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.

So many ways to make fun of this that it's not even funny.

There it would make much sense, yes.

Ilighryn Delzagus (NE HM Aris4/W6)
A wealthy Tethyrian merchant (last titled member of the Barony of the Redlands; now an importer of resin and pitch from the Moonshaes and various forest camps ringing the High Forest) and socialite of quiet, cold (some would say malevolent) demeanor. Ilighryn dabbled with the Cult of Ao before they finally faded away in the late 1360's, and it scratched his itch for intrigue and behind-the-scenes manipulating enough that he has since founded and led not only the high-coin and mercantile Taol Club (who meet in the upper-level chambers of The Heap of Pearls, a Castle Ward festhall he owns), but also The Cult of She Who Names Herself Night and Oftener Sorrow, a low-level cell of Shar-worshippers.

Iljack Thaumhand (LN HM T/spellthief)
Black Jack. The "Master of Intrigues" (spymaster) for House Moonstar. A lifetime of attempted poisonings, ingested antidotes and applied venomquench spells have left him with an immunity to almost all known poisons, but also constant heartburn, stomache ache and loose bowels.

Iljant Maermith
An associate of the vigilante Red Sashes. A dark-haired, dark-eyed man of middle years, Iljant is a modestly successful merchant and maker of iron-banded casks and barrels, the kind used by the fishing fleets to pack salted fish and whale oils in for shipping inland. The barrels also make excellent hiding places for individuals and items the Sashes want transported out of the city, or to a Net Street warehouse co-owned by Iljant, for safe storage. For his part Iljant is a simple man, with simple motives.; like most of Waterdeep's merchant citizenry he cares most for money, not ideology or any particular agenda. Still, he likes the fact that the Sashes work for "the good of the citizens, not the nobles," and he also enjoys imagining the intrigues and schemes that surround the people or objects hidden in his barrels.

Ilkaphra Ilzimmer
A noble of House Ilzimmer (eldest daughter, favored of Lord Boroldan). Ilkphara has been missing for some months on an expedition to the Starlight-Haunted Hill (Where the Stars are the Cold White Bones of the Gods), one of the Lost Peaks in the High Forest. Divinations reveal she is not dead, but not much more. Lord Boroldan has begun sending hired swords to search for her.

Illasrae Eirontalar (N HF Aris2)
A young noble of House Eirontalar. Tall, fair-haired, quiet. Owns a magical pendant that can call forth around her vibrant motes of faerie shaped as tiny hummingbirds. The pendant is linked to a larger obelisk in the gardens of the Eirontalar villa with similar properites. Known as The Bejeweled Garden, it was created as a gift from the hierophant Eftoon The Fierce, in recognition of Eirontalar efforts in sustaining the early holy grove that would become known as The Shrines of Nature.

AJA Posted - 08 Sep 2019 : 00:45:36


Suldown Street Society
A private upper-room club located on Suldown Street, North Ward. Members refer to themselves as "The Boars" (thus leading to local wags' snipes such as "The Bores," and "The Snores of Suldown Street"), and fancy themselves among the movers and shakers of the city. In reality, they spend most of their time lounging around drinking and smoking, swearing fearful oaths, and intiating intricate plots that go nowhere. Members include the lordling Olhin Duthttever, the mage Ormithar, the merchants Lhabbert and Alabardos and Ammeran, the Master of the Society.

Alabardos (LN HM Exp)
An elderly, wrinkled merchant who trades southern crystal and glass for northern furs and leather goods. His dark, weather-beaten skin is set off by silver hair and moustache and light, almost colorless eyes. He is accompanied at all times by two tall, slim, wand-wielding lasses commonly thought to be bodyguards or concubines. They are in fact his daughters, Estlonna and Alaea. A member of the Suldown Street Society.

Ammeran (CN HM)
A fat, dark-eyed man with an excellent memory for names and faces and a fancy for southern wines and young girls. Ammeran is the local Speaker (contact) for the Neverwinter-based Eightstar Trading Coster and chairman of the Suldown Street Society.

