attacks effective against all enemies immaterial of the nature of their

been hit by their weakness, a werewolf will feel if it has been hit by silver.
Someone only harmed by psionics attacks will take damage as if hit by a psionic
attack and so on.
provides sensor abilities equal to any mechanical, magical, psionic or by any
other means. In effect, can see in all spectrum's, can see invisible, see aura,
presence sense, see in shadows, motion detectors, sixths sense, radar, all
natural senses are equal to extraordinary senses super powers and so on
provide stealth capabilities that hide host from most means of sensing,
including mechanical, magical, psionic or by any other means. Is undetectable in
stealth mode to most sensors whatever their nature and origin. In fact in full
stealth mode, he does not trigger sixth sense and can even surprise attack 4D
beings and juicers
provides hidden compartments for storage. Using it the host can
understand/speak/read all languages and even imitate accents and voices. It can
be used in the vacuum of space, to the abyss of the deepest ocean. In fact Taron
has used it to travel to each of the elemental planes to converse with the
elementals in their own element. A feat only possible for Warlocks and other
Desire symbiote weapon.
has a symbiote, which morphs into an elven bow, it creates energy blasts
NOTE: Player Character’s can choose the look/design of their symbiote weapon)
most times though the symbiote becomes a weapon that reflects the most
innermost, private desires of the host. The PC may think this is my favourite,
but the symbiote reveals what his heart truly desires and sees the world as)
MDC – per melee or arrow strike. Soul
drinker (even at range! The weapon must consume THREE life per month in order to
live and power itself – it will wither away after 2 months without consuming a
soul – or it will have to consume its host and find another!). NB: soul
drinking is a refined ability for this to be done as far as Splugorth lords are
concerned, otherwise the host would have to cannibalise his/her enemies and eat
them alive. ( for each symbiote you need to roll 1d4 for life required and 2d4
weeks for every week) Full eba or pa does not stop this attack, nor does any
personal forcefields (I.E invulnerability tattoo or psionic shield etc .
most gods are vulnerable to this attack. Does not work against SI, who take
1d6X100MDC from a successful attack)
can spray multiple targets (3d4 opponents) for D6x10 MDC damage each!
some HD warriors have two (two is MAX amount of weapon symbiotes a host can
have) hearts desire symbiote weapons, either 2 firearms or 2 melee weapons, or
one melee, and one firearm. Taron’s
Hearts desire symbiotes are merged together as one permanently. So the wooden
bow serves as melee weapon or can be used as a bow weapon.
bow has 60 shots but can be recharged once fully for another 60 shots before 24
hr sleep/meditation is needed.
symbiote provides all psionics, including mindbleeder psionics at current level.
Other than sixth sense and summon inner strength, which can be used any time and
as much as host wants. The symbiote will provide 30 uses of the psionics before
twenty-four hours rest/meditation is required.
symbiote provides all temporal magic at current level.
provides thirty temporal spells before twenty-four hours rest/meditation is
required. Includes spells unique to 4D beings.
Symbiote provides ALL spell knowledge (including spell magic in FOM/Underseas
books) at current level.
provides fifty spells before twenty-four hours rest/meditation is required
also has a hearts desire symbiote which morphs into his transport, either as a
beast of burden or tech vehicle. Takes up to D6x10 minutes to change from
symbiote to vehicle/beast and 1D10 minutes to change from beast/vehicle, back
into symbiote. This symbiote will have a 70% of the damage and speed. of
whatever it morphs into and any attacks will only do 70% of damage normally done
by vehicle being copied. The
symbiote can replicate any vehicle, riding animal, that it merges with and
studies for D6x10 minutes.
it is the favourite riding animal or vehicle the host wishes to have and this it
can do at 160% efficiency of the vehicle/beasts stats in books. For this the
change from symbiote to vehicle and verse versa takes around a melee.
vehicles/beasts can be stored in symbiote, which it can replicate at 100%
efficiency and morph from symbiote to vehicle in a matter of melees (2d6melees).
Taron’s favourite is an Alien ship that he encountered on one his
Megaversal forays. The three pre-programmed
vehicles/beasts that Taron currently has are a FBN caravan, an FBN
Flip Buggy and a monstrous Tiger Warbeast.
