Thordric Magmamane - Let the Dice Roll
by Margaret Krohn on July 26th, 2015

If you didn't know, I was a guest on Let the Dice Roll which is one of Chuky616's shows over at ​twitch.tv/chuky616. I thought it would be cool to share my character's background story and what nots for anyone who was curious. :) 

Name: Thordric Magmamane
Current Party: Filius, Luciel, Xandriel
Gender: Male
Race: Mountain Dwarf
Level: 4 Wizard
Age: 300 - Which has left me a bit senile at times.
Appearance: Taking after my Hylar heritage, I’m quite tall for a dwarf at 5 feet 150lbs. As a Magmamane, I don a well-groomed large red beard.
  • Other Attributes: I can often be found smoking out of my Chillum Pipe.
Background: Astronomer Sage
A letter from a dead colleague posing a question you have not yet been able to answer:
I found a message that reads, “Breakthrough, a pattern lies within, calling forth a vision ingress! The empyrean are coming!” I assume this is from my colleague, and close friend, Findrog Goldspine. He went missing shortly after I found the note, and when I went to investigate his disappearance, I found his house ransacked with a few trails of blood strewn about.

Findrog and I were both Astrophysic professors at the Vuldehrn University, preserving the knowledge of the branch of astronomy that deals with the physical properties of celestial bodies and with the interaction between matter and radiation in the interior of celestial bodies and in interstellar space.

For the past seventy three years, we had been studying an ancient tablet we found one summer in a pyramid. Findrog must’ve figured out how to activate the rune. We always knew it had another purpose. We could feel it. The note left so much unanswered. What pattern did he find? And what was this vision ingress he mentioned? When and why were the empyrean coming? Where were they coming from and for? Do they know I have the shard? And part of me wondered...or maybe it was more of a “hoped”, could Findrog still be alive? No body had been found. Either way, the question I continually pondered, was...What happened to him?
Elysium Shard
The Elysium Shard is an ancient runic tablet that when activated properly opens a viewing portal that allows the user to see into the Celestial Plane. The runes on the shard contain a riddle. When the words are spoken properly, the runes on the shard have a glowy orange sheen, and an orange rimmed viewing portal appears within 5 meters of the activation location.
  • The Celestial Plane is currently corrupted, and the corruption is spreading. The beings within need our help.
  • I found the shard while searching an ancient pyramid with my old friend, Findrog Goldspine, who I believe has been murdered.

​​Chillum Pipe
My Chillum Pipe is made of granite, collected in the Vuldehrn Mountains where I grew up as a child. It has Dwarven runes engraved in its side. When used the runes glow with a magical effect that increases the potency of my Chillum.
