Gamard the Grim is now ready for any role play interaction, before Alacrity kicks off the adventure in November!

Question for Alacrity
What would be the Size and description of the Quarterstaff in relation to the height(4'5") of Gamard the Grim ???

Did not choose to include a physical description of the Quarterstaff or any Knights of Holy Anger decorations on the Quarterstaff until I checked with you!

Staff of Life

Gamard the Grim had been oblivious to the arrival of any other survivors being washed up on the beach of this 'deserted' island, during the past two hours of his private devotional prayer time to Solanis.

Fortunately, his boots and other garments, including his Knights of Holy Anger War Tunic, was more than sufficiently dried out from his ordeal in the surf, for which he gave Solanis extra thanks!

He strode back down to the beach, working out any more traces of stiffness from his body, noticing with grim satisfaction that he was not the only survivor of the ill fated 'Minnow' that had washed ashore upon this desolate unknown beach.

However, before hailing his surviving comrades, the Khord War Cleric of Solanis noticed a familiar Quarterstaff that had washed up unharmed upon the desolate beach. He blurted out yet another praise of thanksgiving to his deity Solanis, as the Knight of Holy Anger gratefully retrieved his only weapon that had successfully weathered the storm!

Thraggdrugg would be honored to hear how Solanis so graciously spared the one gift that Thraggdrugg had so proudly bestowed upon me, for befriending him and learning his secrets of survival and battle tactics, no matter how hopeless the odds a Knight of Holy Anger might face in uncertain situations!

Thraggdrugg was a 'retired' Knight of Holy Anger, who was currently a resident in a Solanis Temple near Bayliss, who early in his life was an outcast Half-Orc, whose human mother had been savagely victimized by an Orc raiding party.

Gamard the Grim meticulously examined his most prized possession, as he continued thinking back to a time four years ago, when he began investing two precious years receiving 'special intensive training' from Thraggdrugg, before spending the past two years hiring himself out to bless traveling caravans from Bayliss as a 'Healer and Cook', sometimes helping to fight when it was necessary to ward off bandits or other evil monstrosities (think of the Cook in one of those Steven Segal movies).

These are the portions of his life that Gamard had chosen to reveal to the other adventurers; during the various 'getting acquainted' conversations that had taken place over the course of the first three days aboard ship, before the storm struck and demolished the misfortunate 'Minnow' that was enroute to Portua, Pardinal.

The survivors also know that Gamard the Grim was determined to begin a new journey northward across Pardinal, into Ertain and Drannon, to search for and destroy the ancient evils reportedly plaguing those regions from the dark bowels of Sendria.

He was glad to see that some of the adventurers he had met were somehow spared an untimely and unexpected death, so he now turned his undivided attention in the direction of the various survivors.

Striding forward at a brisk pace with a cheerful air of reborn purpose, the Knight of Holy Anger utilized his newly recovered Quarterstaff as a walking stick in his left hand, deftly traversing the jagged, rock strewn terrain between himself and his shipwrecked companions; while waving his right hand with a grimly concerned gesture of greeting, as to the well being of his fellow survivors!

"HO My Friends! How Fare Ye?"

Subject: Gamard the Grim Intro Part One


Drift 'Khord' Wood

”UUUUUNNNNNGGGGGHHHHH”

Gamard the Grim slowly regained consciousness as his limp, water logged body began to stir in the wet sand, under the dismally cloud-hidden early fall afternoon sky; a chill wind blowing mercilessly with the promise of yet another livid lashing from the unexpected storm that had unceremoniously deposited the Khord Cleric of Solanis upon this unknown forsaken island.

The foul scent of dead, decayed octopi invaded his nostrils, providing a rude awakening, courtesy of this unnatural smelling salt from the briny sea, as the Khord spluttered and coughed his way to clarity.

Slowly he stood to his feet, stretching his 4'5” frame as he shook his soggy self, feeling much heavier than his customary 143 pounds.

His now tangled silver hair and silver beard were matted with clumps of damp, bitter seaweed; completely covering his head band and the holy symbol of his deity Solanis: a gold disk embossed with a blazing sun, that was majestically stitched on the front of the leather fabric that crossed his forehead.

With an annoyed grunt, he pulled off his soft padded boots, emptying the extra weight of water into the bleak colored sand, before arranging them to air out in the chilly wind that whipped among the nearby rocks, securing his boots so they would not blow away!

Gamard began thanking Solanis for his good fortune to survive the unexpected shipwreck, as he purposely pulled off his 'Knights of Holy Anger' War Tunic, a sturdy type of hide armor that had protected him from certain death countless times in the past.

