Rulers of Teiglin part 3

Blorinor Highhelm, Chieftain of the Dwarves of Stelmit, Baron of Stelmit
8th level Dwarf Warrior, alignment Lawful, age 105, gender male
Str 14, Int 12, Wis 10, Dex 10, Con 16,  Cha 12
AC -1, Move 60', hp 61, THAC0 9, Att 1 warhammer for 1d6+3,
Equipment: Plate Mail +2, Warhammer +2, Shield +1 +3 vs missiles, Ring of Regeneration.
Blorinor is one of the more aggressive and gung-ho leaders in Teiglin. He is frequently pushing for more action against the forces of Chaos, including another attempt to capture Erkhart. Although he can seem annoying to those barons on the borderlands, at least Blorinor is  willing to put his money, or at least his troops, where his mouth is. He often sends companies of 50 dwarf warriors into the Borderlands and other trouble spots to assist in the defence of Teiglin.
Description: Blorinor is 4'2", with a black beard woven into 3 plaits, ruddy complexion and a scar running down the left side of his face from the corner of his eye to the lower edge of his left ear. His voice is loud and booming, even when he is supposed to be quiet (think of a shortened Brian Blessed).

Corminius Twiceslain, Baron of Alvenir
7th level magic user, alignment Lawful, age 44, gender male
Str 7, Int 17, Wis 12, Dex 10, Con 14, Cha 10
Equipment: Bracers of Armour AC 5, Wand of Magic Missiles, Ring of Protection +2, Silver dagger
Spells: Detect Magic, Read Magic, Charm Person, Locate Object, Web, Water Breathing, Fly, Wall of Ice
Corminius is not popular among the other barons as he came to power by tutoring King Thestor in the magical arts. As far as other barons are concerned he is a jumped-up hedge wizard, not a true nobleman. However, Corminius seems to have risen above this and taken his baronial duties seriously. Corminius believes that magic and magic-users could contribute more to the kingdom of Teiglin and seeks to demonstrate this. Corminius has a specific interest in the borderlands and lands of Chaos, namely that he wants to locate and retrieve as many lost spellbooks as possible, especially those with unique spells written in them. One thing that Corminius is ashamed of is his phobia of large bodies of water - he refuses to get into boats or ships, and will always keep a safe distance from sea shores or river banks. He also always has a Water Breathing spell memorised just in case he falls into water.
Description: Corminius is 5'2", weighs 110lb and eschews the hackneyed wizards' robes for those of a wealthy merchant. He has pale skin, long dark hair pulled back into a ponytail.

Deserain of Rhondus, Sheriff of Thaldion
7th level cleric, alignment Lawful, age 50, gender female
Str 11, Int 14, Wis 17, Dex 10, Con 10, Cha 14
Equipment: Plate Mail +2, Mace +2, Shield +1, +2 vs missiles
Spells: CLW x2, Light x2, Bless, Hold Person, Speak with Animals, Cure Disease, Dispel Magic, Detect Lie
Deserain has been appointed the Sheriff of Thaldion by King Thestor. She is responsible for the running of the Barony of Thaldion which traditionally has been the King's own barony. She also happens to be the bishopess of Rhondus in Thaldion which has made some wonder whether it is sensible to let religious figures become political figures as well. However, she has managed to keep the two duties separate, and has not used her position of Sheriff to promote the church of Rhondus. She has proved herself to be a capable administrator. As a cleric of Rhondus (lawful god of defence and the home), Deserain is supportive of Garriol in Bauglir, but she has little patience for Delphinius whom she considers a poser and arrogant fool.
Description: Deserain is 5'0", 170lb and quite rotund. She has iron-gray hair tied up into a bun, and has a wide, wrinkly face that is not exactly beautiful but has a commanding, powerful quality to it. She does not often wear her armour, but wears her clerical cassock with her sheriff's chains of office along side her holy symbol unless she is expecting trouble.

  1. Nice! Very clean, clear-cut and functional--and you wedged-in some nice details as well. These NPCs are wonderfully well-done. Great work!

  2. Thanks. I intend to create more NPCs as my blog progresses. It's good to know that you like the format.
