The Rod of Seven Parts
Hailing from the Earthfast Mountains in southern Impiltur, Bjorn Slatecutter was formerly a stonemason once assigned to the rebuilding of the city of the same name. (Earthfast). A change in ruler-ship scrapped the project and Bjorn left the area (much like 90% of the rest of the city’s dwarven population.) after taking several odd jobs including bodyguard, Bjorn drifted away from the family trade of stonemason and gained experience with the warhammer and mercenary work, and eventually turned to adventuring to seek his fortune. With the recent death of the hereditary ruler Torg mac Cei in King Azoun of Cormyr’s crusade against the barbarians of the east, Earthfast seems a grim, doomed city.
