The Stoned Artist
The Gnome “Alby” was the youngest member of the Seekers of the Sun Mercenaries, who, after the events of the Battle of Celestia Arch, chose to continue adventuring for many years. His journey was to master the magic found in art. He has since stopped adventuring (at least for now) in order to train students in his form of artistic magic.
Our stalwart band of adventurers discovered him in the kitchen of his art school turned to stone by a treacherous fellow professor.
