Dagrith, the Ascended One

In ancient times the Drow revered the Dargrith as ascended ones, and was a ritual given unto dying Kings and Queens in what was thought as a process that reserved them. This tradition eventually gave out after one such Queen ate her entire court, but some Drow still hold reverence over these creatures. Much to their own dismay at times.

In reality the Dargrith is a parasite, one born initially from a single worm that if ingested will begin to grow within the digestive system of its host, until their guts have expanded and the parasite bursts upward, effectively bisecting and killing its host while retaining control of the remaining nervous system to command its legs and any other remaining limbs. Once it has reached this stage it is known as the “Ascended” and begins its mature lifecycle of endless hunger. As each creature is devoured by the Dargrith, its mass grows, but so too does its hunger, exponentially.

At some point if left unchecked a Dargrith will grow so large that it can no longer support itself, as its hunger is unquenchable. It is here that the Dargrith enters the final stage of its lifecycle as it begins breaking itself down, eating itself to stave off hunger while doing irreparable damage to its own body. In this stage the Dargrith will begin excreting thousands of worms, its offspring to continue the cycle, though most will die before they get the chance. Here in the final throes the Dargrith will complete the cycle after it consumes the last few limbs and bodies that remain in its mass, and it dies. Thus the best way to ensure no cycle continues is killing the creature before it can reach such a gargantuan size, using ice to break away its frozen bodies.

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

The information below applies to most products on this site. Any exceptions will be noted in the individual item descriptions.

Size references (Medium, Large, Huge, etc.) are done at a 28mm(1″) scale using standard D&D rules. This means that minis will have a size commensurate with the diameter of their base:

  • Small/Tiny – 1″ diameter base or smaller (depends on the mini)
  • Medium – 1″ diameter base
  • Large – 2″ diameter base
  • Huge – 3″ diameter base
  • Gargantuan – typically uses a 4″ diameter base. If the base size is different, it will be noted in the listing.

32mm (heroic scale) miniatures may have bases that are slightly larger.

75mm (display scale) miniatures will typically have a base that is around 3″. Models in this size will have their actual dimensions in their description

  • Product images may include renders, special effects, and/or custom paint that may not be indicative of the received product. We will be adding actual photos of the printed objects as we produce them. If you would like us to send a photo of anything in our shop that doesn’t already have one prior to shipping, please let us know and we’ll be happy to oblige.
  • Unless otherwise specified, all products are 3d-printed in gray with either an ABS-like resin or PLA. This ensures the products are durable but still hold their detail
  • We still recommend handling the products with care as many have very fine, delicate features that can still be easily broken
  • Because of the production process, there may be slight variations, indentations, or rough edges that need to be cleaned up before use/painting
  • Some models require assembly, which may involve sanding, filing, and/or fillers for gaps and seams
  • Dice towers are printed hollow with 2.5mm thick walls. This is to ensure that we are able to provide them at a reasonable price but still have enough strength to hold up to use and packing/unpacking at the gaming table.
  • We perform a thorough inspection of every product before it’s shipped to ensure that it is something that we would be proud to display on our own tables.
