From Open Perpetuum


Ruthless, methodical, merciless, unyielding - these are the hallmarks of the Gropho, one of the largest expressions of the Pelistal Empire’s strength. Although not the ultimate power in the Pelistal Empire, no Nian - Theolodican or Nuimqol - dismisses the power of the Gropho’s fusillades. Even the Gropho’s masters recognize the power of their subjects, and are mindful of it, as a kennel owner is of its most dangerous dog.
