Heroes of Hillsfar
Agaricus – Myconid sovereign living with his circle in Sporedome. While friendly with the party, he and his elders of the circle were disappointed that the party killed the Zuggtomy-corrupted Sacred Seer instead of returning her to Agaricus for punishment, as they had agreed to do. The party are no longer welcome by Agaricus’s circle, although they are not hostile to the party.
Basil Grem. A flute player of impressive skill, this male gnome plays his instrument with his hat on the ground before him. He accepts donations with an impressive grin.

Recently he has been recruited into the adventuring party called the Protectors of Elventree.

Chute – myconid sovereign living with his circle in Sporedome who has good relations with the party after they saved some myconids from derro raiders. Chute showed the party where the mind flayer Huum lived so they could petition him to use his portal to reach Szith Morcane more quickly.

Falwan Underbough is a male halfling of middle age, who acts as community leader for the new settlement of Lighthouse. His family suffered greatly from their banishment from Hillsfar. There, he was the proud owner of a bakery and his “half cakes” had a popular following among the nobles. He lost that when the First Lord re-enacted the Great Law of Humanity which forbade non-humans from being in the city other than as fodder for the arena. Falwan is friendly to most, even humans if they prove themselves. Caution is evident when he encounters humans with weapons, however.
Fayd Uldrane (FADE OOL-drain). Male human gladiator in the Hillsfar Arena and Zhentarim spy. Fayd helped the party escape with non-human captives who were slated to fight in the Arena the following day. Fayd stated that he is a free man, but fights in the Arena to pay off a debt.
