Tales from the 13th Age
Magical Artificer and Engineer
Mysterious and eccentric, when the mage/artificer Cedryn retreated from the Archmage’s 7th Circle, he raised few eyebrows. A known recluse, in his youth he would make solo excursions to lost ruins to research and recover lost artifacts and devices. As he aged he would hire others to bring artifacts to him, though few gained his confidence enough to meet in person; more commonly he’d hire adventurers through agents of the Archmage.
Roughly a year ago, corresponding with the re-founding of the settlement of Estoll’s Stand, the mage left his tower at Horizon and moved to a small cottage outside of the rustic mining and lumber-harvesting village… why, few know.
