The Fleshwrought were once human beings. Once, but no more. Their bodies were left behind on alien planes by their comrades, abandoned within unwholesome places by circumstance or design, or otherwise lost to the forces beyond the comforting boundaries of the mortal world. There they were found by the prowling hound-things of Varug and subjected to the foul ministrations of his bone-masked minions. The flesh of these forlorn and fallen adventurers has been remolded in mad and bizarre ways, restructured to eliminate their faces, extinguish their former identity, and to make them fitting slaves to the Keepers of the Bone Cages and the Lords of Squirmkeep.

The Fleshwrought are called forth by use of a variation of the Conjure Servitor spell:

Conjure Fleshwrought Servitor
Level: 4
Duration: 1d6 rounds per hit point sacrificed
Range: 10' per level of caster

This spell can only be cast if there is a sufficient amount of living flesh arranged within the Six Nested Hexagons chalked on a suitable flat surface. None of the extant sources give any hints as to what constitutes 'a sufficient amount' of flesh, so one must use their ingenuity or invest some time and effort trying to get that worked out through divination, interrogation or whatever means gets best results.

Fleshwrought Servitors called forth by this spell are not brought under the control of the summoner; that requires another spell, rite or device...or special dispensation from Varug or his cult.

If the caster has possession of one of the authentic Amber and Bone Orbs of Kilushak from before the grievous inundation, they are said to gain the option to call forth stronger Fleshwrought Servitors than usual by a simple expenditure of one's personal hit points at a rate of one hit point granting 1d4 additional hit points to the conjured servitor. Of course, those servitors that have higher HD than the summoner's level as a spell-caster tend to be much more difficult to control and have been known to devour the one who called them forth as it was far easier than the task they were assigned.
