From Pond to Paladin
Or
The Origins of
Froglok and Man
by
Glupurp Stoneskipper
Paladin of Marr


My noble kinsman, I bring
to you the knowledge or our
origins, as well as the
origin of Man that has been
bestowed upon me by the
scholars of the City of New
Tanaan, and those who have
visited the Halls of Honor,
home of our Lord Mithaniel
Marr. I am but a humble
Paladin of Mithaniel Marr,
born like many of our kind
in the swamps of Southern
Antonica, and deserve no
adulation for penning these



words. This work is in
honor of all Froglok,
current, past, and yet to
come.

In the early ages of
Norrath, before the arrival
of Man, the Marr Twins did
walk the face of Norrath.
The children of a God of
Power, Tarrew Marr the Water
Lord, the Marr Twins
searched amongst the mortals
of Norrath a cause to
champion and embrace with
their divinity. The Gods of
Nature puzzled over the Marr
Twins absence of a divine
purpose, and the Gods of
Influence scoffed at the
twins for seeking such a
purpose amongst the
mortals. The most malicious
of the Gods, Innoruuk, and



Cazic-Thule, sought to
corrupt the young twins to
strengthen the forces of
hatred and fear.

Innoruuk, the twisted God
of Hatred and Spite sent
his mortal followers to
Tarrews daughter, Erollisi
Marr, to tempt her and
seduce her into the
darkness. With the wisdom
imparted to the Goddess by
her father, she saw through
the Teir'Dals deceptions,
and their wickedness was
more visible to her eyes
than even their physical
forms. So it came to pass
that Erollisi journeyed to
the lands of Tunare's fair
elves, to escape the
sickening advances of the
Teir'Dal. It was in the



early kingdoms of the elves,
that Erollisi did find
warmth, peace, and beauty
in the harsh realm of the
mortals and it was there
that she embraced and was
in return embraced by a
most mortal of traits. It
was there she found love.

While Erollisi fended off
the advances of Innoruuks
mortal agents, the forces of
Cazic-Thule beset her twin
brother, Mithaniel Marr.
Serpents, phantoms, and all
manner of frightful creatures
conjured and commanded by
Cazic-Thules mortal minions
came to Mithaniel to assault
his body and mind. Mithaniel
was no mortal however, and
his will is strong, the
minions of Thule could not



instill within him the fear
of their dark lord. They did
succeed however, in luring
the brave Mithaniel to the
swamps of Norrath, the
deadly, dank, lands where
the creatures of Cazic-Thule
were the strongest and most
numerous. An army of
Trolls, Lizard Folk, and
forgotten creatures of
unspeakable horror beset
Mithaniel Marr, and so it
came to pass that he became
a captive to the minions of
the Lord of Fear.

Mithaniel, imprisoned in
magical bonds provided to
his captors by Cazic-Thule,
and tortured by relentless
monstrosities, prayed to his
father day and night for
forgiveness and salvation.



The prayers continued,
unanswered, until the brave
God, weary from torture
and weakened by the dark
magic of Cazic-Thule fell
into a deep slumber.

It was then that Terris-Thule
visited the slumbering God
to inflict his sleep with
nightmares more horrible
than the events he had
endured at the hands of
his captors during his
waking hours. However, at
the beseeching of her father,
Cazic-Thule, Terris was not
permitted to inflict such
terror onto Mithaniel Marr
until after she first
deceived him through his
dreams and stole the gift of
life from his body. So Terris
did as her father commanded



and then the slumbering
horrors began.

Its a pretty interesting read - it and from pond to paladin (vol II) both detail the creation of the froglok race. I doubt this item itself is used for anything, but the information could be used for a quest.
