NPCs: Tancred

Tancred is the grizzled, battle-scarred barkeep of the Hole. Always ready with a sympathetic ear or piece of advice, Tancred is the keeper of knowledge for all things Beyond the Wall. Would be adventurers often look to Tancred  for rumors and news. With his missing eye, missing hand and numerous scars, he stands as a stark reminder of the dangers outside Wall's confines. Though he's not shy about his adventuring past, Tancred is strangely tight lipped about where his injuries came from.
Tancred quickly handles any disagreements that get out of hand, as the Hole is neutral territory for all. He is fiercely loyal to the owner of the Hole, Miss Maggie, and keeps her peace enforced. No matter what dangers await Beyond the Wall, there's always a cool mug of ale, and one of Tancred's tales waiting for you when you get back.


  1. Nice looking NPC. Always need a good inkeeper in a party's life, for better or worse.

  2. That "cool mug of ale" can;t be too cool with no electric refrigeration. It would only be cellar temperature unless he has some kind of magic ice machine.
