What’s that Burning Smell? A look at the Cult of the Searing Torchbearers

Meet the Searing Torchbearer Cultists

Those cultists are another thing, I tell you. More likely to burn each other with those weird symbols of those. Some people like the smell of bacon in the morning. I think they prefer the smell of another meat instead….” – Maud the Mauler, after an encounter with the Searing Torchbearers in Pier’s Landing.

The Cult of the Searing Torchbearers are the main antagonists in the Mystery of Drav’eka Manor, my forthcoming adventure module. Devoted to an efreet seeking to open a portal to the plane of fire, this group will stop at nothing to fulfill the terms of their pact. Vicious, impulsive and consumed with burning ambition. Let’s take a look at the basic statblock for a sneak peek at them.

Some cultists are in it for the money, others for the fame, and others seek the ambition and power that comes from the cult. Either way, they are a force to be reckoned with when you let them surround you.

The Mystery of Drav’eka Manor will be published later this week! I’m super excited to share this with you!
