Individuals





Acererak (R.I.P.)
first appearance:              Adventurers #172
final appearance:              Adventurers #172
Acererak was a millennia-old demilich, whose tomb the Adventurers explored during episodes #166-172. The creature finally came to life when the party invaded its final resting place and irritated its gemmed skull. After a pitched battle in which Acererak nearly devoured Mongo's soul, its final form was destroyed by Peldor and Ged.
Acererak's stats can be found in the TSR module S1, Tomb of Horrors.


Al-arakara
first mentioned:              Adventurers #812
chosen as the first target:   Adventurers #822
first heard:                  Adventurers #824
first appears and fought:     Adventurers #825
re-appears in Underdark:      Adventurers #875
Al-arakara was a mummy king who was Xusia's fourth-in-command and a hated rival of Drusilla. He ruled a vast underground city hidden beneath the Sea of Dust. Seven feet tall and powerfully-built, he wore a gray robe, had glowing red eyes, and emanated great magic and evil. Unlike conventional mummies, Al-arakara didn't have rotting flesh and wasn't swathed in bandages; he had reconstructed a body of flesh and blood for himself a long time ago. Also unlike conventional mummies, he was intelligent and articulate, and preferred parley to pointless battle. He did, however, control countless mummies and perhaps other undead, and he possessed vast powers. His body was extraordinarily tough (said to be like dense wood when hit with a sword) and after being partially decapitated, he healed the wound with a mere thought.

Al-arakara had spent many lifetimes hiding beneath the desert, gathering knowledge and power; he claimed to be at least twelve centuries old, and the most powerful of his kind on all of Oerth. He also spoke of Xusia as an ally rather than a master, and seemed to feel a great responsibility to his subjects in the underground city. Confident yet logical, Al-arakara was a natural leader and a dangerous adversary, and one who couldn't be trusted. His first meeting with Belphanior ended in a draw, as both sides betrayed each other. His second meeting with Belphanior was accidental, as the elf's group arrived at a battle in progress between the mummy-king's forces and some Drow in the Underdark. This encounter also ended in a draw, as the foe fled while leaving behind an expanding mass of deadly acid, prompting Belphanior to retreat as well.


Albert (of the Sinking Plain) (R.I.P.)
first appearance:              Adventurers #091
Baron Albert of Blackmoor is a particularly unpleasant individual whom the Adventurers encountered shortly after escaping the Underdark. Initially appearing as a generous host, he turned out to be more evil than the party could have possibly imagined. They were lucky to get away from his manor with their lives and sanity. Though his home was ablaze as the party fled, Albert survived; he was finally sought out and slain (along with his various servants and minions) by Belphanior in episodes 624-5. It was later learned that Baron Albert was a thrall of the arch-lich Xusia.

melted by black dragon breath:      Adventurers #809
Created by the mad elf Belphanior, Angus has all the powers and properties of a normal iron golem. In addition, he has been programmed to obey only Belphanior or his henchman, Otto. Angus can usually be found in the hidden mountain town of Helgate, though Belphanior occasionally brings the golem along on certain adventures. After one of these adventures, Angus was finally laid low by the foul breath of a black dragon, the powerful acid melting him into a shapeless, twisted lump.


Ansalon
first appearance:              Adventurers #183
Ansalon is a human priest of Boccob, one of two such priests whom Ged employs in his temple. Ansalon is a NG 9th level priest, and he fights (when necessary) with a footman's flail +2.
As of Ged's death, Ansalon has risen to a new level of power and responsibility.

Aranor (R.I.P.)
first mentioned:               Adventurers #044
Aranor was an ancient dwarven eccentric who lived and adventured in the Ulek area. Although he has been dead for centuries, this didn't stop the party from exploring his odd dungeons.


Araxi Argenti
first appearance:              Adventurers #559
Araxi is a silver dragon who resides somewhere high atop the same mountain in the Corusk range where Rillen and Songa chanced to make their home.

final appearance:              Adventurers #371

Bargos the Red (R.I.P.)
first appearance:              Adventurers #946
Bargos was the leader of a band of mercenaries headed to Perrenland. He knew Razor Charlie from times past, and harbored a serious grudge — enough to cause him to capture, beat, and rob the knife-throwing warrior. Fortunately for Charlie (and unfortunately for Bargos) a group consisting of Otto, Mongo, and Elgon came looking for their friend. Once freed, Charlie fought and bested Bargos before kicking him into a campfire and then slicing off his head with a sword.

first named:                   Lost Tales  #11

final appearance:              Lost Tales  #16
Belgar was the "guide" who accompanied the party into an abandoned dwarven mine, many years ago. Possessed by greed, he turned traitor and collapsed the mineshaft on them, burying them alive. Belgar remained at large for a long time before Belphanior happened to find him in Badwall. Not one to let a bad deed go unpunished, Belphanior tossed Belgar into an abandoned mineshaft and collapsed it on him. Belphanior was kind enough to leave the man some company though: a nest of carrion crawlers.

subsequent appearance:         Lost Tales  #05
Blok was an earth elemental that, for some reason, served Peyote. It first appeared when the latter rejoined the main party, to hunt for the magical Runes, and remained with them until Peyote left with Halbarad.

Bosco had an unfortunate run of bad luck right from the get-go, culminating in his soul spending several years as a prisoner in the Elemental Plane of Water. After his soul was rescued and at long last reunited with his body, Bosco began the process of implementing all the mischief he had dreamt of while incarcerated.


Bruce
first appearance:              Adventurers #101
subsequent appearance:         Adventurers #225
most recent appearance:        Adventurers #599

first appearance:              Lost Tales  #09
Sir Canady was a rich but skinny, clumsy, meek, dull, weak, insipid, stupid, easily-dominated little worm from Homburg. At least, that's what a young and fiery Victoria thought of her would-be suitor. He's almost certainly passed on by now, as humans rarely live to be 400.

first appearance:              Adventurers #191
Carrick was the mayor of Spek, a town where the party tried to buy some equipment for eleven hundred newly-freed slaves. He was only noteworthy because he stood up to the party, in defense of his town, and persuaded them to leave peacefully. If he's not still the mayor, the town should have given him a fat pension and a hell of a retirement home — he earned it.

first appearance:              Adventurers #001
final appearance:              Adventurers #001

Confernicus
first appearance:              Lost Tales  #14
Confernicus is one of three Archdruids in Obad-hai's service and Peyote's direct boss. He presided over the ritual contest between Peyote and Daffodil that saw Peyote rise to the rank of Druid, and also presided over Peyote's title defense against the rogue druid Tolvek, in episode 608.. He remains quite spry for his 100+ years.


Cornelius
first appearance:              Adventurers #511
Cornelius is a crusty old sea dog, and the captain of one of the many vessels that sail the Nyr Dyv. He had quite a thrill in 511-512 when, while transporting Mongo, Rillen, et al. across the lake, a giant squid attacked.


