Kingsport - Forgotten Realms
A Drow trying to freeze himself to immortality
Alcazzar was a Drow owning the Laboratory in the fang. He used some cryo-magic combination to try to achieve eternal life and was ancient as a result.
He had constructed a giant magical refrigerator to live in. While the party was exploring his room, he influenced Dick to open the magical fridge door and wake him up.
Murderclock thus started, things went south almost immediately with Hrothgar catching a particularly nasty ice bolt. Alcazzar was doused in oil and then set alight and beaten upon with many weapons.
