Jeremy Harper - September 9 at 1:55am

Here's a list of contacts I've come up with for my Bethorm game. I may add a few more here and there, and of course my players are free to come up with their own. The player running the merchant-adventurer Khanuma has his first wife, who is of greater experience and professional rank, as a contact (he's her third husband - it was something of a political match).

Vreemei – Pygmy Folk (Male) trader who specializes in small valuables and oddities. Vreemei is excitable and histrionic ('You take food from my family's mouths! Do you not know I have three wives and a fat mate to feed?' is a common refrain in his haggling), but his goods are of excellent quality and any news he has is reliable. Vreemei drives a hard bargain, as most of his kind do, but he's scrupulously honest. He has extensive ties in Milumanaya and Yan Kor, and has business ties with the Devisors of Soft-Clinging Beauty in Katalal. He also has many Pygmy Folk and human henchmen in his service, the most notorious of which is Big Grinner, a large (even by Nluss standards) greatsworder of questionable intelligence and almost superhuman strength. His loyalty to Vreemei is absolute.
