The Gholesht

By:

The Gholesht is the emperor of Rigzahb, controller (in theory, at least) of all temporal power in the Veiled Nation.

The official dynastic name of the Gholesht is Ghrinshur-ahng-Wakhti, "Compassion Without End". He is the 9th of his dynasty, the Suruhmbilakhi, descended from Shun-tuhr-Tabraj, "Foe Of Iniquity", who took the throne of the Gholesht from the tyrannical and hated rulers of the previous dynasty in a bloody palace coup.
The Gholesht is the emperor and ultimate ruler of Rigzahb, often called the Veiled Nation. All of Rigzahb pays lip service to the ancient and traditional system of Naznasheb ("Separation"), which decrees that all temporal and political power in Rigzahb shall be held by the Gholesht, while all spiritual and religious power in Rigzahb shall be held by the Arigvehda, leader of the Red Hats, the priests of Rigzahb’s ancient Thurunzahn religion.
However, this status as premiere master of the Veiled Nation has deteriorated over time. As warlike ages and great turmoils passed over Rigzahb, the nation changed. The powerful and ancient religion of Thurunzahn became the supreme power- the Arigvehda became the true ruler, political and spiritual, of Rigzahb, the Gholesht became merely his political intermediary, and the ancient warrants of Naznasheb became a hollow lip-serviced idol.
However, the rise of the heretical splinter religion of the Crimson God, Aurangzeb, and the powerful rebellion which has risen with it, has given a renewed status to the Gholesht. Though Ghringzahj-angho-Wahti is no supporter of the rebellion (which threatens to topple his throne and power structure as well as the Arigvehda’s), he has utilized the threat of the bloody and on-going civil war as leverage against the Arigvehda and the temple power structure.

Appearance
Ghringzahj-angho-Wahti is very much his father’s son, by which is meant, he is nearly a perfect resemblance of the first of his dynasty.
He is tall, nearly six and 1/2 feet, with broad, powerful shoulders. He is large in stature, with brawny arms and legs and a barrel chest. He has a meaty look to him, with round cheeks and full lips, and a very hooked nose. He has very large eyes of a deep hazel tone, beautiful, magnetic eyes;  many an emissary has found themselves caught unawares by the mesmeric power of those liquid pools.
As a son of Rigzahb, his skin is a dusky brown. He shaves his head bald and oils his flesh in the tradition of the Gholesht before him.
When he is seen in public or for ritual appearances, he wears the ritual gold pectoral, worked with ancient holy characters, and a splendid skirt of brilliant rainbow feathers.

       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.
