NPC Notes

- Baron Halifax Supernumerary von Stencil - the relentlessly pompous patriarch of an impoverished and oversized noble family. Once a popular socialite and royal favorite until an abrupt change in the monarchy, von Stencil has been consigned to an outland estate for ten years and is now barely able to pay his few remaining servants. From the collapsing parapets of Castle Dondragard, surrounded by parched vineyards and weedy fields, he presides over his nearly worthless holdings as they fall prey to the encroaching desert.

- Numismatus, a wealthy townsman - although not a magic-user himself, he collects food-related magic items. He will sometimes loan out maps and magic items to adventuring characters, in exchange for them finding and retrieving certain items he wants to add to his collection.
