Bhardor Silvertongue [Sessions #1-4]
As Bhardor, he awoke with Dishrag the Elf Cleric of Wanjo, Belwyn Darkhand the Halfling Fighter, Eondul the Human Wizard, and Katnip Everdeen the Rogue in the PIT OF THE DYING. They acquired a Star Sapphire in return for agreeing to slay a dragon for Snizzle, Cleric of Kroakatoa.
Bhardor, Dishrag and Katnip eventually made their way through caverns infested with War’todes. After losing Katnip in the MUSHROOM FOREST CAVERN, he and Dishrag found the DRAGON’S LAIR and fought the dragon and perished, though the dragon did afterward choke on Bhardor’s arm and die.
The incident was immortalized in Dandylion Discord’s ballad, The Vengeance of Bhardos. It is noteworthy that the celebrated and often inebriated bard Dandylion got Bhardor’s name wrong.
Bofril Greybender [Sessions #5-7]
After their celebrated deaths, the Bard God Hero resurrected Bhardor and Dishrag into the bodies they originally inhabited before the Mad God Moriarty magically kidnapped them. Making Weddumlir Aleshield and Bofril members of Adventure Inc, Hero returned them to the TEMPLE OF WANJO, where they awoke in the EXAMINATION ROOM and were reunited with Katnip.
An ill-fated fight with overwhelming Wart’ode forces in the ROOM OF POISON DARTS led to a retreat into the LIBRARY, where Bofril and Katnip met their end wand of an Ipsimus.
He and Katnip found themselves in the REALM OF B.O.B. The God of Death granted them new husks, but demanded they procure him a Star Sapphire within a tenday in return.
Awakening in their new husks in the ROOM OF EIGHT, Acindor the Human Fighter (née Bofril) and Thril Wolfsbane the Elf Fighter (née Katnip) were reunited with Weddumlir; however, the TEMPLE OF WANJO’s magical maze spit them out back into the EXAMINATION ROOM, where they were captured by Wart’odes.
Acindor [Sessions #7-8, 11-31, 33-38, 40-46]
When something was discovered amiss in the TEMPLE PRISON, he and the other Wart’ode prisoners were sent ahead to investigate.
Acindor was one of the party who vanished after the gods interrupted their quest with visions. By the will of B.O.B., he awoke with Thril Wolfsbane and Weddumlir in what turned out to be the KITCHEN of SMUGGLER SPEAK. Their exploration was cut short when they encountered the Corrupted in the DINING HALL. Even though other adventurers in SMUGGLER SPEAK came to their aid, Acindor was wounded to the point where he was forced to retreat to the PATIO until the Corrupted were vanquished.
After a much-needed rest, Acindor and his comrades were accosted by the goddess Oxenbane, who returned the ghost of Thril Wolfsbane, recently slain in the encounter with the Corrupted, and set them upon a quest to end the corruption of SMUGGLER SPEAK and locate the husks of Thril and Zayn Carthin the Arbiter of Hero to reunite them with their spirits.
Finding their way to the SANCTUARY OF EVERLY, they encountered and fought a Corrupted Basilisk. Afterward, they discovered a Cuervos who identified himself as Nobody. Interrogations of the creature were cut short when Acindor took Nobody’s hat and it turned out to be a Mimic Familiar. Acindor was immediately bitten.
A brief skirmish led to the creature forming itself into a brane, an organic portal to the Cuervos’ Soul Sieve, known as a CHAMBER OF CORRUPTION. The Cuervos within defended their domain savagely. Weddumlir was slain by friendly fire amid the conflict. In an attempt to reunite Thril Wolfsbane with the ghost elf’s husk, Acindor was likewise slain by a Corrupted Jelly; however, the Soul Sieve prevented his spirit from immediately departing to either Umbra or the Realm of B.O.B., even though B.O.B. himself was made aware of his activities in the CHAMBER OF CORRUPTION by the event of his death near the portal to B.O.B.’s Realm of Lost Things. He felt B.O.B.’s strong disapproval and felt himself being drawn to the portal; however, he was spared whatever fate B.O.B. had in store for him by the intervention of Hero Inc. During the the fight as a displaced ghost, he managed to repossess his husk.
After the arrival of Nathan Garney, Human Cleric of Everly, a reborn Weddumlir Aleshield, Shield Knight of Baldnoggin, Acindor and his party defeated the CHAMBER OF CORRUPTION.
Afterward, they visited the SKY BAZAAR of SMUGGLER SPEAK as heroes. After striking deals with Gunny Saks and Fizwick’s Fantasticals, he and his party entered the TEMPLE MINES to retrieve lost materials at the behest of the SKY BAZAAR merchants. Acindor came from a mining family, so his knowledge in this area was very useful during this quest. Unfortunately, the adventurers stepped into a fey ring leading to the ELDERWYLD.
Narrowly escaping being devoured by a house mimic, they exited the ELDERWYLD and found themselves in a quarantined section of FARRAGO’s CAERULEUM SECTOR. They were able to escape the quarantined island of SAINT ALBANS by using the sewers, where Acindor revealed that sewage was one of his bigger phobias. Unhappily, his phobia was exacerbated by an attack from a sewer shark.
