Biography[edit | edit source]

Before The Re-Slayer's Take[edit | edit source]

According to legend, long before 837 PD,[fn 1] Putridius was a powerful druid and a member of the Slayer's Take. Despite this, he abhorred and was envious of nature, having been denied greater power from the spirits of the Vesper Timberland. He turned to dark magic in order to "bring nature itself to its knees before him". Other members of the Slayer's Take caught word that Putridius was performing a ritual at Dead Man's Table. Using forbidden texts, his ritual would instill him with the power of decay itself. Many of the Take fell in battle attempting to stop him. As he nearly completed the ritual, the forest's spirits interrupted the ritual and turned the blight against him, and he disappeared. Dead Man's Table remained barren ever after, and it is said that the Timberblight's screams can still be heard on the north wind.[1]

The Re-Slayer's Take[edit | edit source]

Timpani Guff suspects that The Timberblight has somehow returned, and is responsible for raising monsters previously defeated by the Slayer's Take back from the dead in the form of ghosts and spirits. He tried repeatedly to tell this to the Take, but has been rebuffed at every turn. Some time between 837 and 843 PD, Timpani and his friend Poogs recruited a group of adventurers to defeat these spirits, calling themselves The Re-Slayer's Take.[2]
