This sections contains information about the characters played during the many Jorune adventures.
The Tales of Jorune have starred several characters, played by many different players. Characters have come and gone over the years, as Jorune takes its deadly toll on those foolhardy enough to poke their noses into places where no man or thriddle should ever go. But some characters (and players) have endured longer than others. These are referred to as the Original Heroes [OH].
But as the Original Heroes rose in experience and rank, they also became more and more involved in the greater political schemes of Jorunes various factions. In the end these characters became harder and harder to play, which led to the introduction of the Next Generation Heroes [NGH]. In interchanging adventures, the Original Heroes and the Next Generation Heroes saw Burdoth through one of its most troublesome times - the death of the Dharsage and the rise of the democratic DharKim.
Now the newest batch of heroes - the People's Heroes [PH] - take up the challenge in a harsh world which does not at all seem ready for democracy and justice.
Lastly, there are "guest" characters, controlled by players who have wished - or have been storywise forced to - have a break from their main character for some reason.
Snogard a.k.a. "The Vodra" [Original Hero]
Other aliases: Tomlin the Chef, The Doctor, Captain Tallin.
A cunning Drenn and DharCopra Caji of significant power and stunning features. Although lacking various body parts, legends hold him to be the legendary, but largely unknown Ardothian diyorda known as "The Vodra". Other rumours speculate that he in fact is a Red Cape agent. Snogard was once declared a shissic of Burdoth for his friendship with Lukazail but is now a newly appointed Drenn.
Jeremiah "Jer-Emiah" Gerrig [Original Hero]
Originally an orphaned jer of Miedrinth, who attained a reputation as a capable condrij and attaining drennship. Jeremiah has fought, tracked and cooked limilates out of most creatures of Jorune.

Jaqueline de Montluc [Original Hero]
A Ros Crendorian priestess, sworn to protect the world from the powers of the Dreamlords (lamorri). The High Priestess of Ros Crendor (Mother) has sent her out into the world to learn about the Dreamlord's growing powers outside Ros Crendor. Having faced already three Dreamlords, her knowledge is rivalling those of the Agari. Having sworn to free her realm of the Fallen Priestesses who recently usurped Ros Crendor and killed Mother, Jaqueline searches for a dangerous Dreamlord artefact
Pjire Fickie [Original Hero]
A large Ros Crendorian boccord tribesman who without really understanding why, has been appointed by Mother to be Jaqueline's protector in most foreign lands. Known for his dim-witedness, fearless (berserk) demeanor and his overindulgence in the battle limilate Aruik. Loud, strong and deadly, but calm and sweet as a pibber when under the stern gaze of Pretéss Jaqueline. For his valour, Pjire was newly appinted Drenn, little understanding the implications and responsibilities associated with this honoured title.
Khaine Johennon [Original Hero]
A well travelled and well spoken iscin from Ardoth. A coward but a Drenn. At one point he was stripped of his drennship and declared a shissic of Burdoth for his friendship with Lukazail. After some years in a dark forgotten herris, Khaine was freed and once again elevated to Drenn status. Whether he still trusts and loves Burdoth is an open question for debate, but this has not prevented him from becoming a Kimmit of Gauss.
Prince Gorramar II [Original Hero]
The spoilt and wayward Kan Lenkhan prince of Lendûra has been sent to Burdoth to learn more about the world, people and his holy task to one day lead the Kan Lenkha. He has currently teamed up with dubious, Kimmits, Drenns, Tauthers and barbarians who seem to switch between hero and shissic status more often than a pibber in a corondon nest would thist.
Tavar Brinko [Deceased Original Hero]
A brave young human raised amongst the woffen of Yobreh, Lundere. After a rough upbringing on the street, Tavar, was taken under the dubious wings of his uncle Falken Johnom and taught the hard ways of life upon the seas of Jorune. Tavar soon grew to a renowned and mighty warrior, until the day he fell fighting the awakened Dreamlord horrors of the underground.
Lukazail Laholahan [Retired Original Hero]
A huge, cruel and vengeful boccord condrij and crey-man with a terrible visage and uncertain loyalties to Burdoth's dharsage, the ramian and the shanta. This unlikely Drenn of Burdoth was once declared a shissic of Burdoth for his treason and involvement in helping rebels usurp the Rhakesht of the Drailoth colony. Despite being somehow linked to the murder of the Dharsage's son, the murder machine is once again a Drenn and loose in the world.
Mojjk "Just Mojjk" [Retired Original Hero]
A silent travelling condrij. The grim warrior is also a highly skilled tracker and can reputedly climb any surface. After having faced death, Mojjk has changed somewhat and many are frightful what kind of ties and loyalties a Dreamlord's gift of life brings.
Nod Noroc [Retired Original Hero]
An ardisian entris and Burdothian patriot, who has gotten himself mixed up with the wrong kind of roughnecks and shissics. Formerly the advisor to Burdoth's ambassadors to Japs and Khodre, Nod is now forced to rely on vulgar violence to preserve his very person (far away from civilisation). Recently elevated as a hero when returning as an emmissary of the long lost Sky people, Nod bathes in the light of fame and glory.

With the challisk, his trusted crossbow and with a handful of fate from the Coralli gods, Burt might yet avenge his butchered family and free his brothers and sister from the clutches of the vile ramian.
