Brief FRA-style blurbs of local Waterdhavians.
Entres are taken from a loose 1E - 3E timeframe.
These NPCs are obviously from my personal Realms; non-canonity abounds! "Published" NPCs that I've altered have their original references noted. Speaking of, I've also included reference notes for various minor official NPCs (published or "Ed Says,") for those who can use more Waterdeep lore but aren't interested in any of my natterings.


==================================================


Aaletha Emmara Raeena Margaster (CN HF Aris)
A noble of House Margaster. Perennial loser of the "Lady Frost" contest at Mother Tathlorn's Annual Snowbound Festival. "Letha" is well known among Waterdeep's high society for her scathing tongue, loud tantrums and black temper. She fled the city in Eleasias of 1370, eloping with the noble Bragaster Raventree and several stolen family heirlooms, but recently returned (without Bragaster or the missing items).

Abaldar Bambrusk (NE HM Aris2/War4/T2)
The Golden Captain. Patriarch of the Bambrusk merchant clan. The Bambrusks, much like their distant blood relatives the Urmbrusks, are plentiful in the eastern parts of Alaron and Gwynneth. They are allied to House Hawkwinter through the marriage of Lord Eremos Hawkwinter to the lady Kyrin Bambrusk. The Hawkwinters regard them as lesser, "rural" cousins, but admire their skill at fighting and forestry. Abaldar divides his time between Waterdeep and Alaron, and is often found at sea aboard the caravel Gloaming Sails, flagship of his small merchant fleet. He specializes in trading elaborate Moonshaen tapestries and floor carpets for good steel weaponry (swordblades, halberd heads, arrowtips, etc.). It is whispered that much of the Bambrusk fortunes were made through supplying Northmen raiders and Moonshaen highwaymen with weaponry, but such tales are best told outside the hearing of Abaldar or his family members.

Abbast el Ammarkhan (N earth genasiM Bar2/F6)
The Red Colossus, The Unbeatable Abbast. A native of Calimshan. Perhaps the most popular "dare-all" (martialist) at the Field of Triumph. These days he prefers unarmed contests of wrestling and brute strength, but in his prime was one of the greatest bloody-blades in Waterdeep. Owns a masterful suit of gold and red mail gifted by the Lord Baerom Thunderstaff, a highcoin patron.

Abradan Lardahar
A master weaponsmith of Silverymoon. Renowned as the crafter of Athar's Shining Blades, a collection of seven masterwork blades (four longswords, two long daggers and a single broadsword) highly sought-after by collectors. The blades are unenchanted (though they would take one easily), with a natural +1 to hit and damage. Their real value lies in their craftsmanship and in their appeal to collectors. Indeed Lord Hawkwinter, owner of the largest single collection, proudly displays his three Lardahar-blades (Righteous Cleave, Knight's Honor and Solemn Duty) on the wall of his private study. Each weapon is etched with intricate details of the life and legend of Athar the Shining Knight, father of the current Open Lord Piergeiron, and all seven are hilt-wrapped in Abradan's trademark white dragonhide.

Adaphra
The Golden Smile. Festhall downdancer, named for the impressive rows of glittering false teeth lining her mouth. Her originals were lost due to the blows of a brutally sadistic Amnian merchant. In return she took his life, his gaudy gold rings (melted down and re-fashioned into her current opulent dentition) and his vitals, which she also had dipped in gold and wore around her neck for a time until her employers claimed they were making customers ill, and demanded she remove them.

Halberdant Thunderstaff (N HM Aris3/F2)
An elderly noble of House Thunderstaff. The "High Helm" (chairman emeritus) of the Farwanderers Society. Known in his younger days as "Thundering Hal," captain of the Lances of Long Death, a mounted mercenary company. Halberdant has spent his waning days (and great amounts of the Thunderstaff coffers) importing his favorite sweets and liquors from the lands around the southern Inner Sea.

"Halfling" Marn
Named for his short stature. Some believe him to be an actual Hin, attempting to pass as human (for what reason, no one can say). Carries the golden filigree chain known as Eleburr's Elegant Denial (1x/day when wrapped around a lock, latch or handle, secures the opening as a hold portal spell. It can also "float in midair" upon command when released by a hand, and so can be used to hang things in mid-air; nothing heavier than a lantern or a broadsword, though).

Halvas "Halfhand" (CN HaM T6)
A member of the Shields of Snail Street adventuring fellowship. A rather tall, thin, brawling bravo with a love of swordplay, plentiful wine and good practical jokes (even those played on him). Dreams of seeing the halfling lands of yore (such as the Hin princedom of Phalorm or the southern realm of Meiritin) arise again. Wields Swiftsting, an enchanted shortsword of quickness +2 that once belonged to the Hin adventurer Fletcher Lynklyn and to the watch officer Ylarell.

