The Warmaster and Dragonborn Gunleiv

The Warmaster and Dragonborn Gunleiv

In the shadow-marred valleys of Garmheld,
the legend of Gunleiv,
the Dragonborn Warmaster,
haunted every whispering wind and echoed in the aged stones of the ancient citadels.
Gunleiv was not born of ordinary blood;
his lineage was infused with the essence of dragons,
giving him scales that shimmered like midnight steel beneath his battle-worn skin and eyes that burned with a feral,
crimson fire.


As a commander of the Ironscale Legion,

Gunleiv’s presence on the battlefield was both a herald of doom and a beacon of hope. His prowess was sung in songs that chilled the soul; he was both a saviour and a specter, wielding a blade that glimmered with a sentient darkness, named Ebonmaw. It was rumored among his foes that to look upon Gunleiv in the throes of war was to gaze into the abyss itself.

At an epoch when the world was bending beneath the weight of a menacing force,

an ancient darkness that crawled its way from the forgotten fissures beneath the earth—the dread Cult of Thamor—Gunleiv faced his fate not as a man, nor as a beast, but as a myth.



an ancient deity banished by cosmic entities fearing its insatiable hunger for chaos, was unwittingly awakened by the greed of men who sought to harness its forgotten powers. This deity was not bound by the mortal coil but was an amorphous shadow, spreading doom like a plague, twisting the minds of men, and summoning nightmarish creatures from the voids between the worlds.

As the lands of Garmheld fell into despair,

sanctuaries desecrated and the skies choked with a perpetual eclipse, Gunleiv knew that the daunting saga of his life was guiding him to confront Thamor. The Ironscale Legion, loyal to their last breath, stood at the precipice of annihilation with their Warmaster leading the forlorn charge.

On the Night of Falling Stars,

under a sky torn asunder by celestial turmoil, Gunleiv stood at the peak of Mount Vorga—the bridge between the earthly realms and the lurking abysses of forgotten cosmos. The air was thick with a palpable dread, charged with the whispers of Thamor’s legion, entities not of flesh but of shadows and fears.

With Ebonmaw in hand,

shimmering with an eldritch light, Gunleiv chanted the ancient Draconic rites, his voice melding with the tempest, summoning the ancestral power of the dragons. The ground trembled beneath him as if the spirits of the earth contested the heavens’ wrath. Around him, specters emerged, twisted amalgamations of man and beast, their forms ephemeral yet terrifyingly real.


The battle was a maelstrom of despair and defiance.

Each slash of Ebonmaw banished a shadow to oblivion, but with every fallen foe, Thamor’s essence weaved tighter around Gunleiv’s soul, striving to corrupt his indomitable spirit. The air was filled with a cacophony of clashing steel and the haunting wails of the void’s minions.

In the heart of chaos,

Gunleiv found himself face-to-face with the core of Thamor—a swirling vortex of eternal darkness, an eye that reflected nothingness.

Steeling himself against the suffocating fear,

Gunleiv plunged Ebonmaw into the abyssal eye,

the sword’s dark energy merging with the corrupt essence of Thamor.

The explosion of light and shadow that followed was blinding.

When the world settled,

Gunleiv stood alone,

the mountain now surrounded by a serene silence,

Ebonmaw at his side,

forever bound with the darkness it had consumed.



Though victorious,
the battle scarred him,
leaving his dragon-essence intertwined with the dark remnants of Thamor.
Gunleiv returned to his people,
hailed as a hero yet feared as a reminder of the abyss that lingered,
just beyond the realm of sight.


Whispers among the old and wise spoke of Gunleiv’s eyes—how they retained a glint not of this world,
a constant reminder that the line between savior and destroyer is as fine as the edge of a blade,
and even a Warmaster must tread it with wary steps.
