As Cronicas do Condado das Nuvens
Kell ficou surpreso um dia, ao receber uma missão da milícia. Deveria acompanhar e proteger Agnar, um aluno da igreja de Boccob numa tarefa de apanhar componentes para magia numas grutas perto da cidade.O que não previa é que, por coincidência ou ironia do destino, as cavernas eram habitadas por uma família de Owlbears, que regressava precisamente no momento em que eles estavam a recolher os componentes. Incapazes de lutar com todos eles, embrenharam-se pelas cavernas, onde andaram perdidos por alguns dias. Agnar, habituado a uma vida calma e confortável, rapidamente perdeu o alento, mas Kell perseverou, e acabaram por conseguir encontrar uma saída. Apesar de Kell por vezes zombar de Agnar chamando-o de maricas, este vê nele um grande amigo.
Mais tarde Agnar partiria para conhecer mais do mundo, mas a igreja a que pertencia fez questão de que Kell acompanhasse Agnar, e como Kell queria ir ao condado das nuvens para se candidatar a soldado no Forte da Pata do Urso aproveitou a viagem. Durante a viagem Kell preferiu tornar-se aventureiro, e fez companhia com Agnar e Surma Idriss, uma Elfa beguiler que conheceram na estrada.
Kell is a guy who comes from a small unimportant village in the Kingdom of the Star. He is the only son from a poor farmers family and has always helped them to survive. His dream, somewhat influenced by the example of his uncle, the head of the militia of his town, is to be accepted as a soldier at Fort Bear’s Paw, which is in the Cloudshire. Kell has always strived to train in the arts of combat and learned how to use different weapons and shields that existed in the militia, but was the scythe that always accompanied him in the fields that captivated him and became his weapon of choice. It was the scythe he used to fight the wolves that sometimes attacked his house and small farm. Many called him crazy to ignore the dexterity of a longwsword or the relentlessness of a morningstar, but everyone respected his perseverance and fighting ability. Dougal, a dwarf blacksmith who had been disgraced by his people for coming to the surface took Kell as if he was his son, and taught him the arts of forging and dwarven speech and writing.
Kell was surprised one day to receive a mission from the militia. He was to monitor and protect Agnar, a student from the church of Boccob to find magical components on some caves near the town.
What he didm’t expect was that, by coincidence or irony of fate, the caves were inhabited by a family of Owlbears, coming home just when they were gathering the components. Unable to fight them all, the two young men went deeper into the caves, where they walked lost for days. Agnar, used to a quiet and comfortable life, quickly lost his temper, but Kell persevered, and eventually found an exit. Although Kell sometimes mocks Agnar calling him a sissy, he sees him as a great friend.
Laterly Agnar wanted toknow more of the world, but the church he belonged insisted that Agnar was to be accompanied by Kell, and since he wanted to go to the county from the clouds to apply for soldier in Fort Bear Paw he took the opportunity. During the trip Kell chose to become an adventurer, and made a company with Agnar Surma Idriss, an Elf Beguiler they met on the road.
