The Age of Worms
The righteous bastard in charge of the Chapel of Heironeous in Diamond Lake. Preached about public do-goodery, but did nothing about it. Originally from Greyhawk. Took to sleeping in his plate mail after the garrison riot on 20 Patchwall 595, which was lucky as there was an attempt on his life a few days later. Merris Sandovar and Melinde were court-martialed for the crime and dishonorably discharged, to the bafflement of the entire garrison. Several things about the attempt were confusing: the attackers were heard (and their voices recognized) but not seen; crossbows were used, but both Merris and Melinde typically used longbows favored by most of the garrison; and the bolts were poisoned, a tactic considered cowardly by the Lawful Good members of the garrison and followers of Heironeous. However, when the two were confronted in Sandovar’s quarters, well-used crossbows were found. Valkus Dunn was killed in a fall during the earthquakes that shook Diamond Lake on 4 Ready’reat, CY 595.
