The Oaken Duke

By:

The kingdom of Shyvora is known for its inclusion of non-humans.  One of their best fighting Dukes is a tree…

Appearance Appearing as a 7’ tall humanoid Oak Tree, the duke has a thick trunk and powerful limbs and ‘legs’.  His crown is heavily leaved and his trunk is girded by thick bronze plates.  Where his bark is visible, many scars mark the surface.

Special Equipment The Duke bears custom-made bronze armor made from him by his grateful human liege.  It is naturally corrosion resistent and very thick. For weapons, he generally uses two large axes, or a shield and axe.

History

Known among the Dwarven Treeherds by the name of Broadtrunk, this exceptional individual showed great aptitude toward military tactics and led his 1st Warden Regiment to several key victories against Shyvora’s enemies.  Taking advantage of their ability to blend into the forest and use the trees themselves as scouts, they were able to route units much larger then their own.

Roleplaying Notes

The Duke is quite intelligent - being moreso then most humans, and has a force of personality strong enough to inspire even human troops. If anything, the Duke’s confidence is also his greatest weakness.  He is smart, but tends to dismiss the intelligence of his opponents, a flaw which might lead to this peerless warrior finally failing.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
