NPCs of Sterin Barony

All these characters are found in Sterin Barony in the Godsblood Straits

Baron Samthor Wildtide
10th level fighter, align neutral, age 45, gender male
Str 12, Int 14, Wis 14, Dex 10, Con 16, Cha 14
AC 3, Move 120', HP 60, THAC0 10, Att 1 sword for 1d8+2
Equipment: Chain Mail +2, Sword +2, Dagger +2, Amulet vs Crystal Balls and ESP, 2 potions of extra healing
Baron Samthor is interested in both his continued rulership of Sterin and also Sterin Barony's expanding role in the wider world. He is interested in developing trade and military connections with Teiglin while staying independent. He is also interested in the Island of Lost Souls as a possible fiefdom. Baron Samthor is a smooth operator who is the biggest fish in a small pond (Sterin). He is interested in meeting similar rulers (such as the Town Council of Ironmarket and the Barons of Luthien and Stelmit) to assess what they are like.

Sister Goralash Wildtide
11th level cleric, align neutral, age 48, gender female
Str 10, Int 12, Wis 17, Dex 9, Con 14, Cha 12
AC  0, Mv 120', HP 44, THAC0 13, Att 1 mace for 1d6+2 or by spell
Equipment: Chain Mail +2, Mace +2, Shield +2, Holy Symbol, Potion of Invisibility
Sister Goralash is the half-sister of Baron Samthor and the leader of the Church of Vought on Sterin Island. She views control of the sea as vital to Sterin Barony's trade, military, diplomacy and fishing, and encourages Samthor to build up a powerful navy and merchant fleet. Sister Goralash is ambitious and some think she meddles too much in politics. She wants Vought to be the pre-eminent deity on Sterin Island, and she will pull political strings to achieve this.

Durnold Broadbough
7th level magic user, align neutral, age 56, gender male
Str 8, Int 16, Wis 13, Dex 16, Con 11, Cha 13
AC 4, Move 120', HP 18, THAC0 18, Att 1 dagger for 1d4 or by spell
Equipment: Wand of Magic Missiles, Robe of Protection +1, Ring of Protection +2, 2 potions of extra healing, Dagger +1
Durnold is a merchant who inherited his father's business. He sees new opportunities opening up and wants to seize them. Durnold has visited Tearfall several times and Luthien and Tredgor in Teiglin as well as scouting the east side of the Godsblood Strait for a suitable port or trading post. Durnold considers himself primarily a merchant, with magic using and sailing as secondary skills - being a competent mage reduces the risk of robbery and fraud. Durnold does not have political ambitions - he is quite happy making a healthy profit.

Brogvar the Unyielding
11th level dwarf warrior, unaligned, gender male
Str 18, Int 7, Wis 10, Dex 10, Con 16, Cha 8
AC 1, Move 90' HP 62, THAC0 7, Att 1 battleaxe for 1d8+5
Equipment: Plate Mail +2, Battleaxe +2, Ring of Spell Turning
Brogvar is Baron Samthor's champion and bodyguard. He is unquestioningly loyal to the baron and will do anything short of outright suicide. Brogvar is not the cleverest of dwarves, and has a tendency to kill first and ask questions later. His one weakness is chocolate which may distract him from his duties. Brogvar has a dangerous reputation in Sterinport, and most folks give him a wide berth, particularly after he mistook an over-enthusiastic wellwisher who tried to hug the Baron as a would-be assassin. The results were messy but nobody has tried to hug the Baron since.

Brother Rastis
9th level cleric, align Lawful, gender male
Str 12, Int 12, Wis 15, Dex 10, Con 10, Cha 14
AC 2, Move 90', HP 34, THAC0 14, Att 1 mace for 1d6+2 or by spell
Equipment: Chain Mail, Shield +2, Mace +2 +3 vs chaotic creatures, holy symbol, 2 vials of holy water, scroll of protection from elementals
Brother Rastis is a follower of Adonor and runs a chapel in Sterinport. He is eager to seek out and destroy the forces of Chaos, and considers the Island of Lost Souls the first priority. Once the Island of Lost Souls is cleansed, he has his holy sights set on Maquosmouth, Aerisport and the rest of Kaelaross. He dislikes Sister Goralash, and considers her manipulative and unspiritual. He is one of the very few people of Sterin to openly criticize her.