The symbiotes only reacts for the host so it will always be a single seater;
immaterial of its size! The host has to will it to accommodate others, and then
it will only hold a handful of people, immaterial of its size (3d4 people per
level for 1d6 hours per level).
was young when he left the NGR. He followed his desires and struck out on
adventures across the world. A self obsessed arrogant strategist he was captured
by splugorth slavers and taken to Splynn, where he suffered nightmarish
biowizardry torture and was kept as a slave in Splynncrythh's pyramid. Even
though he suffered unmentionable & unthinkable tortures against his person
by the monsters in Splynn. Unlike other slaves he did not resent his situation,
but rather made the most of the opportunities that presented themselves. Being
concerned mainly about enjoying himself, he realized quite quickly that the
higher up the slave/minion ranks he went, the more power and perks he had.
Despite his predicament as a lowly elven slave, he survived, and rose amongst
the rank of slaves in Splynn’s personal retinue. His desire to be free, and
even to strike back at the evil that enslaved him, grew stronger. He got closer
to Splyncryth. He struck out for freedom many times, but as he had been noticed
and chosen by Splyncryth, all his actions were monitored and he was always
captured, each time getting away a little further. His tenacity and sprit had him start training as a warrior
under the tutelage of an ancient conservator known as Warmaster Kaldera (16th
level) and a Kittani known as Warlord Mestron (17th level special
forces). The Conservator had in fact been boosted by a very powerful essence of
Splyncryth, much more than he normally invests in his conservators. This way
Splyncryth kept an eye on him personally.
fought in the various arenas of splynn, Taron began to accompany visitors on
hunts in the preserves led by the Conservators. Then he and the Conservator, and
the Kittani and a special forces team made up of slaves like him were sent to
aid the freedom council ( Phaseworld rebel group, fighting TE), and release some
of their leaders and splugorthian prisoners in the TE prison worlds. This is
when his decade of hell in Slynn paid of. His training to survive in Splynn and
escape from it, added to his training there, proved priceless. For a few years
they helped the freedom council, and rescuing splugortain minions from TE.
A Splugorth lord in the 3 galaxies who was an ally of Splyncrryth had
asked for his help and this was what Splyncrrythh sent.
Splyncryth gain from this is unknown.
he got back to Atlantis, Splyncryth having been impressed by Taron, gave him
minion status, as well as started giving him Biowizardry enhancements. He had
been told that these were new symbiotes found on an alien ship in a dimension
explored by Splyncryths minion, and he was only suitable candidate in his empire
for these symbiotes. He would be gifted with these symbiotes and would be
honoured with minion status, while he searched for more of these symbiotes
across the Megaverse and worked for Lord Splyncryythh. It is correct that he is
highly suited for these symbiotes. but what Splyncryth did not tell him, is that
these symbiotes is just the tip of the iceberg of what the splugorth lords can
do with biowizardry. These symbiotes they reserve
for their most loyal and trusted minions, and only used widely when the splugorths
go to war. This bio
wizardry could be unleashed soon if the Splugorths go on wars of conquest again.
Only the Splugorth Lords of influence know of these symbiotes. Even their High
Lords do not know this biowizardry, and only ancient high lords are even aware
that these symbiotes exist. The splugorth lords only share this biowizardry with
another splugorth lord, when that splugorth reaches a certain status or does
something for the Splugorths.
Splyncryyth was only given this knowledge when he made the Kittani a minion
species of the Splugorth Lords. This knowledge would also have been shared with
him when he brought Atlantis under his dominion.
he got back after a few years, Splyncryth offered him his freedom.
All he had to do was win a 10 man no-respite gauntlet fight in his arena.
About 8 years ago the fight of the millennium as it was billed took place,
broadcast around the megaverse, and the mysterious elf won. Leaving his 9 of his
10 opponents dead. The fight was a challenge by Klyncryytth and his allies to Splyncryyth
and his allies, what was at stake between the Splugorth lords is
unknown. But whereas Klyncryyth sent in his most powerful and enhanced
Conservator as the 10th combatant in the duel, a Conservator more
powerful than many gods, Splyncryythh had chosen Taron.
Disguised, he won, and Splyncrytth gave him his freedom. It is believed
the fight had billions of credits gambled on it across the Megaverse, and the
honour of the Splugorth Lords, who provided their best Warriors for the
Gauntlet. Splyncryyth had chosen him, because he saw a desire for survival in
him that he has not seen for many years. Taron defeated Klyncryytth’s
conservator, both were near death's door. Taron did not give up and his courage hit a
chord amongst the watching monsters, who called for his victory. Kylnncrythh
hearing seeing and hearing this rose and declared the disguised slave a winner
and he would purchase his freedom from Lord Splyncryythh and set him free as the
mortal had clearly earned it. he accepted defeat on his conservators behalf.
