗的交互影响,然后用雕刻有各种丛林野兽图案的黑曜石或黑玉项链来装饰自己。
The Eshewtak favor loose-fitting, black tobes (TOE-bays)—a type of skirt comfortable in the ever-present humidity— and intricate copper jewelry which is allowed to corrode to a sickly green shade. Prior to worship ceremonies, Eshowdow's priests paint themselves with alternating stripes of white and black to symbolize the interplay of light and darkness and adorn themselves with obsidian or jet necklaces carved to resemble various reptilian beasts of the jungle.

冒险装束Adventuring Garb:

  在这类场合,艾寿多教派会穿戴上某种特殊的 艾寿链甲mail armor(AC6),它是由取自 巨龙dragon、恐龙dinosaur、青足龙蛇behir、以及 多头蛇蜥hydra 的皮革而制成的,被设计为可以吸收丛林的炎热。配合一面被称为 哈兰盾hlang 的中型盾牌,使得它们拥有极为有效的防御等级5。艾寿人与艾寿多教派同样也使用 柯瑞棒kerrie(一种棍棒/钉头锤)以及 亚柯瓦矛yklwa(短柄刺矛)。(关于 哈兰盾hlang、柯瑞棒kerrie 和 亚柯瓦矛yklwa 的更多信息。见 乌塔欧Ubtao 章节)
The Eshewtak fashion a special form of Eshowe scale mail armor (AC 6) from the hides of dragons, dinosaurs, behirs, and hydras that is designed to breathe in the jungle heat. Combined with a medium shield known as a hlang this gives them an effective AC of 5. The Eshowe and the Eshewtak also use kerries (a form of club/mace) and yklwas (short stabbing spears). (See the Ubtao entry for information on hlangs, kerries, and yklwas.)

恒久阴影Continual Shadow

  (祭司Pr 3;转化Alteration)

  领域Sphere:太阳Sun
  距离Range:120 码
  组件Components:言语V,姿势S
  持续时间Duration:永久

  豁免检定Saving Throw:特殊

  除了它创造了一片幽影且昏暗的区域,并持续直到被魔法光亮、魔法黑暗或一道 驱散魔法dispel magic 法术消解为止外,这道法术类似于 恒久之光continual light恒久之暗continual darkness 法术。生物在阴影区域内将因该法术影响而获得惩罚或奖励。如同 恒久之光恒久之暗 法术,该法术可以对空气,某个物品或某个生物施展。在第3种情形,恒久阴影 的效果目标成功通过了法术豁免检定,则表示法术所影响的是此生物身后一呎的空间。豁免检定的失败意味着 恒久阴影 以该生物为中心,并随着它的移动而移动。如果这个法术被施展在一个被不透光物体覆盖的目标上,直到覆盖物移除之前这个法术的效果都会被限制。
This spell is similar to a continual light or continual darkness spell, except it creates an area of perpetual shadow and gloom and lasts until negated by magical light, magical darkness, or a dispel magic spell. Creatures with penalties or bonuses in areas of shadow implement them in this spells effects. As with the continual light and continual darkness spells, this spell can be cast into the air, onto an object, or at a creature. In the third case, the continual shadow affects the space about 1 foot behind a creature that successfully rolls its saving throw vs. spell; a failed saving throw means the continual shadow is centered on the creature and moves as it moves. If the spell is cast on a small object that is then placed in a light-proof covering, the spell effects are blocked until the covering is removed.

  被带进魔法黑暗或魔法光亮区域的 恒久阴影 法术会抵消这光亮或黑暗,所以其他普遍的光照环境可以在法术的效果区域内继续存在。直接对一个类似或更弱的魔法光亮或魔法黑暗直接施展的 恒久阴影 法术将取消类似或更弱的魔法光亮或魔法黑暗。
{{sp|sp = Continual shadow brought into an area of magical darkness or magical light cancels the light or darkness so that otherwise prevailing light conditions exist in the overlapping areas of effect. A direct casting of a continual shadow spell against a similar or weaker magical light or magical darkness cancels both.

  该法术最终会消耗掉被作为施法目标的材料。然而,这个过程比通常战役所需的时间更长。极其耐用与昂贵的材料能够最终坚持上百年甚至上千年。
This spell eventually consumes the material it is cast upon, but the process takes far longer than the time in a typical campaign. Extremely hard and expensive materials might last hundreds or even thousands of years.

