Rumors

  • Dwarfs have no souls, so you can do whatever you want to them with no moral repercussions.
  • You know about Elisabet Llorens the Bard? Yeah someone told me he died two years ago in a freak accident. Then out of nowhere, he strolled into town a few days back. He looks good for a dead guy.
  • People grow suspicious of half-orc merchants peddling gold dragon parts in the market.

Patrons

The following people are currently in the common room:

  • Huranth, megalomaniacal man-at-arms: waits for the perfect moment to announce ambitions, attempts to take command of party through rather charismatic speechifying, points out blunders of PC leadership, lampoons PC foibles, issues general mockery (you’ve earned this one, DM)
  • ugly hill dwarf
  • drab journeyman
  • distinctive priest
  • quite dark-haired master
  • A shy, paranoid, home-bound scholar who holds the keys to undoing a wicked plot.
  • dragonborn announces that while working in their fields, they found an old dagger
  • artillerist

Valuables:

  • belt pouch holding 21 coins: coin made of iron, worth about 17sp; the face shows a bastard sword, the obverse shows an arcanadaemon
