The Dead Lands of Athas
Fallen Legionnaires are the spirits of dead warriors who died unjustly, were sacrificed in battle, or who have been created by other fallen. The disaster that created the Dead Lands also spawned hordes of such undead, many of whom once served under the Champions of Rajaat.
The fallen appear almost as they did in life and from a distance could be mistaken as a patrol of soldiers. Up close, they betray their true nature: blasted bodies bearing gruesome wounds and shattered armor. All have pale white, glowing eyes. Some manifest more visible indications of their deaths, bodies wreathed in flame, flesh like obsidian, skeletons blackened. Fallen may share a mindlink with one another, forming a tightly organized unit.
Fallen use the weapons and armor they did in life, and remember the same tactics and strategies. Most work in groups that thirst for battle and the chance to recruit new undead for their legions. Powerful fallen sometime challenge the group’s leader for authority.