Corvis
first appearance:              Adventurers #526

captured:                             Adventurers #910
finally executed by Belphanior:       Adventurers #911
The current ruler of the Hold of the Sea Princes, he appeared to have risen to power primarily by murdering his older and much more noble brother Jeon II in the past. Creon connected all of Belphanior's past deeds to his current ones, and determined that the elf had to be publicly executed — but first publicly tried, to show the citizens that their rulers were competent. The Prince's staged event went horribly wrong for him, and he barely escaped with his life. Some time later, a vengeful Belphanior returned to Monmurg, basically destroyed the city in a well-planned and merciless attack, and captured Creon, later killing him in a private room with no one else present. Though only a handful of people are aware of it, a clone of Creon, controlled by benevolent parties, was put in place to rule the Hold of the Sea Princes. The eventual outcome of all this has yet to be determined.

apparently perished:           Adventurers #500
Cynder is a great, wicked red dragon first encountered by the party at the end of Aranor's dungeons, many years ago. Wished away inadvertently by Belphanior, the evil wyrm turned up again within the Griff Mountains, lording it over a pack of jermaline. After accidentally recharging Ged's fire wand, Cynder played a foul trick on the party.
Posing as the human called Ashe, Cynder was discovered on the Isle of the Ape when the party inadvertently freed him from an extradimensional prison. He accompanied them to the Abyss and proved incredibly useful. Cynder was apparently slain in battle with Orcus himself.


Daffodil
first appearance:              Lost Tales  #14
Daffodil is a druid in Obad-Hai's service and one of Peyote's direct assistants within the Vesve Forest. Peyote defeated her in ritual combat to earn the full rank of Druid. It was only afterwards that Peyote would learn that Daffodil is also the daughter of the Great Druid Oakly Greenleaf. Since they began working together, Daffodil and Peyote have become friends and lovers, though if they have taken any marriage vows it was certainly in the seclusion of the forest.

first appearance:              Adventurers #278
final appearance:              Adventurers #280

first appearance:              Adventurers #247
buried in the sewer cave-in:   Adventurers #385
dead body appearance:          Adventurers #396
reappeared, alive and well:    Adventurers #436
A strange dwarf encountered by Peldor and Bosco in the sewers of Greyhawk, Darek claimed to be a sewerworker, but Peldor had his doubts. The party again encountered Darek in the sewers when they sought to destroy the shapeshifter menace. Darek was killed in a disastrous explosion and cave-in during that adventure. His mangled body was left with the svirfneblin below the city of Greyhawk. They were attempting to bring him back to life, but were unable to do so while Mongo was there.
Months later, however, Darek appeared, alive but without memory of how he came to be so. Mongo knows the truth, though: the svirfneblin restored Darek Halfplow to life without his knowledge.
More details about Darek can be found in the City of Greyhawk boxed set.


Deborah
first appearance:              Adventurers #341

Drusilla was hidden in a buried temple within the wild Pelisso Swamp, but the residual magic of the teleportation gateway there was tracked by the archmage Pallin, leading Belphanior to the Pelisso and a series of battles with undead and then Drusilla herself.
Thanks to some threats and a singularly powerful spell ("The Hands of Fate") from the priestess Jenna, Belphanior was able to interrogate the defeated vampiress and learn a great number of the secrets of Xusia, as well as access the treasure within the temple. Due to circumstances and clever planning, Belphanior made sure that only he and his trusted group learned these secrets, assuring that he would control the flow of information to other interested parties.
As for Drusilla, she was rendered amnesiac by the magic used to question her, and for everyone's safety, she was imprisoned in Belphanior's iron flask.

Once a normal dwarf who was twisted by Malgorth the Wicked, the Iron Dwarf is now as impervious to the effects of time as he is to the blows that fall upon his armored form.
He first appeared with Zara as she tried to take her revenge on the party. Though buried in rock, the Iron Dwarf yet lived. He either unearthed himself, or was unearthed by Necros' minions as part of his foul plot to destroy the Adventurers. In any case, he was apparently bound to obey the bearer of a certain talisman possessed by Necros and friends. During the final battle against the evil priest, an island fortress collapsed on top of the Iron Dwarf. Even that was not enough to contain the fury that is the Iron Dwarf.

Kheldar was an arrogant, grey-clad human assassin working for Necros during the time of the Adventurers capture. His motives were purely professional: he worked for a fee, not for vengeance.

first appearance:              Adventurers #109

The Lord of Illusions (who also goes by the name Tonberry) is a three-foot tall, green-skinned being with large yellow pupil-less eyes.

He/it was able to teleport Alindyar and Lyra back to Greyhawk with barely a thought.

Kronos
first appearance:              Adventurers #274
subsequent appearance:         Adventurers #951-#968
Kronos first turned up in recorded history almost two thousand years ago. A powerful wizard of Flan or Oeridian descent — accounts vary — he seemed to be a benevolent sort, and is accomplishments included unmasking the Hooded Ones and driving back the Faceless Horde. Kronos' interest lay with the very nature of time itself, and he became a master of both its lore and associated magicks. He eventually became a lich, but not by the normal methods, and his exact nature and powers were different than other such beings. Following that transformation, Kronos was loosely associated with other deeds, such as the battle with the vampire king Von Kuryen and the creation of the fabled City in the Clouds. Not much is certain, other than that he took a passive role in world events for a long while. Kronos' last great historical footnote was his epic battle with the mummy king Al-Arakara, beneath the Sea of Dust, six hundred years ago. Kronos lost that battle and managed to flee magically, retreating to a secret place to rest. That rest lasted six centuries, and took place in a small, hidden tomb beneath the Cairn Hills.

While searching for lost treasure in episode 273, Belphanior and Otto found their way into that tomb. They did battle with some guardians and then a band of do-gooders led by Torin the Crusader. Near the end of the latter fight, a mummified body — supposedly Kronos — came back to life right before Belphanior sealed the cairn, trapping Torin's first company along with a plethora of angry undead. Torin fled, his band was slaughtered, and Kronos quietly made his way to (or perhaps made) a lair deep within the Corusk Mountains. There he remained until located by Belphanior and company in episodes 959-960. A temporary alliance was formed, with the purpose of destroying the mummy king Al-Arakara. This business was concluded in episode 968; unbeknownst to Belphanior, after he left, Parekh had a brief conversation with Kronos. She had alerted the lich to the approach of Belphanior days before, and had also invited him to join her secret cabal of wizards. At this time, Kronos' answer remains unknown.