Hambro Blackweave
A senior member of the Watchful Order (holds the office of Accomplished Master of Conjurations). Lean and rat-faced, bright-eyed. Lost a leg to a summoned devil that broke free of its' confining circle. Garrulous and affable in nature which, along with his habit of buying mead and wine for his fellow Ordermen, accounts for his position more than any superior magical acumen. Constantly dreams of summoning and questioning denizens of the Upper and Lower Planes, but lacks the nerve to do so after his maiming.

Hammadan Hornshelm (LN HM F4)
An Entever (captain) of the Sacred Swords (the religious order tasked with defending the doors of the House of Heroes). A former mercenary and gladiator in the Blood Pits of Manshaka. Broad-shouldered and ill-tempered. Proficient with the long sword and long spear.

Vaerghul the Comforter (NE HM P of Shar)
Old, wizened man. Leans heavily on a dark length on ironwood to walk, but is capable of surprising displays of strength and temperment when challenged. An Assuager of Shar (present at all funerals and times of sorrow. Soothes and comforts the grief-stricken. Said to whisper the words of the Lady of Loss and – more darkly – to feed on the turbulent emotions of the bereaved like a vampire on blood). One of the few clergy of the Dark Maiden to openly walk the halls of the Palace. Was present at the funerals of Zelphar and Lhestyn Arunsun, and at the mourning when Piergeiron's father fell to the red wyrm Kistarianth.

Vaerlith
Master of the Doors at the House of Wonder. Stout, middle-aged, fair hair and blue-grey eyes. Well known for his frequent useage of the oath (whether in frustration, amazement or appreciation), "By Mystra's Seven Secret Spells!"

Valadorn Moonstar
A noble of House Moonstar [b.980/d.1062]. Half-elf. Third child of Lunaven "Moonstar" and Yhauldyth. Joined the newly-established Naval Guard in 998DR, retired from active duty in 1011DR. Achieved success in merchant shipping (widely credited as the founder of the Moonstar merchant fortunes). Married Sharthaea Mornglum [b.992/d.1057] in 1009DR. Two children – Mhaestar and Lunaeveene.

Valandro
A blackrobe (magister) and Palace mage of Waterdeep (served under both Lhestyn and Piergeiron), whose name now graces Valandro's Study, a small, quiet parlor deep in Piergeiron's Palace. The only furnishings in the room are two well-upholstered chairs, a carved rosewood desk, and an open guestbook and inkwell sitting upon it. The book is a magnificent tome edged in ornaments of the purest gold leaf, with leaves of purple vellum. A guard is stationed here at all times to keep passerby from inscribing their names in the ledger or otherwise disturbing the pristine pages. The reason for this is any such contact with the book counts as expending a charge from a wand of wonder (a wild magic oddity that only began erupting after the events of the Time of Troubles). Why Palace officials keep such a dangerous item out on display is that the tome is actually the key to a portal, centered on the room itself, which leads to the fortified "emergency" vaults located deep within Mount Waterdeep, something only senior Palace officials and the Lords themselves know (scribing Valandro's sigil on the blank vellum is the trigger, and the only such contact that does not end in wild magic surge).

Varadhia
Half-elven sword-she. Cropped red hair, sullen blue eyes. Wielded shortsword, dagger and thrown darts. Was employed in the High Road War as the personal guard of the Master Stoneworker Buirholdan Skordar. She was slain by the assassin Jarek Mercyblood shortly before the guildhall barricades were stormed by the forces of the Carpenters and Roofers guild.

Pfft. As if anyone would ever waste five good NPCs on the Crusader class

Of course, there is always "Those Who Dream of the Knife" (a quintet of former Bhaal cultists turned to [turned on by] Talona's "pain is pleasure" mantra, who specialize in horridly ornate [but undeniably artistic] mutilations and ostentatious blade-killings [in addition to the whole 'poisons and plagues' thing]; led by the disgraced Elturelian noble Dauskethrel "The Ill That Abounds") and The Leth-Lads (five devotees of the infamous Talonar Hauldron Lethur, raised by him from foundlings orphaned by his diseased devotions along the Sword Coast caravan routes; it should be noted that three of the 'Lads' – Yasthandra, Mierra [MEE-Ra] and Dulskarra – are actually Lasses).

And the shadow wyrmling Umbertongue, who has in their thrall five were-vorr which range out from their lair under the Greypeaks in the waning days of plagues and epidemics, down the Delimbyr vale, seeding a second wave of infections and hounding those of other faiths who would thwart the will of the Mistress of Many Sufferings (the chromatic fever of 1351DR remains a particularly favorite triumph).

