Hrang is a hulking bugbear of considerable cunning. Born in the Broken Lands, he was captured by Thyatian hunters as a whelp and sold into slavery in the Thyatian arena. His natural strength and vicious bloodlust led him to become an elite fighter in the gladiator bouts. He escaped and fled west to Karameikos, where he survived in the thick woodlands of Karameikos’ interior. He joined a band of goblin and hobgoblin raiders, eventually taking over the band when he killed the chief. He allied with the Black Eagle, basing his raiders out of a ruined tower from old Traladara days. The raiders attack caravans and travelers heading to Luln, often assisting slavers from the Iron Ring.
Despite his savage race, Hrang is a disciplined warrior. He directs his men to strike from ambush and strike quickly. In personal combat, Hrang is quicker than he may appear and he relies on his strength to devastate an opponent. He wields two magic swords in battle, rarely using missile weapons himself. If necessary, he will fall back against a more powerful foe but he is very confident in his abilities. He does feel compelled to answer any challenge to single combat, but isn’t afraid to fight dirty.

The Town of Luln

by Rendclaw

(Original entry on and edited for campaign)

Who Rules: Townmistress Sascia (LG human female Marshal 8/Fighter 2/Legendary Leader 2), who has kept Luln together despite the constant raids and oppression from the Black Eagle Barony. She has all of the support of her people behind her, which has impressed Duke Stefan enough to consider her for knighthood. Sascia has lived in and defended this town for all of her life, and fiercely continues to protect Luln from Baron Von Hendriks' attempts at conquering it.

Who Really Rules: Duke Stefan Karameikos, to whom Townmistress Sascia has sworn fealty.
Population: The population of this newly fortified town varies greatly from time to time as there are always traders and refugees from the Black Eagle Barony passing through; the number varies from 4,000 to about 5,500 at the height of the trading season.

Major Products: Livestock, wagons, carts, leather goods, wool.

Armed Forces:
Due to the number of raids from the Black Eagle Barony, Luln is one of the most heavily garrisoned places in the Duchy; it is split into two divisions. The official detachment of the Duke’s Army, the Home Guard, numbers 300 and consists of mounted foot soldiers (Human Warrior 3) in chainmail and shield, carrying longsword, dagger, light crossbow and spear. They patrol the area surrounding Luln, paying close attention to the roads and the traders they bring. They are led by Captain Leland Darius (LN male human Fighter 7), a Thyatian-born career soldier with a long family history of service dating back to Machetos. Mistress Sascia has raised a large militia (500) of town dwellers, surrounding farmers and helpful adventurers. The bulk (Human Warrior 2) is based in the town, equipped with studded leather armor, light crossbow, shield and half-spear. There are several sergeants, generally loyal adventurers but the militia leader reports to Piotr Iron Heart (LN Human Male Fighter 5/Bard 2), a native of Luln and childhood friend of Sascia.

Local Laws: None in addition to The Duke's Law.

Notable Mages:
·         Kana Shark-Tooth (LG Human Male Wizard 5/Human Paragon 2) is a native of Ierendi and semi-retired adventurer. He was hired by Mistress Sascia as an advisor but he also runs a potion and scroll shop in town. In warmer weather, he dresses the loose clothing of the Makai and forgoes shoes. He is famous for his +1 Returning Flaming Spear, a relic he recovered among ancient lizard men ruins.
·         Lanius Caranthus (NG Human Male Warmage 6) is a Kerendan-born adventurer and mercenary who leads a small company of Warmages based in town. In exchange for bolstering the town’s defenses with their magic, the eight members of the Fiery Eagle (Human Warmage 3) are housed in officer’s quarters and given a small stipend.
·         Tellara of Callarii (CG Elf Female Scout 2/Ranger 2/Wizard 7) splits her time between Luln and the Callarii territories, acting as adventurer and explorer. She is in the employ of the Lord Forester, making maps of the interior of Karameikos and acting to keep outlaws and poachers to a minimum. She is a skilled archer and tracker, in addition to being a crafty wizard.

