A cultist devoted to Orcus. The mysterious power behind Irontooth's kobold brigands.
After following a couple of key leads the adventurers were able to track down Irontooth, the leader of the kobold brigands that had been menacing the road to Winterhaven for some weeks. When Irontooth fell, his dying words were, “Kalarel and Lord Orcus, prepare my way!”
This statement was ominous enough, but later the adventurers found a scroll in Irontooth’s belongings. It contained a message written in Common and was signed by Kalarel. The message reads, “My spy in Winterhaven suggests we keep an eye out for visitors to the area. It probably does not matter; in just a few more days, I’ll completely open the rift. Then Winterhaven’s people will serve as food for all those Lord Orcus sends to do my bidding.”
Nothing else of this Kalarel was known,…. until….
A few adventurers departed to handle other things and new ones seemed to arrive in time to take their place. This crew fought their way down into the keep on the Shadowfell and faced off against Kalarel, whose preparations for opening a planar rift were nearly complete. The fight was long and soul rending on many different levels, but in the end… Kalarel was carried across the veil in ravens claws.
