Rise of the Runelords
The Runelord of Greed, Karzoug (pronounced kahr-ZOOG), was the ruler of the Thassilonian realm of Shalast during the Age Before Ages.
Karzoug has been slowing recovering from his suspended animation. The Runelord’s power was so strong that during the fall of Thassilon, Karzoug was able to delay death in hopes of returning to this world. Those days appear to be upon use as Karzoug is growing ever more powerful each day. Minions throughout Varisia are active in building armies, forming alliances against men, and performing blood sacrifices that empower the slumbering Runelord.
