Three sample Rulkore adventurers are described below.
Kiruham is a Rulkore Wizard. He was born in the mountain of Rahaluk to a well-known mayor family. His parents were against adventuring, not speaking of learning arcana. One day his curiosity filled him and he left to the secret altar of Corellon, where the old priest teached him arcana. He eventually became a Wizard, and his parents sent him away to adventures, where he met an adventuring party and joined them on a quest.
Omyask is a Rulkore Rogue. He was a regular Rulkore until a clan of Gnolls attacked his village and killed everyone except him- as he hid perfectly in the shadows. He ran away into a Halfling village, where he told an old Halfling his story. The halfling was surprised from his ability to stand in the cold and shadows, so he sent him to another Halfling who helped him become a rogue. He called his Halfling friends and together they have gone on an adventure.
Palnadria is a Rulkore Ranger. She was a known soldier of a large Rulkore city. One day, she was sent into the cold forest to kill a Treant. On her way she met a bunch of Dwarves and Humans who lost their way. They were surprised by her navigation ability and asked her to join them as a ranger. Together they have beaten the Treant and have gone on many quests since, becoming the most known adventurers in their land.
