1994 - Connor is caught in a vortex of time and transported into the demision known as Krynn,
During the years that followed Connor is caught up in a war between the very races of the strange land he has fallen into, Things he was sure that were fantasy are now painfully real and now the sword is a common weapon again. Connor fell into a a gathering of people called the Rangers of Krynn, and learned the woodcraft from some such as Tanis Half-Elfin and Riverwind the Plainsman and the Ranger Jack Derry, He was also exposed to many of the different orders upon Krynn having suffered thru a cataclysm and fought in the first dark against the Dark Queen. The world of Krynn was magically sundered and Connor was again tossed like flotsam thru time and space.
He then appeaerd in the Windy Cliffs of Neverwinter in the land of the forgotten realms, He adventured there for many days before meeting a Lord of Krynn byt the name of Arakin, This knight schooled Connor in the virtues of being a LOK. During this time Connor met many other people such as LOK Oakbow, LOK Thor, LOK Tanis, and Lady Tamie (who was destined to become his fifth wife) Jorrick Thor who was a strange lad who enjoyed killing people. There were many other LOKs but none so suprising as the remergance of Ducan Maceloud. During the few years upon the world of Neverwinter, Connor made many close friends and began the ranger sect of LOK. During this time Connor was befrended by the elves of the woods and plains spending a long time in their company he was trained as a true elven warrior and made some lifelong friends there. There was a time off peace and prosperity as the land grew fertile and the Rangers multiplied, The Rangers led by Connor, Averyl, Duncan, Tammie, Pyrite and Robin were in a golden age. Then the Dark Queen again laid seige to the land of Neverwinter, the blackness swept the land as many Knights of Takehesis and Rangers died. Connor encountered the dark knight Soth a being both immortal and dead in his own right, During the war the Rangers suffered heavy losses many died to include Connor's cousion Duncan Maceloud who was beheaded by the resurected Kurrgan. Connor took the Kurrigans head but not in time to save the land of neverwinter or stop the evil of the dark queen. Thus the second Dark war ended in defeat for the Lords of Krynn, and Connor heartbroken at the loss of some of his most trusted and loved friends and lovers retreated with the elves on a quest throughout the planes. To the world of Britanna.
Connor currently leads the Rangers through the land of Britanna and has been able to resurect his sect from the ashes of the defeated LOKs, He is good friends with LOK Dor, Blaze,Pyrite and Rastil. He has become very close to LOK Shirak over the years and is often seen in the company of the mage or in the Company of the Knight Talmorr. A brief fight was waged upon the word against the minions of the Dark Queen which resulted in the Teaming up of the Knights Sect and the Ranger sect. This potent power created the curcumstance for the Dark Knight Soth to be banished from the land. Connor currently resides in the land around the City of Trinsic and is sometimes seen in the Woodland around Britanina. The Rangers now are begining a new age of LOK again upon a new and differnt multiverse.
Connor MacLeod: Tall and strong, with light brown hair and keen green eyes, this elven trained survivor ranks among the finest warriors in all the world. With sword, he is the complete fighter, quick and agile, fast of foot and hand, and with the sheer power to blast through the defenses of any foe. With his magnificent bow and his understanding of the forest ways, he is even more deadly. The folk of Britannia need a hero; Connor MacLeod and his Rangers may fill that role.