Kronos is a human figure of average height and build, with chalk-white skin. His head is bald and his eyes are blood-red. He favors a hooded grey robe. Though technically a lich — he is undead and does have a soul — Kronos uses his powers to prevent his physical body from decaying, an effort which is apparently constant, and made easier in cold climates. A reclusive individual who prefers the company of silent undead to that of living beings, he possesses immense magical powers, surely at the 18th level of spell casting ability if not higher.

first appearance:              Adventurers #001

final appearance:              Adventurers #225

final appearance:              Adventurers #325
Kynn was a slender elven sorceress clad in blue robes, who for a time was allied with Necros. It was she who used Tanya as the bait to capture Peldor and coincidentally Belphanior. This task was made considerably easier because she held an iron talisman which gave her command over the Iron Dwarf's endless fury. She was one of the many slavers in Westkeep whose livelihood was ruined by Belphanior's scheme to free the slaves of that city. During the battle on Necros' isle, Belphanior slew the witch with his evil eye.

Lyra is a female drow wizard, and was originally a member of a drow raiding party that attacked the Adventurers several years ago. She was captured by the party and soon converted from her previous errant ways by Alindyar, who thereafter became her mate. She quickly became a useful and trusted member of the party. Lyra comes from the drow city of Rilauven.


Malgorth the Wicked (RIP?)
first appearance:              Lost Tales  #24
Malgorth was as powerful as he was insane, but none of his foul deeds compare to the creation of the most twisted and fearsome weapon the world has known. Malgorth made the Iron Dwarf. Through hellish torture and godlike sorcery, the mad wizard created and controlled the ultimate slayer.
Malgorth is presumed dead, for his talisman to control the fury of the Iron Dwarf fell into other hands, and it seems unlikely that could happen while the wizard still drew breath. But for one of Malgorth's power, many things are possible.

This was the place where a party of adventurers (consisting of Durg the dwarf, Sardeep the wizard, Bartoz the priest, Hilda the amazon, Serge the halfling thief, plus the slain Weebo the half-elven priest/wizard and Crestus the paladin) ran into trouble and invoked a powerful summoning spell. This resulted in a confused and unarmed Peldor being whisked from his bed half a world away and plopped into the dungeon. Fortunately, he was still sharp and was able to lead the adventurers out of the dungeon.

first appearance:              Adventurers #311
final appearance:              Adventurers #325
Necros was an evil priest of great power. Indeed, probably one of the most powerful priests on Oerth because he served Orcus directly. A shrivelled figure clad in the blackest of garments with only dark hollows for eyes, Necros spent years gathering the power to destroy those who slew one of the Balors, Elik. His many allies included Kheldar, Kynn Trylannan, Potas Potay, Pumpledorf, Szen Szing and the ever-dangerous Iron Dwarf. Necros was slain by the combined magicks of the drow and Drawmij.

Nerg was the leader of the red-armband gang which menaced Helgate for a brief time.

N'Gasai was a type VI demon (known in some circles as a Balor) who had been exiled to the Prime Material plane several hundred years ago. He settled in the lowest reaches of the stone tower that would later come to be known as Greyspire, and slumbered, slowly regaining his power and summoning lesser demons to his side. This slumber was interrupted by an exploratory party from Lord Marcus' army in the upper regions of Greyspire, with disastrous results: N'Gasai and his demon hordes overran the fortress and killed almost every single inhabitant. The demon lordling was finally slain after a protracted battle, his soul returning to the Abyss where it would then be powerless and tortured by other demons for a century.

first mentioned:               Adventurers #186
Along with Ranulf, Nobb was one of two primary slave merchants in the city of Westkeep, in the hold of the Sea Princes. It is unknown how his business fared after the Adventurers' trip through that area. In episode 606, Belphanior mentioned these two as loose ends that needed to be eliminated.

Slain or not, he reappeared in Rillen's third fighting tournament where he was bested by the hefty Yee. This has led some to suggest the beast has troll blood in him.


Oakly Greenleaf
first appearance:              Adventurers #440
A large, bearded wildman, Oakly is the Great Druid of Obad-Hai, making his home in the depths of the Vesve Forest. It was he who sent Peyote and the others to find out what was happening in the ancient crypt. He is also Daffodil's father.

Pallin has employed a spell that allowed almost a score of people to fly as one group, as well as a spell that forced a narrow tunnel through another wizard's protective barrier.

He most likely remains at large, and his mad desire for Victoria could pose a future threat.

Most recently, he unwisely pursued Belphanior into one of Greyhawk's dark alleys, the Captain-General was "persuaded" not to seek any further retribution for the elf's crimes in exchange for his life.

As a priestess of Kurell, she sought to convert the Guild members over to her goddess.
When Corvis (Peldor) successfully infiltrated her organization and brought her thefts to light, Sharyn was stripped of her rank and jailed in the Citadel. Peldor later sought her out to seek perhaps a truce, but she had gone quite insane and attacked him. In the brief struggle, she was killed.

discusses powers and abilities:    Adventurers #419
rescued by Belphanior from Qurac:  Adventurers #450
acquires the ring of recall:       Adventurers #589
Victoria is a woman shrouded in mystery. When she came to the town of Helgate, Belphanior was immediately attracted to her. She moved with a grace and power that hinted at a royal lineage, but she would reveal next to nothing about herself...until, that is, she flew into a rage amidst the battle with the Company of Nine. That night, she reverted to her true form: a fearsome and deadly vampiress. While this would have terrified most suitors, Belphanior was more intrigued than afraid. More than 350 years old, the sultry lady came from a noble Nyrondese family of mixed Oeridian blood with Sueloise ancestors.
Victoria seems to genuinely like Belphanior, and she now stays in Helgate with him. Whether her particular condition will cause any problems in the future remains uncertain.
Besides being a beautiful, seductive vampiress, Victoria is also an accomplished swordswoman with one hell of a mean streak. She admitted to murdering the whore Candice for being in league with Nerg and his red-armband gang.
Since acquiring Omak's ring of recall, Victoria now ventures farther from the safety of Belphanior's dark castle, secure in the knowledge that she can escape nearly any situation that might destroy her vampiric form.

Xusia is an archlich and Orcus' prime agent on Oerth. Millenia old and supremely powerful, he had lain trapped for centuries until Ged's exploration of the Suel city accidently set him free once more. He was called upon by Orcus to recruit Belphanior, but nearly died in the ensuing battle when his ruby scepter was destroyed. He escaped a final rest when Belphanior and company were whisked away by an unknown power who stepped in to prevent Orcus' further interference on the Prime Material plane. A revenge-bound Belphanior tracked the lich down again, this time in the caverns below Castle Mukos where Xusia was building a new Necropolis. Despite Belphanior's best efforts, the archlich vanished without a trace. Xusia later regrouped and built a new base of power, the Fortress of the Nine. This mighty redoubt of evil was assaulted on multiple fronts in episodes 763-786, and Xusia was finally slain by Belphanior in episode 783.

