Valiant Profile #1: Ev’etaewayr

Hey, there. Luis, here! I’ve talked a little bit about the world of Valiant, so now it’s time to learn a little bit about the characters you will get to know during the show and the players behind them. First up is Know Direction network member Rob Pontious and his character, Ev’etaewayr.

Rob Pontious works in web commerce by day and is a writer for’s #InvestingIn, a player for Roll for Combat’s #ThreeRingAdventure podcast, and also a player for GehennaGaming’s #GehennaValley MonsterHearts2 twitch stream. He’s a lover of TTRPGs for over three decades, a gamer, and a GAYMER. You can find him on social media as @silentinfinity.

Ev’etaewayr (ev-ah-tah-way-er) prefers his friends call him Ev, and he tells you as much as you approach. “Pull up a chair! Let’s have a drink,” he beckons even as he side-eyes a table of Chelaxian travelers. He, like his Mwangi boots and Xopatli tunic, is a combination of cultures far and wide. The playboy’s grin is inviting and warm, but his golden eyes betray an intelligence beyond the cavalier, ne’er-do-well attitude. Altameda is more of a crash-pad than a home as he frequently ventures out atop a giant camel spider Isnana, old magics on the lips of the vigilant explorer.
