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.

Man-Eating Grapes

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.

The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
