This +land holds many peoples, from the kind-hearted and generally +culinarily-inclined Halflings, to the proud Dwarves in their mighty dwarfholds, +to the somewhat secretive Elves in their forest enclaves. + +The Reach takes its name from Prometheus, Life-Giver. This massive tree, +visible from miles upon miles away, has stood watch over this region since time +immemorial. ### Players and Characters -[Insert list of players, character names/aliases, basic information here] +<div class="wrap"> +<h4><u>Tygbar "Tyg" Frostbeard</u></h4> +<p><strong>Player:</strong> Jake</p> +<p><strong>Race:</strong> Dwarf</p> +<p><strong>Class:</strong> Wizard</p> +<p> +<strong>Backstory:</strong> +Tygbar grew up in the slums outskirting the Dwarven stronghold +known as Severgard and was taken in by Qualen Quillsharpener—a Gnome wizard who +promised an apprenticeship to Tygbar—after noticing Tygbar's unique magical +abilities for a Dwarf. However, Tygbar mostly ended up doing menial chores and +was never directly taught by Qualen only ever learning things in passing and +through reading Qualen's notes. One day, Qualen was attacked in his tower by an +Orcish raid which Tygbar tried to stop but was too late. Now Tygbar is left to +fend for himself carrying only basic supplies, Qualen's spellbook which he now +uses as his own, and a magically sealed letter from Qualen addressed to him. +</p> +</div> + +<div class="wrap"> +<h4><u>Five</u></h4> +<p><strong>Player:</strong> Dan</p> +<p><strong>Race:</strong> Warforged</p> +<p><strong>Class:</strong> Artificer</p> +<p> +<strong>Backstory:</strong> +Five was created by Qualen Quillsharpener years before Tygbar ever met him. +Five maintains a shop in the outskirts of the slums around Severgard selling +odds and ends and doing whatever bits of research interest him.
