The elderly half elf baron of Drakeford is starting to lose his edge. He’s usually quite cheerfull… but not always on the ball. He’s starting to forget things, and his daughter is picking up a great deal of his slack.
The late Baron was killed when the druids under the command / influence of Alek Grimbeard assaulted Castle Whitestone. Ubada reported that he found the Baron’s body (along with his guard captain and another of the castle staff) hung by its feet from the ceiling in one of the cellars of his own keep. His throat had been slit and the blood drained from his body into a stone basin of some sort. He had been ritually sacrificed by a pair of wolf brother druids.
Ariana Winterstone, his daughter; and Allonwye the Apothacary were also scheduled to be sacrificed the same way. Ubada had them removed from the manor, however, shortly before it collapsed into a giant sink-hole.