EDIT: Upon further consideration, I think "Those Who Dream of the Knife" should be for either Bhaal (still) or converted to the worship of Loviatar. Call this group instead The Hand Envenomed (The Society of Syrup and Sting), a group of wastrel nobles, led by the disgraced Elturelian noble Dauskethrel "The Ill That Abounds," who enjoy inflicting poisonings and plagues upon the poorer citizens of Elturel, and seek ways to breed a loyal force of were-rat servitors (not that they would ever consider becoming such "disgusting creatures" themselves).





All seems reasonable! Really like the were-vorrs who amp up the waning days of an epidemic. And Umbertongue is a great name, although would like to know the "real" name too.

MISC'LLANEA
May or may not have anything to do with Waterdeep or NPCs. Probably don't.
(yes, this is what I spend my free time on; don't judge )


==================================================


"The Moor-men are gathered for the fight / When the furze-flames burn all through the night"
        -Common saying among the settled folk of the lands north and west of the High Moor, brought to larger audiences through Nathuum [Nah-THOOM]'s 1325DR travelogue, Expeditions Into the Evermoors and Gaverstaff's 1329DR play "The Last Three Daybreaks of Larruskeep" (specifically Act II, "Dawn O'er the Southern Battlements")


"Clear and cold the moon shone
O'er many a heap of lifeless flesh and bone
Now just a lonely field
Now only desolation yield
Where once the flower of Man was sown
All goodliness hath long since flown
"
        - "The Battle of Flamerule Nine-and-Ten"
        Aumereene of Waterdeep, 1334DR


Down Amidst
"Down amidst the tranquil deeps
Where sea-maids and selkie play
There the goddess her watery court keeps
And you'll hear Dread Umberlee say

"Come to me sailor, come to me tar
Down where the sea-maids and selkies are
Down where the chanties ring
Down where the lash ne'er sting
And down where delights lie fit for a king"

But of her words you must not shere
To any man or maid you meet ashore
For then they all might come to hear
and down amid the tranquil deeps
Disappear
"


When Umberlee Came to Queldore
With a curl of Her finger
And a cup of Her hand
Her thundrous Wrath came to the Land
She came, She took, She did not linger

For Umberlee had come to Poor Queldore

And no more, no more
Upon that shore
Was e'er heard of Lost Queldore

And now, and now, so far from shore
(Forty fathoms, 'tis said, or more)
Doth rest the ruins of Drownt Queldore



The Sisters of Light and Dark
"Selûne in her house of honor, Shar in her garden awry
One shining white and wondrous, a work so true in the sky
And one wrapt in darksome murk, where troubles and treasons lie
"
        The Quabbarith Lorala [Kä-Bar-RETH Lore-ALA], book of holy poetry
        -Narmeshkur of Iliphanar, 1175DR
(from which comes the common phrases "in [their] garden awry" (an expression for one suffering from sadness or depression), and "[thereby/that way leads] where troubles and treasons lie," often used to refer to actions of roguery and ill-plotting; as well as in terms critical of the local authorities)

Markos Thaunharp
A noted Chondathan harpist and adventurer. Famed for escaping the infernal clutches of the Hades Hounds of the Dolordelve. The prize he gained that day, the spell-slept Netherese princess Baelardhra of the Bountiful Bells, later became his wife and mother of his three sons Ruvheld, Torghus, and Gost. His treasures, accumulated favors and the proceeds of a rather popular chapbook based on his adventures were all spent in a futile effort to cure the wasting disease that eventually claimed Baelardhra's life in the winter of 1359DR. He gave his last remaining possessions – his sword, shield and enchanted cloak – to his sons and rode south to the Tashlutan gates of the House of Night's Embrace, temple of the goddess Talona, whom he believed came to claim a long-overdue life-debt on his wife. His fate after that is not recorded.

Ruvheld Thaunharp
Eldest son of the noted Chondathan harpist and adventurer, Markos Thaunharp. Brother of Torghus and Gost. A member of the Tyrran Order of the Lawful Hammer. Grey-streaked black hair, dark eyes and beard. Cut off his right hand in ritual mutilation. Self-confident, decisive, willful. Confrontational and irritable if his advice or commands are not heeded. Bears The Ardsword (a sword +1, flametongue), his father's weapon of choice.

Torghus Thaunharp
Middle son of the noted Chondathan harpist and adventurer, Markos Thaunharp. Brother of Ruvheld and Gost. A paladin of the Tyrran Order of the Lawful Hammer. Tall, dark-eyed, clean-shaven. Compassionate and emotional, but tends to frame all arguments and decisions in the context of Law and Chaos. Carries his father's shield, Behiraust (a shield +3, grants protection from evil 20' radius 1x/day; emblazoned with the Thaunharp crest, a white harp on a green field, with six point-upright arrows replacing the harpstrings).

