Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
“If anything about imps could be called subtle, it’s that they are quietly the most complicated non-kith creatures of Eora. They speak our tongues, follow complex instructions, and have enough awareness to possess a sense of self and free will that defies the intellect of their primordial peers. Partnered with their latent ability to grow in proportion to the magical energies their bodies absorb, one would not be mistaken for concluding that imps are the rightful masters of their environment.

So why aren’t they?

Much of our lore presumes that imps are a byproduct - little more than foul-mouthed pigeons formed of arcane runoff. Some of us believe this to be anything but the case. Ledgers recovered from early Woedican temples give more credit to these unloved creatures, referring to them in footnotes as ‘the Firsts’ or ‘the Fallen.’ Some have gone on to speculate that imps are the gods’ discarded attempt to create life.

This account will spearhead my academic crusade to prove the value of imps, who deserve a fair shake from we who have spent our careers underestimating their worth.”
