The Runelord of Greed, Karzoug (pronounced kahr-ZOOG),[1] was the ruler of the Thassilonian realm of Shalast during the Age Before Ages.[2]

He was born as a slave in Malistroke, a city in Shalast, which was under the reign of Haphrama. At the age of 27, he left the city after presumably killing his last master. What exactly happend during these years is unknown since Karzoug erased all records about it.

After several hard years of traveling and scholarship, Karzoug became one of Runelord Haphramas new apprentices, eventually managing to kill the Runelord and casting his soul into the void between the planes.

Taking up the Burning Glaive, the Runelord of Greeds symbol of rule, Kazoug became the new Runelord of Greed at the age of 77.

The Runelords' Slumber[]

The Runelords foresaw the coming of the Starstone and knew it would mean the end of an era. They entombed themselves in hidden monuments, leaving orders to release them later so they can claim their empires once again. Karzoug therefore entombed himself in his realms hidden capital  Xin-Shalast. With none left to wake him up, the Runelord slumbered for countless ages.
