Lougnir was at one time the master of the Guild of Cartographers, and one of the seven which prepared a guild directory for a future enchanter, who they believed would conquer an evil warlock (who would turn out to be Krill).

This magician placed a curse on a map which would cause the one who broke the seal to be transformed into a consummate babbling idiot. In 956 GUE, Lafe, seeking to help the unknown enchanter despite the ruling of the older cartographers, proved that this curse was no mere superstition.
