Almanac Format

This section lists the names of important people at any given entry. The format is as follows:

Name and title or occupation, race, gender, class/level, description, detailed abilities. Note that the level of description varies with each character, from a basic listing to an in depth entry.

We at the Mystaran Almanac endeavour to be at the forefront of innovation and make the almanac as convenient as possible. This is why I must touch upon our using the latest in the codification of people's skills. Throughout its existence the almanac series has used various such codifications, with each evolution an effort to simplify and clarify the readability of the talents possessed by the various rulers, heroes and villains that are prominent in our beloved world of Mystara, and which as such are the main contenders in the Mystaran Almanacs. Although our goal is to make things more convenient for you, the reader, we realise that it may also be confusing at times.

There are several codifications in use to represent the abilities of people. Most unfortunately, not everyone uses the same system, and old classifications are still strongly in use. Moreover, each system has many, many variants. Let's review the main variants, which at one time or another were all used in the almanac series.

The oldest known system is retroactively called "zeroeth" edition (0E), though it is also occasionally called original edition (typically by Alphatian scholars) or old edition (typically by Thyatian scholars), with the more neutral zeroeth being used by, well, the more neutral scholars. There never was a first edition (1E), or it was totally lost to time and decay; some sages speculate to its existence, but then the civilisation that would have used it would have disappeared without a trace. We also have no knowledge of prior systems, like that which much have existed at the time of fabled Blackmoor or even earlier. 0E is a nice, simple system, brought to Mystara by the Alphatians two millennia ago; it was originally used by Alphatian wizards to rank themselves without duelling. It is used throughout the Alphatian Empire and in Glantri, and is also used by many sages of the Old World and beyond. It was used in the Poor Wizard's Almanacs for the years AC 1010 and 1011.

This system has endured despite the introduction of the second edition (2E) by the Thyatians shortly after the crowning of their first emperor. At the time, the Thyatians argued that the Alphatian system was too simplistic and could not be used to fully describe every combination of talents and abilities; it is likely, though, that this was yet another weaving of theirs to put themselves apart from their former masters in their efforts to forge a Thyatian identity and to build their empire. In any case, the Thyatian sages and bureaucrats created a complicated system that was supposed to have the capacity of codifying any person's abilities, though 2E had to be tweaked a lot through the centuries to accomplish that. This system is used throughout the Thyatian Empire where it almost completely replaced 0E, and is also used by many sages in the Old World and beyond, though it never quite picked up in Alphatia where it was deemed too cumbersome. It was used in the Poor Wizard's Almanac for the year AC 1012 and in Joshuan's Almanac for the year AC 1013, as well as in the Mystaran Almanacs for the years AC 1014 to 1018 (this year).

When he ascended the throne after the death of his father, Emperor Eusebius commanded-along several other reforms in various fields such as taxes, the army, and others-the complete revision and simplification of the second edition. The result was called third edition (3E). It is a very new system that incorporates the simplicity of 0E (2E had gone far from 0E in a probably deliberate attempt to dissociate things Thyatian from things Alphatian) yet allows for flexibility and the thoroughness of 2E. Time will tell if this system keeps its promise, but already it is replacing 2E in the Thyatian Empire (and is spreading to the rest of the Old World and beyond at a slower, though probably inexorable, rate); what speaks most in favour of 3E however is the fact that it is increasingly adopted by Alphatian sages, even in the Hollow World, and the mysterious organisation known as the Lighthouse is rumoured to be considering switching to 3E as well. It was used partially (alongside 2E) in the Mystaran Almanacs for the years AC 1017 and 1018 (this year).

Thus this edition of the almanac, for the year AC 1018, uses both 2E and 3E, as we-like many-are still in the process of converting our files from 2E to 3E. We are stuck at an early stage of the process, though, even as we are preparing to publish this year's almanac, so like last year most of the capsules will be presented in the prior system, which is 2E. 2E codification can be recognised as it follows this representation:

Class/level is presented in the form of a letter (or more) followed by a number, such as F6 or T12. The number indicates level, while the letter represents the class according to the following legend (in 2E terms):

