A member of House Aeliden, Alnin Stoneshield was a powerful ha’ilven
spellsword, with compelling good looks and a easygoing manner. He
researched many battle-magics, both offensive and protective (most
notably stoneshield), and died well into old age, battling a great linnorm in the Kameurhorns.
Today a name of terror and fright-tales, Azekor was a ha’ilven wizard
in the last years of Sieriven. A pupil of the wizard/priest Beirhn
Rosemantle, Azequor rejected her gentle teachings later in his life,
striving to accumulate power in a mad drive that culminated in his
transformation to lichdom. His skeletal form dwells somewhere in the
fastness of the High Hills, using his minions and servants to continue
gathering magical items and spells.
Erabor the Caller
Architect of the Endless Dungeon, Erabor the Caller is a whimsical
archmage. Perpetually young in appearance, though of uncommonly tall
height, he studied attractive magic (drawing monsters and adventurers
both to his home) and planar effects. Erabor disappeared nearly a
century ago, and is thought to have settled in a demiplane from which he
keeps tabs on his former home, keeping it supplied with monsters and
treasure both, and viewing the resultant mayhem for his amusement.
Gereint the Dark
An apprentice of the Ninestars Council, Gereint eschewed their company
for a solitary existence of research. Meglomania and paranoia led him
to hide many caches of magic items (mostly scrolls and potions) in
various “safeholes” around the Shadowend, often in a secure portion of
an occupied dungeon. He disappeared nearly three centuries ago, along
with his tower and the nearby village he ruled, but legends maintain he
simply transported himself and his subjects to a secure realm in the
Once an apprentice of Erabor the Caller, Gray Dashain specialized in
summoning, binding, and compelling outsiders. Despite the obvious
dangers, Dashain lived into his twilight years before disappearing from
his secluded tower. Various whispers and rumors over the years suggest
he is not dead, but imprisoned on another plane, perhaps by a powerful
devil or genie lord.
One of the most gifted students of the Moonstone Guild, Menioth is the
foremost expert on the Positive Material Plane and its attendent
energies. She rarely adventures, preferring to “field-test” her spells
through allied wizards. With straw-colored hair, fair eyes, and unlined
skin, Menioth appears much younger than her fifty-six years, a possible
side-effect of her long exposure to positive energy.
Raliard the Spellsage
More famous than powerful, Raliard makes his living uncovering caches
of magic and spelllore. A skillful diviner, Raliard’s command of magic
continually uncovers new treasures for him, and warns him against those
who would take it. The secrets the Spellsage uncovers invariably makes
their way into common practice as he sells or barters away his findings.
He lives in the small village of Tenmensport, but is more often found
on the high plains of the Tehmar.
A member of the Fallen, Whisper helped rule the Dread Queen’s empire
for half a century before being captured and bound into slumber for
seven-hundred years. Freed only recently, the diminutive,
leather-wrapped wizard has wasted no time exerting his subtle influence
across the Hundred Kingdoms once again. His knowledge of lost and
hidden spellcaches provided a quick and solid base of power, and this
hidden knowledge has been slowly leaking out as Whisper takes
