About the Master
Skullsplitter" Thyornsson is a powerful Norse berserker. His coarse
appearance and exaggerated build makes him seem unapproachable, but
beneath the gruff exterior is a warrior full of passion and honor. For
his great size, he moves with graceful fluidity and deliberate care. He
teaches the control of a true warrior and the ability to harness and
channel the rage within every warrior. He is the master of swords at
the Academy and instructs all who seek to master the melee of battle.
His own blood-lust is unimaginable when speaking with the calm Norse
warrior, but to see him in his fury is to know the unquenchable thirst
for battle coursing through him. His loyalty to the Academy and in
particular the Bard is unbelievably strong, an unshakable faith in
The Berserk are
not simply Norse warriors awaiting a need for their warrior-fury. The
Celtic and Paranese humans are welcome, as well as half-breeds and
other friendly races. All may learn the way of the sword or the skills
required to be a true berserker. The only requirements are the ability
to lift a sword and an interest in face to face combat. All who apply
are tested in these two categories and must meet the instructor.
The warriors of the Berserk are a tightly knit group, with only one
true common element: a thirst for battle. They have trained and fought
together, which has united them as only fighting back to back can do.
They trust each other with more than their lives. A closer brotherhood
of warriors does not exist.