Olhin "The Black Baron" Duthttever
An outspoken member of the Suldown Street Society. Olhin liked to fancy himself as a man of many secrets and powerful connections, and thought himself far more clever than he really was. He actually was a titled lordling, having won the rights to a backwater cabbage-and-rutabegas village (Low Ashanar) and some lands southeast of Westbridge (a rough triangle from Enderk's Pond on the trail west from the Stone Bridge to the fortified farm of Elfposting, to the local landmark known as Upright Hill) off of a down-on-his-luck nobleman, in a high-stakes game of chance. Found dead in Buckle Alley, south of the Tower of the Watchful Order, the cause of death apparently being quite a lengthy fall.

Ormithar "Mage of Many Rings" (LN HM Abj9)
A small, wiry man with salt-and-pepper hair and a short-cropped beard. Ormithar resides on Shield Street, where he can be hired to tutor minor magelings. Will not teach spells of a powerful or destructive nature, nor will he reveal any of the many magical items he is rumored to possess. A member of the Suldown Street Society.

I also love the concept behind the bone rings of Tyr's champions, specifically the part in which they may be used to send a version of the original person to aid the wearer. I may steal this concept for use with the witches of Rashemen and telthors of heroes, as I think that very much would fit their culture. It could also fit with them as a means to summon base animal telthors as well (or a bone piece of jewelry that summons a skeletal mount). Finally, it might be interesting if hags might not make something like this of their fellow hags who have fallen. For this concept, it might be interesting to make a new kind of hag kind of like a "spectral mage" concept, but a new specific kind of hag that's EITHER an undead spirit OR bone creation.
AJA Posted - 03 Sep 2019 : 01:20:22
All excellent suggestions. Shadow Head could be the base for The Nine Mouths of Halaster (posted 11/10/18, reposted here for reference):

The Nine Mouths of Halaster
The Mouths, named after the mad mage Halaster (The Lord of Twists and Turns, The Eater of Echoes [That Fade Down The Halls], He Who Eagerly Awaits), appear at random intervals, and consist of a ring of nine levitating human mouths framed by moustache and beard. They appear insubstantial, though they have been known to solidify on occasion, to bite or to snatch up a weapon being wielded against them. The Mouths most often do nothing more than make an insane cackling sound, although upon occasion they speak with passerby, imparting cryptic bits of information or the answers to unasked questions. Far more sinister, the Mouths sometimes emit harmful spells (chain lightning and the tentacles from an Evard's black tentacles spell seem to be favorites), or even act to teleport an unlucky soul straight to somewhere in the depths of the Undermountain.


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


Dobyn Farrbuckle (LN DM War2/Exp4)
A native of Sundabar. Dobyn is active in the weapons and arms trade, swapping fine dwarven armscraft for textiles, woodwork, and other materials in short supply in the frozen northern city. He also functions as a mercenary outfitter, gathering hireswords for his home during times of heavy orc activity.

The Dolorous Swans of Orophir
Undead swanmays, corrupted by the creeping influence and malign effluence out of Hellgate Keep. It is said that anyone who hears their bleak lament is struck with crippling ennui and overwhelming desire to drown themselves in the fetid waters of their home, the stinking, oily lake formerly known to the elves as Orophir, "The Lake of Long Sunsets." These twisted creatures then feed upon those bloated bodies and line their nests with the resultant bones. Most believe that this is how the mighty Uthgardt barbarian Janthorn Trollslayer met his end. There is a nearby covey of hags that parlays with them, and from them gains the occasional prized specimen to add as one of their shambling servants.

