"Welcome all to the Vibrant Village of Chatwin, inhabited by only the boldest and bravest of adventurers. Should you feel brave enough, and wish to move to Chatwin, and thereby communicate with these brave souls, you will find information about how to do so at the end of the villagers' descriptions."

"Chatwin is an original village located in the World of Greyhawk (TM), hex (J4 94), about a day's journey NW of Narwell. To the west is the Welkwood Forest and the northern reaches of the Jewel River, to the north the Gnarley Forest, and Wooley Bay is two days' or so to the east. Chatwin was the site of an economic disaster some forty years ago, c. 530. Its fortunes went downhill. A couple of years back, 579, the lost treasure of Chatwin was recovered by the Chatwin Heroes."

"To get a better appreciation of the location of Chatwin, view the more detailed map, The Wild Coast through the Welkwood. It contains a Gazetteer of the areas of interest around Chatwin."

"Many new visitors to Chatwin have taken a room in the Boarding House or the Inn. To visit them, view The Residents."

He is quite taciturn but always happy to meet adventurers and sell them what they need for travels, just as long as they do not mention `orcs'. His favorite saying is, "Tankards for the beer ! Goblins for the war ! "

This variety shop contains most of the standard items needed by adventurers. Prices vary according to the distance traveled. Mahogany, a black haired, blue eyed halfling rogue, works as his assitant.

Living with him is Merton Illuminatum, [CG em T5/M4]; hp 29. Merton has studied with Trueflight so he must have some interest in larceny. Some say he claimed his quick fingers to be the `magic in my gloves,’ but that ruse was seen through by the others. Merton has also shown a propensity for magic and has studied with the mages of Chatwin. Since an altercation with a staff of withering, Merton's left arm is not all there!

The regularity of the trips became tedious, so she put her animal husbandry and veterinary skills to other uses. She is rumored to have some very special and very deadly pets.

She has turned part of the livery into a small clinic for sick animals. She has enlisted some village children, Karli and Jacob, to aid her in this endeavor.

16 Artemus Buttwyler; (NG hm B6[loremaster]) hp 26; C 15, Ch 15. At 5' 5", 168 lbs, Artemus looks like a sheep dog with his shaggy brown hair and soft green eyes. He rents this small cottage while he studies the history of the Chatwin Heroes, some of whom he met while interviewing for a job at Mindbending Tower (#6), with a mind towards producing the definitive text on them. He made ends meet, and kept himself in food, by playing, dancing and singing in the Three Towers Inn. While he had some talent, his natural shyness and good sense kept him from upstaging Gwyllin.

He has become a member of the prestigious Greenbriar College, and added some interesting spells to his repertoire. Spells: Alpha's acid stream, Alpha's hunting hound, charm, copy, lasting breath, Murdock's feathery flyer, pattern weave, phantasmal force, read magic, shield, Tenser's floating disk, unseen servant; continual light, invisibility, levitate, Maxmillian's earthen grasp, mirror image, strength, web; instant audience, Maxmillian's stoney grasp, spirit armor.

Many of Chatwin's colorful residents hang around the Inn.

There are two notable tables in the Dining Hall. The first, located in the center, has a dagger of burnished fire sticking into the top. Hanging from this dagger are four Medals of the Chatwin Heroes. This monument was placed here by Quintos as a foretelling of great deeds to come.

33 <B>Tavern</B>Tavern of the Silver Cloud Gideon Trueflight opened this establishment after his falling out at the Inn. While he has been learning the art of brewing from Proverb of Enstad, Gideon has hired Clwyd, [NG hm ??], a master brew `myerster' to make the finest beers this side of the Welkwood.

During the day Ero busily scurries about cataloging books and building book shelves. Serena teases the gruff man when their paths cross, ruffling his messy hair or hiding his glasses. She keeps busy with the day to day aspects of running a business and occasionally works copying texts. During the evenings, when all customers have left, they make beautiful music together in the private upper quarters. (with their instruments.) (Their musical instruments.) Both are followers of the Goddess of Wind. Religious observances and services held outside, all are invited, missionary work done on holy days.

36 Home of Tanner Elbrum, 19 year old human male. Rumors abounded Tan. Some said he could shape shift, that he saved Zamora from a crushing end. Others claimed that he ran from battle, yet performed bravely against overwhelming odds. He has shown a definite talent for music, particularly with his flute. He and Artemus often entertain at the village inn. In Coldeven, 582, Tan brought down the house with a rousing performance. Tanner is a flamboyant, chaotic spirit. He's been known to be especially kind to the needy and underprivileged. However, there is a dark side to Tanner Elbrum that people seldom see. While Tanner views his companions in the highest regard and cherishes their friendship, it's quite a different story when it comes to his enemies. He has a parrot companion, Oscar; a light riding horse, Whitefire, which he uses for his morning rides; and a heavy war horse, Thunder, which he takes on his adventures. Tan had not been seen, nor has he been seeing, for some time. Suddenly, calm as you please, the very bearded, and somewhat grumpy, but with his sight restored, Tan returned to the village near the end of Harvester, accompanied by a non-descript human named Wilhelm.

