Current Description:

Before you stands a Dwarf. Like most dwarves, his facial features are nearly hidden by the thickness of his beard which falls in a black cascade nearly to the floor. You can still make out the twinkling, friendly blue eyes which quietly assess you, and the quick grin that curves his lips.
His garb is not flashy or overly decorated; a white surcoat over the armor of a priest and warrior, white tunic and trews. The mail is well cared for, tended with pride, for a warrior knows well how to treat the tools of his trade. A thick, broad belt binds his waist, and from it hang a number of pouches and vials, thick with herbs. At those, you blink. He's obviously not dressed as a man of the woods; not in that bright white and metal armor.
Scanning him more closely, you note the oval pin of tigers-eye worn by those who serve Tripper. A friend to those who are good and innocent. Then, he nods and taps his weapon. "A friend in need, or a guard in dark time. Just call."
Tiax is in perfect health.

Character History:

Tiax was born a dwarf in the town of Lineaoth Valley. He learned the ways of a cleric and a warrior. At a young age Tiax decided to join the Tigers, who were led by Lord Tripper.

One day, Tiax meditated at the Cleric guild. As Tiax got older, he found himself meditating in the Cleric's Guild more often than before. During his meditation he got a vision. He was instructed to find his path, towards the Light. When he emerged from his meditation, he saw the Sun. He immediately understood that was the way he should choose. Through meditation and focus, Tiax gained the ability to talk with the gods, and they agreed that he would make a good deity. Tiax was offered a place within the hierarchy of Gods. Now Tiax serves the Sun as leader of her Defenders. He also serves the realm, by offering his army's services to anyone in need.


  • Tiax received mention in the 2002 BlissPoll for Funniest Mortal.
  • Tiax was personally thanked in Gytar's retirement note.

[ 14] Tiax: Retirement
Thu Mar 11 15:22:04 2004
To: All
Greetings all,
It's time for me to go, I had a great time and denying that would be a lie. However the time came for me to look at my goals and position, and I realized I can't make these goals anymore. Therefor it's time to leave.
I bid you all farewell, and hope you'll have loads of fun. I don't want to thank anyone specifically, cause every player makes this mud fun and in some way or another, we'd prolly met in game and either exchanged smiles or punches :)
Keep it challenging, and see you around,
*signed with a slowly fading T*
PS: I left a personal message for my followers on the forums, go read it!
PPS: For all those who asked already: I am not taking with me the area I was building, it's finished and will go in when Tokugawa wants to (so ask him:P)
