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.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
