NPC: Brother Jacob

Inside the border of the Great Forest rests Darkwood Abbey. The Abbey is guarded and
cared for by a sect of cleric/monks, known as the Order of the Cudgel. The order follows the texts of St. Cuthbert, stressing respect and faithfulness. Darkwood Abbey’s library is a treasure to the Kingdom of Khrullion. The curator of this treasure is the venerable cleric Brother Jacob.

Jacob takes great pride in his library and the special collections he has helped curate. Even though he is considered a master in many fields of study, Jacob still considers himself a student. He has a particular interest in the folklore of Khrullion, before it became a Kingdom.

Like many of his sect, Jacob tends to be a listener and is careful to be precise when he speaks. He is an advisor to the Arch Deacon and commonly sits in on council discussions that concern the town or Abbey. Jacob is a reasonable, level head man, but does have a tendency to hold a grudge.

NPC: Lady Wind

There are stories that dwarves tell their children, of a beautiful giant princess who visits their dwarven Hearthmother. The princess arrives in a floating cloud castle and spends many days visiting. Some say that the two women speak of ancient times long since past. Some say that if you stand outside the door to their chamber you will hear laughter. The kind of laughter that defines true friends.

Upon her departure the princess always leaves a gift for the dwarves. Something that she has found on her travels. The dwarves return this kindness and once gave a great gift of mithral. It is unknown what shape that gift took, but there has never been a greater gift of mithral given to anyone.

The tale of the cloud princess is something of a fairy tale. No dwarf of the youngest generation has ever seen her opalescent tower floating over the mountain. But, her story keeps getting told and many dwarf children look to the clouds hoping to catch a glimpse of her approach.
