NPCs of Luthien

These NPCs are all found in and around the town of Luthien. The Baron is described elsewhere.

Harbin Stormbrewer, Mayor of Luthien
3rd level Fighter, align Lawful, age 55, gender Male
Str 10, Int 12, Wis 10, Dex 12, Con 8, Cha 14
AC 5 or 9, Move 120', HP 11, THAC0 18, Dam 1d8+1
Equipment: Sword +1, Chainmail, chains of office, smart town clothes
Harbin is the Mayor of Luthien. He is more of a bureaucrat than a soldier and is concerned about keeping the nobles and merchants happy. He does not like adventurers ("roguish ne'er-do-wells") but knows they can occasionally be useful.
Description: Harbin is quite tall (6'4") and mild-looking with iron-grey hair, balding on top. He is soft-spoken, but when excited or angry he talks very fast and starts to stutter. He rarely wears armour (kept only for emergencies), and instead is usually found in smart town-clothes and his chains of office. 

Derrobar Emeraldeye, Mage of Luthien
12th level Magic User, align Neutral, age 43, gender Male
Str 10, Int 16, Wis 12, Dex 13, Con 8, Cha 10
AC 7, Move 120', hp 20, THAC0 15, dam 1d6+1
Equipment: Wand of Illusion (10 charges), Quarterstaff +1, Ring of Protection +2
Spells memorised:  Move Earth, Project Image, Passwall, Transmute Rock to Mud, Conjure Elemental, Polymorph Self, Dimension Door, Confusion, Fireball, Protection from Chaos 10' radius, Clairvoyance (other 1st and 2nd level spells up to DM)
Derrobar is the most powerful character in Luthien, but he keeps to himself and keeps a low profile. Other people say that he's mad, but he has made powerful enemies among the forces of Chaos beyond Teiglin and is in hiding. He is particularly interested in reports of chaotic clerics of notable power. Derrobar uses his spells to help with town construction - Move Earth, Disintegrate and Transmute Rock to Mud (and reverse) are all useful for civil engineering, but used on the understanding that his reputation does not go beyond this town.
Description: Derrobar is tall (6'2") and saturnine, with a hooked nose and deep black eyes and heavy eyebrows. He has a well-groomed mustach and sideburns and keeps his brown hair shoulder-length. He has stopped wearing wizard robes and now wears a tunic and breaches like an artisan or workman so he is less likely to be spotted by his enemies.

Corporal Mermivar
1st level fighter, align Neutral, age 33, gender Female
Str 14, Int 12, Wis 8, Dex 10, Con 10, Cha 10
AC 4, Move 90', hp 5, THAC0 18, dam 1d8+1
Equipment: chain mail, sword, shield, lantern, 10 flasks of oil, flint and steel, backpack.
Mermivar is supposedly in charge of keeping the sewers in good condition but is currently caught up in other business (family, town watch duties, baby-sitting for friends, charity functions and other duties). She has an unofficial policy of "don't ask, don't tell, don't cause trouble" for the sewers, and has only recently taken notice of the current situation.
Description: Mermivar is 5' 10" with blonde hair and a plain face that usually has a worried expression on it. She goes about her duties in town guard standard uniform and is surprisingly clean and odourless considering where her duties should take her.  

Reverend Sorillos
5th level cleric, align Lawful, age 47, gender Male
Str 10, Int 13, Wis 16, Dex 10, Con 10, Cha 13
AC 9 or 3, Move 90', hp 20, THAC0 17, Dam 1d6+1
Equipment: Plate mail, Mace +1, Holy Symbol, Potion of Levitation
Spells Memorised: Dispel Magic, Hold Person, Speak with Animal, Light, Cure Light Wounds x2
Devout, aloof and often unrealistic, Reverend Sorillos is the Chief Cleric of Rhondus in Luthien. He is the principal authority on spiritual matters, which does not sit well with many people. He dislikes Trosker the constable, considering him a drunken mercenary, and expects other people to be as righteous as he is. He often delivers impromptu sermons.
Description: Reverend Sorillos is a small man with a big voice. He is only 5'3" and is physically unimposing with grey hair and wrinkly, clean-shaven face. His voice is loud and powerful, and it can be heard across Luthien when the Reverend is roused by something, either denouncing a sinner or exhorting the faithful to ever greater works. He only wears his plate armour in emergencies, preferring his clerical cassock.

Trosker Fireforge
4th level dwarf warrior, align Neutral, age 92, gender Male
Str 13, Int 10, Wis 14, Dex 10, Con 16, Cha 8 
AC 4, Move 90', hp 36, THAC0 17, Dam 1d6+2
Equipment: Chain mail, shield, handaxe +1, shortbow, quiver + 20 arrows
Trosker is the Constable of Luthien and head of the town guard. He is a tough, no-nonsense dwarf who is determined to keep the town peaceful and under control. He may not be popular (he has certainly ruffled some feathers) but he doesn't care. He is partial to ale, and can be found propping up the bar at the local taverns when off-duty.
Description: Trosker is a typical dwarf with reddish-brown hair and big beard. He has a bulky frame, even for a dwarf, but a lot of that is muscle, so few people dare to call him fat. He is 4'2" tall, and is nearly always found in his town guard regulation uniform (chain mail and shield included).