Escaping into the subterranean CATACOMBS, they made their way to the CHAPEL OF WANJO and the above ground island of MIDDLEBOROUGH. Spying their faces on wanted posters, they tried to pass by unnoticed but were instead chased off the island by an angry mob of Redforges. On PEVENSIE ISLAND, they were ushered through a magical door to CLAW ISLAND by Fizzle the Fifth.
After spending a night at the EXCELSIOR, the adventurers made their way to the ROSE COLISEUM, where they met the god Gilgamesh and Gnome Shanarock the Dwarf Rogue, the chosen Champion of the Nylbolgia in the forthcoming Gotternacht Games. Acindor agreed to be the Champion of Hero in the Games in order to appease the Bard God of Heroes.
Making their way to PEACOCK ISLAND on a quest to rid Nathan Garney of his assassin’s mark, the adventurers squared off against an orc warband called the Fearless in order to restore power to the PEACOCK ISLAND DOCKS and the tram up the mountains to Obscurus’ MANSION. Thril Wolfsbane was killed by the Fearless’ ettin champion during the fight.
Afterward, the survivors of a shipwreck joined their quest: Del Erenaeth the Elf Monk, Fil the Half-Elf Cleric of Zephyr, Oberyx the Half-Elf Warlock oathbound to Fulgar, and Zook Bafflestone the Gnome Artficer. The other castaways chose to remain at the DOCKS.
The morning brought an unexpected rain of fish. Seeing flying scavengers descending for a feeding frenzy, the party made their way speedily to the front gates, which miraculously opened seemingly of their own accord. A band of kobold welcomed them, their Bard having watched Davroar and the others battle the Fearless. After a song in Davroar’s honor, they sent them headlong into a pit, which they were assured led to the tower they needed to reach. After exploring a CELLAR, they emerged back into the morning sun where they were joined again by castaways Kaid the Goliath Barbarian, Kudac the Half-Orc Cleric of Baldnoggin, David the Half-Elf Wizard and newcomer, Sionna the Simic Hybrid Bard. He noted with surprise that Gnome Shanarock was also with them.
The kobolds proved treacherous, attacking them from behind and driving them into a large tent. There, the party was confronted by Pyrrha Imperium and her wyrmlings. The red dragon was chained by an imprisonment spell, but was still formidable enough to force the party to negotiate. After Davroar used his Key of Opening to free Pyrrha, she drew a Portal Circle on the ground and sent the party and her wyrmlings through to her LAIR, though she herself could not fit on her dragon form.
Enroute, the party was intercepted by the magical gravitas of one of Obscurus’ permanent portal circles, so they were deposited in Obscurus’ RELIQUARY instead of Pyrrha’s LAIR. There, the party learned more about the Prophecy of the Starkiller and the Plates of Farcevolt.
Amid the confusion of a ratipede ambush, the party did not at first notice that Acindor was not with them when they left the RELIQUARY. He and Wedd were delayed by the arrival of Odin Thunderhammer the Dwarf Fighter and Sionna the Simic Hybrid Bard through the RELIQUARY’s portal. They made a hasty exit after the newcomers warned them that the Red Circle was hot on their heels; however, they ran afoul of the ratipede after the others escaped it. They themselves only survived their own encounter by the intervention of I-am-not, an ancient kobold, who banished the creature and then showed them the way to the LIBRARY via the ARBORETUM portal.
In the LIBRARY, they lost Sionna but met Dumplin Ages the Halfling Barbarian and her death dogs. After being reunited by Meldor, Nathan and Kudac, he helped subdue the ratipede after it swallowed Wedd. Shortly after, he and the rest of the party at last faced the Red Circle in a multistoried running battle through Obscurus’ LIBRARY. During the encounter, he willingly picked up a sentient symbiotic armblade. Wedd and Odin did not survive the encounter.
Afterward he and his fellow adventurers were joined by Lightfingers the Elf Rogue, Nellson Williams the red Tiefling Artificer with a robotic left arm and his steel defender gorilla Cupcake, Nikolas the brass Dragonborn Fighter, Pigsnot the Elf Fighter, and Eondul the Human Wizard. The goddess Canon then appeared and charged them with opening the Water Portal on CAERULEUM and transported them to the TEMPLE OF WANJO.
During an altercation between Shelby and Davroar Hollyshield (whom they had not seen since they left Obscurus’ RELIQUARY), Lightfingers opened an accursed book resulting in an ominous-sounding gong. Acindor and the party were forced to stave off an undead army of ghouls in the LIBRARY until they could escape into the WAR’TODE TUNNELS.
After surveying the WAR’TODE ENCAMPMENT from a high ledge, Acindor fell, landing in a latrine ditch and alerting the War’todes to their presence. During the battle which followed, Acindor found himself teleported to the WATER PORTAL PLATFORM by Davroar Hollysword’s Glory of Moriarty spell. In the midst of fighting for his life against ghouls, War’todes, fr’ogres and a zombie T-rex, Acindor found himself accosted by his wife Melissa, recently freed from one of the War’tode prisoner cages. Together, they passed through the activated Water Portal to FARRAGO.
