Attitudes and Beliefs
Two sample Trulkor adventurers are described below.
Grue is a Trulkor rogue, as comfortable in the shadows of the world as in the blackness of the Underdark. He moves with the grace of a panther and can be uncannily silent when he chooses. In combat, he finds his mind slipping out of time, as though he were watching himself and his foes moving at a snail’s pace. His enemies’ attacks are easy to calculate, their defenses easy to anticipate and circumvent. Combat is an art of life or death in his mind, and he believes in winning at any cost.
Vaewulf is a Trulkor ranger who prefers not to talk about his life before leaving the underdark. He spent most of his life fighting for survival, laying traps to protect his home and hunting various creatures for food. Risking his life day in, day out to remain hidden from his enemies. His life turned upside down on his eightenth birthday, when a group of adventurers found themselves in the same encounter with a group of drow. Impressed with the young ranger's skill. the adventures befriended the Trulkor and asked him to guide them through the maze of the underdark. He never returned home, because that first adventure led him into many more.
