What started with the Unlikely Heroes campaign and the motley crew of Longchops, Gullin, Zocha, Lurglekk, Dolen, and Fargas has now become the story of a new adventuring group in the wilds of Western Immoren. A misfit bunch that has yet to meet each other is wandering, discovering, investigating, travelling, and exploring their way toward the story we will share with you! We introduce Nigel, Taiga, Calder, and Maxx on the adventures of the DOGC IKRPG! Not necessarily the heroes the people of Iron Kingdoms may want, but the ones they deserve…
Nigel Waters is a rather shady Investigator Thamorite from Ord that has a veiled past the most don’t dare to ask. A short stodgy man, he is a reserved person who cares not for the living around him. He prefers the solace of his studies and his own pursuits. As the story begins what we do know is House Matteo of Lael has hired him to discern who killed Owen Winston, a murdered Laelese Nobel. When the story begins we find Nigel where we find all shady things… in the Five Fingers.
Taiga Sleetkill, a Sorcerer Raptor is a Nyss from the wilds of the frozen north far from civilization. As he grew and passed through warrior trials he learned the skills of mounted combat and the beast empathy to ride and fight astride an Ulk. Upon adolescence his gifts became manifest and he went to train with a master of his arts. After honing his skill he returned to his small village to find the corpses of his people there, everything had long been destroyed. He found the remnants of his entire family, however only his sister was missing from the remains. Taiga immediately set off in hopes of finding his only remaining living family; his journey took him south towards the human cities of the Iron Kingdoms.
Beast Lord Calder and the White Maw Hunters, are a Tharn cadre in the Gnarls. Calder, born Vincent Stone, is a young man who is believed to be gifted with the Wilding. He is currently a Blackclad Chieftain who has been under the protection of the White Maw Tharn tribe at the direction of the Druids until such time as his gifts are allowed to grow beyond watching eyes. While growing up with the tribe he matriculated into their ways and earned the trust of the Chief as well as the respect of his tribesmen. The White Maw have assigned two of their kin to his protection, a Ravager Brigand and a Warlock Ravager. The only one who knows Calder’s true identity and purpose is the tribe’s Chief; the rest are left to be uncomfortable in the presence of a mundane human.
Zebalon the Witch Doctor, was a happy Gator living wherever he pleased among the swamps of the Gnarls. His past is irrelevant, though what we know is he had amassed quite a collection of Bogrin. Always looking for new larger swamps to call home, he moved from place to place claiming new areas…and lives. His pet Boneswarm has grown to quite a healthy height and the ranks of Bogrin had swelled quite nicely. We meet him in the story roaming to new and unfortunate areas of the wilds.
Warden Maxx Krueger, fittingly a Circle Warlock Archer, joins the story in the Gnarls where he is sent to the aid of the now devastated White Maw Tribe. His history is a secret, as is most of those within the ranks of the Circle Orboros. Once word of the Troll attack on the White Maw spread, he was dispatched by his Order to find out the well being of the one previously known as Vincent Stone; deep in the Gnarls at the remains of the Tharn tribe is where he finds the young Blackclad, who is now known now as Calder. To see further to Calder’s protection he takes up the cause of the White Maw mission… for now.
As these misfits romp through the wilderness towards greatness… and each other, follow their adventures here!
