Annoad are the enigmatic, secretive leaders of the ogdoad race. While they hold sway over their subjects’ fates, it is uncertain whether they themselves serve other beings in turn. Their swords hold special significance to them, and stealing such a blade or taking one by force is sure to bring the wrath of all ogdoad upon the thief.

Annoad rely heavily upon their spell-like abilities, although they are fierce warriors as well. They invariably call upon other ogdoad to assist them before engaging dangerous opponents.


Ogdoad Lords
To speak of a ruler of such an entropic race is difficult, but there is a hierarchy present from nunnoad to annoad ogdoad, and the annoad themselves pay homage to higher beings from poorly defined depths of Limbo, hard-won from the proteans or perhaps divided by treaty. Though names are whispered at, the titles Anuüra the Diver, Boekurg (Leader of the Ogdoad-Old One alliance), and Hegget, a fertility demigod among the grippli are most well-known.