What a splugorth lord declares becomes, and so it was that Taron left with all
his treasures and weapons and walked out of Splynn. This was a great gesture on
Klynncryythh behalf, but there was little he could do, the crowd had turned and
backed the disguised mortal and if his conservator died, he would have lost one
of his most powerful essence fragments. Taron won when he should have been in a
coma. But only when his victory was acknowledge did he finally collapse into a
coma. He was healed and set free, with his symbiotes and the wealth, knowledge
and artefacts he had acquired in the service of Splyncryyth.
this time he had changed though, an encounter with an undead slayer in the
preserves who went by the name of Dorlan changed all that. Dorlan was totally
the opposite of Taron, would could have killed him when they hunted him, but how
Dorlan fought and more what he fought for made Taron, let him go, rather than
continue the fight, he stopped fighting and Dorlan escaped before the remaining Splugorth
hunting party reached him. Nothing was made of it, as a mortal slave
was seen as no match for a veteran Undead Slayer.
Taron returned to NGR, he lived in the Black Forest, and he saw the storm
coming, as he realised that both the NGR and their enemies were soon to be in an
all or nothing fight. And the d-bees surrounding the borders were caught in the
middle. With the few people who
came to know him, he saw their desire to resist and be able to fight.
He realised that his fighting for the Freedom Council and hunting in the
Preserves was the ideal experience and way to fight and survive in the Border
areas, when you stuck between a rock and hard place.
is how the semi-nomadic Freebeing Nation was founded, and grew stronger day by
day, to a point where NGR and the Monster empires contemplating recognising it
as a independent state.
Allies: This elves best friend is a woman, a powerful herbalist, druid, who he
met on his travels. He absolutely
adores her, and she absolutely adores him.
Note: This woman is non other than Hecate (see Pantheons of the Megaverse book
for details of her). She has not
risked study of the biowizard symbiotes in case they harm him or more likely the
defences set in place by the Splugorth Lords hurt him. She is not wrong, any
tampering or interference regarding studying these symbiotes, and they will die
and melt into nothing, the link breaking will just kill Taron if he is lucky.
Hecate is very keen to learn more about these symbiotes and the other secrets of
biowizardry and other magics at the disposal of the Splugorth Lords.
Conservator and Kittani warrior are his friends and he sees them as his mentors,
short of Splyncryth personally ordering them to fight him, they will not fight
him, even then they may not kill him, and they will aid him if that help does
not hinder or harm Splyncryth.
will be welcomed as an honoured guest to Splynn, NB: Taron
has no desire to ever set foot in Splynn again.
Splynn will help him especially when it helps Splyncryyth .
Splyncrythh also allows the selling of Atlantean hardware and goods to the
Freebeing Nation through the Black Market, and he will try to influence the
Monster nations not to involve Taron and thereby the Freebeing nation as long as
his hand is not revealed.
Splyncrryth sees the Freebeing Nation as another player in the European arena,
adding spice to the gambling been done. The failure of the NGR surprise attack
on the Monster nations meant large windfalls for Splyncrryyth. The real reason
for Lord Splyncrythhs support for the Freebing nation and Taron maybe due
to the fact that the Tree of Darkness has a portal to a dimension that was
controlled by the Indian Pantheon, but is now in the hands of a rival Splugorth
Lord. Having Taron with a nation at his back, who does not like the
Splugorth much, is a good assurance against the rival Splugorth Lord who may get
ideas about taking a slice of Rifts Earth.

Hecate, Taron has met her friend Herakles, and he has hunted with Artemis many
times in the Black Forest, Atlantis Preserves, The Jungles of the Indian Subcontinent, the Pume homeworld, and even on the Lanotaur Hunter homeworld, and
many others. He is one of the few
peoples who has been to Artemis’ Game Reserve world.
has friends amongst the Warlock Marines who he worked with to help the Freedom
Council, he admires them greatly.
He also knows some Wolfen Qautoria and others from CCW who helped the Freedom
Taron is accompanied by a Shermerrian, which has transferred intelligence into, someone Taron believes must be kept alive at all costs, he also has mutant animals created by Kittani and also biowizardry created mutant animals of Yll Tree climber, Kreeghor bloodhound. Some of these live on Artemis Game Preserve world, but one of each accompanies him. He is also accompanied by a disguised Kittani TW and a Kittani Cleric/Priest of Lord Splynncrytth. Both have been given approval of their leave by the Lord Splynncryyth, though the TW has been told to keep his occupation quite or Lord Splynncrytth will have him killed. Kusen has also assigned a half dozen Kankoran scouts to keep Taron safe. These include amongst them, Broken Toe and Sidekill.
