There is a fun new project started over at the Wizard’s D&D Community forums where members are working together to create a community module for use with the 5th edition of D&D! I am a part of the project and here is the first of the NPCs that I have been working on…
Name: Daronna Dawnforge
Stats: As Commoner, Strength (18), Constitution (18), Dexterity (15) –> Other stats to follow!
Daronna had a slightly unusual childhood in that she showed a great interest in her father’s work rather than following in her mother’s footsteps. This proved to be a source of contention with her family at first, but with time and persistence, she succeeded in winning her family over and showed a great aptitude for the work as she learned from her father.
She is well-known in the local area for her friendly manner, excellent work, and for the quality of the items (weapons, armour, etc.) that she produces. Her reputation is slowly but surely growing as people from the surrounding towns and area are starting to travel to Lastdown seeking her services and expertise.
Daronna is an unexpected yet very excellent source of information due to her interactions with adventurers coming and going through Lastdown in addition to her interactions with many of the town folk. If an adventurer is looking for information about possible adventures, quests, or other bits of information (monsters seen in the area, etc.), then there is a good chance that Daronna might know something of interest to the adventurer.
She is also well-known for her singing while working in her shop. The songs are reminiscent of Viking-style battle hymns and combined with the sounds of her hammer as she works, adds a unique and stirring touch to her singing.
Note 1: Daronna and Zahara Willowrose have known each other since early childhood and been best friends throughout the years. Something that is not well-known though is the evolution of Daronna’s and Zahara’s friendship into a full relationship.
Note 2: Daronna has a lot of respect for Fiona Fairweather and thinks highly of her. They are good friends and get together every so often to discuss events around town and relax.
Note 3: Daronna detests Valeria Adalwind and considers her to be nothing more than a pretentious, arrogant schemer that Lastdown would do well to be rid of.
