This month’s collection explores the remnants of the Sommos Empire, which was destroyed through the political machinations of the Ryujin. As the nearest and most powerful neighbours to the Mikata, the Ryujin were invested in making sure the amphibious fish empire didn’t get too influential, while also seeking to exploit their resources. The Sommos, now a scattered people, have never forgotten their former glory. Even though hundreds of years have passed, and their once-unified lands are now broken into rogue encampments and isolated villages preyed upon by lawless roving bandits, they still hunger for the day when their Empire will become whole again.
Orchamus the Jow Warlord, and his advisor Gishima the Mago Tidecaller, are dead set on reuniting the Sommos. The most successful warlord in hundreds of years, it seems like Orchamus might become a real threat to the Ryujin’s plans. Many Sommos are flocking to his banners, including Jow Veterans who keep the traditions of the old Empire Warriors, and even humble fishermen riding their Kyokas to go see this new hero. Some have even brought the baby Kyokas they’re raising, perhaps to become trained war mounts for the cause (or just for companionship).
Our bases and terrain pack this month was sculpted by Kittifizz, Calrais, and Karurosu, and will provide plenty of flavor to base your water-themed minis!
Stats will be coming for December’s minis pretty soon (we’re just reviewing them and getting them formatted), courtesy of Conflux Creatures and OddballOwlbear! If you haven’t seen Conflux Creatures before, he writes a truly astounding number of stat blocks every month, and if you like homebrew D&D, you should definitely check out his patreon.
As usual, I’m including the lore for this particular collection below, but you can read more about the CobraMode Universe in our 40+ page Lore doc, the CobraCompendium: https://bit.ly/3om6snO
It also includes a numbered listing of every collection (at the very end of the doc), for all those completionists out there.
