- This article is about the fictional character. For the MMO commentator, see “Lum the Mad.”
In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Baron Lum the Mad was a mighty Oeridian warlord, a scion of House Cranden, whose power was at least partially due to his possession of the artifact known as the Infernal Machine. Lum was betrayed by his former general, Leuk-o, when the latter came to possess the artifact, later known as the Mighty Servant of Leuk-o. Their final conflict left a large area wasted and led to the disappearance of both artifacts, plunging through a dimensional rift to the plane of Limbo, where Lum remained for centuries, his machine never allowing him to die.
Lum the Mad in other mediaEdit
Lum and his Infernal Machine have been featured in the computer games Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, as being imprisoned in Watcher's Keep, and briefly at the end of Planescape: Torment when the final boss refers to a time when the Nameless One “danced sorceries with Lum the Mad.”
