Rise of the Runelords
owner of The Curious Goblin
Chask Haladan (CG male human bard 3/expert 3) has maintained his love affair with 4 books for nearly 70 years and shows no sign of giving it up any time soon. His store is surprisingly complete, and while almost all of his wares are far too pricy for any of the locals to shop here with any frequency, a nest egg gathered in his adventurous youth combined with a frugal lifestyle makes the success of his business secondary to his own satisfaction. Several locals, including Brodert Quink (area 8), Sabyl (area 19), and Ilsorai Gandethus (area 27) can often be found here, either chatting with Chask or sitting in one of several large chairs, reading.
