Monster of the Week - Acolyte of the Traveller

The Eberron Bestiary has just uploaded its latest monster. In the spirit of the holiday, this week's monster is a sinister creature inspired by the frequently quoted saying: 'beware the gifts of the Traveller.' Unlike our own Santa Claus, this Acolyte of the Traveller will not give something for nothing. The gifts he delivers always come with a catch, and you would do well not to break the conditions. Feared by children across Khorvaire, you won't find impersonators in the local marketplace.

Accompanying this update is an excellent piece of short fiction by Wizards.COMmunity boards member Kinger. Be sure not to overlook it!

Here is a sneak preview:

A tall, hunched figure stands before you. It has long, spindly limbs and an awkward gait, and is draped in a dusty, grey mantle. It carries a large burlap sack over its shoulder.

On the 26th to the 28th of Vult, the Nights of Long Shadows, many of Khorvaire’s families gather to fight the heightened power of the Shadow with cheer, song and goodwill. However, the Shadow is not the only deity active during this time. As always, the Traveller seeks to sew his gifts about Khorvaire, and the deity uses these three nights to spread chaos and revelry.
