A Multitude of Mountaineers


Mountaineering is a relentless pursiut. One climbs further and further yet never reaches the destination. Perhaps that is what gives it its own particular charm. One is constantly searching for something never to be found.

- Hermann Buhl

1. Lyle Corbran Reeves

2. ‘Big’ Kennesaw Trollherder
Despite his name, Big is about average size for a human. His nickname comes from the fact that about everything else about him is simply larger than life. He can outdrink a fish, sell sand to desertfolk, and simply has the dark one’s luck. Years ago, Big made his living as a decoy and a scout in the Trowbottyn, a region infested with trolls and ogres. He learned the skill in quickly climbing rocks and hard to scale cliff faces was valuable for escaping from the trolls he baited and lead either into ambushes or simply away from good settled folk. His antics and lifestyle came from the grim fact that most troll herders had careers measured in weeks at the longest. His skill is focused on bouldering and upper body strength.

5. Gion-Savet Talamantes
There are few areas where the nobility havent made their presence felt, and mountaineering is not exempt. Gion-Savet Talamantes is a noble’s noble, traveling with a large entourage, wearing the finest silk doublets and lace and quoting epic poetry while fencing with a rapier. Unlike other nobles, however, Talamantes likes to doff the silk and hose for a stout leather tunic and boots and dirty his hands climbing mountains. He is an excellent mountaineer, and a good man to the core, but has the distinction of being bound by blood to what he considers the most backbiting and crass of companions. He mountain climbs because most of his entourage finds it repellant.

7. Red-Squirrel

8. Sygg the Elder & Sygg the Younger

9. Gryveki the One
A toll is a toll, and a gnoll is a gnoll, or so the saying goes. Gryveki is relatively new to mountaineering, but has taken well to it. With a thick coat of fur and sharp talons on his hands and feet, he is a natural climber and does quite well. He has been climbing with other mountaineers for several years and has finally decided to go out on his own rather than follow behind another mountaineer. His main weakness as a climber is his need for large amounts of meat, which tends to either spoil or freeze during a long climb.

10. Eighlus of Widow’s Peak
Elves are rare beyond the bounds of the forests and are even more rare to be found in the stony realms of the mountains. Eighlus is an atypical elf in that she has long since forsaken her abode in the wood to live a hard ascetic life in the mountains. Her tale is a sad one, one she tells to very few. She is a capable climber and exceptional mountaineer, and one of the few things that entice her to leave her peak are the challenges of climbing a new peak in competition.

11. Poppa’ Shalepatter

12. Neijlona Kin-Killer
There are some accidents that haunt a person for the rest of their lives, and Neijlona has taken this as more than a curse, but as a mantle. A seasoned merchantwoman, Neijlona was involved in a dubious event some years ago when her caravan was caught in a mountain pass through a harsh winter. Supplies ran out and several members of her own family turned cannibal and started eating the dead. When they turned their attention to fresher meat, Neijlona killed them. Taking the appelation Kin-Killer, she is a hard and unrelenting woman with a faith that has been tempered to iron-hard resolve by things that would make a lesser person faint. Her best skills involve being prepared ahead of time, good planning, and caution above valor.

I wonder if this submission will ever be created? Is it in Mathom's grip? :)

cold, hard, vice-like grip, yes.

A magician develops a new way to make scrolls and can sell more powerful spells for cheap. Problem is, whether the magician is aware of it or not, the spell's power comes from spirits trapped by the magic that makes the scroll. Once used to power the scroll, the spirit is driven mad by the forces that have ripped through it's being, and often develops a homicidal thirst to destroy the one who tormented it. The spell the spirit was used for may have left some residual power in the spirit to give it more abilities than it ever used to have.

Buyer beware!
