Brutal Critical. Vuthra can roll three additional weapon damage die when determining the extra damage for a critical hit with a melee attack.

R'lyeh. Vuthra was gifted this artifact to aid his effort of destruction. This weapon can be summoned and banished to an empty hand at will. Vuthra has satisfied the sword's spirit enough to gain its full cooperation.

Beyond the rim of every world, be it the horizon, sky, or other boundary, there is always the territory of the unknown. What is unknown to some is known and often belonging to others. Past the sunsets off the Sword Coast, the stars above Faerûn, and the Astral Sea lie the Outer Planes. These places are the images of the afterlife for many mortal creatures. The Seven Heavens, Limbo, Hades, Valhalla, among many more rest at this extreme boundary of the universe. However, even their territories end somewhere.

What lies beyond the resting places of the benevolent is a treacherous and unexplored miasma of uncertainty; the Far Planes.

It is from this void that the Old Ones command their masses of twisted mortals. Their touch extends from the lost minds of Elder Brains and Aboleths to spread madness and chaos. One such creature was name Vuthra. He was a young lizardfolk when a disciple of “The Messenger” came. A nondescript and amorphous individual, the mad prophet proclaimed that knowledge and power awaited the faithful and worthy. Vuthra took a slight interest, as did others, and pledged his life to the service of “The Messenger.”

Once just a devout servant, Vuthra was selected to become more than a simple follower. “The Messenger” gave Vuthra the path and trials to ascend to a higher station among the cultists. After many grueling decades, Vuthra had battled madness, death, disease, sickness, as well as directly combatted kingdoms and countries in pursuit of the knowledge and power promised to him.

Vuthra now stands triumphant in the face of those trials. His days as a mortal have ended. “The Messenger” lets him run amok, content in the slaughter and malice in his puppet. He now wages war and sows fear among those foolish enough to feel such a weak emotion to prepare the world for the inevitable return of the Old Ones.
