Shazun Zhuu, Hyperborean Noble

(I’ve run several Astonishing ACKS sessions online since my last adventure logs; here’s a recent addition to the party – a Hyperborean Noble restored from hibernation.)

Shazun ZhuuA young scion of a lesser Hyperborean noble house, Shazun Zhuu showed sufficient promise as a courtier and fleshcrafter to advance in station. In time, she became a liaison on a secret research project for her family…

…Or at least, that’s what she remembers. Days ago, Shazun was released from centuries of suspended hibernation by a motley crew of degenerate sub-men who refer to themselves as “Murderhobos”. Using her skills and wiles, she has managed to survive thus far in this strange new world.

Now, reading through her personal spellbook, Shazun has come across passages that she cannot recall writing but scribed in her own hand. The last entry reads:

“Despite the ministrations of the Fleshcrafters, I succumb to the Green Death. I am spawning a clone using the most recent pre-infection sample. Hopefully in rebirth I can forestall the Fall of Zhuu.”
