Fredius D'Amar

By:

He is a merchant of fine wines and the only source for sparkling wines in the region. His formal politeness makes him seem like a friend.

Description
Human Male Early 40s
His darker skin and large dark mustache always show him as a foreigner. To compound that, he wears Amarian robes despite the colder local climate (Antioch). (To be honest, he wears warmer clothes under them).

History
He is a merchant of fine wines and due to his connections the only provider of sparkling wines in the region.  After working with a caravan company, he moved to Antioch and brought his savvy and contacts with him. His shop has made him a good living.

His wife is a beautiful local woman even after children. He has eight daughters and two sons (4 sets of twins) that are equally beautiful with a touch of the exotic. He is arranging good marriages for them, into more prosperous houses. The sons are still deciding who will run the business.

Roleplay Notes
Fredius is a master of social nicety and politeness. He could teach many a noble the art of manners. Despite his formal politeness making him seem distant, he is a friendly man… who sees everyone as his friend, and his enemies as people to be forgiven.

Fredius does have a less public face. He is a man who never forgets a slight and will hold a grudge for decades. He will always get even, never more… never less. He is mostly a man who wishes to socially embarrass those who have slighted him, but he might hire a few dock toughs to bring the point home.

He is kind of random if you don't follow the link to the shop. Together they make sense and give you an idea of what is going on.

A solid NPC. Kind of between a 30 entry and the more detailed NPC writeups.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
