is reimagined as Doguu
The thing known as the Doguu has existed since the ancient past. Where it goes, destruction follows in its wake.
The Doguu is a living creature of baked clay, the culmination of a dying culture's considerable spiritual arts. It can be cracked and broken, but it always reforms, for its essence resides in a curse on the land itself. The mysterious civilization that gave it life has fallen, and its secrets are now lost to the ages, but the Doguu remains.
To some it makes promises of great powers, but these promises are naught but ashes of a ruined world. The obliteration of all things is its timeless goal.
