Current Description:

Written by Cordir:
With arms and legs nearly as thick as tree trunks, the dwarf before you exudes a poised strength. His grip upon his weapons is sure, practiced, that of someone who has dedicated his life to the deadly dance of battle. Fine armor of Delving-make - scarred here and there with the marks of intense combat, yet carefully maintained - gleams beneath a deep blue surcoat emblazoned with a snarling, rampant tiger bringing down unseen prey. His ice-blue eyes drill deep into your own, like twin bolts lightning from a cool summer night's storm. They seem to notice everything: about you, your possible intentions, and his surroundings down to the smallest detail. "Truth," he murmurs is a deep, almost gravelly voice, "is the candle. Action itself is the flame that lights the way. I am Wistom, proud servant of Lord Tripper, Truthsayer and Councilor of the Tigers. I am friend to those who are innocent or honorable, eternal foe to those who lie." He bows, eyes staying on you without interruption, waiting for your response.

Character History:



a shiny brass whistle on a sky blue cord

(written by Cordir): Long Description: Dangling from a sky blue cord, this brass whistle would have a piercing tone.

Look Whistle

This brass whistle would have a very loud tone - loud enough to be
heard over the noise of a train chugging along.  Along the middle
of the barrel of the whistle, an engraving has been made:

.                     **********************
.                     *  CHOO CHOO TIGER!  *

Player Provided Information:

Wistom was the guy who could be counted on, if you needed to call on him. He would go anywhere with you: Demon Realm, wherever, it didn't matter. His response would be "Awesome! Let's go!" He was a devoted, honorable guy and would help you - anyone - in any way he could.
Wistom's player and I go way back to the very late 90's. We were good friends back in Solanthas's following as other incarnations. He was one of the craziest guys I ran around with back then, and like Maimer said he was always game for any adventure even if it meant certain death. When I first met him he was a terrible PKer and often died, but I was always impressed with his attitude and lack of attachment to equipment. Most of us were not so blessed with that quality. With time he gained some PK experience and eventually by the time he created Wistom he was landing some pretty good kills and became rather powerful. He was well known as the CHOO CHOO Tiger, and rightfully so, because every time he came around he'd gossip "CHOO CHOO!". Although we have not played in the same following for quite a while, I still consider him a friend and he is on a short list of people I will not PK to this day. CHOO CHOO!
