Rendlings are born from obscure, unknowable elements and magics. Biological fluids and materials from the body of the gods combine with errant magics, or unfortunate wild animals, to become monstrosities that prowl the dark. Rendlings can be broken down into three main forms, but more exist.
Created during The Seven Day War
, and then allowed to incubate for months in the smoking battlefield afterwards. These Rendlings are pure magic energy, given physical form from the blood of slain gods. Monsters of this variety are terrifying due to their ability to sense auras, change form rapidly, and "absorb" victims.
Limbs? Too many. Form? Uncanny. Faunal Rendlings come from the unfortunate combination of ill-fated wildlife straying into a pile of Godly remains -- be it pools of divine blood, bits of godly flesh, or anything in between. The materials from the gods take over and warp the wildlife into a monstrous version of its self; it retains all of its animalistic urges but has its ferocity increased tenfold. Faunal Rendlings are highly feared due to their propensity to hunt humans -- and the skill in which they do this.
The third most common, and yet most terrifying of the main forms of Rendlings. Deific Rendlings are born purely out of torn limbs and large scraps of godly flesh leftover from the Seven Day War. This category of Rendling took the longest to come into existence; incubating in ancient battlefields for hundreds of years, before emerging fully formed. These Rendlings are nigh impossible to kill and can come in seemingly any shape or size. If one does manage to kill a Deific Rendling, the kill is almost always immortalized in songs and stories across all of Cathedris.
