Dunstrand Rising - The Beginning

Fate of sir Farold

Sir farold dead; 9158

The Name of Sir Farold becomes synonymous with courage. As agent of the Duke, he rides tirelessly to enforce the Duke’s law on his land and to ensure his neighbors – trators to the Riverdans, know his wrath. After the death of all his friends by 9154, his will is swung full tilt into the cause of the Riverdans and his family by marriage. He is angry and refuses to be much of a father to his own son. His son was born in 9145, in Cormoranthe. His mother was attacked by a ghoul when he was in the womb, and they say he is acursed. Farold and his wife were on a tour of their lands when they were attacked. His mother was torn from her horse and the ghoul tried to eat her belly but was killed before he could – though she nearly bleed to death. After his birth, his mother never recovered and was always sickly for years. It was said his son was born with a dark stain upon his soul… and Farold was not pleased by either the truth or the rumors. He quests for Sandovhal in 9152 and in 9153 he returns to Dwindor Swamp and searches for the Sandovhal’s daughter. Discovering that she had been taken by forces of Gwinn, he allies himself with the Witch and One-Claw again and assaults their position on the edge of Scar Flow. He rescues her just in time from some foul sacrificial ceremony to the Sea Goddess Elancil. Farold abandons his position and lands in all but name and travels Dunstrand seeking something to fill the hole inside him. For a moment only, he finds peace in Loamwold, skirmishing with the Umbakians. He is accused of breaking the peace in 9158, and wanted by the Umbakians. He falls in with a priest of Gaia named Barkhand, a martial monkish sort and halfling native of Loamwold. Emboldened by his belief that he once again has a cause, he and and Barkhand are assinated while sleeping in an ancient beastwood on the west coast of Loamwold. The Silver Talents of Umbak lay claim on his death – and also claim it was a fair fight that Farold lost in combat, and Barkhand tried to adjure unnatural protection and so was too cut down for his meddling in the duel. There are various accounts of where his remains were taken – some say to Westwick Downs, some say in one of the graveyards of the Order of the Red Heart, others claim his family plot in the city of Tamblin. One rumor even claims his remains are with those of his best friend and mentor when he was young, Father Havier (of Rastur).
