GITP - All Monks
Grandmaster Fargrim Dóteagmháil the Flame-Hand
Nearly two centuries ago, Fargrim Dóteagmháil (LN Male Azer Expert/Monk) left his beloved home in the great City of Brass, in the Elemental Plane of Fire to lead an excavation team that would lay claim to a newly discovered mine, rich with exotic gems that could give the advantage to his kin in the trade war against the Efreet.
But the Efreet sought to claim the mine as well and had already sent their slaves to the site, where they met the Azer in battle before either could even begin setting camp. Fargrim and his team of miners fought heroically against the slaves’ overwhelming numbers, and managed to gain ground in the skirmish, until he encountered one efreeti who cast a spell that sent him reeling through a fissure in the mine and hurling through the planes, where he came crashing down on the Material Plane of Oerth near the rolling hills of Abbor-Alz. Barely alive and shivering from the comparative cold of the Material Plane, he survived the night by sleeping on a bed of burning tinder, not knowing or caring that one day it would be the central altar of the temple that celebrated him.
His monastery fosters an ideology of toil, discipline, and self-sacrifice.
