NPCs of Aspara

The People in our Neighborhood


**SPOILERS**

*WARNING: This will be updated after the relevant episode releases. So if you aren’t up-to-date you may find out some upsetting information.

We have met and will meet many significant characters during our journeys.
This is a brief description for them and their current status in the World of Aspara.

The Arcanist – Do-gooder in Zexah that caught the attention of people in power. The Arcanist was the reason Shaft was sent to Zexah. Shaft employed Gozer as his muscle to help bring in the Arcanist. Bryn and Falzaren happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and got roped into helping Shaft get his bounty.
*Deceased

Chucky – Hunch-backed bar boy at the Good Riddance Inn in Zexah. Oh yeah, also the Arcanist. Chucky was delivered to Detmer. RIP, we assume.
*Deceased? Oh. Oh no.

Isabella Goode – The Doctor of Zexah and owner of a massive bar tab. Learn from Isabella and never buy drinks for Shaft. MAAAaaaaaybe the mastermind behind the goings-on of the cave?
Newly annointed Elder of Heracleon. Patron To Falzaren.

Jolalah – Barkeep – The Good Riddance Inn in Zexah – Probably wondering what happened to his barboy Chucky

Sardos the Magician – “Magical” crap peddler in Zexah. Well, he was anyway. He was also Bryn’s first major assignment. RIP SardoS
*Deceased – Dammit Leland!

Detmer – Dwarf Criminal mastermind in Drukhall that gives jobs to Shaft and Bryn. Shaft is his favorite (according to Shaft). Go to the Tickly Servant Inn and tell the dragonborn Frank “Kumquat”.

Jel – Barkeep – The Tickly Servant Inn – She has had dealings with Shaft and knows better than to believe anything he says. Shaft believes she likes him.

Hannah – Criminal Mastermind in Drukhall that employs the Darklings to do shady things for her. Peer of Detmer.

Hank Applebees – Enemy of Bryn. Killer of Bryn’s friend. Killer of Krug of Krag. Paladin of Kolstice searching for his amulet that went missing after Bryn and company made a visit to his tower. Surprisingly killed by Falzaran, but not until after Gozer beat him down. The man could really take a punch.
*Deceased

Joolvee – A famous Darkling Bard musician, Joolvee has many albums that are very popular in Aspara. He took on more than he could handle when he decided it would be a good idea to try to sell the IP to some orcs. RIP Joolvee, your musical genius will be missed.
*Deceased

Prince Charmington III – Backstabbing, no good, dead beat tabaxi that is no friend of Bryn’s! So she stabbed him. With no warning to Shaft. There seems to be a trend starting.
*Deceased

Blugk Blugk of the Ookshad Tribe – Backstabbing, no good, second-to-Klash orc. And no friend of Gozer. She axed him so no one would know her whereabouts.
*Deceased

Wolfgang – Now knows better than to go panning for gold in the mountains north of Viksher where he and his friend Vixner were chasing dreams and gold rumors when they were captured by a tribe of goblins. Both were able to walk away from the interaction. (Played by Patrick Hillier)

Thuft – beloved Goblin companion that originally was sent with a raiding party from the Mountain to capture the Party to bring back to the Mountain. After seeing Gozer kill the ogre he was with, and many of his other companions, he decided Gozer would now be his king and started following her.
*Deceased 🙁

Komigs the Furious – Current King of the Mountain. Thuft wants Gozer to defeat him and take over being the king. It’s good to be the king.

Roland Rite – A city guard of Viksher. He isn’t above exchanging a friendly backscratch, if you know what I mean. (Played by Pep MacDonald)

Nina Dari– Former love interest of Shaft.
*Status unknown

Gold Grung – Leader of the frogman tribe that offered aid to our weary adventurers. They are keeping paladin armor and accessories in case the party ever decides to go back tot he Twoer Job.

Blake Lakely – Mayor of Goldum. He is a very important man, according to him. He has hired the Party, through his contact Detmer the Dwarf, to shut down the blue towers.

Mother Celeste – Cleric of Goldum who heals Gozer and Thuft, reluctantly.

Magic! Magic! Magic! owner – No one knows his name. Names have power, and so does he. His voice reminds me of someone though…

Percy the Previous Paladin who Protects against the Pestilence of Pride without Prejudice –Perhaps, with some Persistence, one can be Persuaded with Prosperity––enough said, I think––(played by JT) and his travel companion Agnus Felter (played by Kristi Weyland) met the party in Port Randis and narrowly dodged becoming more involved with them.

Orlaine – A former Paladin of Koltice. She helps the party out of a jam, and keeps them from killing a potential future ally. (Played by Adelaide Gardner)

Klash, Bone Collector – The ferocious leader of the Ookshad tribe of orcs in the Vorgarag Mountains. Gozer had tried to challenge him to be the chief, but it didn’t end well for her.

Captain Grimby Chum – Captain of The Rising Starfish. Also captain of the Rising 2. Also the Rising 3. He has employed members of the party and received aid from them as well. Dare we say he is a friend? Shikara quite fancies him.

Brendal – Falzaren’s oldest and dearest friend. … Falzy sure knows how to pick ’em.
*Deceased (at least he has so far had the decency to stay dead)

Ruegar Alebender – An member of the Alebender family, out of Drukall. He has a marvelous transforming beer wagon and is searching for his father, who had been searching for the Snow Bloom. A mythical flower that only grows on Mt. Necropolis in the Vorgorag Mountains. (Played by Stephen Buonocore)

Jessica – Mysterious third sister of Isabella and Erica. Hangs out in Viksher?

Horic – Tobias’ Half-orc friend
*missing

Killian Van Korian – Friend and mentor to Tobias. Sounds suspiciously like John Wayne.

Alstoff Tinnerman – Gnome Tinkerer who is known throughout Aspara for his unmatched workmanship. Designed and built Ruegar’s beer wagon. He is also the creator of the things used by Samuel Koltice at the Towers, and the spinny discs that create the city’s shield.

Cambel – Human Alchemist. Owner of The Golden Ichor in Piscis and friend to Shikara.

Erica – Sea hag, sister to Isabella, nemesis of Falzaren. (Falzaren was tasked by Isabella to “remove” Erica so he could take her place in the coven.) The people of Piscis don’t care for her much.
*Deceased? Yeah, we know. We know.

Tolstoff – The Infinite Hero! He “defeated” the sea hag Erica, and “destroyed” the Infinite Storm! They are still singing his praises in Piscis.
*Deceased

Tenchi – Merchant for illegal magical goods in Heracheon. He can be found in the Creepy Aura near the Port Heracleon docks. His true love is tattooing.

Allamar Zelwik – Elven Elder of Heracleon. No friend to Falzaren. As if the Party didn’t have enough to worry about, they found out he is trying to become a lich.

Geneva Vansk – Elven Elder of Heracleon. Also a friend of Falzy. Poor guy. Geneva is a no good, dirty, backstabbing piece of crap.
