Grandma Nym the Gnomish Wizard
Hailing from the Gnomish city-state of Linlos in Southern Gwandoya, Nimera Baker (a.k.a. Grandma Nim) is on a quest to find the fabled Muffin of Peace. Her quest led her to the ocean side city of Annan where she met with a raucous Orc Kordic cleric named Grog Stormsorc who had sailed across the Ositar Expanse with a Human druid named Cam Durron. He had recently taken a Halfling monk named Mizuki into his motley crew going on an adventure to the Northern Wastes. Nim joined their adventuring group and hopes that the answers she seeks are in The Northern Wastes…
A baker in the town of Reykjaven says that he knows some information about the recipe for the Muffin of Peace, but that Nim must prove herself worthy of such secrets. She must go the volcano Hegnill and gather some magma from the Underdark beneath. If she has the strength to make it and the intelligence to keep it, the magma will prove her worthiness. She succeeded in her mission after some negotiation with a Fire Elemental and returned to Reykjaven.
Grog Stormsorc the Orc Cleric
Hailing from the seafaring Harpoon Isles southeast of the Drow Empire in Micarmeth and east of the Dwarven lease on Kal'micar, Grog was taken up as a slave on a Drow war galley at a young age. However on one fateful day a great storm arose and destroyed the ship sending Grog into the wild waves of the storm tossed ocean. Days later miraculously Grog washed up back home on the Harpoon Isles; he took the name Stormsorc to commemorate this occasion.
Grog then served on smuggling vessel for a number of years moving illicit goods between the Drow and Dwarven lands. Until one day when preparing to go on another voyage a great storm wracked his home island he was swept out to sea again. Days later he floated back in from the ocean to learn that his entire smuggling ship had been caught and executed by the Drow.
Having been saved twice now by storms Grog decided that he was the chosen one of the god of storms, he then went and looked up who the god of storms was and found that it was Kord who was also the god of strength. Grog decided then to become a cleric of the great god, Kord.
After completing basic Cleric training at a small Kordic temple in Kal’micar Grog sought out adventure and a chance to use his new Clerical powers. He joined the local Adventurer's Guild and answered the call to join a struggling guild in Islanksjur. On his travels, he met up with a Human druid named Cam Durron who joined him before he crossed the great Ositar Expanse to Gwandoya where he met Grandma Nim and Mizuki.
During their adventure to find and rescue the Guild Leader, Orsik Holyhammer who was unfortunately infected with eldritch lycanthropy, Grog received a vision, most likely from Kord, telling him to retrieve his Rod of Lightning from the Temple of Melora under the sea near the Naga city of Odelhi. After obtaining the rod, Grog and his friends were forced to fight a Sahaguin General who had been driven mad by Zehir and his corruption of the temple and emerged victorious.
Later when they tried to cure Orsik’s Lycanthropy the God of Darkness & Poison intervened and tried to claim Orsik’s soul to complete a dark ritual which would allow him to revive his fallen daughter Athalas. Knowing no way to stop a god Grog convinced Orsik to kill himself so that his soul would go to Bahamut and not be available to be claimed by Zehir. Orsik did but was later stabilized and in the end Grog had to break his neck himself. The party survived the encounter but killing Orsik and being told by Athalas that Kord was female and once a lover of Zehir left Grog undergoing a crisis of faith.
Grog gave up the Lightning Rod which he had claimed form the underwater temple of Melora using it to bind the temple of Kord on Islanksjur to take care of the orphans which had been Orsik’s holy duty before Grog killed him. Now Grog’s mind is filled with questions and doubts as he prepares to leave Islanksjur with his friends.

Robert Pattinson the Half-Elf Bard
Robert Pattinson grew up a sweaty and socially awkward half-elf, immersing himself in exotic cultures and texts (aka Japanese manga) to stave off real interactions that risked mockery. His loneliness drove him to purchase a pillow waifu and become an active member on the bird-carrying messageboards. Through the WWW (world wide wren)Robert was comforted by the knowledge that he was not alone.
Unfortunately, When Robert met up with others who shared his passions in real life he realized how incredibly off-putting they were in person. He gave into some serious self-reflection and eventually decided to rebrand. Robert began to travel the land hoping to star in his own adventures instead of living vicariously through his manga heroes. He leaned heavily into the worlds of gambling and performance to make up for his lack of people skills. Despite this, he still has his roots in being a massive fetish-y loser which becomes painfully obvious if anyone tries to have a real conversation with him.
