INKTOBER DAY 1 (DREAM): Ḥayil Ḥolam represents the linguistic “o” vowel in the world of Avgad.
Ḥolam is a rotund sailor whose job is to wage war aboard the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement’s ships. However, he is also a lazy dreamer who spends more time napping with a giant marshmallow pillow, as he claims he needs lots of rest to stay healthy. His sloth has one advantage though — while asleep, Ḥolam dreams of becoming a fierce warrior, and his dreams bring that warrior to life!
INKTOBER DAY 14 (EMPTY): Qir is an evacuated town deep in Bavel territory. The place used to be a bustling spring and oasis, until the day when the shoresh roots burst forth from the earth — and a giant bottomless pit formed in the town square. Like a vacuum, the pit began sucking flimsy homes and palm trees into the void, and the town had to evacuate.
When the Bavel Macrostructure conquered the area, it practiced its construction prowess by building a giant wall made of asphalt and wax to seal off the pit.

The Partitioned Provision Chest supports the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement’s mobilized troops by connecting them with food, medicine, repair materials and intel.
The box accepts a mixture items and automatically sorts them according to use. Generic drugs are in one drawer. Parsley, herbs and sprouts are in another. Metals and dross is placed in another section. Classified files are hidden at the chest’s bottom. A fenced lining keeps the supplies secure.
INKTOBER DAY 12 (FORGET): The Forgotten Men are envoys of the Bavel Macrostructure’s Sons of Darkness. Masters of deception and contradiction, they fight to protect Bavel’s lies and never disappoint. They assist the regime’s black ops, and their camera obscuras delete evidence at the scene and fabricate lies.
Frail and lean, they act reserved and restrained. But when attacking, their aura of sin and evil absorbs an target’s energy, lowers brain frequencies and causes amnesia. They force enemies to deny their most deeply held beliefs. Then they muzzle witnesses and render them speechless.
Some people think that the Forgotten Men only pretend to be obedient to the regime. Still, they bring calamity and oblivion wherever they go. Bargain for your life if you ever see one.
INKTOBER DAY 11 (EAGLE): The Fallout Griffin is an mutant eagle/bobcat/lynx hybrid that developed due to exposure to radioactive fallout. That exposure makes the griffin powerful but clumsy, as it often drops from the sky due to molting too many feathers. While it’s a ferocious predator, its favorite food is fruit.
