Long ago in the time of Emperor Ganak, Scholar Dag did walk with the Great Master Atrebe. After the unfortunate dusting of Atrebe did Dag begin his Study of the forbidden circles, Wizardry, Enchantry and Magic. It was soon that he took a liking to the ways of Wizardry.

His studies were kept to himself as he ignored the laws of Kotiz. He became the Blasphemere of the Brood. Most of his studies were held in private, only his Sarnak slave named Kly was allowed to assist in his blasphemous studies. His secret was soon to be revealed to all.

Dag was commissioned by Klum Machata to create a magical dagger for his personal use. It was to only be wielded by one of his ilk. Dag travelled to Kum?s outpost to begin his work.
His slave went along, pulling behind him a special forge which belonged to Haggle Baron Dalnir.

While Dag was away the Brood stumbled upon his journal and his secret obsession. The Brood sent word to Klum to have Dag deconstructed.

Dag was in the final stage of enchantments, Kum let him proceed and when the dagger was complete, Kum shackled Dag and used the dagger upon the belly of Dag, the Blasphemere.

The Dagger was found to be very effective, but lacked a few more spells and so it was returned to the Brood. It never made it back. The Crusaders sent, as well as the Sarnak slave who was pulling the Dalnir Forge, all vanished without a trace. Only the Dalnir Forge remained.

Surely the gods cursed the blade by the hands of the Blasphemere. To avoid the wrath of the gods, all of Dag?s property and creations were burned as was the memory of his blasphemous studies.
