Rambic was first encountered presiding over the clean-up crew of kobolds from the ambush of Duke Austin’s son. He was always seen with his pet Guard Drake, Butchizit. The heroes initially swept through the unprepared kobolds, but Rambic and Butchizit escaped and lost themselves in the woods.
Later, Rambic led the attack party who met the heroes as they were leaving the kobold stronghold with the wounded son. This battle was fierce, and the son was almost killed when he was speared by a skirmisher. The heroes rallied however, and brought down Rambic only to have Butchizit drag him off to safety.
Rambic’s last battle with the heroes occured on Ishmeer’s mountain. Near the base of the mountain, Rambic was one of the guards for the Wyrmpriests’ ritual circle devoted to Ishmeer. As the heroes assaulted the wyrmpriest, Rambic and Butchizit attacked. When Butchizit was slain, Rambic entered a blood frenzy. Though he too lost his life in this final battle, his spirit and deadly attacks empowered his allies to do the same. Though the quick work of Karak prevented any permament injuries, Rambic’s last stand was made in blood.
