The Chalice of Blood
A mentor and teacher to the party. A retired adventurere himself, Douven dreams of starting up his own merceneray unit or adventuring company, perhaps both.
He’s not terribly wealthy, but he’s rich enough to own a small estate from which he teaches adventurers the basics of the craft. Quite how he plans to spin this into a venture profitable enough to start his own merceneray outift, he hasn’t quite decided yet.
He knows the maor of Raven’s Bluff, and sends the party to see him after the intro adventure, telling them that “They’ve had some excitement over there lately.”
