Rurick’s black hair, shot with silver streaks, is a scraggily mess and most of it has been matted together to make dreds. His beard is in the same condition of disrepair. Sometimes he likes to weave small beads, bones or other things where he can throughout his beard, however, often there are leftovers from his meals along with body parts from things that he’s killed that happened to get caught in his beard. Sometimes you don’t know whether the things in his beard are last week’s dinner, kill or both. However, despite his unruly personal appearance, he keeps his armor and weapons in excellent condition. If fact, he even sleeps with his great-club cradled in his arms like a teddy bear at night (of course if you say anything about it he adamantly denies it). He is also well liked by the local tavern goers. One of his favorite things to do is to get absolutely smashed and lead the patrons in choruses of bawdy drinking songs. This pass time (along with the fact that he often drinks the worse steaming, reeking, vile rot-gut thing in the tavern and slams them back like they were water and his favorite place to hit anything is right in the belly) earned him the nickname Gutslammer. He’s also very good in a tavern brawl as he can use and throw anything as a weapon.

How Ranniun Met Him

Rurick came with the dwarves from Mithril Hall as a member of their battleragers. After a particularly bloody day on the battle field you thought that you could use several drinks. Some of your closest comrades lost their lives that day and being the army’s general the only acceptable way for you to cope with grief around your subordinates was to drink it away. As you enter the Old Skull Inn the dirtiest, most disgusting looking dwarf you’ve ever seen saunters up, hails you, offers you a drink and a place at his table which not surprisingly, he’s the only person sitting at his table. He introduces himself as Rurick Gutslammer. Having nothing else to do you decided to take him up on his offer. He orders the nastiest, strongest stuff you’ve ever tasted. You’re pretty sure dragon piss tastes better and burns less, but you drink it anyway. After several rounds of this stuff you both start to feel pretty hammered, but you know if anyone else drank this stuff, then they would probably be dead. After that you learn why people call him Gutslammer. You spend the rest of the night drinking with him, brawling in the tavern and joining him occasionally in singing. Apparently, because you fight with battleaxes and can keep up with him when you drink you really earned his respect. After that day he somehow always turned up wherever you happened to be. He claimed that it was because the really fun things to kill always went after you and he couldn’t have the only person who could drink him under the table getting his head clobbered, but from that point on wherever you went, he went (much to the dismay of many of your troops).