Dornal Rorelgaunt
The Knight of Wasp Island, a now-vanished holding in the middle of the Delimbyr near Secomber. Champion of Tyr. Fell in battle against the orcs of the Black Horde. His remains were used in the crafting of one of Tyr's Lawful Rings (relics of the church of Tyr. Each ring is carved from the breastbone of a fallen champion of the god of Justice. Individual rings are known by the name of their donor, e.g., Khelimbyr's Lawful Ring, which was fashioned from the corpse of the paladin Khelimbyr of Elturel. Powers include protection from evil, 20'r; detect lie; resist heat/cold; and the ability to summon a spectral hammer, 1x/day. There are rumors that in times of need the most valiant of Tyr's champions can manifest close by the ring as a swordwraith or spectral guardian). Rorelgaunt's Ring now sits on a finger of Harkas Kormallis, the current Knight-Champion of Tyr.

Dorrum
An old dwarf, lame, nearly bent in two. Piercing amber eyes under wild blue-black brows. Customarily wrapped up in an old great-coat, green, stained and patched, and a shapeless, broad-brimmed hat over his eyes. Provides divinations and personal fortunes using cast bones, personal effects and various burnt offerings. Claims to be able to contact "the good spirits" which help to find out the right numbers for the smallcoin (numbers) gambling lotteries (his main source of income).

Drallto
A playwright and author of numerous chapbooks detailing the lives and deeds of legendary Waterdhavians such as Nimoar, Halaster and Athar the Shining Knight. His florid and fanciful writings are poorly researched and bear little in the way of truth, but are immensely popular among the common folk of the city.

Stealweb (Seven Sisters) is close. Shadow Head and Shadowsteal are also interesitng.

Filverel's doorward (Secrets of the Magister) also has some potential. Irithra's spelltouch would work. Spell Trigger or Greater Spell Trigger would definitely work.

from the wizard's spell compendium, this is the only thing that kind of sounds like such a variation. That being said, its bugging me, because I seem to recall the same thing. There was a Halruaan spell that I think could active magic items. The actual effect above would be achievable though by simply having a magic mouth activated whenever a spell like a glyph of warding goes off, etc...

Sacremon's Acid Wit
(Alteration)
Level : 5
Range : 30 yds .
Components: V, S
Casting Time : 5
Duration : 3 rds ./level
Area of Effect : 1 creature
Saving Throw : None
When this spell is cast, a large floating
mouth, similar to a magic mouth appears and
follows the victim . The mouth criticizes, harangues,
insults, and berates the victim in the
victim's native tongue . If the victim is fighting,
he suffers a -2 penalty to all initiative and
combat rolls, as he is distracted by the constant
barrage of verbiage from the mouth . The mouth
is immune to physical attacks, although a dispel
magic spell will destroy it .
Notes : Very rare spell . (Updated from
POLYHEDRON Newszlne .)

Mad Felnagus
The name given to the malevolent madman responsible for a rash of unsolved magical attacks that plagued Waterdeep a century ago. This unknown assailant set himself to casting a modified magic mouth dweomer on the doors of various taverns, private abodes and festhalls (even at least one of the jakes of the Blushing Mermaid festhall). When activated, a bewhiskered human mouth would appear upon the ensorcelled portal, utter the words "Well met, Felnagus," and then spit forth a gout of flame or acid upon the unfortunate who triggered it. The caster was never found, and eventually came to be known as "Mad Felnagus," a source of considerable urban lore, especially in Trades Ward, where many of the attacks occurred.

Maethlarra Methilstars
Holds the office of Bright Horn (speaker) of the House of Heroes. Makes a point of knowing the names, deeds, and personal badges of the great heroes and adventuring companies of the North and the Western Heartlands. When such personages find themselves in the city, often the first local they encounter is a runner bearing an invitation personally addressed from the Office of the Bright Horn.

