Under The Sun
Lord Warden Faren Markelhay
Leader of Fallcrest
He’s a busy guy who sees to local matters personally. He usually has a long list of tasks (and a reserve of cash) for willing adventurers. He is married to Allande Markelhay, a wizardess.
Lord Markelhay assigned our band of adventurers the task of clearing out a nest of kobold bandits that had been attacking traders in the area. Markelhay politely kicked our heroes out of town after they exterminated the bandits, killed a young white dragon, and recovered some items that reeked of evil.
Of course, the kicking-out is actually in the form of a mission, and we’re being paid for it, so I guess that balances out.
