He was born a peasant, a simple farmer’s son. He lived an underprivileged life in a less-than-well-off village in a time when despots and tyrants ruled the land. In spite of this, through working hard and obeying his elders, he became a True Hero: defeating evil, championing the weak and downtrodden, donating wealth to the poor, and showing the Light of Truth to the Barbarian Hordes… That’s what the Zanthians say, anyway.
Every current civilization has their own story of Zanthulor, more commonly called Zan, for he is undeniably one of the most important figures of the last few centuries. All historians agree that he played some part in overthrowing The Old Gods; that he founded the Zanthian Empire, the most powerful human nation in the world, some time thereafter; and that he and his companions became vastly powerful.
