"Rodgort is a creature" ... "Rodgort was the name of an elementalist profession trainer" - removing speculation and separating trivia from the rest. Let people make their own deductions.
[[Rodgort]] is a
creature mentioned in the skills [[Mark of Rodgort]] and [[Rodgort's Invocation]], two [[Elementalist]] [[Fire Magic]] spells. The artwork of the latter skill's icon suggests that Rodgort is some sort of Dragon. Also note that "Rodgort" is "Trogdor" backwards, short for "[http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php/Trogdor Trogdor the Burninator]" - a well-known fire-breathing dragon -man from the Homestar Runner cartoons. Additionally, Rodgort was once the name of the Elementalist primary profession trainer, met in the first quest in pre-searing Ascalon (similarly, the necromancer trainer [[Verata]] grew to infamy by post-searing). However, his name was at some point changed for unknown reasons.
