Barune The Blacksmith


Barune is nearly a mirror image of Thanen the brewer, but the mirror was broken.In his mid-forties he is heavy set with a muscular upper body, the outcome of many years of work at the forge. He also has a pot-belly, the outcome of many years at the tavern. His head is covered with greasy black hair and he sports a mid-length beard. Barune is never seen to laugh, except when something unfortunate happens to his fellow villagers.

Family and Life

Barune is a widower and has two teenage sons, Hethic and Turlo. Given his nature, people would suspect that his wife, Silana, met an untimely end at his hands, but it was the Cold Cough that claimed her. Some say it was her passing that made Barune so mean, but those who knew him before know it just made him worse. He is a negligent father at best, showing little interest in his sons. His son's actually prefer his aloofness as neither can stand him.

Barune hates most of the town notables, especially those more successful or influential then himself. This holds especially true for The Headsman. He also has an especially intense hatred for any outspoken women. He is one of Thalen's biggest customers.

Barune is a decent craftsman and fairly hard worker, but he is untrustworthy and is a bully. Women know not to visit his shop without an escort or two, even Emily. Some of the more vulnerable townspeople, such as Mydlin the helper, avoid his shop whenever possible. Since he is the only blacksmith within a day's travel, his behavior is somewhat tolerated.

Special Equipment

Barune owns a set of armor and weapons which he keeps hidden. Before settling down as a blacksmith, he travelled with a group of brigands and was not a passive member.

Roleplaying Notes

Barune is a competent blacksmith and will do good work if the money is there. If the PC's are obviously strong, he will not mess around with them. If they appear weak or desperate, then he will try and take advantage of the situation. If the PC's are looking to sell metal goods, etc, he will never pay even close to fair market value.

Interesting idea, but what Moonhunter said. Way too short. Go to Comment
30 Men of Nyir

valadaar's comment on 2006-12-28 07:27 AM
I like this 30 - In my mind it is 30 vikings :)

The individual descriptions are long enough to be useful and paint a compact but effective image.

Some of these guys are interesting enough to deserve specific writeups :) Go to Comment

Lacking in a lot of areas - give it a re-work.

I suggest listing 'two' histories - the one that is known by people, and then the real history.

The 'known' history can be evasive, incomplete and wrong, but the real history needs to be there. Go to Comment
The Shadow of Iron Hills
Items  (Transports)   (Non-Magical)
valadaar's comment on 2013-04-22 10:19 AM
I think is really cool - it may not be fleshed out (heh) but it paints the idea clear. It could be a mystery at first for PC's and perhaps later once they perhaps work for the group that has it, ends up being used by them.

This is an excellent location with realistic (!) economy, assuming you accept Smaug sized dragons :)

Did not see it when it came in, but I think this is a really good first post and an interesting take on a rebel group.

The plot hooks are pretty good as well! Go to Comment

Love the anecdotes attached to this one. A good solid adventure, with just the right level of detail to spark it.