F = Fighter

M = Mage

Pa = Paladin

M(ab) = Abjurer

R = Ranger

M(co) = Conjurer

T = Thief

M(di) = Diviner

B = Bard

M(en) = Enchanter

C = Cleric

M(il) = Illusionist

Pr = Priest

M(in) = Invoker

Pr(dr) = Druid

M(ne) = Necromancer

Pr(cr) = Crusader

M(tr) = Transmuter

Pr(de) = Defender

WD = Witch-Doctor

Pr(mk) = Monk


Entries in 3E format can be recognised as they follow this representation:

Class/level is presented in the form of three letters followed by a number, such as Ftr6 or Rog12. The number indicates level, while the letters represent the class according to the following legend (in 3E terms):

Ftr = Fighter

Wiz = Wizard

Pal = Paladin

Abj = Abjurer

Rgr = Ranger

Cjr = Conjurer

Rog = Rogue

Div = Diviner

Brd = Bard

Enc = Enchanter

Bur = Buraiya

Evo = Evoker

Clr = Cleric

Ill = Illusionist

Drd = Druid

Nec = Necromancer

Mnk = Monk

Tra = Transmuter

Bbn = Barbarian

Sor = Sorcerer

Ari = Aristocrat


In addition, for ease of distinction, entries in 3E format are marked "(3E)" after the class/level.

Hara Rudraksha, Maharajah of Peshmir.

Eldest son of the Maharajah of Kadesh, Hara was groomed nearly from birth to join the ranks of the buraiyas. Keenly aware of his father's coldly pragmatic interests in his son, Hara grew to be a bitter, cruel man. Since the birth of his daughter in AC 1010, Hara's spirit has begun to lighten. Though he is still far from benevolent, his cruelty has tempered somewhat. His change of attitude, however, has put him at odds with his father and the cult of the buraiyas. Born: AC 980. Hair: Black. Height: 5' 11". Eyes: Green. Hara wears his dark hair short, and keeps a trim moustache. His right cheek bears a severe burn mark, legacy of a childhood punishment by his father.

Iarkainnun, Baron of the Estate of Malevolence in Blackheart.

In his youth the baron was a striking male specimen, and quite proud of the fact. His body was lean and toned, his features chiselled, and his shocking red hair like a royal crown upon his head. Being an ambitious man, the baron quickly made enemies, some of which even survive today. Unknown to him, one of those enemies placed a powerful curse on him. Slowly over time his body deteriorated. His skin became pallid and sickly and his body began to retain fat. Nothing he did could stop his transformation. The baron covered up his inability to rid himself of the curse by adopting habits that could account for his quickly growing girth. Watching Iarkainnun eat is enough to turn the hardiest of stomachs. Now the baron is a corpulent pustule of a human being. The only way that he can support his obese form is through magical support items that grant him the powers of levitation and limited flight.

Iarkainnun keeps a residence in Shraek, as well as on at the royal court. He enjoys the discomfort that his very presence inflicts upon others when he goes to visit. The baron does this often in order to keep up on imperial politics. Unlike many of his fellow Blackheartians he has a healthy appetite for matters of the state. While at his Estate of Malevolence the baron pursues his other favourite pastimes-tormenting innocent souls, and practicing a unique blend of necromancy and fire-related magics.

Clan Traedyis (of Shiye-Lawr) has been a thorn in the side of the baron's family for generations. He hates them with a passion, and although he has not been able to move against them openly he spends vast amounts of time plotting their destruction.

Human, male, Wiz13(3E).

Ioannes Rosattas, Lord of Verge.

Ioannes was a successful officer of the Thyatian Ministry of Trade for many years, before overzealous investigators wrongfully seized his properties and imprisoned him and members of his family. The corrupt officials were eventually caught by Emperor Eusebius, and Rosattas exonerated, but not before he managed to escape Thyatis and claim asylum in Karameikos. Since then, the disaffected Rosattas has elected to stay in the kingdom, and was recently granted the dominion of Verge. Born: AC 975. Hair: Blond, now grey. Height: 5' 3". Eyes: Green. A childhood bout of kobold flu has left Rosattas with severe arthritis.

Kabir is secretly the patron and leader of the buraiyas. Born: AC 957. Hair: Black, shaved bald. Height: 6' 1". Eyes: Grey.

Furmy, male, F17.

