omgs so ok, there is long history here....

The Basic Lay-out for Glorin The Wretched history basically what i remember form Gesh's writings.

Glorin The Great was the most powerful Good Cleric in Dysotopia. He fought against evil etc. The Evil Gods (was never mentioned specifically who/which ones)grew angry at Glorin The Great so they constructed an armor to corrupt his soul to evil. Glorin recieved the Gift and the temptations of power that the armor had forced Glorin to give in and put the Armor on. Once he had the armor on it slowly corrupted him to evil, instead of fighting the dead he made armies of them. Glorin the Great became Glorin The Wretched and all throughout Dysotopia knew his name. Eventually his Own Former Order of Paladins was forced to Slay him and they buried him within the Kravenwood Crypts...Glorin's final wishes were to be buried with his armor and that wish the Paladins foolishly granted, Once they sealed Glorin's Tomb masses of Undead arose and the Tomb was sealed. To this day The Crypts swarm with Glorin's Undead Servants and the 4 Fallen Paladins..

What would the quest have been?

Well you know those stairways that lead to nothing in the Crypts? Each would lead to a Fallen Paladin who players would fight, each giving a piece of the puzzle so to speak. Once all Paladins were killed the Tomb could be opened and the players would fight Glorin The Wretched along with many other undead minions icon_biggrin.gif

Now to what WOULD have happened....

First maybe I should start with..who the hell is this Glorin of Many Faces?

After Glorin The Great was corrupted to become Glorin The Wretched his family fled to Neverwinter. It was there that Brant E'lead was born. His family only told him stories of Glorin The Great and never of his corruption. Eventually a wandering bard came into the city and started telling the tales of Glorin the Wretched and his defeat and how the Undead Swarmed still swarmed the Crypts...Brant, as a Priest of Kelvemor was driven mad at the fact that he was related to someone such as Glorin The Wretched. He was determined to destroy the armor and purge The Crypts and make his family's name clean. It was then he traveled to Dysotopia, however ever since he set foot on the shores of Eleriina he heard the constant voice of his great grandfather, Glorin the Wretched, echoing in his head. Glorin The Wretched wanted to be set free, he wanted conquest once again. He had felt the presence of Brant and reached out to him for help. The constant voice inside his head drove Brant to the point of insanity, he became isolated from other citizens in Eleriina, The deathly voice constantly telling him not to disgrace the legacy of the true power in the family. To not Destroy the Armor but to use it, to unleash Glorin upon Dysotopia once again....The constant reminders drove Brant to his Great-Grandfathers side, Brant renamed himself after his Great-Grandfather and called himself Glorin of Many Faces. The Many Faces bit comes from an ancient ritual Glorin The Wretched had used during his reign of terror, with Which he would be able to split himself into 4 different forms, himself, and 3 other beings who would be at his service. It was the New Glorin's intent on performing this ritual to ensure himself everlasting life in one way or another. Glorin began raising an army of both dead and living to fight for his name, and for the Glory of Glorin the Wretched. He called his army The Lost Guard of Glorin. Inorder to perform the ritual Glorin needed the Heads of 3 people, One of Good Heart, another of Neutral, and one of pure evil. With The Lost Guard of Glorin, Glorin intended on achieving this Goal, First he brought war with The Order of The White Rose determined on obtaining the head of Laz, one of Good Heart. Next he had a lonely Druid, Niroj Nelofin, assassinated taking his head as that of Neutrality. Next he stole the head of Rellik Cainam Yzarc as it lay on display after Ogt had taken back Kravenwood from the Dark Alliance and placed it in Lord Kraven's control.
During the course of these events Glorin had dedicated himself to the service of Cyric, while at the same time Gathering Undead Followers by being a thauntmage to Orcus. Glorin had formed the Church of Cyric to collect many Cyricists to the cause of Glorin The Wretched. However the Church did not last long as a church, Glorin even as the High Priest wanted more power, he wanted an army again, he wanted Glorin for himself. He began transforming The Church of Cyric once again into the Lost Guard of Glorin. Although most of the Cyricists were willing to accept the change as long as they were still allowed the worship of Cyric, one Cyricist, Fractum Atrox, grew incredibley angry at Glorin, such was born Glorin's downfall....
After Glorin had gathered all 3 of the heads together he performed the ritual, with it he made 3 images of himself...Vroka Gulash, Thieven Shinylooker, and one elf who had no name, the one who was most closely related to Glorin himself. Not long after Glorin completed this ritual he was slain by Fractum Atrox with the aid of Cyric himself. Glorin was banished to the Abyss to be tortured for the rest of his life.

Now what would have happened recently if Dyso didnt die.....

With Glorin being in the Abyss the Faces he made of himself still remained. Vroka Gulash the Good Half-Orc Rogue,a reflection of Laz, was Slain by Bandits just oustide of Eleriina. Thieven Shinylooker, a neutral hearted thief, was beaten to death by a victim of his thievary. And the un-named one still lived, The un-named one remained a Masked Figure to all. He called himself Jon to some, but really had no name, This Face reflected off of Rellik's Evilness. He was an Arcane Archer Elf. Jon found refuge in The United Underground, a secret organization of Bandits and the like formed by an associate of the late Mr. Red Hashmeer's, William Jones. Among the Organization was the Last Remaining of The Lost Guard, Those who were still loyal and swore to keep the Legacy of Glorin the Wretched alive, those who would unleash Glorin of Many Faces as well as Glorin The Wretched upon Dysotopia. Inorder to bring Glorin of Many Faces back it was up to The Black Paladin. There was a ritual to strengthen Glorin to escape which involved sacrifices.
"The Blood of the Good, and the Blood of the Wretched, The Blood of those who claim the Throne, and the Blood of those who fight against it."
It was up to The Black Paladin and Xavier Dotson to complete the task. The First target was William Spears, he was wretched and attempting to claim a name for himself in place of Glorin. The Next target would inevitably be a High Member of the OSB, those of good heart, and fight against the wretched throne. Once this ritual was complete Glorin of Many Faces would be brought back from the Abyss and with the power given to his blood from the ritual he would finally be able to release the soul of Glorin The Wretched into himself and become him.

But then Dyso was taken down so we only got to set up the killing of Spears....

You know it would have been fitting and nice to see Glorin The Wretched come back to destroy Dysotopia. Laying waste to the lands one more time.


Now that would have been a good way to die.........
