History

Leomund, an immigrant from the East, was already ancient when he joined the Circle of Eight in approximately 571 CY. He retired from the Circle in 576 CY, citing other compelling uses of his time. He was replaced by Otiluke later that year and has been seldom heard from since, and not at all in recent years.

  • Leomund's Hidden Lodge
  • Leomund's Lamentable Belaborment
  • Leomund's Secret Chest
  • Leomund's Secure Shelter
  • Leomund's Tiny Hut

  • Architecture (with Mordenkainen)
  • Forgotten Arts of Oratory Magnetism
  • Thesis on the Planes of Anti-Matter

Magic items

Leomund is the creator of Leomund's plate and cup. Made of engraved silver, gold, or platinum, these finely crafted dishes produce delicious meals and alcoholic drinks on command, at variable frequencies per day depending on the nature of the item. After use, they must be cleaned with sweet or holy water once a week or permanently stop functioning.

Creative origins

Leomund was the player character of Len Lakofka, who has stated vehemently that his character was never a member of the Circle of Eight. Instead, in the Oerth Journal #10, he suggested that the Circle member was an impostor whose true name was "Guy Gas."

The class levels, birth date, and alignment attributed to him above come from Lakofka's Oerth Journal article, and must be considered apocryphal.
