Here's some new art by Loston Wallace for a little Weird Adventures project for Gen Con. This is Waxy Moldoon. His story illustrates how fortune and failure can sometimes go hand and hand in the City. Waxy was a sadsack wiseguy wannabe, until an chance meeting with Mr. Scratch (if there's such a thing) left him something more--and less--than human. Waxy's flesh seems to be melting--slowly. A touch of his uncovered flesh can pass his condition on to others, in a more acute form. Anybody touched by Waxy who fails a saving throw will find his or her flesh beginning to liquify. Success at a second saving throw means the liquification stops a point where the victim is still alive, though not much more than a lumpen mass. Failure means the victim dies leaving only a puddle. The process takes d100 hours.
Waxy's power has gotten him closer to being the big shot he always wanted to be. He's got soldiers behind him, and he's an up and comer in the City's underworld, but he still isn't happy. Everybody Waxy's touch sends oozing into oblivion is another reminder just what maybe waiting for him one day.
