Points of Light: The Splintered Lands
Notable Citizens of Fallcrest
Lord Warden of Fallcrest: Faren Markelhay- A balding, middle-aged human with a keen mind and a dry wit. He is a busy man andsees to local matters personally, so adventurers calling on him are likely to wait a long time for a short interview.
Nimozaran The Green- an elderly wizard who was once apprenticed to the last of the old guild mages. Nimozaran considers himself the “High Septarch of Fallcrest” and master of the guild, whose membership now includes only himself and a rather unpromising male halfling apprentice named Tobolar Quickfoot. Nimozaran expects any potential new guild members to pay a hefty initiation fee, and so far none of the few other arcanists living in or passing through Fallcrest have seen reason to join.
Orest Naerumar- Owner of what is considered the finest of Fallcrest’s retail establishments; dealing in gemstones, jewelry, art, and magic trinkets. He is a tiefling who displays impeccable mannersand discretion. Orest corresponds with relatives and colleagues in several towns and cities outside the Nentir Vale
Armos Kamroth- A miservale miser who has esatblished himself as a “self-styled” lord in Fallcrest. Armos is a brusque, balding man of about fifty who makes a show of loaning money in good faith and
exacting only what the law allows.
Serim Selduzar- This tiefling is clever and feigns good humor about his “present unfortunate
circumstances,” and he has a wickedly sarcastic streak to his wit. Serim claims to be the third son of a southern noble with little prospect to inherit.
Wisara Osterman- Owner of the Silver Unicorn once coined as “the Pride of Fallcrest,” charging high rates for its attentive service and well-appointed rooms. The recent opening of the Nentir Inn put a big dent in the Silver Unicorn’s business, and the stern halfling matriarch strongly disapproves.
Selarund Halfmoon- Onwer of the halfmoon trading house. Constnatly dispenses a never-ending stream of advice to his customers, such as, “It never rains but as someone gets wet!” or “A nail ain’t afraid of a hammer with no handle!” No one knows what he’s talking about most of
the time, but Selarund is more sly than he lets on and keeps a close eye on events all around the town.
Grundelmar- a zealous dwarf priest of Pelor who came to Fallcrest fromHammerfast and reestablished this old temple. Grundelmar is loud and opinionated, a real fire-breather who goes on and on about smiting evil wherever it might lurk.
Amara Azaer- In charge of house Azaer trade, whislt young she is quite sharp and doesn’t
miss an opportunity for profit in running the Azaer business.
High Priest Dirina Mornbrow- oversees two lesser priests and several acolytes—townsfolk who spend part of their day tending the temple. A woman of about sixty who is convinced of the superiority of Erathis’s dogma, and disappointed that more people in Fallcrest don’t pay proper reverence to “our city’s patron god.”
High Priest Ressilmae Starlight- Leader of Moonsong Temple, a wise and compassionate elf who finished adventuring decades ago and retired to a contemplative life. He is a musician of great skill who happily tutors the local children, even those who are poor and can’t afford to pay for their lessons.
Lannar Thistleton- Owner of Fallcrest stables, The halfling is an excellent source
of rumors, since he sees the travelers coming or going by the roads. He is a friendly fellow of about forty, with a large brood of children at his home out in the countryside.
Sergeant Murgeddin- a dwarf veteran who fought in the Bloodspear War and was present at the Battle of Gardbury, where Fallcrest’s army was defeated. he is leader of the detachment stationed at the Knights Gate. A friendly drink goes a long way toward loosening Murgeddin’s tongue about that long-ago war.
Par Winnomer- Owner of the Ble Moon alehouse, he is a nervous, easily flustered fellow of fifty or so named . The true genius behind the Blue Moon is the halfling brewmaster…
Kemara Brownbottle- She is happy to let Par fret about running the taphouse, while she spends her time perfecting her selection of ales and beers.
Teldorthan Ironhews- He is a garrulous old fellow who spends his time trading stories with his customers with a pipe clenched in his teeth, while his apprentices (two of whom are his sons) do the work. Make no mistake—Teldorthan is a master armorer, and under his supervision his apprentices turn out work of exceptional quality.
Irena Swiftwater- Matriach of the Swiftwater Clan, she is a sharp merchant who passes herself off as an absent-minded reader of fortunes and maker of minor charms.
Kelson- The unsavoury owner of Fallcrests cheapest and coarsest drinkhole The Lucky Gnome Taphouse.
Nimena Sandercot- Onwner of Sandetcot Provsions, Fallcrests largest general store. the widow of thelate and unlamented Marken Sandercot. Nimena puts on an air of rustic charm, but when it’s time to talk “backroom business” she is ruthless, grasping, and greedy.
