One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
Has anyone done writeups of Kelanen, Murlynd, Keoghtom, Heward, et al, as epic level NPCs? Or are they beyond even this? I'd be interested to see... _________________ Greyhawk is dead; long live Greyahwk! It is not heresy; I will not recant!
Murlynd should either be Divine Rank 1 or in the process of becoming so. That might make an interesting epic adventure. If Zagyg needed to imprison nine demigods to ascend, what would Murlynd need to do? It would have to be something that is compatable with his alignment, so it would need to be a different path. A group of PCs may have to undertake an adventure in order to help (or hinder if their alignment and/or motives dictate such) this process.
This is a great adventure idea, especially if you don't want the PCs to ascend. I was already thinking the same thing about Keoghtom. He has appeared more than once in my campaign - and not in the same temporal order as the PCs encountered him. :) I was planning to bump him to DvR 1 as well. But I don't know how. Something to do with helping the Party take down Iuz I think.
There are as many ways to ascend, I would think, as there are deities - and then some. I don't think any 2 ascend the same way. Kelanen had to past tests of athletics, acrobatics, and swordsmanship. Zagyg had to maser binding - binding the unbindable demigods, Iuz - well we don't know how he did it - before or after he was captured. I think it was before, by harvesting the power of the undead - the Soul Husks - rumored to be undead ancient Suel Power Mages. Mayaheine was sponsored by Pelor for acts of Valor.
So Murlynd, you have to consider his background. Plane hopper, not bound by mortal limitations (gunpowder), perhaps he has already done enough to earn DvR1 - or the PCs could help him find and control another new technology that would make that happen. If he could invent something....epic!