In the conflict that followed, Zara escaped, but she soon returned to try to kill Halbarad. Unable to do so, she escaped again. Her desire for revenge not yet satisfied, she began assembling a group of powerful bounty hunters, including the fearsome Iron Dwarf. During the ambush she managed to stone Alindyar and slay Belphanior, but was apparently slain by Peldor and Mongo. However, Zara's cunning and magical power were such that she had contingencies against such a simple death. She returned to take revenge on the drow, destroying their extra-dimensional home, kidnapping Lyra, and nearly slaying Alindyar. With the help of Bigby and Rary, Alindyar rescued his mate, and the two slew Zara once and for all, taking care that no magic would save her again.

Blackrazor's stats can be found in the TSR module S2, White Plume Mountain.
The sword seems to favor its current master, to the point of becoming unwieldy when used by another (see episode #833).


Boccob
first mentioned:               Adventurers #001
also mentioned:                just about anytime Ged speaks
avatar appeared:               Adventurers #195
avatar appeared again:         Adventurers #297
Boccob is the greater diety of magic on Oerth, and indirectly present due to constant invocation by Ged. His avatar actually appeared to Ged in a dream, two other times. The avatar made a third appearance to send Ged on a quest to Maure Castle.
Boccob's various stats can be found in both books of the World of Greyhawk boxed set.


Chaosbane
first appearance:              Adventurers #362
Chaosbane is a sentient bastard sword dedicated to the destruction of all things evil. "I speak, and act, when necessary to vanquish vile miscreants and avenge foul misdeeds." It is currently wielded by __REFER(Sir Drexel).


Clangeddin Silverbeard
mentioned often in:            Adventurers #257-#267
Clangeddin is a great dwarven god, the "Father of Battle"; most dwarven warriors call him their patron.
Clangeddin's stats can be found in the out-of-print TSR hardcover "Dieties and Demigods" and probably in whichever more recent TSR product that deals with dwarven gods and goddesses.


Demogorgon
first appearance:              Adventurers #750
Demogorgon is one of the mightiest demon princes in the Abyss, and an arch-rival of Orcus. He has meddled in Belphanior's life more than once, always with the same goal: to ultimately weaken Orcus' works on Oerth.


Ehlonna
first mentioned:               Adventurers #437
Ehlonna is a goddess of nature and maintains her own druidic order separate from that of Obad-Hai. Her name is frequently invoked by Deryck.


Elik (a.k.a. the Balor)
first appearance:                                Adventurers #119
slain on the Prime Material Plane for 99 years:  Adventurers #119
reappeared as Erak:                              Adventurers #498
permanently slain by Belphanior:                 Adventurers #500
A type VI demon that decimated the party beneath the Sea of Dust, Elik was finally slain by Peldor. One of six Balors in existence, this demon's eye evolved into a minor artifact in its own right; see also the Eye of Elik.
Elik reappeared to menace the party after they had survived the Isle of the Ape; in the guise of a paladin known as Erak, he was soundly thrashed by Belphanior. In defeat, though, he triumphed, for his dispelling opened a portal to the Abyss which sucked the party through.
Elik appeared very soon after, in the climatic battle against Orcus, and died the True Death when Belphanior decapitated him with Blackrazor (and a lot of help from the wispy thing) — since the killing occurred in the Abyss, he is permanently dead (of course, some lucky type V demon will have gotten mutated/upgraded at that moment).


Eye of Elik (R.I.P.)
first appearance:              Adventurers #119
taken by Belphanior:           Adventurers #119
possessed Belphanior:          Adventurers #343
final appearance:              Adventurers #349
The Eye of Elik was all that remained of the Balor Elik slain by the Adventurers. The Eye was an insidious evil, slowly but surely corrupting those who would dare use its dread powers. The mad elf Belphanior was one of such daring, and he gouged out his own left eye to possess the thing. Their unholy union became the death of many foes great and small. The Eye's eerie crimson glow only hinted at the demonic powers it possessed, the most dread of which was the ability to completely dissolve a living creature's bones. The thing was finally destroyed by Belphanior and the dark sword Blackrazor.


Fharlanghn
first mentioned:               Adventurers #362
Fharlanghn is the god on the far horizon. A favorite diety of adventurers everywhere, his name may be invoked whenever someone sets out on a great journey.


Hadeus
first appearance:              Adventurers #075
Hadeus is the duke summoned by the ancient devil cult while the Adventurers were demolishing their fortress. During the ensuing battle, Hadeus fought with great fury, even ripping Peldor in half at one point. However, he was slain by Belphanior, who wielded the magical blade Blackrazor. After his form on this plane was destroyed, Hadeus was bound to his home plane for a period of 99 years.


Heironeous
first mentioned:               Adventurers #192
Heironeous is the patron of all things chivalrous including justice, honor, and valor. However, priests and paladins in his service tend to be insufferably dedicated.

the Invulnerable Coat of Arnd
first mentioned:               Adventurers #257
first appearance:              Adventurers #261
claimed by Mongo:              Adventurers #263
The Invulnerable Coat of Arnd is a shimmering coat of the finest chain mail. It is aptly named, for the legendary armor is itself truly indestructible, and its wearer is protected from both physical and magical attacks. The Coat is said to have some undesirable properties, but these pale in comparison to its value as the greatest of all armors.
Once the property of the great red dragon Feuerhauch, for a time the Coat came into the hands of the orc king Grimthaard. It now belongs to Mongo Thunderhead.


Lightbringer (destroyed)
first appearance:              Adventurers #075
first spoke:                   Adventurers #092
destroyed:                     Adventurers #500
Lightbringer was an intelligent, very powerful holy morning-star. Its special purpose was to slay undead, a purpose which it performed very well. Possessed of mighty powers, it became Ged's weapon of choice. The morningstar was destroyed by Orcus while Ged was trying to escape the Abyss with his companions.


Moradin
first mentioned:               Adventurers #257
Moradin is a major dwarven god, a.k.a. the "Soul Forger". His name was often invoked by Yod Ironbeard while Mongo et al. were in Thunderdelve.


Nightfang (destroyed)
first appearance:              Adventurers #089
shattered:                     Adventurers #400
Nightfang was a powerfully enchanted longsword found by the rogue Peldor in an anti-magic zone within a deep cavern. While not truly sentient, the sword would only function in the hands of a thief. A marvellous offensive weapon, Nightfang had the incredibly useful property of teleporting its wielder to safety the instant before a mortal blow could strike. This power saved Peldor on several occassions. Nightfang shattered when struck by Mongo's adamantine longsword, during Peldor's final battle with the leader of the shapeshifters.


Obad-Hai
first mentioned:               Adventurers #008
Obad-Hai rules over the wild lands and forests of the world. His freedom- seeking followers enjoy life far from so-called 'civilization'. The often strange half-elf Peyote has managed to rise to the full rank of Druid in Obad-Hai's service.

