129 years ago

  • Grew up in war-torn xxx.
  • When still quite young, her father apprenticed her to a fine warsmith, who began training her.
  • Her settlement of YYY was attacked by ZZZ, and many of them died, including her family and her master.
    • She fought bravely, but was struck down.
    • She awoke with a vision from Moradin, who bid her find the scion of one of the Nakaltian noble houses and get him back to Nakaltia, finding the First Forge of Moradin.
  • When she awoke, she had the blessings of a cleric of the Soulforger.

Seeking the First Forge of Moradin

Level 1 - 4 • 92 years ago

  • Rodena searched and found Guvran, the nephew of Lady Alsendar Stonecaller.
    • Guvran was a theologian who'd been studying the old remnants of Moradin worship in xxx.
    • His companions and defenders had been slain during the heights of the war, and he wasn't sure how he would get back home.
    • Rodena found him, and then put together a small band of dwarves, gnomes and humans to help get them back to Nakaltia.
  • They traveled to Estland, ending up exploring a dungeon for a patron who claimed she'd be able to get them back home, but who turned out to be a liar.
  • They crossed Kovannah Lake and Lake Omen, ending up in Ma-Kare thanks to some hoven pirates.
    • Rodena traded some of her skill repairing machines of war in hopes of getting freed, but the mechanist who'd purchased them was attacked in some internecine power struggle.
    • They were forced to seek the underground, and eventually found their way back out of Ma-Kare.
  • They fled Ma-Kare to Galkus, and signed aboard a ship as defenders, and deboarded in Ulgo, finally making their way back to Cal Darga across Rulgir Lake.
  • Rodena was brought to the temple of Moradin, and initiated as ones of its High Forgers.
  • She also married Guvran, becoming Rodena Stonecaller.

The Underdeeps Battles

Level 5 - 9 • 74 years ago

  • As a Stonecaller, Rodena brought her clerical power to aid in the defense of the ancient Mordinsamman temples from strange under-dwelling assailants.
  • During this time, she led an attack against a shadow dragon in the deeps beneath Nakaltia, and led a raid against a kuo-toa lair.
  • The outpost she and other Stonecallers - including her husband Guvran - was attacked many times during this time.
  • She bore a son, Morgath, during this time, and was greatly lauded by House Stonecaller for doing so.
    • Shortly thereafter, however, drow attacked the Stonecaller outpost, and her husband died defending the babe Morgath.
    • One of her old adventuring companions, the gnome transmuter and alchemist named Audrigarr, learned of the attack and teleported in to find Rodena covered in drow blood, hammer in one hand and babe in the other, with ever-increasing drow forces pressing the attack.
    • Audrigarr got them out of there.
  • Once Morgath was safe with his great-aunt in Thautam, Rodena gathered a force to take back the outpost and lay waste to the drow.
  • She fought as part of this war - aided by Audrigarr, her boon companion - for another several years before they were ultimately successful.
  • During this time, she learned the great Secret of the Mordinsamman.
  • She then returned home to retire from war long enough to raise her son with House Stonecaller.

The Alchemists' War

Level 10 - 1337 years ago

  • Her good friend Audrigarr disappeared one day, and her divinations revealed that he was likely in Zalcoryn, kidnapped as part of an old rivalry with a treacherous alchemist and necromancer of that nation.
  • This led to her allying with her old adventuring company and a ranger friend of Audrigarr's, and venturing into Zalcoryn to recover him.
  • This time led to them dealing with the necromancer's plot, culminating in an incursion into the Dark Infinity where the necromancer hoped to animate the semi-material remains of an ancient god into an undead horror under his control.
    • They also discovered other captives, including a wood elf that did not speak any of their languages. Her name was Uriellanathé.
  • They escaped and made their way back to Nakaltia.
    • Uriella turned out to be from the nation of Misanta, south of Nakaltia, and returned there.

In Elven Lands

Level 14 - 15 • 13 years ago

  • A magical message from Uriella spurred Rodena and Audrigarr to the nation of Misanta, to assist her.
  • There they found she'd been killed, though Rodena attempted to return her to life through divine magic.
    • They discovered that whatever had killed her had scoured her soul from her body; without that soul freed, she couldn't return her to life.
  • They discovered a horrifying cult dedicated to feeding monstrous entities the souls of the pure, hidden deep in the forests of Misanta.
  • Rodena and Audrigarr joined a small band of elven adventurers, led by Uriella's older sister, a powerful druidess, in stopping these horrors.
  • Audrigarr was killed as part of the assault on the vine-strangled ancient ruins where the cult made its lair, but they succeeded at defeating the cult.
  • Upon trying to raise Audrigarr, Rodena found that his soul preferred the comfort of the afterlife his heroism had earned him.
  • She did manage to return Uriella to life, however.

The Opening of Gol Dragga

Level 16 • 1 year ago

  • With the opening of the Gates of Gol Dragga, Rodena led the expedition to settle and explore the ancient dwarven capital.
  • While she was down there, a civil war broke out and the nephew of the king convinced her to that his side was righteous, as the king and his followers were fallen to an insane chaos god cult.
  • Her explorations into the ancient city uncovered magical items that were funnelled to the rebels, who used them - along with eleventh hour aid from the Champions of Ravenholt - in throwing down the old mad king and the cult of followers.
