Mud Contributions:

Soloban was granted Site Administrator privileges on the Wiki by Tynian due in part to his large number of contributions to the wiki. Soloban has mapped a large number of areas in the realm and has written one area, The Vineyard.

Current Description:

The man before you displays almost a cocky-over confidence perfected by years of troublemaking in his youth. A long scar crosses his cheek, a constant reminder of a City Guard enraged by an act of petty vandalism by a child. Vowing to one day repay this act of cruelty, he spent hour after hour of his teen years perfecting his physique, unloading casks of ale and mead at the Mage's bar. Tattoos of a nude elf princess adorn each forearm and account for his lifetime ban from Loth-Llorien. His hair, what is left of, is closely cropped. His voice is gravelly and baritone from the pipe he carries in his pocket. Despite his troubled youth, he vowed to follow the path of good in exchange for a prayer answered by Boromir. The Lord of the Nexus granted him a miraculous escape from a dark prison cell in the depths of Kharad-Delving, after Soloban was caught attempting to desecrate the fountain in the chapel on drunken dare. Old faded scars on his wrists shaped like shackles show at the edges of his armor, and his fingertips are stained with ink from the maps that are his passion. His quest to explore and document the world has often been perilous, but he remains undeterred.

Character History:


  • Was self-styled as Amateur Cartographer until Tynian paid him 1000gp as an advance payment for his next map

Player Provided Information:


Soloban's mapping effort has been a huge factor in my ability to level a bard. Not only has he mapped a large number of zones, but his maps are clear and easy to read. As I've tried my hand at mapping, I have found it is not so easy to make such legible maps. Thank you, Soloban!

a golden compass upon a stout gold chain

Look Compass:

Since its invention, few objects have been more prized by navigators, adventurers, and travelers, than the compass. This compass, made of solid gold, is engraved upon its surface with the same word, in each of the myriad tongues of the world: HOME.

Examine Compass: A stout gold chain bears upon it a golden compass. You see the following faint symbols: [m|AC 0 hth:17 3#]

Look Chain: The chain that bears the compass is wrought of gold as well. Each link is a perfect triangle.

a battered wood and brass sextant

look sextant: This sextant is made of wood and brass. Scratches mar its surface in regular intervals. Here, the claw-marks of a silver lion. Elsewhere, acid scars left by the copper dragon. Water-stains, bite marks: all manner of damage endured. Yet like the endless, persistant ocean tides, the bearer of this sextant has continued on, unabated in their goal: To see - and map - the known world. To this end, he has navigated the seas, forded rivers, climbed mountains, all a part of his endless thirst for knowledge.

look brass: The brass of this sextant is polished and bright, despite the gouges and acid burns that mark it here and there.

look wood: The wood of this sextant is that of the Bohdi tree, the ancient symbol of Eastern philosophy and wisdom. Despite the many marks and scars that mar the surface, the wood has been carefully cleaned and oiled, to protect it from the elements.

exa sextant: The sextant is the first really accurate navigational tool ever invented.

a pair of black, chitinous gauntlets

look gauntlets Someone has used the chitinous body of a spider to make these gauntlets.

a pair of shoes with gum stuck to the soles

look shoes A huge, dirty wad of used bubblegum is stuck to the soles of these shoes. Ewww!
