Jamnut Thaumaturgical Reposessions

Undas cast a spell and flew from Faroth, heading south to Bulgar valley, into the far southern Sing’jar mountains between where the Kenku live and the High Elves live, under the shadow of the southern volcano. Elador’nis, priest of Elhona, Father of Oaks, met with him. Undas, of whom a prouder gnome could not be found, this time encouraged his height with his first shield gaurdian, presented a sapling from the Moonsea realm. Elador’nis was speachless seeing something prized of his kin, heard only through legend. One can only imagine the amount of resentment it actually built towards the gnome.

This was typical of Undas’s social interactions. Being such a powerful conjurer, and so focused, his social interaction was still coarse.

Generations of human wizards, elven wizards, dwarven clerics, and a family of stone giants knew of his akward, off-center tactics. Eventually Ji’ilna Lul’linar, a halfling warlock, was the one to develop a relationship with him 200 years later. They would marry and establish the Jamnut Fender Works foundry below Faroth.

Undas hired a variety of earth races to build them an underground workshop: multiple levels, with various underground streams, and at the bottom was a magma pool. Henceforth, this eclectic annex became a business, attacting skilled gnomes, exiled dwarves and metalworkers from across the bay. With magic and skill, a variety of arts and prototypes shown at parties evolved into armors, weapons and defenses put on auction in the Undas fairgounds in the center of Faroth. The final touches would be added courtesy of a stone giant named Thromcron.

Seven hundred years later, these fairgrounds would be neglected ruins inhabited by bugbears fighting refugees from Sing’jar. But in the intervening centuries, the arrival of Crimskil and Rodorax to the east side of the Sing’jar mouontains changed everything. After political embarassment, the Forest elves separated ties to the High elves to the south. The High elves then attempted to enslave the Minotars which then escape. The south seas boiled with evil serpents and the Yuan-ti appeared and conquered the area south of Witclif (the Whitechalk Cliffs). Crimskill destroyed the brotherhood of stone giants in the Sing’jar mountains and chased Thromcron to Sing’jar, followed by a legion of orcs fostered by Rodorax. Rodorax charred the forests and southern Sing’jar bay, until he was stopped by the bronze dragon. Faroth was mostly obliterated by the onsaught of Crimskil, seeking to destroy Thromcron.

Undas, during all this time, stoked his fires and studies his books. Jamnut Fenderworks was incorporated to sell his magical armors and seige weapons that defended Faroth and Sing’jar bay through many battles. The Forest elves, unfortunately, had nothing to pay and too much pride to emploly a gnome to help defend them. The forest elves fell in droves to both orcs, drow and undead that poured from the east after Ludhold, to the east, fell. Jamnut sent a magically armored Ger’nome squad to the Sing’jar mountains to hold the pass. They are the reason Feltor and his squadrons remain.

Other Ger’nome squads where dispatched south to Belgar Island and north east to the Octran Islands, to help defend against the dragonspawn of Rodorax. These battles garnered the attention of actors in the Etherial plane, and Undas was then introduced to a variety of avatars, devils and daemons across the universe. These encounters became sabatoge and assasination attempts that eventually killed Ji’ilna, and Undar traded in favors to conjure a pocket dimension to retreat to, escaping the agents of the Abyss and Hades.

The pocket dimension is only possible because of the celestial proximity of the fey realm to the Faroth realm. Thus a gate to Fog’nia was summoned. From this traveling pocket of Feywild, he rescued the last green dragon from a battle with Rodorax; and El-Vernon’ix became Undas’s planar navigator.

Debts began to trouble Jamnut. Customers from so many different planes often felt that non-payment was something they could get away with. Thus the Thaumaturgical Repossessor team was created.
