Lore[edit | edit source]

In the darkest corner deep within the black and necrotic bog of The 3rd Plane Stalker waits, her patience second to none, but it didn't matter how long she waited her web was always empty. Anything that crawled into the bog was instantly pelted with ice raining down in dagger like shards slicing anything it touched. If that didn't kill whatever crept in, the tar like sludge of the bog acted like a quagmire. Drawing anything from the surface down into the thick viscous mixture suffocating it slowly.

Stalker's web is the only thing that saved her from such a fate. When she first arrived here she was moments away from landing in the bog. Luckily she reacted within time and latched her webbing to a near by decaying tree. With her honed skills it didn't take long for her to weave a web between the branches strong enough to withstand the raining shards of ice.

As she finished stringing the last tendrils together she took a few steps back and almost fell out into the bog. It was only then she realized she had woven her own coffin. Forced to live in the webbed hovel atop a decaying tree waiting for anything to get stuck. It was ironic, she was the last of her kind. A species dubbed the greatest hunters and yet she would never hunt again. It was only because of her heritage that she could go centuries without feeding, but her time was running short. Each day her stomach would growl, moaning at the bog for its cruel trick.

It had started like any other day: Stalker awoke and scurried over every interior inch of her webbed cave searching for any morsel that might have gotten trapped. There of course was nothing. She did note a few places where the webbing had gotten thin from the ice rain striking it so she began to repair it. That was when she heard the sounds of laughter and taunting. "chhssst kaatch What's this... prey?" She quickly tore at the thin webbing to expose a crack and just on the other side she could see bouncing lights skipping and dashing. Her hunger outweighed her hunter's caution and she lunged through the crack landing in a tight stone corridor lined with torches. To say the least she hasn't eaten this well in ages.
