Gzornenplatz, a tall, gruff, whipcord thin man with sandy blone hair, was the guildmaster of the Guild of Huntsmen in 966. He gave a speech to the Final Conclave of Enchanters detailing the failure of the FRIPPLE spell. This spell protected towns and villages from wild beasts, but when it failed, large troops of rat-ants encroached upon human settlements.

The course of this discussion was interrupted when the Shadow of the Head of the Circle enterred the Hall and turned everyone except his human counterpart into various amphibious creatures. Gzornenplatz was turned into a leopard frog.
