Shangas, Lord of the Timescape

So I finished The Rime of the Frostmaiden a few months ago and one of my players ended up going back in time and becoming king of Iriolarthas. Anyway, it inspired me to make this NPC stat block for him. I suspect there are exactly 4 people in the world who would care about this blog post at all but here you go guys!