Gost Thaunharp
Youngest son of the noted Chondathan harpist and adventurer, Markos Thaunharp. Brother of Ruvheld and Torghus. Follows the goddess Tymora, unlike his Tyrran brothers. Fair skin and hair, dancing green eyes. Smaller than his brothers. Quick-witted, eager, brave to the point of foolishness. Wears The Smouldering Hades Cloak (a hooded cloak +2; fire shield, either version 2x/day; smoky, acrid fog cloud 1x/day), fashioned by his mother from the pelts of the infernal Hades Hounds of the Dolordelve.

AJA Posted - 13 Mar 2020 : 00:38:13

Athammus
Master of Broadbrick House (The Free Foundling's Home), one of the city orphanages funded by the Lords. Broad-faced, red-bearded, wide-shouldered, pleasant-looking. Soft-spoken, sings in a moderately impressive baritone. The aim of the House (located on Drover's Street north of Sahtyra's Lane, Castle Ward) is to keep foundlings fed and clothed long enough until they can be passed off to a guildsman or to the Goldenfields for apprenticing or (for the older children) taken in and trained by the Guard. Priests of those faiths who don't have established orphanages in the city also come by from time to time, sent by a vision to retrieve a child for their flock.

Athlannan Yultune (N HM Illu12)
A senior member of the Watchful Order (holds the office of Accomplished Master of Illusionry). Tall and thin with large, almost elf-like eyes the color of midnight. He sports long silver hair bound back in an ornate braid and a tiny wisp of a moustache, and is a noted patron of the arts, especially the theatre. He carries several wands of an offensive nature up his sleeves at all times, for those who are not impressed by his delusory arts. A confidant and long-time companion (and rumored lover) of the bard Ammathan Var.

Athosar the Old (LG HM Exp5/P5 of Lathander)
Prior of the Inner Chapel. Elderly and in failing health, although still sharp of both memory and wit. Athosar has held the same position under the two previous high priests of the Lathanderite temple. Widely regarded as knowledgeable, diplomatic, and a dangerous political enemy of anyone opposed to the temple. [ Source: City of Splendors - Who's Who In Waterdeep, p.62. Name given. Additional detail by me. ]

Aubraera Glynn (LN water genasiF P8 of Umberlee)
Aubraera is the Wavechantress Most High of the rising Deepspires, cathedral of Umberlee. She has very light, almost colorless skin that reveals a webwork of vibrant azure veins underneath. Wide black eyes, prominent lips, and long, straight blue-black hair that seems continually damp and shining. Her normal speech is often difficult to understand, sounding somewhat slurred, although she has a crystal-clear, enchanting singing voice. It is her duty to lead her fellow Wavechanters (a sect of the Umberlant temple) in hymn and song every day, praising Unfathomed Umberlee for her dominance of the waters, and to sing of that day when the stars are under the sea.

The Augurates of Savras
Arcana, Fate, Knowledge, Law, Spells. The five appointed patriarchs of the church of Savras. Each oversees a separate dominion of the Lord of Divination. The best known of The Five are Aulthoon of Neverwinter, the Augurate of Arcana, and Tsonjhus Aoon [SAUN-Juss Ay-YOON] of Durpar, the Augurate of Fate.

MISC'LLANEA
(That's a fancy name for 'random nonsense')
May or may not have anything to do with Waterdeep or NPCs. Probably don't.

==================================================


Myrkul's Spit
An incandescent crimson sauce made from the ground root of the Abyssal gleecra plant; a lower-planar delicacy known to only a handful of educated adventurers and mages and the most high-coin of gourmands; any more than a thimbleful can cause grevious harm to ingesters, as the mage Thulbass found out as his stomach – and other lower organs – erupted in unstaunchable bleeding ulcers; certain dragons are known to be quite intrigued by the stuff, although they, too, can only bear so much – but observing someone enjoying more than a usual amount of gleecra-sauce is a great way to suss out dragons in shapechanged form (or disguised devil or demon – beware!); A small amount of Myrkul's Spit is also an acceptable substitute material component for a cloudkill spell.

Yellow Thaum (Sune's Sunny Sorrow)
Thaumur was favored of Sune, and as so he always ran along the sunny side of the hedge-row and the wooded eaves and the village lanes, until one day he was tricked by the deceitful drow elves to run along the dark side of a hedge widdershins, and so he was never seen again thereafter. And Sune wept for his loss and her tears fell upon the sunny side of the hedge and sparkled there in the sun, and that is why to this very day the Yellow Thaum grows under hedge and shrub but only blooms on the sun-ward facing side. The honeyed nectar of the tear-shaped flowers brews a sweet mead that is highly prized among the gnomes and Hin.

