Ranslor was the chief crafter to the High Vizjerei.
One of his creations was a set of powerful bracers, though he feared that the power contained within them would prove too much for even the most seasoned warrior. As such, he scoured waterfront taverns to find hapless individuals to test them on. After several catastrophic failures, he was so certain he had solved the problem he tried them himself. The bracers were found by his assistant in a pile of ash.
