Erky Timbers

Gnome, Cleric/Illusionist

Erky Timbers When asked about his past, Erky Timbers tells you that he is an illusionist and priest of the gnome god Baravar Cloakshadow, the god of gnome mages. He speaks the languages of common, kobold, goblin, and his gnome dialect. He was trained as a protector of his gnome village outside of the Cormyr region. He grew up learning how to fight goblins that were always attacking his village.

His instructors realized early on that he was good with magic and not with the sword. So they taught him how to cast illusions against the goblins. He was very good, if he does say so himself. However, during one raid against the goblins, he was mortally wounded. His patrol found him dying and raced him back to the clerics for healing.

Erky says that while lying on the table in the temple, he had a vision from the god Baravar Cloakshadow. Baravar told him that he would not die because the god had a task for him. He was to go find the missing tome, Treasure of the Golden Hills. The god told him that he must recover this important tome for his people.

So now Erky is a cleric/illusionist. He knows what his life's task is and feels it is his duty to inspire other gnomes about their gods. Although Baravar never told him where the tome could be found, he knows that Baravar will give him the knowledge he needs when Erky is ready for it. He was traveling to the town of Saltmarsh when he took the wrong road out of Oakhurst and got captured by the goblins.
