The Erenel site is undergoing major changes and lore updates. Please note only articles listed in the Gamingbrew Discord are finalized. All other articles should be considered outdated lore.
Yig Nachal, the Thousand Eyed Spider, gazes deeply at Erenel from the Black Sea of Void. Often mistaken for a Spider God by the ignorant, Yig Nachal has held an interest to Erenel even before the Great Sacrifice. The Thousand Eyed Spider is thought to be the most aggressive of the Null. However, this belief is often attributed to the ease of finding traces of Yig Nachal in a community. Typically documented accidentally, dust-covered tomes speak of strange occurrences involving eyes found growing across the brain of the deceased. The true motives of a Null are generally unknown, for who can adequately understand an aberration of madness. But with Yig Nachal, the motive seems ingrained in his babbling cultists - weave the oculus web so they can truly see. A terrifying string of new documentation has recently leaked from the Royal College. Over the past decade, more and more beasts have been found with varying amounts of eyes growing across their brain and brain stem. Recently more unfortunate beasts have been seen with their brain hemorrhaging and bursting from their skull, acting incoherent and violent. The only remedy seems to be detaching the brain from the body.
