The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
Once the greatest knight in the Kingdom of
Phiadon , the mighty and beloved
Zardruzin fell victim to the vicious
curse of a vengeful dragon -- the mighty
The curse slowly and painfully took its toll on
the mighty warrior, changing him from a grand and revered
figure in the Kingdom, to a bent, withered, and hateful
Zardruzin had set out to slay Jirin-Nol, using a powerful
artifact he had recently come into possession of -- The
Wand of Dragonfire.
According to the legends, it was The Wand of Dragonfire
that was used by the band of brave adventurers who eventually
defeated the wicked dragon lord.
The wand is believed to have been shattered by Jirin-Nol's
followers, following his untimely demise, and its remains hidden
away in his secret tomb.
Zardruzin fled and hid himself in the wilds following the onset
of the curse. Many accounts tell of him spending his remaining years
in the forests of western Tysa, hidden away from the realm of man
and the world he once fearlessly defended -- the very world that now
shunned and despised him.
The hidden lair of Zardruzin, where the cursed, fallen knight spent
the remainder of his life, has long been a matter for speculation, though it
is commonly believed that its construction was facilitated by a powerful sorcerer
who remained his loyal friend until the end of his days.
Also part of Zardruzin's legend is the notion that within his hidden lair
lies the means by which to reconstruct the Wand of Dragonfire.
