Skogr

Meet Iver

By |November 26th, 2013|

Iver is a varl who has a friendship with Rook and helps out in the land of men quite often.

When Skogr was still young, Iver wandered into the town’s center, startling the settlers from Rundwall who had rarely seen a varl before. He’s never said why he left varl lands to help men build a small town, but each chieftain in Skogr’s family line is happy to have him. He’s known Rook since the man was young, and the two formed a fast kinship.

Meet Rook

By |November 14th, 2013|

Rook is a skilled hunter from a long line of woodsmen who have lived in Skogr, though none of his family have survived the long, hard winters of the north. Since childhood, he has been close friends with the town’s resident varl, Iver. His talents quickly landed him the position of huntmaster of Skogr, and Rook wrestles with wanting to teach his daughter, Alette, to become a self-sufficient woman while also keeping her safe from harm, something he was unable to do for his wife Aldis years ago.
