Here the Mountains Whisper
Kharn the Red
An ancient red dragon, Kharn the Red has lived within the Land of the Daals for as long as the Daals themselves can remember. He makes his home high in the Thunder Peaks and does not come out very often. Though certainly capable of flooding the region with a fire that would seer through wood and stone and flesh alike, he has chosen instead to be a lofty observer, having no hand in the Battle of Whiskers or the Daalish Spring until his murder of King Marius.
As part of the annual Celebrations of Marius and his Kin, adventurers the world over have come to Daal’Dorash to try their hand at defeating Kharn the Red and retrieving that which he stole, the Gift of the Daals. However, more recent years has seen the celebrations turn towards more friendly sporting events and the number of eager potential dragon-slayers has dwindled, either due to second thoughts or a significant number of them having been turned to cinder.
