Gardain Glimmerstone is a a cleric of Dumathoin, Dwarf god of mining, underground exploration, and caretaker of the dead. Gardain began his priestly duties by working in the mines, and worked his way up to being a supervisor of mine safety. During this time, he served the dual purpose of tending to the dead who often result in mining expeditions. Gardain volunteered for the trip to Nexus because he wished to accompany the Dwarves who were assigned to explore and mine rare elements from the Island. He knew that in this strange new environment his services would be needed to help the souls of the dying find peace in the afterlife.
Our DM decided to try out the newest playtest packet, posted on 10/14/13. Previously we had been using the D&D Next packet from March. So this made it clear that I was going to need to completely redesign Gardain. Although he could easily remain a cleric of Dumathoin, he would not be able to stay a follower of The Reaper. Mainly because the newest playtest packet was focusing on the Domains of Life, Light, and War. The Domain of Death had been removed from the playtest packet.
So now Gardain will be a servant of Dumathoin, using the Domain of Light. This gives him access to some intereting fire and light spells. He will be beginning the next session (NEXUS: THE HIVE) as a 7th level Dwarf Cleric. He is still armed with the weapons and armor made of Illithid Metal, which essentially gives a Masterwork bonus of +1. He is wearing Scalemail armor, and keeps a Shield strapped to his back. He now is armed with a mace, light crossbow, and an atlatl which he uses to toss small javelins.
