The Age of Worms
Greyhawk artist who allowed himself to get caught up in a competition with Imron Gauthfellow that ultimately spelled disaster. After unwrapping a painting from Gauthfellow, Archerus was sent to another plane where he would have died, in the form of a squirming worm, at the hands of a painted hag and two chain devils, had the party not rescued him. He lost his servant, Tharivol, to an ill-conceived scheme against Gauthfellow. Pale, self-effacing man of middle years with salt-and-pepper hair and gray eyes.
