The Shackled City
Branos is a friendly fellow, often walking about with a smile on his face. Branos grew up in a happy family whose favourite means of passing time was eating. Luckily father Atos could bring enough food on the table by working diligently as a carpenter. The only thing that kept Branos away from the dinner table were his endeavours in mastering transmutation magic. His thirst for knowledge and ability in this art has lead him on a quest far, far away from the merry table full of food at home. Studying in a small wizard’s college in a town in far away Impiltur, Branos learnt a lot. But now the grandwizard has been killed by his rival and an all out hunt* on the college’s attendees starting has Branos on the run. Arriving in Cauldron, far, far away from happy home, he hopes to remain out of the hands of the cult known only to him as the Heralds of Blackness….
*the reason for the hunt on previous students of Grandwizard Puk Dravin is unknown, but it seems to have something to do with a spell that the Grandwizard was researching.
