Lerep Hochstib was a half-elf and baron of the Barony of Jantalar from at least 5087 until 5103, the time of his death.


You see Baron Lerep Hochstib of Jantalar.
He appears to be a Half-Elf.
He appears to be middle-aged. He has brown eyes and an uncommonly pale complexion. He has receding, light brown hair.
He is in good shape, although green veins pulse beneath his skin, and a web of azure energy shifts constantly along the contours of his body.
He is wearing a golden baronial coronet, a crystal amulet, a fur-trimmed cobalt doeskin doublet, a gold-trimmed black belt pouch, a pair of black leather leggings, and some black high-topped boots.


Despite his own heritage, Hochstib was a staunch defender of human predominance over other races. Under his leadership, Jantalar launched a series of wars against its neighbors. The last two wars, against the Barony of Mestanir and the Barony of Vornavis were aided by the use of mandis crystals. These artifacts were provided to the Baron by Mynal'lyanna Anodheles, Empress of the Turamzzyrian Empire. The crystals nullified magical use by absorbing mana on a regional level.

His Jantalarian forces invaded and held Wehnimer's Landing in 5103 (2003) along with attacks on Icemule Trace until his forces were beaten back by combined forces of Vornavis and Hendor.

Lerep Hochstib was killed by a party of adventurers after taking hostages, including his sister Delphinuria Hochstib, on Eoantos 9, 5103. This occurred while he was attempting to finally conquer the region and town of Wehnimer's Landing in the Outlands Manor near Solhaven. Falicor had the final blow.
