Shorthand description of this would be “The God of Black Metal.” A savage, monstrous god that delights in spreading misfortune and subjugating the weak. When I designed him I set about creating a representation of the “cruel” side of the wilderness; something that is not ambivalent but genuinely sadistic. A true villain that exists in the Wilds.
If you don’t already know, you can learn more about The Ruin, other factions and 240 pages of similar content in my upcoming book “Into the Wyrd and Wild,” which drops this Dec. 3rd on Kickstarter! I will be running Early-Bird specials so make sure to set a reminder and mark your calendars!
