Thorkomph Dipnokk was one of the original settlers of Hearth, then eventually Acheron. He was a strong voice in the village since its founding. Strong of arm and of character, Dipnokk was overjoyed when Tassan Ardec proposed his plan to hold an election for the governor of their people. Believing he was the obvious choice, Thorkomph immediately began to get his affairs in order to occupy his new station in life. He started to write decrees, toy with ideas for new laws, and even started shopping for exotic fabrics from which to fashion his regal attire.
When the results of the election were announced to be a unanimous vote for Ardec, Dipnokk was outraged at the injustice done to him by what he professed was a rigged election. Once he realized that no one would listen to his claims of conspiracy, he became a hermit, living on the outskirts of the kingdom. His solitude gave him ample time to train himself and form a plan to win “his” throne.
