The Age of Worms
Name under which Auric Taumen entered the Champions Games of CY 595. Though Khelleck Rangoth remained in the lineup, the other member of the Ashborn, Tirra Elundriel has been replaced with three flesh golems, collectively referred to as “The Leatherworks”. The team is managed by a wine merchant named Amber Nydall, who may or may not be romantically involved with Auric.
Auric’s Warband sailed through the first two rounds of competition in the Games. During the first round, Khelleck did not cast a single spell, but just watched Auric and the golems tear through the competition. Before the third round, however, Khelleck was murdered by Captain Okoral, and Loris Raknian attempted to offer up Auric in a ritual intended to restore Raknian’s youth and virility. Raknian did not succeed.