Maftan of Waterdeep
An incredibly wealthy merchant. One of the four surviving founders of the Six Coffers Market Priakos. Recently sponsored an expedition to the Far Lands of Anchoromé and the founding of the settlement of Far Anchor. [ Source: FR0 Forgotten Realms Campaign Set – Cyclopedia of the Realms, p.62. Name/Occupation given. Additional detail by me. ]

Maftoon the Minor (N HM Adp5 of Beshaba)
A member of the Apothecaries and Physicians Guild, and "small-spells" hedge mage. Specializes in the so-called "vengeful vexes," those minor curses that cause incessant sneezing, itching, stuttering and such.

The Mage of Stars
A reclusive mage often rumored to be an incantatar (the rare male version of the incantatrix). Often accompanied by the Ishaari warrior Hulvhyr "Horse-Haired" (CG HM Ra). Last seen in the city searching for a female with "eyes of the truest green," for some unknown purpose. [ Source: "The Enchanting Incantatrix," Ed Greenwood, Dragon Magazine #90, p.8. Name/Occupation given. Additional details by me. ]

The Five Books Big on Random Names and Random References and Short on Everything Else
"You may wonder at my slowness in recognizing the name. But you know that my memory is merely a mausoleum of proper names. There they lie inanimate, awaiting the magic touch – and not very prompt in arising when called, either."
      Chance, Joseph Conrad

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

The Flames That Lit the Frozen North (1358DR, Ammathair Hawkfeather)
Contains the epic deeds and stories of the heroes who built and fared forth from Nimoar's Hold, lying largely forgotten under wintry cairns today; the great warriors and sea reavers of the Hold with names such as Sungulf and Haurjan Many-Sails; Aleric Far-Faring and Gharl the Grim and Jodraegla the Winter-Haired Witch.

The Utha Sonnusk (Sagas of the Sword-Shes of the Uthgardt) (various, unknown; collected 1354DR by Mintipur Moonsilver)
Collected tales of the "Daughters of Uth," those rare but notable women who did such deeds that even the most stubborn and prideful Uthgardt warriors sing of them; the shaman's daughter Thurbja, who killed the grandfather rothé that was favored of the totem god Black Lion, and skinned it and wore its' heavy coat as her own; Cindra the Fleet, who laughed as she danced through the daggered lightnings of Talos until her hair and her eyes both flashed silver; Telka the Hunter who moved through the long grasses as a ghost, and never came across a beast or man she could not hunt with her bow and spear; Old Wraulda, the midwife, who birthed into the world the storm god Talos, son of The Thunder That Shook the Heavens, the great Thunderbeast totem god; and the great loregiver Bruundra, wife of Uthgar, Maker of Flame and Ceremony, she who hewed down The Oak Tree of Old and read the secrets of the Gods, those stores of knowledge and wondrous tales untold, imprinted there upon its ringed innards.

Sitting At a Humble Hearth (various, unknown; collected 1329DR by Dunnath of Mournkeep)
A collection of Moonshar legends and folk-songs that tell of heroes such as Uluuan the Never-Drowned and Findrial Long-Forgotten, and the wood-woman Oghura, who travelled by means of two great swans girdled and haltered by gold chain; of the horrors of That Which Hangs Between Night and Day and Rorlemdra, the Pale Huntress, who turned her seven sons into seven white-toothed hounds, and Yellow the Willow and The Thistle King; and of the Hairy Howlaas and the Haggart-Haunts (alas and alack-a-day!), the Baroo (who go like fire), the Maugh (black and charred) and the Snae-snee (that screech and turn the milk sour).

Peeping About In Darkish Places (1300DR, Tember the Travelled, Sage of Cavern and Cyst)
A conversational travelogue and guide to the shallower regions of the Western Heartlands Underdark.
"One then comes into the crossing of The Stone Willows, so-named for the graceful, drooping appearance of the stone here, formed by millennia of slow water drippings, looking nothing more in form than the willow trees of the Lands Above, and the bridge over the Weeping Cleft, the deep chasm where the aforementioned seepage disappears down into. Steep steps carved to the side of the greatest of the formations here (called Old Man Willow, of course) lead up to the Derro Walk, a straight, slightly downward-sloping tunnel which, like so many other underland-marks here bear the name of their original excavators and occupiers. This then after a distance of some fair march opens up into the great stalagtite-and-stalagmite-segmented cavern of Undernettle. It was here in Undernettle that the dwarf warrior Hwurdoun made his doomed stand against hunting troglodytes and here where his surviving kin inscribed his epitaph, high on the west-ward wall, in plain and quite un-Dwarven fashion;
'Here did Hwurdoun Stand
His Tasks Undone
Here did He Fall
Drear and Barren
Here He Lies'

