Tales of Aelyndia
Dalek Quicksilver was a masterful halfling thief and a vital member of the legendary party known as the Six which aided The Guardians during The Shadow War. Quicksilver’s party was responsible for the defeat of the powerful madman known as Xarax near the end of these conflicts. The halfling was entrusted with the protection of a relic of some significance, though the exact nature of the relic (either an artifact crafted to seal the dark wizard Alashar in The Void Between Worlds or a shard of the evil blade known as Maelin’s Fury) is as yet unknown.
After the Six disbanded in the wake of the Shadow War, Quicksilver continued to travel Aelyndia in search of adventure. Tales of his daring exploits are now recounted by every child of Tylandale, and his reputation among the halflings may exceed that of even the legendary Talen Longfoot. Eventually, Quicksilver did return to his homeland, and settled into the region of Tylandale known as the West Meadows, where he resided for approximately one year. During this time, he recounted his life’s adventures, almost certainly dripping with hyperbole, in a personal diary. This volume can still be found in Tylandale’s principal library. After accomplishing this task, Quicksilver again departed his home, never to be seen again. It is believed by some who have explored his writings that his destination was the frozen northern shores of Aelyndia, the one region that his travels had never taken him. The status of the relic which was entrusted to Quicksilver remains a mystery.