Again, he arranged his hide armor so it was secure among the jutting rocks, maximizing the opportunity for the chill wind to somehow dry his precious protective armor.

Then he removed both his pants and his shirt, repeating the process of utilizing the chill wind among the rocks to dry the only garments left in his possession from the ill fated voyage!

He then followed suit with his sea soaked undergarments, standing 'buck naked' among the desolate rocks, as he secured these private possessions among the rocks to also dry in the chilly wind.

Finally, he untangled his silver hair, tossing the clumps of unwanted damp seaweed aside, before squeezing the strands of his silver hair to shed more unwanted water weight, prior to pulling his hair back into a ponytail that ran beneath his shoulder blades almost to his waist.

Then he adjusted his head band, so the holy symbol was in full view to anyone or anything that the Knight of Holy Anger War Cleric may possibly face that day!

His oddly hued purple eyes squinted with disdain at the desolate landscape, as the 59 year young dwarf suppressed a sullen chuckle, as he thought upon the fate of the crew of the 'Minnow'.

As a Priest of Solanis they welcomed me aboard as a sign of good fortune for their voyage! Fat lot of good that did them!

Then, and only then, did Gamard the Grim raise his arms towards the hidden sun, the palms of his hands opened wide, as he began exalting his deity Solanis; preparing himself spiritually and mentally to be both a container, as well as a conduit, for the power of Solanis to flow through him, should the Knight of Holy Anger need the use of any Cleric spells this day!

He spent the next two hours in prayerful preparation, choosing not to waste a spell of Endure Cold upon himself; for the Knight of Holy Anger had weathered worse conditions at the unseen hands of the cruel elements of the world of Audalis, without resorting to the self comforts of his available spells to Endure Heat or Endure Cold, during some of his past adventures!

After his prayer time had passed long enough for Gamard the Grim to be certain that he was now prepared spiritually, mentally and physically for any further challenges that he may face this day; the Khord Cleric retrieved his only remaining clothes, deftly dressing himself as he sang further praises to Solanis, before setting out to explore the surrounding terrain for anything or anyone useful enough to join with him to confront the challenges of the unknown!

Subject: 'The Stomper' Ship


Wind and Fire
World of Aihrde
Island of Tagea
On Board The Toothless Dragon
Late Afternoon on Saturday
Marrero 13, 101awd (After Winter Dark)


Perhaps it was good fortune, or the hand of Minerva that stayed Areldor from using his newly acquired 'Fire Wand', before the battle was engaged in its early stages against the enemy ship 'The Stomper'.

Tohmas had called upon Atira to grant the Shaman a 'Spirit Gust of Air' to aid the Stout Hearts against the head wind that was causing the Cut Throats crew of 'The Stomper' to overtake and trap the 'Toothless Dragon' near the harbor of sunken ships.

For a radius of 90 feet the wind rises up in the spell area and puts out all flames or banishes all fogs or gases in the area!

Without a doubt, had a Fire Ball burst from the Fire Wand (with its unknown number of charges, if any) held by Areldor been either purposely or accidentally unleashed, it would have been extinguished immediately, before it ever had the chance to reach its intended targets!

For whatever reason, the mysterious wind that was aiding 'The Stomper', suddenly vanished when the 'Spirit Gust of Air' from Atira was unleashed by Tohmas.

More importantly, as 'The Stomper' ship drew within combat range, every Fire Arrow that was suddenly unleashed by the Cut Throats archers to cripple the 'Toothless Dragon', was immediately extinguished, including the source of the flames!

Furthermore, every arrow and spear launched against the Stout Hearts and Seekers by the Cut Throats crew, were blown harmlessly away into the dark waters surrounding the harbor of sunken ships!

Even as the 'Spirit Gust of Air' from Atira subsided, the faithful and diligent crew of Stout Hearts were able to steer the 'Toothless Dragon' at such a precision angle, as to cause the battering ram adorning its bow to deliver a glancing, but nonetheless effective crippling blow, bashing its way into the stern of 'The Stomper', causing the enemy ship to begin taking on unwanted sea water, listing towards the harbor of sunken ships!

In the excitement of the brief sea battle, Areldor managed to somehow trigger his newly acquired 'Fire Stick', as Minerva rewarded his gallant, if not accidental, effort with a Fire Ball flame that struck above the mid-section of the ship on the right side of 'The Stomper'; the brilliant explosion setting fire to the middle of the railing, while transforming the mast into a flaming torch, assuring that the Stout Hearts were now able to effortlessly outrun the Cut Throats crew of 'The Stomper', if they chose to now flee triumphantly from the scene of battle, with their treasure cache unmolested by 'The Stomper' pirates!
