Tellen Rapids

Tellen Rapids is ruled by a half-demon named Kozmit, who took control of the village by assassinating his father, a vrock. The village is of central importance to the campaign because of the presence of the Flickering Flame Tavern just outside its boundaries.The Flickering Flame Tavern is the meeting-place for one of the only organized groups of resistance against Night.

Flickering Flame Tavern. Andrew Ostler, an alcoholic paladin, runs this tavern, which is solely an eating and drinking establishment (there are no rooms for let). Ostler is Gifted, and his tavern is a secret gathering place for those very few others who have met the Black Unicorn.

Healer. Arthur o'the Woods, a reclusive herbalist to all appearances, dwells in this little hut abutting the forest edge. While Arthur does provide healing and herbalist services, he is also the gangleader of a small troupe of thieves and bandits that operates in the area.

Weaver. Gwyneth (called Weaver) is the townÕs weaver and seamstress, operating this shop for her living since the death of her husband seven years ago. Her husband Matthew was the son of a Knight of the Chalice and, against GwynethÕs will, sought out the lore of the Knights seeking to become one, but he was killed by the Knights of the Shadow. Their son, Tinko, is nine years old, and rather a twisted little child. Gwyneth is at her witÕs end in dealing with Tinko, and tends to border on hysteria most of the time. Her business is doing rather poorly.


The Rose Blossom (Brothel). A new business in Tellen Rapids, this was one of KozmitÕs first "improvements" to the village when he took rule over from his vrock father seven years ago. The proprietor, a tiefling scumbag named Broze, travels throughout the Tellen valley looking for beautiful women, whom he kidnaps and enslaves in this place. Broze is capable of truly amazing feats of torture when his "employees" disobey him, so they perform their jobs faithfully, if lacking in enthusiasm.

Church. This wrecked hull of a building was once an elaborate stone edifice, carved with religious symbols of great beauty. Now the stone is blackened with smoke, the roof is collapsed, and the doors boarded shut. There are a variety of secret ways to enter the building, however, though only fiends use them. The place is anathema to true priests of Javen, since the altar has been foully desecrated and the symbols within destroyed.

Mill. Solomon Miller is a Steward of Javen, and holds secret meetings for worship and ritual every week in the basement of the mill. Miller is not Gifted, though he is loyal and faithful to Javen and risks his life daily for the perpetuation of the faith. He is mistrustful of any who would claim miraculous powers in the name of Javen.
