A Game of Gods
Goblin Ninja 'Privateer'. Owner of the Irregulars the Finest Mercenary Organisation in Fearun.
Agon was born to one of the goblin tribes in the Orsraun Mountains to the east of Turmish. Born to a clutch of 12 Agon was left the only survivor by his 15th moon. He pursued a simple life apprenticed to the tribes bone carver where he earned his name Bonecutter. His tribe were peaceful not desiring the dangerous and foolish ways of their aggressive cousins who prayed on the simple village folk of Turmish to eat. His tribe instead kept small live stock and gathered food from the land. This all came to an end when his tribe were press ganged into the service of an orc army which had risen in the mountains 10,000 strong with the goals of bringing Turmish to its knees. He travelled with the orcs enduring their abuse and watching as his brethren were pit against each other for food or the amusement of their orcish task masters. During their first assault on a small village near the mountains Agon found shelter in a barn hoping to lie low until the orc hoard moved on thus escaping his brutal masters. His plan worked and when morning came the horde had moved on leaving Agon to flee. But as he was attempting to escape he was discovered by what few villagers had survived the attack. The villagers attacked him to enact their wrath upon him as they were beating him to death one voice rang out screaming “STOP!!!!!”. It was one of the villagers Martyn Du’Gud he saved his live and earned Agon’s eternal friendship and loyalty in that moment. Martyn took him to a safe place and asked him what was happening. Agon explained as best he could of what he had heard from the orcs drunken bragging at night of their plots.
Agon joined Martyn and his friends in their quest to reach Alaghon the capital of Turmish to warn them of the impending doom. Working with Martyn and his friends he offered his services of as their forward scout. Upon reaching Alaghon they found the city in a state of civil upheaval. With the group he helped them bring the city in to order prior to the orc horde attack by placing one of Martyn’s friends and the new ruler of Turmish. While the hoard laid siege to the city building war machines to attack Martyn, Agon and their friends made plans for repelling the assault. Agon offered to sneak into the orc hoard and sabotage as much of their siege equipment with alchemists fire. While completing his mission be was attacked while carrying the explosive alchemists fire receiving large burns. After the city was saved he left with Martyn to help him discover more about Martyn’s past. They travelled to Baldur’s Gate together with their friends where Martyn was taken by evil mages and transported to another plane where Agon could not follow. Agon stayed behind with Miri a slave girl Martyn had freed from Drow slavers and was carrying a half Drow child.
Agon lived with Miri where his life debt to Martyn passed to Miri so he helped her to raise her son whom she named Martyn after the man who had saved her life. 10 years past and Miri met a good man whom she married and raised more children ever with Agon keeping a watchful eye until the day Martyn returned from whichever plane the wizards had transported him too have discovered that he was the bastard child of Cyric the mad god. Martyn and Agon teamed up again and returned to Turmich where they became embroiled in a plot involving a war brewing between the Tayans Wizards to the east and Cormyr to the west. Thay were attempting g to purchase Turmishian mercenaries to tip the balance of the war. During unravelling the Thayan plot Agon was able to steal the funds the Thayans had sent to Turmish to purchase the mercenaries equating to 7,000,000 platinum pieces.
Together Agon and Martyn purchased the finest mercenary guild that would sell to a goblin the Irregulars. Together they forged the Irregulars in the finest fighting force in all Faerun. Martyn eventually retired from the mercenary life having grown tired of war and selling all his remaining shares in the Irregulars to Agon making him the sole owner in the company. Agon has successfully built and strengthened his power basis in Turmish through his connections in the Turmishian political system and across all Faerun via the Irregular who as the finest mercenaries in the realms acquired among all the kingdoms of Fearun.
Now using his accumulated power he is attempting to draw all free goblins to him in order to build a free goblin nation of peace and prosperity so no goblin may ever again feel the cruel yoke of orcish servitude.