Rosemilk
A "wizard-weed" (a plant altered for specific sorcerous purposes). Prefers temperate, sunny, well-drained soils. Forms pale purplish flowers in dense cylindrical spikes which can produce a nectar that tastes as roses smell and can be tinctured (alongside common wine or clear spirits and powdered cedar-apple rust) into a healing draught (1d2 HP of any non-magical damage once per 24-hr period), that is also commonly said to give hair volume and richness, and to promote general good health.

Gaeban Redharpin (CG #189;EM F11/W6)
Former leader of the Knights Errant adventurers, now retired. Lord of Huntleign Barony in the Moonshaes, and a Knight of the Realm. His slender, wiry frame is just beginning to show the signs of his new sedentary lifestyle (especially around his waist), but he still moves with the fluid grace of a deadly swordsman. His boyish, disarming face belies his age, but it is now set off by a nose that has been broken more than once over his long adventuring career. His eyes are hazel and almond-shaped, the most obvious sign of his elvish blood. For many years Gaeban dyed his hair jet-black using cantrips, but he has since let it go back to its original reddish-copper color. He has also recently begun growing a moustache and well-trimmed beard in the fashion of the Moonshaen nobility.
        One of the original members of the famed Knights Errant adventuring company, though it was many years before he actually became leader of the fellowship. Under his leadership the Knights spent much time in the Moonshaes, and their exploits lead to King Tristan crowning them Knights of the Realm. After the deaths of his cohort Zanthus and his lover Dichara, Gaeban left the Knights and retired from adventuring. He returned to the Moonshaes and was soon granted a title and a barony by Queen Alicia, Tristan's daughter. He now lives in Redharpin Manor with his wife Uthelren (a towering, flame-haired daughter of a Northman chieftan), their three daughters (Aleena, Gwenalyne and Alustrae), and a number of pureblooded Moonshaen staghounds. He is close with the Queen, and will act as an unofficial advisor and envoy when the need arises.
        During Gaeban's adventuring career the one thing that often stood between himself and certain death was Elanvalae, a plain and battered longsword of minor enchantment. His longbow +2 is now in the hands of Lheslaynn (CG HF Ra2), a promising young ranger and his daughter by the deceased Waterdhavian watchcaptain Dichara Stormheart. Aside from a number of miscellaneous rings, potions, and spell scrolls, his only other magical item of note was a frost-blue luckstone that was lost from around his neck during a battle with sahuagin raiders (the same battle that gained him a deep scar along the left side of his neck and collarbone) and is now presumed to lie in the depths of the Sea of Moonshae.

Gaince "Easy Gains" Broon
Former Ward Civilar of Dock Ward (1363 - 1365DR). His tenure as Ward Civilar became infamous for widespread corruption and protection rackets. Brought to trial by the black-robes. Sentenced to the Undermountain.

Galan Glengerald
Eccentric entrepreneur. Tried to turn Gilded Apples (exactly what they sound like) into a status symbol for the noble and highcoin circles, claiming that possession of such an item was how the ancient elven realms of the North decided their kingships. His venture found little purchase among his target audiences and he was found dead in his chambers, 1361DR, hog-tied with a gilded apple stuffed into his mouth. The inevitable result, it is said, of money owed to one crimelord or another (the elf one, some whisper). Amusingly enough, after his death his creation did gain some measure of popularity among young and jaded nobles at their feasts. This fad ended quite abruptly in late 1363DR, after Ruldaer Thongolier attempted to shoot a gilded apple off of the head of Emerinthé Roaringhorn, with tragic results.

Galdelf Mluredar
Priest of Lathander. Using the pen-name Melflas, wrote a number of well-known "religious romances" (lurid chapbooks with titles such as Priests in Passion, Vestments of Fire, Altar Blessings, The Dawnlord's Desire, and The Priestess and the Patrician, that were all the rage in the early 1350s). Died of a coughing illness in the winter of 1359DR.

Galfaera the Golden
Wrote the memoir Things I Shouldn't Say (1368DR). "Think about the things you want to accomplish in life; odds are, they're all easier attained with the judicious application of a sharp blade."

Aldessra Oln
Petite, plain-looking. An always-alert woman of icy calm and calculation. Can cozen and charm with the best festhall girls. Selling shares in "an extended voyage of exploration" to sail north "beyond the Endless Ice to the habitations of the gods and the idylls of the celestials." Half a dozen ships, risk unknown. Boasts of a full complement of workers-of-Art "skilled in traditions both fulgent and refulgent." Interested investors are advised to seek Aldessra at her lodgings at The Lord's Respite (Street of Silks, Castle Ward).

