Shadows of Bal-Shanaar
A man in exile...
Herg was first encountered in Groth, where he was one of the village’s caravan guards. Herg was burly and intimidating. Unbeknownst to the town elders he was raiding the stores of hamlets wiped out by the mysterious effects of the wild magic infection. In order to protect himself, he murdered Lars’ father and uncle when they found out what he had been up to. Eventually the party brought him to justice; the town elders exiled him to the land, a fate equivalent to death.
Herg was later encountered in the city of Vargheim, where it turned out that his exposure to the infection had tainted him. His justice was final this time, when Carric drove the knife he had earned with Lars deep into the now wiry, disturbing man’s gut.
