Sea-Hags continued to war against the faction due to their
support of the Mer-folk, and most recently reawakened
the Cu-Hurigan, a race of extremely tough sea demons that
have laid waste to areas around the Forest isles.
The Cu-Hurigan are a an underwater race of Sea Demons
that seem to originate in Mauritanja. Their main centre
of activity is around Forest isle in South East Mauritanja.
They are Green skinned with Black scales, though variants
have been seen.
here the Cu-Hurigan came from originally is unknown at
the moment. All that is known is that the Sea Hags brought
them back after they captured a Tankard at Get Stuffed
IV. This allowed them to get to the Tempest ritual circle
in the Solent and perform a ritual. Their appearance seemed
to coincide with the sinking of several islands due to
Holy Isle's touch down.
they want is a little more unclear. The Sea Hags sought
to control the Cu-Hurigan but failed and returned to the
Unicorns seeking peace (but were unfortunately butchered
by some Mer-folk). The Cu-Hurigan have done little so
far to communicate their desires to the Unicorn Faction.
They have ransacked the Isle of the Dead, one of the sunken
Forest Isles where the Will of Babd-Catha had laid their
fallen. They have assaulted various ships around that
area and many of their warriors to capture and kill those
who attended the recent Moots on Unicorn lands. But why
they are doing these things is not known as the Cu-Hurigan
do not seem to be able to talk in the common tongue and
none have been captured for interrogation yet.
types of Cu-Hurigan have been identified so far. The males
seem distinctly different from the females. The main number
of the males seem to warriors. Extremely heavily muscled
they have thick scales and carry large very sharp weapons.
They do not wear armour, but their natural toughness makes
them almost as tough as a warrior in full armour anyhow.
Some of these have black markings across them and are
larger still. Their scales are so tough that normal blades
just slide off them. However, blunt weapons have full
smaller variant of the males seems to have some magical
ability. Their powers is more akin in Incantation than
spell casting. They are less heavily muscled and less
heavily armed, but are still tougher than your average
human warrior. Some have reported these more magical Cu-Hurigan
having ability to freeze with a touch, but this is not
the Women of the Cu-Hurigan are the obvious leaders of
the race. They wear some form of magical armour formed
out of Ice, and the more powerful of these are immune
to even enchanted blades. Their blades bite with searing
cold and they can strike down their foes with the power
of their mind. In the assault on Talkontar at the first
Moot1 1101 AF, several older Women were seeing unleashing
such forces that they pierced the Ritual of Peace and
left Unicorns bleeding on the floor.
the Mauritanjan Winter Parliament of 1102 AF, the Cu-Hurigan
laid heavy assault to the isle of Vaecena. They were led
by a creature made of water called Leviathan that claimed
to be their creator. Their heavy assault almost destroyed
the Unicorns who held the island, but they managed to
seal the rift that Leviathan sought to open and repel
his attacks. Since then the Cu-Hurigan have retreated
to the south east of Forest Isle, in South Eastern Mauritanja.
