Sentinals of Larith
Braath, the greater
Brath the Greater, the leader of an ogre tribe in the nearby hills, began to perform breed-
ing experiments tainted with dark magic upon his charges. The result was an unholy fusion of insect and ogre. Pleased with his success, Brath continued the experiment, hoping to build an army of these insectile ogres with which he could conquer the surrounding territory. The new ogres were highly industrious and worked diligently to alter their cavern home in the
hills near Elton to their leader’s specifications.
On the night of the planar anomaly, Brath the Greater vanished from his home, sucked through a rift that appeared in the cavern wall. His son, Brath the Lesser, caught a brief glimpse of the realm into which his father had been pulled. Always a studious youngster, he had read much about other planes and decided that the realm his father now occupied must be one of these. Unable to rescue his father (and disinclined to do so anyway, since he dearly wanted to assume leadership of the tribe), he decided to investigate the anomaly further and see whether any of its effects could be turned to his advantage.
