Description and History
used to be very carefree and friendly, had the attitude of taking the world by the
bullhorns. However, after many years of adventure and heroism, combined with the failure
of Myth Drannor, has instilled in him a seriousness and ruthlessness in battle that has
even made a few fiends shudder.
Jeiroth is the unknown prodigy of the gold elf Coronal Eltargrim Irithyl and the
moon elf Sashaela Ulondarr. Jeiroth grew up not knowing who his father was. All he knew
was that he was not the same breed as his moon elf family. Nevertheless, his family loved
him very much and he grew up in a society were gold elves were considered to be the
"nobler" elf. He also received unanimous "gifts" at every Correlon's
Peace celebration. These included swords of minor magic, books of elven history, and even
a minor cantrip book, which he hungrily read. At the age of 40 he was "awarded"
a scholarship to study at the Cathshee Bladesinger School. It was the top school in all of
Cormanthor. He learned both the bladesong and art (elves refer to magic as art) from the
school and also learned the martial art of iron foot from sensei Mutishoru, a very very
old and powerful river dragon who had migrate from the fledgling Shun empire to travel.
Mutishoru disguised himself as an old oriental man. It took much patience and the events
were many but suffice it to say that Jeiroth finally learned it.
When he is happy or with friends, he occasionally exhibits that youngish happy and
Jeiroth the novice bladesinger went on many adventures some of them
included returning a moonblade lost to house Aunglor in Venom's Knoll. Others included the
slaying of a lost cabal of mages trying to revive the slumbering evils (phaerimm) of
Netheril. He also learned a lot by infiltrating the dangerous vaults of Uvaeren and that's
were he got his artifact "Thrashkalar". He also brought back great knowledge
back to Myth Drannor which was shared with the Armathors and Ahk'Faern. Coronal Eltargrim
himself saw to his appointment to Armathor position, though he was often granted leave to
carry on his adventuring.
All of his carefree successes came to an abrupt halt when he was
called to the rule tower for a private audience with the Coronal himself! In his private
chamber Coronal Eltargrim Irithyl confessed to Jeiroth of his parentage and of how proud
he was of his only son. Confused as he was Jeiroth tried to welcome his father into his
life as best he could, but just two weeks later, he saw his father the Coronal stand upon
the rule tower and forever pass away from the world. The tragedy did not end there as the
scramble for the Ary'Kerym rule blade sent houses to war against one another. He would
later sadly reflect how they resembled some of the houses he would later see in the drow
city of Mezzoberanzan. Though he was partially of royal blood, the next in line would be
his cousin and one time crush Aravea. She was later found murdered in her bed. Yet he
would still not arise to try the claiming ceremony, and as the other houses knew him only
as an Ulondarr, many thought the royal family all dead and the rule up for grabs. He cried
many a night at the shrill screaming of the elves that failed the claiming ceremony. Their
penalty was always death. The ultra powerful and benevolent wizardess known as the
Srinshee constantly urged him to try, but alas, in his heart he felt that he could not. It
was certainly a time of troubles. Many events passed but finally led up to the Weeping
War. Jeiroth fought long and hard, even volunteering to become one of the N'Velar (shadow
warriors). He carried out many hit and run missions and even slew the yugoloth general
Msrzitt in the ruins of Uvaeren.
In the end all seemed lost as Aulmpiter, the head Nycaloth commander,
led the army of darkness into Myth Drannor. Jeiroth took Keryvian from his dying elf
commander's hands and personally led the remnant army of light to several victories,
earning him the nickname "Fflar". These accumulated with Jeiroth killing many
yugoloths while screaming for Aulmpiter's head. The Nycaloth mistakenly entered the duel
and Jeiroth struck the killing blow. Both were thought dead but Jeiroth was transported to
one of Fenmarel's homes, were the Outcast God offered him a deal. Details are unclosed but
it is safe to say that Jeiroth must wander the realms and not stay in one place for too
long (measures in elf years) before having to continue his wandering. In exchange Fenmarel
granted Jeiroth eternal life in the form of him not aging or feeling the call to
Arvanaith. Jeiroth therefore was sent back to Myth Drannor, were he met up with nothing
but death and destruction. Therefore, he decided to leave for Kara Tur, the fabled home of
his now dead sensei.
He has since been to thousands of locals and even traversed many of
the known planes. He longs for the day that he can return to Myth Drannor and rebuild his
father's legacy. He will need help in the form of heroes to do so, however. There is over
600 years of adventuring which is undetailed, but trust me, this elf has done the
incredible and lived (barely) to tell about it (including the killing of a demigod!).
Jeiroth has recently (30 years ago) become a Harper and has some
alliances in Shadowdale. He even earned respect from a very, very old wizard there
(guess?), who remembers him somewhat from Myth Drannor. Very soon now he will begin to set
up his plan for the glorious return of the City of Song.
Unlike his gold elf people, Jeiroth accepts and befriends N'tel Quessir, but trusting
anybody is something Jeiroth does not do very often.
"Thrashkalar" is a slim mithril rod with an apparent
metallic gold dragon embracing it. Once per day Thrashkalar may be summoned and will
appear as a great old wyrm with full powers. Thrashkalar will remain for a total of eight
hours before he must go. He is tied to the rod. Thrashkalar is invincible in rod form but
should he be killed in mortal form, his essence will forever be planar, and the rod will
disappear. Evil masters will find that Thrashkalar will pervert their commands as much as
possible, hopefully to their death. Thrashkalar was actually a creation of the Aryvandaar
Empire, who used to give these to dragon riders who became war heroes.
Iron foot is a martial art that emphasizes usage of swords
with the legs as powerful secondary weapons. Damage is 1-10 hp per kick plus strength
bonus. If used in conjunction with sword fighting, the fighter receives a +1 initiative
and to hit bonus due to his unusual strike (instead of using the sword!)