Orcus
first appearance:              Adventurers #119
subsequent appearance:         Adventurers #349
most recent appearance:        Adventurers #525
A grossly fat demon lord, Orcus first learned of the Adventurers when one of his Balors, Elik, was slain by Peldor. Subsequently, he has taken an interest in the group in general and the increasingly evil Belphanior in particular. This culminated in the great battle in the Abyss, during which the demon prince both bargained with the party and slew one of its number.
Orcus' interest in Belphanior was not diminished. Through his prime agent on Oerth, Xusia, Orcus tried to convince the mad elf to join the demon lord's forces. When Orcus decided to directly interfere in the affairs of the mortal world, other powers intervened. Orcus tried to convince the mad elf to join the demon lord's forces. When Orcus decided to directly interfere in the affairs of the mortal world, other powers intervened. After that, Orcus was not heard from in quite some time, but Xusia still continued to build a power base. It is noteworthy that (in episode 751) Orcus' rival demonlord Demogorgon set events in motion to weaken Orcus' agent's efforts on Oerth.


Pelor
first mentioned:               Adventurers #176
Pelor is the greater god of the sun, strength, light and, most importantly to the Adventurers, healing. His high priestess in Greyhawk, Derider Fanshaen, has become a close acquaintance of several of the Adventurers, including the late Ged.

first appearance:              Adventurers #150
subsequent appearance:         Adventurers #568
Silthis is a kraken residing on the Elemental Plane of Water, where it reigns as a prince. The party had to deal with it to reclaim Bosco's soul. Peldor actually cheated the great kraken, painting copper coins to look like gold.
Silthis came to claim his past due when Bosco was being carried to Tusmit for "crimes" he committed while possessed. Though it cost Peldor a great deal of wealth, both magical and monetary, the abduction by Silthis in effect saved Bosco from his near-certain death in Tusmit.


Spellbreaker
first appearance:              Adventurers #362
Spellbreaker is a sword which can deflect magic. It is currently wielded by Tarl.


Stormcrest
first appearance:              Adventurers #130
first named by Tenser:         Adventurers #150
Stormcrest is an ancient dwarven warhammer forged of black metal and an extremely powerful artifact. It was claimed by Mongo after he slew his alter ego in the parallel universe. It replaced his old dwarven thrower which had been destroyed, and has been his preferred weapon ever since.

The Nine [disbanded]
The Nine were an alliance of evildoers formed by the lich Xusia. They operated out of a huge, remote fortress and were in the process of implementing various schemes, including a network of teleportation gateways that spanned the Flanaess. Their supposed goal was the gradual, covert invasion and domination of the continent, but Xusia had a secret plan to invade Oerth using demons and the gateways. All of these endeavors were halted when the Fortress of the Nine was invaded by multiple groups of powerful foes beginning in episode 761. The members were:
Xusia (R.I.P.) Suel Lich, thousands of years old Had schemes within schemes and secrets within secrets. After multiple confrontations with Belphanior and others, the ancient lich was finally destroyed by Belphanior and Rob in the great battle of the fortress.
General Kael (R.I.P.) Towering warrior-general who wore a skull-helm After besting everyone who tried to take him out — including Lord Marcus, Gorin, and Kup Swiftfoot — Kael was finally slain by a sphere of annihilation from the wizard Dexitheseus.
Selene (R.I.P.) Treacherous dark elven priestess Commanded a force of drow...which was buried in an avalanche of steaming mud during the invasion of the fortress. Fate unknown, presumed dead.
Bodok (R.I.P.) Gigantic elder beholder possessed of monstrous cruelty After being inflicted with insanity during the battle at the fortress, it was slain by Halbarad.
Fenris Master thief Fled when the battle turned against the Nine. Current whereabouts unknown.
Ulrich (R.I.P.) Anti-paladin who rode a red dragon Slain by Otto.
Gog (R.I.P.) Fire giant king with many magical items Slain by Yod Ironbeard.
Cespedes Mysterious wizard with superior command of elements and constructs Fled during the invasion of the fortress.
Ythuus Alien ultradaemon from another plane Trapped on Oerth, it finally found a means of escape during the big battle, and departed the worldly realm.



The Vampire Hunters [disbanded]
This group of unusual individuals had united to track and slay vampires in certain remote areas of the Flanaess. Their mission led them to the remote mountain town of Helgate, where several perished in one way or another. Those who remained eventually formed an alliance with Belphanior and others, and accompanied him on future adventures. The members were:
Parekh 18th level wizard Slender brown-skinned woman of Flan descent. Gifted archmage, Circle of Eight caliber. Has come up with a large number of practical, original spells.
Drak 14th level warrior Hulking barbarian warrior who uses brains as well as brawn. Parekh's lover. Has an item which allows him to grow to twenty feet in height, gaining proportional mass and strength. Does battle with a gigantic mallet.
Boltar (R.I.P.) 15th level high priest of Pholtus Stocky, middle-aged, white hair. Very powerful, had ties to Furyondy. Wielded a morningstar of disruption which may have had other powers. Slain by beholders in the battle of the fortress.
Bram (R.I.P.) 13th level ranger Tall, lean, rugged, clad entirely in black including a wide-brimmed hat. Leader of the group. Bore an ebony cane with a silver tip, which had holy powers against undead, especially vampires. Most likely killed in battle of Helgate.
Ghuust (R.I.P.) 11th level necromancer Pale, thin fellow with short black hair. Wielded a life-draining scythe, had strange powers over undead. Killed by possessed Aja in battle of Helgate.
Dorval (R.I.P.) 6th level warrior Young but bold warrior, disciple of Marko. Killed by Victoria in unnamed mountain town near Helgate.
Marko (R.I.P.) 10th level warrior Burly, scarred veteran of many battles. Killed in battle of Helgate.



The Crimson Blades [active]
This group's membership consists of evil adventurers who are powerful to the point of being iconic. Little is known of their origins, but their goal is clear: total conquering dominance of all who stand in their way. They learned of Belphanior's quest for the mythical isle of Panagaea and followed the elf's group as it located and journeyed to that long-lost place. Though a couple of their number perished in battle, the Crimson Blades were a match for Belphanior and his allies; the battle ended in a draw after the four sleeping guardians awoke and began attacking both parties. The surviving Blades retreated by means unknown as the cavern collapsed, and they are presumably still active somewhere in the world. The members are:
Chargrim The Wizard Member of Rauxes' Guild of Magi. Lives and works in a citadel. Tends to work out problems like how to poison an entire sea at once.
Kalenon The Cleric Supreme High Priest of Hextor, oversees all of his god's doings in Aerdy and outlying areas. Demands unwavering loyalty to the deity, is a proponent of forceful conversion.
Lord Rammstein The Warrior Gigantic, violent warmonger who lives for battle. Wears jet-black plate mail with a great horned helmet. Follows Hextor, and leads a band of fanatical warriors.
Sydaar The Thief Rather than be a Guildmistress, she remains independent, as do most of her activities. Quick as a cat, deadly as a spider.
Yorgi (R.I.P.) The Halfling Nimble and greedy, as one would expect — but also thoroughly depraved and evil, to the point of bloodthirstiness. Slain while in gaseous form, as one of the guardians of Panagaea inhaled and destroyed him.
Orgthrok The Dwarf A hard-fighting, hard-drinking berserker. Wields an axe that drives him to chaos.
Snake The Assassin Master of shadows and death. Quite possibly the equal of Greyhawk's Whisper. May not be human.
Galil-Gildur The Elf Greater than a thousand years old, considers himself above everyone and everything. Only goes adventuring to relieve the boredom and gain useful items and magic. Dangerously contemplative and calculating.
Laryn The Bard A dark muse, she makes music that steals mens' souls and stops armies in their paths. Mysterious, brooding, haunted. Slain while the group was doing battle with lost tribes on the isle.
Krom The Hunter Big, hairy, and mean — a primal man. Prefers to be alone, prefers to be in the wild. Able to track and kill the most dangerous prey without weapons.
name unknown The Monk (was not present during Panagaea battle)
name unknown The Psionicist (was not present during Panagaea battle)



