Full Name: Tormaz Torcsmith
Age: 89
Class(es): Fighter
Race: Dwarf
Alignment: Neutral Good
Deity: Dorand


From an honest worker to a fearless warrior Tormaz Torcsmith had not always thought of himself as an adventurer. The seeds of adventure took their time to grow with Tormaz.

Tormaz, is a hard working, intelligent and friendly soul who is often found either in his forge, mining or enjoying a surprisingly quiet pint, which is often rare for dwarves.

Tormaz comes from a family of gifted smiths from the Shofal Mountains, and rarely left the town. However he was always curious of what the merchants told him of the strange wonders of afar.

Over the years as Tormaz’s curiosity grew, his family noticed him talk more and more of the outside world and exploration. A few of his family were puzzled by his desires. They thought it was rather odd, that such a gifted dwarf should want to waste his time travelling. However his great-great uncle Dalin was intrigued.

Dalin was once an adventurer, though lately appeared to be quite eccentric.It was rumoured he had slain a black dragon, but most dismissed this, as no trophy was taken. One night when Tormaz was crafting in his forge. Dalin came to him and beckoned him to follow. Dalin lead him for what seemed to be hours deeper and deeper into the mountains, remaining silent all the way. Dalin then opened a secret door and led Tormaz in.

Inside Dalin spoke; ‘I have watched you for some time nephew, and see in you the spark I once saw in myself. I have something to show you which will hopefully ignite your interest’ Dalin lead him around the corner and inside was a site that made Tormaz stagger back in shock. On an enormous marble slab on the wall was held the grotesque head of a black dragon. Dalin grinned ‘I was a bit younger when his head met my axe. Though I hid it because I wanted not fame and fortune, as many others do, but I only wanted to protect my kin and explore and meet new people, see strange stars and lands I see that desire in you, which is why I give you this’ with that he gave Tormaz a small dagger and a map. ‘These should get you on my way, my dear Tormaz’. With that, Tormaz bowed, thanked Dalin, and prepared to see the wide world…

Full Name: Valanya Godwinson
Age: 26
Class(es): Paladin, possible CDQ for Sorcerer in the future
Race: Half Elf
Alignment: LG
Deity: Lucinda

The family of Valanya Godwinson have always been part of the weave; generations of Godwinsons have been wizards for as long as she remembers.

Valanya was brought up by her father and other close family, for her elven mother died when Valanya was 12 on an archaeological expedition to the dragon isles, searching for magical artefacts.

Given her boisterous upbringing (she has 3 brothers); she understandably has a good grasp of fighting and finding the enemies (or older brothers) weak spots. Although Valanya has many half elven tendencies, her human upbringing has given a more human view of the world, too young to fully understand her mother’s elven influence.

Given her families dedication to Lucinda, it was obvious that Valanya would proceed down a path related to her, as 2 of her brother had already proceeded to become mages (the other is a baker).

As long as she could remember Valanya felt the weave differently from her kin. It scared her that it seemed more dominant and forceful than the magic her brothers had strived so hard to master through years of intense study. Many times she had nightmares of fire and explosions and awoke with singed bed clothes. She told her father, Gawain of these visions, and he understood that unlike any of his other wizard ancestors, there was a potential Sorcerer in the family. He knew little of his wife’s ancestry and suspects she inherited it from her. He was proud to have such magic potential in his family but feared for her safety, as only other sorcerers could nurture this intuition based gift, as he could instruct her little, only ever methodically learning from books and ancient texts.

 However, another idea struck him and he recommended the Knightly Order of Lucinda, for as powerful with the weave as she was, she was a strong, just and noble girl, full of energy and devoted to Lucinda. With the rigorous training under seasoned Paladins he hoped she could either channel her energy into the protection of Lucinda and the weave, or one day conquer her own fears and realise her potential as a Sorcerer, and honour Lucinda with the weave.

Gawain took his daughter to the temple of Lucinda and explained her plight to the    Protectors, they understood her unique problem and agreed to train her, we she excelled in the use of a rapier.

1.Valanya has a natural talent for the weave, bubbling under her surface like fire. However, Valanya has suppressed it as she wishes to take a more assertive role in defending her tenets and has pledged her self to a Paladins servitude to Lucinda. Though she has doubts whether she can suppress the bubbling raw magic it forever.

2. Valanya’s adherence to Lucinda’s laws are as much instinctive as consciously aware, although she knows them rigorously. Valanya intends to promote and defend the weave in all its forms and guises, particularly in strength and wisdom.

3.When danger looms and the weave is threatened, Valanya tends to wear full armour and a  wields a rapier and  shield, however in peace time she wears long flowing purple and white robes that dance in the wind, symbolising the ever flowing weave.

Hi peeps. As some of you may have noticed Vindel hasn't been on recently. I'm really busy at the moment and doubt i'll have much time to be on until Christmas. Am currently at teacher training college and every minute i'm trying to scrabble something together! Good luck all and hope to see you soon!


P.S. Vindel is in the underdark searching for something....