Aldyn
Seller of snails. Fills his baskets at the Waymoot each morning and walks to Trades Ward, peddling his wares to laborers and goodwives. His sales cry is an instantly-recognizable series of impressive barks and cackles which he claims are derived from the language of the dog-men of Amn, allegedly great lovers of snails (he will, if allowed, go on in great detail about the kobolds of the southern lands, almost all of which is flummery created whole cloth in his head). His baskets, which hang by chains from a green-painted yoke over his shoulders, contain a collection of very large snails, all freshly boiled, with each shell being closed by a seal of creamy yellow butter, heavily sprinkled with parsley (one copper a handfull).

Aleena Elvenblood (LG #189;EF F)
A civilar (captain) of the Griffon Guard (North Wing). Descended from an ancient Ardeep moon elven clan (House Hlallaranth [H'LOL-A-Ranth] Banners-of-Burnished-Leaves). Wiry build, rough highly-freckled skin. Greenish-grey eyes, broken nose, shoulder-length auburn hair. Rides the griffon named Black Tantrum.

Algedusk Arcrimmor
(AL-Jay-Dusk ARR-Crimmor ['crimmor' rhyming with 'nimoar']) Master (captain) of the Wave Azer ('azer' being Tharsan dialect for 'azure'; sail-sigil is of three heavy swells to the dexter, crowned with two golden anchors – one slanted down to the south-west, the other down to the south-east). Short, broad-chested, bowlegged. Scarred and blustering. Lost an arm to the golden savages of Naraman (su-monsters / a trio of verdant isles to the west of Nimbral). Lost four front teeth to the Velenese Watch, but he doesn't complain about that nearly as much. The Wave Azer currently hires out to concerns seeking trade voyages to the New Lands of Maztica, and has actually survived two such trips so far.

Ali ibn-Dakimh (LG HM Enc7)
A native of Calimshan. Fled in exile to Cormyr and to the War Wizards. He currently poses as an adjutant to Thrombur, the Cormyrean envoy (ambassador) to Waterdeep and the North, a cover for his true mission as the eyes and ears of the court wizard, Vangerdahast. Favors robes of a deep blue hue, and is more commonly known as "Southern Aleric" or "Blue Aleric" (Aleric being the northern translation of his Calishite name). He worships Anachtyr, Azuth, and Mystra. [ Source: "The Reports From Undermountain," Steven Schend, Dragon Magazine #227, p.16. Name/Description/Stats given. Additional detail by me. ]

Daeren of Ordulin (LN HM P of Kelemvor)
Longlantern, The Walker in Shadows. Perhaps the most visible and well-known of the faithful of the Lord of the Dead. Daeren's daily devotions take him along the entire length of the wall of the City of the Dead and back, as he traces the boundaries of the city burial grounds and ceaselessly intones the last rites and hymns designed to assuage the suffering of any restless souls trapped within the walls.

Daglath Halzrimmar
Master of the Lance at the Field of Triumph (this title was once "Master of the Lance and Steel," but with the explosion of popularity in jousting the responsibilities were split, with the Master of Bouts [née Steel] assigned solely to the digladiates and armed contests). Commonly called "Old Dag" or "the Dagger" (due to his long, rail-thin frame). Sparse grey hair, watery blue eyes. Talkative and demonstrative. As noted, his responsibilities include arranging the tilts at the Field, assaying and procuring talent, and setting the schedules. He makes a tidy side-profit from moneyed patrons wishing to ensure their glory-rider earns a spot at a particular joust, but draws a line at promising a rider meets or avoids any specific opponent.

Daizhauna (LN HF W)
Eldest daughter of the Selûnite priests Ameatha Lhauralynn and Mazambar the Ishaari. Tall, slender and dusky-skinned like her father. Has middling-length black hair and long-lashed brown eyes. Currently apprenticed to the mage Hlannadar of High Street, as both houseward (when he is away aboard the Fleetwind) and student. Has as her familiar the bronze-eyed raven, Craglorn.

Dalcimer "Silvernote" (NG HM B13)
A stocky, broad-shouldered man with a hawk-nose and the olive complexion and piercing copper eyes common to the peoples of the eastern Sea of Fallen Stars. Has a singing voice equal to his nickname. He often has a serious, authoratative air about him, and possesses a stubborn streak, often unwilling to bend or change his views and principles. Around friends, his true nature shows through, including a love of the wonder and whimsy of magic instilled in him by his mother, something he still carries with him even though he has little aptitude for magic. Dalcimer has recently become famed in the North as "The Hunting Harper," for his tireless battle against the marauding giant and goblinkin of the region, and immortalized in song as "The Last Blade of Insilgard," for being the sole survivor of that doomed Harper stronghold. A former member of the Knights Errant and one-time fiancee of Belshareen Azurean. Currently travelling the Heartlands with the half-elven ranger Iladan Elaewyn and the sorceress Ceryna Flamehair. Bears a blood grudge against Sulgrivvyn Zost (the Chosen Storm of Talos and onetime "Ice Bear" of the North) for the death of his mentor, the Senior Harper Nevryn Hawkenhelm.