The Misadventurers [active]
This group was discovered by Deryck and hired to do certain jobs which the half-elf, being noble and good, could not do himself. The group also took on other jobs which even Deryck wouldn't condone. The most recent of these involved the battle at the Fortress of the Nine; the misadventurers had intended to sign up with the army forming there, but thanks to quick thinking by Peyton, they were able to come out on the side of the victors. The members are:
Peyton Farquhar 7th level gnome thief About 3' tall, middle-aged, with gray hair and goatee. Wears tattered clothes, though he could easily afford better, in an effort to make himself appear far more common than he actually is. A clever, calculating fellow, he has a gift for coming up with solutions to sudden situations, especially during battle. Fights with a shortsword and shortbow.
Sylus Blackheart 5/6th level drow fighter/thief Just over 5' tall, slender, very agile, very fast. Age, history, given drow name unknown. Quiet, calculating, sarcastic. Fights with longsword.
Adolphus Delphi 7th level half-ogre fighter Almost 8' tall, heavily muscled, stringy greasy brown hair, pallid skin. Butt-ugly, smells, makes crowds part when he approaches. Age unknown. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, tends to let Peyton make decisions for him. Fights with whatever he's carrying around at the time, most recently a big battleaxe.
Wembly 6th level human wizard Just over 6' tall, gangly, short brown hair. About 30 years old. Clumsy and timid, but wields powerful magic.
Rogar 7th level priest of Olidammara About 6'5" and stout, has thick, matted, wild dark brown hair and full beard. In his late 30s or early 40s. Drinks and carouses every day, as befits his religion; revels in battle as well. Fights with thick, gnarled war-club.
Damien renegade imp About 1' tall, red skin, jet-black hair, wings, tail, raises interesting questions from observers. Sarcastic, can also be quite mean. Has various powers including immunity to nonmagical weapons, poison tail-barb, ability to produce fire. Fights with his poisonous tail.



The Enemies of the Nine [disbanded (it was a one-time team-up)]
Though this group had no official title, they will go down in the history books as those who assembled to challenge (and ultimately defeat) the Nine in their own fortress. The (non-Adventurers) members of this group are listed below. Those individuals with other group affiliations are noted with a * symbol; those who are henchmen or associates are marked with a ** symbol. The members were:

the "other" adventurers [disbanded but in touch]
This group was very similar to the Adventurers, with members of a wide variety of occupations, races, and temperaments — but they did their adventuring about ten years earlier. Over the years and quests, various members of the two groups have worked together and become friends. The members are:
Dexitheseus bald, bearded human wizard  
Drexel (R.I.P.) 11th level human paladin of Heironeous has a twin brother, Sir Dremel, who is trying to resurrect him

Sparkey
halfling warrior twin brother of Spikey, loyal henchman of Yod



The Cabal [active]
This is a recently-formed, ultra-secretive cabal of powerful wizards. Their existence has been revealed in small increments, specifically in episodes 802 and 881. They seem to be on the side of Good, but their exact intentions and capabilities remain largely unknown. The members are:
Parekh 18th level female human wizard Formerly affiliated with vampire hunters until their destruction/disbanding, frequent ally of Belphanior. Slender brown-skinned woman of Flan descent. Gifted archmage, Circle of Eight caliber. Has a home in some unknown, peaceful, magical place. Has come up with a large number of practical, original spells (see her entry under "Vampire Hunters") and this is her specialty: inventing new spells.
Pallin 18th level grey elven wizard Longtime acquaintance of Parekh. Follows the ways of Celestian. Specializes in teleportation/planar magic.
Dexitheseus 17th level human wizard Formerly affiliated with the "other" adventurers until their disbanding/retirement. About sixty years old, bald, bearded, uses a variety of types of magic rather than becoming master in any single one.
Wu 18th level human wizard Formerly affiliated with the Host of Greyspire until its destruction. Wizened old man of Baklunish heritage, likes to babble incoherently. Specializes in living transmutation magic such as polymorphing and shapechanging.
Cespedes 19th level human wizard Formerly affiliated with the Nine until their destruction/disbanding. Tall and thin, has gray goatee, is bald with black metal skullcap. Has begun to cease caring about things that normal people care about. Specializes in elemental magic as well as nonliving transmutation magic. He built the adamantine golem, Talos.



Personages of Monmurg
In addition to Prince Creon, the following individuals were present in Monmurg, capital of the Hold of the Sea Princes, at the time of Belphanior's all-out attack on the city:
Publius Gallus (R.I.P.) First appeared in episode 904. The richest and most powerful of Monmurg's 11-member slavers' council which met once a week, Publius and the other councilmen were all killed by Belphanior in the early phase of his attack on the city. For good measure, he then destroyed the building in which their meetings were held.
Tergard (R.I.P.) Mentioned in episode 904. The 10th most powerful of the slaver council, this man's identity was adopted by Belphanior in disguise as he infiltrated a council meeting.
High Wizard Kordaak (R.I.P.) First mentioned in episode 904. The recently-appointed head mage of Monmurg and head of the Guild of Wizardry after the death of his predecessor Beekus, Kordaak was assassinated by Whisper, who Belphanior had hired for this task.
Royal Advisor Spiros (R.I.P.) First appeared in episode 909. He was killed by Razor Charlie in episode 910.
General Malthus (R.I.P.) First appeared in episode 909. He was killed by Otto in episode 910.
Court Wizard Nurka (R.I.P.) First appeared in episode 909. He was killed by Razor Charlie in episode 910.
Lumis (R.I.P.) First appeared in episode 909. He was a mysterious sorceror who lived in Monmurg's vault for decades and summoned (and was somehow tied to) the Guardian. He was killed by Razor Charlie in episode 910.
The Guardian First appeared in episode 910. A whispered legend in the region this mythical beast was said to guard the treasures of Monmurg from all enemies, and was rumored to be a monster so fearsome that no one had ever survived its wrath. It turned out to be thirty feet tall, have three different monster heads, and be utterly resistant to magic. It vanished upon the demise of Lumis the sorceror.




