Background

Reneg Desrek was destined to be a Druid. Well, not be Destiny, capital D, but because his father and mother had both been Druids and he was expected to become one as well. They taught him everything he should know about being a Druid and though he hadn’t really wanted to be one [a Bard seemed more much DASHING, a Paladin seemed much more awe-inspiring, and a Barbarian was fearsome], but he sort of ended up being one anyways because he was sort of lazy at heart. That’s probably why he enjoyed summoning companions so much. Why do the work when an animal could do it for him?

Of course this had gotten him into trouble into the past. Why were there claw marks all over the furniture? Well, the grizzly bear was trying to rearrange. Why were so many of the dishes broken? The dog wasn’t well capable of taking the dishes from the sink and licking them on his own, but he sure had tried. Quite impressive indeed, actually, though his parents of course were NOT impressed.

Still, they couldn’t help but feel a little bit if pride for their son. Despite this lazy streak, he had managed to find a cute girl, a bookish girl who everyone said was evil but Reneg was sure she was just rebelling against her parents like he had. It wasn’t his fault he had gotten her pregnant. Well, maybe it was. At least he hoped it was! When she disappeared, he blamed his parents. He didn’t know why he blamed them; it was just a natural instinct to blame them for his problems. They told him he didn’t know where his girlfriend was. Frustrated, he set out from home in search of his pregnant girlfriend].

As a going away present, they gave him a rock. Can you believe that? A ROCK? Supposedly it was a Stone of Alarm. If he attached it to something and someone touched it, it alerted him to the presence of an intruder. That was apparently how his grandfather had met his grandmother. That was a story he certainly hadn’t wanted to know, but his parents said it was a good-luck charm and he should take it with him. He figured he might as well. It may come in handy, after all.

Reneg speaks Common, Draconic, Druidic, and Sylvan.

Description

Sheyla stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 112 pounds. She is 127 years old. Her long, silverblonde hair is worn open, a few strands of hair framing the fine-featured face with emerald eyes. Her slender figure is dressed in comfortable green clothes, on top of which she wears her finely crafted chain shirt. The holy symbol of Corellon Larethian is attached to a simple silver chain around her neck. Along with her small backpack and a grey-green cloak, she wears two crossed sheathes on her back, holding her longswords. Her darkwood longbow is slung over her shoulder and a quiver with arrows is hanging from her weapon belt. A buckler is sometimes strapped to her left arm, on which she also wears a silver bracelet, which is covered in flames, that apparantly do not burn her, shedding light equivalent to that of a torch.

Background

Hailing from the Kingdom of the Silver Leaves in the northern parts of the Great Forest of Harqual in the Northern Heartlands, Sheyla grew up in peace, learning the arts of swordplay and archery. But peace never endures, and her homelands were constantly threatened by attacks of humanoid warbands. When Sheyla was considered mature, she became a cleric of Corellon Larethian, to be able to help and protect her kin. The ideals he stands for, have long been her own as well, so it was just a natural progression.

Sheyla speaks Common, Elven and Celestial.

What Sheyla knows about the World

You have traveled a lot through the eastern lands of Harqual duirng your adventuring career. You known the Great Forest of your homeland well and have many friends and family members still living there. The leader of the Kingdom of the Silver Leaves is an elf man named Menkhar Silversun, the High One of Silverleaf. He has lead your people since the time of the Ogre Wars. He is renown as a hero to your people.

You have visited the elves living in the Duchy of Minar to the northwest of the Strandlands. They were welcoming to you and your companions but they seemed a little strange to you. Many of them live more like humans than elves. Many of them are exiles of the Knotwood, which has fallen to hordes of demons and blood elves.

You have also heard of the rise of great religious leader in the lands west of where you are now, past the Thunder Mountains. He is said to be the chosen of his god, the North God known as Jalivier.

You know their is a land of semi-civilized barbarians just north of the Strandlands and have heard rumors of city-states in the Far South. You quickly learned that the Thunder Mountains are filled with mountain orcs and worse. You’ve even fought some of them.

Toryn_inked_small
Toryn Stonecutter (Artwork created by steeldragons)

Born into a family of stonemasons, Toryn learned the typical dwarven crafts then joined the militia at the earliest possible age to escape a life of endless mining. The dwarven military pushed him towards engineering, munitions and surveying; occupations that would keep him safe and useful in the clanhold.

Unfortunately his platoon was decimated by a gang of ogres, and Toryn escaped with a battered body and a broken nose. Toryn was thrilled to be alive so he took up the craft of the warrior and became a menace on the battlefield.

After his 12 year tour he left the military and joined a haphazard adventuring group to help a mountain village (Duvik’s Pass) with a vicious magical plague. The menace were slavers and bandits using demonic magic, led by Stephan Doverspeak. Toryn joined the fledgeling group but left after a fight with its ambitious leader, Ionesco.

