Six Pieces of the Whole
Guildfather Vishby Maclaren
Founder of the Guild of Heroes and Grand Advisor to the Kingdom
Vishby was the founder of the Guild, and is hence given the unique title of Guildfather. He has a tough core hidden beneath his kindly and ancient demeanor. As well as being the founding father of the Guild, Vishby is also an accomplished brewmaster, four-time Summerfest champion (three times in the Spell Duels, once in Mounted Combat), a renown scholar (particularly in the areas of religion and demonology), and a powerful conduit for the will of the gods (although he does not belong to one god’s clergy in particular). He stepped down as Guildmaster in the 8th year of the Fifth Age, but was forced to temporarily resume the title in the 15th year when the current Guildmaster came down with a mysterious illness. No longer able to watch idly as the Kingdom was destroyed, Vishby has left the Guild in order to serve as the key advisor to the throne.
