A famed Wergol scholar and Pedagogue, Gotun brought the teachings of Wergol magic to many Elfish villages during his expeditions to the mainland, earning him the respect of the Ourkulin, the Wergol house of government and predecessor to the Dwervoth Urkanil. In his final expedition, Gotun ventured northward to bring magic to the newly-discovered Qarqotep. Unknown to him, the Qarqotep held an extraordinary predisposition towards the use of magic, and the many disparate hives of the desert soon unified under the banner of the Qarqol.
