The Rise and Fall of Glamorfell
King Castruccio Irovetti
Strange meld of man, machine and magic
King Irovetti is a hulking man who seems to be melded completely with some king of machine. Behind the iron mask that composes his face, two human eyes can be seen, but the rest of his humanity remains hidden. He travels at all times with a voluminous green cape that billows and snaps dramatically with his every pounding, metallic step.
Little is known of King Irovetti beside that he is a petty tyrant who fancies himself a god. It seems the River Kingdoms attract these sorts of deluded megalomaniacs, similar to the nearby Kingdom of Razmir. The city of Pitax is filled with trashy art and bad sculpture, created by the masses of enslaved artists and poets that Irovetti maintains to massage his enormous ego. His country suffers under his rule, as his arrogant reign has turned the nearby countries of Numeria and Brevoy against him, alienating him from potential sources of trade.
Riding a monstrous clockwork dragon and accompanied by two warriors composed of gears and machine parts, King Irovetti arrived in Restov to bear a missive: That the attempts to subdue his kingdom by sending fleas to gnaw at its edges would have a drastic price. With this proclamation, he threw the head of Adam Isenbard, Expedition Leader of the Iron Wraiths, onto the counsel room table.
