The Curse of the Barren Empyrean
The Tavern Keeper
A retired human Eldritch Knight that runs a tavern called the Desolate Crusade in the town of the Barren Empyrean.
He has recently been captured during a scouting run for the town in order to clear up the menacing Ghouls that have been attacking the town. His scouting party was scattered and chased into the marshlands by a large unknown snake that nearly decimated the entire scouting party.
