Artizak, The Unruly Dragon

Hailing from the sunny lands of Brol’Lokai in the far southern continent Zandoriel, Artizak is far from comfortable being in the climate of Greypeak, least of all having to bear the snows and winds of Mammoth Isle. Artizak was cast away from his home, for he was born with a curse of wild and unstable magic, and though he was considered a powerful sorcerer and sage, his magicks would often turn ill and unpredictable, responsible for many mishaps and close encounters. It was after one such mishap that caused severe injury to one of Artizak’s mentors that the Dragonkin was brought before a council of sages, and though they did not blame him personally they could not bear him as such a danger to their order or town any longer.

So he was cast out, but not without instruction. A single portal was opened for him, and it was to take him to the Land of the Wise, Tharador. There the few hidden dragons may have answers for him, for they were wiser than their southern kin and with warmer hearts. But it was said they were hunted until they all fell into hiding thousands of years prior, and only in the blackest depths of the tallest mountain peaks they now reside. It is here that Artizak was told his ancestor might still live, for few were Dragons imbued with Chaos, and none still lived in Zandoriel; all those had long perished. But by chance there was one that might live in Tharador, a great White Dragon that had been called Syphiron, with scales like diamonds and eyes of everchanging hue.

At first he simply sought to travel to the mountains and search blindly for some hidden chamber, cavern or depth that might house such creatures. But it was to no avail, and his search was in vain. Though in such a time he came to meet another from Zandoriel, a Tabaxi Snow Stalker named Curatio that had escaped bondage. Since the two could share words, they travelled together as Artizak taught Curatio what little he knew of Tharadori lore and languages, and Curatio repaid it in kind by delving through forgotten ruins and stealing scrolls and manuscripts from libraries to aid in Artizak’s search for Syphiron. The two were an unlikely pair, but worked together well. So with Curatio, through the libraries of Men, Elves, Dwarves and even forgotten Colossal ruins Artizak scoured for answers of this ancient one.

Finally answers led them north to Greypeak, and in the city of Vanlund Artizak had access to a wealth of knowledge and records of nearby Colossal ruins that held accounts of Ancient Dragons that they had hunted before their empire was reduced to dust. It was here finally that Artizak discerned the final account of a dragon that matched Syphiron’s description, seen flying northwest to a large isle off the coast. No records mention it after and in the few songs of men that involve dragons, none speak of any such creature having left the isle since. So with little else to go on, Artizak bundled up and with Curatio sailed across the strait leading to the isle, hoping that perhaps the Dragon had spent these many long years in hibernation beneath the mountains of the island.

Artizak, The Unruly Dragon

Description

Hailing from the sunny lands of Brol’Lokai in the far southern continent Zandoriel, Artizak is far from comfortable being in the climate of Greypeak, least of all having to bear the snows and winds of Mammoth Isle. Artizak was cast away from his home, for he was born with a curse of wild and unstable magic, and though he was considered a powerful sorcerer and sage, his magicks would often turn ill and unpredictable, responsible for many mishaps and close encounters.

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

The information below applies to most products on this site. Any exceptions will be noted in the individual item descriptions.

Size references (Medium, Large, Huge, etc.) are done at a 28mm(1″) scale using standard D&D rules. This means that minis will have a size commensurate with the diameter of their base:

  • Small/Tiny – 1″ diameter base or smaller (depends on the mini)
  • Medium – 1″ diameter base
  • Large – 2″ diameter base
  • Huge – 3″ diameter base
  • Gargantuan – typically uses a 4″ diameter base. If the base size is different, it will be noted in the listing.

32mm (heroic scale) miniatures may have bases that are slightly larger.

75mm (display scale) miniatures will typically have a base that is around 3″. Models in this size will have their actual dimensions in their description

  • Product images may include renders, special effects, and/or custom paint that may not be indicative of the received product. We will be adding actual photos of the printed objects as we produce them. If you would like us to send a photo of anything in our shop that doesn’t already have one prior to shipping, please let us know and we’ll be happy to oblige.
  • Unless otherwise specified, all products are 3d-printed in gray with either an ABS-like resin or PLA. This ensures the products are durable but still hold their detail
  • We still recommend handling the products with care as many have very fine, delicate features that can still be easily broken
  • Because of the production process, there may be slight variations, indentations, or rough edges that need to be cleaned up before use/painting
  • Some models require assembly, which may involve sanding, filing, and/or fillers for gaps and seams
  • Dice towers are printed hollow with 2.5mm thick walls. This is to ensure that we are able to provide them at a reasonable price but still have enough strength to hold up to use and packing/unpacking at the gaming table.
  • We perform a thorough inspection of every product before it’s shipped to ensure that it is something that we would be proud to display on our own tables.