  持续时间Duration:永久
  施法时间Casting Time:24 小时
  影响区域Area of Effect:1 只生物
  豁免检定Saving Throw:通过则无效

  这个独特的法术形成于世代的 艾寿部族the Eshowe 的文化,并持续使这个部落陷入它的恶毒影响中。作为部落典礼的一部分,超过一半的艾寿族,包括所有的酋长、萨满、专属祭司、护教军、巫师以及优秀的战士,都经受过这个契合仪式。只有个别最遥远或最微不足道的艾寿氏族完全未被这个咒语腐化。
This unique spell has shaped the culture of the Eshowe for generations and continues to enmesh the tribe in its malevolent effects. Over half of the Eshowe, including all the chiefs, shamans, specialty priests, crusaders, mages, and prominent warriors, undergo this ritual of binding as part of a tribal ceremony. Only a few of the most remote and insignificant Eshowe clans are completely untouched by this incantation's taint.

  作为法术的结果,受术者的影子被永久地缚入他或她的身体或精魂中。自此之后,不论当前的光照条件如何,召唤幽魂精魂的受术者都不会再次自然地产生影子。除非自愿放弃豁免检定,为避免法术影响,因为由他的感知属性修正他的魔法防御调整值,召唤幽魂精魂法术的目标在法术豁免检定上得到+1奖励。
By means of this spell, the recipient's shadow is permanently bound into his or her body and spirit. Thereafter, the recipient of a summon shadow spirit spell never again naturally creates a shadow, regardless of the immediate light conditions. The subject of a summon shadow spirit spell receives a saving throw vs. spell at a +1 bonus, modified by his magical defense adjustment due to Wisdom, to avoid this spells effects unless the saving throw is voluntarily forgone.

  尽管艾寿族相信通过该法术将影子重归了身体,但真相是这个咒语将一个栖息于 负能量位面Negative Material Plane 的 幽影shadow(如同《怪物图鉴Monstrous Manual》所述)缚入了受术者。这道链接传输了一些幽影的天生防御给受术者。受术者免疫睡眠、魅惑、定身法术和基于寒冷的攻击。对手需要+1或更好的魔法武器来伤害该法术的受术者。
Although the Eshowe believe that a being's spirit is restored to its body by means of this spell, in truth this incantation binds a shadow (as described in the Monstrous Manual tome) that dwells on the Negative Material Plane to the recipient. This link transfers many of the shadow's natural defenses to the recipient. A recipient is immune to sleepy, charm, and hold spells and cold-based attacks. Opponents require a +1 or better magical weapon to wound a recipient of this spell.

  然而,该法术对目标有很多阴险的影响。幽影的结合将导致向混乱邪恶阵营缓慢、但不可阻挡的偏移。此外,这个法术的受术者有每1年累积1%的可能性永久地转化为一只幽影。
However, this spell also has numerous insidious effects on the target. The binding of the shadow causes a slow, but inexorable, shift in alignment in the target to chaotic evil. In addition, there is a 1% cumulative chance per year that a recipient of this spell is permanently transformed into a shadow.

  该法术的材料组件是祭司的圣徽和一片阴影区域。

  豁免检定Saving Throw:

  影墙术wall of shadow 创造了一道20呎/每施法者等级见方,或10呎+5呎/每2级祭司经验等级半径,且20呎高的固定的暮光帷幕。
A wall of shadow spell creates an immobile curtain of twilight up to one 20-foot square per level of the spellcaster or a ring with a radius of up to 10 feet+5 feet for every two levels of experience of the priest, and 20 feet high.

  影墙术 必须以相对于施法者垂直的方式施展。对于任何链接着或曾经停留了任意长度时间于幽影半位面the Demiplane of Shadow或负能量位面the Negative Energy Plane(包括 召唤魅影精魂summon shadow spirit 法术的受术者。)的人或事物而言,影墙术 是如同 力墙术wall of force 一样的固体。任何其他人穿越 影墙术 必须通过一次成功的法术豁免检定,否则将受到持续2d4小时的弱能术enervation法术的影响。这道法术通常被用来创建影影绰绰的大型建筑,影墙对外来人无实无质、对那些艾寿多的神职人员和追随者而言则是固体。
A wall of shadow must be cast so that it is vertical with respect to the spellcaster. A wall of shadow is as solid as a wall of force to anyone or anything that is connected to or has ever existed for any length of time on the Demiplane of Shadow or the Negative Energy Plane. (This includes recipients of a summon shadow spirit spell.) Anyone else who passes through a wall of shadow must make a successful saving throw vs. spell or suffer the effects of an enervation spell with a duration of 2d4 hours. This spell is often used to created shadowy edifices that seem insubstantial to outsiders but which are as solid as granite to Eshowdow's clergy and followers.

  该法术的材料组件是祭司的圣徽和一片阴影区域。
