Tamclar the Shorn

TamclarTamclar is an ex-miner from Kolbenborg. Tamclar is stout and brawny, even more so than the average dwarf. He is a valiant companion to those he trusts, and a determined enemy to his foes. His knowledge of mining and underground passages has proven essential to the party on more than one occasion.

When Tamclar travels with the party they enjoy the following bonuses:

+4 on Survival Checks when underground.
+2 on Knowledge Architecture and Engineering Checks.
+1 on Attack rolls against goblinoids and orcs.

Tamclar’s Story:

Tamclar met the party when they journeyed to Kolbenborg in search of Alastar Land, in Episode 3. They discovered the town had been overrun by goblins and strange plant-zombies. Upon arrival at the docks of Kolbenborg, after crossing Diamond Lake, they found a boat house near the docks surrounded by goblins who had set it on fire! Hearing the sounds of fighting from within, the party chased the goblins off, and entered the boat house

Within they discovered a bloody, sooty dwarf, his head and beard shaved, standing protectively over the still form of a female dwarf and a dwarf child. Tamclar introduced himself, asked for their aid, and helped the party move his family from the burning boathouse to the greycloak’s ship, the Harkness. In return for thier aid, Tamclar offered to help them find Alastar Land, and hopefully remedy the goblin situation in Kolbenborg.

Tamclar told the group that he had shaved his beard and hair in daily prayer to Morradin to cure his wife of the disease that was slowly killing her. It was determined that the disease was Red Ache, but unfortunately, the party could do nothing for the dwarf woman at the time.

After helping collapse the mines that the goblins had used to gain access to Kolbenborg, and rescuing the assistant of Alastar Land, Brolan, Tamclar asked to be taken to Diamond Lake to relocate. During the journey aboard the Harkness across Diamond Lake, the greycloaks were able to heal Tamclar’s wife. Tamclar took this as a sign that he had been praying to the wrong gods, and decided at that point to dedicate his life to Wee Jas.

Months later, Tamclar joined the Cabal of Wee Jas as a lay-member, and began his studies in earnest. However, the bleak teachings of the Cabal constantly opposed his dwarven upbringing, and he began to struggle. Eventually he was threatened with expulsion from the Cabal. As a final effort, Mossad sent him with the party on a (hopefully) long and uneventful journey to Blackwall Keep to do some soul-searching and decide for himself if the Cabal is the place for him in Episode 13 through Episode 17.

The party first meets Tamclar in Episode 3.
