personal - GemStone IV interview with mohgran

Interview with Mohrgan

Interview held on  Restday, day 27 of the month Eorgaen in the year 5109.


1: What is your name (required) and training level (not essential)

My Name is Mohrgan Leyah, Human of the lake country in Highmount. I know I'm not the strongest warrior in the lands, but I'd say that I've got enough experience as a fighter behind me to match well with whatever faces me down, and I'd like to think I've the courage and determination not to waver. [OOC: Level 87].

2: How long have you wandered the lands?

I first took to a life of travelling and training oh, some 11 years back. It's been a long time, I think, since I began, and I've come a long way

3: What hunting style do you opt for?

Early on I developed an affinity for the sword and shield. After years of trying about just about everything that I could hold in one hand that had a sharp edge, from broadswords to falchions to even a Krolvin backscratcher, I found the weapon which spoke to me and has been bound spiritually to me ever since. It is an old thing, that saw many battles before I ever came to possess it, my dir hafted vultite waraxe. I carry a tower shield in my left hand.

I know many warriors will argue that the two handed limb hacking claidhmores and mauls are the pure way to go, but I have found that foes will yield just as readily before my axe as anyone elses! And while the maul user is choking on his own blood, I will be braced behind my shield and the better off for it!

Additionally, I have made it a quest in my life to master unarmed combat through the gifts revealed to me along Voln's Path. My faculty at applying of the gifts of Kai and Phoen is rivaled by few, and the number of souls released by my hand in the name of my Lord Ronan are many times many. Recently, I am training to learn how to hurl an axe. I feel I am progressing rapidly, but I've still a way to go before I will truly master the intricacies.

4: What percentage of your time do you spend hunting? How do you spend your other time? And (5): What is and/or was your most enjoyable hunting area and why?

Recently, I have found little time to actually hunt the creatures of the lands. I have spent much of the past year in the forge, working to craft my own weapon. It is a craft that took me long to master, and even longer to bear fruit. But I finally have my perfect handaxe, and recently I have found a bit more time to spend out in the wilds.

When I hunt these days, I tend to spend most of my time in that strange and horrible Rift, the one past Lord Koar's Shrine up on the peak of Aenatumgana. It has challenges to my skill that never bore and keep me always alert, and I've yet to plumb the deepest, foulest and strangest of its recesses.

However, if I were to say truly, the island that I have made my home, even in my many travels of late, is the place that I love to be the most. Teras is the place where I spent my formative years, beginning from the time when I was afraid to venture into the Lava flats for the thraks and pyrothags, to the present, where the firey mages in the depths of the mountain do not challenge my skill. I cannot yet brave the Sunken Temple, lest it be at my peril, but I so look forward to the day when I can return home.

My most preferred place in all the lands, which I still consider my duty to visit, is to descend into Luukos' Gullet and up into his dark Temple. The soulstone golems and the windwraiths possessed therein are something of a personal crusade I continue to undertake, at the behest of my Lord Ronan.

6: What do you enjoy most about your time in the lands?

I love everything about Elanthia. I love to do my Lord Ronan's work. I love to fight for the innocent of the lands. My fondest nostalgias are some of the darkest hours of the lands, like when as a soldier of the Northern Fury, we beat back the forces of the Dark Alliance. Those years were grueling and terrible, but I look back on them as the greatest moments of glory, as well. The same can be said of the recent wars in Solhaven. These conflicts bring out the best in us all.

7: Is there anyone within the lands that you admire? (Any profession) Who and why?

I admire a great many of the adventurer's past and present who I look to for inspiration. Many of these are names that arose to prominence during the Griffin Sword Wars. The leaders of the Northern Fury with whom I fought under those campaigns, Valicar, Evelith…those of the Solhaven Campaign, Aydan, Nilandia, Misun…and so many more.

8: What has been your best moment in the lands so far?

My best moment in the lands was the night that the Dark Alliance fell.

9: What has been your worst moment in the lands so far?

The worst moment I have ever experienced was the night that Eryael animated the innocent children of Solhaven and set them against us in battle, and we were forced to slay them.

10: What advice would you give to a new warrior?

To a new warrior, I would just say to serve thyself with honor. If you stay true to your own conscience, then your regrets will be few. Look to the Light for your inspiriation.

11: If you had to do it all again, knowing what you now know, would you do anything differently?

I cannot think as to anything that I would change, other than to be around more time, if possible.

12: Is there anything you want to add to this interview?
