The Staff

The Travelling Guard

When the Charter Lords travel away from home they take their travelling guard with them. The guard don't follow them into dangerous situations, however, they are there to look after the horse, crew the boat and keep the camp safe and tidy.

  • Helga Holding: A half-orc from Mivon Helga grew up around river traders and pirates, and earned her first coin on the water. Helga was the bosun of the Charter Lord’s boat crew, and was employed as a member of Rudy’s staff when the boat crew was disbanded. She now travels with the Charter Lords’ party as a bodyguard / sailor / advisor.
  • Rosie (Rosicia): An escaped Halfling slave from Cheliax. She can hold her own in a fight, but prefers to stay out of sight if she can. She approached Hebrin for a job when she saw him during the liberation of Fort Drelev. She travels with the Charter Lords’ Party as a bodyguard and lookout – however she also does the cooking.
  • Duncan: Works for Cassandra but travels with the Charter Lords’ party. He is an experienced warrior who looks after the animals and finds game.

Rulers' Roost

Once a shared house for the Charter Lords, Rulers Roost has now become the house that they use to put up visiting dignitaries.

  • Mrs Lena Egwin – is an ex-innkeeper, a widow in her later middle age, who is always referred to as Mrs Egwin. Not much passes her unnoticed and she can be intimidating when she wants, but she is also diplomatic enough when she needs to be. She is a good cook and runs the household efficiently. She will use a rolling pin to defend herself (or make her point) if needs be.
  • Ola Jardon - Ola is young and pretty, barely out of her teens. She can cook a bit and is a reasonable seamstress although she is easily cowed and a bit scared of the ‘Big World’ out there. However, she is a cheerful girl who is liable to break into a quiet dance just for the pleasure of it

Rudy’s Staff

Rudy lives in a palace in Horcroft along with his wife, Tamary, and a number of staff. He is also planning to start up a travelling theatre or entertainment company – he isn’t quite sure which yet.
