Deneir Skoda



Sandy-haired and blue-eyed like most of the local population, Deneir is distinguishable through well proportioned features that are the basis of his good looks. Through subtle encouragements from Deneir, most people feel at ease when talking to him, especially females.   

Family and Life:

The Skoda name is attached to one of the local families that were part of the initial settlers at the town and with extensive tributaries in terms of descendants. Hence, some form of distant kinsmanship can be traced between Deneir and most of the current town residents. Of his immediate family, Deneir has 5 siblings, all of which are still living in town. Invariably, through their own occupations or marriage, Deneir’s siblings are all plain individuals wielding little power over their surroundings. Deneir is the only one in the family who has risen above the common and, through his work, come to be respected across different rungs in the town society.

Seen by many as a ‘womaniser’, Deneir has had his share of troubles with secret admirers and jealous lovers/husbands. To Deneir, these are simply part of the ‘hazards’ that come with the job and so far has managed to skillfully fend off these unpleasantries. In terms of his genuine lover life, feelings are starting to develop between him and Yilmina. On the other hand, such feelings are so tentalisingly close to love and yet… not quite.

Other Connections:

One of the valued informants that Deneir has cultivated over the years is Yvonna and he has developed a highly efficient way of sorting the gem from the rabble in her often pointless chattering. Nevertheless, Deneir is still driven to the border of his sanity half the time when he approaches Yvonna for information because with her, any hold one manages to gather over the flow of the conversation is always tentative.

Roleplaying Notes:

Deneir would be very useful either as a link to other NPCs or a key NPC for a whodunit session set at the town (either part of the NPC investigative party or the ‘set up to be framed’)

One more character fortcoming to complete my contribution to this particular scoll. It's been both a challenge and fun to write about mundane (and yet not too much so) people. Go to Comment

Sir Lloydlyn Sanmadran

Noble’s son in ‘Exile’


Tall and lean, Lloydlyn is plain looking in an entirely nondescript way. He often has a glazed look in his eyes when he is preoccupied with his own thoughts. However, once he starts talking of his collection, this will quickly be replaced by a almost childlike expression of glee.

Family and Life:

A recent arrival at town, Lloydlyn is the youngest son of Duke Sanmadran who has only recently risen in power. Having committed the ‘2 Great Sins’- incompetence and sloth (at least in the eyes of his father), he was ‘sent’ to the town to prevent the Sanmadran name being further stained by his embarrassing actions. Ostensibly, Lloydlyn was installed in the town to oversee the collection of taxes due to his father. In reality, he is mostly seen around various taverns conversing with adventurers or in the library seeking out obscure references. For Lloydlyn is neither incompetent nor lazy but rather an enthusiastic collector of curios absorbed in his own pursuits most of the time.

Lloydlyn is acquainted with Daunton from his days in court and is a steadfast friend with Tainu. In terms of social life, so far Lloydlyn has been rather successful at escaping the clutches of aspiring parents who want to present their daughters to him as eligible wives by making himself scarce. He does attend the one or two social events that are unavoidable when one belongs to the upper class.

Roleplaying Notes:

Always eager to talk to adventurers to gather news of various curious items, Lloydlyn would occasionally ask for help in procuring certain items in return for monetary reimbursement.  In addition, Lloydlyn might be willing to purchase particular items off PCs if said items take his fancy.

Christian Skoda

Chairman of the Merchants’ Guild

Christian is a short middle-aged man with a homely face. Yet, it is hard to not like the man, given his pair of smiling eyes and the warm genuine smile always on his face. He exudes a feeling of serenity and warmth even in the most disagreeable atmospheres.

Family and Life:

A very distant uncle of Deneir Skoda, Christian is married and have six children, four of which are twins, born to Gilsie Mayfair (Matron Maranisha’s cousin). He also has a large extended family, composed of a total of 5 siblings and 27 nephews and nieces. 

He is currently the chairman of the Merchants’ Guild. His daily responsibilities include overseeing the use of common resources by Guild members (eg. transportation channels etc.), brokering disputes between guild members and liaising with Sir Lloydlyn Sanmadran on behalf of the Guild on taxation issues (if only he could get Sir Sanmadran to even agree to a meeting).

Roleplaying Notes:

Christian would be a good source to contact for information regarding any mercantile issues or individuals operating a business. Christian might also need help on certain issues he comes across in running the Guild.

Well-written, goes well with the Trench-dwellers post. I My favourite part is the bewildering geometric concept that their cities are built around as a result of their architecture catering only to acoustics

I like the evolution of the guild given in the History section and I like the structure of this piece. Not going to vote now though, need more time to think.

Some typos lurking around eg. "its" is typed "it's"; on 3rd last line, extra "the" b/w "recover" and "it" etc. Go to Comment

Okay, decided on my vote. Was initially struggling because I see it to be at least worth a 4 but don't know whether to go higher or how high to go. But given that this is the result of the Old English challenge, I think I'm giving it 4.5 for being a very quality sub that answers the challenge and yet clearly Manfred has written subs that are more "wow" based on his own ideas, hence my vote.

A well-written unique undersea race. I thought it's appropriate to HoH this in light of the most recent quest.

I read this sub w/o reading any of the other ones in the set and it's still comprehensible to me. At this pt, I would say this is a solid sub that serves its purpose of describing a legendary personage well. However, I will vote upon revisit after reading the other subs.
