Classic Adventures


Half-Orc, Fighter/Cleric

GrozharGrozhar was born in Zenthil Keep, a son to a half-orc priest of Bane. He was a captain in Zhentarim army until recently, when one of the numerous intrigues within the Keep led to his father's death and him becoming a hunted fugitive. Now he seeks to dissapear in Sembia by joining one of the numerous mercenary bands.

When Grozhar was born, everyone expected him to become a priest of Bane like his father. Unfortunately, Bane perished in battle against Torm when Grozhar was four years old. Still, his life is directed by principles of Bane's philosophy. He is a powerful warrior with a tendency to look down on almost everyone, highly intolerant of "weaklings" and "fools". His attitude has made him some enemies in the past and will certainly make some more in the future.

Special Equipment

Morning Star +2, 'Hopecrusher'

This was once the favored weapon of Bane while Bane was a mortal. Bane at the time was a member of the Dead Three, a triad of mortals sworn to achieve godhood. Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul forged an unholy pact, agreeing that they would work together to seek ultimate power, or die in the attempt. Over the length and breadth of the Realms they strode, seeking powerful magic and spells and defying death at every turn. No matter what monster they confronted or what spells they braved, the three mortals emerged unscathed at every turn. Eventually the trio destroyed one of the Seven Lost Gods, Borem, of the Lake of Boiling Mud, and they each seized a portion of Borem's divine essence for themselves.

The trio then journeyed into the Gray Waste and sought out the Castle of Bone to confront Jergal. The three approached the god Jergal and threatened him for the godly powers. Jergal, all powerful to the point that he had long ago wished to step down the throne, asked: "Who among you shall rule?", and the trio immediately fell to fighting amongst themselves. Jergal proposed that they solve this problem by bowling skulls of his liches. It turned out that Bane bowled the farthest, and was thus able to choose his domain. He said: As winner, I choose to rule for all eternity as the ultimate tyrant. I can induce hatred and strife at my whim, and all will bow down before me while in my kingdom. Thus he claimed the portfolios of Tyranny, Hatred, and Strife, ascended as a greater deity.

Hopecrusher is a finely crafted weapon. The head is constructed of mithril with blunted steel spikes. The haft is fashioned from highly polished oak with a reinforced steel center. The pommel of the weapon is capped with a seal depicting symbol of green rays squeezed forth from a black fist.