Furmies are bipedal, humanoid equivalent of normal ants. They normally live together in "anthills," called colonies. Furmies are asexual; the queen only lays eggs that are hatched into mature furmies according to the colony's needs (the eggs need one year before they can be hatched, but can then be stored indefinitely). The first eggs laid (generally between a couple and a half-dozen) are queen eggs, while all other eggs are normal furmies.

A furmy's eyes are multi-faceted like those of a fly, granting it 60' infravision and a 360° vision. Its chitinous carapace grants it a natural AC of 4, while its four upper limbs allows it to wield a wide variety of weapons and shields (most warrior furmies are ambidextrous and can use a great variety of tactics with perfect dexterity). Furmies are resistant to spells and poison (+1 to saves), and have a 90% resistance to charms. Furmies can communicate empathically with each other when within 60', or telepathically when in contact through their antennae. A furmy can double its movement rate by running on its six limbs.

Furmies have a tremendous sense of loyalty toward their queen and their colony, for which they will typically sacrifice their lives. This does not mean that furmies have no personality and are mechanical, instinct-driven creatures like ants; quite the contrary, just that their values would appear alien to most sentient creatures. Most furmies are of Loyal alignment, and in fact eggs are normally screened for chaotic tendencies before hatching-and eggs that would bear potentially unstable individuals are destroyed mercilessly. Each furmy is born with its future decided for it in advance; the colony provides it with all it needs, including training for its position in the society. Most furmies are simple workers (farmer, craftsman, etc.), some are warriors, while some are bred for wizardry or priesthood or other important positions; thus, furmies of all classes and levels can be encountered. A furmy's life span is about 100 years; queens generally live about 500 years.

All furmies have an instinctive fear of water, and will avoid crossing seas and oceans, or even smaller bodies if water-there is no known furmy sailors. They also fear fire. Because of their strange appearance and behaviour, furmies will generally have a hard time meshing with other races-but that is something they rarely do anyway. Due to their physiology, they cannot speak the humanoid languages without a very strong accent (generally described as chopped and clicking, but the differences are actually more fundamental). Because of their nature, furmies have a hard time grasping various concepts like money, property, poverty, trade, fame, sex, love, family, lie, treachery, treason, often causing them to make major blunders (more often than not at their own expense, but they rarely even realise it).

Furmies are not native to Mystara, but from another world where insect-like creatures are the dominant form of sentient life. One colony accidentally came to Mystara long ago, and though it is very rare, some of its members can sometimes be encountered. The exact location of the Mystaran colony is a secret no furmy will reveal to any non-furmy. The furmies worship the Immortal Furmy, allegedly the only furmy to have ever reached immortality, and the founder of their society as an orderly one. Though not native to Mystara and mostly uninvolved in its politics, Furmy grants spells to Its Mystaran priests.

Feyad'Rauth, Nephew to Baron Iarkainnun in Blackheart.

By far the most dangerous of the baron's nephews, Feyad'Rauth is a spitting image of Iarkainnun in his youth. When he was just a babe, his older brother killed his parents and brought Rauth to live with his uncle. After hearing stories about his father, Rauth is most pleased about his fate.

He is as adept with the sword as he is with spells. Charming and congenial manners hide the violent savagery that pulsates within him. Rauth has tried several times to have the baron executed, but as of yet has not succeeded. He knows that the baron knows this as well. He also knows that the baron favours him, and would be loath to dispose of him for fear of having his holdings fall into the hands of Rauth's older brother.

Dwarf, female, T4.

Glausoraiban (a.k.a. the Beast), Nephew to Baron Iarkainnun in Blackheart.

Glausoraiban is the first-born son of Baron Iarkainnun's younger half-brother. The Beast was always more like his uncle than his father, and so at a young age he apprenticed himself to the baron. Although he learned only a smattering of magic, Glausoraiban delights most in the physical torment of others. He gained his epitaph after brutally murdering his own mother and father.

The Beast spends most of his days training with the baron's guard. When he's not doing that, he is hunting some poor unfortunate slave in the wilds of Blackheart. The hunts are never fair, and most of the time the victims are rarely even old enough to hold a sword. On occasion these little hunts cross over into Traedyis land, and the Beast takes delight in wreaking as much havoc as possible.

Human or elf, male, Rgr7(3E). Originally from Arkan. Wolf-Hunter's race is a mystery. He is not quite sure himself.
