Longreach Ma'kenzie is the owner of Keepers Rock adventurers outfitters shop in Fellaren-Krae. Mak can be found anywhere at any time. He is generally found at the Keepers Rock, or a nearby tavern looking for a game of some sort or sharing stories and listening to ancient tales.
Mac is very clean and impeccably dressed in the most trendy of clothes. He takes great pains to blend in with the customs of the lands he enters.
Mac is very friendly and affable. Extremely likeable and well rounded in the skills of conversations and people. A sharp businessman with a rapier wit, Mac can win over just about anyone.
Mac was orphaned in a small village in Kara-tur as a babe. His father, a travelling half-elf and mother, an adventuring human mage, had decided to see the other side of the world. Mak reckons that this makes him quarter-elf, but he has no abilities that prove this, (but he likes to point out his ears seem slightly more pointed than that of a normal human .)
They were cut down in their path by a group of assassins determined for ethnic cleansing. Mac was brought to a temple and raised by 2 men. A monk of high caste and a bushi of high cast. Both had taught Mak the glories and beliefs of their professions, but never allowed him to choose one or the other. Mak and his 2 mentors were celebrating his 14th birthday, to the best of their knowledge, and gave him his presents. One was a set of Sai, and the other was a scroll.
The scroll detailed out his history and the history of his folk. It also detailed out maps, directions, and stories of the land of Kara-tur. He was then told to find his fortune and upon the death of the two mentors, he would receive their past. That puzzled Mak, because he did not know what that meant. Mak was sent back to the land of his ancestors, and found his mothers' family. By 16 he was adventuring. With his knowledge of history and interest in it as well, he found he was able to swap tales with the best of them and so his career took off.
On one random morning, in mid-spring, Mak awoke and found a katana, wahizashi, a ring, and a tome. In the tome he found a verse marked by a ring. His mentors had passes and this was their history. Two histories bound in the tome. Mak has since always added his lifetime to the tome as well as the history of his mother.
