“Ah, there you are” chimes a snide and sneering scribe, “I was hoping you weren’t too distraught from your assignments. As it turns out, something of a thorn in the side of His Highest’s rival has resurfaced. You know of whom I speak, the Devil Strahd of the County Barovia. Tales tell of an enemy, Duke Gundar, that he has returned in revenge.” The scribe lays out an assortment of maps, parchments and sealed documents. “Be a good adventurer, by the master’s decree and look into it. I suspect someone is imitating that bumbling lord who gave The Devil Strahd a hard time.” The mysterious scribe rubs his hands, giggling madly as you are supernaturally compelled to gather the supplies and head out. For some reason, you can’t remember what lead to your arrival at that building, save for that you were returning to Darkon. You were always returning to Darkon. But, what matters now is another land. What matters is Gundarak.
Author’s Note: Behold, more details to the underdeveloped Gundarakites, Gundarak and Duke Gundar. My plan was to have plenty of things involving other domains, as well as a Planescape-inspired Cluster to build off of Reality’s End. Anyway, that will be another post. My stuff on Gundarak took over. Also, once again a huge shout out to the Prisoners of the Mist community! A minor character in this whole mess has its roots from there. But, hopefully this will be my last post on that domain, so I can focus on other things? Also, why was Jacques Renier never really brought up in canon after the Realm of Terror boxed set?
