A place wherein this Dwarven Cleric can share his love of maps, dice, miniatures, and all things involving gaming and general geekery--not to mention the occasional witty non-gaming observations--whilst escaping from the humdrum existence of his routine Terran existence.

Hail and Well Met, fellow traveler! May my Stronghold provide a place for enlightenment and amusement, and somewhere to keep your dice dry. Enter and rest awhile.

[A to Z April] X is for Xouvyus (new NPC)

Not much is known about Xouvyas. He is one of Coldtreath’s resident “characters”--most look at Xouvyas as little more than a town drunkard. He is known for his oversized hooded robe that drapes over his frame like a tent and his enormous, bulbous, red nose peeking out from underneath the hood. His nose is framed by two piercing blue-violet eyes.

Those few who have taken the time to talk to Xouvyas have learned that he is a cleric for a god named Soalixes, otherwise known as the “God of Justice,” or the “Great Defender.” Xouvyas has searched the length and breadth of the land and believes that he is the last cleric of Soalixes, who he has taken to calling “The Forgotten God.” This revelation has struck a blow to his faith, but he is motivated by loyalty and so he continues to struggle to worship and proselytize in Soalixes’ name.

Xouvyas has a single vice: drink. He has learned enough in his travels to be a fair brewer himself, but lacks the patience or funds to ply a brewer’s trade. He seldom has funds to provide for room and board; he is homeless and keeps himself fed by using a sustaining spoon he uncovered somewhere during his many travels.

He is a renowned gossip in Coldtreath, knowing very little about anything, but quite a bit about everything. Of course, every little bit of gossip he provides is always accompanied by at least two pearls of wisdom from or about Soalixes. He is always willing to help out with a spell or two, provided some respect is shown to the Forgotten God; usually in the form of money or, preferred by Xouvyas, strong drink itself.
