Campaign of the Month: April 2012
Others came to see the miracle, the sight of a little girl, her eyes
wide, standing amidst the fire, the shrine burning all around her. Finally,
Vaddam-the-Orc, brought forth his amulet, and did summon Lictalon
Lictalon came directly into the fire.
“Who are you?” Lictalon asked of the girl, recognizing that she had
been entered by some god-spirit.
“I was Ss’Tol,” and my mother was Ess’Aae, and Chirrhus was
once my city, but no more. You may call me Tolmet."
— excerpt Tristine Chronicles
As the quote from the Tristine Chronicles makes clear, we know something of her origins. However, once adopted by Lictalon, she disappears from history for many years. Since Lictalon was then ruler of the realm of the demons, these days called Hades, it is likely that Tolmet spent at least part of her time in that place, and came to know many of the demons.
The legendary elven wizard Lictalon was responsible for the creation of one of the Diabolist’s 19 Power Words, as well as the Wizard spell Finger of Lictalon, and the Spell of Legend, Crimson Wall of Lictalon. In addition to those accomplishments, and many more, Lictalon was also Tolmet’s foster father, guardian and teacher. All the legends of his exploits, especially those in the Tristine Chronicles, describe him as good and noble. It is something of a mystery that the child most closely associated with him would be one of the most evil and notorious gods of the Palladium World.
