Fine artisans are hard to find, and Sinnameron goes out of his way to be even moreso.

Special Equipment:

Gemsmith’s tools, an obscene amount of jewelry.


He’s short, even for a gnome, and tends to have a mildly crazed expression, unless discussing jewelry, when he looks obsessed.


Sinnameron is a master gemsmith.  One would be hard pressed to find an artesian better than he.  The fact that he is mad is a small price to pay. 

He had always had an affinity for gems and jewelry making, and proved to be a natural at creating enchanted jewelry.  He made several fine pieces, including the necklace Cat’s Eyes as a favor to a friend.  His greatest achievement was the fabled set of Stones of Sinnameron.  But, never very stable to begin with, Sinnameron became obsessed with gems, and eventually went completely mad.  He lives as a hermit now, constantly tinkering with his tools and stones.

Roleplaying Notes:

Sinnameron seems only mildly insane until the conversation turns to gems (which he will endevor to do), when the depths of his madness become apparent.

He would be a fine source for any enchanted jewelry, only he is not willing to part with anything.  He would have to be tricked or coerced, or stolen from.

Use caution if getting him to identify something.  You might not get it back.

He might ask the PCs to go find some rare gem for him, because he is getting too old to go hunt them down anymore.  (Although there is some speculation that he might be nigh immortal, as the result of one of his earlier projects.)  Whether or not he follows through on payment is another matter entirely. 

He would be willing to buy any type of jewelry or gems the PCs come across.  He might even try to steal it.

He's almost like a living version of Corvus, only with gems, not orbs.

I guess. Actually based him on a friend's character.

This one is an NPC, where Corvis is backstory and an excuse to have way too many magik items in a world.

Not bad, Wilecoyote types are easy to play.

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 the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from 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.
