Born in the vicinity of Urugronk, Gronk grew up on the streets and trails of the orcish realms. Being gifted more with mundane powers than mental ones, he took up arms and the way of the warrior very early in his life and managed to eek out a living in the harsh area next to the goblin mountains, discovering his battle prowess during a goblin raid on his home village. After a few years, he moved to Freyburg and tried to live his life, working as bodyguard, enforcer, bouncer, whatever was available. Once, he was travelling to Downtown with some boring human merchant, the small carawan got attacked by octopi in the damp caves just outside of the city. Rushing to the defense, Gronk slipped on the wet floor, lost his footing and fell into the whirling waters. Despite his tremendous strength, he was drawn into the deadly vortex and would have died, if not someone had arrived via magical means and then levitated Gronk out of his soon to be wet grave. Catching his breath, he was told that his saviour was no one else but Grymheart the Guardian wizard, who then, after the merchant has reached his destination and Gronk's contract was fullfilled, returned to Freyburg and took the exhausted Orc with him. Being curious about the life of a Guardian, Gronk volunteered to stay with them for some time and help out here and there. After a while, he realized that this was a much more pleasing life than being a sword for hire. Many things did he learn during his early time with the Guardians, among them manners, the concept of help and generosity, but he also had masterful trainers in the art of battle, both mundane and magical. His masters during that time were, among others, Marten Broadcloak, Grymheart, Io and the elders Ajelae and Funklord. During this time, however, he found out that he prefered the mundane art of battle to the arcane arts. So, when it came to the time to choose his further way of living, he decided to become a knight, a master of the battle and leadership. Soon after while looking for spiritual guidance, he came across an ancient shrine dedicated to the Lord Aragorn whom he decided to follow as the values represented by the followers of the Old Codex seemed to be the most appropriate and fitting his train of thinking. Life was good and interesting for a long time, during which Gronk was elected as the banner bearer of Aragorn himself, he led countless raids against the evil denizens of the grasslands of Asgard, fought the battle of Ragnaroek, faced the evil Crimson King himself and many things more. He also managed to survive in the lethal arena and gained enough experience and knowledge to gain the title of Realmtraveller. In the course of his travels, he managed to find a new uncharted area below the fair city of Moonglow and helped to defend the city against the evil beings awoken from their slumbers. For this deed, he was allowed to ascend to the heavens and become the Lucent Knight, the master of war. Becoming a follower of Gronk is possible for orcs and trolls of all classes. But as he looks very kindly on warriors and favours prowess, warriors of other races may ask him to grant their wish. However, elves, dwarves, humans and vampires are generally not accepted. What does being a greenskin, a member of the Orcish Battle Line, mean? A followership means kinship, means working together. Orcs have enough problems with the other races, they do not need strife among themselves. Consider yourself superior to other races and act accordingly: never be too friendly to elves, dwarves, humans or vampires. Gronk seeks to strengthen the orcish race in order to ensure their superiority and their survival, therefore you will be asked to fullfill a quest now and then. Be prepared for that. Minimum level to join: 10 Align: all allowed, though good or neutral is prefered.
