This small centrally located country town appears to be another sleepy hamlet deep in the farm country. The buildings are idyllic. The farmers appear to be more properous than most. Everything appears perfect. There is a secret here that even people in the know would not suspect.

Zaradee is a fine country town deep in the country, kind of in the middle of things, not too far from Caraguis. While not on the main routes, it is just a short detour from them. It is a town filled with nice provincial houses, surrounded by amber fields and tall corn. The next valley over, they make some very fine wine.

A few richer folk have country estates in the region, but none are closer to Zaradee than that of Scarabomantus, the Merchant from the Sands. He is here frequently. It is his favorite place to retreat to after a plot has been foiled. Here he experiments with his theories, of equality, justice and no class privileges without responsibilities.  Though he is insanely rich by local standards, he lives only slightly better than the locals.  He gives to the locals, allowing them to have better homes, more goods, and public works.  The locals adore him and would do anything for him… including hiding him, lying for him, jumping those that would harm him, and ignoring the little irregularities that sometimes occur at the villa. He is the first speaker, the defacto leader for the area.

Caraguis is a nearby village. It is a small world after all. The Don there is the man who has foiled most of Scarabomantus’s plots to date.

These three posts, put together make this a more dramatic location that two idylic villages out in the hinterlands.

The question I ask, should I actually make up a NPC post for The Don?

I would say Absolutely make an NPC sub for him.
It seems that he is a rather significant antagonist in Scarabomantus' life.

Once a year, the king steps down from his throne, and lives as a peasant for one day, the next day is the anniversary of his coronation, and it is celebrated by a reenactment of the ceremony. This is doubly beneficial, firstly, because the people are able to have the grand parade that always precedes the ceremony. Secondly, because the heir to the throne is given a day on the job every year. Although, apparently, the thought has not yet come to one of the kingdoms enemies, the assassination of the king during the renewal coronation would be a moral, as well as a political blow to the kingdom.
