This old man sent the party a letter hat they received in Baldur’s Gate, and then met with them in Waterdeep. He seemed to be more than he appeared when they met, but his offer was simple: information and a teleportation to Hlath if they would aid the Harpers in destroying the Cult of the Dragon there.
DM’s Notes: This character really worried the PCs more than I would have expected. Maybe it was the line, “He stole my dracolich.” I don’t know. But he was an information NPC, and a plot device. He was also a character I had planned for very early on. After all, the party heard about Meldarius slaying a dracolich very early, when they first met Heywall Daysong.