Working at the Temple of the Cat (Bast) for his living, he encountered Argo Flameheart, a young cleric of Jalivier and joined his holy cause. Together with an enigmatic wizard named Hezekiah Grofus, they formed the Order of the Silver Hand and vowed to protect the world against all invaders, discover the plots of the Stormblades, recover long forgotten treasures and to slay the minions of darkness.

Begrudgingly he has shown his trust to Amaryllis, Shotte and Kar’toomba, the Order’s newest members. He has a pet hedgehog named Pokey. Toryn Stonecutter has become a famous smith throughout the Kul Moren Mountains, and beyond.

Karr'toomba_inked_small
Karr’toomba (Artwork created by steeldragons)

Karr’toomba was born into a nomadic tribe that wandered the plains and tundra following herds of bison and mammoth. His childhood was joyful and in his early teen years he had already taken a wife and had become a Hunter for his tribe.

One dark night the druid of the tribe sent Karr upon his totem journey and his Rite of Passage into manhood. While he was discovering the identity of his spirit guide, a magical attack was unleashed upon him by an aberration and Karr’toomba became the conduit for a gate to be opened into this world for an assault upon the unsuspecting members of his tribe. The magic left him unconscious. When he awoke, drained of much of his life energy, his village was in smoldering ruins, the inhabitants dead or captured.

Karr’toomba’s young bride had been taken by a large raiding party of Tabaxi, most likely as a slave or a sacrifice to their dark god, Tu. He vowed vengeance against the cat race and struck out to find what remains of his family and tribe. His skills with the bow and the hunt have grown to legendary status but he has turned to strong drink to fill the loneliness of his travels.

He chanced upon a meeting with the Order of the Silver Hand in Cauldron City who has warily accepted him as a guide and companion for the wilderness of the Lands of Harqual. Karr’toomba has his motives as well and the Order should have its uses in his quest for vengeance and oblivion.

* Seggr means “hero” in Old Norse.

Hezekiah_inked_small
Hezekiah Grofus (Artwork created by steeldragons)

Hezekiah Grofus was born in the Outlands under circumstances so mysterious that most assume he is an orphan and reticent about his past. He grew up in traveling circus some 300 miles from the Spire of Outlands.

Hezekiah was fascinated with puzzles, riddles, illusions and the whisper of magic that powerful beings were rumored to wield; he sought to earn his freedom from the Mana-Mines by making secret pacts with extraplanar potentates. Hezekiah succeeded in his escape by building himself a modron suit and joining the Great Modron Procession when it visited the Outlands. But he only got so far as Sigil when he was discovered and banished to the streets of the City of Doors.

The human youth attempted to apply for employment with the the Great Library but he was turned down due to insufficient power and life experience. An anonymous patron supported him to become a janitor at the University of Boccob and his curious nature took over. He secretly studied magic, the powers which had eluded him so long blossomed with his first cantrips.

Yet he was not an aristocrat and ineligible to become a student at the Academy. Hezekiah took a risk and jumped through a portal after a Brass Dragon to arrive on the Material plane in the vicinity of Cauldron City, on the World of Kulan. He survived by his wits and became a founding member of the Order of the Silver Hand, never forgetting his humble beginnings.

(Cohort is a halfling rogue/dragon shaman named Amaryllis. Mount is a heavy warhorse named Joshua.)

Argo was born into a small farm near the mountains of Sunwater. His father was a goatherd and a cartwright. His mother was a seamstress and a leather tanner. Argo had two younger brothers: Pell, Sarn; and an older sister named Gloria.

One day a strange robed woman came through the village and she offered gold to spend the evening in shelter and have some food. Argo’s trusting family that was devastated by this woman who turned out to be a Decay Priestess of the Sword Gods. While they slept she slew the father and the younger brothers, raising them from the dead as ghasts to fill out her army.

Argo
Argo Flameheart

Argo and Gloria escaped and fled to the town sheriff who raised a levee to assault the befouled farmstead. Argo witnessed the townsfolk destroy his father and brothers but the priestess and his mother were never found. Traumatized by this event, Argo fell catatonic for some months and dreamed of Celestia; while Gloria sold the farm, married the town blacksmith: a dwarf named Furtock Hammerthumb.

Argo recovered under the care of Opusar, an elderly priest/mage of Jalivier who taught Argo his faith and strong moral code. Argo took Holy Orders in Caloric at the age of 22, bid farewell to Opusar, and took to the road to seek his fortune, discover his faith and seek answers about his mother’s fate. As for the Priestess of Mussin, she, her followers, all undead everywhere and all proponents of evil, disease and necromancy will suffer the righteous wrath of Argo Flameheart rekindled.

From the Archive: Emninrieman

The Tree Lord, The Mighty Oak of the Highborn

Emninrieman (CR 20)
The treant known as Emninrieman has ruled over the Highborn Lands since before the formation of the Eastern Council (perhaps even longer). He is unique amongst his kind due to his fey heritage. No one is sure how he gained this heritage but most of his people assume it comes from his unusual connection to nature and the Balance.