Notable Churches:
     The Hall of Halav is a major outpost of the Church of Karameikos. The Hall is attended by most of the Traladaran populace of the town. It is a large building, with extensive cellars to hold emergency supplies including grain and weapons. Father Lev Grey-Beard (LG Human Cleric 9) is the dedicated patriarch of the church. He is stern but fair, a former soldier and a skilled healer.

     The Temple of Tranquility is a mid-size church dedicated to the worship of Mirrah and the Church of Karameikos. Although most of the Thyatian populace worships here, the Church is quite active in the defense and growth of the town. Father Demetrius (LG Human Cleric 9) leads a cadre of 6 Healers (NG or LG Human Healer 3) that tend the wounded victims of the Black Eagle raids and operate a hospice on temple grounds.

Shrines to Zirchev, Petra, Odin and Valerias are present in town.

Notable Rogues' and Thieves Guilds: There are none known, but the Iron Ring has spies throughout town, trying to discern the Townmistress' plans and counter them.

Equipment Shops: Partial, poor in winter.

Important Characters:
·         Gregor the Dark Eye (NE Human Hex Blade 5/Rogue 5) is a spy for the Iron Ring who purports to be a low-level fighter and mercenary for hire. He is the leader of a very covert band of Iron Ring operatives based in the surrounding area. His primary goal is to feed information to his superiors that can help eliminate Mistress Sascia or her adventurer allies. He is half-Traladaran and half-Thyatian, with a jagged scar on his left cheek.
·         Krag (CN Half-Orc Ranger 6/Barbarian 3) is the descendant of two Half-Orc adventurers who fled the Broken Lands for more civilized environments. Krag is surprisingly intuitive, although he is something of a loner. He has a soft spot for the victims of bullies. Surprisingly, he is often hired by several Halfling traders as a caravan guard and he has a fairly positive relationship with the Callarii elves. He is famous for fighting with a magical bastard sword and dagger.

The Band of the Gray Wolf is a troop of soldiers and freedom fighters recruited from the Luln militia. As the members of the Band learned to fight, they showed themselves to be excellent warriors. They wanted Mistress Sascia to strike at the Black Eagle in addition to her defensive measures. When Mistress Sascia decided against their suggestion, they formed an independent company of raiders and soldiers. Their leader, Nikolai Ivanov, was one of Mistress Sascia’s protégés.
When the Company of the White Stag sought the lair of Hobgoblin raiders who served the wizard Theondrasius the Dark, the members of the Band acted as rear guard and support. When the raiders were preparing to strike Luln aided by a small army of undead conjured by the dark wizard, the Band made their way back to the town to warn the residents. When the Company of the White Stag cleaned out the ruined keep the wizard used as a base, the Band chose to serve the Company as their troops and christened the freedom fighters “The Band of the Gray Wolf”.
Currently, the Band is divided into mounted crossbowmen and mounted footmen. Both ride light war horses as patrols or into battle, but dismount for combat. The Band is known for their scale mail armor, in a pattern of gold and green. They do not carry shields, favoring polearms in melee. As the Company of the White Stag rebuilds the ruined keep, the Band serves as the troops and occupants of the small but growing base.

Nikolai Ivanov
Fighter 4, medium sized human, CR 4; HD 4d10+8; HP 31; Initiative +1; Speed 20m; AC 17 (touch 11, flat 16); BAB/Grapple: +4/+6; Atk +8 melee (Longsword dg 1d8+3 crit 19-20/x2), Atk +6 melee (Dagger dg 1d4+2 crit 19-20/x2); SA: none; SQ: none; AL: LG; Sv Frt +6, Ref +2, Will +1; Str 14, Dex 13, Con 15, Int 12, Wis 11, Cha 14

GEAR: Breastplate, Light Steel Shield, +1 Longsword, Dagger, Potion of Healing, Vial of Bladefire, Signal Whistle

Nikolai was once the son of a simple smith, but his father was captured by slavers from the Black Eagle and Nikolai found himself caring for his sick mother and younger siblings. They made their way to Luln as refugees and he supported his family as the assistant to one of the town’s armorers. When Mistress Sascia began organizing the rag-tag defenders of the town into a coherent militia, Nikolai was one of her most strident followers. She taught him to be a true fighter and an excellent leader.
Nikolai’s one true fault is his temper. He is passionate in all he does but struggles to keep a cool head when faced with the evil of the Black Eagle. He is prejudiced against Thyatians in general and Hattians in particular. He is also fond of Halflings. Nikolai is an excellent sergeant or junior officer but lacks the experience to act as a senior officer. That is rapidly changing as he observes the heroes of the Company.

