The Shade Isle Campaign
Fritzhelm was a 1st level human fighter and a slave-trader from Dolheim. When the party met Fritzhelm, he and his bodyguards were hobnobbing with one of the Abbey Monks, Father Boermund, who was entertaining his guests in the priests’ lounge of Shade Abbey’s Palatial Fortress (area 1A.31).
In the ensuing scrap with the adventuring company, both Fritzhelm and Boermund wound up charmed by Deliah‘s sorcery. Fritzhelm wound up staying with the party far longer than Boermund (because, a, Boermund died during the very next encounter; and, b, Fritzhelm’s intelligence was such that he could only save to end the charm spell on a weekly basis).
Fritzhelm was almost killed by a lightning bolt cast at the party by Clern; after that battle, the party wound up resting in the compost room at area 0A.23, which wound up giving the slave-trader a bad disease that the party didn’t want to bother trying to heal. And so Fritzhelm met Viktor‘s axe without ever having regained consciousness since he’d been struck by the fateful lightning bolt.
