The First Men, also known as the Nephilim were giant (7 to 8’ tall) humans that once ruled the continent of Europa. They were harsh rulers, and servants of Chaos. After many years of oppression, and their own fall into decadence, the human tribes of the Keltoi and Gauls overthrew their masters and drove them from the lands. Many think they sailed west past the Misty Isles of Brittanica, however many think they were simply killed or perished.
Some few First Men still exist in isolated pockets and practice their foul magicks for the Chaos Lords. It was the First Men who created the foul Brood, chaos tainted beast-men that haunt old ruins and deep forests of Normandie.

# Appearing: 1
Some (25% chance) First Men are able to cast spells as a 5th level magic-user.
The Brood are foul chaos tainted beast men originally created as servants to the Sorcerous First Men. They are goat-headed humanoids who thrive on bloodletting and torture of humans. Some are carriers of pestilence and disease.
# Appearing: 2-20
When attacked by a Brood, there is a 25% chance that his weapon is covered in filth and pestilence, if the roll is less that 25 on d100, the target must make a saving throw vs. poison or be infected with a pox. The pox will reduce the character’s CON score by 1 immediately and then 1 CON per day until the character’s CON reaches 0 (and the character dies), or a Cure Serious Wounds is cast upon him.
