Lurmak of Phodrilon

Lurmak of Phodrilon

Lurmak of Phodrilon is the venerable Mage-King of the Great River Conclave, and my grandfather through my mother. Lurmak was first selected for the position seventy years ago, and then selected again every nine years for eight cycles. His age is exactly sixscore years.

Lurmak's initial selection was controversial. Like most from the citadel of Phodrilon, on the mouth of the Great River and the shores of Durmstrang, Lurmak was a strong supporter of the Kingdom of Dagroian (as a former colony, most Phodrilese have Dagroian blood, and strong ties to their ancestral homeland) - in stark contrast to most of the rest of the Great River Conclave, whose prejudices stop them from recognizing the glory of Dagroian.

Lurmak's reign has led to a long association between the Great River Conclave and Dagroian; the alliance cemented by my father's marriage to my mother, Kudra, Lurmak's youngest daughter, during the Mage-King's fourth reign. Clearly this association has been of benefit to the Great River Conclave, as the Mage-Lords have continued to select him.

Lurmak is also the largest patron of the distinguished Trasumanar University, which sponsors this compilation.

There is still much mystery surrounding the death of Lurmak's first wife, the Princess Luxonri of the small island nation of Imajibar. Many rumors still circulate concerning the nature of her unfortunate passing and relations between the Mage-King of the Great River Conclave and the Sultax of Imajibar have been less than cordial ever since.

The death of Luxonri was followed after perhaps a not quite respectable enough time by Lurmak's marriage to Winmahay, a mysterious woman of uncertain origins and Kudra's mother. Whether the Princess Luxonri was truly a victim of Gorm Fever or met her end through more insidious means may very well remain an eternal puzzle.

Though old and wealthy, the family of Lurmak is neither the oldest nor the wealthiest in the city of Phodrilon. In spite of that, the only time in the past few centuries they haven't held a seat on the city's Grand Council is when they haven't put a candidate forward. Today, the Mage-King's Great-Grandniece Giahlynn holds a seat and is said to have her eye on the Chairmanship. Rumors that Lurmak is grooming his great-grandniece to assume the office of Mage-King are inevitable since Giahlynn is herself an accomplished mage, but are completely without foundation.
