The Shaded Vale
Fastor was the Lord Mage of Fastormel. 200 years ago, when the Bloodspear Orcs attacked the village, Fastor retreated to his magical tower. There he hastily built secret chambers underground and created a series of enchanted traps to protect his greatest treasure: his own knowledge. He ultimately performed a ritualy that took his life, but sent his soul to float forever in the Astral Sea. His soul was then bound to an heirloom scepter that had been in his family for several generations, protected forever in the last chamber.
