    br0ken_spirit:
    concept: The Reaper's Familiar
    While Death is busy with his daily routine of crossing souls over into the afterlife, there are those who are not yet ready to be taken. The Reaper has a pet, a ghastly creature who acts as his Messenger. This Messenger meets those who for a moment face mortal peril but do not know it. He informs them that they are near of dying, but that it is not their turn yet to be taken, and so they must wait. He acomplishes this with his grotesque appearence, which usually is enough to frighten away from the dangerous situation the soul in question has wandered into. Though he looks menacing, he is harmless.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    goran:
    concept: After a complete endoplazmatic breakdown of the parasite retrieved the opinion of This direktorate that the parasite is not of terrestrial origin. The cellular properties are found only in the blood of extensive Martian beer drinkers.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    scumgrinder:
    concept: october 17, 2018
    Sender:
    Warden Moses Goldman <wmgoldman@meir.com>
    Recipient:
    All [send/-->all{get.address.spider}]
    Shalom!
    If everything goes as planned, we will unleash Kochot tomorrow.
    During the tests we noticed the mutation of fauna caused by Kochot's toxic cloud:
    one, the Basser flies, which are generated by kochot's dermis' mitochondria and the sail moths which mutated into filter feeders to catch the large numbers of Basser flies. They grow as big as a horse and since they fly outside of Kochot's toxic cloud, they can be seen minutes before Kochot reaches the area.
    These messengers of death won't behave aggressively.
    Let them be your warning to ready your gas masks and your suits.
    Yasher koach
    great work, all.
    END OF MESSAGE

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: The messenger of death is an enormous creature that appears from the clouds once every few hundred years. No one knows where they live or where they come from but when they arrive, they bring with them the death of thousands. The messenger of death releases thousands of hatchlings to feed upon the souls of the living. These hatchlings enter the body and begin to feed until thier translucent skin becomes a hard carapace, then they retreat back to the sky from which they came.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hideyoshi:
    concept: Here comes your most terrifying nightmare in the form of the "Messenger of Death" with its multilayered rows of razor-sharp teeth and biomechanical inlays (for whatever reasons) ready to spread its lethal "spores of eternal sleep" onto every unaware victim.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Carnifex:
    concept: If you hear a slow,whiny howl in some desert area,you're likely to have stumbled upon a Messenger of Death.He is a scavenger known to travel all the land in search of fallen prey.When he finds it and rests to eat,the wind will blow through the little holes in the spikes on his back,which causes the ghostly howl you'll hear.Some assume these little holes help him cooling the air he breathes in,in those hot desert areas he favours. During travel,he will have them shut so as not to waste energy.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    draw:
    concept: THE MESSENGER OF DEATH is often mistaken for a beautiful parrot but this harbinger of death was brought into existence by the egyption God Ra. He is the end of all those it meets.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Simonl:
    concept: The Storm Albatross is known as the Messenger of Death by the fishermen of the Oval Sea, who know that the bird's appearance in the skies means that the deadly storm season is not far off.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Xpose:
    concept: The Deathworm is an usher to death. It sprays you with a stench, to mark you. Then the hellhound comes after your soul to bring you straight to hell. The Deathworm feeds on the last breaths of each of their victims. Elderly should beware.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    redehlert:
    concept: The Malodourian: messenger of death
    The Malodourian. Say it with me: Male-odor-e-n. Good job!
    This hallitosis hellion hunts rock-burrowing grubs, deep within the cavernous labyrinths of Sillolith. The grubs, drawn to the transient bad breath expelled by the Malodourian, come out of their lairs as if hypnotized, ready to be devoured. This creature's pungent odor is essentially a "messenger of death" which, to the grubs, is always welcome.
    A side note: The hungrier and more stressed the Malodourian is, the more foul rotten egg smell the breath is.
    Next week, we'll discuss the Malodourian's "morning breath" for mating.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Zeitwolf:
    concept: Seelensammler - the soul collector
    The Soul Collector has a ghostly body that can pass through all kind of matter with ease. Its permanent companions are timepieces and dozens of crows or vultures. Its many (partly visible) brains imbedded in its extremity-less body know everything about everybodies lifes and deaths; he eats the souls of the deads and carries them for a while on its tail.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Teal:
    concept: When someone wants to die and his time did'nt come yet, the Messenger of Death appears. It can not kill until it's master allows, but it plays with the deathwilling pearson in the way he will remember for eternity and certainly won't be calling Death again while standing far from the end of the line.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Partialartist:
    concept: A Pony Express mailman and his horse were killed by Indians who he wronged. The Devil merged them and tasked them with bartering with souls in Purgatory. Basically, in enchange for sending one message to someone who is still living, they must agree to move to Hell.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    flatliner:
    concept: Death is a powerful entity, but he is not omniscient. In order carry out his duty he requires the help of a great many creatures. None more so than the Nuntiusqes, The Messenger's of Death. This Creature, brought forth from the nether world by his majesty, is capable of moving in and out our space with great ease, in order to watch the mortal souls. When a soul is ready to pass, it returns to its master, taking word that a soul is ripe for collection. Death then takes heed and comes to welcome the soul into the next world.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    panda:
    concept: The death messenger - this little parasite crawls into your ear and feeds off of the waves emanating from your brain. However, it is much more dangerous than your average brainleech, for it literally devours the brain in its quest for thoughts. It saves the worst thoughts for last, and your final thoughts will be of death as it devours the remainder of your gray matter.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Brand_X:
    concept: Swimming through the ethereal sea like a demonic angler fish a Messenger of Death searches for the unmistakable psychic patterns that surround the death of a sentient creature.
