  • Upriseing

Before Tortle began his life as a wanderer seeking to discover the secrets hidden within magic, he lived a simple life as an apprentice tortillian shaman. Nearing the end of his apprenticeship he was tasked by the village’s shaman to go discover the reason why the lakes surrounding his village were so bountiful and that the resulting information would give him the knowledge and understanding to take up the mantle of village shaman. Months past and Tortle returned to his village with the secrets of his homeland. However, the village had been destroyed by fire, which should have been impossible as his village was almost entirely made up of marshlands. Looking for answers to what could have happened to his home he stumbled across a message in the form of a magical rune left by his master. The rune explained that the followers of an unknown god had come to reclaim the homelands of his people in the name of their god, and that when his people tried to resist, they were burned away by the god’s holy fire. His master’s final wish was that Tortle did not try to avenge his people but rather find another place in which his people could start over again. Out of respect for his people and their customs he set out on a journey to find a place where he could call home, however this experience served as a reminder that those without the proper knowledge are powerless to defend themselves. Tortle wandered aimlessly gathering all the knowledge he could in every town that he found himself in. He found himself lost in study for years and was amazed at the different practical uses of magic that other races had come up with, however he saw war magics as uninspiring; it was much more interesting to control realty than to destroy it. Tortle decided that he would liberate his homeland from the cultists from so many years ago, but in accordance with his master’s wishes would not directly harm them. From this day forward he resolved himself to gain the power to control what could be a god, and he figured the only way to do this was to become a god himself.given that there was no known record of anyone achieving this feat he knew that he would have to obtain all the knowledge there was in the world.
