Background
While he has been travelling with these companions for some time, Aronan has been tight lipped about his deep seated reasons for leaving Korindia. Surely, the pursuit of knowledge was a key factor. Following in the footsteps of the great Kor, to travel the lands, see what is good in each person and in each race, and bring that goodness back to Korindia to better their society. A noble pursuit for sure, but not always enough to drive someone from a tropical island paradise. Sipping quietly on his stout Aronan shares the story of his arrival on the mainland.

“Truth be told, I am not one of the chosen of our people. I will never be first speaker of the council of elders or first master of Kor-In. There is little I have to give to my people, and what little I did have was taken away,” taking another long sip to collect his thoughts as much to quench his thirst the Korindian continues, “My home was along the coast. Set among the trees, looking over the white sands and blue waters of the northern shore. We did occasional trade with passing ships and, so, when another passed by we went out to meet them. Instead of traders we were met by slavers. They had metal weapons, nets, and even magic. We all fought well, in the ways of Kor-In, but many died or were taken. Including my own family - my father Aronan was killed. My mother and sister, Belissa and Dala, were taken. Our homes were burned during the fighting and we fled into the jungles until the Fists of Kor arrived. By that time the vagrants had beat a hasty retreat with many of our men and women in tow,” Aronan pauses again to look over the group he does not seems sad, but simply resigned. “Without a family or tradition to follow I was raised in the ways of Kor-In, studying the legends of Kor - although not very well. But, in my tenth year of study Kor came to me in a vision. He said that I did have something to give - my nothingness. Some are called to wander like he did, alone but for the betterment of all. To learn and then return. With nothing tying me to the island, I left for the metal and madness of the mainland.”

Stopping he raises his glass in a toast, “May I return to the shores of Korinda once more.”

Gear
  • Korindian Studded Armor: +2 armor, -2 coverage
  • Ironwood Staff: Str+d6; Reach 1"; Parry +1
  • Bracers: +1 Parry
Cloak of Sanctuary
Details
Knowing the rangers who spend so long on the road are often stuck between cities an without the comforts of home Queen Anabel solicited this special cloak.
This magical cloak looks to be made of sturdy wool, well hemmed and cut, the color varies from greys to greens by angle and lighting, but in all angles the royal crest of House Velthana can be seen repeatedly along the hems.

When the wearer pulls the cloak off and incants a brief cantrip the the cloak expands and shapes itself to whatever basic shape the wearer desires as a tent from as small as a 5’ circle to as large as a Medium Burst Template.

The owner can enter the tent and allows others to come and go, while inside the room is maintained at 21 degrees (70F), with low humidity. Any attempt to breach the tent by someone other than the person who said the incantation must penetrate a barrier as hard as stone with a toughness of 10 per 1”.

Once activated the cloak has enough power to remain in effect for up to Spirit x2 hours before collapsing in on itself. Once the cloak collapses it requires 12 hours to recharge enough essense to be used again.

This investigation intrigues Aronan. Learning these customs is exactly why he is here. It demonstrates Kor's wisdom in expecting people to speak the Ruth plainly.

"Our island is Kor's legacy," the elder began as he spoke to the assembled initiates. "We preserve his legacy by maintaining his edicts, avoiding the customs of the mainland and following the Way of Kor. Yet, while Kor established the island, he did also travel the known worlds. It was these travels that helped shape the Way of Kor. Thus, to be truly his devotees we cannot always be turned inward but also look outward to learn. To follow the way of Kor asks some of us to follow his way of wandering and learning."

The group of initiates sat silently listening to the speech. Being a wanderer was both an honor and an indictment. It meant you got to see the world, it also meant the elders felt you did not fit on the island. Aronan knew most certainly he way the latter. Thus, when the elder called him forward as a wanderer he only nodded knowingly.

"Aronan, follow in the footsteps of Kor and bring us enlightenment. May this staff help you to walk in his ways."

Giving a bow Aronan accepted the staff, "I shall bring wisdom to our island."

Returning to his place he examined the staff. Wood of the island, but blessed by the elders.