The Unnamed





the doppleganger (R.I.P.)
A doppleganger that appeared in episodes #017-#018, disguised as a young woman. Screamed a lot. Slain by Rob after it attacked him and tried to assume his form.


evil mage in keep (R.I.P.)
Kidnapped Princess Tasmela; slain by the party in episode #042.


anonymous green dragon #1 (R.I.P.)
Cohort/slave of evil mage in keep; slain by Mongo, Peldor, and Ged in episode #042. This was a small, relatively puny dragon.


the bronze dragons
Five in number, and led by Garzithraxonitus, they appeared in Aranor's dungeons during episode #048.


anonymous green dragon #2 (R.I.P.)
Fought the party in episodes #067-#068. Killed Bosco. Slain at long last by Halbarad, using an arrow of dragon slaying.


the spectre beneath the sewers (R.I.P.)
This restless spirit lay deep beneath Greyhawk's sewers sealed in a vault. Belphanior chanced upon it while following a rather inaccurate map. This undead creature would not be worth mentioning if not for the sword that it carried with it: Blackrazor.


the ogre-things (R.I.P.)
A gruesome pair of malformed ogres once roamed Greyhawk's sewers, but they met up with Belphanior and his freshly acquired dark sword. They became the first of many souls to fall to the elf and his soul-sucking blade.


the cloud giant
Demanded toll from the party in episode #073; was forced to kill Belphanior in self-defense. Ended up helping the party find the devil cult fortress.


the Loc-Nar demon
Possessed Bosco's body in episodes #076-#077; it was finally exorcised by Rob.


anonymous green dragon #3
Swooped by, invisible, and took Rob, in episode #080. See Baytor.


the adamantine golem
Fought the party to a standstill in episode #085. Despite all attempts to beat it, it could not be defeated, and ended up driving the party away.


the vampire lord (R.I.P.)
He captured most of the party in episode #094, and held them until their rescue in episode #100. Eventually defeated by Ged and Lightbringer.
See also Igor.


the Grand Master (R.I.P.)
Rillen's old teacher, seen in episode #101 after the great tournament. He also appeared in flashbacks in episode #275. Slain behind the scenes sometime before that episode, he was buried by Rillen in his monastery.


the grey dragon
Never actually appeared, but was implied to exist during episode #117, while the party explored the ruins amidst the Sea of Dust. It appeared to have the power to negate magic, though this was never proven.


wispy thing
first appeared:                       Adventurers #118
re-appeared in Helgate                Adventurers #474
buried/vanished in Helgate demise     Adventurers #675
unearthed/found again                 Adventurers #801
This strange creature has followed Belphanior ever since the mad elf unintentionally released him from a strange metal box, in the Forgotten City deep under the Sea of Dust. Apparently unable to be harmed by conventional means, it has also exhibited the ability to plane travel and to unerringly locate the party. Probably sentient, the thing first "spoke" in episode #202. It vanished in episode #224 as Belphanior entered Lao Khan's anti-magic island.


the Balor (R.I.P.)
see Elik.


anonymous lich #1 (R.I.P.)
Found in Zagyg's dungeons in episode #123, it was slain by Ged and Lightbringer.


anonymous lich #2
Wanted the party to sign the logbook at the entrance to the deepest level of Zagyg's dungeon; should probably be considered benevolent, if not utterly senile.


the many-eyed sphere
Similar to a beholder but with fewer eyes, this strange creature was encountered by Alindyar and Lyra on the plane of Concordant Opposition. It was not agressive, and when attempts at communication failed, it simply went on its way.


the bird-man (men)
Clad in golden robes, this tall, slender creature had the body of a man, but the head of a bird. It communicated with Alindyar and Lyra telepathically and seemed to possess a great intellect. Although it offered the drow a chance to stay and learn a great many things, they declined and the bird-man sent them to a portal which led back to Oerth. Unfortunately the exit of the portal was near the drow city of Erelhei-Cinlu.


the evil priest of Hextor (R.I.P.)
This priest of Hextor was one of two allies of General Zog, in episodes #147-#148. Slain by Mongo.


the red-robed evil elf (R.I.P.)
The other of General Zog's allies, appeared in episodes #147-#148 but escaped; later found and slain by the party in episode #153.


the gynosphinxes
Assaulted the party with riddles in episode #152.


anonymous lich #3
Summoned by Belphanior's trumpet of doom, in episode #155; it was left behind as the party fled. Should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.


anonymous black dragon
Flew by the party in episode #156, and ended up damaging Ged's magical sky balloon before flying onward to its great migration.


the Angel
first appeared:                       Adventurers #899
freed from magical imprisonment:      Adventurers #927
This twelve-foot tall winged being had been imprisoned in a magical slumber by Xusia and stored in the gateway complex on the moon Luna. Discovered by Belphanior and his group, the angel was eventually freed. A being of tremendous power, he was able to read minds and know alignments with ease, and it suggested that Belphanior and friends attacking him would be a most foolish and pointless idea. After some choice comments (such as the fact that Luna was a dead moon, "unlike Celene") the angel vanished, bound for an even higher place than the moon Luna.


the wretch (R.I.P.)
An anonymous jermaline, appeared in episodes #162-#163 as it tried (and failed) to intimidate the party. Burned to ashes by Cynder in episode #163.


the dopplegangers (R.I.P.)
A band of three, they were slain by Gorin and Bosco in episode #176. They were probably part of a larger gang...


the half-orc warrior (R.I.P.)
A huge half-orc who fought for Huey, Dewey, and Louie in episode #190. He was slain messily as Peldor used his ring of telekinesis to lift him into the air and then drop him.


the demon in the City of the Gods (R.I.P.)
A skinny red thing who held the Time Rune (also called the Star Rune) the Adventurers were searching for in episode #199. He was slain by a golden arrow fired by Rillen. As he fell, the Time Rune hit an energy field and thus the Earth adventure began.


the mob assassin (R.I.P.)
Apparently hired to kill the party during their stay on Earth, he was killed by Belphanior in episode #204 while the others were away.


the wizened old man (men)
Within the temple of K'ai-L'un Hing, he/they oversaw Rillen's tests in episode #223, and eventually gave Rillen his new quarterstaff.


the dark figure
Roaming the huge expanse of the Burneal Forest, to the far northwest, he covertly aided Rillen and Belphanior as they rode parallel to the woodland's southern edge. Quite skilled with the great bow, he was too old to be Halbarad.


the warrior with the pointy hat (R.I.P.)
One of Lao Khan's bodyguards in episode #225, he used lightning fields to blast his foes. Slain by Belphanior using the evil eye.


the Suel Lich
Unearthed by Ged and Mongo's explorations of the Sueloise city, in episode #235, it fought the party to a standstill before (apparently) being slain by a lucky sword-blow from Bosco. However, Suel liches don't perish that easily. It was learned much later, by Peyote of all people, that the Suel lich was in fact Xusia.


