The Age of Worms
Pasty-skinned, lisping, and foul associate of Smenk’s with a living necklace he refers to as “my little hunter-seeker.” Also keeps a man–shaped, doll–sized conglomeration of oozing, pussing organs and flesh he calls “my little fetcher–gatherer.” Kullen promised Tyrrell to him as a boy-toy during his stay in Diamond Lake, but Tyrrell bailed on the job, leaving Skutch to take his place. Merovinn and Todrik told the party Filge was creating a “feast of zombies” in the Old Observatory of Diamond Lake. Filge surrendered to the party on 22 Patchwall 595, after they killed his pets and did him serious physical damage. He told them he had been invited to Diamond Lake by Smenk, who wanted his help preparing a defense against the Cult of the Ebon Triad, and the Spawn of Kyuss they are creating in the Dourstone Mine. According to Scar-Eater, Filge is a “Dread Necromancer,” a spontaneous-casting arcanist that specializes in necromancy. They are able to channel negative energy and deliver it as a touch attack. Over time, they can do other things with that negative energy – stunning, blasting it in waves, etc. Also, they quickly gain damage reduction like that of a lich as they march down the inevitable road to undeath. Filge kept a diary which revealed his resentment towards the Greyhawk Guild of Wizards (who denied him entry) and someone named Godfrey, who had apparently jilted him.
