The One Ring: The Darkening of Mirkwood
Brand, Son of Gorm
Glory-seeking Barding with a big sword
Once Bard slew the great wyrm Smaug, Brand’s family moved from Lake-town and established a prosperous trading business. As the oldest son, Brand was expected to take over the family business when he came of age. Old tales of hidden ruins and heroic adventures called to him, however, and like his King after his vanquishing the dreaded beast of Erebor, Brand wanted to be remembered in song with an adventure of his own. Brand set out to find hidden ruins, long lost treasure, and a place for himself in the annals of history. With his travelling companions, he hopes to do just that.
