New D&D 3.5 NPC Turnblade the Stout

March 28, 2015 - Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 / Table Top Games

Turnblade the Stout


Like most dwarves, Turnblade spent his early years in the mines, but he was with a group that was captured by orcs after a tunnel collapse which trapped them in unknown territory.  He quickly realized that his survival depended on betraying his clan, and he chose to do so – helping the orcs to destroy the rest of his group.  Thanks to his long life span and his cunning, he has risen to be a merciless leader of an army of outlaws that prey on the fringes of mining colonies.  Now, after over a century of plunder, Turnblade has carved a small kingdom for himself, and from his stronghold he sends out his lieutenants to plunder.
