Three mismatched adventurers set out on a journey that will prove to be far longer and stranger than any of them could possibly anticipate.

Grimmbros and Ignatious

Grimm  and Ig 2 small

Grimmbros Darktale Woeweaver and  Ignatious.

Grimmbros is an erudite urgh-bane, a sporting legend, a giant among chicken-scratchers.
He is about to leave all that is dear to him and face some of the most incredible battles of his life.
Towering above such lesser creatures as knohms and renlings, Grimmbros is not easily taken advantage of.

Urgh-banes are large, heavy-set creatures with a love of the odd fracas and other somewhat indelicate pursuits.