    When it detects such an event the MoD extends a ecto-luminescent tentacle into the quasi phased space inhabited by the soul of the recently departed.
    If the spirit of the deceased makes the mistake of "going into the light" it is drawn into the ethereal and devoured.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    gorillagrin:
    concept: These Messengers are burdened with the duty of collecting the souls of the dying for safe transport to their next destination. They manifest themselves only during the few moments before death, and even then only unto the dying individual. They gently gather the soul with their long, tendril-like appendages and place them inside their body for safekeeping. As the body fills, the gelatinous sac inside expands until it can hold no more - at which point it's time for the Messenger to make its dropoff.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    misledtomisery:
    concept: Aptly named the Mesenger of Death, this creature has never left an eye-witness alive. Every single documented description of the beast has been similar, as well as the fortune of the authors. Seeing this creature is a sure sign of death, occurring no more than 2 days after a sighting.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    element412:
    concept: When your time as come, the Messenger of death arrives, he is like your normal Fedex guys... but in less mmmh normal. With all the people dying today, The Other World gotta have good archives, so sign the form to confirm your death. Sign it, cause he will make you sign it if you don't want. When you see that guy, it's already too late.
    ps. yeah i know.. they should upgrade to a network database... but there's not enough death programmer you know... so they still use paper for now..in a couple of decade your just gonna e-mail your form.. but oh well.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    JakkaS:
    concept: Joratt Bible
    Tome 13, Section 7
    "...And then The Gods realized how weak people are, how easy the Evil affects people makeing them weak and faithless. So there came the Messengers of Death to the Earth to cure humanity of plague. Those, who never feel fear, who never can be stoped, made to sperate darkness from light..."
    - - - - -
    Messenger of Death is a bird-like creature that possess souls of weaked people. Every murderer and psycho is awake of Messenger Of Death's existence. When the death comes, it shows itself to grab a soul of the damned. Puts possessed spirit into "Pond of Lost", where it stays forever. There is no way back to Earth, like another incarnation... Mark below an eye is considered to be the only sign of regret that can be made - sad joke of Gods.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BlkCelebration:
    concept: Falleser
    A beast from the underworld, the Falleser's sole purpose is to notify great warriors of good that they have been marked for death by the dark lord. When Falleser reaches its objective a coffin in bright red shines on its chest. This is a symbol that can easily be understood by the victims.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    bumskee:
    concept: Messenger of death is a small flying creature from the chaos, it is used by the demons to mark the coming death of their prey. This creature weaves trails of thin red silk to guide the demons.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GreenTopaz:
    concept: Simply known as 'the Messengers', these creatures are something of a visible form of prophecy. They shadow people who are soon to die, ready to escort them to the underworld. How closely a Messenger follows indicates how soon you will die, from any number of causes. This, naturally, causes some trouble, as there are some who cause their own death simply because they panic at the sight of one and trip up trying to escape it. Because of this, Messengers make attempts to hide from their quarrys until their time is upon them, but admittedly they don't usually do a very good job of it, being so big (behind trash cans, in the grass, etc.? doesn't work). It's widely debated on whether the odd things can be truly avoided, but normally, people who catch a glimse (or more, 99% of the time) have just learned to get on with what life they have left, depressing as it is.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    rasdasa:
    concept: Death is a lazy muther fucker... she is also an insecure muther fucker. She doesn't get off her throne for any reason but to plow through royalty, so she carries her voice through her desciples.
    Of course, they only know service of the dark.
    They do not hate for their hearts have long been corroded by the tears of their unwilling tasks...*in a whisper* but they can't stop smiling...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    mysterian:
    concept: Hathlua té Quirnn, the Messenger of Death who's imminent presence is only preceded by it's gut wrenching stench, silently ascends from the sky to pluck hapless victims. Bone and flesh are consumed quickly in a fury of gnashing teeth and snapping gristle, and the soul's essence is secured in one of two small vials which are tethered to the entity by cords of sinew and cartilage. There are but a few moments of utter bewilderment after consumption of the body in which the beast can manipulate the soul to the vials. The mere touch of a bared soul is instant death to the creature and during this brief moment of transition the soul is weak enough to enable the beast to capture it. The Messenger is forever bound to it's nemesis unless it transports and releases them into the eternal confinement of either Heaven or Hades. The beast cares not which soul goes where,... so just hope that it's closest to your desired destination when it comes for you.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    JeffZNY:
    concept: These cowardly scavengers rarely reveal themselves to living eyes, preferring to lurk in the shadows until the lure of death and decay draws them from their burrows. Their appearance is a sign that the stink of death can not be far off.
