Gungablub the Ascerbic is a haughty member of the warpriest elite of disciples of Yig, ascendant religious power of Barbledrum, home city of the odd race of zif. Where Gungablub travels, sycophant zif follow, hoping to receive favor from the up-and-coming cleric, or be selected to be part of zif’s gang of righteous followers. Gungablub feels that it is time for the dominance of the starry-eyed shellrune wizards and money-grubbing merchants to end, and the fervor of the faithful of the Great Old Ones, especially Yig, the Undefeated, to rise once more. Zif knows that this is not accomplished merely through wishing; zif and the other disciples of Yig know that the alliance with the murble-class is essential, and so Gungablub is developing zif’s martial power in the hopes of challenging one of the more powerful members of the warrior caste. Gungablub is not a typical, collective-minded zif, which makes other zif nervous before zif’s forceful personality, just the way zif likes it. When Gungablub finally begins to make zif’s move, politics in the entire region will be affected, for good or ill, and if the Tuthoni do not hear about it soon, their towns near Barbledrum will be in dire trouble, indeed.