Tarrasque the great beast from beyond the stars
Fell to Oerth in episode #250, and was fought for hours and miles by the party and others. It came within a hairsbreadth of ravaging the city of Greyhawk; but was transported to the drow city of Erelhei-Cinlu through the combined efforts of Bigby, Ged, Lyra, and Bosco.


strange hunter-creature (R.I.P.)
Unusual being that stalked the Burneal Forest during episode #252, hunting men. Slain by Halbarad after a prolonged chase and battle.


the earth elemental king
A tremendously powerful elemental, he is linked to the Axe of the Dwarvish Lords, wielded by Yod Ironbeard. The elemental king was a great help both during the war in Thunderdelve, beginning in episode #261, and during the rescue from Necros' island in episode #325.


the fire elemental king
Another tremendously powerful elemental, summoned using Rillen's blue crystal pyramid, in episode #283. It killed all of the mysterious black- garbed warriors atop Dark Mountain.


the slasher of Helgate
A black-cloaked thing, about the size of a man, little else is really known about it. The slasher does have a fondness for opening up throats: it killed two women, one guard, and attacked Otto in the space of a few hours in episodes #301 and #302. After being trapped in the upper floors of the Sword and Cup, the slasher started a fire which gutted the building. Whether it survived is anybody's guess.


the iron golem of Maure Castle (R.I.P.)
Armed with a poison-coated diamond sword and a feather whip capable of stoning its victim, the golem proved invulnerable to all of the Adventurers weapons and spells. Baltek was the clever one to think to use the sword and dagger held by nearby statues. Using these weapons, Mongo and Eyer slew the thing in episode #369.


the shapeshifters (all RIP)
These bizarre creatures crawled from the bowels of the earth and instigated an insidious plot to take over Greyhawk. Green skinned with grey multi- faceted eyes, and made of some fibrous substance like dried grass, they were extremely tough to kill. There were at least four different kinds (or perhaps stages) of shapeshifters that were encountered: weak hatchlings, mature adults, larger and much more powerful adults, and one leader who was more powerful still. These creatures had the power to assume the form of their victim and in the process take all of his memories as well. They were never seen to assume a new form without first slaying a victim, but once they had assumed someone's identity they could revert to their natural appearance at will. The victim's corpse however, shriveled into dust, unrecoverable.
They were first encountered accidentally by Belphanior, Bosco, and Peldor in the sewers beneath Greyhawk in episode #248. The trio slew all of the creatures they encountered, and left the sewers behind, happy to be free of the damned things.
But at least some of the shapeshifters remained, for their colony sprang up again and caused much trouble for the Adventurers beginning in episode #381. Org Nenshen had been replaced by the leader of the shapeshifters. Using his influence as Guildmaster, he sent Peldor and his companions into a trap in the sewers. In the events that followed, nearly all of the shapeshifters were slain. The leader of the shapeshifters was finally slain by Peldor in episode #400. Any shapeshifters who might have survived were to be tracked down by the Wizards' Guild and exterminated as a threat to Greyhawk.


the Beast in the sewers
Often rumored to exist, and more often disbelieved, the thing was actually seen in episode #389 by Peldor and Otto. In the darkness, it was darker still, huge and scaly with equally enormous teeth and a monstrous tail. Many say it is a giant alligator, or perhaps a dragon, but whatever it may be one thing is certain: the sewers beneath Greyhawk belong to the Beast.


the evil lich
This fell being was glimpsed only briefly, as he clutched some dark relic within the Vesve Forest crypt, in Adventurers #455. See Skorvus.


the fire elemental lord
first appearance:              Adventurers #865
A twenty-foot-tall mass of bright yellow flames, this being was bound to a ring that Mongo wore, a ring that the dwarf thought merely granted fire resistance, but which was actually a ring of fire elemental command. The ring's full powers were enabled when it (and Mongo) were hit by a wave of unnaturally-hot demon fire; the ring summoned the fire elemental lord, who helped turn the tide of battle. The fires that this being unleashed were so powerful that they even burned the flesh of demons who were resistant to heat and fire. Before departing for its home plane, the elemental lord advised Mongo that he could call upon it once every moon, but also that doing so for trivial reasons would be unwise.


the Vizier
Never named, he served the Murad, Sultan of Zeif, but was secretly plotting his lord's assassination. After his plan was discovered, he fled, but ended up being eaten by a huge snake, with a little help from Peldor.


the wolf-man
first appearance:              Adventurers #834
changes into human form:       Adventurers #837
First seen as a huge black wolf with power over the other wolves, and then later seen changing form, this individual's human form was that of a tall, broadly-built hairy man with a thick beard. He was a werewolf and the leader of a pack that roamed that particular path through the Crystalmist Mountains. After watching Belphanior slay a large number of his "people", the wolf-man decided that for the good of the pack, Belphanior was best left alone. The elf was also left with a warning, however: he was an enemy in this area now, and had better not ever return. With that, the wolf-man led his surviving pack away into the woods as night fell.


inhabitants of the Isle of the Ape
These beings appeared at various times in episodes #480-#497. All of them were denizens of that strange, demi-planar island.


the cloud golem (R.I.P.)
One of several unusual guardians of Kronos' skyship when Belphanior first called it in episode #525. Though it packed a viscious punch, it proved quite vulnerable to an ice spell and was promptly shattered into a million pieces.


tentacled horror (R.I.P.)
Nothing more than a set of twelve massive tentacles attached to a savage toothed maw. Nothing less either. This beast, dwelling in the lower levels of Greyspire, slew two dwarven warriors before Mongo and the other dwarves managed to kill it in episode #556.


the medusae (R.I.P.)
Four of these foul creatures nearly wiped out Mongo's first command as a member of Greyspire's forces in episode #557. Only four dwarves escaped seeing their terrible faces, though the unlucky ones would eventually be restored to flesh.


the winged skull (RIP?)
One of Xusia's more unfortunate allies beneath Castle Mukos, this fleshless skull with wings was slapped by Peyote's bastard sword, magic missiled by Skektek's Staff of Power, slugged a few hundred feet by Ys' greatsword, and pinned to the wall by Jutokai's magic arrow. If these assaults didn't slay the unholy wretch, Rob's earthquake probably did.


Oracle of Espyria
first mentioned:               Adventurers #606
first heard:                   Adventurers #665
first appearance:              Adventurers #667
The Oracle of Espyria is a mysterious, legendary seer who makes her home atop Mount Aeon, within the Hellfurnaces. The way to her lair was guarded by powerful, mythical beasts and wards. A robed, shadowy individual, her power is quite real — she knew why Belphanior and Mongo were coming to see her, and also made some predictions about Belphanior's future that turned out to come true. The Oracle's main contribution was to give the party a piece of information that eventually led them to the Lost Isle of Panagaea.



The End
