Eragor Erunk

By:

Isssss It Wrong To Dissscriminate Usssss?- Eragor Erunk

Special Equipment:

Two scimitars with a special kind of metal made by the trolls in the north.

Appearance:

He has only his two scimitars strapped across his back with his skin scaled, nudity is nothing to the Lizardfolk in the Kazak Desert who wear nothing, but their skin and swords.
His scales are a light brown with his eyes a pale yellow and needle like teeth, and his head with a wolf-like snout. He has a three foot long tale with his arms usually short with his legs long, making him able to leap several meters.

Background:

  Born in a small cave with his 1 twin brother, he grew up as the heir to become the tribal leader of the Serpent Tribe. He lead small raids against other Lizardfolk, fighting in tribal warfare and leading raids against the elves along the edge of the Kazak Desert.
   Eragor Erunk led his fellow Lizards and conqured much more Tribal Territory then they had ver had until they had almost eliminated all other tribes in the area and ruled most of the desert. That was the time when the elves started to encroach upon the borders of his territory and Eragor called out open war on Abasil. Abasil responded by sending an army of 7,000 Holy Empire Troops against them.

   Eragor led his armies, and with books he had read of strategy, he fought the armies training his men to fight in formation and ranks. But he could not against the seasoned Abasil Troops who had fought in formation for almost 10,000 years. Early in the war, defeat was everywhere, but then Eragor started using hit-and-run tactics and this is when the casualties of elves went up.

   The last battle of the war was in the valley surrounded by sand dunes. 2,000 Abasil men marched into the valley and Eragor snared his trap. He surrouned them on the dunes and proceeded to fire vollies of arrows and spears into the elves. He then ordered the charge and they flooded over the elves, slaughtering them as they went.

   A month later, Abasil withdrew all it’s forces out of the Kazak Desert, but did not recognize the desert as a separate country. Now Eragor strives to show it as a separate nation and still leads raids against villages near the desert

Roleplaying Notes:

He is a strong minded leader, who has the ability of to decieve and silently kill.

-Too short.
-Needs better explanation of the warfare and his heroics.
-Needs a more detailed description of his personality. Right now he has none, other than being able to leap several meters, lead armies and slaughtering elves.
-Twin scimitar wielding is a cliché.
-If the weapons are made of a rare metal and by Northern trolls they might deserve better detail.

Exactly as above.
In addition, what does "Isssss It Wrong To Dissscriminate Usssss" have to do with this character? It isn't even in character- the comment seems to say that the elves were correct in 'discriminating' which they never did, according to your story.

2/5.

Rare metal from northern trolls, where a lizardman would freeze his buttocks off. Very credible.
He's not a person now, just a generic aggressive lizard.
Whatabout the impact his twin brother had (to have) on his life?

Bland.

You have to paint us a picture of the mentality of the lizardfolk.If you look at my Ehshal or eel-men,you will see that I try to make them easier to understand by describing their culture and beliefs.This goes a long way to making a true person out of someone who would otherwise just be a bizzare amphibian life form.Hope this helps.

I really want to rate this higher. I do. But, every pretty much is right. It is too short and too underdeveloped. It is the kernal of a great idea. But now nope.

       By: Almar

While setting up camp for the night, the PC's are aproached by another group of adventurers who seem nice enough. The road is somewhat dangerous and the other group suggests camping together. The two bands split watches, one adventurer from each group watching at once. The night goes by without incident, the next day the PC's travel with the other group as they are going the same way.

The group consists of Hordel the ranger, who is skilled with the bow. Hordel is a quiet man who speaks little but appears quite skilled. Dremar is a barbarian who is a little excentric, he seems to be an excasive drinker and thiunk that battle is the solution to everything. He appears to be a stout and powerful fighter with his greataxe. Ferrin is the leader of the group, a rouge by trade. He is daft and witty, speaking with the PCs often and asking many questions. He fights with finesse with his rapier. Preminitat as a cleric but he will not say which god he worships. He uses his spells to empower and heal his party and fights with a club. He sticks close to Ferrin. Ferrin is a great talker and tells much of himself and his party, but asks even more about the history and capabilities of the PCs. He tells of some adventures his party has had, and they seem like an interesting group of mercenaries. Hordel is quite and has little interest in speaking with the PCs, he ignores most questions. He spends a lot of time with Dremar and sometimes Ferrin. Dremar seems to not care about any questions ansked to him, nor does he seem to know the answers. He seems battle hardened and is a simple man. Preminitat rarely starts conversations but will speak with the PCs. However, some of his accounts of the party's history seem to condradict those of Ferrin.

The Party spends another night and day with Ferrin's group. One of four things can happen on the third night.
1: While eating dinner around the fire, Ferrin gets into an argument with one of the PCs when he/she mentions the discepincies between Ferrin's stories and Preminitat's.
2: Hordel gets mad after repeated questioning about his life from the PCs.
3. Preminitat gets mad after repeated questioning from the PCs about what god he worships.
4: One of the PCs rejects the offer of a drink from Dremar and he takes it as an insult.
All of these scenarios result in a battle between the parties. If Ferrin's party is defeated and still lives he swears vengance. His party may then cross paths with the adventurers again.
