Just the Tip
Male Human Noble; Fallcrest
Faren Markelhay is the Lord Warden (hereditary lord) of the town of Fallcrest. He is in charge of the town’s justice and laws. The Lord Warden appoints a town council to look after routine commerce and public projects as well as captain of the guard, a position currently held by Nathan Faringray.
Faren Markelhay is a balding, middle-aged human with a keen mind and a dry wit. He is a busy man and sees to local matters personally, so adventurers calling on him are likely to wait a long time for a short interview. However, he is eager for news of other towns in the Vale (and farther lands as well) and never turns away someone who brings him news or waits to see him.
Lord Markelhay’s wife is Lady Allande Markelhay. She is a cool and reserved woman ten years younger than her husband. A student of the arcane arts, she uses her powers to advise her husband. They have four children; the eldest, Ernesto, is currently away in the south, living in the court of another ruler.