Why the Derro let this Dwarf-script stand unmolested is something of a mystery."

Of Giants Old and Woods Primeval (855DR, Osuldenra the Old, Wildermother of Silvanus)
A compendium of things of an older age, with entries such as The Tears That Ebbed to Earth
("There is an ancient legend, possibly elvish, which says that the goddess Umberlee once swelled her pelagial belly out so far that it swallowed even the mightiest plateaus and peaks of Faerûn, and that her abyssal depths rose until they even caressed the luminescent flanks of orbéd Selûne herself. It was in this time that many of the civilized races were swept away and drowned, and many of the aequoreal horrors that plague sea-faring folk to this day were birthed. And Selûne, in her kindness and her love for the races of Men and Demi-Kin that wallked under her Ethereal Light, shed tears for these dooms. And her tears flowed down into the surging waters and froze there in the frigid depths. And when finally Umberlee's satiated waters receeded, there was left behind seven shimmering peaks, formed of the sorrows of a goddess, that collection of impressive heights which men now know as the Star Mounts.")
and The Garden of Flowers and Old Witchcraft
("Past the tumbled walls where pines grow thick and stand sentry
in which there is always sunshine and lovely flowers the whole year round
where ferocious bearbind and hungry bindweed do battle with shining crowfoot and valiant kingcup
there in the midst of that stands
the crooked woman leaning on a crooked stick
whose roots go down deep into the earth
where the dead are and where they whisper their secrets")

Battle of the Bloody Dawn... sounds vampiric... Amn… wonder if Shyressa of the twisted rune were involved.

Marasiah Ulbrinter

Was last seen in Amn, at the aftermath of the Battle of the Bloody Dawn, collecting the viscera and the coagulated lifes-blood runoff of the participants, both human and monstrous, for unknown purpose.

Marauth "Manyjools" (NE HM)
Humorous, good company (especially to those paying his tavern tab). Also thoroughly amoral, and exceedingly vicious when angered. Stocky, dark, grizzled. Light on his feet. Good at dancing, bad at swordplay (prefers knife or cudgel). Has a fancy for pale and freckled women. An enforcer for the Xanathar.

Markos Zellizands (N HM Aris3/P7 of Tymora)
Prior of the Inner Temple of the House of Luck. A native of Chondath. Markos is an athletic man of medium height and build. He has rich brown eyes, a mop of curly black hair, and sports a well-groomed moustache and beard. Bears a thumbnail-sized heart-shaped birthmark on his left temple. Adventurous, curious, and quick to strike up conversations with people. He fancies himself as a poet and writer, and has penned a number of syrupy collections of love poems and a handful of passable "sword-and-cloak" romances (with a thinly-disguised version of himself as the male lead, of course). He also frequently contributes temple gossip to several broadsheets under the pen-name of "Zamerghos the Cloaked-Quill."
        Markos is absolutely smitten with the courtesan Shyrrhr. He has publicly proclaimed that, aside from his goddess, he will have no other woman, and his efforts to gain her favor are the stuff of legend (the entire field of rare Lapaliiyan honeygold orchids he had delivered to the way outside her domicile and the twenty pirouetting-and-pinwheeling crystal drakes that accompanied them are still talked of in the Court). [ Source: City of Splendors - Who's Who In Waterdeep, p.62. Name/Stats (as N HM P7) given. Additional detail by me. ]

Marlesk
Proprietor of Dweomers Divers and Cerule, a cramped ground-floor "smallwand" (cantrips, minor vastations and vermin vexes) shop on the Street of Bells, Castle Ward. Also deals in alchemical substances (essences of this and that, scales and scraps of hide and flesh, powdered metals, et cetera) from afar. Tall and bony, has a voice reduced to a harsh rasp, the result of a persistent coughing sickness in his youth.

