Golden Bow: Rupert was a human rogue and a ranger who specialized in hunting chromatic dragons. On his first hunt in the north, he led his party to where an adult white dragon, Frostbreath, laired.
Frostbreath had two servants attending him: Sssurrssur, an ice mephit, and Ice Fang, a half-fiend winter wolf. Rupert convinced Sssurrssur and Ice Fang to aid his party, betraying Frostbreath. The battle was short and decisive, and in the end, Frostbreath died. The ice mephit and winter wolf went off to adventure and conquest in the north. Rupert “Wyrmkiller” returned to civilized lands with much treasure from the dragon’s hoard. With this wealth, Rupert commissioned the crafting of a mighty composite longbow suitable for killing chromatic dragons. The result was Golden Bow, a +3 dragonbane holy mighty composite longbow (+4 Str bonus). In addition to the bow, Rupert also had constructed special ammunition particular to each dragon he went hunting. He became known as Rupert “Wyrmkiller” Goldenbow and made a lucrative business of slaying dragons, wisely sticking to the younger ones on solo missions, but sometimes attacking larger dragons with the help of other adventurers.
Rupert was last seen a year ago buying five +3 icy burst lawful arrows to be used against the red wyrm Quixitar. Boasting that it was money well spent and that he expected to return soon with Quixitar’s loot, the man has not been seen since.
