Description

Ransook is considered by many to be the greatest warrior who ever lived. He lived centuries ago, traveling the kingdoms of Ithria and fighting in many great battles. His victories could not easily be counted. Fear and respect were heaped upon his name. Over the years, his adventures have become legend.

Ransook is known to have had many glorious battles. Among the most notable is the battle he fought with a young white dragon in the snowy north lands of the Dragonclaw Mountains in 2200 CY. During the battle, he managed to shoot out one of the dragon's eyes with a well aimed arrow. The dragon, who still lives today, is now known as Cyclops.

In 2240 CY, while traveling through grumman lands, the venerable warrior was staying in a small town in Khenshire when the town was attacked by a great band of raiders. He joined the town's meager militia and battled the raiders. Stories state that at one point in the battle, Ransook stood alone against forty men and bested them all. He slew the leader of the group as well and sent the rest of the hoard fleeing. Ransook, however, was mortally wounded during the fight. The town's only healer was unable to save him and Ransook died that night from his wounds. They buried him beneath a great cairn of stones just outside the town and renamed the town after him.

Ransook's grave has become something of a local attraction. Even now, centuries later, warriors and historians will often stop by to pay their respects when travelling through Khenshire.

A few decades ago, a hooded figure came in the night, stood of the grave and cast a spell. Some say this wizard took the body of Ransook away with that spell, though the stones have never been moved to confirm or deny this.
