Gurge Kisgregg (pronounced /ˈɡɜrdʒ ˈkɪzˌɡreɡ/) is the man Chetney Pock O'Pea first came to Jrusar to meet. Although Chetney characterized him at first to the Campaign Three adventuring party as someone who might be able to secure him employment as a master craftsman, his real reason for contacting Gurge was to learn from him how to control his lycanthropy. As an NPC, Gurge is played by Matthew Mercer.



Gurge is around six feet tall and has oily dark brown hair. His nose appears to have been broken at some point.[3] According to Chetney, he smells terrible.[4]



Gurge lives somewhere in the Oderan Wilds surrounding the city of Jrusar, but goes into the city for meetings.[5] Chetney met him, but shortly after, he disappeared.[6]

"A Woodworker's Quandary" (3x08)

Chetney told the rest of the Campaign Three adventuring party that he wanted to employ them to find Gurge, who had gone missing. When the party went to the Smoulder Spire to investigate, they found Gurge's temporary residence locked; after Chetney broke in they found that the room had been ransacked and much of the furniture had been clawed. There were sprays of blood on the floor, some of which someone had attempted to clean up. The party then asked some of the wardens about Gurge. They were not forthcoming with information, but Fearne wildshaped into a rat and followed two of them further into the district headquarters. She heard their leader tell the other two Wardens that Gurge had been arrested and was being held in prison, and that they would "take care of the rest."[7]

"Thicker Grows the Meal and Plot" (3x09)

Fearne, after charming Keledon, the head warden at the factory, learned that Gurge had been brought in by Artana Voe, a famed bounty hunter. The party located Artana following a lead from Ariks Eshteross, and were able to pay her to reveal that the bounty on Gurge had been put out by Vali Dertrana, who explicitly wanted Gurge brought in alive, and that Gurge had been delivered to the Moon Tower in the Core Spire. Artana also told the party that Gurge transformed into a beast, and warned them against getting bitten by him.[8]

"Ghosts, Dates, and Darker Fates" (3x10)

When the party re-entered Vali's office through the window Chetney had broken earlier that night, and went down the hidden staircase, they discovered that Gurge was being kept in a cage by Ira.[9]
