I was reading about Murlynd the hero deity (makes it sound like he was a Paladin), but in the Expedition book his younger alternate self is a Wizard. What was he back in the 1e days, anybody know?
|#2extempusSep 04, 2007 21:05:35||In the World of Greyhawk boxed set's Glossography (p. 35), Murlynd is listed as being a 12th level paladin, 12th level magic-user and 12th level illusionist.|
|#3thanaelSep 05, 2007 6:53:46||I also stumbled over that part in EttRoG and also over the anti-Kelanen and anti-Zagyg.|
As for Murlynd in 1E:
In 1e, Murlynd was a Paladin 12/Magic-user 12/Illusionist 12, by the way. In 3e I'd probably make him a paladin/artificer/archmage to reflect his affinity toward technological devices (not just his guns) and his experimental approach toward magic in general - archmage let's him create lots of interesting spellhacks.
from Mirtek's excellent Kelanen, the Prince of Swords on dicefreaks.
I quite like Mirtek's take on Murlynd the White Paladin except that he needs to be given a Divine Rank of 1 as he's definately ascended from Quasideity to Hero deity now. The thread also has a thorough dicussion of Murlynd in older editions as well as some links to interesting fiction featuring Murlynd. (Definately check out the fiction!)
-Dragon 71 (March 1983) lists him as a Lawful (good) Paladin/Magic User/Illusionist, 12th level in each
from this thread about Murlynd on canonfire, discussing Murlynd's history.

Gygax, Gary. "Greyhawk's World: Quasi-deities." Dragon #71 (TSR, 1983).
|#6grodogSep 08, 2007 23:20:22||The version in Dragon aligns generally to the one published in the Glassography, but the version in EX2 differs (MU 18) and is closer to the original portrayal of Don Kaye's PC in the original GH campaign (he was a wizard).|
