Thuria and Beyond
Outlaw Nemedian baron
Torkal Moh is a Nemedian baron banished from his kingdom for a series of grievous offences including the more-or-less open worship of demons and strange gods. Such was his wealth and power that he was able to retain a large force of fighting man and a large retinue of followers in exile. His stronghold, Ravengard, is in the western part of the Borderlands, just south of the Cimmerian River.
The insane baron has tamed a huge Purple Worm, which he workshops as a deity (which he has named Pthassiass, after the noise it makes) and keeps supplied with meat – cattle, horses, even human captives.
