#2 – Thorn

| November 2, 2010 | 3 Comments

Thorn was a scholar and adventurer in the late 1800’s.

He spent years at the University trying to locate an ancient artifact called the Orb of Glash. Legend said that he who touches the orb would receive three gifts. Magical powers to control the elements, immortality, and all the knowledge in the world.
After years of searching, he finally located the orb. He laid his hands on it and as promised, he was imbued with great magical powers, he became immortal, and he received all the knowledge in the world. But the knowledge was a curse! His ears could hear every voice on the planet, his mind captured every thought that came to anybody’s mind, and his eyes saw every vision that anyone saw. He nearly went mad from the unending bombardment of information.
Using his superior intellect he constructed a specially designed helmet to keep the noise out of his head. Now, trapped behind a metal facade, he spends his days using his magical powers to try to destroy the world so that he can once again emerge from his prison.

    Ah, now there’s a REAL reason for an evil overlord to wear spiked armor. Good idea. Also, here’s a thought, who or what is Glash?
