Lannus is a hobgoblin Stargazer and adventurer.
Lannus was an orphan, raised by the Stargazers of Ramandu's Rock. When he was ready, Roke suggested that he leave the monastery for a while to learn more about the world. Lannus encountered a sand elf named Vantis with similar values to his own, and they decided to travel together. Lannus later joined the order of the Sacred Fists, swearing to never use weapons. Some time after Lannus and Vantis assembled the five adamantine keys and used them to enter the passages beneath Charn. They killed the rakshasa Khreeshan and Lannus released the genie Farzaan, who granted Lannus a single wish in exchange, from his imprisonment. Lannus once broke his vow never to use weapons by using a ballista to defend his monastery from hill giants, though he took a vow of silence to atone for this transgression.
Lannus is muscular and powerful, pounding enemies to pulp with his fists. He was taught the Five Point Exploding Heart Technique by Master Yado himself. He is honourable, wise and generally righteous. He has, however, been described as quick to anger and likely to bear grudges, going so far as to make lists of servants of chaos and evil he plans to punish. It might be argued that Lannus is also the Provider deity worshipped by Abigail and her followers, as he was responsible for the bread of heaven attributed to that deity and that essentially defines the religion.
Roke's Letter to LannusEdit
many of our most capable agents are currently attempting to resolve the conflict between Thrane and Tashar, but there is another issue which requires your attention. I hope you have been finding your travels worthwhile, for you are needed.
The stars have revealed to us that both the wizards of Thrane and other forces are attempting to recover an ancient set of five keys. We are not yet sure what the significance or value of these keys is, but both groups have proved that they are willing to kill in order to obtain them. We trust neither the wizards nor their enemies, and until we have learned more about this situation we cannot afford to choose a side.
However, whatever purpose the keys are intended for, it is likely (though not certain) that all five are required before any can be used. If we can claim even one of the keys and protect it, we may have time to determine what action should have been taken. We are trying are best to learn more - anything you discover could be vital.
The stars have shown that one of the keys was was stolen from the wizards and taken to Tal Dara, we know nothing beyond that. If you can, you should try to obtain this key and bring it to Ramandu's Rock. The path ahead is often unclear, but this strategy seems relatively safe.
You might also consider speaking to Brother Enhu, who lives in Tal Dara. He is one of us (though few know of his affiliation and he would like it to remain that way). He sees many things, and it may be that he can supply answers to some of your questions. Be safe, I look forward to your return.
