Rumors

  • elegant tiefling
  • very unusual, a little disillusioned merchant of artworks
  • unusual, cautious merchant of mules
  • Bad-ass young pirate with a reputation of spilling the blood of all who dare cross him but who is really a woman with short hair and bound breasts who falls apart every time she sees a man who even vaguely resembles her long-missing father.
  • Donnachac, a social high class zombie innkeeper sporting a monocle and a cane welcomes tourists/adventurers by day and eats their brains by night with a silver spoon while they are asleep and rates them as if they were wine.

  • a commander sullenly clutching their drink and staring off into space
  • a woman complains that a skunk has taken up residence under her home; she blames her neighbor for luring it there

  • pretty and poisoned (burnt othur fumes) person
