The Hammer – The Builder for Unique Clients    NPCs  (Minor)   (Domestic/ Craft)

Some people call him Dr. Hammer. Some call him Mr. Hammer. Those with a flair for the melodramatic call him “The Hammer”. Others simply call him Hammer, much the way people call Madonna or Sting a single name.  He is the one you contact should you have a "unique building" need.

Ashala Neritha    NPCs  (Minor)   (Domestic/ Craft)

Standing at the prow of the ship, Ashala rejoiced at the strong winds catching her midnight-black hair - flapping it like a pennant.  The dark clouds ahead would have filled other seafarers with dread. Not Ashala.  The dark clouds and wicked winds were an invitation, a challenge.

"Steady as she goes!" she shouted over her shoulder to the shipmaster, "To the Eye!"

Astria Rayne    NPCs  (Minor)   (Domestic/ Craft)

Being an artisan first and a merchant second afford Astria a measure of wealth and independence.  She specializes in creating jewelry and art pieces with semi-precious/precious stones and metals.  Most of her income comes from works commissioned by the wealthy denizens of Widow’s Edge and the surrounding towns.  She also owns and operations a little curio shop. 

At first glance Astria appears to be just what she projects the artsy shop owner with a hello and smile for all that she encounter.  If one were to look closer they would see the energy that pulses around her, the alertness in eyes, the readiness to act at a moments notice.  Astria is more than a mere shop owner; she really returned to Widow’s Edge to investigate the attacks on the towns that started when she was a child and claimed the life of her father. During the daylight hours she works as jewelry/art maker but when darkness falls she slides into the night like others slide into clothes. Astria’s mode of dress when doing her nightly patrols is a black shirt, black pants and black suede boots. She also wears a black scarf and veil to hide her hair and face.  Her weapons of choice is the katana sword, which she wears, strapped to her back and a set of seven throwing knives that are secured to her upper right thigh by a leather strap.  During the daylight hours the weapons are cleverly hidden under her clothes.

THE COVEN
When the characters approach a clearing in the forest, they will see 4 ogres who are guarding, and preventing from escape, 4 human males, and 3 human females. The ogres will see the party and leap to attack. The females will scream "OUR SAVIORS!!" and run screaming straight across the currently forming battlefield, in between ogres and party members, to hide behind the rearmost party members. They will be safe there. The males will try to skirt the battle to the north side to join the women.

To the south, giants will be hiding in the thick underbrush until the party has engaged the ogres and then attack the most opportune target EXCEPT the ones that the females are next to.

It should be noted that the female commoners are not female commoners at all, nor are the male commoners actually male commoners. The female commoners are the hags, who have polymorphed themselves as the commoners in their stewpot to escape detection. The males skirting the battle are actually MORE ogres, the hags were in the process of polymorphing ALL the ogres into regular humans for ambush purposes. The REAL commoners are already dead, having found their way into the coven's cauldron for dinner.

The hags (the women) will position themselves near to any spellcasters in the rear first, and then near anyone else in the back of the fight. The ogres (the men) will wait until the hags shift form, and then attack first the rear folks, then shift into the melee.

It is possible that the characters, as they approach the ogres, will notice the giants in the bush, and be able to warn the others of the ambush.

GAME NOTES: If you sell the screaming women correctly, they will not even be suspected until it is too late. Therein lay the problem. This encounter is ESPECIALLY deadly to the rear eschelon of the party. It is entirely possible that the hags will finish off half the party before they even realize they have been duped. Caution is required if the game master wishes to avoid a TPK(total party kill).
