Bladescream was the founder of Obsidian Bay's Blackrazor Guild and the one-time wielder of the legendary blade Blackrazor.


Brant Bladescream was a man who knew what he wanted. Fame. Glory. Riches. These things teased at his mind like a siren's call. He gathered together a number of like-minded individuals, drawn by promises of power and his vision of slain monsters and looted treasures. Truly, he was a leader among men, able to rally even the most skeptical individuals to his cause.

If only he'd had the brains to back up his plans.

Bladescream was slightly below average in intelligence and wisdom; this manifested less as actual stupidity, and more as an irrational belief that he could pull of the craziest, most unrealistic plans. The fact that he'd been lucky enough to actually accomplish a few only encouraged him.

Combined with his natural and magically augmented charisma, this allowed him to gather together team after team of adventurers. Some were just as wild-eyed, intellectually challenged, and shortsighted as Bladescream, but even otherwise bright, rational individuals find themselves drawn into the man's wild-eyed schemes. About half of them would die on any given expedition, but those who survive tend to return with treasures every bit as impressive as what Bladescream promised.

He successfully recovered the sword Blackrazor from White Plume Mountain, and used the fame and fortune he accrued there to found Obsidian Bay's Blackrazor Guild. He later lost the blade leading a foolhardy assault on the lair of the ancient dragon Woryx (he escaped, but the dragon slew every Blackrazor Guild member who accompanied him). He blew through a horde's worth of treasure and nearly ran the guild into the ground before selling off majority shares in it to refuge-adventurers fleeing the Great Kingdom's Fall.


He was later kidnapped and killed by the Cult of Death Undying within the Obsidian Maze.
