1 Grondthanc on Fri Mar 16, 2012 8:07 pm

Name: High Chieftain Grondthanc Grimhammer
Race: Trall
Age: Young, 65 years old
Height: 7'9 (on the slightly taller side of most Trall)
Skin color: Obsidian black
Eye color: Orange
Class: Barbarian
Birthplace: Dharfang, the Citadel



Bio
The son of the former High Chieftain Grandthanc II Grondthanc's story is one that has sent him all over the face of Elberen. Being a prince he spent most of his childhood and into his teenage years (20-40 for Trall) being the next Trall in line for the supreme crown of the Trall empire, this all changed when he was 52 years old (still very young for a trall he had only just entered adulthood). He was wandering down one of the massive tunnels known as the Dharfang Highway when a he spotted a human being cowering behind one of the large pillars that lined the tunnel. He had not seen a Human before...only heard tales of their horrid deeds and what cowardly monsters they where, Grondthanc still felt pity for the human and tried to aid him on finding a way out of the tunnels. The human soon explained that he had been lost in the caverns for weeks and only just found the highway but was now totally lost. Grondthanc with as much stealth as he had led the human up to the grand gate...only to be stopped by guards and hauled back to Dharfang being called a "traitor" and "thin-skin ally". He was soon tried, and sentanced to banishment from Dharfang. His own father cast him out.

Thirteen years later Grondthanc had traded one life for another, he had set up a ramshackle house on the outer edge of the eldenwood and his life consisted of chopping down a remarkable amount of trees for no reason it seemed, drinking cheap whiskey, and smoking cigars. He could often be found drinking in Shalin's tavern, and when I mean drink I mean DRINK. Grondthanc would often consume at least half a keg of ale on a nightly average and often had others pay for it simply because they wanted to see if he could truly drink it all. In these times he would often throw bandits and brigands about on the streets if ever they where foolish enough to attack him, Grondthanc's actions where so famed in Aranorn that soon a song or two was wrote for him, one of these was Grondthanc the Mighty,

"Grondthanc the mighty!
Grondthanc the tall!
Ol' Grond will throw others about like a ball,
Over your homes
And to the hills,
Grond will break bones that will never heal!"

The songs where made by drunken men in a bar so their quality left something lacking.



On a warm summers day 13 years after Grondthanc was banished he walked into Shallin's Garden as he often did but met two Elde and ended up tearing apart the inn in combat with another Trall by the end of the night with the help of the elden shaman of little renown know as Andel, the other Elden who avoided the battle was named Tain. This is the event that started everything, after one or two adventures with the elden Grondthanc found himself pulled back to Dharfang by request of his ill father Grandthanc II. To cut the chase of the Grond's whole story, Grandthanc kicked the bucket and Grondthanc is now the high chieftain Dharfang, the largest Trall tribe in Elberen.

Well I guess I won't be stealing this guy's pants (note that he doesn't seem to be wearing any)
Sheesh, maybe I'd better rethink my character idea *rethinkingrethinkingrethinking*

Hmm..an interesting idea. A woodsman Trall. He would definitely not fit in to regular Trallish society, but I can see this providing some interesting RP ideas. Well done!

And I think the axe completes the outfit. Razz

10 I would think my final image of Grond on Sun Apr 15, 2012 10:38 pm

These are images I LOVE they hold such character. Make the skin black and this IS Grondthanc. Oh and take away the shield...Tralls don't use the things.

And here is one that would be similar to these ones just more realistic. Boys and girls...this is Grondthanc.

That last one is the most perfect representation of a Trall that I've seen yet. I vote we make that one 'official'. Smile

You should crop that one and make it your avatar pic!

12 Re perfect trall on Sun Apr 15, 2012 11:49 pm

I completely and utterly agree, of course there are much much larger Trall than Grond (his father for example, now he is massive). But just imagine this bad boy in a duster and hat with those braids blowing behind him...it's Grond! I Also love this one's skin.

We love that you post stuff and are so creative and resourceful!

I like that interior shot and I think I like the second exterior better.

Did he build the house himself or did he just chuck out the inhabitants?

20 Re house build on Fri Apr 20, 2012 4:55 pm

Haha he could have stolen a home if he wished! But no, he made his home that's why it's so ramshackle. I imagine bits of steel as well as wood making the bulk of the house. And do remember it's about 2 times the size of a human home.

I hope he plans on entertaining his guests with a feast. Razz

Oh, and remember, one of his guests is unconscious.
