Crimmnor the Slayer, Fist of Geada and War Chief of the Ice Walkers


"This land is ours... So has it been decreed by the Icy Mother. So it shall be."


Ambitious even for among his kind, Crimmnor the Slayer seeks no less than to conquer the Northlands and the Savage Coast -- and indeed, the whole world, if it was possible -- and cover it in an eternal winter in emulation of the frosty realm of his goddess Geada, the Icy Mother. As such, through his martial prowess, the divine power bequeathed upon him by his deity, and surprising political savvy, he had set out to gather a force to help make that vision a reality. Though he had united all the transient frost giant and hill giant tribes of the Icy Peaks under his banner, it was not enough... No, he needed something larger, something that can crush the weak cities and kingdoms south of the Icy Peaks under its heel.

It took several years, requiring quite a bit of manipulation and sometimes outright intimidation, but Crimmnor was able to amass the horde he needed: an awesome army of hundreds of thousands of orcs, ogres, goblins, trolls, giants, and even a few white dragons. He unleashed this massive host upon the unwary realm of the Northern Marches, before allowing it to rampage across the other holdings of the fallen kingdom of Northfast. Seeing the might of his gathered army, the frost giant was sure that his dominion was assured, but he underestimated the tenacity of the survivors from the Marches, and it would prove to be the ruin of his plans.

Rallying around a new leader, the men and women of the Marches harried the horde in its tracks. At first, they were considered a minor nuisance, but as the campaign wore on, and the ragtag bands started to actually do some damage, Crimmnor found it hard to ignore them any longer. He was forced to divert more and more of his army from the front lines just to protect the supply lines, and while it caused considerable losses to the offending guerillas, they still harrassed his army's march. The near-constant stream of ambushes took its toll, and daring raids of adventurers into his camps only served to aggravate the situation, not to mention the intervention of the thrice-damned elven archmage Lothiel.

When his horde met the allied armies of the Savage Coast, it was little more than half its starting strength. While still relatively massive, the more organized and better-equipped soldiers from the city-states, fortified by their priests and given support by their wizards, dealt the horde a crushing blow. Crimmnor himself managed to escape, along with his tribe and a pair of white wyrms, but the frost giant swore revenge on those that caused victory to slip from his grasp. He has since then been biding his time in his tribe's hidden fortress, rebuilding his army's strength, waiting for the day that he can once more unleash it upon the lands of the Savage Coast.

Built like a boulder and as imposing as the rest of his kin, Crimmnor wears his snow-white hair uncharacteristically short, and has broken with frost giant tradition by having his beard shaved, revealing a ruggedly handsome, if somewhat cold, face. He wears a massive suit of full plate burnished blue, and a fur cloak crafted from dire wolf pelts. Crimmnor's weapon, a massive greataxe that belonged to his father, the former jarl, is slung across his back, which can be brought to bear surprisingly quickly to bear upon any soul unlucky enough to stoke his icy anger.