Marloon Stavenstaff
Famed author of In The Company of Mages and The Unpublished Weal of Sattarm Sevenslakes. Spent some twelve winters feebleminded by a jealous rival before dying of a wasting disease in the back alleys of Dock Ward.

Nesrûme
A senior member of the Watchful Order (holds a secondary office under the Accomplished Master of Divinations). A diminutive and energetic woman bent on organizing everything around her.

Nesrumé and Jalayn
Brother and sister acolytes at the Shrines of Nature. Tasked with gathering (carefully, with an eye to sustainable harvesting) herbs, roots, berries, leaves and bark from the lands surrounding the city for use in the Shrines and for offer or for sale to visiting rangers and local herbalists. "Nesré" is plain, short and shy, and is fascinated by hawks and hunting falcons (and well known to the nobility who hunt their birds in the Meadows as a result). "Merry Jal" is short as well, slender and has a low, musical voice and a fondness for pranks and jokes. Both are apprenticed to the Forestarm, Flamerond "Greenbriar" Hornfallow.

Proprietor of Nyphold's Den of Astral Delights (Keltarn Street, Castle Ward), a heavily-curtained and -carpeted parlor where customers recline on pillow and divan and inhale deeply of scented, numbing vapors, similar to the languor-dens of the Thayans or the smokegilds of the Calishites. "Etherial pleasures, fashioned from hush and dew and star."

Nyrjalla
The Red Beauty. Valquess (queen) of the barbarian tribes of the western Shaar. Named for the fiery sheen of her hair. Also known as Nyrjalla the Bloody, for her merciless treatment of captured outlanders (stories propagated by Calishite factors).

(as an aside, anyone know how to link directly to a post here, instead of to a page?)

As I'm sure you've figured out by now, I like descriptions much more than mechanics. For the Winding Warhorn I thought maybe calling a/multiple storm of vengeance (black storm clouds! thunder! lightnings!) and left it at that. But mephits (lightning?) or weather control abilities would suit just as well.

It was on one of those raids that he met (and was bested by) his future wife, the Storm Sorceress Elendvalûe, and also where he gained the Winding Warhorn of Kozah, the enchanted weapon that formed the backbone of Waterdeep's armies for a number of years. He and his ship, the Deepwater Sword, were last sighted south of Toaridge-at-the-Sun's-Setting, heading towards Corwell Town.

Aleric Hawkwinter (CN HM Aris/F)
A noble of House Hawkwinter. Married to Narae (N HF) and father of a son, Anthonin, and two daughters, Murleene and Theera. An active recruiter of mercenaries and an avid horseman. Aleric is rarely to be found in the city, as he spends most of his time scouring the cities of the Western Heartlands for able-bodied hireswords. Wields The Jundsblade, an enchanted everbright broadsword and a Hawkwinter family heirloom.

Aleric Longsword (N HM Exp/T)
Red-gold hair, fair complexion. Tall and graceful, moves with assurance and confidance. A native of Hendelhearth in Ruathym. Captain of the Sail of Seas, a caravel of the Dezlentyr merchant fleet.

Aleric "Red-Leathers"
A woodsman and ranger who roamed the Dessarin a century ago. Famed for the distinctive ruddy hue of his leggings, said to be from the spilled blood of countless orcs and other goblinkin. Often accompanied in his travels by the beastmaster Iravensblood, and the brown bear called Stronglas.

