NPCs of Firebright Keep

These folks are all found in Firebright Keep, in the Barony of Bauglir in Teiglin, close to the Borderlands.

6th level cleric, align Lawful, age 67, gender male
Str 10, Int 14, Wis 17, Dex 8, Con 8, Cha 12
AC 8, Move 90' HP 12, THAC0 17, Att 1 staff for 1d6 
Equipment: Staff of Curing, Ring of Displacement
Talmuddor is a retired adventurer who has settled down in Firebright Keep. He helps and supports the garrison and adventurers (as long as they are well-behaved) and he also asks adventurers to help out in the fight against Chaos.
Although Talmuddor is naturally opposed to creatures born of Chaos, he has a particular hatred and contempt for humans and demihumans who willingly turn to Chaos. This could prove awkward for adventuring parties that include chaotic members, as Talmuddor is not bothered about the difference between behaving chaotically and actually fighting for the forces of Chaos.
Description: Talmuddor is scarred from his adventuring days - he has a peg-leg and scars on his lower left cheek. He has a weather-beaten face, iron grey hair and moustach.

Vestival the Fiery
8th level magic user, align unaligned, age 57, gender male
Str 8, Int 16, Wis 10, Dex 10, Con 16, Cha 13
AC 5, Move 120' HP 40, THAC0 17, Att 1 spell or 1 dagger for 1d4

Memorized Spells: (3/3/2/2) Magic Missile *2, Sleep, Mirror Image, Invisibility, Continual Light, Fireball, Lightning Bolt, Plant Growth, Wall of Fire 
Vestival is a wrathful destroyer of chaotic monsters who makes regular forays out from Firebright Keep into the borderlands to hunt down and destroy chaotic marauders. He will talk, if pressed, of his early memories of his family fleeing Erkhart during the Summoning but then seeing them killed by bugbears and gnolls as they approached Bauglir. He and his brother survived and were raised by a kindly mage (one of Valderin's students).
Vestival can be quite ruthless in his pursuit of Chaotic foes and can drag other folks along on his hunts when they may not be ready or entirely willing. He despises those who refuse to join him on his crusade, and he may accuse them of cowardice or weakness.
Description: Vestival is tall, dark and imposing in his robes. He has a saturnine face with heavy black brows and hooked nose and chin. He wears black robes that he swirls around in a very dramatic fashion.

Beryllia the Bright
7th level halfling scout, align neutral, age 34, gender female
Str 14, Int 9, Wis 12, Dex 18, Con 13, Cha 10
AC 2, move 90' HP 26, THAC0 12 with sword for 1d6+1, THAC0 10 with bow for 1d6+1
Equipment: Chain Mail, shortsword+1, shortbow+1,  quiver +20 arrows, elven boots, potion of extra healing.
Beryllia is the principal scout in Firebright Keep. She leads a motley band of other halflings, elven rangers and human thieves keeping a hidden eye on the borderlands. She is usually friendly with adventurers - she considers them to be additional eyes and ears if they return from the borderlands and are willing to talk to her. 
Beryllia has a particular vendetta against hobgoblins and will seek them out and kill them in preference to other chaotic humanoids. She will not say why.
Description: Beryllia is 3'2", wiry and agile. She has been compared to a hare armed to the teeth. She has tanned skin from staying outside and dark blonde hair she keeps in a ponytail. She does not worry about personal appearance, and will not worry about going for days dirty and unwashed.

Captain Telemach
6th level fighter, align Lawful, age 33, gender female
Str 14, Int 12, Wis 10, Dex 16, Con 10, Cha 11
AC Move 90' HP 33, THAC0 base 15 14 with sword for 1d8+1 damage, or THAC0 11 with bow for 1d6+2
Equipment: Chain mail +1, sword, Longbow +2, 2 quivers, 40 arrows,
Telemach is the captain of archery at Firebright Keep. She commands a company of 80 archers in the army of Teiglin and is one of the senior officers in the Keep. Telemach is quite defensive in her tactics, and prefers to hold the line, keeping the hordes of Chaos at bay rather than seeking battle in the borderlands.  Telemach speaks elvish, and she knows the village of Iridell well - some say that is where she learned her skill at archery, while others say she has an elf boyfriend there.
Description: Telemach is 5'5", 110lb and with black hair and pale skin. She has several scars and the top half of her left ear is missing.
