I asked Eric Campanella who the robed figure in the Rune of Torment spell movie is and this is what he said (August 23, 2003);
Actually, that robed character is a bit of my own joke. Think of it as evoking the Dungeon Master himself to aid you. We never explained it that way, but I've always thought of it like that! :)
