Tarak

By:

Once a decorated Theosian Soldier, now a wanted deserter.

Appearance

Tarak appears as a sturdy warrior in his late thirties.  His black hair is streaked with grey and he has rough, sturdy features.  Numerous minor scars give him a fairly intimidating appearance.

History/Background

Tarak was a sargent in the Theosian Army until involved in the Harvest of the Asrok, as detailed in the legend of the Boots of the Asrok whereupon he was promoted to a Sub-Knight and given command of a company of soldiers. Unfortunately for him, he came under the influence of the Boots and inadvertantly became a deserter.

Tarak gained his freedom from the boots, but this almost killed him.  While tracking some goats which had wandered accross a frozen lake, he happened to fall into a rift.
During his frantic efforts to escape the icey grip of the frigid water, the boots fell off and into the lake.  After a lengthy struggle, an exausted and freezing Tarak managed to pull himself onto the ice.

Currently, Tarak is a deserter and is roaming the Garon’s Teeth mountains.  The Theosian army would execute him if he were to fall into their hands.

Special Equipment

Tarak wears a pair of Boots of the Asrok in addition to heavy clothing of mountain goat skins.

Roleplaying Notes

While still wearing the boots, Tarak will not consider leaving the mountains.  Once freed of the boots, he could be employed as a forest guide, if the PC’s can convince him they have no ties with his former kingdom.

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz

Yupiorite

Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.

Aragdulose

"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