37 The Unseen Blade Tan Elbrum opened this adventuring guild in Planting, 582. In Reaping, 582, before he left town, he placed it in the capable hands of Shantyra the Ranger and Saugus the Hunter. In Fireseek, 583, Tanner, seeing things more clearly than he had in months, took control of his guild once more.

Saugus Simahichen , [NG em F5]; hp 42; D 18; C 15 chain +1; short sword +2. NWP: animal lore, hunting, leather working, snares/traps. Little is known about Saugus.

39 Arrow's Flight the shop of the local Bowyer/Fletcher, Eron Silverhawk [CG EM R?]. Eron is a master marksman with his long bow. He can find humor in anything even if it is a morbid subject. Not very talkative, Eron often stands alone thinking to himself, or looking at any females he finds attractive or looking over his shoulder just in case. He is of good size for an elf, 5'7", 110 lbs, with a pleasant face.

41The Knight Owls' Inn Opened in Harvester, 582, this multi-purpose establishment is a must-visit for all who come to Chatwin! Owned by Fido, the Inn is operated by Grumorald "Grummie" Featherfoot [CG gm R5]; hp 42; S 17, I 15, D 18, C 18; Dagger +2, Longtooth; short sword +1. NWP: blindfighting, read/write, riding land based, set snares, tracking; who also owns a small Pawn Shop within the Inn. At 4'1," 90lbs, Grummie has shoulder length dark brown hair that is tied back. His skin is tanned and he has oak brown eyes, and a large gnomish nose. What he lacks in height, he more than makes up for in his very outgoing, boisterous, loud, energetic type manner. Grummie specializes in archery, as he knows that no hand-held weapon will ever do much, but the right arrow in the eye will blind the biggest of brutes. Speaking of big brutes, Grummie has a special enmity towards giants. "The bigger they are ... ."

Also residing here is Kellay Darkshadow [NG hf T2]; hp 15; D 17, C 16; ring +1NWP: Disguise, Appraising, Rope Use. What is known about her comes from a brief encounter I had with her. "I'm a liberator by profession. That is, I liberate jewelry, baubles, and other riches from those who obviously have more than they need. Why they don't appreciate me and my kind more, I have no idea. You'd think they'd be glad to be rid of all that unnecessary and almost completely useless gold and gems cluttering up their mansions. Unfortunately, the wealthy (and everybody else for that matter) have no appreciation for those in my profession and are always sending the town guard after us. Luckily, the guard have yet to find me. I'm the kind of person most wouldn't look twice at. Brown hair, kinda colorless eyes, and clothes to match allow me to blend into crowds quite nicely. Oh, sure, I suppose I'm a little taller than most women, but I can easily make myself seem shorter if I have to. Besides, when you combine my height, short hair, and wiry figure, most don't even think that I am a woman!

"Lately, I've been doing a lot of traveling. You know, see the world outside the big city. Oh, and by the way, if a big guy who calls himself Scar DeathBlade asks for me, I was never here and you've never heard of Kellay Darkshadow."

as well as, Axiom D'Rune [CG hm F2]; hp 22; S 18/92, D 16, C 16. At 6'9", 280lbs Axiom is hard to miss. He has short cropped black hair, with sky blue/yellow eyes. Axiom D'rune works on the river barges that deliver supplies to the village. He spends most of his time in the bar but oddly doesn't drink like most of his sailor brethren. That is not to say he can't still be quite loud and obnoxious. He lives by the honor of the sea (working previously on an ocean Pinnance before the Captain was devoured by a kraken). He is currently looking to get out of his current place of employment and if something sounded interesting he would gladly leave it in a heartbeat.

and, as of Ready'reat 592, Boilone ibn Boilone, a gnome from Tusmit [LG gm P2(StCuthbert)]; hp 13; W 16 Ch 16; Skills: concentration +5, heal +5, hide +4, listen +5, profession herborist +4; combat casting.  He is noticeable due to his yellow boots and huge orange turban. When he's had a bit too much to drink, he tells the Saga of Yragael the Narcomancer, a rather boring tale. Since the owner Grummie Grumorald is a gnome also, few dare to tell  Boilone to shut up when he comes to the song part of the story! He is very dedicated to St Cuthbert. [Boilone was the first 3ed Ed PC to reside in Chatwin. He ventures in the Living Greyhawk campaign setting.]

42 Velvet Underground, supposed to be Chatwin's new great hot spot, this dilapidated and run down building is all that remains of the false hopes and faint dreams of the one who people knew only as the mysterious `Serpent.'.

45The Rattlesnake Tavern, hidden, some say 'well hidden,' among these non-descript buildings,  is one of Chatwin's few underground establishments. Run by the nefarious Uriah Alekeep. [At least that's what he calls himself]  Known to hold events of unsavory nature. One enters at one's own risk!