Aleuadae (N ½EF Aris3/P4 of Lliira)
(ah-LOO-ah-day) The Laughing Lady. Short and slender, with long, shimmering platinum hair and sparkling emerald eyes (it is often whispered that her striking features have been enhanced with the aid of certain cosmetic enchantments, of the kind popular in Calimshan and the Tashalar). The "Elf-Queen of Castle Ward," as she is called in the broadsheets, is one of the more well-known of the city's socialites and "revel-matrons." She is the speaker (contact) for the Light Laughter, a well-regarded traveling troupe of Evereskan dancers and musicians. She also owns the largest chap-book collection of steamy romances, bodice-rippers, passion-plays, torrid love triangles (and quadrangles, &etc.), and illicit inter-species debaucheries in all Waterdeep (and quite possibly all of the North), a collection she began some thirty years ago. She has had these volumes collected and re-bound as proper books, and has filled the shelves of her "Room of Merry Revels," an entire suite of three chambers of her Castle Ward abode in which she spends her days, lounging in a variety of comfortably-cushioned chairs and reading and re-reading the various unfolding lurid exploits and lusty doings contained within.
        In addition to perusing her collection, Aleuadae now spends her idle time and idle wealth paying local painters to depict scenes from the books in the most vivid manner possible. Most of these are of handswidth-size, which she then arranges to have re-bound into the collections they were inspired by. Others, her favorite scenarios, are commissioned full-length and framed, and increasingly occupy the chamber adjacent. She is toying with the idea of submitting these pieces for the "soft enchantments" of Baerimel Thaelwood, or Jaseldra "The Eyes of Bliss," or perhaps Maeluuth "The Soft Master" of Yhaunn, master-enchanters all of arcanagraphs (paintings that have minor illusions cast on them suggesting motion – hair of person stirring occasionally in unseen winds, a smile that comes and goes, the gaze of the depicted person moving about, small gestures, etc.), a hugely expensive process which may finally bring an end to her fortune. Whenever that happens, or upon her demise, the House of Beauty has a standing (and steadily increasing) offer to purchase the bulk of her obsession.





Love the term arcanagraphs and would like to hear your ideas for Winding Warhorn of Kozah, the enchanted weapon that formed the backbone of Waterdeep's armies for a number of years. Like what do you think the warhorn might do? My first thoughts were like a ring of the ram for blasting things.... as that would fit with Kozah's destructive nature. However, I'm also picturing something like an elemental version of a Horn of Valhalla, one that can maybe summon a small army of mephitis, a platoon of elemental myrmidons, or a pair of something more powerful. Then again, it might control the weather to control the battlefield. What's some other options you might envision?

(COO-Thel Hay-VAR-Kose) The owner and proprietor of Kuthil's Magemasks, a Sea Ward shop that specializes in enchanted full-face masks of the kind worn at noble parties. Imported from far Calimshan and Halruaa these masks will, when worn for a time (4-8 hours, the length of a typical ball or fête), mold to the wearers face and magically laugh, frown, and contort as if they were real flesh and blood. Further, those of a beastial appearance allow their wearer to snarl, roar, trill, hiss or blow plumes of colored smoke, as would the actual beast the mask represents. Kuthil also sells exotic scents and glim-enchantments, as well as minor body illusions and alterations (changes in hair, skin, or eye color and temporary scarring or body-tattoos are always popular).




It seems that a hagspawn barbarian youth on dajemma from Rashemen has become convinced that this shop has "stolen Rashemi secrets from the witches", and in a loyalist fashion he seeks to find adventurers to put this shop owner out of business. Where he's getting the money from is little known, for he left Rashemen with nothing on his back but his weapons and armor and a small bit of gold. However, it appears he has been successful in his dajemma, for he obviously has upgraded equipment and money to spare. There are those who whisper that he is in contact with a group of durthans active in the area which may include a hag who is his own mother. Others whisper that these "durthans" are actually masked Leiran priests playing on the young barbarian's naivety.

