Shadows of Vorucia
Tolmoric was a wizard who was born and raised in Toryth, a City state of Vorucia. He was said to be a magical prodigy, and was so gifted in natural arts of magic and spellcraft that he was chosen to be the first successor of Seuthe, the Elder… the oldest member of The Ten to hold a seat on The Council of the Ten. All ten of the wizards trained Tolmoric, readying him for the task that lay before him. But unknown to them, Tolmoric was actually not the man they believed him to be. When the time came for him to take his place in The Council of Ten, he launched an attack on Dienscraig instead, and single-handedly used all of his learned power to defeat the very wizards who had trained him. This began what was known as Tolmoric’s uprising, and ushered in the 3rd age of Vorucia, The New Age of Darkness. Tolmoric was defeated in the final invasion on Dienscraig that ended the uprising, though it is not clear exactly how he died as all records and witnesses are said to have perished in the fire that burned the city to the ground. Even the remains of Tolmoric himself were not recovered from the firestorm that consumed Dienscraig.