Dalziel Vreldorn (LE HM Aris5/Sor5)
A southern socialite. Plentif of Brazangulf, Oversword of the Hunnabar Rocks. Claims to be heir to the throne of the city-state of Ormpur. Championed by the Cragsmere, Lanngolyn and Hiilgauntlet families, who have introduced him into Waterdeep's social circles and are pushing the Lords to recognize him as rightful heir of that Shining Sea city-state. His last remaining merchantman, the Leeward Lareighn, was lost on a merchant venture to the Middle Moonshaes in the Spring of 1372DR, ruining his coffers and forcing the young Vreldorn to sell off a number of personal possessions to maintain his lavish lifestyle.

ARAUMYKIN
"Caffeine has yet to settle on my brain, so take this for the sleep-deprived babble it may be..." (Steven Schend)

==================================================

In some locations of the High Forest are found eerie, sentient beings that display strange and unusual powers. These inscrutable entities take differing shapes and speak in differing voices, but their method of interacting with others seems to be the same; in the manner of the local beast-cults, they call to and recruit followers and helpers from a wide variety of races, both civilized and monstrous, and provide them with powers or knowledge in return for attention and....devotion.

These creatures have come to be known as Araumykin, for their unknown origins and generally fungoid appearance and their presence in the wooded expanse of the High Forest, beneath which the great other, the inscrutable fungus-like Araumykos, lairs and thrives and occupies much of the deep ways there.

Are they spores or children of Araumykos? Corrupted or demented offshoots? Envoys to an alien surface world?

Or are they perhaps the flickering remnants of a pantheon of fungal-based folk? Or sentient chrysalis from which will one day be born a new assemblage of godlings?

If these 'Araumykin' themselves know, they aren't saying.


Mara Mora, Lord of a Thousand Chambers
Lairs in a damp, rotting, surprisingly warm and humid ravine where a dazzling array of mushroom and vegepygmy thrive. Has the appearance of a giant common morel. A cult god of mazes, secrets, dungeon windings and dimensional pathings. Some sages also whisper that Mara Mora is more the child or waiting vessel of the dead god Moander than anything to do with Araumykos.

Mara Mora is also served by numerous campestri who periodically run out and situate themselves around an individual and begin "singing". This mushroom ring then suddenly forms the opening to a gate to an unknown destination and the individual is sucked through unexpectedly. Exactly where individuals go, or even if its the same place each time, is unknown.

Lortham of the Opened Eyes
Commonly found in rill-side dells where the air and water are both sickly sweet, among ranks upon ranks of waving sharp-sided fern and great multi-colored undulations of moss and mushroom. Takes the form of the opened and horridly trypophobic seed pod of a monstrous and malevolent lotus plant. Grants dreamy languor and cosmic secrets to worshipers and demands mindless obedience and bloody sacrifice to all others.
(https://imgur.com/t3TEB7o)

Master Melf
Appears as a towering mushroom, alit from within with brilliant, pulsing (breathing) glows of magic and power. A great irradiant presence in an otherwise gloomy clearing, carpeted with layers of leaves, orange and purple and rust-gold, and hemmed in by tangled bare branches and thick grey mist. Some sages argue that close proximity to a raw Weave spot made it sentient, and a teacher of mysteries and granter of wild talents. Sought out by disaffected elves and servants of Mystra alike. No more forthcoming to its' origins than the others. Extracts odd and seemingly random bits of knowledge and life-memories or vows of temporary servitude in exchange for its' beneficence.

Freestave (mercenary) wizard. One of the seven apprentices who took their surnames from the ruined-in-spellflame Starnspells mage academy in Elturel. Tall and slender, with dark curly hair and delicate features. Given to thunderous cursing outbursts when angered or flummoxed. Impaled by a piercer in the Undermountain. Her life was saved by clerical weal, but she now sports an ugly, scarred concave depression where her right breast once was. Carries a wand of paralyzation (36c.) and wears the Collar of Jelgath (allows passwall at will).

      said to Master of Hammers Baerth Orralus
      on the consecrating of the Cupped Hands shrine to Ilmater, 1309DR (later preserved in Orralus's collected Memoirs of a Master Craftsman)





I absolutely love these, but most especially the one on the art.
AJA Posted - 18 Feb 2020 : 00:20:57
Roosh Rednose
A jester character in the popular lowcoin play, "All A Night's Work." Has also become Waterdhavian slang for any type of buffoon or merryandrew. The word "roosh" itself was originally Dock Ward slang for nonsense or prattle, bastardized from the Calishite baraush (rumbling waters; nonsense, empty talk).

