While I often ask for more details and clarifications, I agree with many others before me that the charm of this particular sub lies in its provision of tantalising details that spark readers' imaginations and 'tease' them. Not quite a 5 for me but definitely a sub where I wouldn't want to change a thing. Go to Comment

A good addition for dungeons plus a nice idea on itself.

Too bad with the confusing cross-links. Like the others, I think the core idea is haunting and a great addition to the Sorrows. However, the cross-links can really make one's head spin.

I actually read this as a serious sub and I think it still does okay. As for this being a 5 in 1, I personally think that the 5 haven't been as tightly interwoven into this sub as the other Quest subs but then this could be due to the particular 5 used. Overall, I do like it but probably not as much as the others who commented before me.

Great formatting that makes it very easy to read and seamless integration of the 5 subs. A good piece of work.

To me, a standard 3.0 piece although I agree the name is very fitting and has an enhancing effect on the piece.

As a complete novice in weapons, I think this sub does great in that it's not just abt the weapon but also contains elements that adds colours to a typical fantasy setting. Go to Comment

I can see the issues in logic that others before me have raised but somehow I like this idea so much that I've decided to vote 3 rather than 2.5 although this is in the lower end of a 3. Go to Comment

Matron Maranisha Hopsham of St. Margaret’s chapel

Matron Maranisha is a woman in her middle ages who has aged gracefully. Of small slim build, she exudes an air of refinement, intelligence and quiet confidence. She is a figure that can easily melt into the background if she so desires.

Family and Life:
Matron Maranisha was the second of 3 daughters born to Frederick Hopsham and Heather Mayfair, who are both deceased now. Her sisters are Satrina who is married to the local baker Terry and Triasha who runs the apothecary along with her husband Philander. Maranisha also has an elder brother, Winelo Hopsham, who is father to the shrewd Finnea, Ferdinand Lenders’s wife.

From modest beginnings, St. Margaret’s chapel has grown somewhat under the direction of Matron Maranisha and is relatively well-off nowadays. It currently houses 8-9 nuns, several kitchen hands and a resident healer. While Matron Maranisha heads the service every morning, most of her time is spent outside helping the poor and outcasts. In addition, she has the confidence of many townspeople and often mediate in disputes. Most of the administration work at the chapel is now in the hands of the capable Sister Veronica. The two have become steadfast friends over the years.

Roleplaying Notes:
Since Matron Maranisha spends most of her time with the poor and outcasts, she might have gained the trust of people such as Stepanich, who might pass her information that could potentially be useful to adventurers. In addition, given that Matron Maranisha herself can be easily overlooked when she chooses and the confidence that many townspeople have in her, she is very familiar with any intrigues going on in the town.

Ryan Archiletta
Resident Healer at St. Margaret’s chapel

Ryan is in his 30s, an amiable man who is well liked in the town. Ryan is tall and somewhat thin but not weak. In public he often acts reserved and yet to his patients, he always appears cheerful.

Family and Life:
A very distant cousin of Gavin, Ryan was orphaned early along with his sister Vanessa and were taken in by an old healer who taught Ryan everything in the practice of healing. Ryan’s childhood playmates included a handful of the brewers that now work in Bercherd’s as well as Veronica Luckshorn. In fact, Ryan has always had a crush on Veronica but was too shy to reveal his feelings. Subsequent to Veronica’s taking the veil, Ryan married the youngest of Winelo Hopsham’s girls but unfortunately, she died in childbirth soon after, along with the stillborn baby. Ryan has remained a bachelor ever since. In contrast, his sister Vanessa married early to the local carpenter and is already the proud mother of 2 boys.

Ryan used to live and work in the old healer’s cottage but after the old healer died, his son sold the cottage, leaving Ryan with no place to live and practice his craft. Luckily, Matron Maranisha has kindly offered the chapel for his use. Ryan leads quite a busy but fulfilling life in caring for patients and visiting his two nephews (Ryan is very fond of them).

Special Equipment:
His healer’s kit that contains herbs that are frequently used in treating illnesses

Roleplaying Notes:
Ryan would be a useful contact if information is required on illnesses, poisons and effects of herbs etc. Go to Comment

Yvonna Jolly
Spice Merchant’s wife and Town gossip

In her mid-30s, Yvonna is short and plump but not too hard on the eyes. With a mane the colour of honey, large round eyes and a sensual mouth, Yvonna managed to capture a few stares before her once trim figure was destroyed by 3 child births and a soft life as a merchant’s wife. Besides gossip, Yvonna loves extravagance and is seen in her best attire at all times with lots of jewellery.

Family and Life:
Yvonna is Milton Redfern’s younger sister and married to Joshua Jolly the spice merchant. She has 3 teenage children- a son by the name of Jonny and 2 daughters, Jasmine and Jenny.

Although her husband’s spice shop is one of the most profitable businesses in town and the Redfern family too is well-off, Yvonna is not above associating with womenfolk of lower social class than herself. Yvonna is particularly friendly with Vanessa and Triasha. As the town gossip, Yvonna spends the majority of her time visiting people all around town and chatting with them.

Roleplaying Notes:
Other than being an annoying information source for PCs (she would be more likely to talk gibberish all day on petty things but once in a while she just might happen to know that glimmer of something that the PCs need), Yvonna would be a prime murder victim. Go to Comment

Daunton Sedwick

Retired court advisor/mage


Although once a magician by profession, Daunton is broad shouldered and has a warrior’s physique. Currently in his early 50s, Daunton has blond hair that is just turning to light ash. To most, he might appear grim at first glance, which is partly due to the fact that he is hardly ever seen to ‘smile’. Yet, those who knew him well would notice the slight upturned corner of the mouth that is his signature smile and the glint in his eyes that betrays the warmth hidden behind the stern ‘façade’.

Family and Life:

Although bearing the title of Court Mage, Daunton showed more capability at military tactics and hence was in effect more akin to an advisor on defence. Tired of court intrigues, Daunton has retired early to lead a quiet and idyllic life.

Daunton currently lives with 3 apprentices: his niece Yilmina, a free spirited girl on the verge of womanhood; Erik Tinton, a young man with a serious disposition; and a shy boy still in his teens who is only known as Tainu.

Having come into contact with Sir Midian of Ranulphens during Daunton’s court days, the two have acquired a somewhat uneasy friendship. Daunton now sits on the town council and together with Gavin oversees the defence of the town. Being a capable swordsman, he also closely supervises the training of the local militia and youngsters showing promise at a military career.

Roleplaying Notes:

It might be a bit intimidating to approach Daunton if you don’t know him well. However, if an acquaintanceship with him can be cultivated and he approves of the person, he can be quite useful as an information source on military tactics, basic court etiquette etc.
