HEROES OF IMPILTUR
The heroes encountered this impish creature in the ruins of the Hucan Empire. Fistem had succeeded in duping Hucan the Saffron Son into believing that he was his friend. Fistem manipulated the innocent boy into using his incredible powers to create dangerous “toys” and other types of mischief. Fistem cleverly managed to turn some of these weapons loose against the army of Impiltur when Hucan wasn’t paying attention to them any more. The heroes confronted Fistem in front of Hucan. During the battle Fistem’s evil nature was exposed when he conjured an unholy, black hand. That and the cards cast by Sevenia led the party to believe that he was a devil in the service of Bane. The battle ended with Tsol chopping the creature’s minuscule body in half and the heroes could see the shadow of a gigantic beast escape from within then fade into the shadows. From somewhere unseen, the squeaky voice of Fistem morphed into a booming baritone that said, “Curse you meddling fools. I will make you pay for this.” Given Bane’s intolerance for failure that threat seems questionable.
