A Kind of Homecoming
Born in Thay and trained as a Red Wizard, Myrddin Viligoth was one of the few individuals with the courage and strength to escape that dark country. Travelling west, he came to Damara shortly after the fall of the Witch King and sought out the heroes that had defeated Zhengyi. Powerful beyond his years, he carried warnings to them of the potential threat represented by Thay. Myrddin found a kindred soul in the archmage Emelyn the Gray, who was a close confidant of Gareth Dragonsbane’s, and the two became good friends.
Myrddin saw that Gareth’s plans for a new kingdom would require grassroots support from the southern reaches and with Emelyn, he founded the Twilight Riders, a band of six powerful adventurers dedicated to spreading Gareth’s message with their actions.
When Gareth was crowned king, Myrddin and the other members of the Twilight Riders faded into obscurity and few, if any, know what became of the archmage and his friends.
