Thom Hammerblade

Dwarf Weaponsmith

Description:

Thom Hammerblade is a dwarven weaponsmith from the Kingdom of Throal. He stands 4’2" tall and weighs 165 pounds. Thom learned the Discipline of the Weaponsmith to honor his father, who was killed in the Theran War. Thom soon grew bored with life within the Kingdom of Throal, and at the age of 26 set out to seek adventure, determined to help the people of Barsaive reclaim their world from the aftermath of the Scourge.

Thom distrusts all humans, and particularly distrusts Therans. The face he shows the world is somewhat harsh and bitter, but he is a fair and just man. His adventures since leaving Throal have taught him much about the other races of Barsaive, and he has learned that what a man can see is often only an illusion hiding the truth.

Bio:

I am named Thom Hammerblade, weaponsmith from the Kingdom of Throal. I chose the Discipline of the Weaponsmith to honor my father, killed years ago during the Theran War. I shall enter your kaer. But first, hear my story. Not long after my initiation I left the dwarven kingdom, bored with the comfortable life within the mountains of Throal. I sought adventure, and to help reclaim the lands of Barsaive, both from the aftermath of the Scourge, and from the power-hungry Therans, who seek to enslave us.

Following a map given to me by my mentor, I found the Coil River a few days’ journey from Throal. As the Coil is but a tributary of the mighty Serpent River, I knew that if I could find passage on a riverboat it would take me to lands far away. I joined the crew of a t’skrang riverboat soon afterward, heading down the Serpent toward Lake Pyros and the Servos Jungle.

I left ship at Lake Pyros, and traveled many days encountering no one. A band of ork scorchers discovered me one evening as I slept, and took me captive. Death was to be my fate at their hands, but a party of crystal raiders from the Twilight Peaks attacked the scorcher camp, and during the troll raiders’ assault, I managed to escape. My travels eventually led to your village.

I have said I will enter your kaer and confront whatever terror awaits within. Who owns the courage to join me?
