Non-Player Characters (NPCs)

"a hunched elderly elf"

  • Wizened and hunched with age, this elf nonetheless has a keen eye and steady hands. Dressed in a simple linen tunic partly covered by an old green cape, he wanders about aimlessly, as though looking for something long lost.

"a tall elven woman"

  • Tall and strongly built, Lilly moves with the grace and surety of one who has lived long and seen much. Her slender face, framed by tresses of golden blonde hair neatly tied back, is open and friendly, but her eyes miss nothing occurring within her domain.

"a sleek red squirrel"

  • You see a fairly typical red squirrel. It appears to be in good shape. It has nothing at this time.
