Shona (female halfling Nob4): Elyl Shona is the Honorable Mayor
of Camiram and has been for the past several years. She's middle-aged,
with a mellow personality and a dry wit, but also quite capable
of quieting down a room full of concerned villagers to make herself
heard. She likes the quiet life and wants nothing more than peace
for the village. Camirams current problems with raiders concern
Flinder (male dwarf Exp9): Perhaps Camiram's most famous citizen,
Tam is the local blacksmith. He traveled a great deal in his youth
but has settled down to practice his craft. He's well known as the
most skilled smith in all the surrounding villages, although he's
quite modest about his abilities. Tam's more than capable of turning
out a masterwork piece now and then, and they fetch a fair price
in the marketplace. The dwarf also likes to drop in at the inn for
a drink or two after work each day.
Rose (female human Com4): The owner and proprietor of the Inn
of the Rose is a vivacious red-haired woman with sparkling blue
eyes and an easy smile. She lost her beloved husband Andres when
they had been married only two years and has never remarried (although
not due to lack of offers). Her two teenaged children, Dev and Kianna,
work at the inn. Ynda loves to chat and hears every bit of gossip
in the village.
Relles (male half-elf War5): Ekam Relles was appointed Sheriff
of Camiram several years ago and takes his duties quite seriously.
He's a seasoned warrior, having fought in other territories before
settling in the village. He also has a discerning eye, but he can
be somewhat rigid at times.
Skarm (male human Wiz3): The wizard Evet Skarm is fairly young
for a man of his skill in magic, only in his late twenties. He likes
Camiram because he's the most skilled wizard in the area (at least,
so far as he knows) and he spends his time studying, teaching his
apprentices, and performing minor magic for the village as needed.
Yost (female human Clr1 [Pelor/healer]): The priestess of Pelor
came quite suddenly into her duties when her mentor and superior,
Mika Pharos, was killed in one of the raids on an outlying farm
where he was tending to an injured man. Jinna feels somewhat overwhelmed
by her responsibilities at times, but maintains a brave front for
the sake of her people, praying daily to Pelor for the strength
she needs to carry on.
Serka (female human Mon3): Part of the answer to Jinna Yost's
prayers is Sister Serka, a monk from the Monastery of the Divine
Light. She has come to aid the village in its negotiations with
the barbarians and to assist the temple however she can. Her discipline,
intellect, and cleverness have proven invaluable to Jinna over the
past weeks. Two lower ranked monks (Mon1) accompany Serka.
Robel (male human Pal2): A lower-ranked knight, Naj Robel was
sent by the crown to aid in Camiram's negotiations and eventual
expansion. He and Sister Serka complement each other in that Robel
favors more direct, martial solutions while Serka prefers a more
peaceful and conciliatory position. Two newly made knights in the
service of the crown and Pelor (Pal1) accompany him.
Silver-Axe (male half-orc Bar3): The proud Sollek Silver-Axe
is the chief of the barbarians dwelling near Camiram. Although he
is a half-orc, Sollek is no fool, and he's willing to negotiate
with the people of the village rather than risk a war that may ultimately
do his people more harm than good. Although Sollek loves a good
brawl, he also wants what is best for his people. If cooperation
with Camiram is it, then that is what he will do. On the other hand,
if wiping out the village is what he thinks is best, he'll do that
just as easily.
the Veiled (female human Sor2): The mysterious Vosta is Sollek's
constant companion. She is a sorceress, feared and respected by
the people of her tribe for her abilities. She always wears veils
that cover her head and face, leaving only her smoky-colored eyes
visible. She speaks softly and defers to Sollek in most things,
but he turns to her for advice, particularly about omens and all