Some are assigned to guard diplomats or serve as spies and agents in foreign lands.

Denagoth Ladies of Shadow (Durthan)

Races of Faerun

            These Dwarven warriors and berserkers are found wherever significant numbers of Dwarves dwell. They form small units of elite warriors in Rockhome and sometimes serve as mercenaries.

Warrior Skald
            The Warrior Skald is common in the Northern Reaches and Norwold, often found bolstering raiding bands with their music. They are often found in the halls of jarls, where they serve as advisers.

Divine Champion
            The Divine Champion is another common agent of many Immortals. Ixion counts many among his followers, as does Halav, Sif and Thor. They are typically itinerant adventurers who quest on behalf of their Immortal’s church.

Divine Seeker
            The Divine Seeker is found among most Immortal churches but is most numerous among Asterius, Korotiku and Loki. They often team with Temple Raiders to form small groups dedicated to quietly achieving the goals of their Immortal.

            Runecasters are common among the Dwarves and the Giants. They use stone and metal as mediums to cast potent spells.

Shaaryan Hunter (Ethengar Hunter)
            The Ethengar Hunters are among the swiftest riders on the Ethengar Plains. They can track from horseback and are the most versatile warriors on a mount. Most serve the Golden Khan as elite messengers and warriors but some adventure far in their wanderlust.

Shadow Thief of Amn (Minrothad Guild Thief)
            The Thieves’ Guild of Minrothad does not operate on the soil of the island nation. Instead, they range most of the Known World. They are usually the main competition for the local guilds. The Minrothad Guild Thieves are most active in Thyatis and Darokin.

Hoard Stealer
            Hoard Stealers are extremely specialized burglars that target powerful hoarders like dragons. Many are found among the halflings of the Five Shires or the dwarves of Rockhome.

Initiate of the Draconic Mysteries
            Initiates gain power studying ancient texts containing snippets of the lore of dragons. Their origins date back to the Thonian Empire, before Blackmoor’s founding.

            Paladins and knights who serve good dragons, Platinum Knights are found in many lands but most roam the Known World in search of evil.

Their rangers train to overcome these alien creatures. Grunalf rangers are consummate trackers and hunters, often multi-classing as Scouts or Druids.
·         Greensinger sect. The Callarii of Karameikos have a close association with the fey of the deep woods and must protect their territory from orc and goblin raiders. Many study the lore of their clan’s Tree Keepers (druids) or Wizards.
·         Warden of the Woods sect. The Foresters of Thyatis follow this path under the tutelage of the Vyalia elves. Arcane magic is usually part of their training and most have at least one level of bard or wizard.

Master Inquisitive
            Master Inquisitives originated in Darokin and Glantri but have spread to many large cities where they usually work for the rulers of the city. Some are freelance investigators, often being employed by nobles to investigate the machinations of their rivals.

Warforged Juggernaut
            Warforged are rare under the best of circumstances but they are most often seen in Rockhome. Warforged Juggernauts are among the most powerful defenders available to the King and he typically keeps them close to him. A few are assigned to areas that are threatened by large numbers of orcs.

Five Nations

Knight Phantom
            Knights Phantom are members of a knighthood of Belcadiz elves and half-elves dedicated to the defense of the clan (first) and the nation (second). Most are wizards with training as a swashbuckler, ranger or fighter.

Dark Lantern
            Shadow Elves of the Second Shadow often receive special training to become spies and agents on the surface.

Cyran Avenger
            As wars devastate the Known World, many injured parties turn their hearts to vengeance. The numbers of these rebels are growing in the Thyatian Hinterlands and among the more radical Traladarans that have suffered under Baron Von Hendricks.