Rorel Faelthro
Whip-thin, agile. Grey hair, medium-length salt-and-pepper beard. Alert brown eyes. Soft-spoken, charming. Well-versed in the manners of the nobility. A former sellsword turned to one of Waterdeep's better-known dance-masters (teach popular dances of the day, and invent new ones or arrange variants as the need for coin strikes them. Many of them, such as Rorel, began as trainers of sword-play, their superior agility and sense of balance serving them well in both professions). Also uses his contacts in the mercenary world to facilitate armed bouts and "swords against" (man-vs.-monster or man-vs.-animal) shows at the Field of Triumph and other private venues when his coins run low. Bemoans his former career (despite the profit he still indirectly makes from it) and often laments that "if the Field would run The Lay of Loralyre instead of base bloodletting, Waterdeep would be a brighter and better place."

Roritha Starnspells
Freestave (mercenary) wizard. One of the seven apprentices who took their surnames from the ruined-in-spellflame Starnspells mage academy in Elturel. Tall and slender, with dark curly hair and delicate features. Given to thunderous cursing outbursts when angered or flummoxed. Impaled by a piercer in the Undermountain. Her life was saved by clerical weal, but she now sports an ugly, scarred concave depression where her right breast once was. Carries a wand of paralyzation (36c.) and wears the Collar of Jelgath (allows passwall at will).

Rorlassra
Small, sharp eyes, hard, wrinkled face, and thin, sourly down-drawn lips. Coldly ambitious, but not wantonly cruel. From somewhere "east past Impiltur." A wizard of indeterminate manner. Has made her way to Waterdeep in search of The Spell That Lurks ("in brazen highlight and pages furled") – which may or may not be the same as The Lost Spell of Azuthan legend (she certainly thinks so).

Roselendra "Old Rosy" Waywinter
A hin-maid of indeterminate years; weathered and wrinkled, but with bright and steady eyes and gait. Makes her way by means of sling and axe, and fish-net and berry-basket. Comes irregularly to Red Larch to trade furs, and forest-herbs and wild eggs, and to sometimes sign on for local monster-clearing jobs. Loath to travel any further south down the Dessarin Vale though, as she finds nothing of use in the civilization there – well, besides the occasional aniseed cake resting over a glowing hearth. And turnip-dishes of all manner (she absolutely adores turnips; Felstan Spindrivver at the Cliffwatch Inn serves a plate of turnips sliced and roasted with leek and butternut squash and smothered in qum'azho [KOOM-äzo; a rich, buttery Calishite cream sauce] and thick shavings of Elturian grey cheese, and that is the one and only reason she would ever step foot in Waterdeep).

It's certainly possible, though it's not something I have ready at hand.

It would also be continually asterisked with "I'm fairly certain that I made this up, but I may have nicked it from Ed instead, somewhere along the way."

Theslaé's Hunting Sword
A silent, floating, enchanted sword that drifts, point-down, through the darkened streets of Dock Ward, seeking opponents to combat. The enigmatic blade takes its' name from Theslaé Steeleye, a paranoid local swordsmith who uttered a curse on her deathbed that she would return to seek revenge on all her many enemies. Local lore claims this is Theslaé's restless spirit, seeking her promised blood debt. In reality, the blade is possessed by the spirit of a glyptar (a male medusa) which resides within the crystal stone set into the pommel. The Hunting Sword seeks out lone travelers – noble fop, drunken sea reaver and unwary adventurer alike – and accosts them until they fight back. The glyptar cares not whether its' crystal prison is destroyed, and acts fearlessly and recklessly as a result. It is no fool, however, and when mages or groups of men come seeking it, the glyptar uses its' pass through stone ability to hide within the walls of buildings or to sink down into the flagstones underfoot, emerging again once the seekers have passed.

Thizraen "Shamble-Staff" (NG HM Exp12/P4 of Chauntea)
The Sacrosanct Seed of the Goddess. Said to be the offspring of the Harvest Mother herself. His eyes are inhuman, overlarge and solid green in color. Has displayed command of several unusual fertility and healing powers in the past. Creator of the renowed blue rose of Elvaldenh, the only such flower to be bred true outside of the legendary Evermeet of the Elves. A noted collector of rare and unusual plants and flowers, and one of the foremost experts on the identification of and care for such foliage in the North today.




Love both of these. Thizraen might be interesting as well if he's cross pollinated with several women, and maybe he's got his own fledgling group of young Chaunteans in training who are half-brothers and sisters.

On the hunting sword, it might be interesting if the sword is also intelligent and with a purpose and the ability to speak. Maybe it has some abilities that it can bestow to protect itself. Maybe the sword wants to seek out those who break promises or welch on debts or somesuch. Thus it might like the glyptar enabling it to accomplish its goals and may help it pick targets.
