War’tode (Glug)

Snizzle is a War’tode Cleric of Kroakatoa, the volcano god that his species once revered before they followed War’t and called themselves Wart’odes. He lives in the caverns outside the TEMPLE OF WANJO on a ledge above the PIT OF THE DYING. He is a recent convert to Kroakatoa, having decided that the Upheavel, the shaking of CAERULEUM that occurred when the first star fell in accordance with the Starkiller Prophecy, was actually the rumbling of the volcano god. Previously, he worked for the wine steward in the TEMPLE OF WANJO. The discovery of a captive frog’re in caverns nearby confirmed his faith. He dubbed the creature the Avatar of Kroakatoa. He intends to attack Gilderwart‘s WAR’TODE ENCAMPMENT to showcase the superiority of Kroakatoa over War’t, but a young dragon stands on the path between him and his goal.

[Sessions #1, 3-4]

Our adventurers have encountered Snizzle twice.

The first group, comprised of Bhardor Silvertongue the Dwarf Bard, Dishrag the Elf Cleric of WanjoBelwyn Darkhand the Halfling Fighter, and Eondul the Human Wizard, awoke in the PIT OF THE DYING after being unknowingly “volunteered” as questing husks by Moriarty.

Snizzle addressed them from a high ledge and demanded that they take up his quest to slay a small wounded dragon in return for releasing them. The floor was littered with the rotting limbs of past tributes. Snizzle sees the tributes that rain from above from time to time as evidence that he has the favor of Kroakatoa, a feeling further confirmed by his inebriated judgment and the fact that he has fr’ogre captive whom he believed to be the Avatar of Kroakatoa in an adjoining chamber. The adventurers agreed to his quest to avoid being fed to the Avatar; however, when a fifth member of the group, Katnip Everdeen the Dwarf Rogue, previously hidden amongst the corpses made a break for the exit without making a deal, Snizzle closed the exit, trapping Eondul and Belwyn in the PIT. He almost most certainly fed them to the Avatar, though this has not been confirmed.

Later, Hogwash the Elf Bard, Pigsnout the Elf Fighter, and Meldor Ironforge the Dwarf Wizard were exploring the tunnels when Hogwash fell through a pit trap into the PIT OF THE DYING. Her friends lowered a rope and tried to bring her back up but Snizzle noticed the activity. His thunderwave swept her from the rope and killed her.

Her friends were forced to flee before he got them too!