Klaskur Blackgulph
Proprietor of Klaskur's Reliable Caroches and Carry-Wagons (Caravan Street south of Tulmaster's, South Ward. "Carriages for Hire. Cogs and Caravans met. Appointments and High-Gown Parties promptly attended to and executed with reliability"). His coaches are dark green in color, with bright red shafts and wheels. Requests for specific colorations of horses, additional cushionings or accompanying exit fanfare are met willingly but cost extra.

Kleskul "Wormwood"
Knobby, dark and well-pocked, like a length of wood given over to boring worms. Small, dark eyes hidden under bushy black eyebrows. Has a keen eye for gems, both appraising, re-cutting, and fencing. Can be contacted at the Thirsty Throat tavern.

Korla "Mother Quaff"
Thick-set. Broad face, bushy brown eyebrows and wild shock of hair under colorful scarf. Fell out of a tree climbing for summerhawk chicks as a youth, rendering her right leg lame thereafter. Sells small-beer and "summer-quench" (water scented variously with cucumber or mint) in the warmer months, and a variety of broths (vegetable or animal) and swill-rum when the weather turns frigid. Traverses the Market and the length of the city's main roads in her daily rounds, equipped with her cart and her coin-cry; "Nib-tipples, copper-draughts! Clear and quaffable! Potations as you go!"

Korlyn Haelstarn Amcathra (CG HM Aris4/F4)
A young noble of House Amcathra (son of Vehn Haelstarn and Shershael Amcathra). Once content with a life of wining and wenching, he swiftly found purpose and success in the Guard after the events of Halaster's Harvestide. Recently promoted to a civilar (captain) of the Griffon Guard (Gold Wing). Rides the griffon named Black Boon.

Baerimn "Mage of Many Staves" (LN HM W)
A stout, grizzled old mage, one of the city's judicial "black-robes" (magisters). With his salt-and-pepper stubble, icy blue eyes, and broad shoulders, Baerimn looks more warrior than wizard. He speaks in a hoarse voice (the result of an old spellduel), and is very blunt and forthright, wasting no extra effort on flowery speech or riddles. As his nickname notes, he has a passion for staves and walking sticks of all sorts. His favorite (and most often carried) is Aerimnae, a masterful length of ashwood whose tip is carved into the upper body of a mirthful elven lass, framed by long twirling hair and tiny motes of faerie fire.

Baerklar "The Black Stag"
Neveren warrior and commander of men. During the Black Horde seige of Waterdeep he led several successful sorties against the orc masses but was at last captured by them and put to death by impalement. The Poison-Drinker tribe used his body as a battle standard until they were routed by a force of Waterdhavians under the command of Laraekh Var. Cremated and his ashes mixed into the mortar used for the rebuilding of the North Wall, as was the custom with many fallen heroes of the war.

Baeruld & Finefettle
Hire-chefs. Often used to service the mage-revels and Revels Arcane at the Tower of the Order. ("Able Dressers of Flesh and Fish & All Manner of Fantastic Beast. Hearthmasters in service to the Watchful Order since 1362DR")

Bakkan and Glerd
"Soot" and "Sot." Local Dock Ward cutpurses, often work in tandem. Named for their swarthy, disheveled condition and their general inebriation (respectively). Bakkan enjoys finding "jools" and cutting off the ringed fingers of rich prey, while Glerd simply seeks a coinpurse heavy enough to pay for another night at the bottom of a tankard. Members of the Headsmen street gang.

Ballandan Bambrusk
The youngest (and most favored) son of Abardan Bambrusk. A shiftless adventurer (as "Ballandan the Brave," a member of the Lady's Fortunate Fellows), and former acolyte at the Tower of Luck (as "Bally-Hey, Lord of the Endless Tankards," still a coin-loose favorite of many fellow acolytes and underpriests). Attended by his manservant/herald/chronicler, the gnome Bartlegus (N GM Exp1/Illu2).
