Sabrille the Leech Fetcher    NPCs  (Minor)   (Travelers)

She sat down and chatted with the young man until the leeches began to just fall off her legs - satiated with blood.  The young man, enthralled and disgusted by what he just saw, thanked her and went on his way.

Tired of giving your players a cache of non-descript diamonds, plain amethysts, and simple sapphires?

Winded Warrior Resthouse    Locations  (Establishment)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The establishment is run by an elderly goblin named Sax Stoneswiller.  Providing this service to non-goblins is much more lucrative than what he was able to receive with his clan.

Court Etiquette: Do's and Don'ts    Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - In General)

When dealing with nobility and court settings, players can sometimes skip the roleplay aspect and jump straight to behavior such as, "I bow, greet all in the court, and ask the duke for his assistance."  While in most scenarios this type of action is sufficient, taking it a step further can enhance gameplay (or maybe even manipulate a plotline).

Dayern's Hamlet    Locations  (City)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Celebrations can be found everywhere: from the big city to your local township.  Sometimes the smaller locales can have the richest of all celebrations since they are more personal.  Dayern’s Hamlet is one of those places.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.

[b]Plothook[/b] The Mermen Mercantile Alliance hires the party to eradicate all terrestrial Pearl Spider Farms!
