Oriax Image-Dump #2: Pics from the Forsaken Planet, Mother of Blasphemies.

I haven't been able to devote much time and energy to either of my settings lately, but I thought it would be a shame to let these languish on my hard drive.  Anyway, in the mean time, here's some of what you might encounter were you to be stranded on the cursed planet of Oriax.

Items of Psychotronic Might #1: The Mask of Tor

 Part 1 of ?  Collect the set!

Believed to be the ancient death-mask of Tor, legendary hero-saint and patron of Strength and Unreasoning Belligerence.  The mask was once kept in a place of honor at Tor's Heroon, a small, well-tended shrine on the outskirts of the hero's reputed birthplace.  At some point (record-keeping not being a well-developed art by Tor cultists) the mask was stolen, and, despite a series of enthusiastically joined but logistically incoherent quests, has yet to be recovered.
The Mask in its dormant state
The character donning the Mask of Tor rolls 2d10, and adds this number to both STR and CON, even if (especially if) this takes their score well beyond the maximum.  The wearer's INT and WIS are dropped by the same amount, and the effect lasts a number of rounds equal to the higher of the two rolls, at the end of which, the wearer's eyes glaze over and they collapse to the ground with a thud, where they remain insensate for 1d4 rounds.  The Mask is usable once per day. 

Cheap replica mask worn by Cultists.
