Yeshoms are the undead remnants of aranean mages who sought power, got it, and
paid too high a price. In its normal form, the yeshom resembles a large puddle
of oily, black tar. Yeshoms came into being about 1,500 years ago, when a
group of Harazam mages cooperated in an effort to gain immortality, augment
the natural shapechanging abilities of the aranean race, and gain additional
spellcasting power. Their research effort succeeded in all three of these
goals, discovering a method by which a powerful aranea could be transformed
into a new form with vastly greater power. A number of Harazam's best and
finest mages volunteered for the treatment and were transformed into yeshoms,
before the process's horrible side effects were discovered.At first, the
Harazam volunteers were able to retain their original alignments through force
of will. However, the undead form carried a subtle evil warping influence,
which slowly made the yeshoms psychotic and bitter. All of them eventually
became insane, humanoid-hating recluses.
