The Era of Lords
A powerful Wizard. Has proclaimed that in one year the Era of Lords will come to an end. He's very young for a wizard at the age of 41
A powerful Wizard from the 101 kingdoms. He proclaims that if the evil inside of that keep is not destroyed that the evil will seep across the land and the age of Lords will come to an end. He is distraught with the quality of the adventurers and is scared as he cannot leave the village or send a message outside the village. He is ashamed that he himself cannot enter the castle as his mind is so bright and filled with knowledge that the evil spirits inside of the keep are too much for his elven magical aura. He is 6"3 and is a skinny man. He is blind in both eyes but still somehow is able to see normally.
