Sneffle, a small doughy gentleman, was the guildmaster of the Guild
of Bakers in 966. This perpetual baker used magic intensely while
baking, and his Enchanted Oven Mitts (these completely black ones
replaced his original unflattering ones which he used to create his
famous Éclairs of Creamy Death) were extra-resistant to extreme
temperatures. It has been said that he was more likely to let one have
his mother to barbeque than to part with his mitts.
As magic began to fail due to the interference of the
Shadow of the Head of the Circle, he had a "devil of a time" staying in
business. The GLOTH spell, which would fold the dought 83 times, had
usually brought him profit, but with the failure, it hardly worked, and
when it did, it usually folded the dought too often and the buttered
melted, or it didn't come out the right size. He brought this up at the
Guild, they took a vote, but no one could help him.
the Final Conclave of enchanters met in Borphee that same year, Sneffle
gave a speech detailing the failure of the GLOTH spell. Dependent
on magic, he
was overwhelmed by the prospect of a world where the pastries have to
be handmade. The course of this discussion was interrupted when the
Shadow enterred the Hall and turned everyone except his
human counterpart into various amphibious creatures. Sneffle was turned
into a tree toad.
the recovery of the Coconut of Quendor in the same year, Sneffle
boarded a magical galleon with Captain Zahab, Y'Gael, Cardinal Toolbox,
Grote Clutchcake, and an unknown peasant. Together they sailed high
into the sky with the Coconut in hand.
In 967, the ship met a
terrible fate when it was swallowed by the great flying Watchdragon of
the Great Sea. While Captain Zahab escaped alive, and Y'gael met a
mysterious fate, Sneffle was forced to relocate his home to the
interior of the Watchdragon (the fate of the rest of the crew is
uncertain). He was never one to not make the best of things. Although
he lived in the throat of the dragon, and realized he could never
return to his bakery, he made great pina colda.
was not normally a phone in his flat, the dragon eventually swallowed
some sort of ship contain one, which Sneffle used to phone the current
Dungeon Master, Dalboz of Gurth, for help sometime between 1048~1067
GUE. While Sneffle's final fate is unknown, he did have a run in with
the famous Griff who arrived at the Watchdragon via a time tunnel (due
to the uncertainity of the date in which the Griff arrived, this could
place the date anywhere from 967~1067).
At that time, Sneffle,
who was still residing in the throat of the dragon (and was
naked), was attempting to make a pina colada, but was running short on
ingredients. He needed to run to the store to pick up a coconut and
thus threw a rope up to the Griff who was standing in the mouth, hoping
that it would be tied to one of the dragon's teeth so he could climb
up. Unfortunately for the former baker, the Griff ignored him, using
the rope for his own schemes in retrieving the Coconut of Quendor from
the mouth of the Watchdragon.
After his death (or eternal exile), the Guild of Bakers ran a competition and the prize was Sneffle's old oven mitts.
