The party knew very little about Zeddishous (pronounced Zed-ish-us); Zedd for short. They judged him solely on the basis of a short conversation. Accepting him into the group on trust alone, the party showed a great willingness to accept the unknown. To embrace the uncertain, to tempt fate and dare the odds.
Zedd is an Aasimar. A celestial with the blood of a deity in his ancestry. Zedd enjoys the outdoors immensely and respects all of nature's creatures. Zedd is also known to boast of his excellence at archery and tracking.
Unfortunately, Zedd died while adventuring within the taint infested Firestorm Peak. After defeating the evil wizards in a final confrontation, Zedd died under the magical onslaught of a deadly dharculus while departing the mountain.
Slain on 28 Aug, 1003, Zeddishous's body occupied a shelve in the party's portable hole until 17 Sep, 1003. After cleansing a tainted, cursed and haunted shrine, the party was rewarded with the services of a group of priests. They raised Zeddishous from the dead, and reincarnated Grenco. Back in the land of the living, the party has little idea what Zedd's plans are now that he's returned to his companions. With a hard fought battle behind them, perhaps he will seek rest and solace in some remote woods. On the other hand, maybe he'll seek retribution for those responsible for Fang's death!?
More recently. After returning from Firestorm Peak, Zedd and Grenco are currently in the process of recruiting new members for the S.C.R.E.W.O.F.F.S. As soon as a full party roster is filled out, and they've completed some training the S.C.R.E.W.O.F.F.S. (now an NPC adventuring group) will set fort on new adventures.
After the loss of Fang, Flash took to Zeddishous. Rescued from exotic pet peddlers by Grenco, Flash was a Blink Dog. This intelligent creature formed a friendship with the party. After Zedd lost Fang, Flash came to realize that Zedd was a friend of the four legged. Zedd's compassion for Fang, and grief over his parting, proved to Flash that Zedd was a worthy companion. Flash took a liking to Zedd, and even fought to defend him from enemies. Unfortunately, Flash was slain by a powerful foe on the 24th of Augot, 1003. Due to the extremely dangerous nature of the situation, the party was forced to flee, leaving Flash bleeding to death on the field of battle.
Note: Micheal had to leave our campaign in Oct of 2007 and Mark Gipe ran Zeddishous until he died fighting the tainted denizens of Firestorm Peak. Resurrected on the 17th of Septev. Mark resumes playing Zedd (for now).