While his rule over the Highborn Lands is absolute, he is not a tyrant. The Highborn Lands are well guarded by his fanatical followers, which includes powerful fey creatures or half-fey elves. Emninrieman has rarely been seen outside the High Forest of his homeland, but the powerful ruler had been known to visit the Knotwood before it fell into evil.

Emninrieman can fly but he doesn’t have true wings (and he rarely does). Instead, he can form his upper branches into winglike appendages. It is believed that he flies either through sheer force of will or through his unique connection to the Balance.

Emninrieman has the ability to tap into the power of the natural world in order to transform himself into an Aspect of Nature. He is a Divine Rank 0 being in such a form. (I don’t have any stats for that version of Emninrieman, yet. -RPB)

Bactra Redwind

Bactra is fairly unique amongst his people.Bactra Redwind

The forest elves of the Knotwood were known to be insular and mistrustful of outsiders. Very few of their kind ever chose to leave the Great Forest of Harqual, yet Bactra wanted to see the world beyond the forested lands. He wasn’t the first of his family to do so, but he was the first to leave due to circumstance. His father fought in the ogre wars, but it wasn’t a choice. It was a matter of survival.

Bactra chose to leave for the human world of the Eastern Shores. The act made him famous (some would say infamous) amongst his people. His departure broke so many taboos that he rarely found himself welcome when he returned to visit his family. It didn’t help that his little sister Teal and (eventually) his cousin Joshian (Dabuk’s half-brother) also took up the adventuring lifestyle.

The young people of Bactra’s family were leaving the fold and the elders of the Knotwood blamed Bactra’s cousin Dabuk for leading Bactra and Teal astray. The last time when he and Dabuk returned, the elders confiscated an artifact they had found and forbid Bactra to leave again or his permanent exile. Bactra was furious! He chose exile with his cousin and even his sister left the Knotwood permanently.

Bactra traveled with Dabuk and the other Companions for years before they were all magically summoned back from The Fallenlands by the World Goddess, Mirella. Why she did this still remains unclear, but it was soon afterwards that Bactra learned that the Knotwood had fallen into darkness. Demons ruled his forest homeland and hundreds of his people — including all the elders — were transformed into blood elves.

While several members of his family managed to flee the magical curse to the Kingdom of the Silver Leaves, he still doesn’t know what happened to two of his younger siblings, his brother Minonus and his sister Jasiliana. Bactra fights the demons and his fallen kin in order to purify the Knotwood and find his lost siblings. He fears that they have become blood elves, but he refuses to give up the search until he knows for sure.

Bactra is a bit of a lothario. He has had several lovers in his life and has at least three children. It is quite possible that he has sired other children, but he rarely concerns himself with such possibilities. He is more concerned with his eldest child, Sailminuthus, a half-elf named for Bactra’s great grandfather. Sail’s human mother, Amia Darthington, lives with Bactra’s family in Silverleaf. While she and Bactra aren’t married, they do love each other and have a second child — a daughter named Samra. His other child’s mother is a hunter elf from the Verdalf Forest. He rarely sees his other son, Dabukian, even though he often fights alongside the child’s mother, Maghania, against demons and blood elves.

Dabuk Tigerstorm

Dabuk is one of the iconic characters of the Lands of Harqual.

the half-elven ranger’s childhood was full of misery and trails. His mother was butchered by ogres while young Dabuk was forced to watch and listen from a hidden spot. Her death was brutal and it scarred Dabuk. It also made him determined. Ogres are a blight that must be wiped out.

After his mother’s death, Dabuk was relocated to the City of Fruen in the Kingdom of Thallin. His father, Garth, left him in the care of the boy’s grandfather, Carl, and the Tiger Guild — a organization of rouges and spies that often worked to protect the interests of the kingdom. Dabuk grew up in the guild and his mentor was Mesik Tindertwig.

Bactra, his cousin, came to Fruen soon after Dabuk started his training. The two became infamous in the city as they got their feet wet in the adventuring way of life. Jeddar and Dvalin soon met up with them one fateful night and the four of them became the best of friends.

Dabuk’s obsession with killing ogres often took him into the wilderness, which forced his friends to follow him. Knowing he’d never be able to keep close to Fruen, his grandfather let Dabuk and his friends explore the world. All he asked was that Dabuk come back with information on what he discovered. The group’s first real adventure was the module “Rudwilla’s Stew” from DRAGON Magazine #45. After that the characters traveled to the Far South and then to Onaway in the west and the Isle of Dread and then all the way to another continent called the Fallenlands. The game ended with the module “Prism Keep” from the same magazine.

Here’s his stats at the end of the AD&D 2E game.

DM’s Note: In truth, I was stingy with XP during the 2E campaign. The PCs should had reached closer to 9th level by the end. My PbP players are lucky. I hand out XP like it’s candy. They have to fight, a lot, for it, however. My SCAP campaign was the same way.
