GiantSlayer Book 2: The Hill Giant's Pledge
Part 3: Redlake Fort

The heroes infiltrate an abandoned border fort full of orcs, ogres, and hill giants to end the threat against Trunau once and for all, only to learn of a much greater danger: a mysterious warlord amassing an army of giants for some fell purpose.

Description Ondek is a very dapper dwarf, changing his dress and appearance to match the local fashion regularly. He is always clean and generally smiles, offering greetings to those he meets happily. He wears his dark brown hair and beard loose, with a simple but elegant headband and circlet keeping his mane out of his eyes. Typically seen wearing some variety of robe with well-fitted traveling boots, he keeps his oaken quarterstaff to hand and magical backpack nearby almost all the time.

Backstory Ondek hails from Highhelm originally, but has traveled the world so much in the past decades he might as well be from any major city. Wherever he goes, he seeks out knowledge and magical learning, as well as the cultural trappings and languages of the local peoples. He has studied giantkind thoroughly, seeking to learn their secrets and perhaps determine of some of the myths of creation relating dwarves and giants, in particular stone and fire giants, with one another.

@DM RichD

Are spells also limited to the sources listed?

Additionally, any preference for yourself or players for a pure wizard, and maybe multi-class later? 4th level spells would be sweet!


I'm withdrawing from the recruitment. I haven't had as much time as I thought I would. Best of luck to the rest of you.


Less than 12 hours to submit!

@Morg: I would prefer the spells be limited, but if from another source, I would need to approve.

I don't think there is a preference from either me or the PC's. Just a desire to slay orcs, trolls and giants!

I will try to switch by the deadline... Wizard Transmuter 7!

He's about literally changing the environment, reality to sway the outcome of the fight.

The will to power.


I just noticed this, but Felthin is only a 6th level sorcerer, not 8th =)


@DM: I've read them all. Have, so far, reduced the list to two (2) finalists, however I will take another look at all of them, tomorrow, and DM you with my two choices.

Rask -- aka david

I am assuming since there are no other posts that this is the final list of applicants.

@DM - Writing up a PM to you now.

Rask - aka david

Edit: And PM sent....


The submission window has closed and I want to thank everyone for their great submissions. I have heard back from everyone in the game except for one. Once I have their choice I will announce the latest recruit. At any rate the decision will be revealed no later than 8PM EST Wednesday (hopefully sooner!)

Again, I am grateful for the time that was put into each submission!


Good luck everyone!


Again I want to thank everyone for the great submissions.

I have heard back from everyone in the group and it seems like Ondek has won the vote!

To everyone that was not selected, thank you for your interest.

@Ondek: Please select an alias and a tagline that matches the others. They are in a tavern so it is the perfect opportunity to walk over and tell them why you want to join their merry (for dwarves) band. We'll spend a few days RPing before ramping things up this weekend.
