Kalgren Great Axe

Kalgren was born into the Axe clan of Valgard.  The clan eschews the famed Valgardian sword in favor of the single bit great axe.  Kalgren gained fame at the Battle of the Ice Flats where the Axe clan faced the combined warriors of four other clans.  After hours of battle the Axe clan's shield-wall broke.  The clansmen began to fall back in disorder but Kalgren stood.  He let loose with a mighty war cry and fought, weaving a wall of blood-flecked steel with his battle-axe.  He piled the bodies of his enemies around him.  His defense was so fierce that the enemies' advance halted as they pressed around him, striving to strike him down.  This respite allowed the men of the Axe clan to rally and counterattack.  The Axe clan carried the day.  They found 19 slain foe-men around Kalgren as well as the parts of many more.  As a battle prize, he took a gilt helm from the body of a dead chieftain.  Kalgren's name will live forever in sagas of the Valgard.

However bright his renown burned in the North, it was not enough for Kalgren.  He soon contracted a serious case of wanderlust.  The only cure was to set his feet on the paths leading to the southlands.  He went, determined to carve his name in the annals of the Southern kingdoms as he had the North.

  1. Gotta love those Northern barbarians. This makes we want to play an "all barbarian" BoL campaign.

    Like the new stela, by the way.
