Rise of the Runelords
owner of Fatman's Feedbag
Most believe this tavern is owned and operated by an enormous man named Gressel Tenniwar (CN male human rogue 2/expert 1), but in fact the owner is a lanky thug named Jubrayl Vhiski (NE male human rogue 7), one of the Feedbag’s regulars. Jubrayl is also the leader of the local gang of Sczarni, an extended network of Varisian thieves, highwaymen, con artists, graverobbers, smugglers, and murderers. Nearly two dozen of the Varisians in Sandpoint are members of the Sczarni, all cruel and self-serving men and women who take care to maintain respectable jobs as laborers, fishermen, and hunters, but who draw their true income taking part in various illegal Sczarni scams and stunts. Sheriff Hemlock suspects that Jubrayl is the local leader, and would like nothing more than to bring him in, but the Sczarni are experts at walking the line between legalities and taking the blame for their direct superiors. So while Sheriff Hemlock’s sent many of Jubrayl’s boys to jail over the last several years, he’s never come close to the ringleader himself, much to Jubrayl’s continued amusement.
