Welcome to Castle Darkhammer


By the Darkhammer we rule

By the Darkhammer we rule

By the Axe of might

There will blood tonight, blood tonight

from Blood Tonight, battle anthem of the Warriors of Gar

Located to the west of the kingdom of Lexgar and to the North of the kingdom of Bloodaxe, Castle Darkhammer is located in possibly the most beautiful scenery in all of Gar.  Meadows, deep valleys and thick forests make up the Kingdom of Darkhammer.  Castle Darkhammer itself is an impressive fortification only second on the planet to Castle Lexgar.  The towns and villages of Darkhammer are some of the most prosperous on the planet, with King Ivan Darkhammer welcoming off-world trade.


Notable locations in the Kingdom of Darkhammer:

Darkhammer Valley

The location of Castle Darkhammer.  The castle is set at the end of the valley alongside the Great Gar River that winds across the continent.  


Located at the end of Darkhammer Valley is Hammersville.  Like many medieval scenes Hammersville is a collection of huts huddled around the 'mother' castle.  Hammersville ha s a thriving trade from off-world travelers as well as trade from other Kingdoms.  Hammersville also boasts a limited facility docking field.

Anyar City

A recent addition to the face of Gar is Anyar City.  Named after the Princess Anyar Darkhammer Anyar City is on the road between Castle Darkhammer and Hammer Haven.  Anyar City gets most of its trade from travellers between Hammer Haven and Castle Darkhammer.  The people here are friendly, though rumours about an underground magicians guild have not yet be proved.

Hammer Haven - Shadow Port

Hammers Haven is a port town to the northwest of Castle Darkhammer and Anyar City.  Sailing ships, grand galleons sail the Gar seas trading with other port towns to the north, and across the sea to the Amazon lands and other smaller Kingdoms.  Hammer Haven also holds a secret, it is a secret Shadow Port.  Hidden by the nearby cliffs is a small landing facility.  Hammer Haven is often used by smugglers as either a first stop entering the Blood Drift Sector, or a last point of call before heading out of the sector and into the Blood Drift.  Prices in Hammer Haven are steep, especially for items of high tech or of a medical nature.  Medpacs often sell for an equivalent of 2000 credits.

Capsule: Ivan Darkhammer couldn't wait to leave his barbaric homeworld behind.  Fed up with the death and mayhem he wanted the peace and serenity of the galaxy.  Instead he encountered the Empire.  Ivan soon found himself in the with Rebel Alliance and is now one of their top, and Most Wanted, agents.  Then word from home came that his mother and father had died in a fire.  Ivan returned home to mourn only to find that the entire line of Darkhammer had come to an end, nearly.  Ivan was now heir to the throne of Darkhammer.  Ivan took the throne only to come immediately into conflict with the ambitious and bloodthirsty King Bloodaxe.  Ivan favors melee weapons and is especially proficient with a battle-axe, although he keeps a wrist blaster handy at all times.

Recent Events:

The Darkhammer/Bloodaxe feud has reached new heights recently, bringing the two kingdoms into bloody conflict.  The irony of the situation was that in serving with the Rebel Alliance Ivan Darkhammer had become close with a fellow rebel agent named Tetris.  Returning home Ivan discover that this Tetris was none other that Tetris Bloodaxe, daughter of King Bloodaxe, his sworn enemy.  Fortunately Tetris had no love for her father and sided with Darkhammer.  Then the Empire came.  Castle Darkhammer was no more.  Destroying in an Imperial ground assault by the new new King of Bloodaxe, Grand Moff Ravikk.

Ivan was able to prevent Bloodaxe taking command of the legendary Den-Gar commando's, and then sought out the mystical Dark Hammer.  Unknown to Ivan the Dark Hammer was a trap set by the Gar God of War.  Ivan was snared, and in a moment of rage the Dark Side swept Ivan away.

Ivan would become known as The Darkhammer, a feared warrior of old.  The Dark Side had swept him back 4000 years.  It took 7 Jedi Masters to defeat The Darkhammer, and place him in a stasis chamber on their Jedi world of Aldis.  In the years that followed the Jedi on Aldis would be wiped out and the existence of The Darkhammer forgotten.

Forward 4000 years from his blood onslaught against the Jedi the Darkhammer is awoken by the mysterious Governor Chavekk of Aldis, and reunited with the Darkhammer.  The Dark Side this time fails to take hold of Ivan and the The Darkhammer is no more, Ivan is back.

Ivan returns to Gar, and with an alliance with King Dargrim Lexgar, and with Tetris Bloodaxe on his side the Imperial armies of Bloodaxe are defeated and Ivan Darkhammer once again sits upon a throne of Gar.

Loyalty Ivan Darkhammer, Rebel Alliance
Quote "I look good, don't I?  Good enough to die for?

"I'm Anyar Darkhammer, Ivan's younger sister.  I stand by my brother, and swear to take my revenge against Bloodaxe who I know murdered my family."

Title Knight of the Realm
Loyalty Ivan Darkhammer, Rebel Alliance
Quote "As far as I know I'm already dead, which means, I'll be waiting for your sorry ass in the afterlife!"

"So it comes to this.  You want to know about the Sithspawn?  Well bad luck, 'cause there's nothing to tell.  All I know is that I first remember is being on this planet with desires to kill.  With Darkhammer's help I broke the grip of the Dark Side and have pledged my loyalty to him.  I don't know who I am or where I came from.  To be fair, I don't give a damn!  I don't look for fights anymore, but you back me into a corner and I'll be your worst frellin' nightmare!"

Capsule:  One question often raised about the Sithspawn is, is he dead or alive?  The answer is that he is alive, but he is extremely hard to kill.  Although he has no apparent knowledge of the force, and is in fact not force sensitive, his symbiotic suit certainly has some Dark Side properties.

The Sithspawn was 'found' roaming Gar by Ivan Darkhammer.  Despite his name Sithspawn is not an agent of the Dark Side.  He has served in special units for the Rebel Alliance, and serves as First Knight for King Ivan Darkhammer. 




Trauma, a.k.a. 

Gallandro (player-character)

Title Man-At-Arms
Loyalty Ivan Darkhammer, Rebel Alliance
Quote "Go ahead punk..."

"Do you have a problem with the fastest gunslinger in the galaxy?  If so, go for your blaster.  But make sure you've made arrangements for your burial first."

Equipment: Thunderer Pistol, quick-draw holster

Capsule:  Gallandro, I mean Trauma (but he goes by the name Gallandro), okay this is not so confusing.  Trauma, the real Trauma (although this is the real Trauma) was traveling with Prism, the guy with the TARDIS Now one thing led to another and time lines were changed, but the alternate Trauma was inside the TARDIS and safe from the changing time-lines.  So as not to cause confusion between the two Trauma's he changed his appearance and name.  So now he goes by the name Gallandro and models himself after the gunslinger of old, only to confuse people further.

As well as being one of the best gunslingers in the galaxy, nearly matching the real Gallandro, Gallandro serves as Man-At-Arms to Ivan Darkhammer and an agent for the Rebel Alliance.  Gallandro has been involved in many high profile attacks against the Empire, but amazingly he is not on their most wanted list.  Probably because most witness's only take in seeing Ivan Darkhammer.  That Darkhammer always takes all the glory!
