Description

The Kazar demons use the Kazarak as their primary pawns on this plane. Finding it difficult to physically manifest themselves here, they choose instead to take over the bodies of others, forming a permanent bond between a demon's spirit and the host body.

The bond that ties the Kazar demon to the host kazarak is of krystallaturgic origin. It robs the host of their life, leaving them a murmuring husk of their original self, but in exchange grants them partial use of many of the powers of the Kazar.

Spoiler warning: information below includes details, such as solutions to puzzles or quest procedures, that you may prefer to discover on your own.

Location

The Kazarak do not have a guildhall, but through brute force the Kazar have created a pillar that allows them access to this world so that they can claim a body. This pillar is at 12, -12, 0 in Ebira

Joining

Stand next to pillar. The Kazar are not particularly picky about what bodies they inhabit, though they do reject Ringwielders.

  You feel a probing sensation somewhere deep within yourself.
  The probing sensation intensifies, bringing with it a slight feeling of queasiness and discomfort.
  The probing sensation grows stronger, causing you some degree of physical distress as you begin 
  to struggle for breath.
  You feel as though you are in great danger.
  You feel a slight burning sensation upon your skin as thin glowing lines begin to appear.
  You are now a first-degree specialist in crystal affinity, evocation, krystallaturgy
  pain tolerance, power direction, power tuning, resilience, and steadiness.
  You are now a fifth-degree specialist in Hrrnmrhrr.
  The glowing green lines on your body grow larger and more complex, now covering your entire form 
  with an interlocking pattern of runes.
  You feel your awareness dim as some malevolent intelligence invades your mind and body, snuffing
  out your life force.
  Your experience a brief surge of terror and bewilderment in your last instants before your
  consciousness is abruptly devoured by the formless horror, which then assumes control of your
  body.
  The glowing green runes on your body become translucent, changing in color to a softly
  luminescent whitish-gray.
  At last, your opportunity has come to be given a Kazarak body, one of the mortal shells altered
  by the power of the Kazarin to permit your bodiless people to inhabit it.  No more shall you
  exist formlessness, burning with envy of the embodied; now let the world beware, for a kazar
  walks upon it.

Note that your alignment is changed to "diabolic" upon joining. Kazarak Generation Code

Help

The Kazar demons use the kazarak as their primary pawns on
this plane.  Finding it difficult to physically manifest themselves
here, they choose instead to take over the bodies of others,
forming a permanent bond between a demon's spirit and the host
body.
  The bond that ties the Kazar demon to the host kazarak is of
geoturgic origin.  It robs the host of their life, leaving them
a murmuring husk of their original self, but in exchange grants
them partial use of many of the powers of the Kazar.
  Full summaries of the effects of the kazarak bond are given
in 'help kazarak powers', 'help kazarak limitations', and 'help kazarak skills'.
 

Pillar

  The focus of all of the kazaraks' bonds is the crystal pillar through which energies flow to the Kazarin Overmind. 
  Energy Contributions to the Collective are made by touching magical items to the pillar and allowing their energies to be drained.
 
  Members of the Kazarak or Kazarzeth may withdraw energy from the pillar by concentrating on withdrawing energy from the Kazarin; 
  however,doing so recklessly may be hazardous, and those concerned about their long-term existence would also be well-advised to periodically 
  check their status with the Kazarin by concentrating on discerning the status of their energy contributions to the Kazarin.
