Sanctum of the Makers
A Grizzled Barkeep, Overseer of Trade in Farrowfield
An Old Barkeep, perhaps a retired hero. Runs the Lusty Maiden Tavern in Farrowfield. He carries a slightly rusted greataxe with him at all times, perhaps a momento of his past. He is fairly short, rotund and balding, though you may not want to say it to his face. ‘Blackhand’ became his nickname shortly after the Farrowfield town hall was destroyed by bandits nearly 20 years ago. He is called ‘Blackhand’ due to his badly burnt left hand, which is almost black. ‘Blackhand’ gives the Players their first Main Story Quest, titled ‘Taken’. Being the Overseer of Trade in Farrowfield, he asks the Players to help him out, in reward for a small sum of gold and some magical items. ‘Blackhand’s actual name is unknown at this time, but it is known that he was not Born or raised in Farrowfield. ‘Blackhand’ is balding, with spectacles. He is at least 60 years old, and wears a thick woollen jumper, as if all he feels is the cold. On his wrist is a burnished golden wristwatch that has seen better days, its screen is cracked slightly, and there are a few links missing from the chain that holds it to his skin. He has a slight hunchback, which affects his mobility, but he will defend his tavern to the end.
