Translucently pale bronze-orange and flabby, the Walmakash are not very threatening in appearance. But only a fool would consider them weak or defenseless. The Walmakash have an in-born affinity for magic and sorcery of nearly all types, sorts and styles. They travel the planes and time-lines of the Paraverse in search of obscure spells, forgotten relics, arcane apparatus and bizarre mechanisms that perhaps it would be better no one meddled with...

The Walmakash are invertebrate sorcerers from a distant plane searching for magic items and magic weapons that they might have heard about in the course of their travels. It is alleged by certain scholars and sages that the Walmakash require these things to earn the support of their patrons or mentors. Those who return with the best and most powerful items gain prestige, access to otherwise secret spells and other benefits. Only one non-Walmakash has ever dared to approach the Distant Masters of this alien race. No one is exactly sure just what happened to them. But there are those who would dearly like to know. Likewise, no one is entirely sure why, or how, the Walmaksh have entered Zalchis, nor how they intend to salvage the things they have gathered there..

Walmakash will collect journals and spell books, even scrolls, but they do not need to read them to use them. They have the ability to retrieve and memorize any spell within a 10' radius. If they attempt to do this in the course of combat, it counts as their one attack. Usually this will only be used out of desperation in combat, but outside of battle, it is an ability that they use extensively and often.

A typical Walmakash can cast Detect Magic, Read Magic and Clairvoyance at will. They also have a number of unique spells, items and areas of expertise that will be further detailed in additional posts.
